If anything is going to end racism once and for all, I don’t think it’s going to be a handout.
The insanity started when Mic published an article last week titled “23 Everyday Actions Punishable by Death if You’re Black in America.” Let’s take a peak at their “examples.”
The first thing you can be “killed” for us “failing to signal a lane change,” which is referring to Sandra Bland… who committed suicide. I’d really love for these idiots to provide be the statistics on how many blacks are killed by police for failing to signal a lane change each year.
In regards to Philando Castille, they cite it as proof that you can be killed for riding in your girlfriends car with a child in the back. I’d also love the statistics on how many blacks are killed in those circumstances each year. For this year at least, I think that figure is close to one.
You can watch a video about the article, as celebrity guest idiots read off the list.
Pink says Eric Garner was killed for “selling cigarettes at a corner store,” when in reality he died of a heart attack while resisting arrest.
Rapper Chance says Freddie Gray was killed for “making eye contact,” but according to the long line of acquittals he died trying to hurt himself in the back of a police van.
Traji P. Henson, who has a history of lying about racial profiling, insists that Alton Sterling was killed for “selling CDs outside of a super market.” The truth of the matter is, he was threatening people with a gun and then resisted arrest. In the struggle, he tried to pull that gun on police and was shot. CDs had nothing to do with his death.
Pharell has easily the worst of the bunch when he says Trayvon Martin was killed for “wearing a hoodie.” There was a criminal trial and a Justice Department investigation that proved Martin was attacking and trying to kill George Zimmerman. Both a jury and the feds found that Zimmerman acted in self-defense and ruled the shooting to be justified.
And of course – the best part is when they demand $150 billion to “end racism.” Alicia Keys gives a shoutout to a petition that reads, in part:
The way to ameliorate the costs of making things right are directly equal to the cost of the Apollo Moon Landing. $150 billion directed at poor communities over the next 10 years, will provide access to equal education, healthcare, quality housing, training and jobs, nutrition and an overhaul of the Criminal Justice System.
Yes – they don’t like the circumstances of how 23 people died and now you owe them $150 billion – or $6.5 billion per death.
And people wonder why their movement gets mocked.
