It’s heart-breaking and it makes me furious that a government-hating, assault-rifle-toting white sovereign citizen and alleged “patriot” can actually shoot real bullets at police with the stated intent to kill them can be safely overcome and taken into custody…
…but a young black man known in his neighborhood to be mentally ill, *possibly* carrying a small knife, gets shot dead (at least 6 shots) by 2 white police officers IN UNDER 30 SECONDS because the cops allegedly “feared for their lives.” (Note: the police officers say that the man was “brandishing his knife” in an “overhead grip” – but I’m here to tell you that I’ve seen the video of that shooting, and that is a flat-out LIE. Both his arms were at his sides when he was shot.)
Well, I say BULLSHIT.
If you think a white man carrying an assault rifle in a the local Kroger is just another “good guy with a gun” and all-around regular citizen practicing his 2nd Amendment rights, and at the same time, you tell me that an unarmed black kid who may or may not have stolen a few cigars is a dangerous thug who deserves to die, that makes you a racist.
That twisted double standard is the definition of right up front racism.
And if you don’t like that designation, I guess that’s just too damned bad, isn’t it?
Try not to be a racist and I won’t call you one. See how simple that is?
Tell me that a black man has a right to carry an assault weapon into Chipotle because he’s a “good guy with a gun” and it’s his 2nd Amendment right to do so – and if you can’t do that, slap that “racist” label on your forehead and wear it with pride.
