As you might have noticed, it has become de rigueur to regard whiteness as a very bad thing. In a USA Today article “America’s overdue reckoning with white supremacy: ‘We have allowed evil to flourish” the lily white liberal Kirsten Powers goes to great efforts in an attempt to purge herself of her original sin. There is nothing more insufferable than the self-righteous virtue signaling white liberal. The article makes a reference to George Floyd.
Then we have an even more overt message- whiteness itself is evil. Kesha Hamilton is a Michigan school board member.
Hamilton made a statement to Fox News
“Whiteness defined is ‘white racialized identity (which) refers to the way that white people, their customs, culture and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups are compared,” she said.
“Whiteness is a construct, a normalization with a foundation in white supremacy, recent examples of the normalization of whiteness with a foundation of white supremacy are the murder of George Floyd, the massacre of Black residents in Buffalo, NY, the attempted kidnapping of MI Governor Whitmer, the attack on our Democracy on January 6th, 2021, inconsistencies of our criminal justice system, etc.”
Not sure how the attempted kidnapping of Gretchen Whitmer or Jan 6 was racist, but whatever. However, suggestion speaks to something we’ll get to in a moment. Underlying all of this current hatred is the George Floyd tragedy. Then earlier this month irony paid a visit. On January 7 Tyre Nichols was beaten by by five black cops in Memphis and three days later he died. A Grand Jury was convened and all five were charged with murder. If you thought that this awful incident would calm this nonsense down, you’d be wrong. It turns out that 5 black cops beating a black man to death is the fault of- you guessed it- white supremacy.
CNN commentator Van Jones has sparked a backlash for suggesting the cops who beat Tyre Nichols may have been ‘driven by racism’ – despite them all being black.
The video released on Friday night shows Nichols, 29, crying out for his mother multiple times during the brutal January 7 assault, which took place just a few blocks from his home. He died three days later.
Jones, one of CNN’s star liberal commentators, wrote Friday that black people ‘are not immune’ to the effects of anti-black racism and that the narratives of police violence should never be as simple as ‘white cop kills unarmed black man.’
“Charging the officers who brutalized Tyre is not enough,” Bush continued. “Our country will continue to sanction the taking of Black lives with impunity until it embraces an affirmative vision of public safety and dismantles its racist policing system rooted in enslavement and government control. And let’s be clear: merely diversifying police forces will never address the violent, racist architecture that underpins our entire criminal legal system. The mere presence of Black officers does not stop policing from being a tool of white supremacy.”
If you think the Memphis police officers had to be white in order to exhibit anti-Blackness, you need to take that AP African American Studies course Ron DeSantis just banned.

The above are but only four of the many shameless race hustlers in the country. These derelicts are not helping anything. Instead they are making race relations worse while attempting to boost their profiles and egos with their incendiary and idiotic rhetoric. What happened to George Floyd and what happened to Tyre Nichols is terrible but it does make clear that, contrary to what the above race hustler hatred above suggests, it’s not always about race. Better police training is in order, but so is telling your kids to comply with cops no matter what. The details can be addressed later. Inconvenience is one thing. Dead is another.
Oops, there’s one more

The definition of a “race hustler,” is anyone who uses race to demonize an entire group in general for what some individual(s) did that was criminal.
These black officers did somethings that need to be adjudicated as to if the acts were criminal of just proper law enforcement for the situation.
Then, if found guilty, each officer should be punished in relation to his crime, and only his crime.
No one else should be punished, held up in traffic for hours while idiots “demonstrate,” cost their livlihoods while idiots burn and loot businesses, or terrorized for the color of their skin.
Race hustlers are always looking for ways to make a buck for themselves off of some particular criminal who could never afford to pay.
It’s important to find out why these 5 officers killed Nichols. Did Nichols do something that enraged them? Did a previous call have them already in a state of rage? Are they just homicidal maniacs? Whatever is found, it doesn’t lessen the crime, but what we know for sure as, just like most cases, it’s not racism that provoked it.
Some of the minority population who live in Memphis (white people) are alledging that the almost all black city leadership and police had allowed known gang members join the police.
It is being alledged that 3 of the 5 officers in the Memphis PD beating of Tyre Nichols were members of the Vice Lords gang and under their direction.
A purge and cover-up started immediately after this man, a social media “influencer” was killed.
It would be interesting to find out (I’m sure it would be racist to even ask) why kind of quotas and “diversity” Memphis PD had been pursuing and if that compelled them to place unqualified black people on the force.
Well, racism is stupid. So, it follows, those who employ racism to push their agenda are stupid. Those who desperately try to inject racism into EVERY INCIDENT OR OCCURRANCE are stupid.
Anyone that is convinced by them is also stupid, and there are a lot of them.
