Former tennis pro James Blake was in New York recently waiting for a cab when he was attacked by a cop claiming that he ‘fit the description’. Turns out Mr. Blake didn’t look as much like the guy as the cop claimed even while the commissioner of police William Bratton is trying to defend the cop’s bigoted actions. Blake has been speaking out continuously saying that the cop should be fired.
I agree 100% with what Mr. Blake is proposing. And as one person so astutely pointed out, he was accosted by some overzealous prick because of identity theft.
Since when did THAT crime require cops to use harsh physical force? It doesn’t. The fact is Mr. Blake is black. So how the cop treats him regardless of how wrong is completely irrelevant, at least to the people stuck on stupid and prepared to defend cop’s actions to the fullest regardless.
What I love most about this story is that Mr. Blake is not mincing words about why he was treated so disgracefully. Still, there are plenty of dumb Negroes that behave as if a cop’s word is law.
Peggy Hubbard, a mom from St. Louis, posted a video on Facebook that, once again, blames the victim. She blasted protesters in Ferguson for speaking out on behalf of the young black male that was caught on the anniversary of Mike Brown’s death shooting at cops. Hubbard questioned why is it that those same black people aren’t as angry about Jamyla Bolden. Little Jamyla was a six year-old playing in her housing project that was shot and killed by a stray bullet during a drive-by. While I certainly agree that the death of a child in a senseless act of violence should be a top priority to focus on, Hubbard is very misdirected in her verbal assault.
Hubbard states that if you shoot at a cop you can expect them to shoot back. So, if that were true, then the countless numbers of white people I see disobeying the police and being outright defiant should be dead too right about now. Guess what? They ain’t. Miraculously, they didn’t obtain Hubbard’s memo that not complying with police should end your life. She didn’t mention, however, the black people killed by police like Amadou Diallo, Bernard Monroe, Rekia Boyd, Samuel Dubose, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams that didn’t do shit to warrant their death sentence, that there is a huge number of black folks dying by police for no damn good fucking reason.
Hubbard wants to be the type that imagines the majority of black folks as hoodlums asking for trouble. Typical that she is being called ‘brave’ by a number of white people on the internet. I wonder how many of those would be saying that were her attack on white people’s felonious pathology rather than, yet again, picking on the safest target. Interesting that white people find a Negro hating on their own in a stupid, self-serving, asinine rant courageous. Yet if you flip that script and have a black person criticizing white people, they are insulting fools who don’t know what they are talking about. According to white people, black folks are only right when they don’t attack anyone white. I don’t recall white society calling Tim Wise heroic at any time ever. Nor have they once given him credit for having the balls to go there with a group of people that hate to hear the truth regardless of how harsh. Sort of like the same people who will protect a racist cop’s dumbassness even when he is absolutely at fault or will whine about how black folks need to get their priorities in order.
As her own son sits in jail, Hubbard bragged about the fact that she turned her own son in after she discovered that he committed a crime. She doesn’t appear to want to brag about how her shitty parenting skills might have somehow led to her child’s predicament. Yes, I know that some people can be the best parents in the whole world and still raise a tainted seed. However, I have a very strong suspicion that Ms. Hubbard’s sermonizing is more about being bitter because of her failure and less about black people needing to get their shit straight. As I said before she hasn’t spoken out at all about the black people killed by police that didn’t do anything to deserve it, just like Mr. Blake didn’t deserve what he got. But that ain’t enough for some idiots. Has Peggy Hubbard got anything to say about the two white male fugitives that escape from a New York prison recently? Come to think of it, nobody has really had much of anything negative to say about Richard Matt and David Sweat. I haven’t heard one word about what they did, how long they were going to be in prison, etc. I especially haven’t heard anybody, including Hubbard, calling them derogatory names. Not one person in the media has called them lowlifes, scumbags, thugs, losers, take your pick of the adjectives used for Negroes. They weren’t even referred to as dangerous, neither was the white female employee that helped them escape, despite the fact that she originally was going to run away with one of the criminals. She also wanted him to kill her husband besides, providing cash and a getaway car. Yet she isn’t being seen a paragon of evil or a bad person. There’s no rush to condemn the actions and mentality of three white people who saw nothing faulty about breaking the law at every turn. I’m surprised they haven’t claimed the “she is mentally ill” defense, but I suppose that’s coming down the road at some point.
White people love to make excuses for their illegal activity, even while they congratulate a moronic black female for her so-called guts to stand up against the status quo of her fellow Negro. I would very much like to know where is that same attitude when the person that’s doing something unacceptable is one of them?
