Americans are shaken and horrified after watching the Facebook Live video of four African-Americans beating a mentally disabled white teen who they made drink toilet water and screamed racial threats at him. As the video below details, the four have now been charged with hate crimes. But, a Black Lives Matter activist isn’t concerned about the victim.
Just as Democratic strategist and CNN Contributor Symone Sanders, Shaun King placed blame on Donald Trump for the attack. In an op-ed in the New York Daily News, King devoted an entire paragraph to blaming Trump for this assault by these black racists.
I hate violence. Nearly 100 people are killed with guns per day in this country. Every 98 seconds someone is sexually assaulted in this country. Hate crimes are on the rise from coast to coast. Our incoming President of the United States admitted that he sexually assaults women. Women all over the country came forward to allegedly confirm it. His first wife, in a sworn deposition, said that he raped and brutally assaulted her. Ivana Trump later said she didn’t want the allegation to be considered in a literal or criminal sense.
King said that he doesn’t need to express outrage about this racist hate crime committed against a white teen. Instead he says that justice is being served faster because the victim is white. What he fails to understand is that justice is being served quickly because the thugs provided and promoted the evidence. Not to mention it’s in the god damn Constitution under the 6th Amendment.
In case he forgot what the 6th Amendment was here it is:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
King continues his disgusting diatribe by trying to say these thugs aren’t associated with Black Lives Matter, so he and the movement bear no responsibility. But if we use his own logic of blaming Donald Trump, he is also responsible for this crime since he has inflamed and stirred racial tensions as a Black Lives Matter Leader. But, in typical King mode, he takes the opportunity to blame white people.
What’s most disturbing is that I hardly see many whites who are particularly angry about the crime speaking sympathetically about the victim. They are mainly using it to advance their racist agenda and demonize random black folk who had nothing to do with such a thing. Furthermore, I have routinely seen tens of thousands of African-Americans standing up and fighting and protesting for white victims of police brutality and toxic masculinity. The Alt-Right Movement does not care about violence in this country. Thousands of whites murder people every year, but you’d be hard pressed to find a protest or march headed by their movement on white on white crime.
King, who like Rachel Dolezal is white, has a race obsession. He defines people by their color. He uses identity politics like a weapon to smear people. America is tired of it. The presidential election proved that. As Americans we are all equal, including white people. And it’s a hate crime to attack someone for their race as those four Chicago thugs did.
