As the racial revolution continues, the conservative rag Conservative Tribune posted their meme on anti-racism above on Facebook saying that not all cops are bad and not all blacks are criminal…cops can’t be criminal? But the photo shows a heart from two hands depicting a black person and a white person. They even have the hashtag #stoplabeling. Is this their way of saying stop labeling cops as bad and blacks as criminals? Apparently, their followers don’t agree:

Moses ***** I agree with the first and third statements. The 2nd is harder to accept because blacks make up the majority of the prison population and the 3 whitest states: Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire also have the lowest crime rates. This is not racist but facts that don’t lie.

Beverly ***** The blacks are not racist – the ni****s are racist – there are good and bad in every race and racists in every race – I use the “N” word to distinguish the difference in them – I have black friends and they are every bit as disgusted with this whole Ferguson thing as everyone…and the white trash joining them will find out the hard way what they are doing is wrong!

Phil ***** Not all cops are bad but being racists runs deep in white and black alike

(Continued Below)

Glenn ***** There are white criminals. There are bad cops(black and white) and there are certainly black racists! When “labeling” an individual make sure it fits and not just arbitrary!

Thomas ***** Here’s the issue for me. ( I’m a white guy) I have plenty of friends that are not white, btw. As a white dude I’m constantly being told that race is not an issue, judge the person by that individuals traits. How is it ok for a double standard here? All the looters are using a thug pos as an excuse to loot all the while chanting hate towards white people. My problem is not knowing when enough is enough and when do I ( as a white pos) start standing up for the real Americans and my own ” race”? Am I to abandon my friendships because of this ignorance? Is this the plan handed down from my president, my America? It’s frustrating, and makes me doubt myself. I have seen more racism towards whites than any other minority during my life. Always someone Threatening to hurt a cracker. I hope these animals get stopped before the decent blacks and whites forget that we are supposed to all be Americans. However, I will not continue to keep an open mind if my Americans continue to act like gutter trash scumbags .

 

Even when the right tries to explain racism, they end up being racist. They are all in agreement that there are black criminals and bad cops. Funny thing, a cop who commits a crime, is indicted, found guilty and is serving time, well, they are a bad apple. I knew a few bad apples from the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The mentality on the right though is confusing. Many of the white conservatives are fully supportive of what the cops did in New York, Missouri, Illinois, California, Arizona and other states where white officers/deputies shot and killed an unarmed black person, yet the same people who are supportive of law enforcement, are against any tax increase that would pay law enforcement officers. They are also anti-union and are anti-law enforcement when they were ordered to remove Cliven Bundy’s cattle on public land. This is proof that conservatives only love law enforcement when black and brown folks are killed by them.

Like my previous story: Conservatives Have A Double Standard When It Comes To Use Of Police Force On Blacks, conservatives scream of injustice when law enforcement kill their own. Waco Texas and Ruby Ridge Idaho were two of the same. Obviously, the federal government was over-reaching and the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Government Information held a total of 14 days of hearings between September 6 and October 19, 1995, and subsequently issued a report calling for reforms in federal law enforcement to prevent a repeat of Ruby Ridge and to restore public confidence in federal law enforcement…yet nothing on the repeated abuse of law enforcement against black and Hispanic folks by law enforcement or even how a grand jury finds shooting or choking to death unarmed black men are justified.

Conservative Tribune just doesn’t get it and their mentality shows in their meme. Black criminals? The members’ justification of black and Hispanic criminals being a problem and the cops should do something is based upon the percentage of blacks and Hispanics in prison nationwide…which does not reflect the population of the U.S. According to the census, Population, 2013 estimate there are 316,128,839 people in the U.S. Whites make 77.7%, Blacks or African Americans make up 13.2% and Hispanics or Latinos make up 17.1% of the U.S. population, yet Blacks and Hispanics combined make up more than 90 percent of the imprisoned population, why? Because of different factors. Factors like money for attorney, basic knowledge of the law, holding someone 72 hours or released on their own recognizance and law enforcement. According to the Drug Policy Alliance:

Since the 1980s, federal penalties for crack were 100 times harsher than those for powder cocaine, with African Americans disproportionately sentenced to much lengthier terms. But, in 2010, DPA played a key role in reducing the crack/powder sentencing disparity from 100:1 to 18:1, and we are committed to passing legislation that would eliminate the disparity entirely.

Crack is cheaper than powder cocaine and many users tend to buy the cheaper-priced substance. Therefore, with punishment harsher for blacks and Hispanics, there is a larger population of blacks and Hispanics than whites in prison. So for Moses ***** to write his statement:

Moses ***** I agree with the first and third statements. The 2nd is harder to accept because blacks make up the majority of the prison population and the 3 whitest states: Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire also have the lowest crime rates. This is not racist but facts that don’t lie.

Is wrong…even when the truth is right in front of them. Yet even with all the facts, the right still won’t accept the fact that the war on drugs by former President Ronald Reagan directly affected people of color as seen on PBS called Guns, Drug and the CIA and Reagan himself apologizing that his men and women were involved in illegal covert operations: Part 1 and Part 2. This policy eventually led to what is happening today, and the conservatives still see blacks and Hispanics as thugs or illegals.

Yet with the protests going on around the U.S. and even in the cold, there is a rainbow of ethnicity standing up to racists and maybe, this may be the beginning of a new civil rights movement.
