A couple of days ago, I wrote about the shooting death of Sean Bell by police officers from the NYPD, and in that piece referenced Heather MacDonald’s write up about the incident which included a little-known fact about the shooting, and that was that the first policeman to take a shot at Bell’s car as it was moving towards them was a black officer, which puts a big dent in the theory that the shooting of Bell was “racially motivated.”
Well, to racists like NYC Councilman Charles Barron, that doesn’t matter. Suitably Flip has all the disgusting details from this race-baiting Democrat’s speech on the issue. Make sure to scroll and read it all just to see how nasty Barron gets. He calls the black officer a “house Negro”, advocates violence against the NYPD if the demands of the black community aren’t met, and does what he does best: race hustle. In other words, now – to Barron – any reason can be used to cry racism. If it’s a white officer doing the shooting, that officer is obviously racist, and if it’s a black officer doing the shooting, it’s because his white ‘masters’ tell him to.
BTW, this isn’t the first time Barron, a former Black Panther, has shown his true colors (no pun intended) regarding the race issue. Scroll down in this post to read about another racist tirade Barron went on shortly after Hurricane Katrina.
My opinion on this? Barron needs to be censured by the NY City Council. His comments are absolutely inexcusable. I’d like to think his constituency would vote him out of office over this (his term doesn’t end until Dec. 2009), but sadly, the majority probably agree with him. Fanning the flames of racism as Barron and other race-baiters do assures them of reelection. That’s one of the reasons they do it.
