Police shooting in Arkansas sparks protests
A fatal police shooting in Little Rock, Ark. sparked local protests Monday, in the midst of national controversy over the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.
FOX16 reported that Little Rock police officer Terry McDaniel killed 26-year-old Deon Williams by firing at least two shots from his service weapon at around 11:30 a.m. Monday. The department said in a statement that Williams was fleeing on foot from McDaniel when a handgun dropped out of his waistband. The statement said that Williams looked toward the police officer, picked up the handgun, and started to get to his feet. At that point, McDaniel fired his weapon. Williams was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The pursuit had begun when Williams fled the Chevrolet Suburban he was driving as McDaniel and another officer approached the car. According to the statement from police, the officers thought the vehicle matched a description of a stolen car that had been reported, and also had an expired license plate.
Shemedia Shelton, a friend of Williams, told FOX16 that the vehicle belonged to her and had not been stolen. Fox News
I am going to be VERY blunt in what I have to say in this post and I may offend some of the more racially sensitive out there, but quite frankly; I don’t give a damn!
Someone has to speak the cold hard truth; it might as well be me.
Little Rock police said that McDaniel, who is black, and his partner had been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated to determine whether a crime was committed and whether departmental policies were followed.
Had this Officer McDaniel not been a Black Officer I am guessing the situation may have rapidly escalated and gone totally out of control.
This nation is a powder keg, a RACIAL powder keg that is on the verge of exploding, and it is events such as this that will be the catalyst that sets off the explosion. The tension in Black communities is unbelievable.
Young Blacks feel that they have been kept down by *the man*. That *man* being the rich, White business owners and leaders in this nation. Blacks still blame the White man for their plight in life, being basically uneducated and poor; living is homes that are on the verge of falling down and so forth. They live in the ghettos; Da ‘hood.
Many young Blacks today feel that they are deprived of an education, and as usual, they blame that on the White man too! They blame that lack of education for the reason they can’t get a job, or can only get a job that pays minimum wage doing menial labor.
They blame the White man because that’s what their leaders tell them to do. They blame the White man because that’s what their parent(s) do, it’s what their friends do, it’s what the *ghetto* does, so it must be right.
It has nothing to do with the fact that so many young Blacks go to school only because they are forced to, disrupt classes for those that want an education, and once they reach an age where they can’t be forced any longer they quit to make their life on the street.
Surely so many Blacks aren’t less educated because of *peer pressure*, gang violence and simply not giving a damn? You know what I mean; “don’t be listening to these teachers, all they gonna do is fill your head with the words the White man wants you to hear…”
The *mob mentality* is there for all to see.
You don’t think so? Then explain the actions of the people in this story. Explain the actions of the rioters in Los Angles on Monday night. So many of these people are looking for an excuse to *break bad*, given that mindset, all they need is a radical type leader to light the fire and they will take to the streets, breaking, burning and destroying anything in their path.
I wonder; is that going to make their plight in life any better? Will it get them a better job or an education? Or will it perpetuate the assumption that these *hood rats* are getting the life they deserve?
I may be a racist in YOUR eyes for speaking this truth but here is one more little bite of truth for you; this is NOT the Deep South, it’s not 1960 and this isn’t about depravation of CIVIL RIGHTS.
This is about a type of people that aren’t willing to pull themselves up by the boot straps and grab the brass ring.
We are living in the year 2013 and we are ALL equal under the law, we all have the exact same opportunities to get an education, a job, a great home and a great life. We ALL have a chance to succeed or fail.
Your skin color has NOTHING to do with it.
This isn’t about RACE; it’s about having a *victims* mentality and lacking the courage and/or motivation to rise above the fray. It’s about ignoring the *RACE PIMPS* that keep you down, it’s about pride, not this stereotypical *Black Pride* thing, it’s about pride in being a HUMAN BEING and making a success of yourself.
It’s a crying shame that it won’t ever work that way.
