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.

    Not politically correct, but correct on the facts. Fred, you are giving voice to what others feel as well.

      I’ve never been politically correct.. 🙂

      Quite a few people have said in the past, “TexasFred says and posts the things that others only think… ”

      It’s time we give voice to this subject, you’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything, and far too many Black people have fallen for the RACE PIMPS and the victim mentality..

    So what will it take to get these young black people and blacks of all ages to listen? The golden opportunity was in having a black (or so he looks) president but unfortunately the wrong black looking man got the job and has sent the wrong message. He is playing a mighty role in dividing the black segment of the population away from the rest of this society and is perpetuating the subjugated mentality for his political purposes. Too bad the majority of black people in America don’t see through his false front.

    The opportunity is tbere Fred, it has been tbere for years. The problem is and has been the message the Black Leaders like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson are delivering to tbe black youth of America..THEY OWE YOU an education they owe you a job…it’s a hands out mentality.. case and point remember tbe black lady screaming “OBAMA GIVE ME A CELL PHONE”…It is a why work mentality when you can receive mailbox money… $1000 a baby to the unwed baby machines. If anything could have changed was a black president elected could have delivered a *look at me* message, but he screwed that up too by giving more handouts…..
    As you say we are sitting on a powder keg with a fuse that has already been lit…and when it blows, it will take miracle to put it out..

    As you well know Fred it is not just the young black man that feels that the white man owes them it is a whole country just to the south of us..they feel that we should educate, cloth and feed tbeir people as well because it is the drug infested America that is the problem…

    Yes Fred the fuse is lit and God help us when it blows..

    So now CAIR, the black panthers, the NAACP have joined together to fight the oppression of the black man. What ever could go wrong. Good post Fred.

  5. LD Jackson says:

    It’s sad, really. Sad, in that it doesn’t have to be this way in America. Sad, that these young black people do have a chance to succeed, if only they would stop listening to the race baiters who only want to keep them stirred up for their own gain. That’s the real tragedy in this. It doesn’t have to be this way in America. But it is.

    You have to wonder why people like Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver are not held up to the black youth as role models.
    Carver said:
    Be clean both inside and out.
    Neither look up to the rich nor down on the poor.
    Lose, if need be, without squealing.
    Win without bragging.
    Always be considerate of women, children, and older people.
    Be too brave to lie.
    Be too generous to cheat.
    Take your share of the world and let others take theirs.

    Seems as if the easier it gets for the black community to pull itself up then more of them are not willing to work for it. Previously there was always the excuse of segregation and discrimination for not achieving. That has been removed and now that actual effort is required many of them are unable to cope. Yes, I know. The Free Cheeze mentality. Sigh.

    • Hgpsurf says:

      Those words by Carver apply to all of us no matter what race or color. We would have a great country if we all heeded those words.

    Right on Fred! I don’t think even the radical racist can dispute the logic of your blog. And if they do not like it, Well, I just hate it for them. They just need to get over themselves. It is just one of those many discrepancies in this world that they must endure and endeavor to maintain domestic stability amongst their friends, neighbors and enemies alike! When someone confronts an armed policeman who he knows is armed and well trained in the use of his weapons, What chance do I have against this person? Kill the S.O.B. Maybe we need a law that says when this occurs the policeman is required to use deadly force to protect themselves.
