So every one of you is just going to sit there and pretend that you do not see that when it comes to the enforcement of the laws in America the rules only apply to black people?
I mean come on now, I would understand if this happened in a red state with a red state Republican Governor, but last time I checked the state of Michigan had a Democratic Governor.
How then are we to reconcile the blatant disparities in the way the laws are enforced when white people stand in defiance of the laws as when blacks demonstrate against state-sponsored terrorism?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. What’s important to appreciate however, is that in every instance that there are defiant white protestors who are openly breaking the laws, they are generally heavily armed and there are no cops in sight. Where there may be a cop in sight they are there merely as observers, or in may instances as was reported in Charlottesville racist march in which a young woman was murdered the cops seemed to be active cheerleaders to the prevailing anarchy.
In fact, this is not about the stay at home orders as a result of the COVID ‑19 virus over the last several weeks.
This was what happened when the FBI tried to arrest lawbreakers in the Bundy Ranch standoff.
Cliven Bundy’s dispute with the federal government dates to 1993, when Bundy began to graze his cattle on public land while “knowingly refus[ing]” to pay fees or obtain the proper permits, according to the complaint. The fees were reportedly as low as $1.35 per cow per month.
In 1998, a federal court ordered Bundy to remove his cattle and began levying fines against him, but the situation did not come to a head until more than a decade later, when the US Bureau of Land Management made plans to seize 1,000 of Bundy’s cattle.
Cliven Bundy, the father of Malheur national wildlife refuge occupiers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, was eventually charged with six federal crimes stemming from his confrontation with the federal government in 2014.
The charges, filed on the same day that the final four occupiers of Malheur surrendered to law enforcement officials and one day after his arrest in Portland, Oregon, marked a stunning turn in a two-decades-long dispute over Bundy’s illegal grazing of cattle on federal land.
WHERE BLACK PEOPLE STAND UP FOR THEIR RIGHTS THE SCENES ARE DIFFERENT
These are the scenes that play out when Black people protest or demand justice. Not only does the area become a war zone but they are beaten shot and have all types of state-sanctioned abuse heaped on them.
