But Republicans Do It All the time
Tonight my racism chase takes me to the island of Manhattan.
I do not care if you’re the president of those divided states or simply a hard working young black man, it is exhausting out here having to deal with the dreaded excessive color arousal syndrome.
“A 19-12 months-previous college scholar from Queens says he was handcuffed and locked in a jail cell after buying a $350 designer belt at Barneys on New York’s Madison Avenue because he’s “a younger black man.”
Trayon Christian advised NBC 4 New York on Wednesday that he saved up from an element-time job for weeks to buy a Salvatore Ferragamo belt at Barneys.
When he went to the store to buy it in April, he says the checkout clerk requested to see his identification. After the sale went by and he left the store, he was approached by police a couple of block away, and asked “how a younger black man such as himself could afford to purchase such an expensive belt,” in accordance with a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Officers hauled Christian to the local precinct, the place he confirmed police his identification, in addition to his debit card and the receipt for the belt, the lawsuit says.
Police nonetheless believed Christian’s identification was faux, and ultimately referred to as his bank, which verified it was his, in keeping with the complaint. Christian, who has no prior arrests, was released.
He informed NBC four New York that questions have been racing by way of his thoughts while he went by means of the painful expertise of being handcuffed and taken to a cell.
“Why me I suppose because I’m a young black man, and you realize, folks do a bank card scam so that they in all probability thought that I used to be one in all them,” Christian stated. “They probably suppose that black individuals don’t have cash like that.”
He later returned the belt to Barneys as a result of he says he “didn’t wish to have nothing to do with it.”
He’s suing town and the luxurious division retailer for unspecified damages on account of “nice bodily and mental distress and humiliation.” [Source]
Younger man, I hope you win your lawsuit and get enough money to purchase a thousand Ferragamo fits.
Lastly, the right is upset with democratic congressman, Alan Grayson, who declared in no uncertain terms that the tea get together and the KKK was pretty much the identical factor. (“If the hood suits”)
Over on Fox they’re calling it race baiting. Pot meet kettle. Sean Hannity was beside himself with rage. He introduced in considered one of his home Negro buddies, Niger Innis (yes, that’s his identify) to cheer on his hypocritical rant.
Niger must have forgotten about Sean’s good friend, Hal Turner. But this is what home Negroes do, they go alongside to get alongside.
Anyway, I like this commentary from somebody named Michelle (Obama) Gardner.
“I ponder if Hannity will ever invite his new colleague Ben Carson onto his show to debate his long history of race baiting. So, its all superb and dandy when Carson (and the entire GOP for that matter) discuss with Blacks Liberals as “slaves” and the Democratic Occasion as a “plantation” and Obamacare because the worst thing since slavery. In the meantime, they’re indignant at heated racial rhetoric coming from the left Is not referring to African Americans as slaves the peak of racial insensitivity given the historical past
Yet Republicans do it all the time, particularly Black Republicans.
They lash out all the time on the Black neighborhood for rejecting them. So, moderately than responding to that rejection like mature adults they whip out the slave references and hide behind their pores and skin coloration to justify such irresponsible rhetoric. They then go on Conservative media and embarrass themselves further by repeating such nonsense amongst people who frankly have already got misconceptions concerning the Black group. They get patted on the head for being “courageous” , “telling it like it is”, “considering for themselves”, “not being Laptop”, however primarily for saying what White conservatives assume, but might never ever say.
What’s extra is that this sort of factor doesn’t occur with other groups. Give it some thought. Most Jews on this country are Democrats. But, Republicans wouldn’t dare refer to Liberal Jews as having a “focus camp” mentality or the Democratic Get together as being a “concentration camp”. Most importantly you could not pay a self-respecting, Conservative minded, Jewish particular person enough ferragamo belt men price cash to stand in entrance of CPAC, or Values Voters Summit, or a Christian Coalition Convention, or Faux Newz and say some crazy Platåskor shyt like that!!!!
