Why isn’t Minneapolis shooting getting attention?
Another police killing has taken place in Minneapolis, and the officer didn’t even get out of his patrol vehicle before shooting. Have you seen rioting, burning and looting in the streets of Minneapolis? Have you seen Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson decrying this killing of an unarmed woman as another racist police attack? Neither have I.
Could it be because the officer was “of color” and the murdered victim was not? Could it be that it doesn’t fit the Sharpton/Jackson agenda of inciting riots and profiting from exhibiting their usual racist outrage because this time the color was reversed and only black lives matter? Hmmmm.
