If this shyt didn't hit the airways we would have never found out that the cop was shot from friendly fire and the brother would have been prosecuted even though he used a legal weapon. Stand your ground only applies to white folks.

KK Hoods Are Apparently the New COVID-19 Fashion Statement

Police in Colorado are seeking the public’s help to identify a man who went grocery shopping while wearing a Klu Klux Klan hood this weekend, though a similar case in San Diego recently ended with the police throwing up their hands and going, “This is America.”

Some white people have used their privilege to respond to the current COVID-19 pandemic by refusing to follow public health orders to wear masks and not go out to get bad haircuts.

Others, like this man who went out to get some milk while wearing a wrinkled KKK hood, have responded by turning masks into emblems of their white supremacist desires:


According to Summit Daily, employees of the grocery store called the police after they told the man to leave and he refused.

From Summit Daily:

Dillon Police Chief Mark Heminghous said officers were dispatched on a report of trespassing at 12:41 p.m. but that the man had left the area just before they arrived at 12:45 p.m. The department is working to identify the man using surveillance footage to determine his vehicle.​

That KKK hoods and confederate flag masks are now cropping up in public places across the country says volumes about the United States in 2020.

Does leading the world in pandemic deaths make white people think America is becoming ‘great again?

I think this shows wildly different perspectives. To the writer of this article the original intent of the hood etc. is everywhere and this is a literal representation.
To a younger white college age this is just most likely rebelling against clothes that society tells him he can't wear. Being a shit stirrer basically.

I mean, you can call it privilege if you want still, but would I think the intent is the same as the original hoods at least 9/10 times? Definitely no.

4 white Missouri cops sued for alleged brutality on 68-year-old black woman and son in a Sam’s Club

In this March 23, 2020 frame grab taken from video, Marvia Gray, left and her son Derek Gray are arrested at a Sam's Club store in Des Peres, Missouri. A lawsuit filed Monday May 18, 2020, accuses four white suburban St. Louis police officers of brutalizing Gray and her adult son after wrongly accusing them of stealing a television. Gray alleges she suffered serious and permanent injuries during her arrest.

Gray alleges she suffered serious and permanent injuries during her arrest.(AP)

Four white police officers allegedly used excessive force on a 68-year-old black woman and her adult son after the son was wrongly accused of stealing a TV in a Missouri Sam’s Club, a new lawsuit claims.
Marvia Gray suffered “mental anguish” as well as injuries to her tailbone, back, shoulder, knees and arms when she was thrown to the ground and handcuffed March 23 inside the Des Peres store, the lawsuit filed Monday in St. Louis County alleges.
Her 43-year-old son, Derek, suffered a concussion, three shattered teeth and other injuries, the paperwork obtained by the Daily News states.
Marvia was especially traumatized during the incident because she feared for her son’s life following the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, her lawyer Andrew M. Stroth told the Associated Press.
“Mrs. Gray thought her son was about to be another black man unjustifiably shot and killed by the police,” Stroth said in a phone interview. “You can see in the video that she is terrified with respect to what they’re doing to her son.”
Cellphone video shot in the store and obtained by the AP begins with Gray and her son already on the ground. Derek tries to sit up at one point, but two officers forcefully push him back down, according to the video.
“Get off me,” he is heard yelling. “I’m humiliated.”
Marvia screams throughout the videos, yelling at officers, “Please leave me alone!”
Derek and an officer were treated for injuries following the incident, Des Peres City Administrator Douglas Harms told the AP.
Harms said the city’s public safety director reviewed the evidence and “unequivocally denies that the officers used excessive force to ‘beat’ the plaintiffs.”
Marvia Gray is in frail health with osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, glaucoma and other ailments, Stroth said.
Derek, who lives in Virginia and works in security, reportedly took a leave from his job to care for his mom at her home in Creve Coeur, Missouri, another St. Louis suburb.
At the Sam’s Club, Derek purchased a 65-inch Sony Bravia flat-screen TV for his mother, along with other items, Stroth said.
When they tried to load the massive TV in their 2018 Lexus SUV and realized it wouldn’t fit, they asked the store to hold it until Derek could retrieve it later.
A Des Peres Police officer in the store mistakenly thought he was stealing the TV when he returned later. The officer followed Derek to his SUV and voiced his suspicion before a store employee intervened and explained the TV was paid for, the lawsuit said.
Despite receiving this information, the officer still called the Des Peres Police Department and “falsely reported that he had ‘witnessed Gray steal a TV and place it in the parked vehicle,’” the lawsuit states.
When Derek reported the incident to his mom, they decided to return the TV due to the experience with the false allegations, the lawsuit states.
While the Grays were at the store seeking a refund, the four officers, including the one who made the emergency call, “violently and physically seized Marvia Gray and Derek Gray, throwing them to the floor, beating them, handcuffing them, then arresting them," the paperwork states.
Police Capt. Sean Quinn declined to comment Monday, citing the pending litigation.
Speaking to reporters, Marvia Gray said she was terrified as she watched the officers arrest her son.
“I said, ‘They’re going to kill him,’” Gray recalled. “I could see my son dying before my eyes.”
Marvia Gray was charged with interfering with an officer and resisting arrest.
Prosecutors are still reviewing whether to file charges against Derek Gray, according to Harms.
The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages and also names the city as a defendant.

R U shitting me? A black man rich off American hip-hop saying America wasn't built for him? No, I didn't watch the vid, but who wants titles like that from such a person?
The title is obviously made by some Al-Jazeera reporter :grin2:

if you watch from about 13th minute onwards for a bout 3-4 minutes then you'll get the gist of the video

I'm sure he provided no title inspiration at all :sneaky:

EDIT: OK, watched the section you suggested and indeed, that was a somewhat misleading title :ROFLMAO:

You have the audacity to act as though you're insulted. Whitesplaining.
