The issue at hand is not the verdict of the Derek Chauvin trial itself but with the interpretation and narrative about it and the verdict.
But first, here is what Biden said about it:
“It was a murder in the full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism the Vice President just referred to — the systemic racism that is a stain our nation’s soul; the knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans; the profound fear and trauma, the pain, the exhaustion that Black and brown Americans experience every single day.”
Let us be honest not partisan hacks or BLM activists. The fact that Chauvin’s actions or trial ripped the blinders off of the systemic racism is hogwash. It did nothing of the sort. It revealed no systemic racism.
It did not in the trial do that. Systemic racism, or what is typically meant by it, has little to noting to do with the charges or results. Where is that case?
The case was not about racism or a racial motives. Just because you have a black suspect, it is not racism. You would have to say but for the fact Floyd was black it would not have happened, or have gone the way it did. You don’t have that.That case was not tried.
Lost in this case is the fact that he was a suspect for giving fraudulent payment to a store. The reason for approaching him was clear. It was not harassment because he was a black man. He was not singled out for race.
So very odd that, for a case that was billed far and wide as a prime example of systemic racism, it was not really about racism at all. It was about police brutality or misconduct. It was about whether Chauvin caused Floyd’s death. It would have been the same if it were a white person. But his race was not a factor of the brutality. It was not proven so.
Yes, no need for all the disclaimers that it was the correct verdict. And it was not wrong. But the case was not about what we are being told it was all about. Why can’t they be honest about the entire case and circumstances involved?
That systemic racism narrative does not line up with the facts or trial. The trial itself was not about racism. It was about three counts of charges for his wrongful death.
Biden went on to say in his WH remarks:
“The murder of George Floyd launched a summer of protest we hadn’t seen since the Civil Rights era in the ‘60s — protests that unified people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose to say, “Enough. Enough. Enough of the senseless killings.”
Enough of the senseless killings? (plural) But there was reason for the confrontation of Floyd which occurred that day. Biden suggests there is an unending stream of “killings.” The only unending stream of shootings and homicides, occurring on random innocent people by the way, goes on every day in Chicago and NYC.. Yet Joe never talks about those numbers of killings. Not to mention volumes of killings of cops across the country.
He neglects to mention a summer of riots and looting that resulted, which he never talks about. It took him over 3 months to even mention the violence when they occurred. That rioting was one hell of a lot of unification, wasn’t it?
People did unite over the wrongful death but not the “systemic racism” narrative the Left and media continually postulated. But it seems there is never enough of that.
Here is what else Biden said:
“They (people of color) don’t have to worry about whether their sons or daughters will come home after a grocery store run or just walking down the street or driving their car or playing in the park or just sleeping at home.”
No, they have to worry about that in Chicago, NYC etc., but not at the hands of cops.
“And this takes acknowledging and confronting, head on, systemic racism and the racial disparities that exist in policing and in our criminal justice system more broadly. “
The systemic racism is not the culprit of murders, unless you are counting the thugs and gangs in the street as systemically racist. There are racial disparities though that Joe and Democrats never want to address. Over and out.
This racism narrative is gross negligence of reality.
