The BBC spoke to Brandon Tatum and they assumed since he was Black that he had drunk the Democratic Kool Aid and would agree with everything they tried to say about systemic racism in policing within this country. That’s because most of them do not know any Black people and they assume they can’t think for themselves. Brandon Tatum showed them just how wrong they could possibly be.
Tatum told the BBC that racism is not systemic in the police departments and that police officer Derek Chauvin did not get a fair trial. Tatum claims that race baiters like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and BLM leaders are just in it for the money. By creating a narrative that all policemen are racists they can attract a large number of donations for themselves.
“This was not a monumental case. Policing in America is not inherently racist, we don’t live in a racist county.”
“We don’t have a problem with racism in our country. We have a problem with people not following the law. We also have a problem with politicians making up things so they can get re-elected. That’s exactly what’s been happening, and that’s why you never see anything change. They’re lying to us.”
“Black people commit over half the violent crimes in this country and only make up 13% of the population. They commit over half of the murders in this country, but only make up 13% of the population.” That’s why officers are policing black people more.”
According to 2019 FBI crime statistics, black people committed 27.4% of all crimes and 53.3% of all murders and non-negligent manslaughter.
Tatum then outlined his case against the media’s strategic racial narrative by highlighting the death of Tony Timpa, a white man who was suffocated to death during an arrest. The case was similar to the death of George Floyd, Tatum said, “but because he was white, we don’t hear about it and nobody talks about it.”
“Do you understand there are black police officers, too, in many of these majority-black cities?” he asked the BBC host. “Are they racist? No, that’s not the case.”
Activists and politicians are “riding the wave of dead black people in order to make money and get political leverage,” Tatum said. The BBC host then quickly ended the segment and thanked Tatum for his appearance.
