Blue Lives Matter has posted a video that should give pause to anyone disposed to believe an accusation of racial bias against white cops [VIDEO: NAACP President Claims He Was Profiled On Stop, Then Chief Releases Video, by Officer Blue, Blue Lives Matter, May 15].
Unsurprisingly, it’s gone viral.
The president of the Palmetto State’s Timmonsville NAACP, Jerrod Moultrie, flatly lied about what happened when a cop pulled him over for failing to signal a turn. He posted a lengthy fictional exchange on Facebook, since removed, detailing the police officer’s alleged racial harassment.
The bodycam belies the man’s claims, as even The Root readily admitted. The officer was unfailingly polite.
Like the “racial slurs” at the Air Force Academy’s prep school for students who don’t belong at the Air Force Academy, which were the work of a black kid, and the the “lynching” in New Hampshire that was no such thing.
We await editorials in The New York Times and invitations from former Attorney General Eric Holder suggesting a national conversation about hate hoaxes.
