Single black mothers, it seems you are the blame for while police officers are shooting your sons. At least that’s what a Wisconsin sheriff thinks. David Clarke, a Milwaukee County sheriff spoke out against the NAACP questioning the shooting death of a black man in Muskogee, Ok at the hands of a white police officer. Last week the Muskogee Police Department released footage taken by officer Chansey McMillin’s body camera while he was involved in the fatal shooting of Terence D. Walker. McMillin was called to a church on Jan. 17, when a 911 dispatcher reported Walker was armed with a gun at a church and threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend. While McMillin was patting Walker down, he fled the scene with McMillin giving chase. As Walker ran, he dropped his gun and picked it up prompting McMillin to open fire killing him.
The local area NAACP have criticized the shooting claiming police officers are acting in a “shoot first, ask questions later” manner when it comes to black men. Clarke, who is black slammed the historical organization for questioning the police’s actions. Clarke appeared on Fox & Friends earlier today and stated:
This once proud organization that was a force for good has relegated itself into irrelevancy, and I challenge anybody to name the last significant accomplishment that the NAACP has achieved in the United States for people of color. This organization has become nothing more than a political propaganda entity for the left.
Mkay bruh. The same organization you’re shading is one of the reasons why you ARE a sheriff! Clarke went on to blame single mother homes as a reason why black men are being gunned down.
The discussion we need to be having and the NAACP can lead it — stay off the police — is why is the stuff happening, and what are we going to do about it. The number one cause of this is father-absent homes. So what are we going to do in terms of having more effective parenting, more role modeling, more engaged fathers in the lives of these young black men so that we don’t have this behavior.
