Knife fights are normal

 Here's the quote from one of the BLM activists about the recent tragic case of a teenage girl going berserk with a knife and trying to stab two other girls.

“Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons,” tweeted longtime activist Bree Newsome. “We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene & using a weapon against one of the teenagers. Y’all need help. I mean that sincerely.”
Her other comments include the idea that "we don't need White police officers to show up to handle our children".  This is a perfect example of seeing everything solely through the prism of race, no matter what, in which anything a White person does is bad and innately racist.  If it had been a White girl stabbing other White girls and the officer who shot her was Black, how would the situation have been reported, what kind of reactions wouild we have seen?  If the officer didn't shoot her and she managed to kill the girl pressed up against the car, what would have been said then, that it was OK since girls having knife fights is just part of the community?  Somehow I don't think so.
But at least Twitter is full of very zingy retorts to this racist woman, and many of the retorts are from Black people.  So not everyone is crazy.
But too many people are.

  1. Hey bree - IF y'all handled your children properly the 'white cops' wouldn't need to show up to keep them from harming each other. But ya don't.
