‘Not Everything Is About RACE!’ – Black McKinney Resident Says THUGS Are to Blame For Police Response
A black man who says he lives in the McKinney community says that the racist narrative around the video released of a police pulling his gun on kids is false, and that thugs are to blame for the altercation.
Here’s a screencap:
Here’s the text from Benet Embry’s post:
Oh, I say and I say it again, ya been had! Ya been took! Ya been hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amok! MediaTakeout.com posts a story showing only 7 minutes of a 30 minute ordeal, makes it racial and all the activist come a running. Look, I LIVE in this community and this ENTIRE incident is NOT racial at all. A few THUGS spoiled a COMMUNITY event by fighting, jumping over fences into a PRIVATE pool, harassing and damaging property. Not EVERYTHING is about RACE. WE have other issuses that NEED our attention other flights of made up make believe causes.
This is the problem I have with the video too, it does appear that the cop was too aggressive but we don’t know the complete context. Other black people who discovered this post are now attacking Benet as an “uncle tom”:
The other responses were just as bad if not worse.
Let me just say this – both sides can be right about this. If Benet’s description is accurate then the cops had good reason to be there because thugs were really threatening a private pool party. That doesn’t take away from the very real possibility that one cop acted too aggressively. So why not wait until more facts come out on this case?
The cop has been put on administrative leave. One kid was arrested. A protest is planned for later today. Of course.
