Amid an emotional national discussion about race relations and law enforcement, a San Diego councilwoman has apologized amid a call for her to resign after saying there is racial profiling “because blacks are shooting blacks.”
In the aftermath of a series of deadly encounters between police and black men around the country, councilmember Myrtle Cole held a community meeting in the Encanto neighborhood in her district on July 19 and 200 people showed up; residents expressed their fears and frustrations. Council President Sherri Lightner attended, as did councilmembers Todd Gloria, David Alvarez and Lorie Zapf. Tuesday, in thanking them for attending, Cole made the comments about racial profiling.
How dare a black point out the real problem.Black complain police shoot them but who is to blame? Could it be the culture of blacks which glorifies violence and heralds thuggery. Could it be an unwillingness to stand up and take responsibility for their own lives? Could it be the constant claims of victim hood? Could it be the constant claims of uncle tommery if a black works to get ahead?
So we have a black pointing out that blacks are victims of their own doing. We are supposed to follow the narrative that if only the police would allow criminal acts to go without challenge that black crime would abate and black deaths would stop. For that some blacks want her to resign because the truth is to painful
