Campaign ads are usually a risky dance on a precipice with danger of falling down a slippery slope at any time. The claims of a Joe Biden campaign ad take that precipice to new heights and comments by Brandon Tatum give him a push down a very steep slope.
Biden’s ad begins with his smarmy voice asking the question: “Why in this nation do black Americans wake up knowing they could lose their life in the course of just living their life?”
His VP running mate, Kamala Harris, gets to add her two bits to get equal time in the campaign, but the message is set in the opening sentence: That all blacks fear for their lives from the moment they wake up in the morning, and that they’re helpless victims that can only be saved from their plight by voting for the Biden Harris ticket on November 3rd.
There’s hidden implication that the number one (among many) nemesis of black Americans currently resides in the Oval Office and by extension all unwoke white Americans.
Ben Shapiro cogently destroys Biden’s assertion that all 42 million black Americans wake up in fear for their lives every day. But equally convincing are the counter arguments made below by two prominent black Americans, Brandon Tatum and Candice Owen.
Brandon Tatum (at the 6:33 mark below) says plainly, “I don’t fear police officers not one bit because I ain’t doing crime. And if they accidentally identify me as a criminal, I’m gonna comply with what they tell me to do. How is that so hard?”
“99.9 % of these shootings of black men were 100 % avoidable by black men. 100% avoidable by black men.”
“If you ain’t selling dope, the police don’t interact with you. If you ain’t taking them on a high-speed chase, they don’t interact with you. If you’re not selling lucy cigarettes after getting arrested 40-plus times, they don’t mess with you. If you ain’t beating up your baby mama and got a warrant for your arrest for sexually assaulting somebody, they don’t confront you.”
“If you’re not getting pulled over for the 30th time like Philando Castile, you’re probably not going to end up with a negative interaction with the police officers.
If you’re not walking in the middle of the street and trying to fight a police officer for his gun, like Michael Brown, then you won’t get shot.
If you’re not high on pcp running down the street pointing a knife at people like Laquan McDonald, you won’t get killed.
Do I need to go on?
Rashard Brooks, if you’re not getting DUI, and you’re not out on probation, then you don’t interact with police and you won’t get killed.
Do y’all need me to keep going?
Big Eric Garner, if you know you overweight, out of shape, you got a heart condition, you know you ain’t taking care of your body, you know you can’t run from here to the corner without being out of breath and having a stroke, then why are you resisting arrest. And you know you wrong.”
Tatum goes on to point out the hypocrisy of athletes and celebrities who celebrate the lives of these black criminals as if they’re innocent victims.
The black individuals Tatum named probably do and should wake up each morning in fear for their lives. They don’t know who’s going to catch up with them first, the person they crossed or the police.
What’s the first reaction of a criminal when confronted? They either fight or run. They very rarely comply or confess.
Tatum is an ex police officer. He says the best choice would be to comply.
In the recent case of of 18-year old Deon Kay in Washington DC, when police encountered Kay, he raised his arm holding a gun and police, not knowing his intent, fired one shot that hit Kay in the chest and killed him.
Kay’s accomplices were apprehended by the police nearby. They all complied with police instructions at the scene. They were not shot and they’re all still alive.
Candice Owen blasts Biden’s portrayal of black Americans as victims and says it’s constructed carefully to keep black Americans on the “victimhood plantation.” She’s been lambasted and received death threats for sharing her perspective.
Joe Biden is perhaps, at this point, a witless pawn being used to perpetuate a pathetic, insidious and subtly racist agenda, which will do little to liberate black Americans but would secure the left’s grip on power.
