Black Lives Matter: Police Giving Out Ice Cream Is Plot To Kill Black People
The Black Lives Matter movement apparently doesn’t like ice cream. And according to their website, they will be skipping over the freebies because the vanilla treats are a plot to kill black people.
In a recent article released on their website, the Black Lives Matter movement has called for a refusal in accepting the “ice cream handouts”. Their rhetoric is calling these community policing methods, “feel-good propaganda.” This is in spite of the fact that they bring about positive changes and build trust between police and their communities.
“Policing and the system under which police work exists is bound to the enslavement, degradation, and murder of Black people and was never meant to protect us, but instead to exploit our bodies and labor to fill prisons and bolster capitalism”, says the Black Lives Matter article. They continue in a tirade that there is “overwhelming evidence that [black people] are indeed unfairly policed and killed”, even claiming that America has a “killer cop problem”.
As offensive as this bombastic writing is, possibly the most shocking allegation is that police do not “regard people as fully human”. That pitiful assertion leads to them concluding that the current system of policing needs to be defunded and thrown away in lieu of an “alternative systems for security and accountability.”
I took special notice of their emphasis on the word “police” and “policing” as it related to what they claim to be an oppressive system; and then later the lack thereof of the word “policing” in their solution. Rather they propose a disempowered system of security and accountability.
