On May 25, an African American named George Floyd died in police custody. Four days later on May 29, a Minneapolis white cop is charged with third-degree murder for his death.
Today America is burning from coast to coast.
When an innocent white woman Justine Damond was fatally shot by a black cop – also in Minneapolis – in July 2017, there were no riots.
Mind you, the Minneapolis city police chief is a black man, as is Minnesota state‘s attorney general. And the Minneapolis mayor as well as the Minnesota governor are both Democrats. Minnesota‘s two senators are Democrats. The majority of its congressmen are Democrats while its most famous rep is arguably Ilhan Omar.
But the liberal media as usual blame Donald Trump for George Floyd’s death at the knee of a police.
Rioters this week looting in the name of George Floyd were seen crashing into banks and smashing ATMs with crowbars. Above is a scene from Union Bank in La Mesa, San Diego on May 30. The second picture below shows the bank set ablaze.
How is stealing money from cash machines restoring “justice” to the dead George Floyd? How are carting away flat screen TVs, air-cons, microwaves and other loot from stores construed as righteous acts in protest of racism?
Even Mom-and-Pop businesses owned by blacks were vandalized and destroyed in the George Floyd riots sweeping the USA.

Stoking black racial resentment by fomenting outrage
So why do the African Americans feel mired in perpetual victimhood, egged on in their outrage by white virtue signalers and social justice warriors (SJWs).
President Trump and the Department of Justice will be designating Antifa (white SJWs) as domestic “terrorists”. This is deserving for their suspected role as the agent provocateurs deliberately inflaming the current riots.
Let’s look at their ideologues to get an idea of the victimology diet that the African-American community feeds on. Frontpage Mag compiled a list of ‘America’s Top 10 Black Racists’ — which helps to illustrate the rewarding black grievance industry.
Topping the magazine’s black personalities in the list made in 2018 – it’s two years old but remains relevant – is celebrated author Ta-Nehisi Coates who is described as the “most pampered racist and foremost producer of victimology porn” in the country. Coates’ overrated award-winning book Between the World and Me is “a racist screed that masks its hatred in self-pity” according to Frontpage.
Coates is also the foremost promoter of the rubbish ‘reparations’ argument, i.e. a demand that third- and fourth-generation descendants of African slaves (who were never slaves themselves) deserve financial compensation to be paid them by the present-day American government for the slavery of their ancestors.

No.2 on the Frontpage list of black racial chauvinists is New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie.
Rounding up the rest of the Top Ten are Black Lives Matter activists (3) DeRay Mckesson and (4) Alicia Garza, Women’s March chairman (5) Tamika Mallory, Nike’s star athlete (6) Colin Kaepernick, MSNBC host (7) Joy-Ann Reid, Huffington Post columnist (8) Marc Lamont Hill, Salon staff writer (9) Chauncey DeVega and academic-cum-media celebrity (10) Michael Eric Dyson.
I’ve never before heard of the BLM personalities (3) & (4) but I can certainly agree with the magazine that opinionated writers Bouie and DeVega carry a big, black chip on their shoulder. DeVega’s Twitter timeline for example is peppered with the epithet “white trash” with which he name-calls The Deplorables and their leader-in-chief.
New York Times op-ed columnist Charles Blow and Washington Post op-ed columnist Eugene Robinson are not in the Frontpage list but this duo nonetheless are good examples of African-American men obsessed with ‘white supremacy’ and ‘white supremacists’.
Try reading the grievance mongers Coates, Bouie, DeVega, Blow or Robinson and their endless angry whinging about black victimhood, and you can begin to understand one of the triggers to the passive-aggressive rioting.
