(Tea Party 247) – If you want to protest police brutality and corruption within law enforcement, that is a cause most Americans can get behind. The claims, however, that this is solely a racial issue are not entirely honest and just proves how much the media is fueling the racial divide in America, and unnecessarily so. If “black lives matter” why don’t they seem to matter when it comes to black on black crimes?
George Floyd died as a result of the police officer’s aggressive actions but when the same kinds of actions are taken by black officers, it just doesn’t seem to fit the left’s narrative that white people are just racist.
Currently the George Floyd story has dominated news cycles on all major leftist media outlets including CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post and the narrative we’re supposed to be subscribing to is focused on white police brutality towards blacks and how it’s effecting their communities but a video of an extremely aggressive black cop out of Mississippi that has gone viral proves just how shallow this narrative truly is.
The Western Journal reports:
The underreported video shows a Jackson police officer, identified as Myron Smith by the Jackson Free Press, with his hands around an apparent suspect’s throat. The footage was first seen on Friday.
The cop and the apparent suspect seen in the clip are both black.
With the young man pinned against the car, Smith yells at him while bystanders urge the officer to relent. Like Floyd, this man also complains that he cannot breathe while being restrained.
Disregarding the complaints, the officer continues his actions.
While this suspect did not die, like Floyd did, the disparity in the media’s coverage of the attack, especially when it’s a narrative that is dominating the news cycle, is shocking.
Meanwhile in West Jackson 😩😫😩😫😩 we really need more officers! These guys are over worked & don’t have adequate back up!

So far, it appears that only local media and a few national outlets are covering the video.
Site-wide searches on the websites of CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post show that the clip has not been reported on yet.
The video is more relevant now than ever and could help the nation have a real conversation about the direction of policing in our country.
As the new clip proves, police violence is not simply a white-on-black problem.
This is clear evidence that the left is looking to divide the country along racial lines. In regards to the George Floyd incident, the left insists the problem is white-on-black police brutality and that blacks are the victims of white racism. The truth, however, is that the focus should really be on the problem of corrupt law enforcement officers and how to root them out.
Excessive force and brutality must not be tolerated no matter the color of the victims or the aggressors. If the left actually cared about police brutality and the victims they would be insisting that all incidents be reported the same yet incidents like the one in Mississippi seem to be brushed underneath the rug.
What happened to George Floyd was wrong. What happened to this young black man in Mississippi was wrong. Until we can be honest about the real problem, stop with the race wars, and come together as Americans, nothing will ever change.
