LeBron James Claims Black People are “Hunted Every Time We Step Foot Outside Our Homes”

Fact check; False.

Basketball star LeBron James claimed in a tweet that black people are “hunted every time we step foot outside our homes.”

Turns out that’s not true.

The tweet was a response to the killing of “jogger” Ahmaud Aubrey who was shot after a confrontation with two white men in Georgia who believed him to be a burglary suspect.

The media has spun the incident as Aubrey being “hunted” down, despite the fact that video of the incident shows him physically charging one of the other men.

“We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!” tweeted James. “Can’t even go for a damn jog man! Like WTF man are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!? No man fr ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!”

Not only is LeBron James obviously wrong with his hyperbolic tweet, the opposite is actually true.

FBI statistics show that black people are significantly more likely to murder white people than vice versa, despite them only making up 13 per cent of the population.

For example, in 2015, 500 killings of white people were attributed to blacks while 229 black lives taken by white killers. Since white people make up roughly 73 per cent of the population, there are disproportionately more black on white homicides per capita.

When you account for the fact that the overwhelming majority of perpetrators are black males, that brings the figure down closer to 6 per cent.

From 1976 to 2005, 94 per cent of black victims were killed by other African Americans, a statistic that continued to hover around the 90 per cent level since then and been the norm for over a century.

However, when a black person is murdered by another African-American, it barely makes the news.

So no, black people are not being “hunted” every time they leave the house.

The media whips up hysteria surrounding individual incidents to create the false perception that black people are being targeted en masse by whites, which is simply not true.

Video: Black Woman Complains About Rioters: “They Motherf**kers Need to Go Home!”

Former NAACP chapter president sounds off.

Published

A video clip shows a black woman and former NAACP chapter president trying to collect medication for her daughter outside a Target store in St. Paul telling rioters “these motherf**kers need to go home!”

The twin cities were hit with violent unrest last night as rioters looted stores in response to the police killing of George Floyd.

More looting is already unfolding in both Minneapolis and St. Paul today.

In the clip, the African-American woman says she can’t collect the medication as another person in the background asks, “what does St. Paul got to do with this?”

“St. Paul ain’t got shit to do with what happened,” says the woman, adding, “And these people don’t give a damn about George Floyd.”

She notes that the police officers involved in Floyd’s killing have been fired and are under investigation.

“Leave this shit alone – “these motherf**kers need to go home!” she shouts.

The woman subsequently identified herself as Diane Binns, former president of the NAACP St. Paul from 2016-2018.

She says she attended the initial protest against the killing of Floyd but after 30 minutes realized “it was going to be a riot, so I left.”

“I watched what they were live streaming last night on video and the destruction they did to their own community – what are people going to do who live in those communities and need those resources – we don’t have many resources as it is, so why are we going to burn down the small business owners who are there for us?” she asks.

Rioting in Minneapolis Was So Bad, The Fires Show Up on Air Quality Maps

The rioting in Minneapolis last night was so bad that the fires from the burning buildings show up on this morning’s air quality control maps.

Looters rampaged through nearby stores having earlier staged violent protests outside the 3rd Precinct police station in response to the death-by-cop of George Floyd.

Target, McDonalds, Dollar Tree, Wendy’s, two liquor stores and AutoZone were all attacked and looted.

Air quality maps from the area of the riots show diminished air quality as a result of the sheer intensity of the fires which engulfed several buildings.

One of the buildings targeted was an affordable housing block under construction that was completely burned to the ground.

“An affordable housing complex under construction near the corner of Lake and Minnehaha caught fire early Thursday, quickly engulfing an entire city block. Smoke from the multi-story building was visible from miles away,” reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

“Dozens stood and filmed the fireball until they realized that adjacent buildings were in danger. People grabbed garden hoses and barrels to try to save their own houses from a similar fate.”

Burning down an affordable housing block to fight systematic racism and police brutality! Incredible.

Knife Wielding Woman in Wheelchair Attacked During Night of Chaos in Minneapolis

Disabled woman tried to block Target entrance to prevent looting.

Published

A white woman in a wheelchair carrying a knife who tried to stop looting was attacked during the riot in Minneapolis last night, becoming one of the more bizarre faces of the chaos.

Video footage shows the woman, described as “elderly” but believed to be in her 30’s, blocking the door of a Target store as looters try to drag her away.

“She got a knife! She got a knife!” the crowd screams before someone blasts her in the face with the contents of a fire extinguisher.

The woman is then pelted with more objects as the crowd cheers.

Photos do indeed show that the woman was waving around a knife. Whether this was in self defense or proof that she was trying to stab others is open to interpretation.

Another clip shows an African-American male trying to grab the woman by the head.

“I was peacefully protesting and trying to block the way so they couldn’t loot the Target – I didn’t stab anybody,” the woman subsequently claimed.

“They attacked me from front and back, they punched me in the mouth, I got punched in the head several times, I got grabbed from behind, people grabbed my wheelchair, they stole my keys, they stole everything they could off of me,” she added.

Numerous stores and businesses were targeted during the violent unrest, including McDonalds, AutoZone, Dollar Tree, Wendy’s and an affordable housing block under construction that was burned to the ground.
