Video: Reporter, Academics Claim The Word ‘Looting’ Is Racist

“Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something.”

In the midst of a spate of organised looting in California and beyond, the media and academia is telling people that they shouldn’t be using the word ‘looting’ because it is associated with “people of colour”.

According to  Julian Glover, ABC7 News Bay Area TV’s ‘Race and Social Justice reporter’ (yes really), the incidents should be described as “robbery” or “theft” because the word ‘looting’ is racist.

Glover cites Lorenzo Boyd, PhD, Professor of Criminal Justice & Community Policing at the University of New Haven, who claims that “Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something. We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing.”

Boyd also suggested the use of the word “looting” is part of an effort to politicize the crime wave by connecting it to Kyle Rittenhouse.

“These types of massive organized smash-and-grabs were happening before the Rittenhouse situation happened,” Boyd said, adding “It’s a false equivalency. It’s people trying to politicize crime.”

Watch:

Furthermore, as reported by the Daily Mail, Martin Reynolds, co-executive director of the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education also claimed that the term ‘looting’ should not be used for the “depiction of the flash mobs running roughshod through the aisles of Louis Vuitton and other retailers.”

“This seems like it’s an organized smash and grab robbery,’ Reynolds said. “This doesn’t seem like looting. We’re thinking of scenarios where first responders are completely overwhelmed. And folks often may be on their own.”

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word “looting” as “to rob especially on a large scale and usually by violence or corruption,” so is the dictionary racist too?

Violence is also certainly a feature of the crimes, with latest reports confirming that a security guard protecting a San Francisco Bay Area news crew has died after being shot in the abdomen.

The organised looting is not confined to California, with incidents also reported in Minnesota.

    Black Americans Murdered Jumps 32 Per Cent Thanks to Black Lives Matter

    Experts blame “defund the police” activism for scaring cops away from high crime areas.

    The number of black Americans murdered has jumped by 32 per cent, with experts blaming the rise on cops not patrolling high crime areas thanks to Black Lives Matter-endorsed “defund the police” activism.

    “The number of black Americans murdered in 2020 jumped by 32 percent – with an expert blaming BLM protests for the huge spike by scaring-off cops,” reports the Daily Mail.

    “Killings across (every) racial demographic have swelled by 30 percent between 2019 and 2020, the largest increase since 1905, but blacks have borne the larger impact of that deadly trend, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime report.”

    The phenomenon has become a common trend and first came to prominence in the aftermath of the 2014 Ferguson riots, which is why it is known as ‘the Ferguson effect’.

    Hannah Meyer, from think-tank the Manhattan Institute, says “defund the police” movements supported by BLM have worsened the murder rate.

    “Certainly, the protests and riots mid-2020 followed a pattern of spiking violence that we’ve seen following past viral police incidents, such as the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray,” Meyer told Fox News. “This pattern has been termed the ‘Ferguson Effect’: police pull back while violent crime spikes precipitously.”

    According to FBI statistics, African-Americans accounted for 55.9% of all homicide offenders in 2019, despite representing only 13 per cent of the population. The overwhelming majority of murdered black people are killed by other blacks.

    “The blood is on the hands not only of Black Lives Matter, but of the liberal establishment for promoting its sociopathic agenda,” writes Dave Blount.

    “Having largely caused this crisis, liberals want to address it by disarming law-abiding citizens, leaving them defenseless in the face of emboldened criminals who will of course remain armed.”

    While Black Lives Matter may have served the opposite purpose to its stated mission of protecting black lives, its founders haven’t done badly for themselves.

    As we previously highlighted, BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors chose to live in one of the whitest areas of California after purchasing a $1.4 million dollar home in an area that has a black population of just 1.6 per cent.

    Allies and critics have questioned where the money has gone, queries that intensified after it was revealed that BLM leaders secretly bought a $6 million dollar mansion in a way meant to blur the lines “between the charity and private companies owned by some of its leaders.”

    All of this once again underscores how BLM is just one huge grift, while the impact of its activism only serves to put more black people in danger while deepening division in society.

    Despite the suspect’s innumerable hateful and violent anti-white social media posts, the media quickly moved to dismiss a racial or political motive behind the Brooklyn subway attack.

    Gee, I wonder why?

    Black Lives Matter Media Darling Who Allegedly Shot Politician Campaigned Against Gun Violence

    Was named as a “rising face” by Barack Obama’s foundation.

    Black Lives Matter activist Quintez Brown, who previously enjoyed a prominent platform thanks to legacy media outlets, allegedly attempted to shoot dead a politician after campaigning against gun violence.

    Yes, really.

    Brown was arrested in Louisville yesterday with a 9mm pistol and several magazines following the attempted murder of Democrat mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg at his campaign headquarters.

    The suspect’s bail was set at $100,000 dollars and was almost immediately paid by BLM front group Louisville Community Bail Fund to secure the alleged gunman’s release.

    The 21-year-old student activist was named as a “rising face” by Barack Obama’s foundation in 2019 and previously featured as a venerated BLM speaker on numerous mainstream news outlets, including the BBC.

    As a result of him making several appearances on the network, Guido Fawkes described Brown as the BBC’s “go-to US Black Lives Matter activist.”

    Brown was also an ardent gun control campaigner and repeatedly spoke out against gun violence.

    Oh, the irony.

    null

    “Gun violence reveals the interconnected nature of our reality. What affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Especially in our segregated conditions,” Brown tweeted.

    The activist was standing as an independent candidate for election to the Louisville council in District 5 of the city.

    Brown’s attorney Rob Eggert attempted to pin the blame for the alleged shooting on the suspect’s “mental health issues.” Police say there is “no known motive.”

    Greenberg described what happened during the harrowing attack on Monday.

    “We asked if we could help him. And he pulled out a gun, aimed it directly at me and opened fire,” he told CNN. “I was fortunate that one of my brave teammates slammed the door shut. They were able to throw some desks on top of the door and the suspect fled.”

    “Despite one bullet coming so close that it grazed my sweater and my shirt, no one was physically harmed,” he added.

    The entire story once against illustrates how Black Lives Matter is a violent extremist group which attracts people like Brown on a routine basis.
