Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Derek Chauvin. Many cable networks discussed police reform and how the death of Floyd has affected policing.
Fox News, on the other hand, decided to have a guest on to criticize civil rights leaders. Guest Brandon Tatum argued that Al Sharpton and Ben Crump are training black people to be killed by police so that they can benefit financially.
Host Laura Ingraham asked, “Brandon, the sheer involvement of Sharpton and Crump who have lied repeatedly about police actions and misrepresented them that doesn’t — it doesn’t say to me this is a good faith effort.”
The guest responded, “No, Laura. I mean, these two gentlemen, Crump and Sharpton, are the biggest pimps in American history, pimping out dead Black people on a day-to-day basis in order to make as much money as they can.”
Tatum continued, “They don’t have a vested interest in telling young Black people to not resist arrest and trying to coach and inspire as good leaders to help young Black people have better experience with police. They want them to get out there and get killed so they can make a whole bunch of money off of it.”
