Political analyst Boyce Watkins compared the fallout from the decisions of two grand juries not to indict white police officers in the deaths of black men to the country’s state of mind in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on 9/11, which resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans.
Watkins said if the country continues to turn a blind eye to incidents of this nature, we will have a “race war.”
“The anger and the outrage that I’m seeing everywhere just imagine how Americans felt right after 9/11,” he said Wednesday during an appearance on CNN. “Think about this: Somebody’s killing your children, what parent and what human being is not going to react emotionally when they know they can’t send their child to Skittles and iced tea without a possibility that they’ll come back dead.”
The comment about “Skittles and ice tea” is a reference to Trayvon Martin, whose death was under very different circumstances.
Watkins pushed the narrative being propagated by the media and supported by President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that places the blame for virtually every black-versus-white cop incident on the police.
“I will say this, that the good cops that are out there they want to deal with this problem as much as the rest of us do because we don’t want to live in a society were everyone is afraid of the police, where everyone hates the police and black kids think all police are bad,” he said.
And while he ignores the unintended consequences of failing to comply with officers when they are effecting an arrest, Watkins was only too happy to talk about the consequences of perceived racism — whether it exists or not.
“If you continue to turn a blind eye to these homicides and then you will have what actually can become a race war on your hands,” Watkins added. “We’ve got to be very, very careful.”
Indeed we do, because the proverbial crap is getting real deep.
