A black resident of flood-ravaged Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is calling out radical racial groups like the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter.
Jerry L. Washington posted a video to his Facebook page that has gone off-the-charts viral. He asked a simple question: “Where’s the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter Organizations at now???”
Good question, given that both groups profess to help the downtrodden black Americans. There are thousands meeting that description in the Baton Rouge area.
“I ain’t seen one Black Panther boat or one Black Lives Matter boat,” he said from his flood-ravaged hometown. “All I see are our own people from our own city.”
“With all the drama that was going on with the Alton Sterling killing,” he said, “they came out with guns and ready to go to war.”’
“All these people flooded out and truly in need of some help, and you can’t find one of them.”
Washington also posted a link to a GoFundMe account that was set up so people can contribute whatever they can to help the tens of thousands of displaced Baton Rouge families. It states:
We’re raising money to help get families back on track. For those who are in an unfortunate position and need help getting somewhere to stay. We vow to help as many people as possible and show you all proof as we go. Please show love and support by donating at least $1 and sharing this gofundmeaccount.
Washington’s post has been shared more than 60,000 times and has nearly 10,000 comments.
