    Milwaukee’s tough-talking black sheriff, David Clarke, argued this week that white Americans have “made great strides” in healing race relations, and that sooner or later they’re going to grow tired of having their noses “rubbed in the past sins of slavery.”

    “The inconvenient truth here is that too often times, disparately as a matter of fact, the perpetrators are young black males,” Sheriff Clarke told Fox News host Neil Cavuto, according to a video provided by The Daily Surge.


    “That’s the discussion that we should be having in this country, instead of papering it over with things like targeting the police and cop bashing, which the president of the United States, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and their cabal are doing right now so that they don’t really have to deal with the real issue in the country as it relates to crime, and it’s the disproportionate involvement by young black males,” he said.

    The sheriff went on to say that those pushing “false” narratives such as “hands up, don’t shoot” and “black lives matter” aren’t going after the core of the issue because the cutesy slogans are “easier to peddle.”

    “We have to talk about the violence and who the perpetrators are,” Sheriff Clarke said, arguing that many young black males have “no care whatsoever for their fellow man.”

    That's what the media does. It creates false narratives and manipulates us.

    It hypes fear, keeps us divided and steers us which ever way the government and it's corporate sponsors want us to go.

    Our resident race baiters don't want to have anything to do with this no nonsense sheriff.

    Not surprised at all. :laugh:

    He absolutely destroys their narrative in a few short sentences.

    That Sheriff looks at the content of the character, not the color of the skin.

    Since the knock-out game is being played downtown Indianapolis in the most luxurious areas, I think that we can express white fears of black cops as well as black people in general.

    I have seen that Sheriff on several TV {Fox of course, no one else would put him because he does;t fit the stereotype!} times. Very impressive!
