Atlanta mayor on Ahmaud Arbery killing: White House rhetoric emboldens racists

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Sunday called the shooting death of an African American a ’lynching’ and characterized rhetoric from the White House as emboldening people with racist beliefs.’It’s heartbreaking that it’s 2020 and this was a lynching of an African American man,’ Bottoms said to CNN. She also said the suspects were only arrested because the video of the killing was made public

She cannot point to anything Trump has said that is racist or supportive of racists, so now she pretends as if the public needs "permission" from the POTUS in order to engage in criminal behaviour and garbage human activities. Implies that Obama was giving "permission" to all the criminals during his terms.

Seeing how she's so quick to call racism, I'm thinking she's the racist here.

Funny how it's Dems who always cry racism, but look at all the Dem controlled cities and states! Baltimore, Atlanta, LA, Detroit, NY. Dems are in control yet do almost nothing to stamp out racism, why because they know division is how they keep their power.

Since when do racists need permission or encouragement to be racist? Also I love the lack of self awareness from leftists when they talk about racism.

She knows he wasn’t killed because he was black. All the evidence is already public knowledge. Wants her 15 minutes of fame.

The only ‘racist act’ I see involved in this case is Ahmed’s assumption that the two white guys lawfully open carrying while asking him to stop running were there to ‘murder’ him, thus triggering his insane, irrational, and violent reaction of him charging at and attempting to forcibly disarm one of them... Ahmed got himself killed and his medical and criminal records show him to have a propensity to respond to situations in a violent and irrational manner. This poorly-thought-through overly-aggressive suicidal insanity could not have been foreseen by the two innocent guys simply out trying to help their neighbors avoid criminal predation by Ahmed or someone Ahmed has the misfortune to look like. All they did was ask him to stop while waiting for the police (who’d already been called) to arrive. AHMED is the one who made the situation deadly by trying to take the gun from his hands. Open carry is lawful and white people have been arresting each other for hundreds of years while openly armed and seldom has it immediately devolved to ‘law of the jungle’ wrestling over the gun since even the people ring arrested have tended to behave rationally. Ahmed failed this basic test of ‘how not to get yourself killed’. Oh, and who cares what ‘a mayor’ says?

So she’s ok with people being racist in secret and acting on their racism as long as they don’t say racist things? Weird position but you do you

It's great to see the citizenry of Atlanta not just paying lip-service to the concept of inclusivity in the election of the intellectually disabled to its mayoral office.

The left sees everything through a filter. Sometimes that filter is racism sometimes it's sexism, it's never comprehensive and it always requires an authority to either embrace or condemn. Leftists don't see people as individuals but a product. A product to be graded and disposed of if it is not to specificationspecifications set for by the lens they are seen through.

She must not have seen the footage of him looking for stuff to steal. Also he attacked a guy with a shotgun you will lose 99.8% of the time

considering he basically started his campaign with MEXICO IS SENDING RAPISTS AND DRUG DEALERS HERE, yeah, we know. and what's worse is nearly a quarter of American voters were ok with voting for it and half of Americans stayed home and let it happen. although fewer probably would have abstained if we could vote on weekends.

Bet she won't comment on the new info. he was going into a construction site house and someone called 911 reporting to police. Security cameras picking it up. The man who was one of the two men that tried to citizens arrest he was a cop ,off duty or retired one, but not any cop one who arrest the dead man in the past. Which means he knew who he was not just targeting a black man. The dead man was on parole from a charge of taking a gun into a high school basketball game. He was 10 miles from his house so no he wasn't in HIS neighborhood. Que naked gun meme NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

Last I checked, lynching required the person being lynched to be hanged. Edit: spelling

She is exactly right thinking that. tRump condones white supremacist and any other racist acts by not acknowledging it is wrong. He is not a leader, he is nothing but a buffoon.
