Jemele Hill says blacks who notice 5 Memphis cops are black too ‘carry the water’ for ‘white supremacy’

The lengths the left is willing to go to spin the fatal beating of Tyre Nichols into a “white supremacist” crime, when the Memphis police chief and all five of the cops involved are black, is getting painful to watch, especially when the claims are coming from other black voices.

Lost in the disingenuous debate is the brutal death of a young man, just three doors down from his mother’s doorstep.

A prime example is the recent comment from a black columnist for The Atlantic and former ESPN reporter, Jemele Hill.

It began with a lengthy thread from black “grassroots organizer” Bree Newsome Bass, who declared on Twitter, “Diversifying the police force doesn’t end racism because racism is inherent to the organization of the institution & its daily operation.”

“Racism is what policing is,” she stated. “The white owner class is not policed or surveilled because the function of police is to maintain the race/class hierarchy & protect only the property of the wealthy, not the property of the poor which they regularly damage.”

Now, the sane and appropriate response to such divisive nonsense was exemplified by one user who asked, “Do you just throw a bunch of words together and hit the ‘tweet’ button? Because you make no sense…”

But no one is accusing Jemele Hill of being sane or appropriate.

She embraced and amplified the nonsense.

“I need so many people to understand this regarding Tyre Nichols,” she tweeted. “Several of the police officers who murdered Freddie Gray were Black. The entire system of policing is based on white supremacist violence. We see people under the boot of oppression carry its water all the time.”

Another user called Hill out.

“So the black cops in my neighborhood are white supremacists?” the user asked. “This is truly shocking.”

In Hill’s world, that user is “stuck” on the color of a person’s skin when people should be stuck on racism.

In Hill’s world, that makes perfect sense.

“Just as women sometimes carry the water for misogyny and the patriarchy, Black people have definitely done the same for white supremacy,” she replied. “You’re stuck on the faces. I’m looking at the system and why it was created.”

And, one must presume, the system in Hill’s victim-populated world was created to benefit White faces, which she is, without irony, most passionately “stuck” on.

Jemele Hill is widely seen as a racist.

And, according to some Twitter users, not a very smart one.

“This logic is so twisted it needs mustard,” said Townhall columnist Brad Slager. “So the ‘system’ creates black cops who kill black citizens. Those devious whites!”

“Perhaps,” he suggested, “@JemeleHill can point to the particular aspects of this racist police system, which is run by a black female police chief, with an oversampling of POC officers, in a city whose population is 2/3 black, and has been run by Democrats for decades.”

“‘It’s white supremacy but don’t look at their faces,'” quipped another user.

“You’ve run out of legitimate racism to keep the money press rolling,” accused a third. “You’re having to fabricate a new supply by lying.”

And a fourth questioned Hill’s professional path: “Imagine being a professional race baiter as a career choice.”
