Meet Ida B. Wells, a courageous black newspaper reporter who used to personally confront actual racists back when racists existed in America. She was more macho than Bubba Wallace, Jussie Smollett and Don Lemon combined. (Of course, that’s setting the bar pretty low.)
America is basically a nice country where everyone is supposed to be treated equally and where, in 2020, we basically adhere to that principle. It’s not a racist country with the Klan running around lynching people.
That exact lack of racists in America is why it’s pretty much a guarantee that when a Jussie Smollett or Bubba Wallace incident happens in this country, it turns out to be a hoax. Even the George Floyd murder was not “racism” — even if it is a case of police brutality on an individual level.
And if you think George Floyd’s death had anything to do with racism, ask yourself this: Why haven’t the prosecutors allowed to the public to see the police bodycam footage — more than a month after they rushed to charge the officers with “murder?”
That’s a question that Ida B. Wells would have had the courage and integrity to ask. But we don’t have anyone with that kind of courage in our media today. They’re all still insisting that Bubba Wallace’s garage door pull rope was a “noose.”
