Project 21’s Horace Cooper: Black Americans Want More Police, Not Less Police

‘Black Americans have been trying to express a contrary view to that of The Squad, to that of East Coast or West Coast media and other Progressive elites’


COOPER: “There are two lays taking place. One is the — there are lies taking place. One is if you are a black man in America law enforcement singled you out and they are going on a killing spree. The evidence shows nothing of the sort is taking place. As the count continues, we have had almost 50 law enforcement officers dead this year from just armed people that they encountered who shot them. There are more than that who died in other parts of their activities as officers. But the second lie is that to be black means that you believe these things are true. Black Americans have been trying to express a contrary view to that of the squad, to that of east coast or west coast media and other Progressive elites. They tell us in every survey that they were asked this summer that if we are choosing between more police or less police, we want more police. If we have to choose between less funds or more funding for the police, we want more funding for the police. Black Americans are actually joining in the effort to lawfully obtain firearms. Why is that? Because they recognize that’s as the media narrative have gone forward, that it’s actually the bad police and systemic racism that is your threat. People aren’t noticing that grandma got shot or mugged, or my sister got raped, or some other major, serious felony attack on people who happen to be minority. Black Americans recognize this threat, and they are taking steps to minimize it. To preswrenlt it. To protect — to protect themselves. The lie that blacks agree with this is just that. A lie.”
