From Bay Area Intifada
Written by Jabar
This is truly shocking. A McKinney, Texas police officer has been suspended after video emerged of police violently attacking black youth who were attending a pool party in a Dallas Fort Worth neighborhood.
In the video, a white police officer can be seen chasing and corralling black children while screaming profanities at them. Things escalate quickly as the out of control white police officer attacks a young black female for seemingly no reason. The white officer can be seen grabbing the young girl and tossing her around before pulling the girl’s hair and smashing her face into the ground. The officer then kneels on the child with all his weight in complete disregard for the child’s safety or any sense of professionalism. At one one point in the video, the raging white officer can be seen pulling his gun on the children. Adding an extra level of disgust and inappropriateness is the fact that this officer is on top of a female child who is wearing nothing but a two-piece bathing suit.
Even the most ardent pro-cop racists would be hard pressed to explain away the overt racial components shown in the video in absolute clearness: White police officers specifically profiled and attacked young black children with the help of white bystanders in a shocking display of white racial unity. The black children in the video were treated like a horde of invaders, much like the sentiment reserved for migrants in the border regions of the USA. Another horrific example of what Black people specifically, but people of color generally, deal with on a daily basis. Also, it is another example that should not only encourage, but compel people of color to work and organize together to dismantle white America.
