The first black woman to represent Georgia in Congress is now the Co-Chair of a newly form group combatively labeled the “Coalition to Combat Police Terrorism.”
The group held a press conference in Decatur, Georgia earlier this month.
While the group’s title alone assumes a militant nature, a strong number of speakers in their press conference took a libertarian stance to issues within their community.
One speaker spoke of educating black men on consent to search laws, however the same speaker closed his comments with the threat:
“All of us are going to enjoy America, or none of us are going to enjoy America.”
Twenty-three minutes into the conference, a reporter asked about the incendiary name of the organization, former Black Panther Dhoruba Bin Wahad, jumped in giving the history of the incendiary names of government programs including the War on Drugs, the War on Crime, and the War on Poverty.
Clad in a red had while indoors, Bin Wahad’s response was clearly informed but seething with racist bias as he stated that police officers are the descendants of “paddy rollers” and the “Klu Klux Klan.”
He challenged the inquisitive reporter by saying, “If you think that that history is not worthy of the term ‘combat’ then you need to be 12 years a slave.”
Cynthia McKinney then jumped in to ease the tension by telling a personal story from her family history.
The group admitted that the group was formed as a reaction to the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
The fury of those deaths has been fanned by professional agitator Al Sharpton, and as a result, activists like Cynthia McKinney are forwarding that design within their local communities which critics say increase racial divide in the nation.
