Ohio Rep. Joyce Beatty said: “Let us be clear that this is a white terrorist activity. They are white supremacists, well-equipped armed mobs and many mobs proficient in police and military tactics. They overthrew the failed election of candidate Trump.” The chairman and members of the Congressional Black Caucus said at the group’s hearing.
“Speaker, Ms. St. Louis and I support the impeachment article against Donald J. Trump. If we fail to remove the white supremacist president who incited a white supremacist rebellion, then communities like Missouri’s First District will suffer the most.” Bush said in his speech.
After believing in doing something wrong to them, people marched among thousands of people. Throughout the summer, the national call for racial justice was supported by George Floyd, the death of Breonna Taylor, and the painful anti-black sentiment of future generations. Experts say that unlike the BLM protests, the Capitol riots were triggered by lies and deep-rooted racist stereotypes.
Believing that the presidential election was stolen, the mob touted themselves as a “patriot”
; and repeatedly chanted “America, America”, and at the same time destroyed and destroyed the core buildings of American democracy. Trump has accepted dog-whistle tactics, such as calling Mexicans “rapists” and calling “black life is essential” as a “symbol of hatred.”
Ian Haney López, author of “Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Race Appeals Reshapes Racism and Undermines the Middle Class” said: “Once you feel this fact, you cannot convince them accept the truth.”
The following are the reasons why the black life issues movement has been promoted for nearly a decade and the reasons why Trump supporters broke into the Capitol:
Wrong and debunked claims attracted thousands to the Capitol
A week after hearing false claims that the presidential election was tricked, Trump’s supporters flocked to Washington to confront the electoral votes that would affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory ceremonial count struggle.
A few hours before the riots, Trump addressed a group of supporters on an oval near the White House, inciting false accusations of voter fraud and telling them to “fight like hell.”
“I’m definitely 100% behind what happened today,” Todd Possett, who participated in the mob campaign last week, told CNN’s Donny Sullivan. “This election theft is terrible. I have to come here to perform my patriotic duties.”
Marc Morial, president and chief executive of the National Urban League, said on Wednesday that the mob was motivated by racial discrimination and “based on conspiracy theories that invalidate blacks.”
Morrill testified at the Congressional Black Caucus hearing: “The mob is sympathetic and respected, and sympathizes with certain law enforcement officers and some military institutions that harbor white supremacists.”
After the election, Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Camden, New Jersey were all cities that falsely accused voters of fraud and corruption during the Trump campaign. These cities are either mostly black or have a large population.
At a press conference in November, Trump’s personal prosecutor, Rudy Giuliani, said: “You know if you live in Philadelphia. Unless you are dumbfounded-this is the Italian word for stupid Express-unless you are stupid, you know that many people come from Camden to vote.” “They do this every year. It happens all the time in Philadelphia…. It is allowed to happen because it is a democratic, corrupt The city has existed for many years. For many years. The place where they can get rid of it.”
According to Haney López, a professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley, the rioters believe that this narrative is deeply rooted in racist stereotypes that have permeated Tron in the past 50 years. Pu’s entire government and used by other politicians.
Haney López said: “The main thing they are trying to trigger is the feeling that people of color are occupying the country.”
He added: “They believe it because in their hearts this multi-ethnic alliance is in power.” “It is wrong for them that blacks allied with Hispanics, Asian Americans and whites should be in power.”
For a long time, political leaders have used dog whistling phrases to take advantage of the racial fear of white Americans. Some of these terms are “illegal aliens”, “mobs” and “welfare queens.” President Ronald Reagan used these terms when he was campaigning for the Republican presidential candidate in 1976.
Since the riot, Trump has insisted in his first public speech to reporters that the riot is “completely appropriate.”
He claimed that the “real problem” was what other politicians said about the summer protests in Seattle and Portland, Oregon.
The riot in the Capitol was also a wonderful force of the fringe movement, displaying several symbols of white supremacists and extremists.
Calls for global solidarity in black life
In 2013, the verdict of accidental homicide in the murder case killed the 17-year-old black teenager Trayvon Martin, who was walking near his father’s Florida, leading to the birth of Black Lives Matter-this is one of the healthiest lives for blacks Well-known organizations that struggle for well-being.
The initial hashtag became a website, an organization, and later developed into a dozen local chapters in the United States and Canada. They were driven by a series of incidents in which black Americans died at the hands of police and civilian police.
According to the BLM website, its mission is to “eliminate white supremacy and establish local powers to intervene in violence against black communities by the state and security guards.”
But the goal of BLM is not just to protest the brutality of the police. At the local level, the organization advocates mutual assistance, allocates funds to the police and provides housing and health services for black and brown workers.
Kailee Scales, Managing Director of the Global Network of Black Lives Matter, said: “We live in a country that keeps us away from the resources we need.” “People in sports have been fighting to reverse this trend to improve people’s understanding that this is not what we should Recognition of the way of life.”
Studies have shown that in many American cities, apartheid still exists, while most black residential areas have fallen behind. Black communities have different access to health care, quality education, good jobs, and other resources than whites.
“You know, for many people in our country, we know how to be treated differently. And we also know that all the things we experience every day do not exist, or if they exist, we will be told What? It is our fault (and) somehow caused inequality,” said Alicia Garza, who co-founded the “Black Lives Matter Global Network” with Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi.
After Floyd was killed last summer, a large number of people took to the streets to support the problems of black life. The protests were larger and lasted longer. The BLM logo that popped up in many people’s yards was only the first sign of racial discrimination nationwide.
People marched to protest police violence and systematic racism.
Kansas City protester Randy Fikki told CNN affiliate WDAF-TV: “If you don’t speak, you don’t speak, you are like a police officer standing by and watching. “After Freud’s death.
Critics responded to the term “black life problem” by creating their own slogans, such as “all life problems”. Some people believe that this minimizes the current struggle of blacks against systemic racism, while the “blue life problem” refers to life.Policemen
Last week, Trump supporters were criticized on social media after using another phrase called an appeal for racial justice.
They were referring to the hashtag #SayHerName, referring to Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old white woman who was shot and killed when the mob tried to force her into the floor of the house.
They do not seem to have participated in the #SayHerName campaign, which aims to raise awareness of black women and girls who are victims of police brutality-these black women and girls are often ignored and forgotten.
The campaign was launched in 2014 by the African American Policy Forum and the Center for Intersection and Social Policy Research to highlight the cases of dozens of black women, including Atatiana Jefferson and Michelle Cusseaux, all of whom were police officers in their homes. kill.
