SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE TO NAACP: ‘Number One Cause’ of Police Shootings is Black Single Mother Homes

Only a matter of time before MSM starts calling him a racist.

A body camera recording released last week showed an Muskogee police officer in Oklahoma fatally shoot a fleeing suspect, Terrance Walker, who appeared to drop a gun as he ran.

Tulsa NAACP chapter President Pleas Thompson told KTUL that the shooting was part of a “shoot first and ask questions later” mentality.

“I think emphasis should be placed on trying to take those people alive,” Thompson said.

On Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, Sheriff Clarke argued that the NAACP should be focusing on black men instead of the police.

“This once proud organization that was a force for good has relegated itself into irrelevancy, and I challenge anybody to name the last significant accomplishment that the NAACP has achieved in the United States for people of color,” Clarke opined. “This organization has become nothing more than a political propaganda entity for the left.”

The sheriff recommended that the NAACP start a discussion in the black community about “the behavior of our young black men.”

“The discussion we need to be having and the NAACP can lead it — stay off the police — is why is the stuff happening, and what are we going to do about it,” he continued. “The number one cause of this is father-absent homes. So what are we going to do in terms of having more effective parenting, more role modeling, more engaged fathers in the lives of these young black men so that we don’t have this behavior.”
