‘Comedian’ Trevor Noah has recently targeted the National Rifle Association for what he thinks is hypocrisy from the gun organization.
Monday night he asked,”how does a black person not get shot in America?”
Referring to the case where officer Jeronimo Yanez shot and killed Philando Castile. The officer has recently been acquitted for the shooting.
He continued, “The bar is always moving, the goal posts are always shifting. There’s always a different thing that explains why a person got shot. Oh, the person was wearing a hoodie. Oh, the person was running away from the police. Oh, no, the person was going toward the police. Oh, no, the person was running around at night.”
“Philando Castile wasn’t just a man shot at a traffic stop,” Noah said. “He was a legal gun owner whose family was in the car and who had committed no crime. At all.”
“There’s a group you would expect would be losing their goddamned minds about this: the NRA,” Noah said. “For some strange reason, on this particular case, they’ve been completely silent. And yet, according to their rhetoric, this is everything that they stand against, right? An officer of the state depriving a citizen of his life because he was legally carrying a firearm.”
He then showed a clip of Wayne LaPierre, CEO and executive vice president of the NRA, insisting in 2014 that “there is no greater freedom than the right to survive and protect our families with all the rifles, shotguns and handguns we want.”
“’Unless you’re black,’ is what it should say,” Noah said. “It’s interesting how the people who define themselves by one fundamental American right ― the right to bear arms ― show that once race is involved, the only right that they believe in is their right to remain silent.”
A jury decided the outcome of the case; which included two black people.
If Castile was completely in the right and the officer guilty of murder, why did 12 people find him not guilty?
Did the justice system fail black people again or is this all political hype from the MSM and liberals?
