50 Years Forward after MLK’s Birmingham campaign brought about the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the “liberated” black residents of Thugham have published a YouTube video that calls for “police bleeding” and “dropping a cop.”
MLK’s “Dream” has come true in Birmingham:
“Friends of a 21-year-old man fatally shot by a Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy one week ago have recorded a video lashing out at police, and some law enforcement officers countywide are on a heightened alert.
The three-minute video produced by BLACK DISTRICT is a tribute to Devante Kyshon “Red Man” Hinds, who died May 9 near Walmart and Milo’s on Parkway East. Authorities said Hinds tried to run a deputy over with a car and then was shot to death by lawmen.
Authorities said Hinds was involved with a heroin deal when he was shot. He was pronounced dead at a Birmingham hospital.
The video calls for leaving “police bleeding” and “dropping a cop” and has caused a stir among law enforcement, some of whom believe it is a not-so-veiled threat. “They are in an uproar and worried about some type of retaliation,” said one officer who didn’t want his name used. …”
“The cameras of the civil rights movement left in 1963. But time didn’t stop. It kept moving forward, with white flight from Birmingham birthing a majority black city.
A majority black city, where the black youth threaten the police in rap videos.
In 2013 we celebrated “50 Years Forward”; the events of 1963 Birmingham helped shape America’s domestic racial policy from that day to today.
Now, black youth threaten to kill cops in the city.
America needs a reset so bad.”
… and the shots were heard from Red Mountain as “freedom” rang out through the hallways of the UAB trauma center. Ain’t That America.
