In the wake of inner city looting and rioting across America, including destruction of people’s businesses and property, as well as violence against police and everyday Americans, Democratic rep. Maxine Waters has decreed that the use of the term ‘rioting’ is racist.
In an interview with The Cut, Waters seriously contended that the term “rioting” constitutes “negative language used far too often in a description of black people by folks who fundamentally don’t see black people the same way they see whites and others.”
“A lot of negative language gets used against black people, describing what whites often believe is true about us: that language includes ‘lazy,’ ‘criminal,’ and ‘rioting,’” Waters added.
Waters explained that she prefers to label the rioting as “insurrection”.
“I said ‘insurrection’. People acting out of frustration and hopelessness and understanding that they don’t have an establishment — political or otherwise — that really cared about their ability to work or have good health care. Yes, I choose to call it an insurrection.” Waters declares.
OK Maxine. Lets take a look at some recent examples of such “insurrection”:
Some shopping based insurrection:
Smacking old women around with planks of wood insurrection:
Pimp my ride insurrection:
Need a prescription insurrection:
Shooting in the head and running over police officers type insurrection:
Pull up in a 4×4 stop ‘n’ shop insurrection:
Don’t call it a riot, whatever you do…
Bringing hammers to the insurrection:
More fair enough insurrection against police here:
Some arson insurrection:
Some “peaceful protest” insurrection:
Killing puppies insurrection:
