Racists Are Losing Their Minds Because Officers Will Be Charged For Killing Freddie Gray

freddie gray obama memeOver the past few days, there have been many people who were quick to jump on any story that came out that looked like it would prove that Baltimore police officers had nothing to do with the death of Freddie Gray. It wasn’t really until after peaceful protests were overshadowed by violence and incidents involving looting that the media finally began to pay attention to the story.


Along with the problem of the media having a field day with ratings covering every rock thrown or every CVS that got trashed, there were also the folks who were unwavering in their support for the police officers who have now been charged with Freddie Gray’s murder.

Then there were the racist trolls, slithering out from under their rocks over at 8chan to use the hashtag #BaltimoreLootCrew on social media to make it look as if black residents of Baltimore were having a field day looting, as Gawker reports.

Internet racists have long enjoyed using out-of-context and wholly unrelated photos to demonize black people during emergency conditions—the pastime dates back to at least to Hurricane Katrina. But as Motherboard points out, Twitter has made it easier than ever to quickly and efficiently spread toxic bigotry to the credulous and uninformed.

If you look at the #BaltimoreLootCrew hashtag, you’ll see what looks like Baltimore residents—all black—bragging about things they’ve stolen during this week’s civil unrest. But none of these photos are real. Instead, it’s the work of 8chan-affiliated white supremacists, bubbling over the sort of message board fecal matter that would’ve been confined to /b/ in the era before social media. Those were the days! Now, malicious falsehoods have been democratized. (Source)

The slightly lesser forms of filth also known as the ignorant and hateful people who leave comments on my local news station’s Facebook page were quick to write off the peaceful protests because of these fake photos and the asinine actions of people who did things like burn buildings or police cars. They were also happy to say things like Freddie Gray deserved to die, simply for running from the police or that we shouldn’t care about his death, because all of those “thugs” up in Baltimore obviously didn’t care about him either – or somehow that the fact he had a criminal record made his death justifiable. The fact that Baltimore has a serious problem with drugs and poverty? Oh well, the residents must deserve it because the only reason they aren’t able to live in the suburbs and make a lot of money is because they’re obviously lazy. Sadly, that’s how the logic of a lot of keyboard warriors work, even though many of them here in Louisiana live in similar desperate poverty.


Here’s a few of the printable comments I lifted from the comments section at KATC after it was announced that the officers who arrested Freddie Gray would be charged. I’ve left them intact, including the horrible grammar and unabashed racism.

If the rest of people would rise up off their pussy little high horses, and declare civil war, we’d win!

Thats total bull. I hope a jury can see how bogus these charges are. Monkey got what monkey deserved.

No its the fact that THOSE ppl kill each other everyday and no one bats an eye. But let a white person kill one of them and all hell breaks loss. Last time i checked destroying private property is a crime, looting is a crime, but its ok because they are “protesting”. They want change yet ever city this happens in is run by demorats or is mostly black poor areas. If they want change so bad maybe they shouldnt destroy property and loot. MLK never insisted on violence.

So now we’ve taught them that looting & rioting works. Great…

Sure, there were people who saw the charged atmosphere as a chance to cause some mayhem and steal some booze or cigars. However, the difference between the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore and the death of Walter Scott in Charleston, SC is that in Charleston, the city was proactive and got out in front of the story before it could devolve into civil unrest. Charleston showed that they cared and didn’t act as if the police were above the law, something Baltimore failed to do.

If Baltimore or Ferguson had handled their cases like Charleston had, would there have been the unrest that we saw this past week? It’s impossible to know for sure, but it isn’t an unreasonable request to ask for law enforcement to give answers as soon as possible instead of appearing to hide the evidence. The people who dismiss the anger of the residents of Baltimore and blindly rush to judgement only make things worse, not better. They predicted that when the facts came out, the officers would be cleared but now that they’ll be charged, they still want to excuse this horrific police misconduct because Freddie Gray was “just another criminal thug”? It’s one thing to support law enforcement but it’s an entirely different thing to defend them when wrongdoing occurs, and then back it up with racism and blaming a person who is now dead. No wonder the people of Baltimore don’t trust the police, or the media.

    I wish more people would learn statistics before spouting off about Black on Black Crime. Black Americans are roughly 13% percent of the population and their crime rate is 80% black on black. That may seem like a lot until you look at the fact that white Americans are roughly 64% of the us population and they have a crime rate of roughly 75% white on white that means that on average more white people are likely to kill another white person than a black person is likely to kill them or someone of their own racial make up.

      White on white murders……………….84% of white murders.

      Just flag the racist trolls and move on, people.

      It’s the only way they’ll go away.

        If the Iranians nuke Israel, the Palestinian fílth also dies in the fallout… win/win situation… peace at last.

        Arabs are also semites, they are of no use to me either, they don’t have nukes, but the Russians do… and they just gave the Iranians some nice new missiles!

        How is Hillary Clowntown’s “reset button” working for you Americans now? Russia owns most of your Uranium mines!

        Still a little bútt hurt over no gay pride nonsense at the Sochi Olympics? Slap some salve on it Jew…

    Dear black people,
    NEVER turn yourself into police or confess. Talk to a lawyer! That is your right.

    This is what is called “kicking the can down the road”. The fun starts after the trial.

        Russia has real soldiers on their border and no gay pride marches in their army… imagine that.

        The only reason why Europe has no standing armies is because once they arm the white majority, the Zionist crowned heads of the EUSSR will fall.

        When the Iron Curtain came down, the Bolshevik Jews all fled to the other side because they knew what the Russians would do to them after 100 years of communism.

        If you’re going to tattle, just tattle. Announcing it is obnoxious.

        Also, I hope the irony that you, a person whose username is a play on female genitalia, flagged a post for using a slang word for female genitalia.

  • CanisRattusImperator

    The police need to stop patrolling these crime infested neighborhoods
    and leave these rats to drown in their own filth. Keep insulting, disrespecting and vilifying the very people who are there to enforce law and order and see what happens when they turn their backs on you.

    • robingee

      you live there?

    • DrVonEvilPants

      But if the cops leave, then who will serve and protect them to death?

    • Shadow Diver

      Fkyou and the police, wingnut.

    • Matthew Myers

      Police in NY tried that. They didn’t patrol at all for almost two months. Reported crime didn’t budge. The only thing affected was revenue.

      • CanisRattusImperator

        Then it’s a win win situation. No complaints of police misconduct and less money for corrupt Democrat politicians to waste.

        Planet of the Apes, part 3… details at 11… stay tuned…

    • chris968

      When was the last time the police enforced law and order? The United States is becoming a police state where the cops can do anything they want to anybody they want for any reason they want and get away with it because of their badge. They don’t protect anybody, especially not the black community.

  • tumbleweed

    Pretty disgusted with this site. The headline is ridiculous. Racist is such an overused word now, it actually means nothing anymore. Don’t agree with someone? Call them a racist. What a shame how this mess has turned everyone against each other, and these gossip rags tend to add fuel to the fire. Really did like Rachel in the past, but would’ve hoped she was smarter than to have her picture up there on that garbage. Just because you call someone else a racist doesn’t make it so. Only makes you look like an idiot because you have nothing to add to a conversation but name calling.

    • DMJ

      Except the people in this article are clearly racist. They use Derogatory terms. The only idiot here is you for failing to realize this article clearly pointed out racist

        When the Iron Curtain came down, the Bolshevik Jews all fled to the other side because they knew what the Russians would do to them after 100 years of communism.

        Today, the EUSSR is just a manifestation of that.

    • DrVonEvilPants

      The word racist doesn’t mean nothing anymore? Maybe to the people who are afraid of the uncomfortable truth or want to keep perpetuating racism.

      Fking lamebrain, is what you are.

      Now that Uganda has become more civilized than American blacks, they don’t want fággot nonsense in their country… the gay white liberal colonialists are having a fit.

      Even Sódom Hussein Obama’s home country of Kenya rejects the fággot pride silliness, but white liberals want them to “spread the other cheek.”

      Kenyans know English much better now, thanks to WHITE Christian missionaries… and know that “spread the other cheek” is not in the Bible… like the media says it is.

    ” but it isn’t an unreasonable request to ask for law enforcement to give answers as soon as possible instead of appearing to hide the evidence.”

    It also isn’t unreasonable to ask the public to give law enforcement a reasonable amount of time to collect the answers before your burn the frickin’ house down.

  • Clintoris

    They will be acquitted.The reason for the quick filing of charges is very apparent.

  • Jack Sawyer

    Is everyone on the internet ignoring the fact that half of the officers charged in the murder are black? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! This has nothing to do with racism. Police Brutality affects everyone. Did you forget how everyone was treated at the Occupy movements? Not to mention that the CDC records show that police kill twice as many white people as they do blacks. The media is in this to say whatever gets them the most money.
