Anti-Racism Center at U. Minnesota Blames White Supremacy for Killing of Tyre Nichols

Anti-Racism Center at U. Minnesota Blames White Supremacy for Killing of Tyre Nichols

“We reject the dehumanization of structural racism, and we refuse to grow numb to racialized violence.”

This is the talking point the left has settled on. It’s absurd.

The College Fix reports:

U. Minnesota anti-racism center says white supremacy to blame for Tyre Nichols killing

The University of Minnesota’s Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity, or CARHE, put out a statement late last week claiming the culprit in Tyre Nichols’ death was … white supremacy.

Nichols, a black man, was beaten by several black police officers in Memphis, Tennessee on January 7. He died three days later.

“The [CARHE] team […] mourns for Tyre and feels fresh grief for victims of anti-Black police violence in our own home,” the statement reads. “The violent death of Tyre and each of the men pictured [below] are not isolated events. They are patterns that repeat over and over and over because of pervasive structural racism.”

“Due to structural racism, law enforcement inflicts disproportionate brutality against Black people in Minnesota and across the United States,” the statement continues. “The killings, terror, and oppression are a direct result of anti-Black racist attitudes, policies, procedures, and leadership that pervade our institutions.”

The statement also blamed white supremacy and structural racism for recent shootings that targeted Asians — despite the suspects, as with the Nichols case, being the same race as the victims.

We reject the dehumanization of structural racism, and we refuse to grow numb to racialized violence. At CARHE we are committed to dismantling structural racism so all people can live healthy, dignified lives safe from violence. We do the work of antiracism because we are fueled by love. We are fueled by love for Black communities, Asian communities, and all racialized communities impacted by racist violence.

The message also notes that a “core mission” of CARHE is “narrative change” — it calls upon academics and journalists to use “harm-acknowledging terms for police violence and use of less-lethal weapons.”

I expect nothing else from those who find white supremacy because that is their only purpose.

So a Black man is killed in a Black majority city by Black cops in a Black majority police department but White Supremacy is to blame.

The Left’s version is some people did something ‘cos White Supremacy.

Pure racism!

    No, no, it makes perfect sense.
    Those black men wouldn’t have done this, except that some white boss told them to.
    The “Antiracism Center” is just reminding us that black people have no agency. They all need white people to tell them what to do.

      Do they even have a white boss?

        Nope. Chief of police is a black woman: Cerelyn “CJ” Davis. G to to

        and scroll down about halfway. You’ll see her there. But, of course, she, too, must be a white supremacist.

        Let’s unpack that thought: a “white supremacist” is someone who believes that whites are superior to other races, right? So it’s certainly possible for anyone to be a white supremacist. If back people, brown people, green people;e, paisley people believe that whites are superior to them, then they’d be, by definition, white supremacists.

        I don’t think it’s necessary for me to interpret that any farther. If they believe it, they believe it.

May this stupidity lead to the end of that “Center”. I heard the actual story is that Nichols was bopping the wife of one of the cops.

Is it time to show the entirety of the USA what White supremacy is capable of doing?

Never let the facts get in the way of a favorite narrative . . .
