“But the violence that we see — whether it’s the toxic places where [black people] live; the inadequacy of health care for them; whether it’s the lack of affordable housing; the absence of jobs at living wages; all those things – that’s basically going unseen,” Glover said. “We see the actual violence because the police is what it is. It’s the last line line of defense for white supremacy. That’s what the police represents. They don’t protect African Americans.” What shameful lies.
“You can make an argument that the institutional violence has its roots in so many different ways,” he added. “The violence that we see now that is acted out on the physical body of George Floyd has been the kind of violence that is ingrained within the American idea of its culture, in its own subtlety, since the first Africans were brought here. So it’s 400 years of violence.”
Sadly, celebrity status gives racist ideologues like Glover a megaphone to spew their anti-cop hate.
