Blacks can’t commit hate crimes against whites, says Ebony magazine editor

Blacks can’t commit hate crimes against whites, says Ebony magazine editor January 11, 2017

According to the editor of one of America’s most popular and long-running black magazines, a hate crime can’t be committed against white people or cops.

Jamilah Lemieux of Ebony told CNN’s Newsroom that labeling something a hate crime for a “majority group… gets into very tricky territory.” She said that after the five Dallas police officers who were hunted and executed by a black shooter during a Black Lives Matter protest.

“I have to say, I would not describe hate crime as the most comfortable word choice, considering these circumstances,” Lemieux said. “There’s so much that we do not know about what took place, what motivated this person. We only have the one account of law enforcement. We haven’t had the opportunity to really look into his history in a meaningful way.”

What else but hatred for cops would motivate the shooter to load up his guns and seek to assassinate every officer he sees through his scope? This man said he was angry that police were killing blacks and was motivated by Black Lives Matter to kill cops in retaliation, especially white ones. There, hate crime, end of story.

When it’s a white shooter targeting black people, it is instantly considered a hate crime and Lemieux would agree because blacks have a history of being targets, she said:

“When we use a phrase like ‘hate crime,’ we’re typically referring to crimes against people of color, people of various religious groups, LGBT people, people who have been historically attacked, abused or disenfranchised on the basis of their identity. To now extend that to the majority group and a group of people that have a history with African-Americans that has been abusive, and we can apply that to either police officers or to Caucasians, I think gets into very tricky territory.”

But that’s just blind ignorance as anybody with half a brain would know. Thankfully, CNN’s law enforcement contributor Steve Moore was there to set her straight:

“It absolutely fits the definition of the hate crime. You can’t just say that only certain groups are allowed to be hated, only certain groups can have crimes designated as hate groups, or hate crimes against them. That’s racism.”

He hit the nail on the head: Lemieux is a typical racist.

“You can’t just say if you’re white, nobody can commit a hate crime against you,” Moore continued. “And this guy said I’m doing it because you’re white and I’m doing it because you’re cops. That’s race, and that’s organization. It’s a hate crime as far as legally, and it’s a hate crime the way the FBI would investigate it.”

    I’m sure if the situation was reversed, and 4 white men beat up on a disabled black kid while holding him hostage, there would be all kinds of reflection before rushing out and calling it a hate crime. Please.

    When the Nazi’s slaughtered millions of European Jews, that wasn’t a hate crime?

    • Michael Saintz

      That’s considered crimes against humanity. Although I agree that it’s a hate crime.

  • PD MacGuire

    Just as everyone is capable of goodness, we are all capable of hatred, but do motivations really matter in crimes? Why is one crime a hate crime when other, worse crimes are not? Either all crimes are hate crimes or none are.

    Wait a sec. Is she saying that Black people are incapable of hating someone for being white, or is she saying they get a pass on hating a person just because they are white? Either way, it seems like a rather racist stance.

    Further proof of what we conservatives are up against. These people in the so called civil rights movement don’t want equality. They found that equality means hard work is required to get ahead. So now they want superiority and revenge. BLM calls for the death of whites generally and the death of cops specifically. Oh but they’re not racist. That’s only for white folk. What a line of crap.

    dont waste your time or even one sec trying to figure out where these people are coming from , they are blinded and will not give one inch from their twisted logic

    Every representation of Justice I’ve ever seen has been wearing a blindfold in order to dispense a fair justice. It looks as tho too many people are wanting her to remove the blindfold, with a prejudiced mind set, before any consideration is even given as to evidence.

    Bahahaha – Jamilah Lemieux – a reason why the word ‘libtard’ was coined. The Sheriff is a hero to common sense.
    This would be a hate crime no matter where the people involved were from or what they look like. There’s nothing but hate in that video. It’s horrific. I’m never going to watch it.

    We should do away with “hate crime” designation. Every time a crime is committed against another person, there is some hate or disregard for the victims own rights. Calling it a “hate crime” only muddies the water and was purposed to punish some people more than others.

    God bless you.

    That is so racist. We’re in 2017, and should be beyond this sort of nonsense.

  • Tim Jensen

    I think that there should be no special designation for hate crime. It is a crime or it isn’t, adding emphasis actually hurts the cause of justice. Justice often times is shown as blind, as a sign of impartiality. If we give more weight for a “hate crime” that tends to give certain people special rights. Equal protection under the law also means we apply equal measure of punishment as well.

    They change the definition of racism to fit their needs in order to silence discussion about the disparity between black and white criminality. Apparently statistics are racist when they’re unfavorable, and citing them makes YOU a racist.

    Typical CNN Racist! They seem to have bunch of them!

  • MYDOGDUKE2

    Attorney William Kunsler said years ago a minority is powerless to commit a hate crime against the majority. Did not under stand that then and still don’t, hate is hate if it’s practiced for centuries or used as an excuse in the moment.
