Last weekend, four police officers were killed were killed by a Lovelle Mixon, a [impressive list of derogatory expletives deleted]. The day before the shooting, Mixon had been tied through DNA to the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
On Wednesday, some of the "good people" of Oakland held a march to honor Mixon.
The event, organized by the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, started at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Uhuru House on 7911 MacArthur Boulevard.
According to the organization’s website, the march was designed to “Uphold the Resistance of the African Community as Represented by Brother Lovelle Mixon.”
If you ever wondered why the Black community in so many major metropolitan cities suffers from a surfeit of black-on-black crime, then look no further. The perpetrators of great evil are heroes to them and the victims are oppressors.
If Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama want to demonstrate their bravery and talk about race relations in America, they'd do well to start in Oakland.
