    Oregon police chief goes on racist tirade calling African Americans monkeys, supports Confederacy

    Racist Oregon Police Chief Marvin Hoover

    Yeah,
    this really happened ... in 2015 ... in Oregon.

    On June 25, two Clatskanie, Oregon, police officers witnessed something horrific. The fallout from what they witnessed has been just as bad, and the implications reveal that racism runs throughout the city.

    According to the
    city website, "Clatskanie has been described as a Norman Rockwell picturesque small city nestled in green hills and valleys on the coastal range in northwest Oregon." This comparison, it turns out, is actually highly appropriate because many observers believe that the bulk of Rockwell's paintings were racist and displayed a white supremacist vision of America in which black folk were perpetually subservient.

    Officer Alex Stone, who is white, arrested an African-American woman,
    one of less than 10 black residents in the town, on June 25. During the arrest, she told Officer Stone that she was going to sue the department for racism. When the officer arrived back at the station, he decided, as was standard, to debrief Police Chief Marvin Hoover, also a white man, on the incident. Chief Hoover, mind you, is an award-winning veteran leader of this police department. What followed, and was witnessed by multiple officers, is deeply disturbing.

    Understood, I'm the exact same way, however, start with the new post or last post in, at least. Its a Thread I designated to events of Racism, so its really long, easily consuming a day or so.

    OK, I will.. I thought it was a thread dedicated to racism between Hispanics and AA's. I have some thoughts about that.
