If you were conscious at all in the year 2015, you’re probably familiar with the scathing fire police departments across the nation have come under regarding race relations. While some of it has been justified, the majority of it is in fact balderdash. Bet you haven’t heard that word in a while. So the police have been responding in kind (read Colorado Police Post Poignant Response to Race Baiters). In light of Beyoncé’s recent Super Bowl halftime Black Panthers parade (read Dear Beyonce: It’s Not Because You’re Black. It’s Because You’re a Whore…), the Miami police department has decided to boycott her upcoming performance.
The Miami Fraternal Order of Police has voted to have all law enforcement officers boycott Beyoncé’s concert which is being held at the Miami Marlins Stadium on Wednesday, April 26, 2016. The fact that Beyoncé used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her antipolice message shows how she does not support law enforcement.
Guess Beyoncé will have to find someone else to escort her to and from the concert safely. These cops aren’t going to put up with her crap.
While Beyoncé physically saluted the 50th anniversary of the Black Panthers movement at the Super Bowl, I salute NYPD Officer Richard Rainey, who succumbed to his injuries on February 16, 2016 from being shot by two Black Panthers who he had pulled over in a traffic stop. I also salute the dozens of law enforcement officers that have been assassinated by members of the Black Panthers. We ask all law enforcement labor organizations to join our boycott across the country and to boycott all of her concerts.
Sure, plenty of officers put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of even terrible people on a daily basis. But that doesn’t mean they have to like you. It doesn’t mean they have to put up with your gyrating ass as it twerks while mocking law enforcement. When you celebrate cop-killing scumbags while simultaneously implying that the police are racist murderers on national television, well… It doesn’t exactly earn you a standing ovation from the boys in blue.
But it will garner a standing ovation from those of us who do appreciate the men and women of law enforcement. Bravo gents. Bravo.
