The black Marine Corps veteran Michael Whaley, who posted a video severely criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement over the weekend, reiterated on Wednesday that he believes the movement is racist and protesters only acknowledge “when a white officer kills a black person.”
In the viral video Whaley posted, he explained why he doesn’t have many black supporters: “The reason why I don’t have a lot of black supporters is because black people can’t accept the truth about themselves. Black people admitting to the truth is like them snitching on themselves, and black people have this no snitching rule.”
Whaley told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, “If a black person goes to kill another black person, they’re going to deny it until the day they die.”
“They’re not going to admit the truth. And some people don’t like to admit the truth because they don’t like that. It hurts me, as a black man, to have to tell the truth about my own people, but I did it because I care about my people,” he stated.
“There’s too much killing that’s going on. And the Black Lives Matter movement only protests when a white officer kills a black person,” the former Marine added, explaining how the BLM activists actually create more racism and division between people.
Whaley referred to 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden, who was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri, by a 21-year-old black man last month while she was sitting on her mom’s bed doing her homework.
Whaley also referenced “all the crime” that goes on every day in Chicago.
“This violence that’s going on has to be stopped. This racism that’s going on has to be stopped, because black people and white people, we’re not enemies,” Whaley said.
The vet concluded: “I’m worried about my kids and your kids and the future. That’s what matters. Their lives matter. All lives matter.”
