Why is there hardly any media coverage or public outrage about David Patrick Underwood? He had a fiancé, family and friends. Why doesn’t his life matter to Black Lives Matter? Is he no longer considered black because he was a Federal security guard?
The quotes below are from his friends:
“He didn’t care if you were white, he didn’t care if you were black, he didn’t care if you were rich or poor if you were his friend he treated you the same. That’s what I loved about him the most.”
“His smile, he was charismatic he just— he was that dude, when he walked in the room, you know, his spirit just lit the room up.”
Take a knee for him
David Patrick Underwood
Don’t ignore his death.
All black lives matter
Rioters aren’t protesters
Stop protecting them.
We need: Change not Anarchy
The whole truth, not half.
“I’m outraged, but not by the looting. I’m outraged that people care more about someone looting, then about a man being murdered on film…Some people have expressed their rage in a variety of ways, but every—we need to stop focusing on the tactics and tools, and we need to start focusing on the end goal…”Quote from Chivona Newsome, Black Lives Matter co-founder.
The rioters aren’t just looting, they’re killing, attacking, burning down businesses that people rely on for work and basic needs. Rioters aren’t protestors, there’s a huge difference. The difference between the two is: opportunism, greed and violent hatred. Rioters are destroying people’s dreams; it’s not just about property or material damage. What she calls tactics and tools is also known as violence, crime and murder.
I don’t understand how Chivona Newsome can champion only certain black lives, that she deems worthy to defend. George Floyd’s life mattered and so did David Patrick Underwood’s. He didn’t deserve to be murdered either, but he gets no mention and none of her sympathy. Black Lives Matter started in Oakland and Underwood was killed defending Oakland. It’s so tragically ironic.
Just one example of the rioters at a family owned pharmacy. Justice isn’t about an entitlement to riot, that’s how terrorists think and rationalize. Peaceful protestors are admirable, I’m not referring to them.
