“The fact is that it is very rare for an unarmed African-American to be shot by a white police officer.” Asks is Jesse Jackson a “racist?” The same Jesse Jackson who bragged about spitting in White people’s food.

Barr said there is a “false narrative” regarding attacks on black people by white police officers. He also said the US Justice Department believes anti-fascist movement Antifa is at the heart of violence during protests.
US Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday said there is a “false narrative” in the United States that unarmed Black people are frequently attacked by white police officers.
“I think the narrative that the police are on some epidemic of shooting unarmed black men is simply a false narrative,” Barr told US broadcaster CNN. “The fact is that it is very rare for an unarmed African-American to be shot by a white police officer.”
Barr highlighted comments from American civil rights activist Jesse Jackson as the attorney general said: “Didn’t Jesse Jackson say that when he looks behind them and he sees a group of young Black males walking behind them, he’s more scared than when he sees a group of white dudes. Does that make him a racist?”
