Video: Black Portland Cop Tells You All You Need to Know About Protests

OPINION
Speaking about the white radicals who have targeted police in Portland, a black Portland police officer pointed out last week that there are often more minorities in the police force than among the Black Lives Matter protesters.

“It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest, you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd,” Officer Jakhary Jackson told Portland protest reporter Brandon Farley, “and you have white people screaming at black officers, ‘You have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen.’”

Farley asked, “What was it like in that capacity in the first few weeks when that fence was up around the Justice Center?”

“I got to see folks that really do want change, like the rest of us, that have been impacted by racism, and then I got to see those people get faded out by people that have no idea what racism is all about, never experienced racism, that don’t even know that the tactics that they are using are the same tactics that were used against my people,” Jackson replied. “And they don’t even know that. They don’t even know the history; they don’t know what they’re saying. Coming from someone who graduated from PSU [Portland State University] with a history degree, it’s actually frightening. You know, they say if you don’t know your history, you’ll repeat it, and watching people do that to other people …”

Jackson continued:

“There’s a saying that if you’re a black cop, you’re not black.’ I take this uniform off, I’m suspicious. I look like someone that these people would call the police on. Me putting on this uniform does not erase that history I’ve had.”

Sexton said you will not see that interview on any mainstream news channel because it does not fit into the media’s narrative but said the interview is a “must watch” for everyone across the country to get a better sense about what is occurring on the street level.

“He’s telling you what we all knew was going to happen here,” Sexton said.

Sexton said the country was initially mortified about Floyd’s death in police custody. “But the left was never interested in that. It was always the ignition point for the exploitation of their own political movement,” he said.

The movement has “really turned into a bunch of mostly white, ignorant liberal millennials who were showing up at these protests and saying incredibly, truly racist things to a black cop. Real racism. You know, Nazi Germany kind of racist stuff to a black cop. And they think they’re fighting racism,” said Sexton.

Officer Jakhary Jackson, who has been on the force for about 10 years and is now part of its rapid response team, told a press conference last week about how life as a police officer in the city has changed. For weeks, Portland has been ground zero for violent protests and the city’s Democrat mayor has been criticized as unable to handle the crisis.
