Social media is divided over a passionate monologue given by CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who spoke out against police brutality and got real about what he thinks it will take to start seeing real change.
While speaking on the recent fatal police shootings of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo, Chris was blunt, boldly stating that White Americans won’t care about police brutality until it’s their children getting killed.
“And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don’t like it. I don’t like it. It scares me,” Chris Cuomo said during his near 5-minute plea. “Shootings? Gun laws? Access to weapons? Oh, I know when it will change. Your kids start getting killed, white people’s kids start getting killed?…Those start piling up? ‘What is going on with these police?’…That’ll be you. That will be the majority, because it’s your people.”
As you might have imagined, some people, mainly right wing conservatives, were in an uproar about what Chris said.
“What a race-baiting moron,” said Conservative journalist Miranda Devine on Twitter. “They ARE getting killed. There just aren’t riots every time. And what about cops getting killed? No riots there either.”
Others feel Chris was spot on with his social commentary.
“Chris Cuomo speaks truth. Right wing loses its mind. When will Republicans accept the fact that gun violence is out of control and we need regulation?” one Twitter user said.
“Lol the anglo saxons are mad at Chris Cuomo for stating nothing but facts,” another said.
