They couldn’t find a more appropriate gesture or pose to “honour” a man who died while a police officer knelt on his neck? Maybe get on both knees or something? they are waring kente scarves from the Asante Empire in modern day Ghana, who were very active slave traders themselves, sometimes sacrificing their slaves in funeral ceremonies.
Be warned: the government contingency plan Rex 84 is still active, including the plan to “roundup and transfer to “assembly centers or relocation camps” of at least 21 million “American Negroes” in case of “a national uprising by black militants.”
“Oliver North’s involvement with FEMA set off the first major clash between the official government and the advisers and led to the formal letter of protest in 1984 from then-Attorney General Smith… FEMA’s clash with Smith occurred over a secret contingency plan that called for suspension of the Constitution, turning control of the United States over to FEMA, appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments and declaration of martial law during a national crisis… The martial law portions of the plan were outlined in a June 30, 1982, memo by Giuffrida’s deputy for national preparedness programs, John Brinkerhoff. A copy of the memo was obtained by The Herald. The scenario outlined in the Brinkerhoff memo resembled somewhat a paper Giuffrida had written in 1970 at the Army War College in Carlisle, Pa., in which he advocated martial law in case of a national uprising by black militants. The paper also advocated the roundup and transfer to “assembly centers or relocation camps” of at least 21 million “American Negroes.”
