(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Despite smashing up major American cities, burning down churches, and destroying black-owned businesses, celebrities are still pandering to the Black Lives Matter movement. In a two-minute PSA-style video published on Twitter, some seriously big Hollywood names deliver somber apologies for being…I don’t know, racist, or something?
Aaron Paul, Julianne Moore, Justin Theroux, Stanley Tucci, Bryce Dallas Howard, Debra Messing, and many more appear in the video apologizing for “every unchecked moment” and “every not so funny joke.”
Jokes are banned now, guys.
“I take responsibility,” they all say, one after the other.
“I take responsibility for every unchecked moment, for every time it was easier to ignore than to call it out for what it was. Every not so funny joke. Every unfair stereotype. Every blatant injustice, no matter how big or small.”
The video goes on with the same platitudes, suggesting that as white celebrities, they have somehow been complicit in murder.
“We are no longer bystanders. We will not be idle. Enough is enough. I will no longer allow an unchecked moment. I will no longer allow racist, hurtful words, jokes, stereotypes, no matter how big or small to be uttered in my presence.”
They’re gonna be fun at parties.
It’s all pretty cringeworthy, right up to the point where it becomes disturbing.
“Sleeping in your own home should not be a death sentence. Playing video games with your nephew should not be a death sentence.”
The video makes it clear that they believe the narrative that black people are being hunted in the streets by white police officers. No data, from not a single official body, suggests that this is true. When Tucker Carlson, Fox News host, researched the FBI statistics, he showed that just nine unarmed black men were killed by police officers last year, and that each case was surrounded with complex issues that resulted in the tragic deaths. Just two examples appeared to be the result of overly aggressive policing and, in those instances, the police officers were charged and sent to prison.

In case you were wondering, the campaign was organized by the founder and CEO of “Confluential Content,” Tommy Oliver. It was jointly launched with the NAACP.
“In order for us as a nation to get to a better place, we’re going to have to adjust how we see each other and engage in open and honest conversation that might be painful at times,” a statement from NAACP statement Derrick Johnson said.
If we’re engaging in honest conversations, can we talk about the crime statistics that prove black people are not being hunted by white police officers?
