Missouri Lt. Gov. Claims the Justice Department Is More Racist Than Ferguson
Because pointing out factual institutionalized racism is the real racism…. or something.
Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder (R) said that the protests in Ferguson that followed the death of Michael Brown were “based on a lie” and that there was more racism in the Department of Justice than there was in the St. Louis area.
“The whole blow up of this protest movement was based on the lie that never happened of hands up don’t shoot,” Kinder told NewsmaxTV’s “Steve Malzberg Show” Monday in comments that were first highlighted by BuzzFeed.
Kinder was referring to a Department of Justice report released last week which concluded that witness accounts that Brown had his hands up when police officer Darren Wilson shot him were “inconsistent with physical and forensic evidence.”
