- ‘You Have The Biggest Nose I’ve Ever Seen’: Black Portland Cop Details Racist Abuse Dished Out by White BLM Protesters
Portland police officer Jakhary Jackson has detailed the stunning abuse he has faced during Black Lives Matter protests and blasted the “hypocritical” demonstrations for having fewer minorities than the police they’re fighting.
In a wide ranging discussion Officer Jackson laid out some of his experiences on the frontline of the civil unrest which has unfolded in the city for nearly two months. The cop reveals that he has been violently attacked with explosive devices, white protesters have hurled racist abuse at him and protesters routinely label white officers racists “without even knowing anything about them.”
Jackson branded the protests as “bizarre” and said they often feature more minorities wearing police uniforms than on the side of the demonstrators.
“It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest and you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd,” Jackson explained. “You have white people screaming at black officers, ‘you have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen!’ You hear these things and you go, ‘are they gonna say something to this person?’ No.”
The interview was released by the Portland Police Department this week after being recorded earlier this month. The entire conversation is 27 minutes long but several of Jackson’s comments have gone viral in shorter Twitter videos.
This US black police officer beautifully describes woke racism.
Black people can’t think or talk for themselves. Woke white people want to patronise us and treat us like children.
