"It seems like Black Lives Matter only focuses on black - people who were murdered by the police"

Posted: Jun 29th, 2020 - 5:08 pm In Reply to: Father of teen murdered by illegal immigrant says BLM ignored - his case: 'I'm black, where's our h

Jamiel Shaw said. "You know, my son was murdered in 2008, and I reached out to anybody that would listen, especially black people, because I thought for sure I would have a lot of support in the black community.

"But, because of the illegal aliens and the way they get all the support in California, no one would jump on board because they didn't want to have to, you know, justify the illegal-alien part. So, they just let me go by myself."

After appealing to various groups and community leaders for help and repeatedly getting turned down, Shaw's father started to speak out personally against California's immigration policies, which he blamed for his son's death.

"All black people should matter," Shaw said, alleging a double-standard among the movement at the forefront of the national protests over George Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody last month.

He said a death at the hands of police should not be "some kind of death lottery, like, 'yeah, I won. I was murdered by the police, so we get something out of it.' Everybody else just gets screwed and has to sit on the sidelines and pretend like, you know, they’re getting over it."

Also Sunday, a former president of Black Lives Matter Greater New York told Fox News that both parties were to blame for crimes against black people. "Black people do not trust politicians," Hawk Newsome said. "They don't trust Democrats. They don't trust Republicans."

Shaw characterized the Black Lives Matter approach as: "If you’re killed by the police, it’s okay. We can tear down and burn down buildings, but if you’re murdered by an illegal alien, you have to be quiet."
