A former member of the U.S. Marine Corps posted a video on social media to speak about white people, and it’s been getting a ton of attention.
Michael Whaley is a 27-year-old black man, and judging by his video, he’s absolutely tired of the way the #BlackLivesMatter people have been acting recently, so he decided to send them a message. Touching on a variety of hot-button issues, Whaley called out the “racist” movement and those within it, while explaining that it’s absurd to hate white people over things that happened centuries ago and pointing out that they have fought and died for blacks all throughout history.
“This Black Lives Matter movement only promotes racism,” Whaley starts in the video, after explaining that Facebook removed the original. “And now they’re encouraging black people to go and kill white people, because they want white people to feel what we felt 400 years ago. Newsflash: Were you living 400 years ago? Nope.”
“So how are you gonna let something from the past, that you never existed in, that you were never born in, affect your life today?” Whaley asked.
“All lives matter,” continued the Marine. He then blamed the hateful rhetoric from the BLM movement, which encourages “killing white people” for the grisly public execution of Deputy Darren Goforth as he pumped fuel at a Texas gas station.
“That police officer’s life mattered. That 9-year-old girl in Ferguson, Missouri, that got shot in the head while she was doing her homework in a drive-by shooting that none of y’all protested — her life mattered,” Whaley added.
Whaley explained that he’s been the target of vitriol from others in the black community, who “slandered” him for his views on the issue and called him such names as an “Uncle Tom,” a “house n**ger,” and more, but it doesn’t appear to faze him at all.
“I had drill instructors in boot camp that had better insults than y’all,” he added. “The reason I don’t have a lot of black supporters — I’m going to tell you the God’s honest truth. The reason why I don’t have a lot of black supporters is because black people can’t accept the truth about themselves. Black people admitting to the truth is like them snitching on themselves, and black people have this no snitching rule.”
“So I’m not gonna have any black supporters,” Whaley said. “Because they can’t openly admit the truth. They’re going to deny it until they die.”
Whaley then explained that it’s ridiculous to blame white people for things that happened hundreds of years ago and that nobody seems to realize that white people fought for Civil Rights. Noting two people who died supporting Martin Luther King Jr., Whaley told people to “do some research” before they spout off with hatred against people who had nothing to do with slavery or anything of the sort.
“This racism has to stop, and y’all wanna blame white people for the stuff that’s going on today?” said Whaley. “No. The reason why a lot of black people are locked up is because black people do dumb crimes.”
Whaley finished his message by calling for unity among the races and likening our society to the military, where “we don’t see color.” He went on, “The only thing we see in the military is family, and that’s what Americans need to be like.”
It’s refreshing to see Whaley come out so strongly against the hatred and racism espoused by the BLM movement, and hopefully, others follow suit after seeing him. And he’s right on – the hatred and division being pushed in our country isn’t helping anyone. In fact, it’s only making things worse and endangering the lives of people who haven’t done anything wrong.
Semper Fi, Marine. These were truly brilliant words, and I pray that they’re able to help people come to their senses.
