Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) spoke out on Sunday to launch an outrageous attack on American police officers, saying that they think “their greatest challenge and their greatest choir is to keep black people in their place.”
Waters said this on Sunday while appearing on Spectrum News 1’s “In Focus SoCal.”
“We again witnessed racial tensions explode in this country after the death of George Floyd,” said anchor Tanya McRae. “Why do you think this country has such difficulty learning from history and making real changes when it comes to violence and injustice done to black people.”
“I believe that it stems from the history of this country,” Waters said. “It stems from slavery when whites were absolutely in charge, and they absolutely controlled the lives of people and their families. They decided to separate families and send the boys in one direction, the girls in another the mothers to the big house. I mean, they’ve always been in charge.”
“I think that this thinking about the need to control, the need to you know, make sure that people stay in their place, so-called, has been what has basically what has happened in America all of these years. And I think it continues in various ways. Sometimes a little bit more sophisticated ways,” she added. “The police, I think really believe and in some ways are led to believe that their greatest challenge and their greatest choir is to keep black people in their place.”
During this same appearance, Waters talked about how she felt seeing a black man become president for the first time back in 2009, when Barack Obama took office.
“It took a long time for me to believe it could actually happen,” Waters said. “And of course, when it did happen, I thought to myself, you know, change is in the air. And I just thought that you know, something significant had happened in this country with the election of a Black man.”
It’s abundantly clear that like many Democrats these days, Waters will make absolutely anything and everything all about race.
