Sunday on Spectrum News 1’s In Focus SoCal, unhinged race-monger Rep. Maxine Waters declared offensively that police in America believe “their greatest challenge and their greatest chore is to keep black people in their place.”
Asked, in the leftist news media’s typical America-bashing fashion, why the country “has such difficulty learning from history and making real changes when it comes to violence and injustice done to black people,” Waters predictably replied by blaming white racism.
“I believe that it stems from the history of this country,” the clueless Waters pontificated. “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 with 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.”
Waters then went on to make an outrageously ugly accusation against our nation’s law enforcement: “The police, I think really believe and in some ways are led to believe that their greatest challenge and their greatest chore is to keep black people in their place.”
Disgusting. Waters is a shameful testament to the Democrats’ hateful contempt for America and the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to serve and protect.

Waters Says the Word “Rioting” Is an Example of “Negative Language … Used Against Black People”
In the aftermath of the May 25, 2020 death of George Floyd — a black man who had died after being abused by a white police officer in Minneapolis — a number of U.S. cities were overrun by violent riots. In an interview published in The Cut on June 3, Waters spoke about her “longtime fight over the language of insurrection and unrest versus rioting,” saying:
“A lot of negative language gets used against black people, describing what whites often believe is true about us: that language includes ‘lazy,’ ‘criminal,’ and ‘rioting.’ It’s all negative language used far too often in a description of black people by folks who fundamentally don’t see black people the same way they see whites and others. So when they talked about rioting in 1992, what I saw was an explosion of a hopelessness being played out. I’d been working with those children in public housing and understood what was going on with crack cocaine, that these communities had been dropped off of America’s agenda, and the only real interaction they had was with police: the use of a battering ram to break down a door, as [Los Angeles Police Chief] Daryl Gates did, or stopping young black men on the street to have them spread their legs to be searched by police. So when this unfortunate situation happened, where we had a lot of these young people in the street, they were acting out in anger and frustration. It reminded me of much of which I saw this past weekend, with people who had been cooped up because of COVID-19, who have lost jobs, whose family members have been getting infected, and then you have this police officer put his knee on the neck of George Floyd and hold it for eight minutes-plus, while his life drained out on the sidewalk … that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. So yes, I said ‘insurrection’: People acting out of frustration and hopelessness and understanding that they don’t have an establishment — political or otherwise — that really cared about their ability to work or have good health care. Yes, I choose to call it an insurrection.”
