We have a problem with politicians making up things so they can get reelected’

When BBC viewers saw a news presenter turn to an American black man for his reaction to the Derek Chauvin verdict, most likely expected to hear an affirmation of the conviction along with a lament that the United States remains a “systemically racist” nation.

But that’s because they weren’t familiar with Brandom Tatum, a former officer for the Tucson Police Department in Arizona and a co-founder of the BLEXIT movement of blacks leaving the Democratic Party

“Policing in America is not inherently racist, we do not live in a racist country,” he declared.

The interview with the iconic British broadcaster began with Tatum’s reaction to the verdict.

“First of all, I think most of what I heard on the broadcast all the way here is confusing to me,” Tatum said. “I think we’re living in the twilight zone. This conviction, in my personal opinion, did nothing for our country, I mean people are living a lie.”

Tatum pointed out the unusual speed with which Chauvin was charged, only days after the incident, then tried and convicted, calling it “the swiftest judgment I’ve ever seen in my life.”

“I’m not really sure why people are acting like this is monumental,” he said.

Is America a racist country?

Tatum said Chauvin did not get a fair trial, noting, for one, the city paid the family of George Floyd $27 million just before the jury was selected. The defense will have a case on appeal, he said.

“I don’t know why this [case] is such a big focal point, other than people are making money off of the pain of people in our country,” said Tatum.

It’s not a “landmark case,” he insisted, it’s about advancing a “political agenda.”
