Sheriff David Clarke SLAMS Beyonce's Controversial Super Bowl Act, Comparing It To...
Music artist Beyonce has garnered a lot of criticism for her Super Bowl performance last Sunday because many people felt it was a tribute to Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party.
In an interview with Fox Business, Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., who gained national attention for criticizing President Obama's response to the Ferguson riots in 2014 as well as criticizing the "Black Lives Matter" movement, had this to say:
“Musicians have long used their music, their trade, to make political statements in their music. [Beyonce] coming out...in those Black Panther type uniforms, would that be acceptable if a white band came out in hoods and white sheets in the same sort of fashion? We would be appalled and outraged. The Black Panthers are a subversive hate group in America. I think she could have done a better job.”
Do you agree with Clarke's comparison?
