Skip to comments.Jason Whitlock claims leaked George Floyd footage shows early narrative of his death was a 'race hoax'

Sports journalist Jason Whitlock wrote Tuesday that the early narrative surrounding the death of George Floyd amounted to a "race hoax" after leaked body camera footage of the incident that led to Floyd's death May 25 was made public.
"The George Floyd case is not a race crime," Whitlock, who is Black, wrote on OutKick.com. "No rational person can watch that footage and conclude the police were motivated by Floyds Black race."
The footage shows four Minneapolis police officers struggling with Floyd before one of them, Derek Chauvin, ultimately pins Floyd to the ground in a scene that was broadcast around the world.
Although Whitlock said Chauvin wasn't justified in kneeling on Floyd's neck, he argued it would be "virtually impossible to convict [the] former officers."

It’s crazy. (i guess) I was watching some cop show from like 50 years ago and in one scene the cop’s knee was on a guy’s neck for many minutes while he waited for backup.
I guess the show wasn’t banned since this was only like a week ago.
Forget the name
This is no longer a debate about declining TV ratings for pro sports leagues. This is about the preservation of American freedom and ideals. The subversion of sports culture is directly tied to the subversion of American culture. https://t.co/Mk6V03eGmK— Jason Whitlock (@WhitlockJason) August 4, 2020
LEAKED VIDEO EXPOSES GEORGE FLOYDS DEATH AS TRAGEDY AND RACE HOAX USED TO DIVIDE US
by JASON WHITLOCK
Will anyone locked inside the NBAs groupthink bubble react to the leaked bodycam footage of George Floyds arrest and tragic death?
Will anyone ask NIAD spokesmen LeBron James, Steve Kerr, Gregg Popovich and Adam Silver for their thoughts on the leaked Floyd footage? Will one of the media information ministers locked inside the bubble be allowed to query James, Kerr, Pop or Silver on this topic? Will one of the woke warriors on Dan Le Batards radio show run a poll asking whether the leaked video footage is funny?
The NBA, the NFL and Major League Baseball chose to drape themselves in Black Lives Matter symbols and view all negative encounters between black people and white people as examples of white supremacy.
Life is far more complicated than the race-baiting that gets retweeted and liked over Twitter. What happened to George Floyd is more complicated than the substance-less assertion that Derek Chauvin acted out of racial animus. Chauvin abused his power. His defense lawyers will argue he was baited into abusing his power by Floyd.
Its the same excuse pro sports Three Stooges Adam Silver, Roger Goodell and Rob Manfred will make years from now when the mainstream media finally objectively evaluates this era of sports.
Moe (Silver), Larry (Goodell) and Curly (Manfred) have been played and used by anarchists and communists who are using opportunists to promote an American race war.
I think placing a person in a prone position may make it easier to breathe. Who knows, the guy might have died earlier if they hadn’t restrained him.
And the early narrative was that the cops didn’t give a hoot about his condition, while the reality is that they did call EMTs to the scene.
“will make years from now when the mainstream media finally objectively evaluates this era of sports.” -— Given that there is a good chance the left will still control the US in the years ahead, there will be no “objective” evaluations in the future.
>> Although Whitlock said Chauvin wasn’t justified in kneeling on Floyd’s neck,
Certainly justified if SOP for the given situation.
The details of the case were obviously withheld to give rise to the presumption of guilt and consequently the opportunistic mayhem.
There goes Faux News capitalizing “black” now. The only reason for capitalizing that word is as a statement of hatred against whites.
Every bit of this whole s**tshow is based on a lie.
Just like hands up dont shoot.
Muslim Ellison purposely withheld from the public the just leaked video.
The breathing issue, one of the top six problems associated with the use of Fentanyl....was already starting as he sat in the backseat of the police cruiser. I think they could have laid him on the ground with no restraint, and he was going to die before the EMT guys got there.
Whitlock will be unemployable tomorrow.
He said if they laid him flat his throat would shut off his breathing, So if you can't keep him upright, rescuerers lay such victims on their stomach with their head to the side
Adams lost his stepson to fentanyl overdose and crusades about china being behind that epidemic..
In the way of background, Zimmerman is charging that Trayvon Martins support team, including Martins parents and their attorney Benjamin Crump, knowingly substituted an imposter witness for the real phone witness in order to secure Zimmermans arrest for the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman and his attorney Larry Klayman were inspired to launch the suit based on the research of filmmaker Joel Gilbert, as seen in his documentary film and book of the same name, The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America.
Can a person get a fair trial if Benjamin Crump is involved?
Sure seems that way. The media doing its part to stir up trouble.
Has anybody informed Jason that it was never about racism to BLM either? This is, and always has been about power. Power for the real racists of BLM.
Who has Jasons back? This is gonna get rough for him
A masked man in his car drives around my neighborhood with his back window half way down and a large angry German Shepherd snarling barking out the back window. I think his name is Floyd. My wife calls him Luna as in lunatic. It’s true.
I knew it was a pretext from the get go, just like Hillary’s “incendiary video.”
