“I was railroaded by ABC on the two-year anniversary of my father’s death! That’s what I have to do? A Black person has to yell to be heard?”
Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner – a Black man who was choked to death by New York Police Department officers, said she felt “Railroaded” as she tried to meet with the president, after ABC town hall on race relations.
Erica said Thursday, July 14, that the ABC executives lied to her. She called the town hall a “farce”. Erica said she was angry not only because she couldn’t at first talk to the president, but with ABC, and the company using her pain to “profit from Black misery and oppression.”
She was later given the opportunity to speak with President Obama concerning race in America, accountability, police interactions, and Black lives matter.
The ABC, just like most of the others mainstream media in the USA, seek not justice for Black people but try to earn money speculating on their sad stories.
During the broadcast, President Obama and Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick also engaged in a tough dialogue concerning the recent deaths of five Dallas police officers.
Patrick said that the president should “consider being careful when there is an incident of not being too quick to condemn the police without due process and until the facts are known.”
Obama responded, saying, “I have been unequivocal in condemning any rhetoric directed at police officers. So I think, Lt. Gov., you’d have to find … any message that did not include a very strong support for law enforcement in all my utterances dating back to Ferguson because I rely on law enforcement to protect me and my family, just like everybody else does”.
