Brandon Tatum, an African-American former Tucson police officer, went viral on social media for delivering an incredible video response to the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests and riots that have taken place since the death of George Floyd in police custody on Memorial Day.
“I’ve got a question for you protesters out there,” says Tatum at the beginning of the video. “I’ve got a question for you SJWs out there. For all you people that are putting that little black box on your Instagram. I’ve got a question for you. What have you accomplished? What has been accomplished by your virtue signaling? What has been accomplished by all of your protesting and looting and vandalizing property? What have you accomplished?”
Tatum asked how it makes sense to protest the death of a Black man in one city by killing other Black people in riots across America.
“Somebody riddle me this. How in the world – how on God’s green earth are you protesting the death of one man, which leads to you destroying the lives of multiple other black people, multiple black businesses, destroying the economic success of multiple cities all around the country?”
