Ahmaud Arbery Was Mudered By An Armed White Lynch Mob That Is Still Being Protected By The American Government And Justice System

After Months Of Public Outrage, Ahmaud Arbery’s Murderers Have Been Arrested
WSB-TV ATLANTA – “The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced Thursday night that agents had arrested Gregory and Travis McMichael for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.
Ahmaud Arbery was killed on Feb. 23 in Brunswick, Georgia. Attorneys for Arbery’s family released a video on Tuesday alleging to show two white men in a pickup truck track him down and shoot him while he was jogging and unarmed on a residential street.
Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, have admitted to grabbing guns and pursuing Arbery as he jogged in their neighborhood, according to police records.
The GBI said the men were also charged with aggravated assault. The McMichaels were taken into custody and will be booked into the Glynn County Jail.”
Does An Arrest Mean A Guilty Verdict?
How often have we seen this? We indulge in some sense of accomplishment because the “killers” have been arrested, only to find out weeks or months later that those same “killers” are found not guilty despite audio/video evidence of them in the act.
Those murderers are safer in jail. A lot safer than walking around Georgia with every media outlet in the country showing their face. We think we won, but really they still win in this scenario.
Now they will officially be protected and provided food, healthcare, and be safe from an angry public. While the taxpayers of Georgia cover the expenses of their incarceration.
Although the evidence clearly shows those white men murdering Ahmaud Arbery in broad daylight, I have faith the racist white supremacist American Justice system will find some excuse, some justification for another Black man being murdered. They always have, always will. This is America.

What Does The Police Report Say?
THE AUGUSTA CHRONICLE – “Arbery was shot after two men saw him running in their neighborhood and armed themselves with guns before getting in a truck to pursue him, according to an incident report filed by Glynn County police.
Gregory McMichael told police that he was in his front yard when he saw “the suspect from the break-ins ‘hauling ass’ down the street.” McMichael told police that he and his adult son thought the man matched someone caught on a security camera committing a recent break-in in the neighborhood.
McMichael and his son, Travis, both grabbed guns because they “didn’t know if the male was armed or not,” accord to the police report. He told officers they first tried to stop Arbery by shouting, “Stop, stop, we want to talk to you!”
McMichael said Travis got out of the truck with a shotgun and that Arbery “began to violently attack” him and “the two men then started fighting over the shotgun,” the police report said. McMichael said his son fired two shots, according to the report.
The police report says Gregory McMichael turned Arbery onto his back to see if he was armed – but the report doesn’t say whether he had a weapon or not.”
Video Of Ahmaud Arbery’s Murder
Step-By-Step Breakdown Of The Video Showing Ahmaud Arbery’s Murder
CNN – “The 36-second video, which has been deleted from the radio station website, was taken by a person in a vehicle that pulls up behind a pickup truck that has stopped in the road. CNN has not independently verified who recorded the video.The recording has sound, but yelling in the video is unintelligible. It is not clear what happened immediately before or after the confrontation.
The video begins with a man in a white T-shirt jogging down the middle of street toward a pickup. One man is in the bed of the truck and the other is standing near the driver’s side door. As the man in the T-shirt approaches, he goes around the pickup on the right side, and just as he’s passing the front of the vehicle, he makes a left and begins tussling with the man with the shotgun.
A shot goes off, and the two disappear off the left side of the screen as the man who was running appears to throw a punch. The man standing in the back of the truck takes out a handgun but doesn’t fire. A second shot is heard as the men who are fighting are off-screen.
As the men come back into view, both are still grabbing the shotgun. The man in the T-shirt appears to throw a right-handed punch at the man’s head as a third gunshot is heard. The man who was shot recoils, as blood appears on his T-shirt below his left ribcage. He stumbles and falls in the middle of the two-lane road. The man with the shotgun walks away as the other man runs toward them with his gun in his right hand.”
There Have Been No Arrests
THE AUGUSTA CHRONICLE – “There have been no arrests or charges in the case, prosecutor Tom Durden told the Associated Press. He said he plans to have a grand jury hear the evidence in the shooting. But a grand jury hearing won’t happen at least until mid-June when Georgia courts reopen from coronavirus restrictions.
“I am of the opinion that the case should be presented to the grand jury of Glynn County for consideration of criminal charges against those involved in the death of Mr. Arbery,” Durden said in a statement Tuesday.”
“An Arrest Should’ve Been Made Already”
CBS News – “The family of Ahmaud Arbery is asking for justice more than two months after he was shot and killed in Georgia. No one has been arrested or charged in the death of the 25-year-old black man.
Police say Arbery was chased by two white men in Brunswick who suspected him of a crime, but his family says all he was doing was jogging.
“Ahmaud is no longer with us and he’s not with us because two men followed him while he was jogging and killed him,” Arbery’s mother Wanda Jones told CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca. “An arrest should have been made already.”
The Weaponizing of Whiteness
THE FINAL CALL – “What makes this case even more troubling is it highlights another disturbing trend seen across America of late: the weaponizing of Whiteness, or the belief by a White person that he or she has the legal or moral authority to police Black bodies and Black behavior.
Mr. Johnson feels this is due in large part to the number of Black men and women killed at the hands of White people—in most cases, police officers—with almost little to no punishment given, and absolutely no justice given to the family of the Black victim.
“White folks have taken it upon themselves to act this way because the police have given them a sense of power, that if they want to use guns to straighten something out when it comes to them feeling Black people aren’t doing what they think they should be doing,” Mr. Johnson said, adding, “White people have been emboldened by seeing the police kill Black people, so they feel like it’s okay.”
Protesters Demand D.A. Jackie Jackson Resign
WTOC – “The outcry over the Feb. 23 shooting of Ahmaud Arbery has intensified after cellphone showing the shooting that killed the 25-year-old surfaced online Tuesday.
Wednesday protesters gathered at the Glynn County Courthouse in Brunswick, calling for the resignation of District Attorney Jackie Jackson.
Protests calling for the district attorney to resign.
Jackie Johnson has recused herself from the case as one of the men involved in the shooting formerly worked as an investigator in her office.
The NAACP also calling for the resignation of the chief of police.
“We want the immediate dismissal of Glynn County police chief. Currently, he’s on paid administrative leave. And with this level of negligence and injustice, he should not be on our payroll,” said Brunswick NAACP President John Davis Perry, II.

The Truth About Racism & “White Supremacy”
“White skin is a form of albinism. There is no difference, microscopically speaking, between the white skin of a white person and the skin of a person designated as an albino. My central thesis here is that white-skinned peoples came into existence thousands of years ago as the albino mutant offsprings of black-skinned mothers and fathers in Africa. A sizable number of these Black parents had produced, rejected and then cast out of the community their genetic defective albino offspring, to live away from the normal black skin-pigment population with the awareness of their rejection and alienation…..anxiety in the Western civilization and culture, stems from the origin of that culture – which rests most fundamentally in the production of Albino mutants from Black parents in Africa. Anxiety, like alienation in Western culture, is the result of the rejection of these albinos because of their genetic deficiency status and their subsequent abandonment and migration northward to form what is now recognized as the white race. This global white collective maintains a different appearance from the rest of humankind, and they dislike this difference. Therefore, they tan and use makeup. They remain a minority of the world’s people, surrounded globally by a black, brown, red, and yellow global majority. The white global collective remains genetically recessive to the black, brown, red, and yellow global majority and lives each day and each minute of every hour in the continuous fear of white annihilation by the global majority of genetic dominants. This fundamental fear of albino isolation, abandonment and genetic annihilation, is at the core of Western civilization – a civilization structured to ensure white genetic survival. This survival plan necessitates the subjugation and control of all non-white peoples. I define this subjugation and control as the white supremacy system.” – Dr. Frances Cress Welsing – The ISIS Papers, The Keys to the Colors
Welsing’s theory proposed that people that classify themselves as “white” are the “mutant” or “albino” offspring of Africans and that they were rejected by their dark-skinned parents, then forced north into Europe to escape persecution and the deadly sun rays. Being aware of their own melanin deficiency and rejection, they began to hate and fear ‘blackness’, darkness, and brown skin.
Not only because it became obvious the rest of the people on the planet had various degrees of brown, but also because it became obvious that if someone ‘white’ or melanin deficient had sexual intercourse with someone who was ‘black’ or melanin sufficient that the child would come out of the womb with more melanin then the melanin deficient parent.
In other words, if people classified as white continuously had sexual relations (which usually leads to pregnancy) with people classified as non-white then at some point, there would no longer be any people classified as white in the known universe.
Thus in the conscious or unconscious mind of the Caucasian collective it became necessary to create a system that prevented the genetic annihilation of themselves. This is how and why the system of White supremacy – a system based on the mistreatment, violence, and subjugation of all non-white peoples around the world in all areas of people activity – became the most destructive and influential force on the planet. According to Welsing’s theory, racism can be traced back to an inferiority complex in the Caucasian psyche, based on the lack of melanin.
It is important for both non-white and white people to understand this. Only when the truth about racism is faced, and understood, can we have real progress. The goal should be to achieve justice, for all peoples in the known Universe, in all areas of people activity. While the system of White Supremacy exists as the dominant force on planet earth, causing mistreatment and violence to all non-white peoples of the known Universe on the basis of “the wrong skin color”, then there can no be justice.
So anyone, non-white or white who proclaims to stand for justice and truth must TRY to eliminate the system of White Supremacy, every minute of every day, in all areas of people activity in the known Universe (Economics, Education, Entertainment, Labor, Law, Politics, Religion, Sex, and War) and replace it with a system of justice for all peoples in the known universe.
