Black Portland Cop Tells You All You Need to Know About Protests (Video)

Buck Sexton,the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” on Thursday pointed to an interview with a black Portland police officer that you have probably not seen because it does not fit into the mainstream news narrative.

Officer Jakhary Jackson, who has been on the force for about 10 years and is now part of its rapid response team, told a press conference last week about how life as a police officer in the city has changed. For weeks, Portland has been ground zero for violent protests and the city’s Democrat mayor has been criticized as unable to handle the crisis.

Sexton pointed out that the city has seen some of the country’s most violent protests and the staging ground for antifa groups. He said police there have been dealing with the unrest for months. He said these protesters have been inspired by the Democrat Party and the media that are “controlled by the left in this country that wants to divide us by race.”

Jackson, a graduate of Portland State University, recalled interactions with the anarchists in the city. He said, “A lot of times, someone of color—Black, Hispanic, Asian—will come up to the fence, and want to talk directly to me: ‘What do you think about George Floyd? What do you think about what happened with the police?’ [Then] Someone white comes up and ‘Eff the police, don’t talk to him!’”

He continued, “There’s a saying that if you’re a black cop, you’re not black.’ I take this uniform off, I’m suspicious. I look like someone that these people would call the police on. Me putting on this uniform does not erase that history I’ve had.”

Sexton said you will not see that interview on any mainstream news channel because it does not fit into the media’s narrative but said the interview is a “must watch” for everyone across the country to get a better sense about what is occurring on the street level.

“He’s telling you what we all knew was going to happen here,” Sexton said. 

Sexton said the country was initially mortified about Floyd’s death in police custody. “But the left was never interested in that. It was always the ignition point for the exploitation of their own political movement,” he said.

The movement has “really turned into a bunch of mostly white, ignorant liberal millennials who were showing up at these protests and saying incredibly, truly racist things to a black cop. Real racism. You know, Nazi Germany kind of racist stuff to a black cop. And they think they’re fighting racism,” said Sexton.
