The 4th of July fireworks were barely extinguished before business as usual resumed in the United States. As White Supremacists never take a holiday from mauling black people, Louisiana’s Alton Sterling and Minnesota’s Philander Castile were gunned down on camera by police officers. No one has been charged for their respective deaths; social media hummed with fresh hashtags and rhetoric about justice. Much of this was scuttled when a Thursday evening Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, Texas was interrupted by gun fire. It was originally reported that multiple snipers fired into the crowd killing five police officers and wounding eleven others – including two civilians. Updated reports indicate that investigators believe Micah Xavier Johnson, a 25-year-old black male, is the lone shooter; officers allegedly killed him with an incendiary device after an extensive gun battle. However, alternate reports indicate Johnson died from a self-inflicted gun wound. With so many questions unanswered, many have concluded that President Obama and Black Lives Matter protesters are responsible for the mythological “war on cops.” It’s all being alleged that Johnson was “upset with White people,” which motivated his calculated attack. Much like the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy – which was also in Dallas, this shooting will greatly impact who resides in the White House. Then again, maybe the weekend opening of The Purge had a bigger impact than we think.
