Americans will likely face a domestic terror attack from disgruntled black Americans – not ISIS – for allowing racism to perpetuate, a black Texas-based civil rights organization representative said during a Tuesday press conference on the McKinney pool party controversy.
Rev. Ronald Wright, executive director of Justice Seekers Texas, told media outlets that negative incidents involving police will likely lead to ISIS-style terrorism in the country, specifically targeting law enforcement.
“We’re setting the stage for a terrorist attack in this country. And the group is not going to be ISIS, it’s going to be ‘US-IS,’ us against these unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city,” Wright said.
Wright’s comments follow what has now been dubbed the “Pool Party Controversy,” an incident in which a Texas police officer drew his firearm on unarmed black teenagers before throwing a bikini-clad girl to the ground last Friday.
“He grabbed me, twisted my arm on my back and shoved me in the grass and started pulling the back of my braids,” Dajerria Becton told Fox 4. “I was telling him to get off me because my back was hurting bad.”
Witnesses to the incident claim the officer, who resigned after being placed on administrative leave, specifically targeted minorities after arriving on scene.
Others, such as attendee Jordan Gray, a 16-year-old black male, told CNN that although police appeared to be putting only black people on the ground, the incident had nothing to do with race.
“It’s just separate events happening,” Gray said. “It was just a young girl put on the ground against her will and that’s all it was. It was not racism. It wasn’t none of that.”
Rev. Wright’s controversial comments will likely add more fuel to an already tense situation and may attract billionaire George Soros-backed protesters, notorious for being linked to violent incidents.
