Westbrook on Terence Crutcher & Being Fearful of Cops Because He’s Big & Black

#enoughisenough from @realjohngray – A terrorist in New Jersey bombs New York has a shoot out with cops and gets grazed with a bullet. And safely arrested. A man with car trouble in Tulsa gets TAZED then shot. And then they stand there. Don't offer him aid, comfort, nothing. No gun. No criminal activity. And I've heard people say "he should have complied". As if that has ANYTHING TO DO WITH KILLING AN UNARMED MAN. Stop making excuses. His color got him killed. If that was a well dressed non-black female, do you think the helicopter pilot would have said "she looks like a bad person" in the same manner they said Terrance Crutcher "looks like a bad person"? Of course not. His color was the only thing that made him bad. From 500 feet in the air. I'm tired man. And I'm scared. Cuz I'm big and my skin is brown. Lord don't let my car break down, don't let me be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Don't let me reach for my phone or do anything threatening. Jesus help THIS NATION.

Russell Westbrook stands 6′ 3″ — 190 pounds — so I’m sure on a slightly dark road, he’d look “big” and “black” to scary police as well.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star took to Instagram moments ago, speaking out against the senseless killing of the unarmed Terence Crutcher, when more sinister threats have been calmly detained, without gunshot or incident.

Westbrook — frustrated like the rest of us, took to social media to call out the hypocrisy of the police only grazing an alleged ‘bombing’ suspect — while Crutcher — an unarmed man whose car broke down — was only guilty of being black.
