Spider-Verse star, Shameik Moore is dragged on Twitter for suggesting Black people need to ‘find ways to avoid being killed’

American actor, Shameik Moore is being dragged on Twitter after he shared numerous tweets that appears to blame the African American community for the police brutality they suffer.

In a series of tweets, the actor appeared to suggest that it was the victims of police brutality who needed to change their behavior. He suggested that Black men are being killed because they have not learnt “how to deal with police”.

Moore, who famously voiced Miles Morales in the Oscar-winning ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’, wrote on Twitter: “See I have a very strong opinion that the black community hates to hear.. but needs to hear… we need to learn how to deal with police… and or racism… because THIS is the part of the scenario we have failed to fix.”

In a lengthy Twitter thread, Moore attempted to advise the Black community on how best to “avoid” being killed by police. He also pointed out that Blacks kill themselves too so the problem isn’t racism.

He tweeted: “We have to work on our community before blaming everything on “racist” and police. 1… there is STILL black on black violence that needs to be addressed… and 2.. if we KNOW that the wrong white person could change our whole life with a false accusation..WHY DO WE GIVE THEM THE ENERGY THEY WANT?”

He added in another tweet: “Give them an inch they WILL take a mile….. We literally know this already. At what point do we look at ourselves and make adjustments? Look… all I’m saying is.. in the MOMENT.. when we are experiencing racism.. can We the black community find ways to avoid being killed? Or hunted.”

Moore was called out for his tweets but he refused to back down and shared more tweets to defend his stance.

Reacting to the criticisms, Moore claimed that he “refuses to feel like a victim” or “have a slave mentality”. He also said that he does not face danger in his daily life as he “knows how to carry himself in tuff situations”.

He later claimed he had been misunderstood and his tweets were “taken out of context”. He also released videos, trying to explain himself.

In the videos, he appeared to suggest that black people should use their “resources” rather than protest. He used Rosa Parks as an example and stated that she could have used other means of transport rather than take a bus filled with White people to avoid suffering racism.

He said: “Rosa Parks, sitting at the front of the bus, right? What we don’t know as a black community is, [there were] black owned taxi cabs and black buses that could have been used during that time. This is something a lot of people might not want to hear.”

He added: “What I’m getting to with that is if the government decides to … shut off electricity, clean water and gas to any of the black neighbourhoods in America, there is literally nothing we can do but riot. We don’t have the resources. I think what we need to do is work internally and strengthen our minds and spirits.”

Moore got into more trouble with his explanation that appears to condemn Rosa Parks who stood against racism and discrimination.

Below are his tweets and the video where he tried to explain himself but ended up getting people angered the more.

Nigeria Immigration Service suspends redeployment of five female officers who participated in Falz’s ‘Don’t Rush’ challenge

Authorities of the Nigeria Immigration Service NIS, have suspended the redeployment of five female officers who participated in the viral #BopDaddychallenge by  singer, Falz.

 

Recall that in April this year, LIB shared the story of how the ladies identified as Priscilla Irabor, Catherine J. Bakura, Blessing Alfred Udida, Binti I. Attabor, and Ockiya Eneni, were issued a query for participating in the challenge in their uniforms. In the query letter, the ladies were accused of flaunting their bodies and desecrating the NIS uniform in the video. Read here.

 

The agency as a way of ”punishment” to the ladies, transferred them to different states across the country.

Nigerians took to social media to slam the agency for this move.

 

However in a series of tweets today, the NIS said the Comptroller General of the agency, Muhammad Babandede, has decided to suspend the deployment after his attention was drawn to the matter.

 

“The attention of the Comptroller General, Muhammad Babandede, MFR, has been drawn to some trending matters on some social media platforms regarding the deployment of some of our personnel to some formations across the country.

It is important to note that staff deployment remains a vital practice of regimented organisation such as ours and should be seen as such. As an agency, we maintain zero tolerance to any matters bordering on offences against discipline among members of our workforce irrespective of gender.

We have high premium for staff development and indeed encourage personal efforts but that must be within the confines of our rules and regulations.

The matter involving the personnel in question is still being investigated and therefore, the Comptroller General has directed that the earlier posting order be put on hold pending the conclusion of the investigation.” the statement read

‘He’s a danger to the community’ Judge shuts down R.Kelly’s third attempt to get out of jail over Covid-19 fears

A judge has denied singer R.Kelly’s request to leave jail due to the possibility of him contracting Covid-19, labeling Kelly a ‘danger to the community’ and a ‘flight risk’ .

This is the third time R.Kelly’s attempts to leave jail on ‘health conditions’ is being dismissed by the court as he is being held in prison over child sex abuse allegations, transmission of STDS and kidnapping.

 

In his motion for bail, which was filed earlier this month, Kelly complained that he was diabetic and overweight and therefore more susceptible to Coronavirus complications, and complained that conditions in his prison had become filthy, and it was only a matter of time before he caught the virus.

 

His two previous attempts to leave jail have been dismissed as the court felt his ‘Health’ reasons were not strong enogh to grant him bail.

Judge Donnelly, while dismissing Kelly’s application, said Kelly’s crimes involve the sexual abuse of minors that stretched for almost 25 years, and allegations like those do not merit bail. The judge said that although Kelly has insisted that if set free, he’d return to Illinois to stand trial like he did in his 2008 child porn trial, the grand jury found probable cause that he bribed witnesses in that case, and she doesn’t want a repeat of that alleged behavior.

”The defendant is charged in Illinois and New York with extraordinarily serious crimes, for which he faces a long prison term if convicted,” Judge Donnelly wrote in her decision

“That prospect makes him a flight risk. The nature of the charges—which include crimes against minor victims, threats against potential witnesses and paying bribes to keep witnesses from cooperating—make him a danger to the community, including that he could attempt to tamper with prospective witnesses.”

Kelly’s trial starts later this year.
