Yes, the mother may have “over-reacted” as some people have said. But with the rampant murdering of people who fit into the category of “Black”, can you blame her especially since it seems like she was pulled over in an area without traffic/ witnesses.
Why shoot into her van loaded with children as she is moving away from police? The children are sitting in the back of the van!
She did eventually pull over, but near a business where the authorities will be less likely to destroy her and her children without witnesses.
Note to a “progressive” 1st world nation the Netherlands: This is not OK. “Black Pete” —>Black face, Afro wig, painted red lips = equals a derogatory representation of a specific demographic.
Shumba (lion in the Shona language of Zimbabwe). This plush doll is hand-knitted by Zimbabwean female artists in the GoGo Olive initiative which provides a means for women in Zimbabwe to earn a sustainable living for their families. This initiative has expanded and follows the proverb, “Each one, teach one”, where they teach knitting skills to women in prison as a form of rehabilitation.
