You’ve probably heard the name Ben Crump mentioned over the past year multiple times. Attorney Crump is the lawyer who represents George Floyd’s family, Duante Wright’s family, and the victims and families of victims of supposed racist white police.
He continuously calls out white police officers for their supposed white supremacy, racism, and “white privilege”.
Exercising is often a luxury that Black Americans can't afford! Countless Black Americans are assumed to be a THREAT for simply existing & their experiences are minimized! We need white Americans to LISTEN & educate themselves on the privilege they carry! https://t.co/SSAfJiDfwi— Ben Crump (@AttorneyCrump) April 17, 2021
He’s known for talking about police brutality, as well as how white cops get treated differently than black cops simply because of their race.
Former Minneapolis cop Mohamed Noor was convicted of 3rd-degree murder for killing an unarmed white woman in '17.— Ben Crump (@AttorneyCrump) April 16, 2021
Former ofc. Kim Potter was charged yesterday w/ 2nd-degree manslaughter for killing #DaunteWright.
Similar cases w/ very different charges for Black vs. white cops.
Is that so? Something never mentioned is that Crump has a brother named Vincent. Vincent Crump is a former Tallahassee, Florida police officer.
Crump was fired from his job as a police officer after a white woman came forward accusing him of raping her during a traffic stop in 2018.
During the traffic stop he had allegedly claimed that he smelled marijuana in her vehicle; but he allegedly offered the woman a deal to stay out of trouble. Assistant State Attorney Sarah Dugan argued that Crump played on the woman’s fear of getting arrested to get the woman to have sex.
There were two mistrials before Crump was finally convicted. In both trials, the jurors were debating whether the woman consented or was coerced into sex.
Crump’s attorneys claimed that she had consented to the sex.
During the 2nd trial, the victim spoke up.
“No, I wasn’t happy. It was very fake. I was very nervous, so obviously, I can’t tell people how I feel,” the victim said while on stand. “So, I had to play along with it, because I was scared. He’s intimidating. He’s this big giant dude right in front of me, so I didn’t know what to do.”
Crump was sentenced to two months in jail for the incident and is currently on a five year probation.
Attorney Ben Crump continues to claim that white cops aren’t properly punished for bad behavior, that white cops get away with abusing or killing black people, in spite of the fact that his brother Vincent raped a white woman while on duty and only received a two month sentence.
He talks about supposed white privilege, racism, and white supremacy from white cops. Using that logic, is Vincent a racist, black privileged, black supremacist?
If one is attacking others, they should at least be transparent about it.
“The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I’m sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions. I am a siren, a mermaid; I know that I am beautiful while basking on the ocean’s waves and I know that I can eat flesh and bones at the bottom of the sea. You are a white witch, a wizard; your spells are manipulations and your cauldron from hell yet you wrap yourself in white and wear a silver wig.”
