NextImg:Capehart: DeSantis Signaled Those Who Believe Black People Are 'Worthy of Extermination'

Not only did Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart tell the Friday edition of PBS NewsHour that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has nobody to blame, but himself for being booed in the aftermath of the Jacksonville shooting, but that DeSantis’s policies sent a signal to those who believe “Black people are inferior and therefore are worthy of extermination.”

At the end of a larger conversation about guns and gun control, Capehart put forth an addendum, “We can't talk about Jacksonville without talking about the political environment around Black people and particularly around Black history in Florida.”

Capehart also insisted that, “There is a reason Governor DeSantis was booed when he did the right thing by going to the community, but the community booed him for a reason, his so-called anti-woke legislation, what's happening with the teaching of Black history in Florida public schools.”

Alternatively, maybe the reason is because Capehart and his fellow media talking heads and activists keep deliberately spreading misinformation about what exactly it is Florida’s new history standards say.

Capehart would proceed to immediately do just that when he declared, “That sends a message not only to the Black community that the governor does not think much of you or your history or your contributions to this country, but it also sends a signal to those people, deranged or not, who believe that Black people are inferior and therefore are worthy of extermination.”

Wrapping up his aside, Capehart added, “If the governor doesn't want to be booed, he needs to do better, not just in terms of his rhetoric, but also in terms of his legislation.”

And Capehart needs to do a better job of not blaming others for atrocities because he would rather spread fake news.

JONATHAN CAPEHART: We can't talk about Jacksonville without talking about the political environment around Black people and particularly around Black history in Florida.

There is a reason Governor DeSantis was booed when he did the right thing by going to the community, but the community booed him for a reason, his so-called anti-woke legislation, what's happening with the teaching of Black history in Florida public schools.

That sends a message not only to the Black community that the governor does not think much of you or your history or your contributions to this country, but it also sends a signal to those people, deranged or not, who believe that Black people are inferior and therefore are worthy of extermination.

If the governor doesn't want to be booed, he needs to do better, not just in terms of his rhetoric, but also in terms of his legislation.
