The Oregonian Issued a Tweet Assuring Readers That It Was Only a White Guy Who Was Killed by Police So No Need to Riot & Loot- by Not the Bee

Well, other than saying hey people do not riot because a useless life of a white man has been taken, look at that intentional lowercase white vs “Black” which is infuriating.

The Oregonian issued a tweet assuring readers that it was only a white guy who was killed by police so no need to riot and loot

It’s still a tragedy, mind you, just not a tragedy tragedy if you know what I mean.

The man who was killed was a white male in his 30s, according to three sources with knowledge of the investigation. The Oregonian/OregonLive is identifying the man’s race in light of social unrest prompted by police shootings of black people.

The paper quickly discovered that suggesting it was okay that police shot a white man to death was not going over too well, and so swiftly deleted the tweet and added this clarification.

We included information in an earlier tweet about why we identified the victim’s race that was poorly wordedIt was not intended to minimize what happened, only to provide context. We generally do not identify race in news stories but often do when reporting police shootings.

If your business is conveying information through the written word, one has to assume that it was worded exactly as intended. The problem for The Oregonian was not that it was poorly worded, it was that it was poorly received.

In fairness to the Oregonian, a crowd had turned out immediately but given this is Portland, the protest was less about social justice and more about primarily white people screaming incoherently. (Language warning.)

Some choice excerpts:

This from a lady with a bullhorn.

How many people do you kill people? How many times do you pull out your trigger? How many times do you bang bang bang.

I listened to it about ten times to make sure I was getting it right.

Can you imagine the people they wouldn’t give a bullhorn to?

Your $#%&ing coworker just murdered a person!

The person saying this had no idea what happened. No one did at this point. (It has since been reported that the man was waving around a gun replica of some kind and was first shot with non-lethal munitions.)

Abolish the police!

The quality of the high-pitched shrieking here and parroting of mindless slogans with no real understanding of the consequences to people who are not her, strongly suggests to me a gender studies major who lives in a nice upper-middle class neighborhood.

$#%& you!

This was from an obvious moron.

$#%& you!

Which was immediately echoed by his equally moronic but marginally less imaginative friend.

Hey, some people were born leaders, some born followers.

It was all like that, “quit your job,” “murderers,” “boooo,” etc.

Why on earth would anyone want to police this city?

Oh, right, they don’t.

Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible serves as the blueprint of faith, and the New Testament provides us with God's faith and the power to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. Regardless of the severity of cancer, healing can be achieved through faith in God's word. When Jesus raised the dead, he did not discriminate based on the level of death. He simply called forth life. Let's explore how he did it. The first time Jesus brought someone back from the dead was the daughter of Jairus, an official in Jerusalem. Although she had passed away, she was only recently deceased. The second time was the son of a widow in Nain who had been dead for just one day. Lastly, Jesus raised Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany, who had been dead for three days. He raised them all. No matter how insurmountable your problem may seem, Jesus is the resurrection and the light. Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent, and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian or not. If you are, you believe this because it is predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible. But if you are not a Christian, you read the news and notice that the satanic world government is their agenda. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal 12-year timeline matches the agenda 2030. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Born-again Christians are happy and calm. Why? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done." 1. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2. We hold the Bible as the divinely inspired Word of God. 3. We believe that God loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. Through His precious blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4. We believe that the price for our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life has been paid by the blood of Jesus. These gifts are freely available to us through the grace of God. By His stripes, we were healed 2000 years ago. 5. We acknowledge that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit, who dwells within us and communicates with us through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books, and other means. This communication begins immediately after our salvation. 6. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. As born-again believers, we receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ, with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the apostles performed signs and wonders like Jesus, we too can accomplish these miracles through faith, and the Lord will work through us. 7. We condemn the Vatican's religion and many false prophets who have deceived Christians for centuries, hiding the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to maintain their power. We welcome all denominations and strive for unity in the body of Christ. 8. We believe that a born-again Christian never truly dies. When a believer's life on earth ends, they are promoted to heaven, and death holds no power over them. In heaven, we experience immense joy, love, peace, and the glory of God. Those who have had near-death experiences or have seen Jesus in a vision or dream know the indescribable relief and joy of being in His presence. To answer the question of why we are happy, we say that we could happily die at any moment. In fact, we long to go home and be with our Lord. However, we know that each one of us has a mission and purpose revealed to us by the Holy Spirit after our born-again experience. For the sake of fulfilling that mission, we remain joyful and relaxed in the spirit, knowing that we are called to save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved! Jesus will reveal Himself to you, and your life will undergo a significant transformation. Your marriage, health (especially addiction), finances, and all areas of your life will experience an extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
