A Minneapolis Police Commander was FIRED over a RACIST CHRISTMAS TREE that was pictured that caused a huge uproar!!

Aaron Biard was removed as commander of the 4th precint as 2 other officers were on paid leave for this ugly christmas tree.

The tree was decorated with Newport cigarettes, police crime tape, a can of malt liquor and a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen cup

Mayor Jacob Frey called it despicable that amounted to a racist display as that picture was circulating on social media.

The city's North Side has a fractured relationship with police where it was the site of 2 weeks of protests on the 2015 fatal shooing of Jamar Clark.

The Twin Cities Coalition 4 Justice 4 Jamar formed against the precint and called for the immediate terminatio of those involved

Frey said he supports the chief's decision to remove the commander as 2 other officers will be investigated

Chief Medaria Aarandondo said he was ashamed and appalled by the behaviour of the officers as he will not be responsible for the day to day operations

Do you think the other cops involved with this racist christmas tree should be fired?

As long as every race is discriminated equally it can't be racist.

The only thing I can come up with is stretching that only black people like chicken. Other than that it's just takis and hot funyuns. Everybody loves those. Are hot Cheetos stereotypical, too? Legit curious.

Since 2004 I guess - it's not Funyuns in specific so much as Flamin' Hot items in general. Don't even need to say anything about malt liquor/Newports.

Check your local convenience stores I guess. The popcorn's pretty rare, but Funyuns aren't too hard to find. They have Flamin' Hot puffcorn too.

All Im saying it is could be as simple as lol guys I put a chip bag on my tree!...but the unfortunate truth is the items he selected generally are used to make racist jokes about certain demographics. Its just a little too convenient he THOSE items lol. Im not saying hang the dude, Im just saying I see how it can look sketchy. No need to be naive about it.

The thing with white nationalism is that I agree with the parts in bold here, nor do I see anything controversial about those parts... just not the part about an exclusively white nation because I don't support segregation.

White nationalism is a type of nationalism or pan-nationalism which espouses the belief that white people are a race[1] and seeks to develop and maintain a white national identity.[2][3][4] Its proponents identify with and are attached to the concept of a white nation.[5] White nationalists say they seek to ensure the survival of the white race, and the cultures of traditionally white ethnic groups.

Sure looks like you like white nationalism.
