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?

I know its sort of weird, but its definitely true that some foods and snacks are associated with socioeconomic status. Like those Takis and Funyuns in particular are very prevalent in lower class neighborhoods and schools and I would be surprised to see them in other settings to be honest. But thats just my own experience living in the USA.

Don't make me racist the racism... I don't associate snacks and beers/sodas with any race, and I don't mean out of any sort of neutrality - it's simply not a stereotype I am familiar with.

Id guess they were fired because of the Popeyes cup but thats only from this explanation from Duckbear and not actually looking into it at all.

Okay now I googled it and

at:

Police Chief Aarondondo
As soon as it was realized what the display was, it was removed.

So basically it was okay until someone screamed racism and then it was removed...

Also it was an Inspector who was demoted by the Chief and no one was fired, apparently.

I've always considered Newports to be almost exclusively white trash. Not to mention that Funyuns and Popeye's are fucking delicious and I can haunt a building with my whiteness.

Do these folk who complained about this tree get offended when they walk past any fried chicken place?

It's a pretty neutral picture honestly, if you look at the picture and think, "wow, that's racist" your probably a little bit of a racist weather you wanna admit it or not, not that that's a big deal, unless your white of course

The thing is that it's not about how you personally perceive watermelon/chicken. It's a symbol. On the surface, watermelons/chicken are just food; but if you read between the lines, you can tell that the person who made that tree is basically hanging up the kinds of snacks/drinks/cigarettes you are liable to see in a neighborhood that suffers from high crime.

So then youre saying its insulting to criminals, not any particular race, right...? Or are you trying to insinuate that one or more particular races are criminals...?

I'm not insinuating that, rather the person who decorated that tree is. That's why the tree is pretty insulting.
