In early July, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, who is a graduate of HBCU Morehouse College in Atlanta, and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton appeared on CNN to discuss the deadly Dallas attack that took the lives of five police officers.
The black college grad said he has been racially profiled on State of the Union with Jake Tapper.
When asked what advice he has to Black parents, especially those who have sons on what to tell their children after the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge and Philander Castile in Falcon Heights, Johnson said, “Well, I obviously got some experience with this as a parent, and as somebody who’s been around. I’m 59 years old now, and I’ve had my share of unpleasant encounters with law enforcement when I was much younger.”
Tapper followed by asking “What kind of experience did you have as a younger man, if you don’t mind me asking, sir?”
Johnson replied, “Well, you know, the type of road encounters that others have talked about, but you know, we have to put it in perspective and of course they’re unpleasant.”
In the video, Johnson also said he rejects any such notion that the Obama Administration is, at least in part, responsible for what happened in Dallas, you can watch the entire video below.
