Madonna is upset about the killing of George Floyd by four policemen in Minneapolis. It’s understandable. But her response is over the top and awful, making things so much worse with a final declaration of “Fuck the police!” What followed that post is Madonna’s adopted teenage son, David Banda, dancing to Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us,” a song that when it was initially released carried an anti-Semitic epithet that had to be expunged from broadcast versions but remains in some iterations. Someone’s just got to stop her from posting anymore to Instagram until she thinks through what this all means. She’s losing more points than she’s gaining. Also, while David is certainly a good dancer, and I know his intentions are pure, the sight of him expressing himself in political dance in Madonna’s expensive kitchen with a French bulldog in the background is a crazy juxtaposition of messages, isn’t it?

with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing ive seen in a long time. This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!! Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops. God Bless you George Floyd Im so sorry for you and your family. And all the senseless killings that have gone before you. Will it ever end? 🙏🏼 I pray to GOD it does one day. Until then—Fuck The Police! Yea I said it. Im not interested in being PC. Im interested in Justice. @shaunking #georgefloyd #justice #guncontrol
