Tlaib Says African Americans Should Be Hired for Specific Jobs

If you thought Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib was just racist towards Israelis, here is proof otherwise. Apparently, she is biased against anyone who isn’t like her.

In Detroit this past week, the congresswoman attended a PR tour of the Detroit police department. There she was spoken to about the department’s use of facial recognition software and how it is used to identify criminal suspects.

But she must have left her filter at home because what she said to Police Chief James Craig can be seen as nothing less than straight out racism. She told the police chief that only African Americans should be hired to use the newly implemented technology.

“Analysts need to be African-Americans, not people that are not,” she said. And explained herself by saying, “I think non-African Americans think African Americans all look the same.”

To add insult to injury, the police chief is black. And clearly, Tlaib is not African American.

Craig, obviously, disagreed with her and gave the perfect explanation for why that should not be the case.

He said, “I trust people who are trained, regardless of race, regardless of gender.” And he reiterated, “It’s all about the training.”

But that wasn’t the last we heard about Tlaib’s callous remarks. After the tour ended, Craig told the press that the congresswoman’s comments were a “slap in the face.”

He said, “It’s insulting. We have a diverse group of crime analysts, and what she said – that non-whites should not work in that capacity because they think all black people look alike – is a slap in the face to all the men and women in the crime center.”

And indeed, it was.

Her comments were offensive, no matter how you look at. Craig also said, “That’s something we train for, and it’s valuable training, but to say people be barred from working somewhere because of their skin color? That’s racist.”

And just about everyone who saw the video agreed. Yes, that’s right; there was even video proof of her insolence. (Her statement and the response from Craig come in at about the 3:50 mark.)

One person said, “That’s a racist statement, literally by definition.” Another remarked, “Here we have James Craig being poised and showing class while dealing with a complete racist.”

“Ignorant, racist, and thinks she knows everything. So, should mostly white communities only hire whites? Me guesses she doesn’t think that. Racist.”

And yet another, “How is this ok? Basically, she’s saying that you must be a certain race to qualify for this job. How is this ok? Imagine if someone went on record saying you have to be white for a job.”

A brief description of the technology being discussed by Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw proves even further just how wrong Tlaib is. He says that unlike the popular misconception, “the software doesn’t work on gender or race, it works on facial measurements.”

Shaw said, “If you have a good photo, the photo array will come back with people with the same facial makeup, whether they’re male, female, black, white, or whatever. It’s all about things like the spacing between the eyes, or where the ears are on the side of your head.”

And he continued, “That’s where the human element comes in. If you know you’re looking for a white male, and the system kicks out a white female, or a black male, or whatever, then a technician will flag that. Nobody uses the software on its own.”

He also let the Detroit News know, who spoke to him about the incident, that his force trains against unconscious bias. He said, “There’s implicit bias in everything we do. You just heard it in (Tlaib’s) comments.” But he explained that his officers are trained to recognize that and become unbiased.

Maybe his department should train a few members of Congress in this art. In fact, it should probably be a prerequisite to being elected into any public office.

It’s evident Tlaib her squad are biased in one direction or another at any given moment. This video proves that. We need people who are willing to look at every side of a situation, not just the ones they are predisposed to agree with. How can we look up to or even trust people who say things like this? And yet, she has the gall to call President Trump and his administration racist.

That’s the pot calling the kettle black.

  1. I along with many others wonder how this woman ever got elected to Congress? What concerns me more, however, is the lack of intelligence by the people who voted for her. It is a scary thought knowing that there are congressional districts in this country where the people can be duped into voting for such a radical candidate.

  2. Rashida Tlaib is another Whack Job. If she, AOC , Omar and Harris are the future of the Democratic Party, Heaven help us. Perhaps the combination of their four brains would equal an average brain.

  3. Churchill was correct about islam and muslims. Talib is one. We all know what the proper treatment is for rabis canines.

  5. It’s going to be WONDERFUL when she is relieved of her duties after LOSING the 2020 elections . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (KEEP America Great Again).


  7. She and the whole squad should be kicked out of our country for treason!!!! This proves that these people we are letting in our country don’t love America like we do!!! They actually hat it and us!! Wake the F up Americans or we will be a distant memory!!! Mexicans don’t want to assimilate either they want to take over our country and we are letting them!!!

  8. What a racist remark. As a Caucasian, If I had said something similar about African Americans looking alike, and I was a Republican politician, the press and a host of Democrats would demand that I resign as a racist. Yet the statement by Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib is ignored by the left leaning media. The hypocrisy is both glaring, absolutely disgusting, and hateful. But, since I’ve lost all faith in America’s press, I’m not surprised at all. If I ever meet one of them in person, I suspect I’d spit in their faces. I hope and pray that most if not all of MSN news networks eventually fade into oblivion and disappear like the dinosaurs. Sooner the better. I hate them all.

  9. The 9th paragraph is confusing – it states she is saying that non-whites should not work in that capacity – what she is saying is that only non- whites should work in that capacity. And that IS racist in itself!

  10. I have no problem telling black people apart. They do not all look alike. If to Tlaib they all look alike I’d say she’s the one with the problem. I think her prejudices are showing.

  11. I submit the following regarding this particular Congress Critter. Has she had her eyes and or her head examined recently? If not, how come, as she obviously is needful of examination.

  12. She’s always been racist with a nasty mouth! I’d never want my family to hear some of her foul mouth vocabulary. Yes she supposed to be an attorney! Give me a brake. Also what about campaign investigation for fraud!!! These people somehow think we owe them something we gave them freedom and they abuse it! That’s probably why her people have problems in her country. Maybe if she went there she could tell them what to do. Sure!!!

  13. Sickening how pompous she is ! I highly respect Chief Craig for the class and high professionalism he clearly showed in dealing with her comments!

  14. Tlaib proved her lack of decency and common sense when she immediately declared her hatred and her biased opinion as soon as Trump was elected when, in front of her own son, she said we will impeach that “m–fer” I am not a saint by any means but I have never made such a statement or one of a similar nature in front of my kids. The people who elected shows ignorance and bad judgment. What a recist.

  15. Rashida Tliab is Palestinian and supports groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Shahab. She receives funds from organizations affiliated to the Mullah regime of Iran. In private she has been heard to use the term Nigger for African Americans . The racism shield is used by her to attack opponents and also to defend herself from any criticism levied at her. The other members of the squad Omar, Pressley and Oscar also follow the same policy as Tliab.
