Dave Patrick Underwood was a black man in front of the Ronald V Dellums Federal Building and US Courthouse in Oakland, CA. He was murdered in a drive-by shooting as part of the larger rioting and looting that’s going on throughout California under cover of “protesting” the murder of George Floyd, another black man, 2,000 miles away in Minneapolis, MN.
Underwood was employed by the DHS’ Federal Protective Service, he was on duty guarding the building, and he was in uniform.
California’s Progressive-Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom,
who speaks of the protests that followed Floyd’s death as an example of people “rightfully outraged at how systemic racism is allowed to persist,” said of Underwood’s murder that “no one should rush to conflate this heinous act with the protests.”
Apparently, Dave Patrick Underwood wasn’t black enough to suit Newsom.
