W. Kamau Bell, a black comedian and host of CNN’s “United Shades of America,” said on Friday that he warns his children not to be surprised if he is killed by a police officer.
In a segment on CNN’s “Legal View,” host Ashleigh Banfield asked Bell about what his conversations are like with his children and he replied, “That she shouldn’t be surprised if one day she comes home and finds out that daddy has been killed by a police officer.” (RELATED: Police: Dallas Suspect ‘Upset About Black Lives Matter,’ ‘Wanted To Kill White People’)
“Oh, God. I really was hoping you weren’t going to say that,” Banfield replied. (RELATED: Dead Shooter Identified, 3 Suspects In Custody After Killing 5 Officers, Wound 7 Others At Dallas Anti-Police Protest)
Bell made these comments in the aftermath of five police officers being killed, seven being wounded. One of the suspects told the police that he was “upset about Black Lives Matter” and “wanted to kill white people,” especially white police officers.
