For being a better human being than many of us could ever claim to be, Botham Jean’s brother has been labeled an Uncle Tom, a sell-out, and a self-hating black man.— CJ Pearson (@thecjpearson) October 3, 2019
If you’re criticizing the way Botham’s brother has chosen to grieve, the problem isn’t him. It’s you. pic.twitter.com/JoBkND2BJ1
How Botham Jean’s brother chooses to grieve is his business. He’s entitled to that. But this judge choosing to hug this woman is unacceptable. Keep in mind this convicted murderer is the same one who laughed about Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination, and killing ppl on sight. https://t.co/Nu5QGOIR1K— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) October 2, 2019
Amber Guyger murdered Botham Jean.— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) October 2, 2019
The jury gave her 10 years.
The judge hugged her.
The victim’s brother hugged her.
A police officer in court brushed her hair.
