Family Guy: Black-On-Black Crime

From NewsBusters:

After a ridiculous episode in which Peter Griffin shoots Cleveland Brown, Jr, the son of his black friend and next door neighbor, and nearly burns down their home, Brown, Sr. shows Family Guy viewers how to get the media to disappear and stop covering a shooting. At the end of "A Shot in the Dark," Peter Griffin takes responsibility for the shooting, telling the angry mob that Cleveland, Jr. didn’t do anything wrong.

Peter surrenders himself to the police and is prepared to go to prison for his mistakes when Cleveland, steps in and takes the blame himself, telling reporter Tricia Takanawa, “I, Cleveland Brown, a black man, shot Cleveland Brown, Jr., another black man.” The assembled crowd immediately disappears.

Black Lives Matter, but not so much when the shooter is black.

That is pathetic.
