“When they look at me, they see blue,” the narrator states. “To be blue, I and over 700,000 brother and sisters swore an oath to uphold the constitution of my country, my state and my city, so help me God. Yet, even in such numbers, I’m a minority as this strange form of racism continues to engulf the country.”
The video is based on an essay by John Pappas, written after two NYPD officers were murdered in Brooklyn in December 2014.
“Broad-brush attacks generalizations and assumptions by college professors, politicians, community activists, merchants, and violence from people who I am committed to serving and in spite of being afraid to proudly say in my private life that I am blue for fear of physical injury death or the safety of my loved ones,” the voiceover added.
The video features news clips of slain officers, including Miosotis Familia, a single-mother and NYPD officer, who was shot in the Bronx last July.
While some are praising the video’s message, many find the conflation of race to be insulting.
