Tariq Nasheed Says Black Criminals Aren’t Really Black but Are White Men Wearing Black Masks

Carlisle du Rozel, Squawker, December 30, 2017

You might know Tariq Nasheed under his rapping alias K-Flex, who produced the song Wash Yo Ass, a colorful masterpiece that captures African American culture and musical prowess.

On December 29, 2017, Nasheed posted a tweet featuring a video showcasing a mask and gloves set that have been designed to resemble the features and skin tone of a black man.

There are several companies that make realistic looking “Black men” masks, and white supremacists are using these masks to commit crimes, like bank robberies,etc. I wonder what other crimes they could be committing using these masks?

With the above tweet, it would appear that Nasheed is inferring that many “white supremacists” commit crime beneath these realistic “black men” masks. There is no empirical evidence that suggests that this is a regular occurrence, nor is there any reason to believe that the disproportional rate of black-on-black violence is due to white men pretending to be black men while committing crime.
