The first African-American Miss Alabama called the man who shot and killed 5 Dallas police officers during a Black Lives Matter protest on Thursday a "martyr." Kalyn Chapman James, who was crowned in 1993, said in a tearful video on Facebook Sunday that while she doesn't want to "feel this way," she finds it difficult to be sad for the departed police officers and "can't help but feeling like the shooter was a martyr." "And I know it's not the right way to feel because nobody deserves to lose their lives," she said in the two minute video. "But I'm so torn up in my heart about seeing these men, these black men, being gunned down in our community...I wasn't surprised by what the shooter did to those cops and I think a lot of us feel the same way and I know it's not right and I definitely don't condone violence against innocent people." The comments on James' video were overwhelmingly positive. Many thanked the former beauty pageant winner for voicing her opinion. A martyr really thanks for making a bad situation worse in America. She says this isn't who she is, but in all reality she still said it. America we shouldn't even care that she didn't mean to say it, we should only focus on what she posted in her video by calling the Dallas Shooter a martyr. By calling this man a martyr this bitch has pretty much stated that she agrees with the killing of these five officers in Dallas, which will only lead to more problems between cops and the African American community. This ex beauty queen chose to use strong words that have likely rallied people up in the black community to want to kill cops. You can't take what you said back by calling the Dallas shooter a martyr, because you have said a strong word that goes with war by labeling Micah Johnson a Martyr. A martyr is the first death of a person which can cause all out war. Good choice of words you ignorant bitch.
