King was “rattled” and left speechless by today’s news on CBS This Morning (via toofab)

"Once again I say thank goodness that there's videotape," said King after viewing the footage."As the daughter of a black man and the mother of a black man, this is really too much for me today."

"I'm still rattled by this last story and she's practically strangling her dog to make these false accusations against another black man," she continued, referencing the Minneapolis incident as well."I'm still so upset by that last story where the man is handcuffed underneath a car where people are pleading he can't breathe and we're watching a man die."

"So we go from that story to this story, where she falsely accuses a black man on television," continued King."I don't even know what to do or how to handle this at this particular time. I know that this is ... I am speechless. I am really, really speechless about what we're seeing in television this morning. It feels to me like an open season and it's not sometimes a safe place to be in this country for black men and today it's too much for me.

After her cohosts reiterated how disturbing Amy Cooper's behavior was, King doubled down on the importance of video in these situations -- saying it's necessary"so you can see what it happening here."

TooFab Token black woman GayleKing

TooFab Amy Cooper is a despicable human, a racist and a bigot. Share her home address so the world can peacefully demonstrate in her white privileged world

TooFab It's to a point where a black man needs to wear a bodycam all the time just to prove they aren't lying.

TooFab After the nonsense she pulled about Kobe. GAYE PLEASE STFU, and let us black men try and protect each other

TooFab The lady in the park video is an asshole. She abused that poor dog and made a point of bringing up his race, but the guy is not completely innocent and blameless. His own words: 'I'm going to do what I want, but you're not going like it.' That's an outright threat.

TooFab Blue city mayors and Blue State governors why is she surprised?

TooFab She should have been fired from her job! And arrested for animal abuse! She's foul!

TooFab It's open season on all of us. End the lockdown
