Ben Crump is not bringing his best. After scoring millions in cases during the heyday of BLM, he was reduced to badgering Sesame Street because a costumed character didn’t interact with a particular child.
(Remember that nonsense? It lasted for about a week before the media moved on to yelling at some poor cashier who asked a black woman for her ID.)
You can usually spot Ben Crump at press conferences, raising a fist next to Sharpton, or the family of whichever robber or drug dealer was the latest to die while struggling with a cop.
A list of Crump’s clients also often happens to be a map of race riots, hateful protests, and a nation divided by racist incitement. From Trayvon Martin to Michael Brown to George Floyd to Daunte Wright, Crump is on the ground, raising a fist, and vowing to fight until the check clears.
“This historic $27 million settlement is PROOF that Black lives will no longer be written off as trivial, unimportant, or unworthy of consequences,” Crump declared in March after the Floyd payout. Despite all those millions, Crump is still showing up to sue anyone he can..
Now he’s back. And desperate for attention.
Benjamin Crump is threatening to sue Gov. Ron DeSantis over his administration’s decision to reject an Advanced Placement course in African American studies, a move that comes as the organization responsible for administering the course signaled the program is getting a “new framework” ahead of its full release.
Crump led a rally Wednesday inside the Florida Capitol alongside Black Democratic state lawmakers to underscore what they say is Florida attempting to whitewash history, promising to file a lawsuit if students are banned from taking the course.
The only whitewashing here involves defending a course that includes BLM, domestic terrorist Angela Davis and one of the most racist poets on the planet.
“I got the extermination blues, jew-boys. I got the Hitler syndrome figured… So come for the rent, jewboys, or come ask me for a book, or sit in the courts handing down your judgements still I got something for you, gonna give it to my brothers, so they’ll know what your whole story is, then one day, jewboys, we all, even my wig wearing mother gonna put it on you all at once.”
“Atheist jews double crossers stole our secrets crossed the white desert to spill them,” Baraka ranted. “The fag’s death they gave us on a cross… they give us to worship a dead jew and not ourselves.” “The empty jew betrays us, as he does hanging stupidly from a cross, in an oven, the pantomime of our torture, so clearly, cinemascope the jews do it… the little arty bastards talking arithmetic they sucked from the arab’s head. Suck your pricks. The best is yet to come. On how we beat you and killed you.”
“We are all beautiful (except white people, they are full of, and made of shit),” Amiri Baraka wrote. “Come up, black dada / nihilismus. Rape the white girls. Rape / their fathers. Cut the mothers’ throats,” he wrote.
I’d like to see that lawsuit. But Crump isn’t actually serious.
“If the governor allows the College Board to present AP African American studies in classrooms across the state of Florida, then we will feel no need to file this historic lawsuit,” Crump told reporters at the Capitol. “However, if he rejects the free flow of ideas and suppresses African American studies, then we’re prepared to take this controversy all the way to the United States Supreme Court.”
The Supreme Court can’t wait. But Crump has as much as announced that if some sort of AP Black Studies course goes forward, he won’t sue. DeSantis has been pretty clear that it will go forward, but without the critical race theory, sexual materials or other violations of the Stop Woke Act.
Maybe he can go back to badgering Sesame Street.
