In a story that’s almost too bizarre to believe, the leader of the Black Lives Matter movement, DeRay McKesson, now thinks that the movie War for the Planet of the Apes is about him…seriously.
McKesson, the activist who was elevated to liberal fame after the Ferguson riots, took to Twitter to air his grievances over a blue vest seen on one of the characters in the movie. The makers of the film created a toy to go along with it, because marketing, yet old DeRay thinks that it was a racist and underhanded shot at him because he wears, get this, a blue vest.
In a now-deleted tweet, McKesson accused the film’s creators, and Hollywood as a whole, of being racist for “depicting black people as apes.”

“Given the history of rendering black people as apes, I’m offended and appalled by the lack of consciousness in Hollywood. #PlanetOfTheApes,” he wrote, while including images of the toy and the blockbuster hit’s poster ad.
Of course, no good race-baiting session is complete without fellow race-baiter, Tariq Nasheed, piling on the grievance train and expressing indignation over a film series that was created before either of these two idiots were born.

“Does the new Planet of the Apes poster have racially coded messages?Notice the #BlackLivesMatter symbolism.Notice the ape with the blue vest,” wrote Nasheed.
Not to defend this exercise in utter stupidity, but DeRay is always pictured wearing a signature blue vest, pretty much whenever you see him on TV or in print. However, one doesn’t own the trademark on blue vests, and it’s highly doubtful the creators of the movie were thinking about some low-level race-baiter as they plotted to make hundreds of millions of dollars off of a film.
Also, to be clear, the blue vest is a nod to the original Planet of the Apes, which saw multiple characters donning them as a part of their attire.
You're outraged because they're recreating the look of the original ape in 1968. You don't own wearing blue vests man. Grow up. pic.twitter.com/XF9b0DurVt

But that didn’t stop DeRay and Nasheed from feigning outrage over the wardrobe of completely fictional apes that can walk, talk, and wage war over our planet.
So basically, these two rejects are so wrapped up in their search for racism they’re willing to find it even in the most innocuous places, all to further the racial divide in our nation as a part of their anti-white agenda.
And they say Trump supporters are the problem?
