Ohio Business Owner Says His ‘White Lives Matter, Who Else Will Pay for Welfare’ Sign is Not Racist (Watch)

*The owner of a tire shop in Bethesda, Ohio has put a sign outside his door that has been labeled as racist, although he claims it wasn’t his intention.

“My sign states white lives matter, who else will pay for welfare. That is a question, not a statement, it doesn’t have a question mark at the end because I don’t have one to put there,” said Mike of Mike’s Tires, who also placed “Trump 2020” on the sign and defends the whole gesture as freedom of speech.

The president of the Belmont County chapter of the NAACP says the sign should be taken down as it promotes false information.

“We actually all pay for welfare recipients to receive their benefits,” said Belmont County NAACP President Jerry Moore. “When you just take facts out of thin air and put them on a billboard and call them facts, when they are your opinions, that becomes a problem.”

The business owner says the community is blowing it out of proportion.

“If you want to call it racist, you have that right, but I also have the right to put out on my sign, in my yard, what I want,” said Mike. “I’m not a racist person, I have black customers, black people deliver tires to me, I have nothing against them.”

Obama to Address Black Men Specifically in Tonight’s Drive-In Rally for Biden (Video)

*In Barack Obama’s scheduled drive-in rally tonight in Philadelphia, he’ll talk directly to Black voters — and Black men specifically — in an effort to earn their vote for his former vice president and current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The POWER Interfaith coalition, a Pennsylvania-based progressive group, conducted a poll this month, reported first by Politico, that found that 72 percent of Philly’s Black male voters under the age of 50 are backing Biden. Comparatively, 91 percent of Black voters above 50 years old in the same survey are supporting the Democratic nominee. Among the younger male voters, 14 percent are casting a ballot for Trump and 9 percent are undecided.

“I think they’re worried,” said Bishop Dwayne Royster, executive director of POWER Interfaith, of Biden’s campaign. “In the city of Philadelphia, the largest segment of the population is African American of any one group. And when African American males don’t show up, that could certainly be a problem.”

Meanwhile Obama released a video Tuesday evening that offered a preview of the rally, telling young people that they can create “a new normal” in American politics by going to vote.

“One of the most inspiring things about this year has been to see so many young Americans fired up, organizing, marching and fighting for change,” Mr. Obama said. “Your generation can be the one that creates a new normal in America. One that’s fairer, where the system treats everybody equally and gives everybody opportunity. We can come out of this moment stronger than before.”

Watch below or here on Twitter:

In the final 13 days of the election, Obama is expected to play a big role in Democratic campaigns up and down the ticket: He’s appearing in ads across the country for Democratic Senate candidates, including in Maine, Georgia and South Carolina. He and former first lady Michelle Obama also filmed digital spots for Biden, which appear on their Facebook pages, and he has helped raise enormous sums of money for Biden and Senate contenders.

Biden, who is debating President Trump in Nashville on Thursday, is not attending the Pennsylvania visit with Obama.

‘This Is Not Kneeling On A Neck’: Cop Shot During Breonna Taylor Raid Says It Was ‘Not a Race Thing’ (Watch)

*Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the officer who was shot in the leg while carrying out a search warrant at Breonna Taylor’s apartment, seems to think that because none of the officers knelt on her neck as in the George Floyd police killing, that race shouldn’t be a factor in their case.

Speaking out for the first time exclusively to ABC News and The Courier Journal in Louisville Tuesday, Mattingly said, “This is not relatable to George Floyd. This is nothing like that.”

Mattingly has been accused of raiding Taylor’s house under the guise of a narcotics investigation. The officers claimed that they were executing a late-night “no-knock'” warrant. Mattingly said he was shot at by Taylor’s boyfriend, after which the police opened fire which resulted in Taylor’s death.

None of the officers have been charged with the death of Taylor, and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is under fire from critics.

“It’s not a race thing like people want to try to make it to be. It’s not. This is a point where we were doing our job, we gave too much time when we go in, I get shot, we returned fire,” Mattingly said in the interview.

“This is not us going, hunting somebody down. This is not kneeling on a neck. It’s nothing like that.” he added.
