WTF Is Wrong With White People?

Warning:  This post contains sensitive language, images, and videos.

WTF is wrong with these white people? Is this insecurity?  Or self-hate?  Or just dumb racist white people?  Notice these incidents occurred in fast food type places or malls except the one at Yale, my medical school alma mater.

Is this a planned attack on black people unfolding in plain sight?  An attack to imprison black people’s minds in fear, obedience, and submission to white people.

If I were white, I would be mortified instead most whites seem amused by these videos with many copycats whites waiting in the wing for their chance.

I know many whites will say: “Stop generalizing.” “It’s just a few uneducated white people; they are the exception. ”
However, the only exception I see is white people who feel shame or who care.

White people minimize these acts knowing racism is the very fabric of their culture.

I ask again, WTF is wrong with white people?  Truly can you tell me? If people of color started shooting white people on sight, don’t you think they would be justified in feeling threatened by whiteness?  The videos above are a sample of non-violent videos, the image below is white history.

Warning To POC: The Jim Crow Laws Of The North

***Warning To People Of Color***

Stumbled on a NYT opinion piece that discussed the selective enforcement of Quality of Life Laws.  Laws created to arrest POC in public places, such as Starbucks or even one’s backyard. They are called the new Jim Crow laws of the North.  However, these laws were always in the book and selectively enforced in the North.

The difference between the North and the South is a matter of nuanced versus overt racism.

Am I paranoid when I express concern about being profiled and followed by a cop while driving the back roads to my home? How about the dagger stares from white women I received while eating dinner?

First time in years, I felt the utter hate of white people. White women attempting to intimidate me with their hateful stares. The chef even got in on the hatred. I ordered a rare prime rib, my friend a medium rare. His was medium rare, mine overcooked and dry looked like leftovers. When I pointed out the prime rib was not rare the chef claimed my prime rib came from the end part as if that was my problem.

I caution people of color to be careful around white people. They have laws that can be used to selectively imprison  and even murder black people.  Not all whites are dangerous but please exercise caution as you cannot tell the good ones from the bad ones based on looks.

Last month in Philadelphia, a white Starbucks manager summoned police officers to confront a pair of African-American men after one asked to use the restroom before he had purchased a drink. About two weeks later, at Lake Merritt Park in Oakland, Calif., a white woman called police to report a black family that was grilling food for a picnic.

In both instances, the victims were accused of violating laws or rules governing conduct in commercial establishments and public spaces. In the first case, it was for trespassing or loitering. In the second, it was for using a charcoal grill outside of the designated areas.

“Quality of life” laws serve as a potent instrument of racial segregation. They provide commercial establishments, law enforcement officers and everyday citizens with tools enabling them to police racial boundaries while at the same time claiming to simply be upholding the law.

In contrast to the Jim Crow laws of America’s dark past, these laws supposedly apply to everyone. But in practice, they clearly don’t. Like most middle-aged white people, I have spent countless hours in Starbucks without buying anything. Plenty of white people have barbecued, blasted music and drunk alcohol at that same Oakland park, without anyone calling the police.

 

Take public beaches. In the South, white officials literally drew color lines in the sands and the waters off shore. In the “racially liberal” Northeast, towns devised elaborate, and ostensibly colorblind, procedures for determining who could access public shores, and what they could bring and do once inside, and then proceeded to enforce them for black and brown people only.

In the 1930s, Long Branch, N.J., passed an ordinance requiring all residents to apply for a pass that would allow access to only one of the town’s four public beaches. Town officials claimed the rule was meant to prevent overcrowding. Without exception, though, black applicants were assigned to the same beach and were denied entry to the others.

Winning

Whoever is winning at the moment will always seem to be invincible. -George Orwell

They always do until time works its magic through nature or exposure.

Now, big corporations’ powerful partnerships with government including the criminal system of LEOs, prosecutors and judges seem invincible, the ultimate organized crime ring.  Emboldened by a corrupt judicial system of bias, murderers are set free to commit more crimes while victims are defamed and blamed for their deaths using government-supported mainstream media.

Seems impossible to get justice when selling 50 cent cigarettes on a street corner or stealing a can of soda is justification for a death sentence.    In seconds without evidence, cops decide who lives and who dies without regard to human rights or guilt.

Corruption is the undisputed declared winner today.  Wall Street stock markets surging to new highs as more and more groups targeted for marginalization are gunned down by cops, the media and politicians. PoC, people with mental illnesses or developmental delays, the poor and the homeless are, in plain sight, discarded in graves or prisons, whichever more profitable.

How will those marginalized groups ever defeat such power?   Greed and corruption create a culture that is unsustainable. Time and solidarity are the underdogs’ friend. What do you say?

 

USA Charleston Terrorist, Dylann Roof, Attack Claim Nine Victims

Like America, he said, it was about freedom. “Freedom to worship … freedom to be all God intends you to be,” he said. “Sometimes you gotta make noise to do that.  – Rev Clementa Pinckney

USA  Charleston Terrorist, Dylann Roof, Attack Claim Nine Victims

Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston was the scene of a terror attack as a white gunman opened fire, killing nine people in the church, and sparing one woman  to spread the word of terror.

According to the Daily Mail, eight victims died at the scene and one in the hospital. A smart five year old girl pretended to be dead and luckily survived the attack.

The suspect (terrorist) is described as a clean-shaven, 21-year-old white male and is believed to be wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and Timberland boots.

Mother Emanuel, as Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church is called in the community, is the home to the oldest black congregation south of Baltimore.

The historical Black AME church is tied to the history of the American South since the early 1800s. From slave revolts to the civil rights movements to present day police brutality.

In 1969, civil rights activist Coretta Scott King, wife of Dr. King, led a protest to the church; 900 were arrested by the national guard.

In 1962 the civil rights leader, Reverend Martin Luther King, gave the famous speech to vote.

In 1909 even the legendary African-American leader Booker T Washington spoke there.

During the 1861-65 Civil War, it was a secret meeting place for many southern black organizers.

Mother Emanuel’s pastor, State Senator Clementa Pinckney, was among the victims of this hate crime / terrorist attack on black lives by white men.

Sen. Pinckney, 41, a married father of two, had actually counseled the family of Walter Scott. The reader will remember Mr. Scott was murdered by Officer Michael Slager (on April 4th) as he was pulled over for a missing tailgate light.

{Victims of the Charleston Terrorist Attack}

President Obama  stated he and his wife knew all the members of the Emanuel congregation well, including Sen. Pinckney.

For nearly an hour, Dylann Storm Roof (a 21 year old white male supremacist) was inside the AME church. Watching his victims before killing “six [black] females and three [black] males at a prayer meeting”, Police Chief Greg Mullen said. (6)

A childhood friend of Roof alerted the the FBI. Police found Dylann’s car in Shelby, North Carolina, where Roof was arrested without physical harm. It is unclear if he was armed at the time of his arrest.  However, the police did not fear or feel threatened. Compare with when they confront unarmed young black men.

Family and friends of the shooter had this to say:

“I don’t know what was going through his head,” Kozny said. “He was a really sweet kid. He was quiet. He only had a few friends.”

Roof, however, had been to jail: State court records show a pending felony drug case against him, plus a past misdemeanour trespassing charge. He also displayed a deliberately offensive Confederate flag on his license plate.

Traditional media downplayed this as a possible hate crime, instead of calling it what it is (a terror attack). Roof knew what he was doing and let one woman go to spread the word.

This case highlights the disparities in treatment of white versus black suspects. Two white suspects apprehended for the murdering of 9 people, were arrested without the use of excessive force. The cops did not fear for their lives.

If this had been a Catholic Church where a Muslim gunman murdered 9 white people, including a priest or congressman, this would be a called a terrorist attack without a doubt. Just look at the case of the Boston Marathon.

Hate Crime vs Terrorism

Are black people now forbidden to pray?
We are not allowed negativity or anger.
Where is the positive in being murdered while praying to God?

Self-harm is frowned upon because it deprives cops of income and target practice. Medical treatment is likely to be inferior and lead to more harm, as many black people already receive poor medical care.

Residents of Charleston, and black people all over the US, are living in fear of police officers and now any white male.

What can African-Americans do, as fear builds among the black community?

Why is this a hate crime, not a terrorist attack? Why was the Boston Marathon attack a terrorist attack and not a hate crime? Is the word terrorism reserved for those of Muslim heritage?

Didn’t the Holocaust start something like that?


Definitions:

“In both crime and law, hate crime (also known as bias-motivated crime) is a usually violent, prejudice motivated crime that occurs when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hate_crime

“Terrorism is commonly defined as violent acts (or the threat of violent acts) intended to create fear (terror), perpetrated for an economic,[1] religious, political, or ideological goal, and which deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (e.g., neutral military personnel or civilians). Another common definition sees terrorism as political, ideological or religious violence by non-state actors.”

“In the international community, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal-law definition.[5][6]”
