Don’t Ignore Race in Christopher Lane’s Murder

Article in Time magazine. I don't ever remember seeing this much matter-of-fact honesty in a national magazine about the national crisis of young black males and violence.

quote:

The numbers don’t lie: young black men do commit about 50% of the murders in the U.S. We don’t yet know whether the attack on Lane was racially motivated, nor can we know whether the three black boys who attacked a white boy on a Florida school bus recently would not have done the same to a black kid. (Critics took Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to task for not condemning the violence.) But hardly uncommon are cases such as the two black guys who doused a white 13-year-old with gasoline and lit him on fire, saying “You get what you deserve, white boy” (Kansas City, Mo.) or 20 black kids who beat up white Matthew Owens on his porch “for Trayvon” (Mobile, Ala.).

So, it’s just fake to pretend that the association of young black men with violence comes out of thin air. Young black men murder 14 times more than young white men. If the kinds of things I just mentioned were regularly done by whites, it’d be trumpeted as justification for being scared to death of them.

Jesus Christ. And whites are too pussified to even report or condemn it. and rightfully so. Even hinting that blacks are more prone to violence and an abundance of them usually equals a shitty city means you're racist- facts be damned.

It really is sickening how you can't make a logical and factual argument to some people without them immediately discrediting your reasoning by labeling you a racist or not "getting it" because you aren't submerged in "that culture." It's a fricking joke just how little accountability some of these liberals, activists, apologists and other morons in general display.

It is very sad. Blacks are failing in the USA the same way they have historically failed in Africa.

There has been a policy of the government and most of the media for the past 60 plus years to condition the public that there is no difference in groups and to think so is racist, but when difference is needed for policy diversity is somehow a plus.

We have generations that have heard nothing else.

Btw, fwiw the author is black. He's a professor at Columbia University. I noticed at the end of the article that Time magazine put this disclaimer: The views expressed are solely his (the author's) own.

quote:

And recent example illustrates how many blacks feel about who is murdering whom. Two weeks ago, an NYPD cop killed 14-year-old Shaaliver Douse. Douse was in the process of shooting other people, and had been charged with shooting someone else in May — and yet his aunt compared him to Martin. In her mind, the main sin was the white cop’s.

Granted, it seems a lot easier to do something about the Zimmermans than the black thugs. Protest profiling and police departments institute new programs. But black thugs aren’t moved by protests, so it can seem like we’re just stuck with them.

But who’s to say what would happen if black America exerted even half of the emotional fervor and brainpower it does over cases like Martin’s to thinking about how to keep black boys from going wrong? Annette John-Hall had some wise words on this last year. What kind of self-image do we have to assume we can only change others, but not ourselves?

For the time being, though, it’s time for the media to stop proudly emblazoning the race of white cops who kill black boys while cagily describing black teens as, say, “from the grittier part of town,” as has been the case regarding Lane’s killers. The media needs to be as honest with black people as we need to be with ourselves. No group gets ahead by turning away from its real problems.

And, as an added bonus, they do it with significantly more swag.

100% truth.

Even hinting that an area is high crime due to the high number of blacks gets you labeled as a "redneck" or "typical southerner", which are both terms with racial motives in and of themselves.

That is the "Ideas" section of Time...basically a "letter to the editor" type piece you'd see in the newspaper. That disclaimer is always on those.

Great point. I mean, as humans we will naturally categorize things.

Blacks are generally more athletic.
Asians are good at math.
Whites have historically built great societies.
etc. etc.

But pointing out the obvious is racism.

I have it on good authority that the media is not reporting this story.

Your link must be fake.

You honestly can't believe this is being reported as clear as it would be if the races were reversed. right?

Also, didn't our media say it was because the animals were "bored?" Yeah, that's not the real reason.

There is no counter argument, no excuse, no one to push blame on. It is reaching the tipping point where violence in the black community can no longer be ignored or blamed on institutional "racism."
