Race relations

The Ferguson Fracas has not helped in promoting sympathy for the minority. The administration has had to backtrack from his promotion of violence that has escalated out of a false story used to foment unrest. As one said, it was rather unnerving to see the President talking about ‘understanding’ the need for protest while the split screen news showed black thugs and rioters gleefully hauling booty out of a liquor store.

The problems in the black family are also being put on parade. M. Catharine Evans describes Michael Brown Parents’ Bad Influence Plays Out on the National Stage

“As bad as Sybrina Fulton’s neglect and financial exploitation of little angel Trayvon Martin was, Lesley McSpadden’s profanity-laced rant after the grand jury decided not to indict Officer Wilson makes Fulton look like Mother of the Year.

Take a listen to Mama McSpadden and Michael Brown’s convicted felon stepdad, Louis Head. Yes, the same pair, along with twenty others who allegedly tried to crack a few skulls after they caught granny and a cousin selling Michael Brown merchandise in Ferguson a month ago.”

“These poor excuses for parents are as much to blame for Michael’s death as Michael himself, so why isn’t the media blaming them instead of the cops? Maybe we’ll all worry about police accountability when issues of accountability are resolved with respect to the sperm donors and baby mamas raising or not raising these scourges of society.

Holding these two accountable won’t be easy. After the McSpadden-Head video went viral, McSpadden’s lawyer, Benjamin Crump, tried to quell the criticism. Crump suggested that McSpadden and Head were overcome with “raw emotion.””

As for the media, headlines still list it as cop vs ‘unarmed teenager’ rather than 300 lb 18 year old caught on video abusing a store clear bullrushing a cop.

The awakening is noted by Colin Flaherty who says Black Mob Violence Now a Sickness

“And no one is sicker than the reporters who ignore, condone, excuse, and even encourage it, as we learned from the latest riot.

For reporters, Mike Brown has always been a moving target: At first the Gentle Giant was cut down for no reason whatsoever. Reporters ate it up and black mob violence followed.

When that fairy tale evaporated, they replaced it — with ease.”

“I learned from a black reporter that because the district attorney of St. Louis took 25 minutes to explain the grand jury decision that was proof positive the cop should have gone to trial. And reason enough to riot.”

“I learned the rioters did not like the tone of the District Attorney’s remarks. And that is why they did it.”

I learned black mob violence is “understandable,” or so quoth the President of the United States.

“Megyn Kellly — the devotee of the damages of white privilege — agreed with a black guest who said the rioters threw molotov cocktails because St. Michael was left in the street for four and half hours.”

“a former Republican White House staffer said it was all about police-community relations. Roughly translated that means too many black people were breaking the law. And too many white cops were catching them.”

“I learned that cops in riot gear cause riots.”

“I learned that black mob violence is no big deal because white people do it too.”

“No one mentioned Louisville, and how last Spring 200 black people rampaged through that downtown, beating grandparents in front of their grandkids, destroying property, stealing, looting, and creating mayhem.”

“PBS was kind enough to report that all of that black mob violence was the result of “white racism.””

“Violent crime in America is a black thing. Like the T-Shirt says, I don’t understand it. But this I do know: as bad as black crime rates appear to be (compared with non-black rates) in reality they are even worse.

And here are four reasons why: stitches for snitches, witness tampering, Bronx juries, cutting arrests in half, for starters.”

The list of behaviors should be stimulating research papers in psychology and social studies as it fits a pattern of known illness. Denial runs deep. It is not healthy, either for its victims or its observers.
