I usually don’t respond to such tripe; but since your sentiments are so universally believed, accepted, internalized and espoused by so very many white-right types (and not a few self-hating black people), check this out:

Black Americans have been so traumatized, so frustrated and barred and denied their very humanity, and for so long and so thoroughly, that it is no wonder or deep secret or “biological” or “genetic” explanation for what you, I’m sure, describe as “black-on-black” crime. Dr. Degruy (referenced in an above comment) calls this an aspect of PTSD — not the one you are undoubtedly familiar with, but Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome. I let her explain it to you.

As for “looting,” come on man…The greatest, longest, deepest, most violent, cruelest, most immoral “looters” on this planet for the last 500 years at least and counting has been the so-called “white” European male (and all his cousins) worldwide. Read Princeton Professor Nell Painter’s seminal, exhaustive study, “The History of White People.” Dr. Painter explains in exquisite detail, beginning with the highly regard Greeks how just about everything so-called “white” people have today was stolen from “people of color.”

I don’t like “whitesplaining,” okay? That means explain white people to white people. I think you already know “how the west was won,” but refuse to or deny those awful truths and realities. I also fully realize that I am wasting precious time and energy trying to “explain” this shit to somebody who simply does not want to hear it.

No need to respond, cause I’m done.
