Salon: ‘White Thugs Killing Black Teens’ – Time for Violent Response?

avatar

Declaring that “Florida cannot defend black life against white fear,” Brittney Cooper, a liberal, race-baiting, African American writer for Salon.com, has made the not-so-subtle suggestion that perhaps it’s time for black folks to react with violence when a court of law doesn’t rule to their satisfaction.

Based on the epidemic of media-ignored black-on-white “knockout game” attacks nationwide, it would seem that Brittney’s readers may be listening.

She rhetorically asks:

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take?

Citing not a single source – and while assuring us that she is a “deep believer in and practitioner of nonviolence” – Cooper nevertheless goes on (tell us where we’re wrong) to suggest that violence against whitey may be the only way “to defend black life against an onslaught of white murder.” Say what?

Asks Cooper:

[I]n the face of unreasonable violence toward our children, why do black people owe the nation the safety of our reasonable, rational, nonviolent responses?

Why, Brittney? Well, because both the law and good citizenship demand it for starters.

Then this doozy:

I think we can safely and fairly assume that it is open season on black teenagers. …

Open season, perhaps, Ms. Cooper, but check your numbers. The evidence is indisputable. White-on-black murders of teenagers are few and far between and, when they do tragically occur, they are instant front page news. On the other hand, black teens killing black teens is at epidemic levels in the U.S., and liberal rags like Salon.com turn a blind eye because it doesn’t fit your “progressive,” race-baiting narrative.

Cooper piles it higher and deeper:

But what I see is black students their age being murdered unceremoniously in locales throughout the country, by white or non-black men, who receive insufficient justice for their crimes. …

Black being is the problem. Not black thuggery. Black boys officially exist in a state of social death, because the law continues to tell us that their lives, when taken by white men, are legally indefensible.

Hyperbole much? Ms. Cooper then closes with this utterly inane, incendiary, untrue and offensive tripe:

They [black teens] have been rendered by the law dead men walking. It’s no wonder then that in so many places they act like it.  White thuggery, meanwhile, marches on, mowing down black folks at every turn, white sheets, sight unseen.

Shame on you, Ms. Cooper.
