#SayHerName: What were we JUST talking about?

White Civilian Culpability in Black Assaults and Deaths

We'll start with Charlena Cooks.
It all started when police responded to a call from an unidentified White woman. The ACLU SoCal is responsible for obtaining the now public video. And from the beginning it was apparent that things were not going to end well — especially when the 1st person to tell their side of the story is a White woman with tears in her eyes.



...Moving on to the pool party where the cops were called because "too many black people" showed up.



See that cop going all WWE on that 14-year-old child? He's been put on paid vacay for his troubles.

    To be clear, white people saw this as an invasion, an onslaught from those of the wrong complexion. Who you gonna call? Why the brave and valiant men in blue of course. From the white cop’s perspective this could have been his own home, his niche: the local hub where he goes bowling with his neighbors, not throw them in jail. Obviously, this was personal, because the last bastion of resistance is after all white neighborhoods. Note how one article describes the 14 year-old child as a Woman. A distinction which made it all the more easier to abuse her. Much like the 12 year-old child gunned down by police in Cleveland, innocence is never afforded her (a particularity reserved solely for white children).

    Typically whites impose upon host cultures because they can, yet gerrymander unceasingly to keep their sacred hamlets Colorless. Colonialism, American Exceptionalism, Campaigns and Land Grabs: all are a matter of record.

    Langston Hughes wrote about searching for a place in the world where white shadows did not fall on spaces of color. Where the effectual- fervent reach of the white man failed to permeate. In turn, what we see happening socially is a Reversal of that trend. Pretty soon there won’t be a place (or House) where whites can go, or call their own. No place in the world where the brown shadows abate: where they themselves might escape the scrutiny of color. The white man’s chickens are coming home to roost, and with it his worst fears.

    1. Why don't they just move to one of those (nearly) all-white, middle-of-nowhere countries in Europe?

      I'm really starting to wonder that.

      Case in Point: What the world actually thinks about white Americans.

      Judging by the comments, White Americans don’t hold up to criticism well. For when you think of an American you're thinking of a White Person plain and simple. Sucks to be hated eh white people? They only have themselves to blame. Like I said, pretty soon there won’t be one place on this earth they can go without being despised.

    They don’t want these arrogant Yanks. White tourists have a habit of bringing their white privilege with them when aboard (Like expecting people in foreign lands to speak English). Contrary to popular belief, the World knows good and well what goes on within these borders despite America’s claims to the contrary. Europe has enough problems its own.
