Bullied Michael Brown: Another Victim of White Racism


Another day, another saintly black child killed by a white racist.

Here's how the story looks from news media accounts:
  • Michael Brown, trying to get some candy on his way to church, was viciously assaulted by a store clerk who was at least half his size.
  • The clerk insisted that Brown pay for the candy even though his ancestors were slaves and he never benefited from white privilege.
  • Moments later, a psychopathic WHITE COP accosted Brown in the street for NO REASON except that he was black.
  • Brown dropped to his knees, put up his hands, and started singing church hymns about love and universal brotherhood.
  • The cop then murdered Brown in cold blood out of pure racist malevolence.
Eugene Robinson, a columnist for The Washington Post, put it best:
"We’ve been through this so many times. Brown, from all reports, was a good kid who had just graduated from high school and was about to enroll in college. But young black men are automatically assumed to be dangerous thugs — and are not given the benefit of the doubt that young white men are accorded. This is racist and wrong, and it must change."
