Woman Says Black Men Kidnapped Her: She Really Went to Disney World
I just read this interesting article by Dr. Boyce Watkins. Now, I don't normally post away with things of the racial nature, but this one I couln't just leave unposted. The article is about a white woman who said that a black man had kidnapped her and her daughter, and all the while... they were just in Disney World sipping lemonade in the shade.
Here... read the article. It should make you all think for a moment.
So, WHY is it that black victims are underreacted to, and white victims are overreacted to? That is the true question my Shakespeare fans.
One of these days people in America will stop trying to push aside this issue of racism, because it very much so exists still. Just because we have a black President does not mean that racism doesn't exist. Too many people, including a large number of black folks have closed both eyes and their third eye blind to the painful existence of racism. It's still out there whether blatant or discreet.
Dr. Boyce Watkins compares this story to a good friend of his, but the truth of the matter is that nearly every black person can describe a similar story. My cousin was just killed almost two weeks ago in Flint, MI. Do you think his murderer was found yet? Of course not. So someone answer the question for me and Dr. Watkins. Why is that black victims are underreacted to, and white victims are overreacted to?
