[QUOTE]Ultimately, I think it's a stretch to extrapolate schoolyard brawls onto the rest of society - white or black. The only difference here is that it was caught on camera. This is more about bullying and intimidation than either race or drugs, IMO. And I would say the same if the racial profiles were reversed.
Completely agree, but you're also completely missing the point.
The point is that the only violence that is extrapolated into a societal issue is "white on black" violence and the only reason for that is because of professional race baiters. The point of pointing out "black on black" and "black on white" violence is to show the absolute hypocrisy of these professional race baiters and their supporters in the media and the political class.
Think for yourself, question authority.
So, the "professional race baiters" are the sole reason why race relations happen to be strained in this country...?? Really?!! (as opposed to the "professional racists", of course)
That leaves out a huge chunk of history which is prologue to now.
There is no time in American history (or world history for that matter) lacking for racial animosity - none - despite the fact that minorities in this country hold more power and respect now than at any other time before.
So, tell me why you think this is not just a product of the media's massive distortion of a heretofore existing, underlying problem that fails to connect the real story with the overall narrative.
"So, the "professional race baiters" are the sole reason why race relations happen to be strained in this country...??"
I don't believe that was what he was trying to say. At least I didn't take it that way.
"...the only violence that is extrapolated into a societal issue is "white on black" violence and the only reason for that is because of professional race baiters. "
Which way did you take it?
(Leaving aside for a minute the notion that ALL violence is necessarily "extrapolated into a societal issue" regardless of race. Which is not to mean that schoolyard violence is always equivalent to adult violence.)
