A social leftist snowflake in Seattle shares her mindthoughts on the issue of how white people should react to “The Televised Execution of Black People.” Here’s the TLDR version:
1. Liberals, artists, and LGBTQAWXYZ are the most racially enlightened beings in the universe.
2. People who don’t live in cities are dumb.
3. If you’re not wallowing in white guilt, seek out an urban liberal artist or gay person to teach you how.
4. Once you have learned how wrong it is to be white, share your wisdom with those unenlightened hicks from the suburbs and rural areas (but try to be patient, because, remember, they aren’t as enlightened as you.)
Nowhere does the most special of special snowflakes counsel, “When you see media coverage of a policeman shooting a black person, you should calm your t-ts and wait until you learn more about the facts and circumstances.”
Also, there’s this:
We tolerate the regular, televised execution of Black men in our streets because when it comes down to it, we don’t value their lives quite as highly as our own.
Oh, pumpkin, that’s not racism, that’s human nature. It’s normal to value one’s own life above the lives of strangers. My personal hierarchy of lives I care about goes: Immediate Family; Extended Family; Pets; Friends; Other People’s Pets; Stray Cats; Certain Porn Stars; the rest of the Human Race.
It isn’t that I don’t care about the rest of humanity *at all,* but I care much more about those whom I have bonded with than people I don’t know. However, that does not mean I “tolerate” injustice or violence against people I don’t know. It means I, rationally, recognize the limits of my ability to do anything about it.
