A New Card Enters the Deck

Since the Race Card thrown down by blacks and white liberals is dogeared and worn out these days, it was only a matter of time before some enterprising race hustler came up with a new trump:

Enter the Violence Card.

Here’s how it works. When confronted with an instance of racially charged violence against a black person, a commentator draws attention to the fact that there is much more black-on-black violence than white-on-black violence. To play the violence card — as many criminal-justice advocates have done since the Rodney King police brutality case of the early 1990s — is to suggest that black people should worry more about the harm they do to themselves and less about how victimized they are by others.

In other words, pointing out black violence makes you a racist.

Yeah, that's about what the "progressives" believe; Giaia forbid holding guilty parties responseable for thier violent actions, and if one of them meets misfortune through a catastrofic failure of the victem selection process, it's the fault of society, and makes revenge attacks excusible by the statists in govt. and academe. When I see Sharpton and Jackson leading a march against gang-bangers in the inner cities, it'll snow in Alabama in august. JohninMd(help)
