Re: Should Black People...

Yes, Black people should put white people's fears at ease. Instead of letting the poor white man suffer through an entire train ride, watching you and clutching his bag, just rob him blind as soon as you get on the train so you both can relax. Etc. None of us are easily separated from our misconceptions and stereotypes. If I spot a white man wearing dark clothing and a shaved head with tattoos on his body... he's a skinhead. If he doesn't attack me, he is a skinhead in a particularly...

Re: 2005 Lynching

I saw this article at another site. They got to talking about lynching, defining it and talking about how politicians have misappropriated it [Goolge: Clarence Thomas+High Tech Lynching]. Then they got to questioning how the SC law defines lynching as "any attack on a person by a group that causes injury" [paraphrasing]. They all gave reasons for the disconnect between the SC law and lynching's historic racial context; some even priased the law's "color-blindness." I would argue that the...

Great post Noah! We don't allow ourselves to see other black people as being "black like us" and vice versa.
