Once again, the American Media Maggots sitting in Leftist judgment of an incident prior to the facts coming in.
Time.com now says that the Ferguson shooting was an “atrocity.”
Atrocity: noun. 1. an extremely wicked or cruel act, typically involving physical violence or injury, as in “war atrocities.”
The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race
by Kareen Abdul-Jabbar
Ferguson is not just about systemic racism — it’s about class warfare, and how America’s poor are held back.
Will the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century?
A brief insertion here. My wife happens to have a home in Ghetto Central, in a large city in Fornicalia. She has had it for many years and could not move. I am the only Caucasoid in the area for quite some distance, because I love her and married her. The people here come and go. Most if not all of the homes here are rentals. I know that because when one family or concentration of people leaves, the FOR RENT sign goes up.
The people who come in have cars, motorcycles, cell phones, audio equipment, boats, trailers, pets, and few jobs apparently. I see some of the women leaving on a daily basis, but few if any of the men. The thin dude in the hoodie four doors down slings dope. Why is the area considered poor? Because both the city and the county say it is, and the nation says it is.
This is an area to be avoided. Cars scream past on the street and you don’t want to be here on either New Year’s or the 4th of July when the gunfire doesn’t stop for hours like downtown Beirut and the dogs cower under the bed and howl. The nights are mixed with distant gunfire, the sound of cop helos flying overhead and sirens exhibiting the Doppler Effect.
Jabbar continues with his article:
And, unless we want the Ferguson atrocity to also be swallowed and become nothing more than an intestinal irritant to history, we have to address the situation not just as another act of systemic racism, but as what else it is: class warfare.
Yes, says Jabbar, Ferguson is an atrocity, right up there with war.
For Leftists who swear they abhor labels, thanks for the label, sir.
A lot of black cops work for me and have worked for me and with me. So do a bunch of Vietnamese cops, Japanese cops, Mexican cops and most recently, Laotian cops. I have a dude whose last name I can barely pronounce. I call him “Dr O” and he digs it.
But if so terribly oppressed and tread-upon, just how is it that the black cops who work for me have succeeded because — after all — I have the ability to utilize the Progressive Discipline toolkit when their behavior needs modification? If “their” performance — like anyone else on the department — is inferior, I have the ability to instigate various forms of investigations ranging from friendly reminders right up to termination.
That said, I see the actual display of “poverty” every day: on duty at work, from my department’s vehicles and in its jails — and off duty at home in my wife’s neighborhood. I don’t just write cavalierly about it, I experience it every damned day I work. I live in it.
So for all of you people who write about poverty from a nice and comfortable distance, and have no idea what it really entails in America, how it actually exists, and what those occupants in “poor” neighborhoods really do or don’t do, what they have and don’t have, how they work or don’t work — why don’t you just take a nice, big steaming cup of Shut The Fuck Up.
