I see what you're saying but nowhere in the story do they mention the race of those arrested. Maybe I'm missing the video a.ssociated with the story but it seems like you're a.ssuming they were black because it was in Brooklyn.


You right.

I was just responding to the racial impactions that were addressed earlier in the thread.

There was a video that was circulating around the news circuit of a black people looting and when the reporter asked why the black guy responded

"They been ripping us off for years with their prices"

Even if these were the only minorities looting and there were 90% white looters, the black looters would be the only ones that would get the media attention.

It sucks that it works that way. But we already know this. So I just don't think its smart for us as minorities to play into the medias hands. Just let it be all white folks.

Honestly (and this is gonna sound fu*ked up)

But if black folks wanna stop being at the epicenter of these stories, we gotta do better than this.

I know for a fact that there are probably more white people stealing and looting (statistically). But, we already know as black folks that the media is gonna do whatever it takes to demonize us. So instead of reinforcing stereotypes, we should be trying to do better.

Its already known that if white folks get caught looting, its going to be made out to be an "isolated incident of necessity". And if its black folks its presented as "look at those animals". We're not held to an equal standard as white folks. Thats common knowledge.

So with that being KNOWN. Why do we as a people continue to play right into their hands? Don't make sense.

Then on top of that n*ggas is stealing electronics and bullsh*t, instead of things they gon need to survive. So there's no way to even spin it positively.
