Letter from Jackson Mississippi
Sometimes I can be a little dense.
It just occurred to me what “Please sir, I want some more”, represents.
The headmaster represents the “black kids causing the violence” and the kid represents “white society”.
Society is saying after a violent incident, to the black community, “Please sir, I want some more.”
So, after all the violence and mayhem caused by out of control black mobs, whites want more. Even the “out of control” blacks are astonished. “What!”
Back in the early 1980s, one of my relatives, a middle age woman, was a bank manager in Mississippi, out of Jackson.
A black guy in a minimum security prison walked away from a work detail. He got himself a gun and robbed the bank where my cousin worked. Took her hostage and drug her out to the parking lot.
He shot her and left her for dead. She spent the last about 10 years of her life in a wheelchair, a paraplegic.
Her daughter was left to care for her.
I remember seeing it on the national news at the time. They caught the guy, but I don’t know what happened to him.
