Letter from another reader who believes that observing racial violence is the same as causing racial violence.
This will be the last email that I send.
I am so disappointed that a white person, who has a strong voice and following is doing nothing but stirring up the pot of hatred.The last email that I sent to you asked you if you thought that you were helping the issue of violence or causing more harm.I received your answer and hoped that it would be more than just a comment of, I am the fireman and not the arsonist.
How so? Every article that you place on your website is generalizing black people as mob attackers and criminals.
This doesn’t help the issue of violence because many of your followers are already afraid or prejudice against us anyway. You think that you are helping to bring awareness to an issue by complaing that the plauge of viloence agains white America is not getting enough recognition in the media.
I have a question sir, how long did we have to deal with the plauge of violence against us, and I am not talking about the civil rights movements that received media air time. I am talking about the race wars that I experienced in high school in 1998 in Wisconsin!
I am talking about the nights I was pulled over by an officer who asked me what was I doing in a certain neighborhood. That did not get any air time either. Am I walking around bitter at staking claims that all white people are corrupt and prejudice, no.
You are painting a picture that is going to cause some people to act out of unnecessary fear and anger. You say you are not the arsonist but I see you holding the match. Would you be having this same affection to your movement if it were white on black violence, or asian on indian violence probably not because your problem is with black people period.
Sir, you fit the mold of those same prejudice people I had to protect myself from in high school. I thought you made good points and were enlightened but I see you have just joined the lowest class race of people on this planet, the ignorant.
I hope that a black man helps you the next time you have a flat tire lol. Maybe that will ease your tension.
