In What Bizarro World is this Portrayal of Race Relations Accurate?

This Might Be the Most Offensive Portrayal of Race Relations That You’ll Ever See

A Facebook friend of mine just set the above image as his profile cover photo. He’s an activist in the Black Lives Matter movement whom I became acquainted with while working on an election issue in my state.

I look at this picture, and the first thing I think is: Wow. That’s… that’s really offensive.

Then I look at it some more. I think about it. Then I realize that for some people, like my Facebook friend, this accurately represents how they perceive the world in which they live.

We can criticize that. We can tell them that they are wrong to view the world that way. We can insist that things aren’t as bad as an image like this makes them out to be. And we may be right. But maybe we should stop and consider how terrifying life has to get for this to become your perception.

What do we do with that? How can we have anything approaching a productive conversation about race relations and criminal justice issues when starting from such divergent perceptions of the status quo?

~~~~~~~~~~

Where do I begin? “We may be right”? “Divergent perceptions?”

Forgive me, but those divergent perceptions aren’t exactly based on equally valid evidence. Giving an intentionally skewed (and false) perspective equal weight with an accurate and true body of evidence not only isn’t fair, but starts any discussion off under an immense handicap. Honest and objective hard evidence proves beyond any doubt that the situation depicted in the picture is not only uncommon, but almost nonexistent. Why then, should we begin discussions from that assumption? It makes no sense. The picture is specifically designed to teach blacks to fear and hate police – there is no other way to interpret it.

It’s exactly this depiction of “so-called real life” that influences young blacks to distrust the police. In what way does this image attempt to impart anything positive to anyone? It is intentionally misrepresenting the police as not only Klan members, but the hooded policeman (with finger on the trigger) is pointing an evil black Glock at the forehead of an innocent child. And not even a belligerent rebellious teenager, but a sweet young child offering candy to the evil oppressive ogre who represents racism at its worst.

This is truly offensive – in fact, offensive doesn’t do it justice. Repugnant is perhaps a better description.

If this depiction is truly representative of what the “Black Lives Matter” activists are exposing young people to, it should be considered as an incitement to violence and denounced in the harshest possible terms – it is not doing anyone any favors, least of all young blacks.

    It’s hard to wrap one’s head around a disturbing image like this and the message that it conveys. It is intended to incite racial unrest and rancor for political gains. If so-called black leaders were actually working to help their community instead of grandstanding and lining their own wallets then there would be a universal condemnation of this and other similar images.

    In 2014, SIX THOUSAND black men women and children were KILLED by other blacks. Where is the outrage over this? Crickets from the race-baiters, so-called black leaders, the media, and worst of all elected officials. It doesn’t play into their political agenda whereas they need to sell racial division because they have nothing else to sell. Black leadership in this country has been a monumental failure.

    Let’s face it… the reason for the high police presence in urban areas is because the residents there demand it due to the high crime rate. If the police were pulled back then the crime would be off the charts and the police would be further vilified.

    The only way anything gets fixed is if blacks universally practiced introspection and we know that won’t happen based on history. MLK is flipping in his grave knowing that any gains made during the Civil Rights movement have been frittered away by greedy bastards that unjustly cling to his legacy.

    This basically just puts another log on the fire that was nearly out before O came along and stirred it. People will believe this before they’ll believe the truth.

    Pictures are worth a thousand words. In this case these people who should be helping are actually destroying all the efforts of the thousands of Blacks who have over the years made headway in a world of prejudice. These people are encouraging exactly what those who plan to take over our country want to happen, namely martial law and a communist-ruled government where all the freebies dry up and punishment is foremost.Think you idiots First before you put a picture or word out. Who are you helping? It surely isn’t the cause of MLK freedom.

    I find this picture obscene. It’s worse than porn, because, at least porn pretends to show people enjoying themselves. This picture presents one person (white) (authority) (threatening) as evil and the other (black) (hoodie) as innocent child.

    It’s a sick world. Too bad they don’t portray the opposite side of the coin, with the black thug beating an old white person within an inch of their lives, “jus cuz we wuz bawd”. Can you imagine the wailing THAT would bring from the lunatic left ?
