    One public perception that seeks to exterminate the Black boys.

    "Children in most societies are considered to be in a distinct group with characteristics such as innocence and the need for protection," study author Phillip Atiba Goff of UCLA told the American Psychological Association. "Our research found that black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions at an age when white boys still benefit from the assumption that children are essentially innocent."

    "While this study is new territory for psychologists, it is just the latest in a string of evidence that shows how black people are perceived differently in the public eye. During the murder trial of George Zimmerman last summer, Jason Silverstein wrote a piece for Slate emphasizing a percieved racial empathy gap in America. He cited research showing that people who watched others undergo a painful experience felt that pain more acutely themselves when the victim was white rather than black. It's not that black people's pain gets disregarded by others, he points out, "The problem is that the pain isn't even felt."'

    Is it really about race? You bet ya.

    This all speaks to the objectification of Black people and the continuation in American society as a permanent fixture. To even quote cold statistics is a form of objectification.

    "The meaning of ‘thug’

    The word "thug," as Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman pointed out recently, has become "an accepted way of calling somebody the N-word." In Michael Dunn's letters from jail, so racist they banish any doubts the murder was racially motivated, Dunn stated, "This jail is full of blacks[sic] and they all act like thugs...This may sound a bit radical but if more people would arm themselves and kill these **** idiots when they're threatening you, eventually they may take the hint and change their behavior."

    "Today, a Black man is killed every 28 hours in the United States by police or vigilantes, according to a recent study conducted by Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. And most of these Black men will not receive justice, for the systemic and institutional racism inflicting our society does not stop at the courthouse gates. On the contrary, the criminal-justice system works overtime to disadvantage and disenfranchise Black people."

    You got that right. So when white people point out that Black on Black violence is a major issue in the Black community, what they are really saying is the right they feel to actively perpetuate continual genocide against Black people because we are thugs and criminals with no right to live in the first place. It's interesting that alot of the murders committed by white folks is against Black folks but we are the thugs.

    Not only is black people's pain not felt by non-blacks, even blacks are desensitized to our people's pain.

    Reminds me of a routine by the late great Moms Mabley (told not as well, but you get the message ...lol):

    Black inmate and white inmate, both with death sentences, await the hangman in their jail cells. White inmate breaks down sobbing. Black inmate looks at white inmate, crying his eyes out, and snaps: "Stop that crying! Be a man! Take your punishment like a man!!"

    White inmate looks up at black inmate and sniffs: "Yeah, fine for you. You're used to it!"

    Now look at this video which almost echoes Moms Mabley and corroborates the quoted passage:




    .While I smirked at the worthless whites who fail, and fail miserably, under Equal Opportunity, stopped laughing at 4:18. (smh)

    The thread was moved to the Black Men's section from the Open Forum where I originally started it at. Np but I believe this has relevancy for Black folks in general and not just Black men. It highlights how we are viewed and treated as a people because if Black males are seen this way, Black females are not too far behind and we have seen the treatment our women get as well.

    So true black children are punished more and never given a break but we do it to them to always claiming a child needs to be disciplined when he misbehaves. Maybe he just need to know everyone is not out to get him and that its not just him and his mother against the world
