When White America Experiences a Tragedy, I Really Don’t Give a Shit

When white America experiences a tragedy that directly affects their population, I’ll be honest…I really don’t give a shit.  Seriously I don’t.

When schools get shot up, terrorists blow shit up, lone wolf terrorists here in that States (white people) shoot up random shit where most of the victims are white…I really don’t give a damn.  Sure it sounds cold blooded & heartless, but isn’t this the exact same reaction white America has towards Black America?  Of course it is.  So why should I as a Black man in America be made to feel sorrow for a tragedy that has taken place outside of my community?  Why?  Exactly how is it affecting me?  To be more precise, how exactly does white on white crime or Islamic terrorist acts committed against white supremacy directly affect me or my community?  What changes?

Nothing.

When I lay down to go to sleep & wake up the next morning to proceed about my business, I’ll still be viewed as a Black man in America.  When I attempt to point out injustices committed by the dominant society against the Black community, I’ll continually be hit with the “what about Black on Black crime” deflection.  When I attempt to explain the meaning behind the phrase BLACK LIVES MATTER, I’ll face the ALL LIVES MATTER rebuttal from the dominant society.  When I attempt to point out the documented systemic problems that plague Black society going back as far as the beginning of American slavery that directly affect Black society in the present day, I’ll be met with the “Get over it!  Slavery was a long time ago!  Racism doesn’t exist!  Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!  We got a Black President!” rhetoric.  No matter what I do, say, or write to bring attention to the unique struggles that continually have a negative impact on Black society, white America will continue to ignore our issues & treat Black society like we are just making shit up.

So with that said, why should I honestly give a damn about shit that happens to white society?

Next time a school gets shot up, a terrorist blows some shit up, or a lone wolf terrorist shoots up random shit where most of the victims are white; the only responses I feel obligated to give are:

  1. Get over it!
  2. What about white on white crime?
  3. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!
  4. Black Lives Matter!

Seems fair to me.  What do you think white America?

  • @Onyx Truth…. you’re living in a White country and you don’t like White people?

      This has never been a white County fool!!!! All white people are illegal immigrants and neanderthals from the Caucasus Mountains. You stole this country from the indigenous Native Americans!

      • USA didn’t exist when the land mass called America was mainly occupied by nomadic tribes of Siberian descendant “American Indians”. You uneducated, brainwashed, “do-gooding” Jew puppet.

          The natives were called Americans first, when your idiot ancestors were dislocated British subjects! Alas! Native Americans. Like they said, this was never a white Country no matter what they called it, you idiotic immigrant! Your ancestors came from Siberia too! Where do you think the Wide spread European Ydna haplogroup R and mtdna U came from SIBERIA the home of your ancestors. Most Native Americans were sedentary Farmers who were more advance than those stupid Pilgrims of Plymouth and Jamestown , who would of Starved without the farming practices and welfare the Native Americans afforded them!

          This will always be Native America. Immigrant!!! Get the fuck outta theses non white continents, both north and South America !

    So, what do you expect us to do? Suck your dick to prove we’re not raysis?

    This article asks a valid question, “So why should I as a Black man in America be made to feel sorrow for a tragedy that has taken place outside of my community?”

    The thing is, you are not obligated to. Just like you state that whites don’t show any sort of emotion when tragedies happen in our communities, we should follow suit. Instead there are a large group of people who flock to white communities to “build” and “make better” when what we have is in shambles. Where they do that at?

  • Stephanie Monk

    I GENUINELY agree with you here.

    You don’t need my approval, of course.
    Just stating. You’re 115% correct.
