About two years ago, my wife and I were in the garage and we heard a big bang against the garage door. We quickly went outside and saw a group of black kids walking down the street. Now, normally the race of the kids wouldn’t even have crossed my mind, but it becomes relevant in a few minutes.
My wife yelled over to them, did one of you throw something at our house? They all said no, but then she told them, “we have security cameras, we’re going to find out if you’re lying to us”, at which point one of the kids said that he’d kicked a rock and it “accidentally” hit the garage door. My wife told him, “you should have just said that from the beginning, if it was an accident, just please be more careful”. They went on their way.
So then, we went back and checked the cameras…the kid clearly picked up a rock from the ground and threw it at the house.
Well, they had apparently just been going to the 7-11 on the corner, had done their business and were on their way back in the other direction heading home at about that time. My wife went back out and confronted them again. She told the kid that we had him on video throwing the rock directly at our house, not kicking it. She said something like “we live here, this is our home. How would you feel if I came by your place and threw rocks at your home?” The kid apologized and said he wasn’t trying to hit the house, he was just playing around and threw the rock harder than he intended to. She was in the process of telling him, basically, that’s OK, everyone makes mistakes, just please be more careful and be respectful of other people’s property etc etc etc when one of the other kids in the group yelled out something like “why you gotta pick on the black kids? Are you a racist?”. I have to admit that I’m impressed that she didn’t throttle the kid right then and there, but that’s black privilege right there.
You can’t chastise, argue with, correct, heck even disagree with a black person without being accused of being a racist. Cops can’t even arrest a long-time black criminal without being called racists and G-d forbid one of them get hurt or die while resisting arrest or the cops performing the lawful arrest will be charged and put on trial for it.
If you deny that you are a racist, it proves you are a racist. Blacks can do no wrong and cannot be criticized…oh…unless they’re conservative blacks, then all bets are off, they can be called every name in the book.
That was my convoluted way of introducing this incident:
So, backstory as I hear it: twenty something black “kid” in the neighborhood has been known to cause problems, has a criminal record and has been accused by one of the neighbors of assaulting their daughter, and he’s at that neighbor’s house banging on the door and wont’ go away. The neighbor enlists the assistance of an Army drill instructor who happens to live nearby. Drill instructor tries to get the problem “kid” to leave and that’s where the video picks up.
Of course, we miss the beginning so we have no context, we only see the white guy trying to get the black “kid” to leave the neighborhood. I hear no racial overtones at all in the video but since it’s a white guy against a black “kid”, it’s automatically racist. The Army, the City, the Sheriff, everyone in a position of authority automatically, reflexively and without a moment’s hesitation throws the white guy under the bus. He’s been relieved of duty and will probably lose his job and his pension. He’ll already been charged with assault and will be given the maximum sentence. He’ll be “canceled” from social media if he hasn’t already and he’s been doxxed so the “mostly peaceful” demonstrations have already started in his front yard. He and his family are in danger.
All because he had the audacity of trying to help out his neighbor and neighborhood by getting a problem out of the area.
Black privilege is real and it will ruin your life if you let it. My advice: Keep your head down and don’t get involved. Defend your family and your property and leave everyone else to fend for themselves.
That’s not how I grew up and I hate it, but that’s what our society has devolved into.
