Why America hates and bullies black men

Why America hates and bullies black men

America hates black men. No matter if you're the most powerful man in the United States, President Obama, or an accused, not yet convicted, black suspect on the evening news--America hates you.

A black man can do no right in America. If President Obama put a piece of chewing gum in his mouth somebody would have something negative to say. And any black man that falls beneath the status of the president--God help you.

Coming to this realization that black men are hated in America is painful. Until my son found himself on the wrong end of the law, and under Joe Deters racist boot, I believed that it was, more often than not, the black man's fault when he fell face first into the criminal justice system and into America's hatred.

After all if you do the crime, you do the time. If you commit a crime and end up in jail or with a lengthy prison sentence, tough. And if you get out of jail or prison, only to discover that your real sentence has just begun because you are discriminated against in every way imaginable--employment, housing, education, denied the right to sit on a jury of your peers, tough. Think about that for a minute, Denied the right to sit on a jury of your peers. And the list of discriminations goes on forever.

But so what. Black men shouldn't sell drugs, rob people, kill people, make babies that they can’t pay for and get felonies for not paying child support, shouldn't get their license revoked for "riding dirty." I once had a friend tell me when I inquired about his drivers license, and this was his exact response, “FBK you know don’t no niggas got no L’s.” L’s being licenses. At the time I was in shock, but over the years I have discovered that there are a large percentage of black men that don’t have licenses for a variety of reasons. In some cases revoking one's license is justified, but making one jump over hell and high water to get them back is a form of hate.

Sometimes it's the black man's fault that he ends up in the criminal just-us system, but often times it's America's hate of black men that leads him there. It's also America's boot of hatred and bullying that makes it impossible for a black man to ever be totally free from the criminal justice system, also known as the black man's choke hold since one out of three young black men is currently under the control of the criminal just-us system.

Harsher laws and sentences exists for black men’s crime of choice. Yes, there are crimes that are associated with black people. And there are crimes associated with white people. If a black man had caused the housing melt down crisis, or the biggest spill in U.S. history and killed of species of wildlife, he would be hung. Hell, a black man was hung out to dry for fighting dogs.

Fact. The hate of the black man in America is so intense that they are discriminated against in every stage of the criminal justice process starting with initial stop and search, arrest and plea bargain and the sentencing phase.

Watching a local news station the other night I was bombarded with stories of one young black man after another, that were accused, not yet convicted, of some type of crime. Their stories where followed by a story about a white young soldier killed in the war and whose body was being brought home in a casket with a flag draped over it. He was a great American and a hero. He had served his country. That seems to be one message in the media. White men are patriotic and come from a military families that have made public service a legacy, black men come from broken homes, and are unpatriotic. That is a message of hate being sent out by some in the media.

Signing up and serving in the military no more makes you a great American than going inside a telephone booth makes you a telephone (do they still have telephone booths)? There are plenty of veterans that die and aren’t worth the flag that they are buried under.

Black men need to be given medals of honor for living in a country that hates them and makes them work for free. Anybody out there that truly believes that when slavery ended, black men and their families rode off into the sunset into the good life is a damn idiot. After slavery came Joe Deters and Fox news. And everything in between (Discrimination, Jim Crow, Mass incarceration).

Another way America bullies black men is with studies. Sure studies are sometimes needed. Or are they? They all seem to have the same results--bad news for the black man. For example all studies, most that I have seen, read: black men are less likely to be (you fill in the blank with anything positive) and more likely to be (you fill in the blank with anything negative). The black man can't catch a break.

There are a certain group of men that fall in the tolerated, and not pure hate, category. But those men are what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid allegedly referred too as light skinned with no negro dialect. Guess you could toss an any complexion, and keep No Negro Dialect.

Certainly all of America doesn’t hate black men, and of course more black men need to take responsibility for their actions. And certainly there are great people that have served this country, including great black men, and certainly some of America's hate directed toward black men is directed toward other groups and poor people.

But, and this is most important, America needs to stop hatin.

(there are some really good people in America, but the bad ones, the ones that hate, you know who you are)

White Man said...

I'm (name removed), a Caucasian Republican, and couldn't disagree with you more about the "know nothing", affirmative action Chicago Gangster, probably illegitimate, occupier of OUR White House, and destroying OUR (yours & mine) Country; in COMPLETE DISREGARD of the Comy bastard's skin Color, or extent of his loathsome character, for that mater. But, like you, sir; I am a victim of the prejudicial bigot, and corrupt J.T. Deters.

I know not, if J.T. Deters is a prejudiced racial bigot, as you allege. But, I do know, as well as any unbiased citizen who knows him, he is criminally prejudiced, as a Social Class Bigot, which puts you and me in the same Navy Gray Boat, my good man. My case is one of predatory prosecution, admittedly orchestrated, personally, by Deters, abusing Civil Statutes and Prosecutor's Office Personnel assignment to unprecedented duties, and I allege is provably in political favor to an associate of my Ex Wife's employer, the known corrupt, Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Over at least a year, Deters bullied my first defense attorney, until the point I had to force his withdrawal, the Appellate Court, after he was disqualified by the lower court, his appointed Special Prosecutor and my second Attorney, who pled me guilty in a civil litigation CYA scheme.

I believe my Case would command the action of the Disciplinary Branch of OUR Ohio Supreme Court, if I had prominent and dedicated Legal Assistance to present my case, through the Civilian submission system. I surmise these would likely be Democratic Partisans. While Deters utilized a Democratic Prosecuting Attorney, now Judge, initially; I doubt that Jody Luebbers could be considered in complicity.

If you are in contact with any capable and of want to bring bigot Deters to Justice, please let me know.
