This is a catch all thread for discussions on racism, both systemic and individual; since one does not seem to already exist.
Michael Harriot’s take on the attack:
The saga of Cop City continues here in the ATL…
The King Center has weighed in, and calls for a vote on it… You’d think the KING center would hold sway in the halls of power in Atlanta!
Definitely not the outcome I expected.
Saw that one earlier today; it was that vid which led me to post the story here.
SSDD; I knew it as soon as I heard the location and the race of the assailants.
Oh yeah… These scum really feel empowered lately… I wonder why… /s
There needs to be a lot more consequences like this for public displays of racist BS. Might get these racists eager to fly their racists flag to STFU and hide their racist views again.
Immediate negative\painful reinforcement does tend to have that effect on bigoted cowards.
I think it’s weirdly a major animating feature of the racist mindset… I think they know how shitty things have been for Black Americans (and others) for all of American history. They know… Their greatest fear is that Black Americans are just out for revenge… They just can’t imagine that not every other human is as driven by cruelty and bigotry like they are…
TP - therapeutic pain.
