Another angry rampage happened [recently] as a young white man walked into a black church in Charleston and sat down politely among members there to study the Bible. Out of nowhere, without notice, he fired away, killing nine there who had welcomed him into their discussion.
I’ve heard that the young man accused black men of raping “our women.” That was a familiar complaint. Another sniper said much the same in California a few years ago, but that killer was mad because women liked other men more than him.
White guys, I’m white. I’ll admit that I’m well above the age of the young white women you are trying to date, but don’t blame the black men. Women make choices on their own. I am pretty sure that more of us are raped by white men than black men. Don’t kill in our name, please.
I’m beginning to think that we have lots of immature white men out there who are insecure in their own sexuality, among other things. We all tend to scapegoat others when really we feel badly about ourselves. Often we will project onto the “other” the evil we try to keep buried within our own shadow.
Most of us in the USA are used to seeing the real power structure within the framework of the white man. This power was his birthright, unjustly so. Today many insecure men, influenced by a system that is racist, try to quell their insecurity by scapegoating people who are different in looks, gender, sexual orientation and race.
This must stop. Get over it, White Man! Women can make up their own minds regarding with whom they want to spend their time. Don’t go out and get yourself a gun so you can shoot a few folks you project to be the blame.
Grow up! Seek therapy for your insecurities. Your birthright has been expanded to include others. Welcome it!
