White Girls Killed and Blacks Say NOTHING - Another case of Black Hypocrisy?

"More than half of the nation's annual homicides of about 15,000 are committed by black men. Not only is a black man much more likely to commit a homicide, but he is much more likely to die by homicide. And the killer is likely -- almost certain, in fact -- to be another black man."

It is apparent the black man has a deadly issue with hating himself. However, the recent murders of America’s southern debutantes, Eve Carson and Lauren Burk, may indicate that black men are well on their way to finally repudiating their salient allegiance to white folk. The allegiance I am speaking of is connected to the way murderous black men have valued a white life over a black life for the past 200 years.

Typically, if a white person is killed by a black person we can expect that darkie to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This is the way our judicial system functions, and not too many people have questioned it. Including black people. Inconsequently, for years now I have wondered why there is some sort of soul immunization among black people when a black person murders another black person. It is like we expect it. A routine occurrence that black people read about in an urban city’s newspaper Metro section without the slightest of concern. I believe I am even safe in saying that whiteys are unalarmed too. It’s just another dead nigger. Right?

Carson and Burk were beautiful white girls. They were everyday white chicks who more than likely did not associate much with black people. Their encounters with a few black folk were probably horrible memories that they wanted to forget. Like the countless young adult memories I have related to white men: uncomfortable, scary, feelings of insecurity and ignorance. Lacking some level of knowledge probably did not play a role in the brutal killings of Eve and Lauren. They were well aware that black men are dangerous. They saw how explosively volatile we are on television. No doubt! They may have also been reminded by momma and daddy to ‘stay away from those animals’. This would not surprise me because in most cases when watching the junk tube black men are portrayed as ruthless, stone cold, tough, and/or non-caring mammals. Or, perhaps as cross dressing buffoons - thanks to Mr. Tyler Perry.

While we are thought of as criminals before we go to jail and punks when viewing so called black movies, I wonder when the mindset shifts to one of complete black self-hatred to hating white people too? Literally hating them. I can perfectly understand why we grow to detest ourselves if we constantly bombard our psyche with images of those 50 Cent types – but how have we gotten to this place of empathetically hating white people? Our view of them has always been one of superiority: Yes ‘um Boss - and envy. Right? Haven’t we been trying to be Eurocentric? (Yes, you have. Stop lying! You know staying African was not an option).

Has our hatred spilled over? Perhaps, some of us now understand that white people can be hated too: The hating of ourselves can be extended to John and Cindy. Some black people, those wearing grossly oversize jeans and baseball caps with the price tag dangling, don’t have to hide how much they hate them anymore. We, decent acting black people, don’t have to keep the hatred behind barber shop doors any longer. It’s actually okay and evidently ‘cool’ to let the world know by killing innocent white people. Eve Carson and Lauren Burk are some of the first causalities of this new (or is it improved) hatred. They were gunned down while attempting to obtain something most black women are trying to acquire: a college education; while countless black men are roaming the streets searching for white and black prey.

If I was white I would be scared as HELL. These new type of Negroes don’t care about themselves at all and they APPERANTLY don’t give a damn about Mr. Bernstein or his children any longer.

Muata asks an additional question:

where is the black media OUTRAGE? i have waited a week for it!

warren balentine is the only black media personality that i know about that has addressed the killing of two white girls by two or three black men. is this another case of what i label black hypocrisy? we will scream to the top of our lungs when a black person is killed or mistreated by white men. we need to stop proving to the world that we are NOT PUBLICLY compassionate when the tables are turned.

where is the condemnation from black folk????

Reader DM Responds:

Is there black media (or white for that matter) when a black woman is killed by a black man?

I would venture to say NO!

Bottom line, we need to stop looking at everything as either Black or White. Sure there are times when race will play a role in thing but when it comes to heinous crimes such as these, whether you are black, white, blue, or red you should undergo due process and if found guilty be sentenced accordingly. In other words, the crime should not be considered any more profound than if these victims were black women slain at the hands of a black man.

-DM

Muata said...

Muata responds to DM:

I think I am saying what you are saying - but in a different way (your final paragraph). Either way, the outrage is not coming from the black community the way it would if the situation was reversed. I think you know that.

And, to address your first question: we rarely say anything when a black kills another black. It is like we are immunized to the savagery. Is there an on-going community campaign on black-black crime? No. But, let some white person call us "the N word". Things are addressed then. I have said it time and time again, 'black people are hypocrites in this area.'

-Muata

Reader LS Responds:

Why should there be any outrage based on the race of the killers and the victims? The outrage should be that a young woman in the prime of her life thus far was brutally murdered.

I will say I did find myself hoping the killers were not black.

Eve Carson is from my hometown. People there are distraught and no one cares about the race of the guys that did it. They just want them captured and prosecuted. Two young people lost their lives for no reason. That's the outrage.

-LS

Muata said...

Muata Responds to LS:

Lord, I know where the outrage is/should be: in the death of a young person. I am on board with that.

Ask yourself why you were hoping they were not black. In that thinking is the point I am making.

-Muata

Muata said...

Reader EJ Responds:

I would be ok with your thoughts if you were just as pissed when the white media doesnt cover black stories. I know there has been at least 20 black men in the last 2 years that have been released from prison and no main stream media outlet has ran 1 story. Where is your outrage?

-EJ

Muata said...

Muata Responds to EJ:

I am outraged. I believe we had a thorough email discussion about that topic. I also wrote a commentary on those white maniacs who kidnapped Megan Williams, the black girl from West Virginia. i condemn them!

The truth is too many of us are hypocrites. Flat out hypocrites. We show no collective national compassion when whites are slain by stupid black men. None. We sit back and don't say a word. Out of all the black media outlets one black man has said something publicly that I know of. One. Where is Al and Jesse now? They only come out when we are called coons. A harmless descriptive term used to demean, and we come out trying to get some white person fired. I think that is idiotic. We don't invest effort and time in black illiteracy. The fact that 48% black females from 10yrs old to 18yrs have a STD. The fact that black fools killed two police officers two months ago in GA. We need to address the problems we are causing. We won't. We are sitting back waiting on some white person to slip-up and speak his true feelings about us which are in many cases the same way we (so educated black folk or well-to-do) think.

Reader EJ brings in another case as support - The "Duke Rape" case and then Muata Responds:

what are you taking about?

that trifling girl lied to the DA. that's why the white boys got off. admit it, that girl was a lying in the first place! to top it off the black community went to bat for her, and she was lying.

-Muata

Muata said...

EJ Responds to Muata statement concerning Duke Rape case:

my point is about media coverage...not who lied or not. The media covered that story as if it were the next coming of jesus christ. Nobody went to jail in that case! The system found them not guilty. The same thing happend in the cases of the black men that were convicted (somebody lied).....no media coverage or outrage when they were found innocent. What's so hard to understand about that? I agree with larikus and derrick....there should be an outrage about the deaths not who did it. But if we are talking about media coverage....then all points should be coverage.

-EJ

Muata said...

EJ Responds again:

What are u talking about? Crime is Crime. Black folk will never be 100% in the right. All races have to deal with crime and ignorance. It's apart of our free society. And when u are on the public airwaves...you have a responsibility. If you want to say whatever you want....go private! And how in the hell was Sharpton suppose to know she was lying? Do you really feel blacks sit around and ignore crimes committed by blacks and then wait around for whites to "slip up" as you stated? The fact that you say they "slip up" says alot about how you view others compared to blacks.

Muata said...

Muata Responds to EJ:

YOU NEVER CALL A SPADE A SPADE. NEVER. It is always some lame support for black fools. Keep supporting these savages!

-Muata

Muata said...

Muata Responds to EJ:

We actually have millions of white people scared to speak their minds in reference to us. If they believe these fellas are savages LIKE I DO they can't say it because you and other 'sensitive to what is said pertaining to blacks' will get all upset and lodge a complaint. Some of us are HYPOCRITES on this accord. Face it. You will call me and say write about this when it has something to do with what white man has done to us, but no call from you this week asking me to condemn these black fools. No call. I am safe in calling you a hypocrite!

-Muata

Reader EJ Responds to Muata:

that's a lie. and you hate you.

-EJ

Muata Responds to EJ:

i really do HATE blacks who behave like Niggers! i really do. i can't stand them. you will sit in your hair shop and ask me not to talk about blacks when they are in the wrong. is that a lie? i will for the rest of my life be fair when it comes to coverage. i don't care if the person happens to be black. those guys are savages. freaking dirt! now, am i wrong for saying that? those black guys who killed the black cops in decatur are savages too. do i hate myself for saying that?

-Muata

Muata said...

Reader LS Responds:

Ouch.

I agree that we have people scared to speak their minds when it comes to blacks. These kids are terrible and they should be tried and burned at stake liek back in the day.

If you have no regard for human life then no one should be pissed if they put set fire to them.

-LS

Muata said...

Muata Responds to LS:

Once guilty is given to them through the courts, they deserve a bullet to the head. I would say this if the girls killed were black!

-Muata

Muata said...

EJ brings up what Muata calls an excuse and then Muata Responds:

The cops who shot that women in her home and then lied/covered it up.. are dirt as well. What do you think? What about the CIA smuggling drugs into the inner city....are they dirt? Address the bigger picture as well.

-EJ

Excuses. Did you rise above the traps set for you by the white man? Yes, ya did!
And, yes the CIA is dirt for doing that! Evil actually.

-Muata

Muata said...

Reader DM Responds:

Then by your own words, Warren Balentine is a hypocrite. Unless he voices the same outrage when a black woman is slain at the hands of a black man. Personally, I think this country focuses waaaayyyy too much on foolishness like celebrities, pop culture etc. and less on education and gun control. Bottom line, anybody who so ruthlessly kills anybody else without regard for human life or respect for themselves deserves what is coming to them Black, White or otherwise!

I don’t automatically sympathize with a person that f*cks up to this magnitude because they are black. I do believe that the system fails blacks more but ultimately when you are standing there with a gun to someone, you have a decision to make and you know right from wrong.

You are right in that some blacks will magnify their emotions about a crime committed to another black by someone who is white but part of that comes from the history that this country has bestowed upon us. Many blacks are still non trusting of the white race and the judicial system due to being kidnapped, raped, lynched, mutilated, humiliated, disenfranchised, and oppressed. Bottom line, crime is crime and should be weighed the same regardless of race.

Reader EJ Responds:

To read all of these emails....makes it seems like black men have been killing white women every week. Kinda like an epidemic. Because I am one of those black men with his head in the sand.....inform me as to when the last time (besides the current issues) a black man was accused of killing a white women. How about the last 2 big cases?

-EJ

Muata said...

Muata Responds to EJ:

The black cop in Ohio. That's one. His stupid behind did not want to pay child support. Idiot! No it is not an epidemic. We are discussing these two recent cases. That's my focus. Eric, you do everything but attach responsibility to black people. Excuse after excuse. You tell me the last time we (black folk) got upset because some white person spoke his/her mind about us, and we did not get bent out of shape. We are so darn sensitive over name calling, but fail to teach our children to read books. The additional point I am trying to make is we as a people are fighting the wrong battle. We are the enemy. The enemy within. Those knuckle heads going around killing people are our worst enemies on EVERY front. Guess what, the fool they caught this morning was also charged with killing an Indian student from Duke. What were these guys doing? Going around and robbing people. Don't even want to work. I guess they had it too hard in life. Lord I wish it was like the in Africa: The Elders would burn them alive. Actually, when guilt is established in some African countries that's what they do. I hate the crime and the guys who committed the crime. Sorry, to use the word hate - but I really do detest/hate them. Guess where they found the guy this morning: At some other black persons house. He was 'taken in' by another black person. Again, pathetic.

-Muata

Muata said...

Reader EJ Responds:

White cops killed an inocent elderly black women...then lied about it. It's crime! They all are idiots. Give me one excuse you have heard me make that justifies any crime. You cant. You just hate what you look like. Confront your fear of you.

-EJ

Muata said...

Muata gives Reader EJ his answer:

Michael Vick - What did you IMMEDIATELY say, "White people hunt." So shallow. You have excused all these fools in an effort to point out what white people do that is so wrong. Man, face it: Blacks can't get ahead in the WORLD's Opinion and even our own because we have black men doing stupid things. Just down right dumb things. Face yourself. Black men have been messing up for years. INCLUDING ME! We leave our women. We leave our children. We don't go to college in numbers like our women. We don't read. We refuse to speak English. We would rather watch videos over reading a book. We shoot each other over shoes and clothes. We infect our black women with STD's/HIV. We are the problem. And, I am not suppose to be tired of these jack-azzes. We have to take responsibility for our actions and become accountable. You and the men on this email have - but the majority of us have not, and ya know it. Ride around the hood. See the death walking around. The waste. I am so grateful our boy PM is in a position to be a mentor for someone else's child every day. He has to be a father to someone else's children. Your father had to be a father to me when my father was two blocks away. The black man has not held up his end of the deal. We are failing our communities, and then we blame our mothers, girls, and wives. I am embarrassed by what we have produced. A black female minister told me today that she is going to pray for our black men. I am praying her prayers work this time because guess what: so many black women have been praying for years.

Just FYI - one of the victim's best friend from childhood to now is a black female. She was on the news following the funeral on last weekend.

Interesting commentary. Praying for our black men.

Reader DM Responds to my statement regarding the Duke Rape case:

Yeah now I agree with you on this. She lied and to be honest, I never believed the story from the beginning. Something didn’t seem right about it. What I get frustrated with is people like Al Sharpton jumping on the bandwagon to support scenarios like these without getting all of the facts, then going out and positioning himself to represent us a leader in the Black community.

-DM

Muata said...

Reader JA Responds:

Yeah - it does seem like a double-standard... But i guess I view it as an outrage period - regardless of who committed the murders. My girlfriend's secretary is the mother of one of the victims. Girlfriend is black and her secretary - of course - is white. So, I can't see race in this horror as much as I see the tide of anger and rage going out of control in our society.

But to your point - yes, Black America would have been off the chain had the color of attackers/victims been reversed. And we SHOULD be showing more compassion; but I think the shame is keeping us quite - the way it does to white folk when they done messed up & can't fess up.

Well, let me rephrase that - Black America of today would be off the chain. Because the YESTERDAY black America has been dealing with white on black crimes being pushed under the rug for CENTURIES....Thank God we are trying to fight back for a change instead of being "passive"...

BUT, there may be some "old school hurt & resentment" that is keeping US from being responsive to this HORRIBLE CRIME. Much prayer...

Blessings!

Muata said...

Reader Responds:

I agree with you regarding your statements. I took feel that nothing is being said about these BLACK men who killed these young ladies! It’s almost hush hush in our community. But let a white guy come out and say something, and blacks are ready to stone the man!

Muata said...

Reader PM Responds:

I missed all the fun you were having regarding media and it's coverage of race and and crime. I ACTUALLY was spending time sharing with with 3 black male students the importance of decision making, choices, self-respect and pride in our ancestors.

-PM

Muata said...

Reader EJ Responds:

You are so outraged at these crimes because you fear how white people will look at you. I hate all crime! Regardless of who committs the crime. You have so much passion about this topic because you hate you! I don't relate to these men in anyway.....but you feel you do. When you become comfortable in your own skin, you will stop fearing how others see you and it will be more important how you see yourself.

-EJ

Muata said...

Reader JA Responds:

...I ALWAYS keep the black male in prayer. You all are the best of the best - no matter what a few 1000+ may do. You have survived this "life" on dog scraps from society and NO assistance from the "man" except to feed the ignorance of drug trafficking and having folk push the buttons of anger/rage fits. NO EXCUSES - just facts. BAD decisions or actions are not excusable by LAW. But we need to always look at the ROOT and not the blossom. THE ROOT tells you where the real problem lies... GET to the ROOT...

Blessings & Peace Brother....

Reader EFJ Responds:

Why is this particular case and the lack of dialog among black folk bothering you so much? Black folks say nothing when black on black crimes are committed everyday, so I don't understand why you would expect them to dialog about black on white crime.

I don't think the crimes against these two women were the result of black people hating white people. The Lauren Burk case I feel has more to do with mental illness than the hatred of white people. I saw an interview with the killer's mother and she said he was never the same after he returned home from the war and the fact the he let a white woman go, prior to abducting Lauren Burk, after the woman said she had a son in Iraq. So, to me that case has more to do with mentally illness than hatred.

Now the Eve Carson case is just the result of animals committing crimes. I think we would have gotten the same result regardless of the color of the person. I think Eve Carson would still be dead if she were black. The only difference would be the media attention given. But I strongly believe these animals would have killed a black person just as quickly as they killed the white person. That is what makes them animals. Their disregard for human life.

Sure images of black people in our media have a lot to do with the stereotypes perpetuated against black folks but I don't think that all white people think in terms of color as much as all black people do. Sure there are some white people that will never think anything good about black people and to me those people are lost forever. I feel that there are far more black people that apply color to every situation than a white person does. And to the white folks I have spoken to about these murders view them as senseless not because they were killed by black people but because they were killed period.

Brian, the fact that you are black should not make you any less scared. Animals, and that is what the murder's of Eve Carson are don't give a shit about your race and will kill you just so they don't have to look at you, so being black is not a pass. An animal is an animal and we should all be scared when animals are free to roam the street.

Muata Responds to EFJ:

I am tired of our HYPOCRISY. Period! Tired of it! These acts of hypocrisy are disgusting. No compassion for a white person - but compassion for a few black girls being called nappy headed when in fact their damn hair was nappy!

-Muata

Muata said...

Reader EFJ Responds:

Perhaps you should stop expecting black folks to do better! I have no expectation of us as black folks so when we don't get it right, I'm not that disappointed. I guess that can be viewed as a problem in it self.

-EFJ

Muata said...

Muata Responds to EFJ:

We should have the HIGHEST of expectations. Our ancestors did. Not having this expectation is part of the problem. We just don't care. We use to have so much pride and respect for ourselves. We don't even hold each other accountable anymore. Sad!

-Muata

Muata said...

Reader EFJ Responds:

No, don't get me wrong, I do have expectations and much pride and respect for myself, and those that I interact with on a daily basis. I especially try to instill that in my son every day, but on the broader picture, I can't control everyone and even though I hope daily that we as black people do the right thing, I won't allow them to make me feel like a failure when they don't do right.

Questions, do you see your self as a black man or a man that happens to be black?

This post says so much of what my husband and I have been discussing. Eventually the hatred has to leak elsewhere, the same as the music and clothes have. Thanks for saying it so well. ;-)
