Brothaman, I have a possibly-sensitive question for you. Why is it that some black people both complain about racism a lot, whilst at the same time reinforcing negative racial-stereotypes with their actions?
Example: There was this chap at university who would always be complaining about racism around campus (I never witnessed any), and if he got a bad grade the tutor was "racist" (he always got bad grades, never showed up). He hated white people, and seemed convinced that we all owed him something because of slavery.
He hated me, since at the time I was living in a house full of lovely black girls, and was seeing one that he wanted. Anyway, one day I caught him in my house stealing chicken from my fridge. Not only was the chicken not his, but he didn't live in our house. I pointed out to him that he is always complaining of racism, yet by sneaking into my house and stealing our chicken (of all things!), he was in fact living up to and reinforcing a common racial stereotype; black people are thieves and love chicken. I ended up caving his little face in, I was so pissed off.
What is your view on this kind of hypocrisy among certain individuals within the black community? Was I wrong to be violent towards him? He was a self-styled 'gangsta rappa'. I must say, it felt really good to make him bleed all over his snapback cap and high tops. Good times!
If a black guy was literally stealing chicken from me it what be so funny that I would forget to be mad. That sounds like a parody they might do on Boondocks.
