Re: “Understanding violence in Charleston and in America

Looks like someone is blissfully ignoring the violence in Israel between the Jews and Palestinians. Maybe, it's just easier to be ignorant and believe that Arabs are just filthy towel-heads that deserve to have their homes bulldozed, their women raped, elementary schools bombed or shot up with tear gas. Just like it's just easier to believe that greed, intolerance, violence from our ancestors has nothing to do with we who are today or how we treat others that don't have the same color of skin. Also, this isn't about Africa, this isn't about the Holocaust survivors (as appalling as these tragedies are, and don't forget that Americans for the most part chose to not believe that the Jews were being subjected to one of the most inhumane and sick atrocities known to that current generation in a society that was supposed to be modernized). This is about our country, our people, our fellow Americans and OUR issues. This isn't just a black issue, it's an issue that affects us all and instead of turning our heads away, dismissing African Americans as inherently violent and pretending that we have had nothing to do with the dark legacy they inherited from Anglo Americans, we need toopen our eyes, own up to our mistakes and help fix the problems that we contributed to and walked away from. It also makes me sick that anyone would imply that because a writer is white, he should know better than to write such articles. I applaud him for being brave and having the intestional fortitude to stand up and hold ALL those accountable for contributing to the violent society we suffer today.
