Rule of Flaw

This is about the most ignorant and illogical article I believe I have ever read about the black plight for equality.  Darlena Cunha, a Time Magazine contributor wrote a piece stating rioting was a necessary part of the American experience. Really?

What do these media morons not get about what happened in the death of Michael Brown?  The giant boy they so vehemently support did this:


This is my purportedly 'white privileged' viewpoint according to Cunha: the shithead robbed a convenience store and as the owner protested, he roughed him up and then turned toward him again in a threatening manner.  The boy child was a clear 12 inches taller than the convenience store owner, also very dark skinned I might add but that doesn't seem to matter to the riot and race baiters.  Black on black crime escapes them.

What seems to matter is that big boy wanted some cigarillos and felt he had the right to take them from someone else.  He was merely acting like all those superior black leaders have instructed him to do so through the ages; he deserved to take what he did not earn. People like Barack Obama, and Louis Farrakhan, and Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton have been yelling this in his inner ear since he was born.  It is the policy that has actually been put into practice in this country since the 2008 election of Obama.  I actually like to think of this as black privilege and frankly I imagine Martin Luther King to be rolling over in his grave over this bastardization of what he beckoned.

Armed or unarmed, the boy giant was a menace and his actions caught on camera speak a lot about what his behavior and mindset might have been like a mere minutes after this incident when he was stopped because he fit the description of the perpetrator reported in a convenience store theft only minutes earlier  Not only was he walking down the middle of the street and not yielding to traffic he was also openly carrying the box of cigarillos reported stolen, hardly a racial profiling stop by Officer Darren Wilson.  Did Brown deserve to get shot for this particular incident?  Hell no. He deserved to have his ass beat by parents who should have taught him to abide by the law and behave respectfully toward others.  Clearly they didn't do their job.

Where the story goes awry is when Brown forces the officer to remain in his squad car, reaches in and punches him, and places his hand and thus fingerprints on the cops gun, and turns around and comes back toward the cop during pursuit for you guessed it, illegal behavior.  His ass needed to be shot.  Period.  I don't care what color you are, if you wrestle for a cops gun, you deserve to be shot dead.  Police officers exist in this country to protect and enforce the laws. They aren't here to merely suggest compliance. That's what Wilson did, he attempted to enforce the law.  Would I have rather watched him shoot the dickhead in the legs a dozen times?  Yes.  The dumbass broke the law and laid hands on a copper, but that seems of no consequence here.

Why anyone is questioning the black white issue here is a waste of breath.  There are actually important overreaches of police brutality that should be debated, such as ripping a quadriplegic from his wheelchair and slamming him to the ground.  The Brown incident isn't one of them.  It's just another currently in vogue opportunity to bash conservative values.

Cunha goes on to state, "Because when you have succeeded, it ceases to be a possibility, in our capitalist society, that anyone else helped you. And if no one helped you succeed, then no one is holding anyone else back from succeeding. Except they did help you, and they are holding people back. So that blaming someone else for your failures in the United States may very well be an astute observation of reality, particularly as it comes to white privilege versus black privilege."  Da fuq?

Is she living in the same country as the rest of us? Apparently not.  I don't know anyone who fails to profusely thank those who helped them succeed in our oh so, 'capitalist society'. We are a thanks-giving nation.  We are a nation of recognition as well, what with all the awards handed out each year. This author is demented as she justifies the cycle of black minority failings.  Her take is that white privilege is to blame for all the ills of the world and it harkens back to those pesky, racist, bible thumping, gun toting Tea Partiers.

The author highlights comments made about the Ferguson rioters on Tea Party websites and calls the Boston Tea Party, the very namesake, a riot as justification for the behavior in Ferguson the last few months. 

ri·ot
ˈrīət
noun
noun: riot; plural noun: riots
  1. 1.
    a violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd.

However a quick google search for the definition of riot shows the Boston Tea Party was not a riot by its very definition.  There was no violence.  They weren't burning, "that bitch down."  Cunha would have done well to do a tad more research before making the illogical Boston Tea Party connection which is really just a thinly disguised conservative values bashing argument. 

Cunha's statement and quotes used would also indicate that all Tea Party members are white, yet there are scores of black, Asian, and Latino Tea Party members that don't seem to count.  She goes on to write, "Instead of tearing down other human beings who are acting upon decades of pent-up anger at a system decidedly against them, a system that has told them they are less than human for years, we ought to be reaching out to help them regain the humanity they lost, not when a few set fire to the buildings in Ferguson, but when they were born the wrong color in the post-racial America."  Really? Just how many of Michael Brown's 18 years did he spend being told he was less than a human being?  How many years while he was allowed to graduate with his class though he did not have enough credits and had just completed them before the theft incident? How many years of slavery and segregation did he or his parents endure?  Just wondering.

Cunha doesn't go on to explain how many white folks have come out in droves to assist black shop owner Natalie DuBose on GoFundMe, where over 8,000 donors of all colors and creeds have given more than $262,000 to help regain that old 'lost community'.  Not only has DuBose been assisted, but other shop owners in Ferguson have been assisted as well.  I suppose that little factoid wasn't important to the cause of bashing conservative values like giving to those in need.  Look ma, whitey bashing whitey and calling on more rioting by blacks makes Cunha one of the uber-nonracist proud. Forget logic. Forget that nifty thing called rule of law.



To Cunha, blacks ought to riot, and riot frequently.  "Blacks in this country are more apt to riot because they are one of the populations here who still need to." Gee, I wonder how the Latinos feel about that statement?

I suppose facts only matters to Cunha in reporting when it helps with the real gist of her article which is bashing conservative values and those who believe rule of law is a God given right that should be applied to all members of our society. What a ruby red ass-clown.
