Yvette Asks Writers Charing Ball and Darryl C@x: Do Blacks See Ex-LAPD Cop Turned Killer as Django?

by Yvette Carnell

The African-American community seems to have mixed feelings about the Ex-LAPD cop turned killer Chris Dorner. Some are Django conversationcondoning his actions, citing the rampant and systemic racism of the LAPD, while others who don’t condone his actions, still understand his rage. In this conversation, I ask writers Charing Ball and Darryl C@x why many blacks seem at least somewhat sympathetic to Dorner.

Charing Ball writes a regular column here and blogs here.  Darryl C@x is a seasoned writer who is currently working on a book.

    Is it fact or rumor that this racist Obama basher named Ted Nugent has been invited to the house of Congress when the President delivers his State of the Union address. This person has really made some comments that would be viewed as threating to our Commander-in-Chief. Nugent was alledgedly invited
    by a member of the Congress which goes to show the on going disrespect the President endures. This is something to discuss, not Django comparisions.

    This video clip is pointless,and why compare Chris Dorners situation to a movie?Who the h**l is Charing Ball ? because she does,nt know what the h**l she,s talking about.I think that for them to be having this discussion like they,re having a sunday brunch or something is obscene.One things for sure in a case like this ,is that black folks don,t have each others back,theres no type of black union or anything.I hope the brotha does,nt get caught and he does get away because if the authorities do catch him they will k**l him for sure.

    This Charing broad obviously has no clue what she is talking about and its unfortunate that she felt like she had to talk the most to show just how ignorant she is.

    Chris Dorner is not crazy, he is a product of the imperialistic American military and also a victim of the oppressive, white supremacist system that manifested itself in the LAPD. It is unfortunate that those people had to die for the cause but they are collateral damage just like in a war, just like Mr. Dorner was trained to do by the U.S. military.

    Does Ms. Ball feel the military personnel who k**l innocent people overseas with drone attacks are crazy? Probably not. Stop insinuating this man is crazy, American history dictates, even demands, that innocent b***d be spilled to further an agenda.

    What a dumb f*****g question? Do blacks see Dorner as Django? Really?! Come ooooooon! I’m black and I simply see a man who was treated unfairly, experienced racism, highly intelligent, developed a very cynical and negative view against the LAPD due to the department’s gross corruption and racism, and eventually he snapped. It as simple as that. Dorner snapped and is in the process of seeking revenge against those who did him wrong. Nothing more or less. The man snapped. I didn’t associate him with Django anywhere in this current saga of his capture. GTFOH!

    The media is covering this story through the lens of prejudice! African American males continue to be brutalized and referred to as animals and monsters when they retaliate for years of victimization. However, not once did the media refer to Adam Lanz, the killer of 20 elementary children as an “animal” or a “monster” but repeatedly honed in on the fact that he was psychologically troubled! When the white murder Holmes killed all those movie goers in Colorado last summer, ., not once did we hear of him being referred to as a monster or an animal, but once again the media has continued to describe him as mentally troubled.
    I don’t condone the actions of the former police officer Dorner and dont believe he should have killed the Quan’s daughter and her fiancee. Obviously, something has gone terribly wrong in his life and he snapped. He has a vendatta against LAPD, and it is not without merit. They didn’t give this brother the moral support he was crying out for, and in fact invalidated his concerns. Now he has a million dollar bounty on his head! I wonder if Holmes were still a fugitive having killed those 12 persons inside the Century 16 theater, whether or not the FEDS would place a million dollar bounty on his head?!

    I will repeat, that as a rule we don’t do “crazy” over such BS, we as a race have been t******d in so many different ways for so long, weather it be losing a job due to White lies or a White setup, being laid off from a job when it should have been one of them, not being promoted on the job when we should have been, we are not great b**t kissers so when push comes to shove it will be us out the door before them. We are strong people, we had to have been for our forefathers to have dealt with slavery the way they did and survive. I don’t condone what he did and never will but I do understand where he is coming from. He had too much time on his hands to think about what had been done to him, he should have found another job and talked to someone that would have helped him overcome the BS but he snapped instead. They will not take him alive and may God have mercy on his soul.

    It is a sad day for people of color to forever witness how easily it is for one of us to be black-balled. Doing the right thing is not always rewarded with positive applaud. Rather, if it is against a “white” person(s) it can sometime back fire depending upon how much “weight” that person(s) carry. As you know, this world is still run by and all laws and made by and our freedom is given by – who else – the “white” man.
    As in the case of all whistle blowers, their future is c*t short. How then can one prove his/herself worthy when there are no ears to listen? We have no black leaders, no group(s) of blacks trying to rectify this situation. No one “sit in” as was done in the 60s, or withhold our money from them. It’s time that we step it us. I worry about my grand children. When they finish college, what jobs are there for them, what will be the status of Social Security, or will there be Social Security? I am retired, but I still pay nearly $100 monthly for Medicare. There have been “NO” entitlements for me, I worked for all and more than I now receive from Social Security.

    I just saw Chief Beck of the LAPD speaking on CNN regarding the fear felt by members of the LAPD and their families because of the supposed actions of former Officer Dorner. Well, Chief Beck, how do you think African-Americans feel every moment of their lives when we are discriminated against on the job, in our private lives, even church because of the color of our skin? We can’t stay home, we don’t have armed guards, but we have to live with a daily target called melanin. It is tragic what has happened in CA to Mr. Dorner and the officers killed and the innocent victims but racism caused this situation and it will not get better. Before you make a statement like this, Think. How have you as a leader worked to STOP situations such as these within the LAPD? Did you aid or hinder racism, look in the mirror. In a way we are all guilty in some way by our actions, and lack of action.

    Sympathetic for the simple d**n fact it happened to me too! persecution is persection from a 16year long career and taken away all behind a bigot who openly admitted she set me up with personnel to force me to resign. How wold any of you feel to have your main resource taken from you in order to survive and worked hard for years to get to a comfort level? I don’t have the heart to go on a shooting rampage. He is definatly taken drastic measures with real b***s let me tell you! But When is America going to face the truth that racism has to come to an end one way or another? Why is it so d**n constitutional for an employer to persecute minority employees at thier say-so adn dicretion but then when retailiation occurrs it’s a d**n big problem? Hey you get back what you put out in life is what I always taught.
