More Evidence to Suggest That We Should be Profiling Young (White) Men?

by Yvette Carnell

No one is profiling young white men for having a propensity toward violence, and when writer David Sirota wondered aloud, on MSNBC’s Up With Chris Hayes, why this wasn’t happening, he was met with an onslaught of blather from the right wing. Here’s what Sirota actually said:

 I said that because most of the mass shootings in America come at the hands of white men, there would likely be political opposition to initiatives that propose to use those facts to profile the demographic group to which these killers belong. I suggested that’s the case because as opposed to people of color or, say, Muslims, white men as a subgroup are in such a privileged position in our society that they are the one group that our political system avoids demographically profiling or analytically aggregating in any real way.

Like it or not, Sirota may be onto something, and recent random killings, from the Aurora, Colorado to  Sandy Hook, Connecticut, seem to indicate that the main group predisposed toward random violence is white males.

And if that weren’t enough, Anonymous has released video of a group of males (three white, one non-white) making fun of a girl being r*ped, even going so far as to say how the girl was “deader than” Trayvon Martin, adding, “she is so r*ped her p**s is about as dry as the sun right now.” These are high school aged boys who are, simultaneously, making fun of r*pe and the killing of a black teen.

Also, keep in mind how much these teens enjoyed mocking Trayvon Martin’s death after the fact, even coming up with something called “Trayvoning”, where they would play dead while holding Skittles and Iced Tea:

Trayvoning-1-400x300

 

Are black teens killing each other in Chicago? Yes. But gang violence is not equivalent to random violence. It doesn’t indicate  blood thirst, or even psychopathology.  But does making fun of the dead or hurt indicates something craven is amiss in the mind of that person?  We should get to the bottom of what that thing is, that thing which makes death of brown people hilarious, and r*ping a woman a thing which elicits uproarious laughter.

  1. You Are Just Now Figuring That Out? Hmmmm!!!

  2. Finally someone had the sense to confront the white elephant that has been in the room with us from the very beginning…

    What the problem is they are no longer afraid of us. We need to profile their ass.Everytime they do something to one of our
    people we do the same to two of theirs. They think we are

    angry black men and woman. Well let's give them reasons now to think that way.I am so tired of the bullshit!!

  4. This is a conversation worth having.

  5. I AGREE TOTALY… PROFILE THEY ASS

  6. Seriously, are we really surprised by this perspective? History has revealed the awful reality that this particular racial "male" group has a innate propensity and notorious inclination for murderous actions toward mankind, the world over. It is a testament to their egregiously entitled & superior image of their mere existence.

  7. This is so true….we need speak more about this!

  8. Maybe we should start profiling you Caucasians. This article does make a very valid point.

  9. Oh yes, “we need to talk about kevin” indeed.

    White males are most likely to be serial killers and mass murderers and should be profiled but that would be admitting a genetic defect.

    Hence, law enforcement only profile for them after the fact because then it is harder to hide their crimes and there is the increased risk of public outcry for against letting them continue to get more victims.

    Hunt them down. It is an opportunity to finally diversify. These types of killers are only harder to detect when active because law enforcement makes that type of ‘UNSUB’ the last suspect on their wishlist.

  11. I keep saying this over and over, start attacking these racist idiots and this kind of stupid shit will stop.. do unto others as they do unto you. you want police brutality to stop, then black people brutalize cops and there familys. give it right back to them.. white boys call you a nigger, knock their teeth right down their throat, they will not call you another one..

    • Hey I tried that and it really worked. Never again was I called the n-word by him or his friends. Had him sippin threw a straw, 4, 8 months or more real talk!!!
