This was my reply to a person who asked why are (the n-word) so violent and join gangs during a racist rant someone had or rather a LOT of ppl had in response Jesse Williams placing a microscope on the U.S. police system in his speech a few months back at the BET Awards. As a father of a bi-racial multicultural child, I was compelled to respond.
I am coming to the understanding that much of the racism and hatred that we encounter is regional and how people internalize what they see growing up. I am going to paraphrase the question because when it was posted it was a lot angrier and hate driven but I was trying to focus more of the core of WHY the person felt the way they felt and what led them to that type of thinking, besides the fact that it was being used to co-sign the savage and predatory behavior of police officers that are just outright WRONG!!!

This was my reply to a person who asked why are blacks violent and join gangs during a racist rant someone had or rather a LOT of ppl had to Jesse Williams speech a few months back at the BET Awards.  As a father of a bi-racial multicultural child, I was driven to respond. I am coming to the conclusion that much of the racism and hatred that we encounter is regional and how people internalize what they see growing up. I am going to paraphrase the question because when it was posted it was a lot angrier and hate driven but I was trying to focus more of the core of WHY the person felt the way they felt. What led them to that form of thinking...

 

Why do [BLACKS] join gangs and why are they so violent? If they don't like it here the can go back to AFRICA!

 

 

...to answer your question anytime you have a society where there is a minority class that has been subjugated, manipulated and held down both physically and mentally and then socioeconomically for CENTURIES there will be a great deal of angst, anger and violence toward the established infrastructure. [Note: This is true throughout history of every culture. Check the French Revolution for one example]. Add to that the fact that [there is a] purposeful implementation of social decentralization of local economy(s) with a focus on the removal of our leaders on both a local and national scale as well as the destruction of the family base because of the removal of the male entity due to false arrest and incarceration  you end up with rebellious and angry minority youth looking for that structure and leadership elsewhere, namely gangs or "organizations" and who become increasingly violent towards anyone and anything seeking to destroy that family or economic structure. You may not understand it but the violence stems from a twisted loyalty from wanting to have some kind of structure in their lives. Regardless of how crazy it may seem to anyone from the outside. To them those ppl are their family and most ppl are willing to do just about anything for their family. Especially if that family helps them put food on the table or puts their kids thru school. This is not black ppl this is HUMAN NATURE. And it has been proven time and time again throughout history. From the Jews and the Romans to the Irish and the British, to Pakistanis and Indians to Native Americans here in the U.S. and South America. I hope I answered your question.?
