I live in two worlds – one an all White/Hispanic world where the only crimes I was ever victimized by were those committed by the police, and once when my house was robbed by one of the few black teenagers in Fort Collins.
My other world is an almost all-black neighborhood in Maryland, where most of the people are families who moved away from Baltimore to escape the criminal gang culture prevalent there. Unfortunately, that gang culture is spreading into Columbia, and I now get harassed regularly by gangs of black teenagers who were raised in a culture of entitlement, low expectations, and blame of zero self-esteem white progressives.
I’m obviously no fan of the police, but the reason that police are wary of black male teenagers, is because they commit crimes at a much, much higher rate than any other group of people. In order to reduce events like Ferguson, we need to end the culture of crime and violence among black teenagers. This will require that self-loathing white progressives stop encouraging and feeding that culture, as they have done for the past 50 years.
