"Once You Get Excited the Mind Has Sold You Something." [White Lives Matter More to White Media]. As with so-called “black on black crime,” Racists think this story is important because they believe it is saying something foul about all black people [the imagined other] and saying something reassuringly flattering about themselves. Media coverage of the alleged kidnapped & "tortured" white teen ["disabled," "Trump supporter"] has already eclipsed the glancing coverage given to the many Black murder victims in Chicago - their stories pop up & vanish by Tuesday. (And did those murder victims' killers support Black Lives Matter? Because protesting against unlawful governmental violence makes you violent. Did the media even see that Israeli murder video [manslaughter] or provide the same coverage when whites do this to each other?? White media also sells terror to racists.
Like the media promotion of “black on black crime” and promotion of the murder rate in Chicago while crime is overwhelmingly down everywhere else, overblown coverage of this incident is also a tool to promote the product of white supremacy/racism.
[Dr. Blynd explains, so-called "Black on Black crime is a psycho-political euphemism, unwittingly used and abused by African-Americans and deliberately by Caucasians, describing demographic criminal activity in general, as people commit violent crimes on people who live in closest proximity to them, and the violence mostly occurs by those and to those who are held hostage under chronic and cyclical economically disadvantaged circumstances and environments. Do you ever hear of the slogan "White-on-White" crime? Most violent crimes (by number and by percentage of population) take place by Caucasians against Caucasians. Where's the associated terminology?" [MORE]
White supremacy/racism is a power group dynamic. This "group dynamic" involves a relationship between whites and Blacks that is based on vast unequal power. It also concerns the roles that are played by whites & blacks in this system and the conditionings necessary to maintain this relationship. No one can play master without servants - it is a two way relationship. Deluded racists with their imaginary beliefs empower themselves with paranoia over nonsense like this video. The "white American paranoia" behind this incident is a tremendous ego boost to the full boat or racist's ego.
As explained by Amos Wilson,
"To look at the world or a segment of it with a rigid, hyper-alert, and all-consuming expectation — to search reality repetitively only for confirmation of one's suspicions while ignoring aspects of that reality which disconfirm those suspicions; to pay no attention to opposing rational arguments, cogent, well-founded evidence, except to find in them only those features that seem to confirm one's original views; to examine reality with extraordinary prejudice, rejecting facts, information and alternative possibilities while seizing on and exaggerating any scintilla of often irrelevant evidence that supports one's original expectations — denotes a driven need: a psychoneurotic, psychopathological need to defend an ego perilously in danger of disintegration and to defend it regardless of cost to oneself and others. Such a suspicious and paranoid orientation speaks to the need to rigidly construct and control reality so as to maintain self-control, to empower the ego and to gainfully exploit a relevant situation. This rigidity of attention, stereotypical viewing of the world; this chronic condition of hyper-alertness, hypersensitivity; this need to create the world according to one's own deluded images, to subject others to one's paranoid views, to exploitatively have them serve that need, bespeaks the greater need to gain ego satisfaction and enhancement, self-definition and material gain through manipulating the behavior and consciousness over others. Paradoxically, this greater need bespeaks a fundamental dependency on a world and others and simultaneously, of a protest against and denial of that dependency. It expresses an ego vulnerability which must remain defensively hidden, an ego weakness which must appear to itself and others as strength, an extremely tense, unstable ego whose tenuous equilibrium can only be maintained by projecting that tension and vulnerability into the world and others. Thus the keeper of law comes to need the outlaw. And needing him, creates him. The keeper of the disturbs the peace by projecting hallucinated hostile threats where they do not exist.
That the White American must see virtually every Black male as criminal or as a potential criminal regardless of facts to the contrary, bespeaks an intense psychic need of White America to perceive him as such.
What does White America have to gain from choosing to perceive Black males as stereotypically criminal? By socio-psychologically inducing Black males into criminality?" [MORE]
Four young people accused of torturing a Chicago special-needs teen and broadcasting the incident on Facebook Live were ordered held without bail Friday afternoon.
The suspects who appeared to be high in the video, face hate crime, kidnapping, unlawful restraint and battery charges in their alleged role in the attack.
"I'm wondering where was the sense of decency that each of you should have had?" Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil asked the suspects. "When the mom reached out asking about his child ... Where was it? I don't see it."
The decision to deny them bail brought cheers in the courtroom. [don't worry white folks there is no system of Black Supremacy; there will be no drama about whether charges will be filed, whether a jury will convict and whether punishment will be imposed. And there is no mainstream Black media to normalize or humanize the defendants or to otherwise disturb your beliefs]
After the hearing, Assistant State's Attorney Erin Antonetti told reporters the 18-year-old victim suffers from schizophrenia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. He was friends with one of the suspects, Jordan Hill, and was spending time with him, starting on New Year's Eve, she said.
The attacks started in the back of a stolen van after Hill apparently became angry because the victim's mother called and asked about her son's location, Antonetti said.
Hill took the teen to a third-floor apartment in Chicago, where he was bound and gagged, beaten over several days by the two male and two female suspects and allegedly forced to drink toilet water, with some of the attacks broadcast on Facebook Live, she said.
"During the course of the attack, defendant Hill communicated with the victim's mother and demanded $300 ransom in exchange for getting her son back," Antonetti said.
The youth finally escaped Tuesday when police came to the apartment because the suspects argued with second-floor residents who'd complained about the noise, she said. The victim was treated at a hospital and released the same day. [MORE] and [MORE]
