Another “random” attack on a white by a black. The New York Post reports:
An attacker pummeled a bus passenger so hard he smashed the bones in his face after calling the victim a “cracker” in Manhattan – marking the second time in two days that people appeared to be randomly targeted in racial tirades against white people, authorities said.
If there is a discernible pattern, it is not random; an attack motivated by an identifiable person against another identifiable person, is not random; in this case, the identifier is race.
I suggest that cognitive dissonance is the reason why such an obvious correlation is not made.People understand that some blacks are going crazy and attacking whites, but the obvious (and frequently self-declared) racial motivation has to be disguised because that would force more unpleasant and broader realizations about African-American criminality and dysfunctionality.
A generation of over-privileged American blacks now feels it has authority and justification for the basest impulses of violence, unchecked by social or personal restraint, and that they will have protective cover from the White House on down, through Eric “My People” Holder and the organs of the state.
Other possible explanations are welcomed. I think mine is the most parsimonious.
