Like most, James also ignores the forgotten Zebra Killers, Black Muslim racial terrorists who subsequently murdered at least fifteen whites in San Francisco from 1973-4.
PS: here’s how one filmmaker got around the “Zebra Killer problem” — he made the killer a white guy in blackface.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
