Many black people on Twitter—as well as untold legions of their white enablers and allies—appear very pissed that the NAACP story never really got “legs,” as they like to say in the publishing biz. Or as the blacks like to say, there may be a bit of “player hating” going on here by disgruntled African Americans who feel nudged out of the victimization spotlight, however temporarily. They decry the fact that the racist media cares about a dozen dead white Parisians much more than it does about the slightly scuffed side of a building in Colorado.
They wail that “race relations in this country” are at a fever point, even after “all we’ve done to struggle for progress” and that “white people shouldn’t be so mean” and that “black bodies are being gunned down like so many jackrabbits in Tennessee Ernie Ford’s watermelon patch” and that “black people have every right to hoot and holler in the streets while leaping up and down, scratching their genitals, and burning convenience stores to the ground simply because history says so.”
Oh, shut the hell up at least for five minutes…please?
