It’s not getting worse. It’s been there all along.

When people scream “black lives matter” it’s not discrediting the value of your own white life. It’s a furious, panicked reminder to us that they matter, too. We live in a white washed world where it’s easier to picture a black man as a gang banger than it is a pharmacist or doctor or college professor.

    We live in the real world where it is more likely that a black male is a gang banger – or unaffiliated thug – than it is for one to be a pharmacist or doctor or college professor.

    And, as for Blacks caring about Black lives, Americans will listen more deeply to that rant when the number one cause of death among Black males under 40 is homicide by another Black male.
