Well one reason I 'don't care' is her opening paragraph:
The words that follow are not for the white men who write to me about black-on-black crime, pointing out weekend death tolls. I have nothing to say to you because you don't care about these communities. You write merely to highlight the viciousness, and then extrapolate in nutty ways about "black people" as a whole.So bemoan broad brush racism by making a broad brush comment about 'white males' (which I happen to be).
With that attitude, why should I give crap about those Chicago neighborhoods turning into warzones? Why should I support any measure that is proposed to get anything done especially since many of the measures seem aimed at restricting MY freedoms and rights even though I've done absolutely nothing wrong.
Why should I care when the closest thing to a 'reason' given (and I use this term very loosely, even more so than 'journalist') is the ever present Race Card, the police aren't doing enough because it's black on black.
Yep, that Race Card again (as seen in the opening paragraph). Calling the SC church shooting "one of the worst acts of terrorism committed not just in a church, but in this country" is one of the most ignorant and baiting statements one could make while (as horrible as it was) ignoring the dozens of other incidents across that nation that WEREN'T committed by a racist white guy (like the church shooting, Sandy Hook, Oklahoma City, etc)
If you want more of the 'complete picture', perhaps she should watch videos of police crime scenes in Chicago as they fight back onlookers who are trying to trash evidence or the countless family members of ventilated thugs justifying their criminal actions and blaming those who defended themselves. maybe the single digit percent of violent crime that's actually prosecuted and not pled down to minor charges and the offenders let back loose on the streets. That would be more of a start than traveling to SC.
And the whole 'Domestic Terrorism' meme. While it's a nice buzz phrase popular in media circles, think very carefully about the consequences of declaring it such. Are you really prepared to accept the measures necessary to end the violence under that handle? Watch the move 'The Siege' before you answer.
Yet somehow, I keep being blamed for Chicago crime because I'm a white, male, (iow inherently racist) gun owner who apparently enables 50k violent, criminal, gang bangers.
So no, I don't 'care' yet I'll still be blamed anyway.
