Hint: the third suspect is white
Can we also maybe talk about the fact that the white dude was driving the car and he’s getting charged with a lesser offence than the one dude who was just sittin in it?
see now I didn’t know that.
How much ya’ll wanna bet somebody is going to try to say that the white boy involved in this crime was a good soul who was corrupted by us darkies and our evil “gangsta culture”
Can we talk about the fact that news outlets actually ran a photo of 3 Black teens when this story broke. Like they basically used a photo of a random Black Michael Jones (the 3rd/white defendant) in place of this white dude:
And, on top of that, the other two, 16 and 15 respectively, are being charged as adults, while this guy, 17, is being charged as a youthful offender. While he will still be tried in adult court, there will be more options open to him in terms of sentencing than the other two if convicted.
WHAT THE FUCKITY FUCK
jesus christ… this is the kind of story I show to my friends when they say “I don’t see race” or “why can`t we move past all this racism stuff” or “we should all just get along” and all the other white, privileged bullshit that people spew out of their mouths to avoid real, racist issues and white privilege like this story (and many others) right here!
