white people make up black attackers: master post.
Okay I am posting this just because I want to save it and keep it for future reference. There is nothing in here that hasn’t been said before. Please print this out and put it on your damn fridge or in your first aid kits along with a set of pliers to pull your own damn teeth out when you can’t handle saying the same shit 20 times a day to grown white people.
White folks like to do heinous shit and blame it on mysterious generic black men and women. This isn’t just a dated thing from some long ass time ago, this is a current and normalized trend and here are just some of the biggest stories I could find.
Okay, let’s look at some examples of white people doing shady insane shit and blaming generic black men and women.
okay? Remember Bethany Sorro?
Bethany Sorro claimed a black woman threw acid on her face. Turned out to be a hoax - there was no black woman attacker, she did it to herself.
How about Bryan Douglas Wells, the pizza-delivery man turned bank robber?
He told a bank that three black men had tied a bomb under his neck in order to rob a bank. Turns out he and his white friends were full of shit, but that didn’t stop them from accidentally detonating the bomb and killing him in the process.
Or hey, how bout Susan Smith?
The white woman who murdered her own children and then claimed a black man had done it? Huh, sounds familiar. Turns out she didn’t really like her own damn kids.
Or Charles Stuart who killed his own wife n kids and then claimed a generic young black man had enacted this horrific tragedy on his whole damn family?
He only got caught because his brother admitted to helping him kill his wife n kids, and up until then the police had booked a slough of young black male suspects in hopes of pinning this shit on someone.
or Ashley Todd,
who, in the midst of the 2008 US presidential election, claimed a black Obama supporter had attacked her in a politically-motivated “mugging.” Turns out, she was full of shit.
or Philidelphia Police Sgt. Robert Ralston, who claimed a black man shot him in the foot?
But actually he admitted to shooting himself in the foot, and had no reason when questioned why.
Or how about, Conrad Zdzierak, this white man from Ohio who robbed banks:
dressed in this black mask:
so that he would look like a black dude:
and so that, he would hope, a black man would be arrested and charged in his place?
So, can I just say, I and any other folks of color who ain’t got no fucking time for you and your white tears have good cause. I’ll reserve my damn judgement for when yall aint consistently full of shit.
Okay. If you know more of these stories please add them and feel free to edit this post. I came back and added a few based on stories I simply had not noticed.
Thank you, this has been a post.

“When we understand love as the will to nurture our own and another's spiritual growth, it becomes clear that we cannot claim to love if we are hurtful and abusive. Love and abuse cannot coexist. Abuse and neglect are, by definition, the opposites of nurturance and care ... An overwhelming majority of us ... were taught we were not okay, where we were shamed, verbally and/or physically abused, and emotionally neglected even as we were also taught to believe we were loved. For most folks it is just too threatening to embrace a definition of love that would no longer enable us to see love as present in our families [and relationships]. Too many of us need to cling to a notion of love that either makes abuse acceptable or at least makes it seem that whatever happened was not that bad.”—
bell hooks, from all about love: New Visions
Reading all about love has been and continues to be instrumental in my path towards healing, growth, and self-love. It has taught me that my pain is valuable and that through healing and surviving, I have become stronger, more resilient.
I often have to remind myself not to minimize my experiences, not to forget about the shit that I went through, and when I read all about love and come across content like the above quote, I recall why the remembrance of my struggles is so important: I never want to be in another situation where I mistake abuse for love.
