Violence by White supremacists could induce tipping point

The uptick in murders of Black Americans, allegedly by violent White supremacists since 2016 presents a disturbing reality. The recent murder of a Black 18-year-old teen by an alleged White supremacist, who slit the teens throat at a BART station, before stabbing her cousin multiple times, leaving her in critical condition, confirms the threat is real.

According to a report by the Anti-Defamation League,White supremacists and other far-right groups committed themajority of extremist-related murders in the United States in 2017. White supremacists were “directly responsible” for 18 out of 34 U.S. extremist-related deaths that year, the ADL said. Islamic extremists, by comparison, were only responsible for nine deaths in America. Last year’s share of white supremacist killings represents a jump from 2016, when such groups accounted for nine homicides.

I am going to present here what others are tip-toeing around. This is especially targeted to the “privileged Americans,” who likely have never felt the vibes of racial hate.

It is a given for White supremacists, any skin hue a slight shade duskier than albescent denotes inferiority. I have felt this negative energy for most of my adult life. Racism never really diminished enough. What I could try to explain to many who deny racial bias in the White privilege class, you could never understand. You could never understand the target that many Black Americans feel on our backs at the current time since this 45th POTUS took power.

Evil men and women are waking every day with the thought of committing heinous acts against Blacks – a “lynching” spirit for which we suspect many cops are imbued, longing for excuses to abuse Blacks and other minorities under the color of authority. There are many with bad intentions like confessed killer Dylann Roof and Waffle House gunman Travis Reinking, who targeted African Americans.

And he’s a policy-advisor for Trump, mind you, the architect of the current Trump Administration policy to separate migrant children from undocumented parents at the U.S.-Mexico border and detain them in fenced enclosures. Incredible!

Since Trump’s anemic denunciation of White supremacists from David Duke to White neo-Nazi and alt-right demonstrators at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va. In Aug. 2017, some old norms have returned to some cities, towns, and hamlets in the nation, reminiscent of “Sundowner Towns,” where a Black family stranded after dark in predominantly White enclaves – in the Deep South and the West – often meant an encounter with terror. Members of the White privilege class could never understand what this must have been like.

Yes, matters are different sinceTrump took office. The racist hellions afoot believe they have his tacit approval to harass and threaten Blacks, Mexicans, Muslims – non-Aryans. But, there is a danger that the resurgent evil from an iniquitous past could be met with evil this time if it is not turned back and buried beneath the ol’ woodshed.

At any time there could be a tipping point — one White supremacist murder too many or another cop-killing under the color of authority that could spark reprisals. It is possible. A random shooting spree could happen and spiral out of control – something White supremacists have been advocating.

No one wants to see this. It would be reprehensible. Many innocent people would be hurt. No one would be safe.
