Black v Brown Clashes -- Who Are the Racists Then?
CBS Los Angeles ^ | Sep 28, 2012 | CBS Los Angeles

VICTORVILLE (CBSLA.com) — Students at a high school in Victorville said violent fights have been breaking out between African-Americans and Latinos for the past two days. . . . .

SNIP

I need help from my fellow FReepers. I just cannot wrap my mind around this.

How do we apply the usual Liberal "racist" template to this event, when there are apparently no whites around to blame?

Who are the racists, here? The blacks? Or, the browns?

Or, are both equally racist -- or, since they are non- white, are they given a "get-out-of-all-charges-of-racism-free" cards, meaning that they are color blind and not racist at all.....

... Except that, if they were color blind, would they be fighting along color lines?

Hmmmm... Life can be so complicated sometimes. /sarc

Black v Brown Clashes -- Who Are the Racists Then?

The white and Oriental folks whose taxes pay for the schools—right?

Tribalism.

Used to be town and neighborhood or family or political loyalty.

As families disintegrate, and neighborhoods stratify, it resolves to ethnicity.

The institutional racism of the white power structure that marginalizes and oppresses minorities, pitting them against each other.

They’re both (understandably) frustrated because the white devil has left them few options and little or no chance for advancement. Therefore, they take out their frustrations the only way they know how - they fight.

I think that would be the typical brainsick liberal line of thinking.

Exactly, the media can explain this as the result of white racism, with their eyes shut, and one hand tied behind them.

Between black and brown, I say black. They seem to hate brown.
Liberals no matter the color.

I left California in 1979 - It was going on then - doubt it ever stopped.

Oh, and the Indonesians and blacks don’t like each other much either - another internal conflict for The Won?

That was a response to the headline.

This county is turning into a pest hole (like the rest of CA).

” Who are the true “racists” here?”

Sociologists. Blacks and Mexicans have been fighting one another long before anyone knew how to say “white power structure”, “marginalizes”, or “institutional racism”.

Besides, how can one race (white) be so thoroughly, genetically different, that they are inherently evil, wicked, racist, and everything else that the particular race is supposed to be, that makes it totally different from all other races, according to the left.

It doesn’t matter. (all of them. literally) Here is what does matter. Keep yourself & your loved ones as safe as possible & try to stay out of the way. (I’m sure that’s obvious, though)

I hope the “blame Whitey” is snark.

I tend not to look to place blame for this situation. Like a good mushmind, I “celebrate” diversity. Every time I read where these non-evolved erectus have taken a few more of each other out, I celebrate.

If G Zimmerman is any indicator, the blacks will have the high race card.

Of course to believe that card has value any more you must be high.

Mexicans, as a whole, despise black people. It is a big dirty secret that the lefties like to hush up.

Our premise is faulty. If “white” is anywhere in the premise, then the definition of racism forwards the fault to a non-logical conclusion. Redefine the premise that racism is not about color. Racism is about “difference.” Now apply the definition and it works under any set of circumstances.

To be racist is to be normal. To not be racist is abnormal. The natural human condition is racial conflict. At times, the conflict becomes violent.

The attempt to make racism political breaks down when subjected to reality. The reality of the political fiction is shown by the instance in question where genetic and economic forces conflict. Co exist, the mantra and bumper sticker, has no reality in the unrestrained real world.

Yes they do.

One thing I had to get my mind around when I lived in New Mexico was the fights between the Hispanics and Mexicans....try explaining that to your average person.

I’d like to place a bet on the Browns for the win. Oh, racists - Blacks of course. But the Browns will win in the end.
