The Washington Post is usually squeamish about reporting on black mob violence. But at least one of its contributors is not.
That is how we learned the reason why a group of 12 black people robbed and murdered a man at a Washington Metro station in November.
Otherwise, it could have been like the T-shirt says: Its a black thing. You wouldnt understand.
Before we get to the The Root article to explain it all from an African-American perspective, lets turn to the U.S. Attorney for a few details of this lethal episode of racial violence.
It was a Friday night. And 12 black people from Maryland decided they were going to rob someone. An iPhone if they could. But with 12 people to share the loot, no one pretended this was just about money.
So they set out for a night of mayhem from the Metro Station in Hyattsville, Md.: Squirrel, J.R. Vez, Man Man, Isaiah, A.W., D.T. and others whose names we do not know because they are charged as juveniles. Squirrel had the gun.
First they needed a soft target. The Adams Morgan entertainment district of the nations capital had the two necessary advantages: Public transportation and a plethora of affluent victims that would not fight back.

“We must try to understand the context that produced it. It isnt simply that these young black men are evil. In so many ways, we have failed them. I am not absolving them of their responsibility for the crime. I am simply holding us responsible for the world that produced them.
Umm.....not sure if I agree with that.
I don’t buy that apologist garbage at all.
So they were from Maryland, not DC. I wonder which county.
Some say we’ll be like Greece. I think USA might have some very unique problems with these thugs around if they don’t get their welfare check?
WE didn’t fail crap the Black community has failed it’s own!
I am absolutely sure that I don't agree with it.
if this is true, this excuse can be used by everyone. which makes it entirely meaningless.
Am I to assume the victim is white?
Oh so all this violence is just cathartic for oppressed blacks?
Per the Metro map, there's an easy transfer point from the Green Line (Prince George's County) at Fort Totten, to the Red Line (Woodley Park - Adams Morgan).
Here in the SF Bay Area, BART is known for being a conduit for crime, unfortunately. Anecdotally I've seen a spike in problems on the "spare the air" days when pubic transit was offered free of charge. I think some management types decided "spare the air" was good, but better when disengaged from the offer of a free bus or BART ride.
the writer assumes blacks couldn’t take care of themselves. how....racist of the author. blacks were just fine as a community before the great welfare state run, expanded, and preserved, by white liberals and black socialists, destroyed their culture by removing black men from the house and destroying the black family. now we have feral packs of fatherless males and baby making welfare mamas as the norm for the “black culture” in urban areas.
No shortage of black racist crime against whites though
Been an issue in my world since early 80s
Dumb whitebread hipsters seem to have just caught on
Must be a yankee preachy thing
Our moderates have most come back to FR....skunks they are
Nowhere to anti freep
Bet they hate this whole notion

Go to hell, Eddie. People who “think” like you are a huge part of the problem. Flippin’ moron.
You should write him or email him.
You are absolutely right.
People who excuse these predators because they are black, and make up excuses for them by saying WE have failed them are a great part of the problem.
There are thousands of them and they are all Obama voters.
White guilt. Anyone without white guilt is considered a racist.
Zimbabwe, South Africa........we’re right behind ya!
Be careful. Everytime I mention Zimbabwe or Robert Mugabe I am labeled a racist.
The media protects and coddles criminals because it is on their side and approves of what they do.
Proving once again that people like old Bedford Forrest were correct.
When I first saw the name “Olijawon,” I thought of Akeem “The Dream” Olajiwan (sp), a member of the University of Houston’s “Phi Slama Jamma” the NCAA Basketball Champs in about 1984. He was a Moslem from Nigeria.
-——In so many ways, we have failed them-——
Correct....... had they been aborted, killed in the womb, they could not turn themselves into thieves and murderers.
I can tell you right now I don’t agree with it. “We failed them”? That’s right-—these uncivilized black thugs make their own choices and terrorize society, but God forbid we lay the blame on one of the cherished victim groups. The blame lies with the thugs and with their mothers, who irresponsibly mated and got pregnant, and neglected their upbringing.
I’ve spoken elsewhere about an altercation I recently had with a black woman. She had a boy with her, about ten years old, I would say. When I initiated conversation with the woman about damage the boy did to my car, he opened up his mouth as wide as he could and HOWLED in my face. Like a toddler throwing a fit, but this kid was way too old for that. And he just kept shrieking, loudly, until the woman pushed him into her car.
I’ve never seen anything like it. The kid was absolutely feral...like he was raised by wolves. He will grow up and prey on society. And no one better try and tell me I’m responsible for it.

A friend of mine that teaches on a North Jersey welfare reservation has had students who would refer to a book as “that” (with pointing) or “that thing”; they were in second grade, and had never seen a book in their home.
Welfare reform is slowly turning their neighborhoods into barrios, but it isn’t happening fast enough. My company has whole departments where they make up their “diversity quotas” with Hispanics (who happen to be decent workers); blacks have become increasingly marginalized and quarantined in their housing projects due to this unfettered immigration.
The article said “Hyattsville” station. I used to live in Hyattsville, Prince Georges County, so the writer probably meant the West Hyattsville station or possibly PG Plaza station. We would go out of our way to use the College Park (UMD) station just to avoid waiting for trains at the other two stations. Even though we could walk to the PG Plaza station, we would drive to College Park. We almost never went to the mall at PG Plaza, and I think we used the West Hyatsville station twice in the 10 years we lived there.
Rahel Tesfamariam, isn’t that an Ethiopian name? Ethiopians are no more “African-American” than are those of Boer descent.
I don’t care what their circumstances or origin might be. I won’t see them as a victim, and I want them to pay the full price of their crimes. Preferably by being hanged from the nearest light post.
You nailed it.
It isnt simply that these young black men are evil. In so many ways, we have failed them.
We? Who the hell is we? Are you assigning collective guilt? Thought that was a no-no? So when we speak of black crime or black pathologies in general, we are supposed to look at the people involved as individuals not the collective group. BUT when trying to explain these very same issues by not holding the individuals responsible and certainly not blacks themselves, placing collective blame is okey-dokie when trying to blame whitey.
victim of this black lynch mob was black
This over edumacated numbskull also has a Yale U Divinity degree. She is of Ethiopian origin. Million of unemployed in America but this dope has a secure gig as pontificator at the Washington Post
