Study: Nation’s Blacks Increasingly Fearful of White Males 18-30
A new study finds African-Americans are increasingly fearful of suburban White males. In the study, conducted by the Pew Research Center, 65 percent of those surveyed responded favorably to the statement: ‘I, or my children, will likely meet their mortal end at the hands of a White male 18-30’.
The study focused on 30 to 55-year-old African-Americans living in urban centers.
“I’m not saying they’re all bad,” said 54-year-old Flint resident Delvon Gray, “I’ve met a few that are alright, but it just seems like most of them want take a bunch of anti-depressants and start shooting shit up once they turn 18.”
“What really scares me is that they do this to their own. They’re animals,” said 47-yeard-old Oakland resident Marsha Winters.
The study comes on the heels of an incredibly violent year for the White community:
–In Mt. Pleasant, MI, on Wednesday night, 30 year-old Eric Ramsey abducted, raped, and threatened to set on fire a Grand Rapids-area woman. After several clashes with police, Ramsey committed suicide.
–On December 14, 20-year-old Adam Lanza massacred 20 children and 7 adults in Newton, CT. Lanza also committed suicide.
–On July 20, 24-year-old James Holmes killed 12 people and injured 58 others at a movie theatre in Aurora, CO.
“I feel bad but recently a White family moved into our neighborhood with their 2-year-old son and my first thought was ‘How long till that kid buys a rifle and gets put on an SSRI?’” said Martin Melkari, a 31 year-old St. Louis resident.
72 percent of the survey’s respondents felt similarly, saying recent violence would ‘keep them away from predominantly White communities and schools’.
“Is it racist? Bigoted?” asked Bryan Sorros, a White Studies professor at Harvard University, “Probably. But these stereotypes are there for a reason. White families just don’t prep their kids for the soul-crushing reality that is life–or they just assume their kid is autistic.”
