The racial battleground of St. Louis is continuing to heat up—and Whites are still not wanting to show up.
That hasn’t stopped it from coming to them. On Sunday, Black protesters once again popped up at a sporting event attended by Whites to demand justice for “gentle giant” Michael Brown. This time they felt like they could get away with more and were far more aggressive when dealing with Whites. They were partially right.
Several Whites were assaulted and one White even received a load of spit in his face. Another White was beaten when he tried to wrangle an American flag away from the gang of protesters. It sounds like a very one-sided fight, but you wouldn’t think so from the local headline of “Rams fans and protesters brawl after game.” But even the local news spin on the story couldn’t hide the fact that these were Blacks attacking Whites due to racial animosity. Even trying to rationalize waving the flag upside down as a patriotic act fell flat on the part of this TV station.
That’s why the national media (outside of a few conservative outlets) didn’t pick up the story, while they ran with the “confrontation” at last week’s Cardinals game. There, enough Whites challenged the protesters for the media to call it an “ugly” episode of racial prejudice. It also helped that the protesters just kept dancing and shouting, instead of punching and spitting.
They also didn’t have the frankness to declare “Fuck all of you White motherfuckers!”
Whether the Whites of St. Louis like it or not, a racial fight is showing up at their doorstep. Repeating “Let’s go Rams!” won’t make it disappear. This is a good thing though. Whites can’t escape into sports from the brutal reality facing their city. Having to witness aggressive and hateful protesters might convince some of these Whites to wake up. We’re not all unhyphenated Americans who get angry seeing the Stars and Stripes inverted.
The image of the lone White guy getting beaten with an upside-down flag by a Black mob is the image of White America’s relationship with the country they call home. White America is under assault by non-Whites hordes—all the while those hordes use the foundations of the nation White America loves to justify their attacks. Almost everything wrong with modern America is visualized in this one picture.
That’s why all Whites should see it. Black America understands this country is a joke. It’s time for Whites to share the same view.
With that in mind, the racial tension in St. Louis is only increasing and Blacks in the area are radicalizing en masse to an extent we haven’t seen since the late 60s. It’s up in the air how this will affect Whites. I’m becoming more optimistic that a sizable portion might radicalize as well.
Otherwise, the battle will remain like this county council meeting.
