Here is a story that is getting far less traction than it should, there is an epidemic of suicide among white people. As I watch the bogus stories of Hillary Clinton “visiting” with the mother of Michael Brown as though he was such a martyred hero (instead of a thieving thug……. God rest his soul), I wonder what has happened to Darren Wilson. In case you don’t know, Darren Wilson is the cop Michael Brown would have killed if he did not fight back. This woman, Clinton, in her base desire to pander to even the criminal elements if it would land her body back in the White House sent a message to policemen and decent people everywhere”I will do anything to get where I want, everything”. Clinton met with a woman who, along with her latest man, further incited riots which destroyed her own home town along with the businesses and the futures of many in the black or white community. Michael Brown was no hero, but he had no up-bringing in how to live a life of integrity and decency. Mother, father, step-father et al, were all involved with the wrong side of the law. And they were not victims but victimize-rs. But they get a visit as though they were long suffering heroes. What message does this send? And I ask again whatever happened to the only innocent person here, Darren Wilson? Should he be wrongly vilified just because he is ……. white?
It seems to be the fashion to study extensively the epidemic of Black men and boys killing each other and openly assume it is “DA White man” who made them do it. White policemen are hesitant to enforce the law unless it is necessary lest they find themselves the center of a probe in which they will lose everything trying to defend themselves against heinous charges which might not even have any resemblance to the truth. It has become the custom of Liberal whites to get the upside down “V” look to their eyebrows when they encounter an altercation between a white and black. It is as if they are screaming ” Blacks and Hispanics are not responsible, WE must take care of them”….. this look says. They are as innocent as “pets”. That’s right, many Liberals and others view Black people or “others” (although not Asians) as though they are “pets”. No responsibility should be attributed to “others” – meaning anyone that is not “white”. It is a heck of a burden to put on the shoulders of people, most of whom do not have any culpability in the “slave trade” or other ills. And it is depressing.
Take a look at this: “Every single white person alive today is “complicit” in slavery, according to Assistant Professor of Humanities Adam Kotsko, and should kill themselves. Dr. Kotsko teaches at Shimer College in Chicago.” According to Dr. Kotsko, if you are white, and even if your ancestors never owned slaves, you are still complicit for it. When asked what white people should do because of it, Kotsko said whites “should commit mass suicide:”He then went on to say that “whiteness” exists only to “subordinate and exploit other races:”
So it is against this backdrop that no one is mentioning the fact that we have this perplexing question: “Why would the death rate for middle-aged non-Hispanic whites be increasing after decades of decline while rates for middle-aged blacks and Hispanics continue to fall?” The major causes of the excess deaths are suicides, drug abuse and alcoholism. In the past, drug abuse deaths were more common in middle-aged blacks than in middle-aged whites. Now they are more common in whites. The same pattern holds for deaths from alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. The suicide rate for whites was four times that of blacks.http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/03/insider/more-white-men-die-from-suicide-and-substance-abuse-why.html
Angela, you ask, why should you care? Because unlike a number of people, I do believe in equality. If this rise in suicide was detected in any other race, researchers would be dispatched and movements would be disrupting meetings to get to the bottom of this epidemic —- with someone blamed for the epidemic —- usually “DA white man”. The articles that I find on this subject tend to be very shallow, pointing vaguely to the “economy” or maybe “prescription drugs”. Most studies claim “the cause is not clear”. Maybe the researchers are following the tome of Dr. Kotsko.
Going back to the original story regarding the political pandering of the “front-runner” Hillary Clinton, one of the causes of this epidemic could quite well be the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness that accompanies the constant need to “self flagellate” over ills not responsible for. And when you combine this with the ordinary problems that beset the middle aged person which includes financial worries and such …. for some the pressure may be just too much to handle.
