A word about the Darius Simmons sitch

I'll keep it brief and obvious:  John Henry Spooner is a racist shithead.  That sort of goes without saying, and it's already being said all over the nets.  But what's not being said is this simple truth: if Darius and his mother really were the type of POC Spooner fantasized they were, not only would Darius still be alive, but Spooner would've been the one to pack his shit and move.  Not only would they have stolen his guns, but also shot him with them.

I'm not surprised this wizened piece of shit thought it was cool to blow a hole in a 13-year-old kid, in front of his mother no less.  I wasn't at all shocked.  Spooner didn't hop in his ride, drive downtown, and go after Ray-Ray, D-Rock, or Tyrone and 'em.  Naw...the big, gun-totin' bad-ass, with his mighty big set of onions, took out little Darius from next door.

For the white folks who are trying to downplay or dismiss this in anyway...you really shouldn't.  It's not a good look on you, and it speaks volumes.

    You know what, I say let them continue to do so. Because I need to see their true colors.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

    And he knew there's a good chance he'd get away with it, that's why he did that shit.

  3. They're already trying to excuse this miserable excuse for a human being:

    "This is irrational enough that I suspect it to be connected to the age of the shooter, 75. I suspect Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Sometimes those conditions develop into paranoia and aggression. I know two men of this age who had to be institutionalized because they started to strike their wives, who were caring for them."

    "Doesn't bare any comparison to the George Zimmerman case."

    "I don't know enough about this particular crime to say anything about it, although as described it is shocking and heart rending.

    However regardless of what happened there, the suggestion that it's part of a wider problem of racist violence against black people in America doesn't hold water when the crime statistics are looked at."

    I can't.

    1. I don't know about anybody else, but every time I read these types of comments from some of these people, I get the sneaking suspicion that if every POC, especially Black people, were wiped off the face of this country, not too many people would be upset by it. This is the new ere of lynching. SMDH.

    They are basically advocating for white men to get away with killing any black male teen they feel like, without evidence or provocation even though the youth lives in their neighborhood yet we are the ones depicted as violent. This is nothing short of modern day lynching. It speaks volumes about their character and true nature.

    It's nothing short of whiteness gone insane. If this had been a white child, they would cast Spooner's soul into the bowels of hell in no time. But since this was a black child, they would have the audacity to defend him. This proves how much black life is "valued" in society.

    What's sad is that there will be more victims like Simmons because this uncivilized nation will allow it to continue without so much as uttering a word about this nation's pathology of racism.

      I am reminded of an exchange between Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer’s Aunt Sally regarding an incident on a steamboat. The subsequent explosion results in the death of a black person.

      "...It warn't the grounding -- that didn't keep us back but a little. We blowed out a cylinder-head."
      "Good gracious! anybody hurt?"
      "No'm. Killed a nigger."
      "Well, it's lucky; because sometimes people do get hurt
      .”

      The character’s total disregard for black life in contrast to white is the same as it is today. Not much has changed and not much will change until the white man is relieved of his privilege. However, we have to let some of these stories go there way for our own sake. For such accounts (publicized daily in the media) can be detrimental to a person of color’s peace and health. Frankly I don’t know which is worse; one white man killing a black man in a blatant act of racism, or one black man killing multiple blacks in a blatant act of self-hatred and thuggery. Both crimes are an affront to the human condition and worthy of damnnation. “For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God's laws.”

      That’s why we shouldn’t marvel too much if this white man gets a pass. For like the characters in Huckleberry Finn, whites are just being true to their nature. Therefore I’m grateful for Blogs such as these; for they lend voice to our frustrations. Such frustrations (if not expressed) have the potential of shortening our very lives; because racism takes a tremendous toll on our physical and mental well-being. It’s an insidious form of bigotry that turns hatred towards white supremacy inward; resulting in black-on-black violations of the worst sort.

    1. Nah. That would require Spooner having something resembling a soul to begin with.

  7. I am between a middle finger, some guns, and a roots marathon. These people are monsters in every sense of the word. That low life killed and 13-year-old boy on suspicious of grand dilusions. Things like this get annoying why can't our children just be children? Whoever chooses to support this man or back him up like the idiots do zimmerman need to be dragged and beaten. I feel for the mother and the police need to be fired without pay. White people are really showing their behinds in 2012, including Paltrow and her N-word situation.
