This Kind of Hatred Does Not Spring Up Overnight

From the nature of the crime described in the video above, and other similar crimes -- including the Wichita Massacre in Kansas -- it is clear that many black Americans have been stewing in a deep pathological hatred of whites for a long time. When such rabid race haters are presented with an opportunity to act out their violent fantasies, some of them cannot resist.
With a 70% rate of illegitimacy nationwide, a large underclass that experiences perpetual academic and occupational failure, and with a popular culture steeped in a hip-hop overflowing with violent imagery, it is no wonder that such a large part of America's black community suffers from such pathological violence and hatred. American prisons are disproportionately full of black prisoners, despite the fact that in many cities a relatively small proportion of offenders actually go to prison.
Every time such a murder occurs, the national news media hastily throws up blackout curtains around the event, and refuses to investigate or cover such crimes. By refusing to expose the virulent hatred of outsiders that has become so endemic within the insular black community, the media shirks its duty to inform the public. A clear exposure of incidents of such rabid and inhuman violence would likely cause many young people around the country to be much more cautious about their own personal security -- both at home and when moving about, particularly after dark.
The hatred is endemic within the sub-culture, smoldering relatively harmlessly for the most part. Most blacks who also happen to be racists, do not commit racist crimes -- just as most Muslims who sympathize with violent jihad do not commit violent acts. But when an opportunity to act out the hatred presents itself, the insanity too easily springs forth into violent action.
Being aware of the magnitude of such focused hatred, and the locations where one is apt to encounter it, might save the lives of a significant number of sociologically naive persons. It would be nice if the mainstream media would do its job of providing important information about crimes and common public hazards. The failure of the media is putting a lot of innocent people in harm's way.
