Here We Go Again


Another victim claimed violence at the hand of someone from the minority community only to have it turn out to be a LIE! There’s a long line of  people who claimed some black person did them great bodily harm and I  agree with Dr. Jeff Gardere’s assessment that fixing the blame on fictitious black people is a part of the Black Bogeyman phenomenon that says whites and society at large must fear angry black people who are intent on doing everyone they come into contact with great bodily harm.  I’m not so sympathetic to insist the behavior of falsely ascribing victim status on one’s self is a personal mental disease; the larger society cannot escape the role it plays in allowing someone to think such behavior is plausible.  Bethany Storro, the victim turned perpetrator, belongs in a jail that offers mental health services.
