It’s not a “race war.” It’s white people killing unarmed black civilians, justfying the killings to each other, and encouraging other whites to do the same.
Whites erupting in violence against black people happens here every few decades.
White people get scared or pissed off about something. They start killing black people. Black people object so whites kill or hang or roast or drown MORE Black people to teach the Black people who objected to the first killings a lesson.
The fever breaks when the underlying conditions for white people improve: usually they steal more wealth from blacks or foreigners and that makes them feel better.
Then, the whites who didn’t directly participate in the killings, but didn’t do a damn thing to stop them, feel kinda bad and pass a new law and promise to “never go back” or whatever.
The whites who did the murders seemingly go underground but really take up new power positions.
A few decades later, their children, who missed out on the last round of killings but now faced reduced opportunities because of the disastrous choices of their parents whose white power economic theories never really work, decide it’s time for more killings.
White people right now are in the midpoint of this cycle: they’ve gotten a taste of the power and machismo of killing blacks, but haven’t fully committed to the 2 or 3 day “teaching blacks a lesson” murder spree.
It’s coming though. You see what they’re doing with this vigilante teen, you see what they do tonight with their “convention” and if you know anything about the history of White people, you know it’s coming. You know what they’re going to do next.
