White people often do not understand white people.

Granted, that’s a counter-intuitive claim. But it is regularly reinforced whenever one hears decent white Americans attempt to rationalize the misbehavior of their less decent kin.

One such effort turned up on social media a few days ago. Walker Bragman, a freelance journalist for, among others, The Huffington Post, sought to explain why “far right and white nationalist groups” turn to violence. He tweeted what he said were images of the home of Joseph Morrison, one of the men recently arrested for plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The photos show a ramshackle yard strewn with junk. There are two trucks, both of which appear driveable, though one has damage to a side panel. Two flags droop from poles. One is the Stars and Bars.

“Can we acknowledge that maybe economic circumstances play a role in radicalizing people?” asks Bragman. In the face of skyrocketing job loss, he argues, “of course we’re going to see violence.” Bragman notes that, when asked about “violence in inner cites,” people “correctly point to economic conditions as a driving factor. But when it comes to militancy in rural America, they refuse to entertain a similar explanation.”

2. Holy gee fucking Keeeriist...

How do these ignorant racist m'fuckers NOT see the similarities between black & hispanic people screaming for equality.

Blacks typically earn 1/3 to 2/3 of whites. Hispanics labor in our crop fields for a minuscule percentage of what McDonald's workers earn.

WHY DO YOU THINK THEY'RE SCREAMING FOR JUSTICE?

Would you please get your heads out of your nether regions, open your minds to logical arguments, & PAY ATTENTION to the HUGE disparity in pay & benefits between white, uneducated, stupid, interbreeding, redneck fucking idiots, & those minorities who are working hard to give their children a future.

You give me a choice between a black or hispanic family trying to educate their children, or some illiterate, interbreeding redneck in Kentucky or S Carolina praising their ignorant racist rep or senator, you get ONE guess who I'll support.

I'm quickly running out of fucks to give!
