12. What a bizarre scenario
Sadly, it seems you went from one racist extreme to the other...

Your first thought was that you were victimized, not by a criminal, but by a black criminal, therefore all blacks must be bad. You were actually scared of black people.

Now, apparently, you've come to your senses and you try to rationalize the whole incident by claiming he might have been desperate for a fix, or he had some urgent economic need! Would you have considered that possibility if the guy who robbed you was white? You go on and make it even worse with nonsense about "stereotypical misperceptions of potential white employers".

Is it so hard to believe you were robbed by a criminal who violated your rights and should be in jail? Does it have to be about race with you?
