I think critical to the psychology of normalizing race hatred and the reason why when a Black child is murdered and left bleeding in the street there are no empathetic tears from majorities in American society. Group guilt has been the method of internalizing racism in the minds of the American people for hundreds of years. It is systemic amongst the American populace that any nefarious story about a black man anywhere is somehow assigned to Black men and women everywhere.

White racist and corporate interests have learned to propagate Group hate toward black life to control the masses and protect the privilege inherent within our racist capitalist system. Blacks cannot get momentum in changing white American hearts and minds about the truth of this nation's dirty little secret of the well-financed, disenfranchisement and debasement of our citizenry because many are so easily distracted and misled by the people inherent in the group identification of perpetual racism.
