This was a very tragic event that happened in my hometown today. So far, it looks like this black man was frustrated about his job and they were giving him a hard way to go. Sounds all too familiar these days, but always ignored. There was a time when they would primarily mess with conscious black men mostly. I see they are also finally getting around to those who usually get along with or prefer whites. These are the ones who would say very little when the white system came down on you. I always knew the storm would be headed their way eventually. The thing is, when the system comes down on these types, they seem to be more likely to snap on everybody, and they don't mind taking a few blacks with them unfortunately. John Muhammad (DC Sniper), Christopher Doner, and Aaron Alexis all seem to fit this category. Doner was the only one that tried to at least address this issue while he snapped. Perhaps he addressed it a little too late, which I guess mean they would have come after him that much earlier...no win situation. But just because you may not fit the category of any of these black men, don't be surprise at what may have went through your mind if you ever went through what these men did.

I'm not saying I condone these mens actions, but it's time we stop spending so much time calling these men cowards along with the white media, although they did handle things messed up, with Doners style however still leaving plenty of controversy. I remember how I kept hearing all these sisters bad mouthing him, not interested in hearing why he did what the did. I was in Doners situation, just like many black people find themselves in. So I could relate to what he was going through on his job. After hearing so many fellow black people choosing to focus on Doners actions, and not the racism he was facing that cost him his job, you can't help but to think that what happen today was already in the making. This time it may have been aimed at more black people, leaving them with nothing to say this time.

My point is, we as black people better stop sleeping on this topic. We know that losing a job today isn't like loosing a job in the past. This is a Depression, plus we're black. Taking a black mans job over nothing so he can't feed himself or his family is unacceptable. And taking a young black mans job over nothing so he can't feed himself or ever have a wife or family is just as unacceptable.

Apparently, homie was into serious depression and on med.s. Took a shot gun and opened fire. Then took weapons off the people he killed.

We need a mental health system!

Whom black did Doner kill?

Doner was the only one that tried to at least address this issue while he snapped. Perhaps he addressed it a little too late, which I guess mean they would have come after him that much earlier...no win situation. But just because you may not fit the category of any of these black men, don't be surprise at what may have went through your mind if you ever went through what these men did.
I read Doner's entire "manifesto." I didn't see where he went through anything worse than any other black person. :10500:

I'm not saying I condone these mens actions, but it's time we stop spending so much time calling these men cowards along with the white media, although they did handle things messed up, with Doners style however still leaving plenty of controversy.

What blacks called ANY of these men "cowards?"

What "controversy" did Doner's "style" evoke?

I'm not feeling ANY of the quoted passage. :10500:

I remember how I kept hearing all these sisters bad mouthing him, not interested in hearing why he did what the did. I was in Doners situation, just like many black people find themselves in. So I could relate to what he was going through on his job. After hearing so many fellow black people choosing to focus on Doners actions, and not the racism he was facing that cost him his job, you can't help but to think that what happen today was already in the making.

Interesting. Everything I heard was "hahaha - that's what you get for messing with black people!" I heard no "sisters" bad-mouthing Doner, at all. As for what he was facing, yea, typical Black Experience stuff. And like others who believe in assimilation, thus have no black-centered philosophy to guide them, he "snapped" when he found out it was a lie.

My point is, we as black people better stop sleeping on this topic. We know that losing a job today isn't like loosing a job in the past. This is a Depression, plus we're black. Taking a black mans job over nothing so he can't feed himself or his family is unacceptable. And taking a young black mans job over nothing so he can't feed himself or ever have a wife or family is just as unacceptable.

I agree. :10200:
