"Reverse Racism": A Sad Misnomer for a Tragic Mississippi Murder

by: Terry Keleher, ColorLines | News Analysis 16 August 2011
Last week, The New York Times reported that a relative has come to the defense of Deryl Dedmon, a white teenager who is being charged with murder for his alleged role in beating and then driving his truck over James Craig Anderson, a 49-year-old black man.
The gruesome incident took place in Jackson, Miss., in late June and was caught on video by a security camera monitoring the parking lot where the attack took place. It burst into national headlines when CNN aired the video last week. Hinds County Prosecutor Robert Shuler Smith is expected to bring hate crime charges against Dedmon. He was among a group of white teens allegedly involved in beating Anderson while repeatedly yelling racial epithets, including “White Power!” according to witnesses. Smith has asked for federal assistance in investigating the crime,according to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, and is exploring charges against additional teens allegedly involved in the incident. One other teen, John Rice, has been charged with simple assault.
On a Facebook page set up by Dedmon’s supporters, the teen’s great aunt said, “He is not a racist or a murderer…. If anything, he is being tried by the media, suffering from reverse racism and placed in jail without bond. I am sick of the race card.”
More than 500 people marched in Jackson on Sunday to denounce the crime and memorialize Anderson.

With this recasting of the story, the alleged white murderer is now the victim, the perpetrator is the media, and the crime is “reverse racism.” And anyone suspecting racist foul play is recklessly playing the race card.
If your head is spinning, welcome to the Orwellian world of so-called post-racialism, where the new racists are people of color, along with anyone who still sees or speaks about racism. The new victims of racism are always white. Any effort to redress racism is itself racist...
For further evidence of systemic racial inequality, look at any key quality-of-life indicator in the U.S., from infant mortality to life expectancy and everything in between. Whether it’s household income and wealth, home ownership or health care access, educational attainment or employment, it’s all racially skewed. Any one of these glaring disparities is serious enough, but taken together—the cumulative and compounding impacts—they point to an organized and ongoing system of racial inequality.
So when it comes to the dubious concept of “reverse racism,” I’m a literalist. “Reverse” means to go in the opposite direction. So in my book, “reverse racism” means reversing all the damages of racism. Only problem is, racism, once it has occurred, can’t truly be reversed.
How do you give someone back his or her life? How do you give people back their stolen land, their foreclosed homes, their precious health or the wealth lost by their exploited labor? Don’t get me wrong, there’s still plenty to do about the racism that’s already gone down. We can and should strive for racial reconciliation and reparations. We should force predatory lenders to return the goods to their rightful owners. We should support affirmative action and equitable policies to help level the playing field of access and opportunity. And we should bring people to justice for racial crimes, past and present.
But remedying racism cannot be confused with reversing it. Sadly and soberingly, “reversing racism,” much like “post-racialism,” is just not possible. To talk about either is delusional and disingenuous. There’s too much water, and blood, under the bridge.

If her nephew is such angel,why is he on camera beating a black man? This shows that contrary to the belief of some, racism is alive and well in America.When you look through history, particularly here in this country, you see the same methods,games and behaviors enacted by whites. What is particularly disturbing is the lackadaisical manner some claim innocence in spite of damning evidence, and claim we are using the race card when we call their hate crime what it is, a hate crime.

Peace!

"Reverse Racism": A Sad Misnomer for a Tragic Mississippi Murder

On a Facebook page set up by Dedmon’s supporters, the teen’s great aunt said, “He is not a racist or a murderer…. If anything, he is being tried by the media, suffering from reverse racism and placed in jail without bond. I am sick of the race card.”

It is expected and not surprising at all that the great aunt of a racist murderer is a dillusional racist witch herself.

This man had already warned police and school officials that Daryl Dedmon might one day kill someone. http://www.wapt.com/news/28422239/detail.html

Does anyone have a link to the facebook page set up by Dedmon's supporters? I looked for it and found a couple that condemn him, but I couldn't find the one that supports him.

To actually see these devils try and rationalize what their devil seeds did, goes to show why they're "devils" in my book....you can try and believe "devil" don't exist all you want......but what i've seen and see with this genetic sun cursed pale ghost amongst my people is a "devil".....period!
