Fear Of A Black Planet

I don't know why so many suburbanites spend their days spewing hatred in the comments section. I don't know why they bother. I admit they amuse me. They're people who never actually visit the city but who are obsessed with the idea that it's a post-apocalyptic urban nightmare, where roving bands of black men will skin you alive the instant you step over an invisible border into the wrong neighborhood.

But I've realized this horribly racist view is sincere. They really do believe that young black men are all super-predators, that there are places in the city where you will be instantly killed. All young black men are actually supervillains.

And the cops believe this, too.
