Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

Nazi eugenicists frequently observed that their laws to bar Jewish-Aryan mating were more liberal than were American laws to separate people of African descent from the white genetic pool. Germans held that a person who was one-quarter Jewish was a legal Aryan and thus fit to marry a German, but parallel marriages and mating between whites and Black people were illegal in much of the United States and, in effect, punishable by death — lynching. The “one-drop” laws of many southern states counted anyone who had even one thirty-second African heritage as Black. Other laws, such as the 1924 Virginia Racial Integrity Act, denominated anyone with any “Negro blood” at all as Black. Editors of German medical journals learned a great deal about eugenic proscription by studying American medical journals, whose charts precisely detailed which racial mixtures were tolerable in marriages to whites, who was “white” enough to vote, and so on. In fact, a cordial rivalry characterized the relationship between German and American eugenicists: “The Germans are beating us at our own game,” Virginian eugenicist Dr. Joseph S. Dejarnette sighed in a thinly veiled admiration during a 1934 speech in which he urged the Virginia legislature to expand its sterilization laws.

Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.
