And White people kill other White people more than they do Black people. The theme of this article is systemic racism, not crime. The average Black person won’t be killed by another Black person, but they will have to spend their lives battling systemic racism, being wary of the police, and dealing with a society that values them less than White people. Meanwhile, any "racism" White people endure will likely do little more than hurt their feelings. Perhaps if your interaction with Black people ran deeper than commenting on Medium, you’d understand that.

As for the "clickbait" photo, it’s a reflection of the segment of the White population that feels under attack by a "pandemic of anti-White negativity." These are the same kinds of people who launched the so-called "White Pride" movement, Whites who felt they had to protect their standing in the face of Black Pride and, more recently, Black Lives Matter. Whether you want to associate with them, you live in the same neighborhood. You don’t have to carry a sign to make the same point. Your comment speaks for itself.

Comments like yours underscore the points I make in my articles. I can always count on readers like you.
