With a disproportional number of black men in prison, the cycle of violence really has not been broken since slavery days. Whites violate blacks in so many hidden ways, that the fear of retaliation for the wrongness is squeezed into a systematic, subconscious projection of black as predator. That IS the race card why we whites use it to cry foul whenever it gets played – we cannot admit the obvious without our house of cards come tumbling down.
