White Americans have a criminal history; they have a criminal nation. The nation is built on criminality and murder and exploitation. It is a part of their collectible psyche. The United States is a mafia government. No one has done more damage and degradation and murder, rape, and robbery than Europeans. Therefore, in order to escape confrontation with their true criminal nature they must accuse others of being criminals. What we call projection. They must become obsessed with the criminality of other people. And Black folk become those other people.
"You call the Indians savages, so you can behave toward them savagely." That’s the function of stereotyping. If I call you a criminal, then I can treat you criminally. "I don’t owe you justice. In fact, shooting you in the street is justice. We know you’re already a criminal, why should we bother to take you to trial?"
