Larry Nassar sexually abused 156 little girls. And it is widely considered and agreed those girls entire lives have been affected by this abuse. These girls will some day grow up and have children. Some of them will be abusive to their children because they will still be struggling to resolve what happened to her as a child . As that happens we will not see assholes online posting about Apparent Emotionally Troubled, Suicidal, Homicidal White American Citizens. But not some dumb black folk. A young black girl is constantly traumatized by racism as she grows up in a nation that says everything about her is bad and ugly. These girls will some day grow up and have children. Some of them will be abusive to their children because they will still be struggling to resolve what happened to her as a child. Instead of recognizing that racism caused this and how racism is an abusive behavior so she will face the same lifelong struggle as the white girl who was sexually abused, she gets blamed by dumb ass black idiots and racist whites for being the reason why things are wrong in the black communiy. Racism is Abuse “Abuse is a form of mistreatment by one individual that causes harm to another person.” National Adult Protective Services Association We have taken a look at many of the issues, excuses, denials, avoidance, fake grievances and opinions from many types of white people. But what do people think racism is? There have been several definitions of racism over time. What racism is seems to depend on your race or ideology. For blacks, most nonwhites and non-racist whites the term is defined as a belief in the superiority of your race. Yet to certain whites, racism is anything negatively said about whites, even if it’s historically documented fact. But let us go beyond this definition because it limits racism and makes it out to be a simple matter that can easily be overcome by simply ignoring the racist behavior and that it has no impact upon those it is imposed upon. Racism is a form of abusive behavior based upon the belief in the superiority of you race. This abuse involves, physical, psychological, emotional, plus there were especially in the past, sexual abuse. “Bryant-Davis and Ocampo (2005) noted similar courses of psychopathology between rape victims and victims of racism. Both events are an assault on the personhood and integrity of the victim. Similar to rape victims, race-related trauma victims may respond with disbelief, shock, or dissociation, which can prevent them from responding to the incident in a healthy manner. The victim may then feel shame and self-blame because they were unable to respond or defend themselves, which may lead to low self-concept and self-destructive behaviors. In the same study, a parallel was drawn between race-related trauma victims and victims of domestic violence. Both survivors are made to feel shame over allowing themselves to be victimized. For instance, someone who may have experienced a racist incident may be told that if they are polite, work hard, and/or dress in a certain way, they will not encounter racism. When these rules are followed yet racism persists, powerlessness, hyper vigilance, and other symptoms associated with PTSD may develop or worsen (Bryant-Davis & Ocampo, 2005).” Monnica T. Williams Ph.D. Racism must be looked upon this way if there is ever going to be a true and logical reduction in the behavior. This is mainly due to white refusal to accept that certain behaviors done by nonwhites are caused by white racism. But if you study abuse, it has been shown that specific types of abuse can cause different types of behaviors ether positive or negative. We must go beyond the simpleton view of racism which has been largely manufactured by whites to allow them to escape the reality of the complete damage whites have done to those they imposed the system of white supremacy upon. Racism includes and has included these things: Emotional/Psychological abuse Financial abuse Physical abuse Sexual abuse Verbal abuse Spiritual abuse There has been tremendous psychological damage caused to nonwhites because of the racist policies and individual actions by whites in America and worldwide. But what some whites seem to think is that racism is simple and that it carries no psychological consequences to those who are the victims of it. And they do so because they see nonwhites coping the best way they can with it. Secondly, they tend to look at things from only the white perspective, meaning that when they see blacks acting violent they look at it from the white perspective meaning they never factor in the damage at every level caused by past and continuing white racism. “On occasion, the emotional weight of racism can lead African Americans to engage in maladaptive coping, such as remaining in denial, engaging in substance use, aggression, self-blame – even in extreme cases suicide (i.e., Black Lives Matter activist Marshawn McCarrel) and terrorism (i.e., Dallas shooter Micah Xavier Johnson). These responses are harmful and lead to negative, long-term consequences.” Monnica T. Williams Ph.D. It is important to understand these realities. If not, then eventually you are going to end up with a chain of black and other nonwhite mass killers because people ignore the psychological damage created by racism.
