Elon James White On Michael Dunn Partial Verdict

Michael Dunn of Florida was convicted of three counts of second degree murder after firing at vehicle inhabited by four black teens following a dispute about loud music. The judge declared a mistrial on the count of first-degree murder in the death of Jordan Davis, 17. Speaking on This Week In Blackness, Elon James White alludes to the "Stand Your Ground" laws and sardonically states about the murder, "Maybe it was justified because, you know, the negroes, they are kind of scary. I mean, how screwed up is that? Our American citizenship as blacks is predicated on the safety felt by whites. And all of our rights can be stripped with one word: 'Scared.' ...Because if people perceive a threat, then obviously they should be allowed to shoot you. So what if their perceptions are colored through hundreds of years of stereotypes and misinformation?" Watch:
