There are certain things that White people cannot stand about Black people. I mean a certain type of White person (like me), and of course I refer to a certain type of Black person. I realize that there are now “Whites” who think this kind of Black behavior is cool. This morning, I had my windows open (bad idea). I heard “kids fighting” outside my window. It went on and on for way too long. There was an unpleasant aura of menace about it. You don’t hear this sort of vibe around here much because Mexicans don’t act like this unless it is groups of teens or young men (gang types) fighting or menacing each other. Believe it or not, that’s a rather rare occurrence here. And that only happens at night, usually around 8-10 PM. Finally my curiosity got the better of me, in part because I worried they were yelling epithets at me (due to the menacing sound of the talk). I went to the window, and it was nothing. Two young Black women, apparently single Moms or babysitting for kids. One Black single Mom with an elementary school girl who was beating up on a much younger elementary school boy. Another Black woman holding the baby. The women yelling at and chasing the kids, on and on. Everyone speaking in a very loud tone of voice, much too loud. Everyone seemed happy. They were acting normal. The problem was they were acting like animals. I shook my head and left. Later, I heard more “fighting.” It had the same vibe about it, an aura of menace combined with way too loud voices and the sound of people arguing or fighting. Once again, I was alarmed by the menacing vibes and went to check. I was surprised to find a young Black woman and a young Black man, both in their 20’s. The man had a pit bull with him. From the sound of their way too loud voices and the tone, it seemed like an argument. It took just a bit for me to figure out that this was apparently a pleasant conversation between friends! Once again, it was just Black people acting normal. Once again, the problem is that they were acting like animals. Alpha Unit, my co-author, calls Blacks like these “Underclass Blacks.” Others call them “low class Blacks”or “ghetto Blacks.” I don’t have a problem with those characterizations. I realize that not all Blacks act this way, and that there are now millions like her and our commenters who act more like me than these Underclass folks. Some of my Black commenters seem to hate Underclass Blacks more than I do. I don’t necessarily hate them; they’re repellent, and I want to avoid them. Plus they remind me of wild animals, and I’m an animal lover. And there is something pitiful about them. However, I’m not sure about the usual Black rejoinder that plenty of Whites act this way too. But they don’t, you see. Sure, there are Whites who act bad, but they act bad more or less in “White ways.” There are almost zero Whites who habitually act the way that these Blacks above do. Not even wiggers. Sure, Whites shit-talk, but they do it to fight, not to be normal, happy and friendly. For all I know, this is a Black thing. This is one of those things about Blacks that we Whites really don’t like! It’s as if it’s a direct refutation of everything that White culture is about. I call this meaninglessly loud and menacing behavior “the casual violence of everyday life” among Underclass Blacks. It’s part of their quotidian existence, like shaving or getting out of bed. So normal it’s almost boring.
