This Comic Sums Up the Double Standard Used to Excuse White Violence

Recommended Posts

On Saturday night, a group of armed militia members seized control of the remote headquarters building for the federally owned Malheur National Wildlife Refuge outside of Burns, Oregon. Their ranks include Ammon Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who successfully held off Bureau of Land Management agents attempting to collect his cattle over unpaid taxes last year in a similar standoff.

They've earned only a tepid response from authorities so far, and the Bundys' previous armed rallies earned widespread support, leading some to conclude the mostly-white militants are benefiting a racial and political double standard. Just last week, a Cleveland police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice, a young black boy holding a toy gun, was let off without an indictment despite opening fire within seconds of arriving at Rice's location.
