DAILYKENN.com -- A mob of black teens harassing and bullying white is not racist. Taking note of their aggressive, racist behavior is racist.
Who makes these rules? And why do we blindly comply?
A black security guard took not of the predatory behavior of a group of black teens. The guard sent an e-mail to that effect. All hell broke lose as efforts were made to douse the flare of reality before it becomes a raing fire of sanity.

On Tuesday, a security guard from Admiral Security Services sent an email to the group’s senior vice president of safety about a cluster of five black teenagers he suspected stole a woman’s phone a week before. The security guard described the group as “displaying behaviors indicative of predators” whose “target market” might be Caucasians.
The note estimated the teens were between ages 15 and 17 and described them as all wearing blue jeans and black hoodies or jackets.
Downtown Partnership then forwarded the email to members.
“This was classic racial profiling. You could have this in a course instruction on how to express implicit bias,” said John Nethercut, executive director of the Public Justice Center, which received the email. “My first reaction was I almost laughed because it was just so classic.”
Others who saw the message took to social media to express their outrage. Carol Ott, tenant advocacy director of the Fair Housing Action Center of Maryland, shared the email on Facebook and Twitter after it was sent to her.
“I thought it was disgusting because it’s obviously racial profiling,” she said. “I mean, when you talk about black children in terms of predators and scavengers, perhaps don’t do that. Common sense would tell you to not to that.”
