The continued public assault on black people, particularly black men, by the white public and by the police predates the pandemic and will outlast it.
This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic. Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted. This was not innocent nor benign nor divorced from historical context.
Throughout history, white women have used the violence of white men and the institutions these men control as their own muscle. From the beginning, anti-black white terrorists used the defense of white women and white purity as a way to wrap violence in valor. Carnage became chivalry. We often like to make white supremacy a testosterone-fueled masculine expression, but it is just as likely to wear heels as a hood. Particularly in the post-Civil War era, when slavery had been undone, white male politicians used the fear of rape of white women by black men to codify racial terror.
The jezebel stereotype
As Dr. Indeed, untold s of lynchings were executed because white women had claimed that a black man raped, assaulted, talked to or glanced at them. But it goes even further than that. The Tulsa Race massacre, the destruction of Black Wall Street, was spurred by an incident between a white female elevator operator and a black man.

The all-white, all-male jury deliberated for only 10 minutes before finding Stinney guilty, and he was sentenced to death. He was just 5 feet 1 inch tall.
A few years ago, the woman admitted to an author that she had lied. Indeed, when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on that bus, she said that she was thinking of Till.
This practice, this exercise in racial extremism, has been dragged into the modern era through the weaponizing ofoften by white women, to invoke the power and force of the police who they are fully aware are hostile to black men.
In a disturbing of the recent cases of the police being called on black people for doing everyday, mundane things, the calls have been initiated by white women.
And understand this: Black people view calling the police on them as an act of terror, one that could threaten their lives, and this fear is not without merit. There are too many noosed necks, charred bodies and drowned souls for these white women not to know precisely what they are doing: They are using their white femininity as an instrument of terror against black men.
