Because it would be a form of “white-presenting,” according to some …
But what is “white-presenting”?
Before defining this term, let me provide some relevant background information about something that occurred earlier this week, via the New York Daily News:
A man offered to do a good deed at a Brooklyn restaurant — and was punished with a bone-breaking beating, cops said.
A group of men kicked and pummeled a 37-year-old customer, beating him with his own cane after he offered to pay for their meal, police said Tuesday.
Then, as he lay prone and bleeding on the ground, two customers simply ordered dinner as if nothing had happened, police sources said.
Watch the beat-down below:
The perpetrators were clearly black, and the victim was reportedly white, though this has not been confirmed.
What we do know for certain is that there exist certain people so lacking in intelligence that they have tried to essentially excuse the black thugs’ behavior by blaming the possibly white perpetrator for having engaged in “white-presenting.”
Cue the following comment from Gothamist:
Kill me now …
So because some black people allegedly carry a chip the size of Michael Moore’s gut on their shoulders, white people must never offer black people unsolicited help, as it would hurt their feelings?
Are you kidding me?
There is a phrase that perfectly describes Mr. Arts_and_Sciences’ thinking: the bigotry of low expectations.
To believe that black people are so stuck on stupid that they cannot even accept a white man’s act of compassion and goodwill without throwing a fit is the epitome of bigotry — just not the sort of bigotry liberals care to talk about.
It is an especially subtle form of bigotry that assigns the worst behavioral traits humanely possible — cowardice, laziness, cruelty, viciousness — to black people just because of their race.
Forget the fact that the perpetrators of this foul attack were rotten apples unrepresentative of the countless kind and professional black men and women we encounter daily in our lives. Because they were black, they must be representative of all blacks.
Except that they were not representative of anything but themselves, which is why the next time you ponder offering assistance to someone you either know or encounter, you should NOT worry about so-called “white-presenting,” regardless of the recipient’s race.
Instead you should do as you originally planned and … wait for it … act like a human being.
