    I'm sure you heard about the horrible tragedy at a Disney Hotel in Orlando and wondered how your reaction affected back people. Well, if you didn't wonder, here's how it did...

    The Disturbingly Different Responses To The Disney And Cincinnati Zoo Tragedies
    1 hour ago | Updated 1 hour ago

    Ranier Maningding Copywriter. Ungrateful millennial. Wii Fit Trainer.
    This week, at the Disney World Resort in Florida, a 2-year-old white boy was killed by an alligator. Last month, a 3-year-old Black child fell into a Gorilla exhibit.

    Two similar tragedies, two DISTURBINGLY different responses from the public.

    But this isn’t about gorillas and alligators. Nor is it about news media describing Matt Graves, the father of the white child, as an employee of a “tech company and a board member of the Chamber of Commerce” while depicting Deonne Dickerson, the father of the Black child, as an absent father with a lengthy criminal record.

    Nah.

    This is about our country’s OBSESSION with invalidating, patronizing and racializing Black parents. ALL BLACK PARENTS.

    Take a good look at how we talk about Black parents in the news and across social media:

    - White America invented the “welfare queen” caricature to depict Black mothers as lazy and opportunistic, while slut-shaming them with myths of “multiple fathers.”

    - We constantly joke in our movies, TV shows and Youtube videos about absent Black fathers.

    - Just a few months ago, we shamed Will and Jada Pinkett Smith because their son, Jaden Smith, was seen wearing a skirt. People questioned their parenting and placed blame on their association with Scientology.

    - When Mike Brown was murdered by Darren Wilson in 2014, people shamed Mike’s mother for raising “a thug” and never gave her the opportunity to mourn the loss of her son.

    ALL OF THIS BULLSHIT is a way to disprove the humanity of Black parents — to prove that Black people aren’t responsible for themselves or their children. By doing this, we validate our legacy of oppression towards Black people.

    In the eyes of white supremacy, who cares if we gentrify Black neighborhoods and push out Black families? Who cares if we zone Black children into schools that are horribly underfunded? Who cares if we provide inferior healthcare to Black children? Who cares if police officers murder Black kids?

    In the eyes of white supremacy, because Black parents are bad parents, they don’t deserve those civil rights. They don’t deserve to eat, to be taken care of by a physician, to study at a decent public school, nor do they deserve to live.

    Funny...

    White people are mortified about this 2-year-old being eaten alive by an alligator yet, during slavery, white people fed the local alligators Black babies.

    I guess the outrage over Black lives has a statute of limitations...

    If this site was any indication, most people thought the father killed the kid.

    Guy fist fights a gator over the body of his child, and the Internet accuses him of murder. That's white male privilege for you.

    No one accused him of murder. Negligence, most certainly.

    was this at all inaccurate?
