An old black guy who was trying to clean-up the community by outing drug-dealers on Facebook was killed on a livestream.
Older black men do become totally and completely different people, post-40. Even after they get to be 30, they are like, some number of thousands of times less likely to commit a violent crime.
When I was younger, the impression that I was given about this situation was that younger black men were somehow being corrupted – a “kids these days” type phenomenon, due to drugs and rap music. But then when I got #woke, it was clear that no, extreme violence and hyper-impulsiveness are just natural biological traits of the teenage and twenties black male, and as they age, some hormonal thing happens where they cool off. Even Ben Carson was out there stabbing niggas on the street when he was a yoof.
So whereas I have seen that among whites, do-gooder morality decreases between 20 and 40, as you come to a “way the world is” type realization on a lot of things as your hormones change, black people actually become more inclined toward morality as they age.
So you do get this phenomenon of older black men being morally concerned about younger black men and their community in general. And the younger black men resent that.
This story takes place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Police are actively searching for a man who they say is armed and dangerous following a deadly shooting near Wingate University Monday morning that was caught on Facebook Live.
Wingate police say they received a call about 10:15 a.m. about a man who had been shot on Jerome Street. When officers arrived they say they found a man in his 50s, now identified as Prentis Robinson, laying face down with several gun shot wounds. He was pronounced dead on scene.
According to Wingate Police Chief Donnie Gay, Robinson had visited the police station about five minutes before the shooting occurred to report a stolen cell phone.
The shooting happened roughly a block away from the police station and near Wingate University. The university and a few other schools in the vicinity were placed on lockdown as a precaution. That lockdown was lifted at about 1 p.m.
Robinson had been outing people on Facebook who were suspected drug dealers in the neighborhood, sources told FOX 46. Family members said that Robinson would sometimes help police find drug dealers, even though he had his own demons.
“Walking and talking. Just walking and talking. If somebody messed with him he’d definitely go on Live,” one family member told FOX 46.
They added that they sometimes felt that officers were annoyed with him.
According to Wingate police, Robinson was on Facebook Live when he was shot by an unknown suspect. It’s unclear if Robinson and his shooter knew one another. Deputies say they’re looking for a black man who was seen wearing a blue and black windbreaker and brown Timberland boots.
So this is a pretty standard story from the black community. You can kinda feel bad for the old black guy, but then be like – well, he probably was out there killing 50-year-old black guys when he was 20 also.
If you just automatically sent black males to prison from the age of 12 to 30, for crimes that they were obviously going to commit anyway pretty much no matter what, you wouldn’t really have an issue of black violence in America.
Furthermore, you can see in the above video that Prentis was checking in with a white guy, and this is standard – as they age they also do start to generally view whites less as enemies, and more as people they should be looking up to and trying to emulate. Sometimes one of these 50-year-old blacks will move into a white apartment complex because he doesn’t want to deal with the shit that goes on in the black community, and just act chill.
Note that I’m not saying that black men become useful contributing members of society as they age, because obviously they generally do not. They are definitely more likely to try to get a job and so on when they’re older than when they’re younger, but that isn’t saying much.
Also note that I’m not saying that there aren’t old black men who are a problem – we’re all familiar with the old crackhead black on the corner or whatever.
I’m also not sure how much of this general phenomenon that I’m describing here is due to extreme violence-orient blacks dying young, with only Kanye-tier ones making it to 50. That definitely contributes in some part, though even the most violent blacks chill-out a whole lot after they age, if they make it.
