Young Black Thugs: Put Em Down Like Dogs

School psychologist Mark A Traina, the other day, Tweeted the above statements talking about the incarceration rate of black youth in the Jefferson Parish area of Louisiana. Mr. Traina is also the same person that believes Zimmerman was the actual victim in the Trayvon Martin Murder.

He also states that he is a realist not a racist, but really? Really put our young black youths down like dogs right. How about we stop letting our black women try to raise men when men should be raising them. I have always said that this generation is lost unless we unite and come together. Now to have someone not of color make a statement like this about black youth today.

This is just another way to harass the Jefferson Parish Public School System. One only needs to read the Times Picayune to see who the real trouble makers are. Sadly, it is disproportionately young black males. Everyone knows that our jails throughout the United States are disproportionately filled with black people. Why would the rate be any different in an educational environment?

The U.S. Department of Education’s office of civil rights is sending a rep to the Jefferson Parish School system this week, and Traina dismissed racist accusations by saying, “Everything I said is fact-based, backed up by data. I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. I’m not a racist. I’m a realist.” People lie, numbers lie, and ignorance shines through regardless.

His statements in the wrong mindset has opened up hunting season on black youth. Now with summer on the way, police are already gearing up patrols in some areas while some cities have established 11 o’clock curfews. Though something must be done to curb the violence among our youth today and the crimes done against the communities, issuing such a statement is not only dangerous, but crosses the line. This is a statement that you would usually hear said by the Klan.
