Black Crime Claims Life of Apologist for Black Crime

David Ruenzel knew, better than most, about the white privilege that killed him.

As a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, one of this favorite topics was rooting out racism. And how white racism is permanent. White racism is everywhere. And white racism explains everything.

This mantra of the Critical Race Theory and the Southern Poverty Law Center applied to all white people because, even if they were not personally cracking the whips, or breaking the skulls, white people benefitted from a racist system that did all that — and a lot more.

  • For some reason, I’m reminded of nothing so much as that loon who spent weeks in the Alaska wilderness cuddling up to Grizzly Bears, till one mauled him to death.

    “Over time, he believed the bears trusted him and would allow him to
    approach them; sometimes he would even touch them. Treadwell was
    repeatedly warned by park officials that his interaction with the bears
    was unsafe to both him and to the bears.”

    “the people of Africa are very dangerous children” dr.livingston

    • Based on my knowledge of Livingstone (you do I presume mean the explorer Dr. David Livingstone), which is hardly expert but is not non-existent, he didn’t think that way. He much preferred the company of Africans to Europeans and maintained that Africans were as intelligent as whites. I’d be curious to know where that quote comes from. (I’m not doubting it’s real; it just sounds to me like one of those things that genuinely does need to be put in the proper dread “context”.)

        Livingstone was an ardent abolitionist, except when he himself used slaves because most of his non-slave porters ran off.
        That was later in his trek through Africa and his opinions tended to change over time. So yes, context matters, and the time you want to quote him does too. He had bad things to say about “bad” tribes and good things to say about “good” tribes.
        Conversely he HATED the very Arab slavers that kept him alive for much of his journey.
        So go figure.

        That specific quote DOES sound like something he MIGHT have said at anytime after his first few years in Africa.
        In any event, sourcing would be good and I agree that he did not hate blacks, like many of his contemporary explorers.

      He helped promote the idea that black criminals are victims and should not be punished. Now two of his poster children who were spoon fed his crap about whites being evil decided to follow through on the obvious outcome of that mantra and his death is the outcome

      • What he did was to treat blacks like farm animals incapable of rational thought and subject to the evil magic of white skin.

        • Exile1981

          And incapable of deciding right from wrong.

          Kind of like people in Canada blaming all the evils of reservations on white people, when until a few years ago more often then not the money sent to the reservations was squandered and stolen by the chief and friends.

    There was a young lady from China
    Who went for a ride on a tiger.
    They returned from the ride
    With the lady inside
    And the smile on the face of the tiger.

    Good riddance.

    Up-votes for everyone!
    Yeah, I have nothing else to add that hasn’t already been said.

    • I hope he despised the white privilege that made the bullets that killed him.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    Wonder if it still qualifies as a hate crime if the victim is an ethnomasochist devoted to a suicidal ideology.

  • Dana Garcia

    I didn’t recognize the name, but the murder has been a big story in local news, where somebody getting killed in an East Bay park while hiking is pretty alarming.

  • Many happy returns to the remaining staffers of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
