In 10 more days we have to endure the 10th bullshit anniversary of 9/11. I never particularly cared. It didn't shock me. People are murdered every day, thousands of them. It's human nature to destroy other humans. To think any differently is to live in a state of unreality.
I think black people in general were less effected by 9/11 than white people. Especially white males. White women will cry about anything. Also they often have had the instance of experiencing victimization firsthand. Although that bullshit Disney "Happily ever after" nonsense has brainwashed them so thoroughly that their pain is stored in a place outside themselves.
I think white males were effected by 9/11 (and it shows in their speech) because they were on the whole unaffiliated with being victimized. White males as a group were shocked because something finally happened to them that they couldn't control. Sure there are white males that have been victimized, but at the end of the day they still got to be white after they were victimized.
You don't get these sort of reactions from white males in other countries. Those countries have a history of incidents that keep the patriarchy on its toes. From the blitz of London to the IRA in Northern Ireland, the white males of other countries haven't enjoyed the level of numbing insulation of the US white male.
Listen carefully and read between the lines on 9/11/11. You will hear what sounds to me like a lot of white American males complaining about no longer feeling invincible.
It's sad really, when you're shown how much more someone else values his existence than your own. Add to it the ability for that person to create a suburban cocoon to buffer himself and it becomes surrealistic. America as it stands is a country built to insulate Chad from Leroy and Hector.
9/11 was the sound of white men losing their fucking minds.
