Richard Collins' Murderer, Mike Brown's Murderer, CINOs, MINOs,
and Trump's Losers Have Much In Common
Though the details of Dorian Johnson's stories aren't consistent each time he talks, I never expected them to be. His part of Mike Brown's story after Wilson and Brown are struggling for the gun might be 30 to 60 very long seconds. And that part of Brown's death story takes place while Dorian is running for his own life.
Who can think and remember details in such a situation?
When cops ask 7 bystanders near the scene of a horrific car accident, "What happened?" they get 7 stories that may not overlap very much. The people released from jail after 30 years due to a wrongful conviction were most often put in jail erroneously by eye-witness testimony.
People's memories are bad when they are afraid.
But I believe what Johnson says about what happened between Mike Brown, himself, and Darren Wilson BEFORE he was afraid. There was likely no panic involved in those initial moments before the struggle for the gun.
Before the struggle at the cop car window begins, according to Johnson, Darren Wilson initiated the incident by cussing these two black men out for jay walking.
Wilson's own white cop boss has said enough to let us know Wilson did not know anything about that non-existent store robbery. The initial encounter was a jay walking beef. When they don't move fast enough, Wilson apparently swung the door out hard and hit Mike Brown with it. Then the car door ricocheted back and hit Wilson.
For me it's easy to assume an established white racist like Wilson became enraged and fearful when his attack on Brown backfired. (Isn't hitting somebody that hard with a car door an attack?)
I have to believe Johnson about the door because something provoked Wilson to go for his gun.
The only reason for a person of any color --who is not mentally ill-- to put his or her hand anywhere near a cop's gun near an open car window is to stop him from shooting it.
And if this altercation had happened between two white men, it would be obvious that Wilson's story of Brown just deciding to reach in his car for the gun makes no sense at all.
In addition to the racism, or even because of the racism, Mike Brown's death story should be seen as a white male initiated penis measuring contest gone bad. Wilson, and most white racists, need to prove that they are collectively winning the competition that creates fragile end of white masculinity.

Mike Brown & Murderer Darren Wilson
WHERE ETHNORACISM, WILLFUL WHITE IGNORANCE, AND PATRIARCHY MEET
A few weeks ago when a Muslim man drove a car up onto a sidewalk and killed 5 people in Britain on Westminster Bridge near the parliament. A white reporter over there said maybe this Muslim man, who had lived in Britain for years, was trying to perform a terrorist attack on that particular date because it was the anniversary of the Brussels terrorist attack.
This reporter said this ignoring the fact that the white folks of Britain were right in the midst of triggering BREXIT which sounds like MUSLIM BAN in that both seem to be meant to communicate the same thing: "We hate you non-white outsiders. This is ours."
White people have no idea how much PTSD they cause in non-white people. No idea. But this matters.
When you have a population that is oppressed and scapegoated by white people then come up with things like BREXIT, MUSLIM BAN 1, and the recently re-thwarted MUSLIM BAN 2 you create resentment in a population already way-tired of the white supremacy and unacknowledged white hatred.
Inside the oppressed culture, imagine a fledgling male trying to feel like he's a masculine man that's winning. All you would have to do is add a little emotional imbalance and an adult voice (from ISIS) that seems more masculine than you yourself are. That's how you get the young male MINO to turn into a terrorist.
And you can only do this to men for the most part. There aren't any forms of violence that make a woman more womanly. Creating a feeling of worthlessness by being unable to give up your life doing violence doesn't seem nearly as possible for women
...which is why women terrorists are few and far between.
True oppression (Muslim communities) or imagined oppression (white working class angst) plus promises of being able to compete your way to masculinity is all it takes to create a KKK member, an Alt-Right or Alt-Reich member, a white mass shooter, or a MINO Terrorist with middle east ties.
The feeling like whiteness and maleness isn't paying off the way it should is all it takes to manufacturer a feeling of (pseudo) oppression within yourself.
Again, I see a hair's breadth worth of difference between most of the United White States Mass Shooters and MINO Terrorists. And that small difference is based on a much older adult male terrorist's ability to speak into a boy's sense of failure at being a man.
Therefore, I think it takes a lot of nerve for a CINO like Trump to call out MINOs when he's got to be one of the worst examples of hyper-masculinity based fake manhood there is.
Trump is winner inside the patriarchy. Saying his Daddy's money is his own makes him look like a competitor that has won. For other men who love the patriarchy-as-competitiveness the way it is and think they could win if it weren't for the black and brown people in the way, Trump can no wrong...so far.
No matter what idiotic thing comes out of Trump's mouth the other white males that want to compete and win at masculinity, the other white males who want to become masters of the universe too, they will follow him.
All of this is why I don't think you can separate race, class, and patriarchy. I think they are braided together and have become one. We should all remember that bell hooks has been saying this for decades now.
The capitalism bell hooks also mentions is at the cauldron that holds it all together.
We can think of racism, sexism, and classism as social systems designed by the winners (the one-percenters) to reduce the number of people competing for wealth and power. In other words, all the claims of superiority (competition) are about greed for money or power; the more people you stop from being able to compete, the more you have for yourself.
And if you, as a one-percenter, can convince some of the poor that look like you (poor white folks) using white supremacy to identify yourselves as an "us" in an us-versus-them competition, mostly white one-percenters can use the poor white folks like a shield to protect their wealthI feel like this almost has to be the method by which you get white people come together to slit their own financial throats. Money and power are the only reasons I can think of that a man or woman will choose to believe, for example, that the same chunk of DNA responsible for skin color makes a person intellectually inferior or superior to another.
The motive behind this choice of belief is clearly NOT logic.
Therefore it's a positive feeling that's being sought when you seek out superiority.
Proving one's own superiority to oneself makes one feel good. Taking more than ones fair share can be called "greed" which can also feel good for so long as you can hide your unfair motivations from yourself.
It is emotion, not logic, that drives the racism, sexism, classism and patriarchy. And most of it is coming into the world from the men that run this world.
Men are more than 80% of the presidents, prime ministers, congressmen, parliaments, judges, and policemen the world over. It is men who have decided what masculinity is supposed to look like, who is competitive, who is winning, and who is a loser. But women love and execute patriarchy too
It is no accident that feminists began to use the word “patriarchy” to replace the more commonly used “male chauvanism” and “sexism.” These courageous voices wanted men and women to become more aware of the way patriarchy affects us all...
We need to highlight the role women play in perpetuating and sustaining patriarchal culture so that we will recognize patriarchy as a system women and men support equally, even if men receive more rewards from that system.
Dismantling and changing patriarchal culture is work that men and women must do together.
And if the losers are having emotion based problems then the winners are too
-- ugly winners like white cop murderers who get away with it,--ugly winners rapists who get away with it, --ugly winners like war starters who make sure we all pay one way or another.--piggy-eyed, alt-Right, alt-Reich supporting rich men presidents.
All of the above is why I find it laughable that men think women are more emotional than men.
Women don't actually have more feelings. Women express more feelings. And because women are free to express their emotions in a culture men have 80% of the power to shape, they are more familiar with identifying their feelings And because women can identify their feelings, they are more able to control their feelings.
When men feel bad because they are not competing and coming out on top, especially the youngest of men, their emotions explode into things that look like white cop shootings, rape, terrorism, and war.
...which kinda brings us back to the emotional base and emotional outcomes of white supremacy.
Everybody on the planet except white people know that white men are the ones running rough shod over everyone else for now.
That's why the MINOs are choosing white sections of white countries to terrorize. The young male MINOs knows that their manhood appears to be less than white manhood (because white men are richer and have bigger armies). MINO terrorists fear collectively losing the competition that is patriarchy --in the same ways as KKK white men, Alt-right white men, and Alt-Reich white men are afraid of losing collectively.
MINO terrorists know that bombing black and brown sections of countries like the U.S. and Britain won't gain them even one point toward repairing their masculinity.
This is almost certainly why most black and brown people in the U.S. are more afraid of the white cop (trying to prove his penis is bigger) than they are any MINO terrorists (trying to prove their penises are collectively bigger). When black and brown people die at the hands of a MINO terrorist it's because they were in close proximity to large numbers of white people that are important to white men.
The older men, the MINO Svengali Terrorists, who control the baby-boy-terrorists ignorant enough to kill themselves, are not stupid.
Think about it: What tears at the masculinity of white men more than killing young white females that white men are supposed to be protecting?
When men wage war on other men, the winners try to make sure they rape the losers women. This should be considered yet another my-penis-is-bigger-than-yours gesture.
- These victory-rapes have happened in country after country. And, in addition to the money making aspect of creating more slaves, white men raped black women as a sign of their winning the male supremacy competition.
I take the bombing of a stadium full of pre-teen girls in Manchester as the same gesture.
Until we start treating patriarchy like the sickness it is the rapes and domestic violence will continue to increase without much repercussion whenever "good men" are stressed. We all already knew that, I hope.
But there will also be more Presidents like Trump that 13% of black men voted for and damn near one-third of latino men will voted for -- if it means winning the male supremacy competition.
There will be more wars where the torture of enemies is seen as normal and necessary. There will be more Sandy Hooks and more Manchesters too.
