Black People Stay On Your Side Of Town [VIDEO]

A couple of days ago a south Buffalo man did an interview on channel 4 and voiced his opinion on minorities moving into his neighborhood (by the way people of color outnumber all others on this planet and are not
minorities). His statements were made in response to an ongoing FBI investigation into an arson fire that occurred about a year or so ago in Buffalo’s Old First Ward.

WIVB Channel 4 interviewed the unnamed man who said that “the minorities (African-Americans) need to stay on their side of town because when they move into certain neighborhoods the property value goes down and crime rises”—he went on to say, “just look at what they (African-Americans) did to the Eastside.”

This man said something that is and has been on the minds of a lot of people both black and white but people always want to just sweep it under the rug and not talk about ‘it’ as if ‘it’ doesn’t exist. Now while I agree with some of what he said, I think that he should not have generalized and grouped the entire African (American) people together, because there are some that bring up the property value of a neighborhood.

What would drive a person to commit arson on another person because he is African (American) and another person to make such divisive comments? Maybe it’s a neurotic drive for superiority standing on a deep sense of inadequacy and inferiority! Comments that were made by the south Buffalo resident display his fear, anxiety, and insecurities and his defense mechanism in the fight for survival. Comments such as these are always a lot deeper than what they appear to be and they will continue to be made until those that make them conquer their fear and accept the inherited truth of their existence!

This is another reason why it is so important to “Know Thyself”!

Arson fire may have been race-related:
