Not if the driver sped up changed lanes and deliberately ran the person over. This was not and accident and your analogy is glaringly false.


There’s always people chiming in here blaming entire races for the acts of a few but I’m sure the sunnyside post commenters won’t blame all white folks in fact, someone above blamed the victim.

Oil, beef, hooked

Not blaming the victim but people should be expected to take some simple, common sense measures to avoid being the victim of crime. Like not leaving your valuables where any miscreant can easily grab them and run off.


Imagine someone got robbed using an ATM. You’d probably blame them for irresponsibly accessing their bank account. Your failure to understand the problem with victim-blaming is widespread, unfortunately, Good thing she wasn’t wearing a revealing outfit that showed some skin!

Oil, beef, hooked

Imagine if someone ran across Queens Blvd against the light without looking at rush hour and got run over, wouldn’t you think that person was somewhat responsible?


The comments about the guy firing the gun in Sunnyside immediately referred to his Hispanic name and talked about deportations and building a wall.

Some people respond differently when a crime is committed by a white person. (Maybe this man has hungry kids at home and he was driven to this crime in desperation! Perhaps he is clinically depressed and unable to control his actions. Let’s home the police can gently take him briefly into custody and find someone to help him, maybe a therapist.)

Oil, beef, hooked

If you’re stupid enough to leave your wallet in a shopping cart, you deserve to get ripped off.
