The thing that bother’s me about this Sam Pepper thing is that yes, he is getting dragged and rightfully so. He did some foul ass shit that does deserve a negative response from those who have been victimized by it and viewed it. But where was all this outrage when “hood” prankers were walking up to black men and stepping on their shoes? Or when they had someone walk up to them with their ass in their face? Or when these “prankers” walked up to black men and put their hand on them in order to pull up their pants?
This once again proves that when shit happens to black folks, it either gets ignored by white folks or written off as black folks overreacting but when shit goes down and white women get violated, that’s when the defense squad FINALLY shows up. Black folks aren’t seen as victims, period.
This whole “violating personal space and physically harassing in order to “prank” people” is a problem in and of itself. The fact that black folks are looked and and spoken of negatively for getting physical for someone putting their hands on them or violating their personal space is asinine.
And you even got “YouTubers” going on the offensive with this situation who never said anything about the “hood” prankers and you’d have to wonder cuz the “hood” prankers have a lot of subscribers and views. They had to have come across one video of theirs or at least heard of them. So why have they never said anything about prankers until now?
Because they don’t give a fuck about black folks.
The Fine Brothers, Laci Green, John Green, Hank Green, Tyler Oakley, these are folks I’ve seen who have spoken out against Sam Pepper but where are they when the “hood” prankers harass black folks?
I think part of it is that they don’t care about black folks, partially because black folks aren’t a big part of their demographic so they don’t bother to address them and their issues……….
