The linked article is vague. But the guy doing the dragging is white, the little kid is black. He’s toast. Job gone. Fini. People won’t even wait to hear if there is an explanation because no explanation will be good enough.
Most people will say there is never any reason to treat a child like this. These are the same people who say, “there is never a reason to hit a woman.”
I tried to make a point years ago about how silly that statement is, that there is never a reason to hit a woman, and I was pig-piled. I still maintain that I’m right.
There are thousands of reasons to hit a woman, some people just refuse to do it under any circumstances. That’s great. That’s principled and it’s noble. But it doesn’t address the ludicrous assertion that there isn’t any reason to hit a woman.
Maybe the point is too subtle.
Here, I’ll let Bill Burr explain it.
Having watched this, I think you’ll understand when I say, “there are plenty of reasons to drag a kid off a bus on his head. You just don’t do it.”
