I am surprisingly shocked at a video that went viral on Twitter of a young black man giving a “warning” to white people.
For one, I am dumbfounded at his audacity to say some of the things he does, such as stating that they will come burn down white people’s houses. I don’t agree with the ideology of white supremacists or the Neo-nazis but guess what? Even if they are disgusting people, it’s still their freedom of speech to march for the monuments that are wrongly being town down. However, burning someone’s house down isn’t covered in the constitution. Sorry.
For two, I am surprised to hear this message come from this specific person. Jay Versace found his fame on Vine and got decently famous for it. I still see his videos on Facebook often, as he is still a Youtuber, and they are almost alway lighthearted and funny. This one took a sinister turn with a serious tone. He plops a few jokes in his rant but it is clear that he means harm.
The 19-year-old is waving a knife and makes “matter-of-fact” statements that white people better watch out because there are “way more black people than white people in this motherf**king country, world, and existence.”
His vulgar commentary did not help his cause. He said, “Ya’ll n***as want to burn candles? B*tch, we’ll burn neighborhoods down. We’ll go all the way to wherever ya’ll motherf**kin’ live and light that whole sh*t up!”
