Pediatrics: The Harms of Structural Whiteness on Weapon Carrying, Policing and Child Health

In the 1983 movie A Christmas Story, all Ralphie wanted was a BB gun.

This is from the Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Pediatrics:

“We live in a country that “adultifies” and criminalizes children simply for not being white. “Adultification” is the process by which certain children are perceived as older than their actual age and, as a result, are regarded as less innocent and subject to callous and sometimes violent treatment. This misperception of Black children begins as young as age 5 for Black girls and age 10 for Black boys and is far from benign.

Misperceptions of children that deny them the presumption of innocence affect the ways we, as a society, protect children, legally and socially. Consequently, when children of color are routinely misperceived as older, the protections typically afforded all children as a function of their age and developmental stage can come to uniquely benefit white children as a material advantage of their whiteness. This process has two related effects: it absolves white children from scrutiny, and it contributes to the inordinate policing of children of color.

In this issue of Pediatrics, Jewett et al examine patterns of weapon carrying in US schools among white, Black, and Hispanic boys. Using data from the Youth Behavior Surveillance System from 1993 to 2019, Jewett et al compared self-reported weapon carrying in US high schools by race and/or ethnicity, age, and school climate. Their results expose troubling patterns of weapon carrying in white boys that impugn the common justifications used to disproportionately punish and police Black and Hispanic children. …

A simple answer to both questions is gun control. …”

This garbage trickles down from worthless academics:

  • There are too many police officers in black and Hispanic schools in crime-infested urban areas
  • The real cause is systematic racism
  • White boys in rural America are taking too many guns to school in their pickup trucks
  • The solution is gun control

Who is the author?

Apparently, this woman is rather well known. She also published an article in The Lancet called “Despair Doesn’t Kill, Defending Whiteness Does.” This is the type of nonsense that has proliferated across all government agencies in the Biden administration.

Note: Chris Hayes echoed this woman last night on MSNBC when he said that Biz Markie and DMX had died of systematic racism.

  1. How many black teens shoot each other every year? What even is this about?

    • I think she is saying it sucks to be black. Unlike us, they have nearly an entire continent they can fuck off to. For some reason they never do this.

      • One reason is that niggers were schooled in Parasitism by the jews. They’ve learned to “kvetch” effectively. So much so, that we Whites give them whatever they want. If they did return to their Beloved Continent…well, they’d be on the menu. ; )

  2. “systems that deeply harm folks of color and Black folks in particular”

    That’s the reason they enjoy the highest standard of living in the world, They are so harmed.

    That woman produces nothing but mindless gibberish.

  3. The article is the typical inversion of facts.

    The truth being, Americans pander to blacks, tolerate too much, make excuses for their animal behavior and give them too many privileges.

  4. (((They))) will do anything to make Whites look evil when the truth is the complete opposite. They make blacks out to be victim when they are the victimizers.

  5. When the U.S. implodes the blackety, blackety, blacks are going to be left to their own devices along with the rest of the colored people. They will then find out that the only thing worse than living under White oppression and ‘systemic racism’, whatever that is, is living without systemic racism as Whites retreat into White areas and the Government isn’t around to hold their hands, feed them, clothe them and provide for them anymore.

    At least then the coloreds will be able to unleash their black girl magic and all their other magnificent talents and bring about Wakanda, once they’re free of the evil White man. Good luck, they’re going to need it when the lights go out. Don’t be within 10 miles of them though.

  6. Just yet another nigger regurgitating the pseudo-scientific Cultural Marxist gibberish taught it by the god damned kikes.

  7. This is a deadly and pernicious evil. They are literally demanding that we believe 2+2=5.

    • What they have to do to the language to get around blacks being demonic. Adultification? Lol. Blacks are toddlers trapped in a grown up world.

  8. I am not sure exactly what this systematic racism is. To any sane observer from outside the American nightmare on the groveling toward blacks has now become a form of idolatry.

    If whites have such god like powers to control everything then credit must go to you for the good as well as the evil. Blacks in recent memory receive way more good than bad while they dish out way more evil than good.

    A good portion of the non white world wishes to come to the USA and it is in spite of black people. If whites fold like they might then non whites will still come but it will be to conquer not to grovel toward the blacks.
