From the Washington Post today, the following is listed as “News” but it’s from the Post’s feminist nook “The Lily:”

The Columbus mayor called Ma’Khia Bryant a ‘young woman.’ Here’s why people are angry.

Some said it exemplified ‘adultification bias’ against the Black 16-year-old girl who was fatally shot by police

Julianne McShane
Apr. 21, 2021

… Body camera footage shown at a news conference on Tuesday night shows what happened when officers arrived on the scene: Ma’Khia appears to have lunged at another person before a police officer fired four times. A knife is briefly visible both in her hand and then next to her on the ground where she fell after being shot.

“She’s a [expletive] kid, man,” someone can be heard yelling in the background.

Earlier that night, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther (D) took to Twitter to share news of the killing, calling Ma’Khia a “young woman.” Replies quickly poured in, noting that Ma’Khia was a child — not an adult.

At the news conference a few hours later, Ginther acknowledged Ma’Khia was a child: “The city of Columbus lost a 15-year-old girl today,” he said. “This young 15-year-old girl will never be coming home.”

But some still took to social media to criticize his initial characterization of Ma’Khia, calling it “adultification bias” — a form of discrimination that uniquely plagues Black girls, leading them to be perceived by adults as less innocent and more adult-like than their White peers, according to a widely covered 2017 Georgetown study. …

The 2017 Georgetown study found that adults’ biased perceptions of Black girls result in their being suspended from school at higher rates than White girls, and being more likely than both Black boys and their White peers to be disciplined for minor infractions, fighting and disobedience. Underlying these perceptions are stereotypes of Black women that originated during U.S. slavery and positioned Black women and girls as unable to conform to expectations of traditional White femininity, the study notes.

Advocates, scholars and doctors characterized the adultification bias emerging in the aftermath of Ma’Khia’s death as a form of misogynoir — a term coined by Black feminist scholar Moya Bailey. It’s a way to describe how “anti-Blackness and misogyny combine to malign Black women in our world,” Bailey wrote.

“The sexism that [Black girls] face is going to be different than what White girls experience and the racism that they face is going to be different than what Black boys experience — that’s because of the racist and sexist lens,” said Ijeoma Opara, an assistant professor in the school of social welfare at Stony Brook University. “We as a society view Black girls as grown women who aren’t capable of being talked to and respected and protected as children.”

To Opara, the shooting exemplified this, given the familiarity of the situation: kids fighting.

Uh, I’ve seen a lot of fights among kids, but I’ve never seen anything like this:

By the way, after Knife Girl knocks down the first girl, but then is dissuaded from going in for the kill on the first girl by the policeman in the vicinity, a big black man comes over and kicks the girl on the ground in the head. What the hell was that? Has that guy been arrested?

The policeman did a remarkable job of not being distracted by the sight of a man kicking a girl in the head and staying focused on the greater threat: Knife Girl.

But police aggressively responded to Ma’Khia because of sexism and racism, she argued.

“Children fight all the time, regardless of race, regardless of class level,” she said. “When we think about Ma’Khia or other Black girls like her … they’re not given the chance to be in situations that could be de-escalated.” …

The mayor’s tweet in the aftermath of Ma’Khia’s killing didn’t help the situation, according to Marline Francois-Madden, a social worker, therapist and doctoral candidate in family science and human development at Montclair State University, who said Ginther’s characterization of Ma’Khia as a “young woman” on Twitter made the incident sound like a dispute between adults rather than between kids. That kind of adultification bias in the aftermath of a Black girl’s death can have mental and emotional consequences on other Black girls watching the situation unfold, she added.

“It makes other Black girls feel like they don’t know if they’ll be able to be protected,” said Francois-Madden, who is also the author of “The State of Black Girls.” …

It’s also crucial, Fenton added, for journalists not to reinforce adultification bias when they cover Ma’Khia’s death, pointing to a video of a woman who identified herself as Ma’Khia’s aunt and told reporters: “Either you report the truth, or don’t report nothing. She was a good kid. She was loving.”

Ma’Khia’s mother, Paula Bryant, said she was an honor roll student and that she had a “motherly nature about her.”

  6. This is part of the narrative baking you mentioned in the previous post. The girl looked like a large, fully grown woman.

    The trend toward portraying black teens killed by cops as children goes back decades. I first noticed it with a local case, an armed black teen named Phillip Pannell who was shot by a cop while resisting arrest. Pannell was a truant who hadn’t been in school for at least a year and the local news used a photo of him they presumably got from his mother where he looked like an angelic 12 year old.

    Uniquely? Of course their (everything which follows is “on average”): greater size for age, earlier age of menarche, much higher rate of STD’s, much higher rate of violent behaviour, much higher rate of school discipline problems, and earlier independence from parental control might prompt quite unbiased observers to think them more mature for age…

    That was Professor Headstomp on his way to Stanford. Sometimes he mediates in altercations. He’s a good boy.

    Can we just all conclude that the cop (who apparently is unable to shoot someone in the pinky to disarm them properly) shouldn’t have shown up, then nobody except the medics and the undertakers would have heard about all this bullshit and this would have saved us many hours of productive work?

    This is part of the narrative baking you mentioned in the previous post. The girl looked like a large, fully grown woman.

    It is said that female Blacks mature relatively fast, reaching menarche at a younger age than other population groups.

    Male Blacks, too, are said to mature quickly and have higher levels of testosterone.

  12. Speaking of mixing up age groups, here’s a somewhat-OT story that is hard to read, much less believe:

    Man wrestled and gripped infant’s head ‘in a football hold’ prior to his death: affidavit

    Quick summary:

    In El Paso, TX, a 24-year-old black man was ‘babysitting’ three children. One of them, a white boy just one year old, ended up dead the next day, with a skull fracture and massive internal injuries. The babysitter, one Marvin Rex Lake, initially denied having anything to do with this, but then:

    He said he performed several wrestling-style moves with the child and, at one point, the child slipped from his hand and struck the frame of a futon in the residence.

    He also told police he grabbed the child like a football after getting upset and being unable to control his anger.

    The most darkly comic detail of the story, which you couldn’t make up if you tried:

    Lake returned to the police headquarters on April 15 [two days after the boy had died, but before Lake was arrested], wanting to speak with the investigator on the case. They had a discussion in the lobby of the building.

    “The defendant (Lake) was seeking reimbursement for damages to the futon,” the affidavit reads.

    Police told Lake the futon was photographed and the frame was exposed due to his statement that the baby had hit the frame during wrestling moves.

    “I did not hurt his head, I only caused the internal injuries,” Lake replied.

    I’d LOL if this story weren’t so utterly heartbreaking.

    ‘Adulteration’ would have been better but as that already means an act or process of making impure by adding extraneous, improper, or inferior ingredients, it could be considered anti-immigration and therefore racist.

    Strange. The media had no problem identifying the FedEx shooter as “a 19-year old white man”.

    In general, I find it strange this treatment of teenagers as “children” in America. Teenagers are no longer “children”. Maybe up to 13, max 15. But from 16 on, I wouldn’t call them “children”. In other times people were basically adults for all purposes at this age.

    Black people in particular develop even earlier.

    It’s funny, when involved in crime, we have to call them “children”, but if it’s say, the entertainment market, then they are “young adults”.

    People who are commenting, like the social worker in this story, are not really interested in discussing the specifics of this particular case history, but simply piggybacking their pet theories so as to get media attention.

    Yes, the dead girl was legally considered to be a child by virtue of her birthdate, but trying to stab somebody with a knife is not children’s play.

    Then again, we don’t really know what happened, and perhaps the knife girl was provoked or bullied beyond all reason by the girl in pink and finally lost it. Proper investigation is needed.

    This is a real phenomena though. If you’ve ever been around a class with white and black children, particularly girls, the black ones always look much older than they are. You sometimes think you’re dealing with a very immature 7 year old but it’s really a 5 year old.

    There is actually a version of this in Mute Swans. Immutabilis Swans or ‘Polish Swans’ are Mute Swans with a mutation that means they don’t develop the dark colours of juvenile swans but are born with white feathers. This means they are treated as adults earlier by their parents and driven off early and also means they’re seen as sexually mature earlier.

I cringe every time I see some character “just gets knocked out” (usually by purported friendlies) in a tv show or movie.

    When there’s a local news report about high school girls winning a volleyball tournament or a science fair or whatever, there’s often a noticeable mental effort avoid calling them “girls”, because that’s how the patriarchy belittles and marginalizes young women (and disenfranchises them too – so passionate and vocal and the future belonging to them, but unable to cast a vote).

    So the white anchor with the graying temples says “and what a great achievement by these, uh, ….”, betraying an awareness that his powerskirt colleague is just waiting for him to say “girls” so that she can jump in with “yes, Ted, these young women have a great future in front of them”. And it gets funnier during a longer discussion once “young women” and “young ladies” have been said and their repetition would seem odd, leading to a parlor game where the loser is the first one to use the obvious generic term for female high school students.

    Part of it is the natural human instinct to think of your own children as they were when they were still cute and vulnerable. However, in blacks, they seem unable to objectively separate this psychological phenomenon from reality.

    Thus, you had Trayvon Martin, heavier and/or taller than George Zimmerman, attacking him, but the family release a half-decade outdated photo of the perp and the narrative is that an old white man killed a black “child”.

    We all agree, but unfortunately police officers are tracked, monitored and evaluated on their productivity and efficiency. They can try to stall a little getting there, but their retainability and career advancement will suffer if they make it too obvious, and they can even face discipline.
    Now, if he had been there by himself he could have done the same thing as the cop who was only a few months away from retirement did in the Florida school shooting a few years ago. He could have hung back, “ set up a perimeter and contained the situation until a response team could be brought in”. Unfortunately for him, as it happened he had back-up and acted reflexively to save one of the women.

    Lake watched over DeHart and two other young children on April 12 while their mothers went to work, the document states. Extended family told KTSM 9 News it was the first time that Lake watched DeHart and that he was a friend of the infant’s parents.

    DeHart’s regular babysitter had called out sick and Lake was a last-minute child care option, the family added.

    The Go Fund Me linked from the article adds that they knew Lake from the military, he had left the service a year ago. The father was a soldier in the army and the mother was a labor and delivery nurse. I guess our military doesn’t offer emergency child care options along with everything else they do.

    People were gullible and jumped to conclusions if they assumed that the picture of the 12-year-old Trayvon Martin was how he looked at the age of 17.

    These days with digital photography, far fewer people print out photographs on paper and put them in family and wedding albums. Most photographs that are in the public domain can be found in social media like Facebook, but when people in the news do not have Facebook pages or are not active online, photos are very hard to come by.

    She was a “fully grown woman,” biologically as opposed to legally, not only large but violent and dangerous. Whether she was 12 o 13 or in her 20s or 30s, the cop was justified in shooting and killing her to prevent at least one if not two murders. The only just and rational criticism of his actions was that he could have shot her in the buttocks or thighs to disable and disarm rather than kill her but police are trained to shoot perpetrators in the torso, front or back, if they and others are endangered.

Indeed he would have been more justified in killng her during the original charge (at the fat white girl) as he had not seen her charge at someone welding a knife without cutting them with it at that point.

    Well it’s less difficult to focus on someone waving knife when the person has their back to you. But very nice grouping nonetheless, all 4 shots in and around the heart, which is verifiable from the footage of her exposed midriff. A kindness; be humiliating for her to be shot in her huge ass. Also she was like a African buffalo (“It’s the dead ones that kill you”).

    ‘That kind of adultification bias in the aftermath of a Black girl’s death can have mental and emotional consequences on other Black girls watching the situation unfold, she added’.

    Current publicity about police shooting blacks having a deleterious effect on her emotional state can hardly be discounted given the timing.

    The cop defended someone from getting stabbed. Even if he shot the wrong person, e.g. Knife Girl had called 9-1-1, even if he had not been a fully deputized LEO, he’s still protected by #2 (as a militiaman, per mutual defense).

    However, if he did shoot the wrong, um, teenager, then the attacker about whom the 9-1-1 call was made — for all we know, possibly the intended stabbing victim — could be charged (as an adult) with felony murder.

    not only transcends any Blackity Blackness or other POC sacralization, but is hardly limited-to or unique to any one particular party or side of any political, ideological, religious, ethnic, national, or cultural divide.

    To illustrate the point, there are a number of cases that can be cited from the comment section of this very blog. For now, let us take one, that of the late Jeffrey Epstein.

    To the best of my knowledge, all of those who have alleged being victims of Epstein were, at the time of the alleged criminal/abusive conduct on his part, unambiguously sexually mature teenagers. Yet, that has not stopped many here from routinely referring-to Epstein as a “pedophile”, or even as a “child rapist”, and to his alleged victims as “children”, “girls”, or even “young girls” (some may have even gone so far as to invoke the super-charged, yet wildly misleading term “little girls”).

    Moreover, the commenters who have exhibited said behavior include at least two who had previously explicitly and emphatically acknowledged that pedophilia, by definition, refers exclusively to cases where the alleged victim(s) at the time of the alleged crime or abuse was prepubescent. And at least one of these two commenters has gone so far as to specifically correct others on that very point. Yet these same individuals then apparently felt no compunctions about turning around and opportunistically invoking that very “pedo” label against Epstein when they perceived doing so to serve their interests.

    Now, as a thought exercise, let us imagine the Epstein case with all of the same details as we presently know it, but with just one aspect inverted: Let us imagine that Epstein had not been a Jew but a white Christian, and that it had been his alleged victims who had been Jewish.

    How different might the reactions, from the same individuals in-question, have been? Might we very well have seen at least some of them doing a complete “180”? Is it at all difficult to imagine them calling the alleged victims ‘sluts’, ‘whores’, ‘Jezebels’, etc., and attacking them for having cynically and diabolically ensnared and corrupted the virtue of a decent, Christian white man, and now opportunistically smearing his character and extorting him? For said commenters to respond to anyoen who would characterize the alleged teenage victims as mere “children”, etc., to note the very same critical distinctions that I did just above, concerning the very definition of pedophilia, etc.?

    My interest here, it should be apparent, is neither to defend nor to attack Epstein. He, or any other particular individual, is entirely beside the point.

    A lesbian co-worker once told me this lesbian joke.

    Q: What does a lesbian bring on the second date?
    A: A U-Haul

    Given the obvious attachment disorder lying behind that joke it only follows that they don’t take break-ups well. So, now we can add to the list of lesbian jokes,

    tyrone, tell that to the family, still greiving I might add, of Harambe. Killed for trying to play with a young White kid. Just kidding, he had it coming.

    Maybe i’m missing a joke, but the Harambe shooting was probably unnecessary considering that he hadn’t hurt the kid at all in the 10 minutes that he’d been with him. Harambe, who had been born in a zoo and lived his whole life around and aware of humans, would probably have handed him over to zookeepers as a gorilla did in a similar incident in 1996.

    Also, apropos to some of the discussions around these police related deaths, note that the situation was exacerbated by screaming, screeching people (esp. women).

    Also the kid was black.

    See esp. the description of this video for relevant documented commentary from some experts:

    An article about and with pictures of the boy’s parents:

    Nothing that dramatic (been shot at and stabbed, but not that). I have injured myself with my own explosives though (been building improvised explosives since high school – started with those Paladin Press books – I still have Seymour Lecker’s first book).

    Took blunt force trauma to the head repeatedly and have been concussed and knocked out several times.

    One of the worst times was actually not even “real world,” but at a Judo match. My opponent picked me up and threw me. Instead of break-falling safely (Ukemi) and losing, I tried not to be scored upon and braced with my arm. It snapped in half and I landed (apparently) hard straight on my head. I woke up in the ambulance.

    I actually don’t remember most of it – I saw the video tape later and winced.

    When I first became an investigator, I aced the recall rests (some of the highest recorded scores ever). The last time I took the test, I was very, very low. My neurologist thinks I have many of the symptoms of CTE. Smart phones, iPads, and laptops have been very helpful. I constantly make notes and to-do lists and record everything.

    The worst thing is the constant and occasionally excruciating neck pain and headaches.

  138. ‘Ma’Khia’s mother, Paula Bryant, said she was an honor roll student and that she had a “motherly nature about her.”’
    I cannot for a moment believe that overgrown brat was an “honor roll student” in any actual school but I suppose mom is right since “motherly nature” these days means killing inconvenient children.

    Your troll game is weak, Reg. You just say the same thing over and over. “One time blah blah blah happened and so White people just need to accept their fate.”

    Tibetans did things in the past too. Nobody says they deserve genocide because of it.

    Agreed. I used to use Amazon and Google a lot but now only use Amazon if there’s something I HAVE to get somewhere by tomorrow, which is pretty rare (I think once in the last 2 years) if you get organised.

    Google is a crap search engine now, it was brilliant around 2000. Quant’s not too bad, no worse than Google anyway.

    Still use eBay though, and the cretin who made a fortune from that, Omidyar, funds all manner of left activists through his foundation.

    Also, Amazon own AbeBooks, I try and find the book on Abe then get in touch direct with the bookshop.

    De Blasio’s black wife used to be a lesbian.

    “used to be a lesbian” ???

    From The New York Observer, December 2012:
    The Lesbian Past of Bill de Blasio’s Wife

    Isn’t this a rather glaring admission against interest? A woman who previously had proudly and unequivocally declared herself a Lesbian is now married to a man whom she claims is the love of her life. Doesn’t New York City’s First Couple not only subscribe-to the doctrinal Truth that sexual orientation* is without exception both innate and immutable, but also demand that we all do as well?

    Are we not entitled-to demand an explanation?

    *Are we still allowed to use that term?

    Anything less than full repatriation can be termed “genocide”. Every ounce of food eaten by a non-white is an ounce of food not eaten by a white child.

    You’re the one who opposes full repatriation. Why? Nothing would be better for whites.

    “But….but….Tom Sowell…”

    Leave Sowell out of this. His “visions” books explain the psychology of the “woke white” better than anyone else’s. Indeed, predicted it.

    Made me wonder whether that happened occasionally in other households with slaves.

    Oh, I believe it. Thomas Mumford is my ancestor:

    But “Chronicles” contains one startling reference to the cauldron simmering beneath New England’s supposedly benign slavery. In 1707 in Newport, John Mumford’s father’s first wife was impulsively murdered by a slave she ordered whipped. The panicked slave drowned himself, but he did not escape punishment. According to a court record, the Newport authorities ordered “that his head, legs and arms be cut from his body and hung up in some public place … and his body burned to ashes, that it may, if it please God, be something of a terror to others from perpetrating a like barbarity.”

    Also, Amazon own AbeBooks, I try and find the book on Abe then get in touch direct with the bookshop.

    I use bookfinder.com

    They cover everybody– AbeBooks, Alibris, Biblio, eBay, and smaller ones like Valore, Textbook Rush, and SecondSale. Often the same copy is offered by several of them,from the same bookstore, so you can choose the middleman you prefer. In such cases, the prices usually differ by less than a dollar.

    Fifteen years ago, a former girlfriend related how a colleague was overjoyed to have discovered AbeBooks. I fired back that she’d be better off going to Bookfinder. Must’ve worked– I’m married to her now.

    Indians in Silicon Valley may be mostly a scourge, but it’s easy to forgive the founder of Bookfinder. Him, and Vikram Seth. Some are good enough to have gotten in under the older, stricter rules.

    At one time it was considered hate speech to call black boys and girls boys and girls. The correct term for black boys was Manchild. There was never an equivalent term for girls. I suppose male or female teen is least offensive to the perpetually offended.
