Black Rule Book Entry #639

Rule #639: you shall not be black, a teenager and go to pool parties in white suburbia. If you break this rule white citizens reserve the right to call the police on you out of fear for their property and the safety of their community because black teens are automatically criminals. The police officers then reserve the right to handcuff and manhandle you without telling you what offense you are charged with. Since we are post-racial we must ignore how if the roles were reversed the imagery of a black officer pinning down a white girl in a bikini would stoke fears of the “black brute” out to take the purity of the white girl as portrayed in the brilliant movie Birth of A Nation. #blackrulebook
