WATCH: Man Speaks Out About Racial Double Standard In America

Race, racial bias, and double standards concerning ethnicity are a hot button topic in America lately. That's especially the case when it comes to law enforcement and criminal activity, but it's safe to say that the source of most such issues runs deep into our culture, our infrastructure, and our society's expectations.

Usually, when it comes to double standards in race, the problem is when a privileged group (like caucasians) has an unfair or harmful advantage over an underprivileged group (like black communities). Or, rather, when an underprivileged group has a harmful disadvantage.

But that's not the case this time. This man wanted to take a moment to take a moment to talk about something in the news that he thinks would have been handled with far more outrage if the victim hadn't been white.

In this video, the man speaking refers to an incident where four Chicago teens (who happened to be black) allegedly kidnapped and beat another young man (who was white). They were caught by the authorities because they broadcasted their supposed acts of violence against their hostage on Facebook Live. You can read and view more about that incident here.

What do you think of what he said? Do you think he was completely spot on, or do you think he has got it all wrong? Do you think he was speaking the truth, but was wrong to bring political labels (like "the left") into the conversation? Do you think his heart is in the right place, but he doesn't quite get it?
