You are absolutely missing the point of my essay. The fact that Manson is being leveraged as someone who was “human” enough to fuck up royally is a privilege that is mainly assigned to White criminals.

Black People are branded as thugs before they even get a chance to actually fuck up. And we don’t get the benefit of being seen as “human” and therefore vulnerable to the qualities that come with that disposition.

That’s a privilege reserved only for White people.
