Gawker: If You are a White Woman, Let Black People Steal Your Phone

In quite possibly the worst article written in Gawker history, whose headlines are so terrible that the words "sorry," "no," and "yes" were banned, Jordan Sargent explained that white women should allow themselves to be mugged by black people.

No, this is not an exaggeration. Sargent literally began his article, "On Friday, a white lady named Clara Vondrich had her iPhone stolen..." Ms. Vondrich then chased down her mugger, a thirteen-year-old black teenager, which Sargent said was a "s**tty" thing to do.

Sargent also repeatedly put quotations around the word "crime," as if stealing an iPhone from someone is not a crime. Why do this? Because, as Sargent explains, white women should learn their place and just let black people steal from them.

He explains that the kid "has enough problems" as it is. Because of his weight, Ms. Vondrich said she was able to catch up to her robber. "Have a heart," Sargent begs. The poor, poor robber is facing charges and now, "kids at school will definitely make fun of him endlessly for being caught from behind by a white lady wearing zany sunglasses." That poor kid! If only he had stolen from an old woman, he would have gotten away.

Sargent again references Ms. Vondrich's race while explaining how evil she is for being, writing, "The boy will now enter New York's vaunted juvenile justice system, which will likely f**k up his life even further, simply because he snatched a white lady's iPhone in Williamsburg."

Finally, the article ends with possibly the worst advice I have heard in my entire life: "If you are nonviolently mugged by a child, continue to let him run along with his friends. The world will be a better place."

That's right: if you're white, let people take your stuff, especially if they are teenagers who are a minority. What kind of bubble do you have to live in to actually believe this garbage?
