Quote:An author and journalist came under fire on social media Monday, after she tweeted a reply to an anti-looting warning from Miami police by saying: "The carceral state... is inseparable from white supremacy."

The Miami Police Department took to Twitter on Sunday, as Hurricane Irma battered the state. "Thinking about looting? Ask these guys how that turned out. #stayindoors," the post read, sharing a photo of people inside a jail cell.

Though Sarah Jaffe’s tweet on Monday garnered 1,500 likes, it sparked more than 100 comments -- many of which were critical and accused her of being racist.

"They have prisons, crime, and private property in Nigeria too," one user wrote. "And Egypt. And India. Nothing to do with white supremacy. Poverty/inequality."

"So you'd be ok with someone breaking into your house and stealing all your stuff to avoid a 'carceral state'?" another asked.

Someone replying to Jaffe said, "You're saying non-whites can't help but steal, so they shouldn't be punished? Seriously? Keep your racist opinions to yourself. #ShameOnYou."

Quote:Later Monday, Jaffe tweeted that "every now and then I check replies on my tweets and confirm why I have the quality filter on: that s---'s full of nazis."

Where are the pictures of white people looting?

Isn't it more racist to assume a number of the looters are not white?

I don't know either. I haven't seen any pictures of white looters so should we assume that only black people loot or that law enforcement chose not to post white looters?

depends on if yo u assume law enforcement is racist or not. Seeing as how the Miami-Dade police department is less than 21% white, the answer probably isn't what you want it to be.

This was nine specific people looting a pawn America

Are you saying that it can never happen that nine people looting are all the same race? Are you saying that the cops let white looters go? or are you just trying to kick crap up?

I'm not assuming anything. I'm simply presenting what people might be thinking when they see something like what law enforcement posted.

They are racists because they were monitoring the pawn shops and shoe stores where the black people would loot. Had they staked out the Vineyard Vines or the Abercrombie, they could have caught some white looters.

You asked and either-or question, both making separate assumptions regarding race. Logic dictates that you subscribe to one of the two choices.

My first thought was " I bet every one of these thugs have priors." My second thought was "Should have waited until night". Third thought was "f*ucking idiots".

I had all of those thoughts but I also thought, "What? Only black people loot"?

We have to be more mindful of what we present and consider how some people are going to perceive what they see.
