Black people in the US, and a considerable number of the white people in the US sincerely believe that black people are the victims. Their lack of concern for the facts or details doesn't stop them from having their own analysis promoted by their chosen community leaders be they academics, militants, or ministers....

The disinformation that goes into the perceptions of the black people of the US is so thoroughly consistent that it has to be deliberate and coming from a common source or related sources. It's coming from a relative handful of black race baiters who see anger as a powerful weapon that unleashes itself at critical mass without the instigator having to be responsible for the creation of the mass or the outcome of the explosion. And no one takes these people to task, except a handful of white people on these bulletin boards because if you call these people (all of these people) on their bullshit they will engage in an uncivil barrage of accusations bordering on screaming to keep from hearing the truth....

We hear a lot about "sincerely held beliefs" on these boards. When black people refuse to apologize for error or ignorance and instead say, "Well in my mind they was ....." what they are saying is that they have sincerely held beliefs put in place by trusted persons which excuse or justify their anger and obstreperousness.
Nova, I believe you have hit the nail on the head here.
