    Bipolar disorder is a serious mental health problem that causes violent mood swings and crippling depression. According to one liberal website however, this condition is nothing more than white privilege. A white man in Virginia was found not guilty by reason of insanity for a hate crime attack against a black woman due to being diagnosed as bipolar. The interpretation on the left is that he got away with it because he’s white.

    Last spring 27-year-old Matthew R. Ellis pulled his car along side a black woman in Chester, VA and began yelling obscenities at her. He pursued her and rammed her car, forcing her to stop. He grabbed the woman and pulled her out of the car by her ankles. 3 other motorists intervened and tackled Ellis until police arrived. In the presence of the police he yelled racial slurs at the woman and stated he wanted to kill her because she is black.

    Ellis was charged with hate-crime assault, two counts of assaulting a law-enforcement officer, statutory burglary and reckless driving. As The Richmond-Times Dispatch reports, he was found not guilty of all charges because of his mental condition:

    Bipolar is a really trendy diagnosis right now. But it's not a fake disorder to those who truly have it. It's become really trendy to diagnose kids and adolescents with it and get them on medication before they reach adulthood, which is wrong. With a teen in particular, it is easy to misdiagnose a sleep/wake disorder with bipolar. And, most teenagers have mood swings, it is normal for them, even if it is annoying for their parents/teachers/neighbors.

    It's also not an exclusively white disorder, but it is one of the few psychological diagnoses that has a biological cause. If one is truly bipolar, his or her body does not manufacture enough lithium to stabilize moods. Usually, chemical lithium will stabilize, but eventually, the person will have other prescriptions because the body gets too used to the prescription lithium and develop tolerance to it. Then the doctor throws in either Valium, Seroquel or Depakote into the cocktail to even out the mood swings.

    I have had plenty of black clients with Bipolar Disorder over the years/decades in my career.
