Gaining from Institutionalized Hatred
This hatred doesn’t come out of nowhere. People profit from the institutionalized hatred of Black men, most particularly law enforcement, media, and the bourgeois intelligentsia.

Private and public prisons not only benefit from grants and federal (taxpayer) dollars, they often trade on the stock market, meaning people literally invest in the warehousing and forced labor of Black males, many of whom have been provided such an atrocious education (with no viable job options) for so many decades that their imprisonment is damned-near inevitable.
