Black justice writer Shaun King announced he will not speak out against the recent Chicago attack on a white man because black people are always held “super-responsible” for the crimes they commit.

King explained why he would not be speaking out on the Chicago assault against a white man who had “mental health challenges” at the New York Daily News.

A defense of the white man is not necessary because black people are usually held responsible for the crimes they commit, King claimed.

“This country does not need me to speak out on crimes committed by black folk because nobody in this country is held more responsible for the crimes they commit, and even the crimes they don’t commit, than black folk in America,” King wrote.

King also claimed that justice comes easy for white people, but not for black people — because of that, the assaulted white man does not need King to come to his defense.

“I am glad the people who assaulted this young man were swiftly arrested. That’s how justice should work for all of us. But you and I both know that swift justice in this country primarily happens when black folk commit crimes,” King wrote.

A Facebook live video surfaced revealing a group of people torturing a white mentally handicapped man. During the abuse, the black attackers shouted “Fuck Donald Trump, nigga! Fuck white people, boy!” (RELATED:F**k Donald Trump, F**k White People!’: 4 People In Custody After Man Kidnapped, Tortured On Facebook Live)

The victim is repeatedly hit and cut with a knife; at one point, the group forces him to drink toilet water. He screams for them to stop.
