It's what the guy says in the video that you didn't watch. We have to take
him at his word, do we not?
You feel sorry for him and think he's justified in retaliating against
whites, so you ignore what he actually says and ascribe a motive for his
statements that makes you feel better.

All true...but that's not what the guys said, which is the topic under
discussion. It's entirely rational to retaliate against an oppressive
regime. It's not rational to attack any random white person, because they
are white, which is what the guy said, and it is racist.
I know you have that 1960s mentality of social justice and Damn The Man, but
retaliating against a white racist regime using the same philosophy of that
regime, only the obverse of it, isn't any more moral.
