Race Riots in Tennessee
East Tennessee Business Journal ^ | 11/16/11 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 10/16/2011 8:24:22 PM PDT by Mary Robinson

When I told my friends I was working on a magazine article, then a book, about a tsunami of racial violence in America over the last two years, they said, “I haven’t heard about that.” When my Tennessee friend told me about a horrific racial crime in Knoxville, Tennessee, I told him: “I haven’t heard about that.” Outside of Tennessee, most did not.

With 0bama supporting the so called “99%ers” and various Hollywood elites saying that those now protesting should resort to violence, how long before 0bama himself is endorsing the flash mob violence that parts of our society seem to be so fond of?

Wisconsin. This Summer. 4th of July picnics and then our State Fair. Not many outside of our state heard about this, either...

If you’re in the K-ville area, did you know we have an East TN Freeper group which meets for lunch the first Wednesday of the month?

What happened in Knoxville was an appalling racist hate crime.

But it was not a riot. It was five thugs committing a very private crime.

Some of the other incidents were, but not the TN case.

BTW, this is not particularly new. When I lived in Sacramento 10 years ago, it was common knowledge, though never making the news media, that the last night of the state fair was “Beat Whitey night.”

With AZ now having no permit CC, beat whitey night at the AZ state fair would have a bad outcome for the would be beaters.

In January of 2007 a young couple, Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian (above) went out on a date in Knoxville, Tennessee. On their way home, they were attacked and abducted. The man, Christopher, was raped. He was doused in petrol and set on fire. Eventually he was shot. His mutilated body is dumped on a railway line. He was the lucky one.

Channon – the girl – was not only forced to watch the rape and horrific murder of her boyfriend, she endured several days of being beaten, gang raped and sodomized. After being forced to perform fellatio on of her attackers, they forced her to drink bleach to destroy DNS evidence. They took turns urinating on her, they she was strangled to death and stuffed into a bins where she was eventually found days later by shocked police.

You should have posted the ‘female’s’ picture, too. She was also black and filled witrh demonic hate.

Yes. She wasn’t pictured in the article.
I just wanted to get out here their pictures and what they did to the couple. (which wasn’t mentioned in the OP article)

I wonder if they were raised by single mothers on welfare. Mothers turn their son’s into animals by not giving a damn about others, especially other races...due to the race pimps like Jackson, his son and the rest of the mostly black men in the political pimping business...Including the president and the racist naacp, southerm poverty law center, aclu and the rest of the scum of the earth..They surely are from a different planet and heading for hell.

The articles correct title is “Racial Violence”. Not what you posted.

Additionally you appear to be stretching the definition of the term “riot”. The Tennessee crime was certainly an atrocity, but hardly a riot. Misleading.

You are very perceptive, m'Lady.

I used to spend time in Skokie, IL when working 'home office' tasks with a pharmnaceutical company. I listened to some very good sermons from Jesse Jackson back then (the late seventies, early eighties) on radio. Back then Jesse was pro-life, or so he pretended. I cannot imagine what the impact on black kids growing into their teen years could have been listening to the sermons then and then living through the duplicitous crap Jesse has sold his soul to support! The deomcrfat party obviously saw quickly his weakness and exploited to their benefits ... and Jesse has 'profited' ... in this life, but may God have mercy upon him, he is a servant of the most lw presently.

The news is broken. News organizations are too incompetent to assimilate facts and report on them. The oil and gas boom in North Dakota and adjacent areas should be on page one everyday. The news industry is broken.

I live in a semi-rural area of far southwest Knox County, about 22 miles from downtown Knoxville, TN. I always cary a loaded gun in my car, keep another in my bedside table, and have two large black and white dogs, on an 85 lb. Pitador and the other an 8 mo. old black and white Great Dane, who’s now about 80 lb. I had three burglaries from 1987 to 1995, when shall issue CCW was adopted, and not another since. Fortunately, I have never had to even display either gun in anger.

Excuse the hell outta me, Mr. Webster. Four young people brutally raped and killed, another one lucky enough to escape the same fate, but the important thing is that I spell the town right. We FReepers are so lucky to have you out there, pointing out our mistakes. We really appreciate it. /sarc

I’m hoping, but the powers that be are throwing up one roadblock after another to stop it prior to it going into effect come November.

If they do, we’ll just open carry like the thugs do! :)

Owned a house in Lynn, Mass back in the 70's, and had a CCW permit. Some person attempted to break in once. The second time I came home and saw that some person had knocked a panel out of the garage door and damaged the entry door to the main house.

I kept a Deer Slayer behind a sliding panel loaded with 00 buck after the first attempt. I grabbed it and jacked a round the perp did a quick retreat out the back door, was never bothered again.
