Hiding Black Interracial Crimes

If you're like I am, you've heard scores of media reports about the 2006 Duke University rape case, in which three white lacrosse players were falsely accused of raping a black stripper at a wild party at the home of one of the team members. These guys, convicted by the news media and Duke faculty, were later found innocent. It turned out that Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong was running for re-election. In seeking the black vote, he concealed DNA evidence that would have exonerated the lacrosse players.
You might remember hearing scores of stories about the 1998 murder of James Byrd, a black man who was stripped, chained to a pickup truck and dragged through the streets until he was decapitated in Jasper, Texas. The incident provided fodder for the NAACP and others to attack then-Texas Gov. George Bush, during his 2000 election campaign, for not supporting hate crime legislation. It turned out that two of Byrd's murderers were sentenced to death, and the other, life in prison.
I don't know about you, but it was just recently that I heard about a gruesome murder in Knoxville, Tenn., that is far worse than the false charges in the Duke rape case and is at least as horrible, if not more so, than the dragging death of James Byrd. Unlike the Duke rape case and the Jasper lynching, the national news media's coverage of the interracial Knoxville murders paled in comparison. On Jan. 6, 2007, University of Tennessee student Channon Christian and her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, were carjacked and kidnapped in Knoxville. Both of them were later murdered.
According to a 46-count indictment, suspects Darnell Cobbins, Lemaricus Davidson, George Thomas and Vanessa Coleman, all blacks, are charged with committing rape, including sodomy against Christian and Newsom, both of whom are white. After being raped, Newsom was shot several times and his body was found burned along nearby railroad tracks. Christian was forced to witness her boyfriend's rape, torture and subsequent murder before she was ultimately raped, tortured and murdered. The police discovered her body inside a large trash can in the kitchen of the home where the murders took place. Before disposing of her body, the murderers poured bleach or some other cleaning agent down her throat in an effort to destroy DNA evidence. Trial dates have been set for next May.
What have we heard from the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others who rushed to judgment and outrage as they condemned whites in the cases of the "Jena 6" and Don Imus when he referred to the Rutgers ladies basketball team as "nappy-headed ho's"? Where were the national news media and public officials? You can bet the rent money that were the victims black and the perpetrators white, Knoxville would have been inundated with TV crews, with Jackson, Sharpton and other civil rights spokesmen and politicians from both parties condemning racism, possibly blaming it all on George Bush.
According to the 2004 FBI National Crime Victimization Survey, in most instances of interracial crimes, the victim is white and the perpetrator is black. In the case of interracial murder for 2004, where the race of victim and perpetrator is known, more than twice as many whites were murdered by a black than cases of a white murdering a black. The failure of civil rights leaders, people like Jackson and Sharpton, as well as politicians to vocally condemn black-on-white crime -- and the relative silence of the news media in reporting it -- is not simply a matter of double standards. It's dangerous, for it contributes to a pile of racial kindling awaiting a racial arsonist to set it ablaze. I can't think of better recruitment gifts for America's racists, either white or black.

Interestingly, white-on-black rape is statistically non-existent in America, something like five or ten cases a year in the entire country. I couldn’t even guess as to a reason for that; almost amounts to some sort of a racist policy amongst rapists...
The answers are simple, Jackson, Sharpton et. al. are racists of the worst kind, just like they claim all white folks are. They massed thousands to protest in Jena Louisiana to protect thugs who were guilty of attempted murder but are dead silent not only on the Knoxville case, but every other case of black on white crime. And that sort of crime happens EVERY day in this country. But Jackson and his fellow traverlers cant get rich on that sort of thing.

Yet the AA community is inundated with claims of the opposite; and, unfortunately, many believe it.

DAVIDSON MISTAKEN FOR CHRIST
Victoria Summers (Knoxville) - Lemaricus Davidson has amassed a Christlike following and is often mistaken for the Christ himself, sources within Knoxville County Jail and close to the defendant report.He already had a legnthy record and noteable thug reputation, a source from within the Knoxville District Attorneys office who spoke on the condition of anonymity said. So, the alleged robbery, kidnapping, rape and murder of Channon Christian and sodomy of her alleged boyfriend Christopher Newsom, were huge notches under his belt.In an attempt to quell Davidsons local popularity and growing national celebrit(ism) emerging in many urban communities, state prosecutors announced plans to prosecute the sexy ringleader in the fatal double carjacking case third on the trial list and lead the prosecution of the case against them with his younger brother, Letalvis Cobbins.Cobbins, who recently held possession of the #1 position in Kirkland Perkins Hardest Ghetto Black Male Felon Bragging Rights competition for three consecutive weeks, is also enjoying a great deal of new ghetto celebrity from the January carjacking, kidnapping, rape and murder he is charged in.
Davidson has managed to fuse his brash thuggism with a new spirituality that embraces elements of Islam, Yacub 7 Ali Sun Worship and Tupac Shakur. Hes arrogant but approachable. Everybody wants a chance to talk to him.
Apparently not everyone see these guys as criminals.

“I couldnt even guess as to a reason for that; almost amounts to some sort of a racist policy amongst rapists...”
Not even a guess? Look around. How many white men do you see dating black women? It happens but not nearly as often as white women dating black men. The answer is that there is very little sexual attraction between them.

Good story. But this has long been obvious to even the most casual observers of the media in contemporary America. It’s just another reason, fewer and fewer Americans have any faith at all in the MSM, another reason why the traditional media are dying: not only do they not tell the truth, they do all they can to hide it.
The Knoxville crime and the non-existent Duke “crime” both involved white college kids and minorities. The first was spiked and suppressed, the second was in the headlines for weeks. ‘Nuff said.

Anybody who views this particular crime as ghetto bragging rights needs to be executed.

The night of terror began December 14 when two men burst in on the group of young professionals, in their twenties, and held them at gunpoint. While rummaging through drawers and shelves for valuables, the thieves found an engagement ring.
"That's for you," Jason Befort reportedly told his girlfriend as they huddled together in terror. She hadn't known about the ring before the thieves found it. "I was going to ask you to marry me," he told her.
After driving their prisoners to an ATM and forcing them to withdraw money, the thieves then took them to a deserted soccer field.
There they ripped the clothes from the two women - including Jason Befort's fianceé - and raped them as the three men watched. Afterwards, they forced the two women to perform sex acts on each other, and the three men to have sex with the women. Finally, the five prisoners were ordered to kneel on the ground and were shot execution-style. Only one survived. It was Jason Befort's fianceé. She walked more than a mile, bleeding and naked, through the snow, before finding help.
All Wichita is now abuzz over the grisly quadruple homicide. Yet the story remains virtually unknown outside Kansas - even though the racially charged murder comes at a moment when talk of hate crimes has reached a fevered pitch. "The investigation has found no evidence of a racial motive," a spokesman for Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston told FrontPageMagazine.com. Her office characterized the motive as robbery.
The five victims were certainly robbed. So was Matthew Shepard -- the gay man whose gruesome murder in October 1998 became a national media obsession.
But why was Shepard's murder treated as a hate crime, while the killings in Wichita are not?
The four people killed on that soccer field were only the final victims in a week-long crime spree, for which two brothers -- Jonathan and Reginald Carr-have now been charged. In the days before the soccer-field killings, the brothers allegedly robbed a man at gunpoint outside a convenience store and murdered a 55-year-old cellist near her Wichita home.
In a just society, where all are treated equally before the law, there would be no need to dwell upon the fact that all the victims were white, while the Carr brothers are black. But in a society such as ours, where the government has seen fit to mete out different punishments for identical crimes, depending upon the skin color, religion and sexual habits of the perpetrators and victims, we are obliged to raise the question of race.
If two white men subjected five black people to an extravaganza of horror such as unfolded on that dark soccer field in Wichita, can there be any doubt that the media would be screaming "hate crime" from coast to coast and that everyone from Kweisi Mfume and Jesse Jackson to Bill and Hillary Clinton would be calling for stricter hate-crime laws?
On Wednesday of this week, the MTV network interrupted its regular schedule to air nearly 20 hours of special programming about hate crime, beginning with a documentary about the Matthew Shepard murder.
But the four people executed on that soccer field in Wichita -- Heather Muller, Jason Befort, Aaron Sander, and Bradley Heyka - were not among those featured. The indifference of government, media and civil rights leaders to crimes such as those alleged to have been committed by the Carr brothers send a clear message across America that some lives matter and some lives don't. They send a message that the lives of Matthew Shepard and James Byrd the black man dragged to death in Texas in June 1998 are considered more valuable by our government than the lives of those four young people, buried and forgotten, in Wichita.
If that is what hate crime laws are intended to teach us, then it is time to put an end to hate crime laws.

The NAACP should be run out of business just as the Klan was.
The NAACP and the Southern Poverty Law Center are both shakedown artists where the money that goes to those organizations trickles up to the top and is never seen again. Hooks embezzled thousands of dollars from the NAACP yet he is lauded as a hero by the MSM.

The answer is simple: White men and even women are evil unless they are homosexual. White men in particular are the cause of every problem in the USA and are to be treated as buffoons and idiots on television and in the movies. Not one crime show will put a black actor in a criminal role, blacks are only shown on television in positive roles, like the stern talking Allstate narrator while he presides over white folks crashing their cars all over the screen. Black families are shown as strong and stable, there are no black families shown being led by women with every child having a different last name, or a grandmother trying to raise babies. Jena, Louisiana becomes the epicenter of racial injustice when black thugs gang up on and nearly kill one white teenager. Yet very similar crimes in Knoxville and Wichita go unnoticed and unreported in the national media because it would “reinforce stereotypes.” Well, those stereotypes have a reason for existing....they are a fact of life.
Finally, I imagine the District Attorney position in Kansas is elected as it is elsewhere. Vote that dunce out in 2008 and get someone there who will enforce the law equally. Mike Nifong found out justice can work both ways.

The media view their readers as mob mentality morons. They hide the black on white crimes and they hide the Muslim aggression going on worldwide by calling them “insurgents”, “ethnic Albanians”, etc. and never, ever identifying their religion. Meanwhile, those violent groups profit from being “victims” even as they attack us regularly.

It is. Nola spends a lot of her time sqashing investigations of criminal conduct in Tiller the Baby Killer's abortion clinic (when she isn't busy ignoring hate crimes). But, she is not my county's DA. I get no chance to vote her out.
I’m surprised the ratio isn’t higher than >2:1
