Skip to comments.It’s Not ‘Walking While White,’ It’s the Rodney King Syndrome (Moonbat spins Alabama mob beating)
Posted on 04/24/2012 7:59:04 PM PDT by Qbert
Justice for Trayvon mob beatings are now a rising cause for the right, with a horrific crime leaving one man in critical condition.
Elevating walking while white is the most absurdly tortured false equivalency someone can hoist as an answer to George Zimmerman killing Trayvon Martin. But thats what Erick Erickson was happy to legitimize when he drew attention to this post via Twitter.
And this is the third racially-motivated attack in which the attackers explicitly cited Justice for Trayvon as a motivation or excuse for the brutal attacks.
1. The Baltimore Beating. This was the videotaped gang attack on a drunk St. Patricks day reveler whose crime was Walking While White (Content Warning).
Baltimores Chief of Police says its not a hate crime. Hes very worried about the politics.
Theres one problem with that: the attackers say otherwise. The man identifying himself as the cameraman who giddily filmed the attack on the white tourist says
Lil Darren is clearly an idiot. Hes angry, too. His reaction to the Trayvon Martin killing triggered it, which reminded me of another situation that lit another city on fire.
I lived in Los Angeles during the Rodney King beating, trial and riots that engulfed part of the city. When King was beaten by police, which was caught on tape, the outrage was understandably red hot. The tape of the beating was played over and over again on TV. But when the venue to try the policemen involved was changed to Simi Valley, a bleached landscape where many police and firemen live, the outcome was set, many residents thought, including myself. When the verdict came down everyone knew what was coming.
When the National Guard was brought in, I was downtown as an independent writer and watched the tanks move in to the city. It was surreal.
The tragic beating of Matthew Owens, seen in the video above, which was fueled by a justice for Trayvon temper explosion, is the same sort of thing and its despicable.
What its not about is the ridiculous notion of walking while white. Theres no white man burden in America, though the rights been stoking this since affirmative action was born.
Its about fury.
Its about the righteous injustice African Americans have had to contend with for over a century. Mobile, Alabama, where Matthew Owens was beaten to within an inch of his life, has a deep history of racial bigotry and violence. That a mob in Mobile could relate to the gunning down of Trayvon Martin through violence shouldnt shock America.
Driving while black is part of the trying to hail a taxi in New York while being black, which is part of walking while black, all of which can lead to arrest, walking home, or getting killed, especially if youre wearing a hoodie.
"Theres no white man burden in America..."
Some might argue that almost being beaten to death by a rabid mob is a "burden", but hey...
oh yeah, we’re so racist here in Mobile, that we have a black mayor, who’s been elected more than once.
I call bull**it.
But isn’t Zimmerman Latino???? Can’t blacks tell the difference?
I can see the push-back on the horizon. It will be much more than they ever imagined. It might make the civil war look like a Sunday School picnic.
Mr. Marsh is attempting to rationalize away racially motivated attacks.
It may well be that he himself will have the opportunity to do so when he’s beaten within an inch of his life in a racially motivated attack.
At least he’d have possible brain damage as an excuse, if he continued to try to rationalize away racially motivated attacks.
But, as of now he has no excuse.
The unenlightened think that the poverty of Prichard and Mobile is the cause of whitey. The older people know better.
CCW are our friend.
The poverty of Prichard can be traced back to A.J. Cooper who bragged that he was going to destroy Prichard, especially the Alabama Village. I was raised there. It was a ‘white neighborhood’, mostly middle class families.
My grandparents worked their backsides off to make that home beautiful, with brick porches, and a nice yard.
When Granny died we had no choice but to sell out because even Prichard Police wouldn’t come out there after dark.
The house was demolished last year, because of the BLACKS who had lived in it destroying it.
I’m not racists, I just judge you by how you act.
I guess the two incidents earlier this month in Gainesville, FL didn't register to those folks counting "justice for Trayvon". There are probably even more that I haven't heard about. I'd love to know the real tally nationwide.
Going Goetz on an attacking mob of feral, diverse yoots is going to become very popular in 3...2...1...
Here’s an interesting posting from that blog:

As a recovered black nationalist (that use to condone this type of behavior by other black folks), I just shake my head. Because there is always some incident that causes the races to make sweeping indictments. I respectfully disagree with you TM about the cause of the fury. The cause is self-hatred. A self-hatred that is started many moons ago with slavery and was perpetuated by black folks throughout the decades. Let me tell yall something. Non-blacks cant fathom at times the DEPTH of black self-hatred. It has caused the light-skinned/dark-skinned black folk divide. The black hair in its natural state is ugly view with the black community. And it feeds into these false crusades against a perceived enemy. I hate myself so I really dont give a damn about someone else. Now anyone can have self-hatred. But it is an undercurrent throughout the black community.
Thats why I absolutely HATE what Sharpton and Jackson did. Its very easy to whip up those who have no love of self. And then those whipped up become heat-seeking missiles. But hey, it can be overcome. Happens all the time. We black folks are an emotional and expressive lot in general. Works for and against us at times. But in the end, it adds to the wonderful culture of America. Except when stoked black leadership for gain.
"I guess the two incidents earlier this month in Gainesville, FL didn't register to those folks counting "justice for Trayvon". There are probably even more that I haven't heard about. I'd love to know the real tally nationwide."
Marsh is a broad.
He is absolutely right. I know for a fact that blacks do not like dark skinned blacks and will call them derogatory names for such, and they will also make fun of a black person with “nappy hair”.
I heard and seen this with my own eyes directly.
This is the old and tired lie that black people can’t be racist. Like it was not racist when Holder told congress that only his people have civil rights and not whites. Inequality before the law is the hallmark of systematic racism IN POWER.
Thousands of victims of violent black racism would probably disagree that blacks can’t be racist. Race hate is race hate. Jacked up racists attack people of other races. Black racists go after whites, Asians and Hispanics.
It is actually a shame that politics has become such a major part of race!
Back in the 70’s, race was much less a factor, we looked at those with good character and welcomed them - especially in the military. It seemed to me a no problem then.
Today, the activist race baiters (Hello Jackson, etc..) tend to try to bring all of us into the same category, anti non our own race - such crap!. It just is and should not be a problem today.
If you really want to remove illegal (there will always be individual prejudice) prejudice, you have to also get rid of affirmative action laws. These laws only attempt to normalize things that may or may not have happened, usually with folks and businesses that have nothing to do with the law.
Oh hell, I give up, America seems to be lost these days!
I served with some black guys I would’ve given my life for. Now I’m wondering if they would’ve done the same. I’d like to think so.
This incident further strengthens the RKBA. I very rarely leave the house unarmed anymore.
Yes, It is a real shame! I spent most of my time with fellows that I had fun with (golf, booze, and other things) and it did include what is now considered blacks (back then they were just friends). It has become much more polarized these days though - due to those race baiters that live on animosity between the races.
Race relations has definitely gone downhill due to the MSNBC folks and their supporters. I hate them all!
The white kid in KS who was told by his black teacher he couldn’t answer any questions about black history, then the kid was followed by some black teens and set on fire.
Elderly white man in OKC beaten to death by a black perp.
Elderly white couple in Tulsa, OK beaten, wife raped (died the next day), man shot in face with BB gun, robbed.
All the incidents at various state fairs and on public streets last summer of black mobs descending on white folks and beating them.
yes, the list is indeed long. And I don’t care about whether these are specifically “hate” crimes or not. They are certainly not acts of love or respect.
This is nuts. Raging blacks beat up random white people because they are mad about Trayvon Martin getting shot. They scream racial insults and specifically say they are picking out white folks”... But it’s not racial?
Further proof that the PC police only recognize racism if they create it themselves, and it can ONLY be when a minority, preferably black, is the victim.
An officer pulls over a driver who ran a red light. The driver pulls a gun and the officer fires in self defense- the driver is black, officer white- automatically it is “racially motivated”.
Same situation but roles reversed- race is NOT an issue.
In my life I have known of a great number of areas where it was safe to walk as a black person but not safe to walk as a white person. I know of no area in America where the converse is true. Why exactly is it that I am supposed to be so concerned about white racists in America? BTW, I would hope that it isn't safe to do crime anywhere in America, black or white. But with John Corzzine and Eric Holder walking around free we all know that isn't true. Feel free to swipe and redistribute. View Source is your friend.
Local authority trying to convince everybody that this wasn't about race:
No indication that this was about race either...
I, for one, welcome our new Melanin Sufficient Overlords /.
Mobile is well on the way to being another Prichard. Get out if you can.
Yes the list is indeed long:
Speeches,videos, and writings of black racism and race hatred LINK
Black race hatred and the mass murder of 188 whites LINK
Black race hatred in “street crime” 301 whites murdered by 24 black serial killers LINK
216 whites murdered in their own home LINK
135 brutal attacks for being white on a public street LINK
104 whites murdered by blacks in 12 massacres LINK
All these links of documented cases of black on white violent crime can be accessed at the link below:
And this is barely the tip of the iceberg of black racial violence against whites.
Stuff and nonsense, "Taylor" (if that's your real name).
Your precious, race-obsessed "African Americans" are their own worst enemy. They themselves, with no outside coercion, create for themselves dysfunctional, thuggish, destructive "communities" which produce nothing but violence, ignorance, and squalor.
Sane people do not want gross domestic product of your "Black Community" to spill over into their neighbourhoods.
Quit blaming everybody else, Taylor. Quit whining, quit making excuses, Taylor, and quit demanding by threat of violence that other people pay for the abject failures of your "Community".
CLEAN UP YOUR ACT, Taylor, and you'll start to get the respect you claim to want.
I hope he does more than just shake his head ... and I pray that people pay more attention to folks like him, and less to violent racist demagogues like jackson and sharpton.
Did you know that a Saiga shotgun, properly tuned and polished, can get to a cyclic rate of around 350 RPM?
Some of them have been successfully converted to Class III full-auto, short-barreled weapons.
With a 12- or 14-round magazine or a 20-round drum, that could do some damage ..... and lots more controllably than with a Street Sweeper of 20 years ago.
“Im not racists, I just judge you by how you act.”
You don’t understand, if you are white you cannot talk about Mike Tyson biting off ears, no matter whether he bites off a white ear or even a black ear, to mention it automatically qualifies you as a racist. On the other hand, if you are black you can call Tyson whatever name you wish to call him and you can refer to white people as “Cracker”, “Whitey”, “Honkey”, “Redneck” or whatever else you like and you can be a rich standup comic with an audience full of stupid white people who pay to sit and have you insult them, those are the current rules.
I prefer the 30 round drum.
Thank you for the list thus far. I knew there were many more than 3 incidents.
Thanks for you list. Very eye opening. Of course your list is only the ones that have seen the light of day. Who knows how many other incidents are not reported on or covered up?
You are under the mistaken notion that they give a sh*t. The race hustlers don’t care the folks that they are agitating don’t care . The have a grudge for slights real & imagined and have been stirred to violence by the community organizers who literally provoke racial hatred for profit.
As a Marine, I played by one set of rules...
And, most of them are in the Constitution. ;)
living outside of Mobile now, got good neighbors who are
fellow Marines, and we’ve all decided...we ain’t retreating.
Gee, that would make each one who beat that man at least 100 years old!
First of all, none of them have "contended" through that. It's history. Secondly, "I" am not responsible for that. I just happen to have the same skin color of some who might, BUT I'M NOT THEM. So don't judge me by my skin color alone. Say, where have we heard THAT before?
If anyone tries to settle their righteous injustice on me, I will fight back, and some of us will be dead. I promise no less. Think it through.
Yes, the rules used to be different. June will mark fifty years since I boarded a plane for the first time in my life and flew to San Diego for Navy basic. In boot camp they used to tell us that if we didn’t like the way we were treated we could transfer “over the fence”, on the other side was Marine boot camp. Nobody ever raised his hand and asked to be transferred. Of course in those days if you really wanted to go home all you had to do was claim to be queer, gay still meant happy back then.
We had desired to move across the bay to Silvehill, but circumstances brought us to Texas instead. We are a few miles outside of a small town 40 miles north off Houston. That is as close as we could stand to being in a city again.
Yeah, we seldom got “tranfers” from the Navy, too much like work for most ;)
All kidding aside Brother, don’t you miss those days when gay did mean happy?
Did ya ever think it would fall apart like this?
Actually looked a land in Silverhill, and Dothan even. Both parents getting older tho, and too far away from “civilization” would be a death sentence.
Just have to hold what we got, all any of us can do.
We have named our place in Texas, Silverhill. It’s our little place in the country about 6 miles from town.
