Debunking HuffPos Chris Lane Killing Narrative
FrontPage Magazine ^ | August 23, 2013 | Jack Kerwick

Posted on 08/26/2013 4:12:56 AM PDT by SJackson

In “Reinforcing the Self-Serving Myth that Blacks Kill Whites Because They’re White,” Earl Ofari Hutchinson—Huffington Post writer, MSNBC contributor, and a co-host for Al Sharpton’s radio show—addresses the cold-blooded murder of white Australian Christopher Lane by black teenagers in Oklahoma.

Although “there is not a shred of evidence or even the hint that [the] killing of Lane was racially motivated,” Hutchinson asserts, right-wingers imply otherwise. Theirs is a “false, self-serving,” and “cheap ploy” to marginalize “civil rights leaders” while promoting the “myth” of a national press determined to conceal an “epidemic” of black-on-white killing.

In reality, the “miniscule” number of whites murdered by blacks each year consists of victims of “garden-variety street crime” who are “perceived to have valuables…that poor blacks aren’t likely to have.”

To Hutchinson’s analysis several replies are in order.

First, contrary to his assertion, there most certainly is evidence that the punks that murdered Lane were motivated, at least in part, by animus toward whites. According to The Daily Caller, one of the suspects, James Edwards, had tweeted the following just a few months ago: “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.” Shortly after George Zimmerman was acquitted of any wrongdoing in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Edwards tweeted that he had “knocked out 5 woods”—i.e. “peckerwoods,” a derogatory term for whites.

Second, Ilana Mercer, the daughter of a South African rabbi and former anti-apartheid activist, is also a World Net Daily writer who recently established beyond doubt that, sadly, the “epidemic” of black-on-white violence is anything but a myth.

In “Who’s Killing Whom? Speak Up, O’Reilly!” Mercer commends Bill O’Reilly for noting that blacks, at just 13 percent of the population, constitute nearly 40 percent of those convicted of violent crimes and 36 percent of all murderers in America. However, she is quick to castigate the Fox News star for failing to comment on the color of interracial crime, of “deflect[ing] from the white-hot issue of black-on-white violence.”

“You see,” Mercer remarks, “blacks are also more likely”—far more likely—“to murder whites than the reverse.” Citing Bureau of Justice Statistics data, she concedes Hutchinson’s point that whites and blacks both are much more likely to be murdered by members of their respective races than by those of another race. Yet she immediately observes that “a hell of a lot of whites are killed by blacks, while few blacks are offed by whites.”

Regarding “stranger homicide”—you know, the kind of killing to which Chris Lane succumbed—Mercer draws our attention to the fact that “blacks murder whites four times more often than whites murder blacks.” The real white-on-black murder rate is most definitely even lower than statistics suggest, for Hispanics are identified as “white” when they are perpetrators. However, when they are the victims of interracial violence, Hispanics are treated separately from whites.

The phenomenon of black-on-white murder is no myth. It is a reality as pronounced as it is hideous. Doubtless, the Hutchinsons of the world identify it as “myth” because it fails to accommodate their self-serving myth, the fiction that always and forever blacks are the prey, not the predators, of whites.

This brings us to the next point.

Even in conceding that blacks do indeed murder whites more often than the reverse, Hutchinson still can’t resist interpreting this fact in the light of his myth of perpetual black suffering: Whites “are perceived to have valuables… that poor blacks aren’t likely to have.”

Notice, Hutchinson is hereby legitimizing what he in other contexts he would surely decry as “racial profiling.” He tells us that black criminals seek out white victims because they “perceive”—they assume—that, because the latter are white, they will also have “valuables.”

So, without realizing it, Hutchinson undermines his own argument and inadvertently acknowledges that, after all, there is a racial angle to black-on-white murder.

Hutchinson’s analysis is also wide of the mark in his predictably leftist compulsion to identify criminality, including the most cold-blooded and horrific of murderous activity, as a function of poverty. But while poverty can account for why a poor man would rob another, it emphatically does not account for why one would murder another.

Nor, for that matter, does it account for other species of black-on-white violence—like rape.

In her World Net Daily article, Mercer reiterates some telling figures that she first visited in her book, Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2005, blacks “were responsible for 36 percent of the 111,490 incidents in which whites were raped.” At the same time, “not one black woman or man—0.0 percent—was ravished by a Caucasian.”

If only Mr. Hutchinson was right, if only the black-on-white violence of which the poor, unsuspecting Chris Lane was the most recent victim, was a myth. It is not. It is an evil of the first order that all decent people, and God-fearing folks especially, must repudiate unequivocally.

And we must be just as resolved to repudiate Hutchinson and his fellow ideologues—people like Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, and, yes, Oprah Winfrey—who, in spite of being well positioned to decry this wickedness, have actually sought to fuel the flames.

Dripping from their hands is the blood of many innocents.

Actually, this is not 40% but well over 50%.

I'm in never never land ... this is almost a carbon copy of the opening comments all during the st. traytray articles .... just change the color. ...

Although “there is not a shred of evidence or even the hint that [the] killing of Trayvon Martin was racially motivated,” this writer asserts, black leaders imply otherwise.

The narrative they are trying to create is that saying blacks shoot whites out of racism is RASSISS.

You aren’t a rassiss!, are you Mr. Sheeple?

Yeah, that baby in the stroller was loaded....../s

Great article....wish there were more journalists with the integrity to break from the propaganda and report the actual truth.

Just set aside the black on white crimes with a possible economic motive for a moment.(Even though these robberies often involve excessive sadistic violence and murder against a helpless and cooperating white victims which is clear evidence of racial animus) And consider interracial rape.

Forcible rape is considered to be a hate crime against women by most sociologists, criminologist, and all feminists, because the true motive behind it is not lust but hatred and power and the desire to humiliate,harm and degrade the victim.

Black on white rape is epidemic compared to the reverse. The hate ratio is around 14 to 1. There is a reason for this as Eldrige Cleaver, one time leader of the Black Panthers and sell professed serial rapist of white women explained:

““Rape was an insurrectionary act. It delighted me that I was defying and trampling upon the white man’s law, upon his system of values, and that I was defiling his women – and this point, I believe, was the most satisfying to me because I was very resentful over the historical fact of how the white man has used the black woman. I felt I was getting revenge.....I crossed the tracks and sought out white prey. I did this consciously, deliberately, willfully, methodically.”

http://blackracismandracehatred.blogspot.com/2012/01/interacial-rape-and-sexual-homicide-as.html

And in sexual homicide where the white victim is hate raped and murdered, often horrifically so, the black on white hate ratio is 48 to 1.

And in the category of sexual homicide of elderly white women there is the astounding statistic of NOT ONE white sexual homicide of an elderly black in modern times, compared to hundreds and hundreds of black sexual homicides of elderly white women!

http://blackracismandracehatred.blogspot.com/2012/08/104-elderly-white-women-hate-raped-and.html

The craven “liberals” who deny and therefore enable and support this obvious scandal, have the moral integrity of a neo Nazi, Holocaust denier.

I haven’t read any of the books that Earl Ofari Hutchison wrote about the “black experience” but it sure seems he has made his living by being a professional racist.

Black males aged 14-55, the group most likely to commit violent crime, are less than 3% of the US population. Then you have to remove from that pool the ones already in prison, overseas in the military, in hospital, or are law abiding.

Let's do a little experiment. We'll send a well-dressed, obviously black person around a number of white-dominated areas of the country, and we'll send a well-dressed, obviously white person around black-dominated areas, and we'll see what happens. Who would be in more danger from assault and possibly murder? I live in a part of the country with a very small black population.

But black thugs are constantly in the local news for committing various crimes up to murder. A black man from Milwaukee was recently arraigned for murdering his white girl friend in a small town, Black River Falls, close to where I live. I cannot recall a local case of a white thug,(and there are white thugs/criminals in the area) assaulting and/or murdering any of the black residents.

Black people are in little or no danger from walking around my white-dominated area. (However black people here are in danger from other black people. There have been several black on black murders in the last few years despite the small black population.) Could the same be said of whites walking around black-dominated areas? How many white people would take that risk? Very few.

Numerous black-on-white attacks have happened recently.

It seems the officials rush to microphones with:

but

It brings to mind the almost-mandatory 'it is not terrorism' disclaimer rushed to the media from the FBI for criminal acts committed by those associated with the Religion of Peace. RE: Shoebomber, Boston Bombers, et al.

Many of the black spokespersons, mouths, politicians, loudmouths are doing their best to stir up race issues. The compliant media goes along with the incendiary sh*t-stirring.

Does it make a difference if it was “racist” or not? The man is still dead, murdered in cold blood, UNLIKE the Trayvon Martin case where Martin was shot in self-defense. And what are we to make of the presumption that a black being shot by a white is racist?

Maybe then, the 'white minority' can demand rights and privileges currently reserved for non-white minorities.

[I recall in 1973 a grad school prof told the class that if they were black and female, they were the most desired selectees for college-level jobs, females second, minorities third. Those of us who were white males were at the bottom of that 'food chain'.]

This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts I’ve been listening to can’t seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.. Taking some poor guy of mixed race including black doing his job and painting a target on his back to fullfill a socialist agenda.

.For certain since the not guilty verdict has been rendered the facts of this case are still being concealed by the media such as not using pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins.

The mixed area of modest dwellings that Zimmerman was a “watch captain” in is a mini US melting pot which includes a number of black families . All are struggling with single and groups of young blacks on the prowl., In some instances armed, preying on homeowners.in his area. Neighborhood watch areas are posted as such..That “gated “area wasn’t even examinined because it wouldn’t fit their agenda if true journalisim existed,because anyone wandering around in it green,blue,red,white or black is subjected o being questioedas to their purpose being there. Watchareas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. In gated areas it’s legal because it done on private rights of ways..And most importantly he never approached his attacker. After being instructed to discontinue his surveilance and return to his vehicle was doing so.When his attacker knocked him to ground and began beating him. ..

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, and a very dark skinned “hispanic” Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a racist episode.and of course ignored Zimmerman’s defence of a homeless black maltreated by a local police officer which resulted in the disciplining at Zimmermans insistance of the offending officer. The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the exclusive “gated” neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” . used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 160 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Meanwhile attacks by black youths seeking top peer approval on selected happless white victims which wound up in their death get ignored by the mainline socialist messengers MSM service. While black on black killings many of the age of the so called victim is likewise same-o same-o.

Obama is demonstrating that he and the socialists can whip up the black population to create civil strife should it be necessary if congressional investigating bodies get too close to impeachment time at a moments notice . That includes; Bengahzi, IRS,EPA, MSA, Windgate,solar panel gate, and yet untouched travelgate 2. And congress has gotten the message by treading lightly.

Talk radio has done a terrible job on this coverage had hosts been on thelball could have had guests who run these things nip this from the outset.

"professional racist"

I've read a number of his hate-tinged articles over the years. You might be correct..he might be a racist. But what he is certainly is someone who is a racialist. Not exactly the same thing as a racist, but close. A racialist sees everything through the prism of his or her skin color. You don't have to be black.... Al Gore and Bill Bradley are two racialists. They've both declared virtually everything Americans do is done with race in mind. I'm not kidding. Which leads one to ask: is doing gardening a racial thing? These clowns would have you believe so.

Virtually every article I've ever read from Hutchinson has been one where he has accused some white person of some form of racism causing great harm and distress to untold numbers of black people.And virtually every liberal black scribblers iterates Hutchinson's odious messages: white people are responsible for the problems of black people. I'm waiting for the article where Hutchinson accuses some black person of doing some wrong to some white person. But I won't hold my breath.

You're fooling yourself if you think non-whites would be a tenth as generous as whites have been. I have a feeling it'll be like it is now only even more "open season" on whitey if this demographic shift comes to pass.
