Considerate Racial Predators

Posted By Colin Flaherty On September 10, 2013 @ 12:20 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 66 Comments

Before he bashed the 62-year-old Jeffrey Babbitt in the face this week in a New York park, leaving him with permanent brain damage, LaShawn Marten proclaimed: “I hate white people.”

He saved us the trouble of wondering if the attack was “racially motivated.”

Same for Nkosi Thandiwe. Last year in Atlanta, Thandiwe testified he learned to hate white people in college and that is why he killed one white person and hurt a few others.

And if anyone had any doubts about why a car full of five black people drove through the French Quarter just a few days ago assaulting white and gay people, they cleared that up by announcing their intentions with racial and sexual slurs.

But that is not how most racial violence happens.

Most does not come gift wrapped with racial expletives or press releases or Tweets that say “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.” As was the case in the recent Oklahoma killing of Chris Lane.

Neither do most perpetrators leave behind clues like a senior thesis at Princeton, where they accuse their white classmates of racism.

That’s why a crowd of 50 black people in Norfolk could beat up two reporters last year. And why their editor refused to even report the crime for two weeks. He said he had no evidence it was “racially motivated.”

Let’s give the trolls their due. A single episode of black mob violence in New York, or Atlanta, or New Orleans or Norfolk or Burlington, North Carolina is hardly enough to merit national attention.

But when these episodes of black mob violence continue over and over again; and when they happen exponentially out of proportion; and when many are on videos featuring the bad actors bragging about their exploits; even the brightest star in the MSNBC line-up is hard pressed to answer two questions:

What is going on with this epidemic of black mob violence all over the country? And how can so many editors ignore it?

Not just the racial violence in the Baltimores, Chicagos, Detroits, Phillies, and New Yorks. But also the Peorias, Springfields, Dovers and even Burlingtons of the world.

More and more people in these tiny corners of the world want to know too.

The Greensboro – Burlington area of North Carolina used to be Andy of Mayberry country. Today this area is a center of racial violence — and official denial. As was documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.

In the upcoming new edition, readers can use their smart phones to scan QR codes so they can see the riots on video as they read about them in the book.

Over the last two years, Greensboro has been the site of more than a dozen  episodes of large-scale black mob violence. Some of it on video. It got so bad prior to the Fourth of July this year that the Greensboro city council met in an emergency session to slap a curfew on the downtown area.

In addition to violence earlier this summer, they were afraid of a repeat of last year’s Fourth of July mayhem: 1000 black people rampaged through the streets of Greensboro, beating people up, destroying property, attacking police.  Tear gas and tasers took care of that. Some of it, anyway.

This was hardly the first episode of black mob violence, as the local TV news breathlessly reported in July 2012:

“We’ve uncovered a series — a series! — of mob attacks in the heart downtown Greensboro,” said the anchor for the WFMY news. “All of them planned through the social media. And I know it sounds unlikely but it has happened in Chicago and Philadelphia and Milwaukee and now right here in the Triad. Every single weekend this month.

Some might think it strange that hundreds of black people were storming through the busiest part of  a usually quiet city, creating epic levels of violence and mayhem, and it took the local news more than a month to notice.

Even then, never once reporting the race of the culprits: There were no printed signs. No epithets. No racist tweets. So it never happened.

At least one city council member acknowledged it in a back hand way: She said she hated to play the race card, but she had to point out the curfew would disproportionately affect black people.

Despite the curfew, the black mob violence in Greensboro continued with at least two major episodes after the curfew was imposed. Including one episode just a few blocks outside of the Maginot Line-like curfew zone.

Now quiet Burlington is trying to catch up.

In July, a mob of at least eight black people beat and robbed a man on a Saturday afternoon. Police soon arrested one person and are looking for the others.

The injuries may not have been “life threatening” as local police say, but to the victims, violent crime is life changing.

“If you look at the news accounts of this case of black on white violence, the police and press tell us this was not a major crime,” said Taleeb Starkes, author of The Uncivil War. “There was not much money involved. The victim lived. But one of the reasons these crimes happen so much is that we take them so lightly. This kind of violent crime is life changing and traumatic to the victim. If they lose a little money and no one gets hurt, its no harm, no foul. These predators are domestic terrorists and should be treated as such.”

Just two days before this robbery and beat down, a group of at least five black people broke into a Burlington home and assaulted several people.

“The victims described the intruders as five black males wearing black clothing; each had his face covered and was armed with a handgun.

According to police, several victims were physically assaulted with blunt force, and one was transported by Alamance County EMS to Alamance Regional Medical Center with injuries that weren’t considered life threatening.”

“Just another day,” said Starkes. “If you believe the city officials and the press.”

More and more do not.

“It’s not going to stop,” said reader David Troutman to the Times News in Burlington. “Are we another Detroit in the making?”

“Once again the culture of violence continues,” added Chuck Spring.

But for every commentator like Chuck Spring looking for answers, someone like Becky Thompson is willing to provide them: Conservatives are to blame for the racial injustice that has created the tsunami of black mob violence around the country.

“Chuck Spring and once again, you could help by paying living wages and start voting for jobs instead of voting against the people that need jobs by voting tea party. Obama has had a jobs bill since I believe it was 2011 but the republicans and the tea party are not interested.”

This home invasion was not too different from a robbery and break-in last July. A gang of black men robbed and assaulted a 79-year Burlington woman. Several of the men were eventually arrested and the victim said she would pray for them. She said she was thankful the men did not kill her.

Her Burlington neighbors were not quite as forgiving: “It took 7 of them to rob a 79-year-old woman,” said one reader to the local Fox affiliate. “Shame, they’ll probably get a slap on the wrist…’My boy a good boy. He ain’t do nothin’.”

And where media outlets permit comments on racially charged crimes like this — some do, some do not — self-defense is a popular them. “Break-in on me?” asked a reader. “As soon as the pistol is in my hands you had better be out of my range.”

But no matter how bad the crime, no matter how often leniency and clemency and more programs are tried and found wanting, some insist we have to continue. Danielle Smith posted her reply to the “get tough” crowd at the Fox News outlet:

You seem to have little faith not only in our justice system but in humanity as a whole. Perhaps these criminals aren’t the only ones to blame (though they ARE very much in the wrong and SHOULD be punished), but who is there to help them stop? Who will take the time to help rehabilitate?

Some version of this question has been asked over and over for 50 years. With still no answer.

More and more people are turning for answers to LaShawn and Nkosi, whom we may condemn for racial violence, but applaud for their illuminating and unflinching honesty.

KEYWORDS:
I'm wondering how a culture which condones violence, or even intolerance, against whites differs from a culture which advocates violence, or even intolerance, against Christians and Jews. If they simultaneously advocate political change based on violence justified by political or cultural grievances, aren't the perpetrators, and advocates, terrorists?

Before commenting on this thread, everyone needs to be aware that there are DU trolls, some of whom are long-time Freepers, who will call you a racist if you criticize blacks.

I’m afraid to say that one logical solution is voluntary resegregation, with well-policed common interaction zones. That would be far preferable to a winner-take-all race war.

American black citizens place African before American in their statement of heritage.

I’m all for shipping these America-hating racists to Africa one-way.

Simply stating that will encourage a gaggle of left wing DU racists to shortly show up and accuse me of racism.

I want Americans living in America. I don’t care what your skin color is.

That would be one logical solution, true. However, it would be a setback in the long run.

Another logical solution would be for the public school system as we know it to collapse. All of this starts in childhood. The children are poisoned with this white-people-are-evil attitude from a very young age.

In college I met a young man who happened to be black, and he was very belligerent toward me. Later, he apologized for his behavior and said that he thought I was racist, but since we were in a class together he eventually realized that I was not. He said that he was raised to hate white people, and that at the college had met so many white people—conservative to boot—that were not racists. He said he realized that he was racist and was working to accept white people, and that he really appreciated me for listening to him. After that class we never crossed paths again, but what was clear to me was that the “institution” of racism is government-sponsored.

It works like this: Teach blacks that whites are bad. Blacks treat whites badly. Whites start to get edgy around blacks...and at some point, it comes back to whites not liking blacks, which just proves to the blacks that they were right all along.

It starts in the schools. Get rid of the public school system and maybe we can start to heal this racial rift.

Of course, suggesting that public schools are bad is “racist.” Because without public school systems, the real racists—liberals—won’t be able to perpetuate their evil.

At first glance it might appear that way, but black conservatives will tell you that the melanin in their skin doesn't mean a damn thing to left-wing blacks.

Ideology is even more important to them than skin color. Why do you think they called Bubba 'the first black President'?

I believe it has been reported that Jeffrey Babbitt has died as a result of the attack.

Has the level of black-on-white violence increased, or it is just that the mainstream media is less able to suppress news of it because of the internet and social media?

"racist...criticize blacks"

That's been that way for as long as I can remember...over fifty years. In that time, no so-called black leader or any black person, however criminal their actions, could be criticized by any white person or be labeled a racist. The paradigm was: blacks good, whites evil or might be evil. The narrative was whites caused all black problems. Blacks, especially black criminals, were not responsible for what they did. Today black liberals and many white liberals still try to peddle that bs. But now most white people are sick to death of it. I doubt few sane white people now believe white racism causes the incredible crime and general dysfunction in the black community.

"resegregate"

Nah, most of the problems stem from about 20-25% that is the black underclass. Approx. 70-75% of black Americans are decent Americans. Clamp down heavily on the black underclass, and things will improve. Plus get rid of affirmative discrimination.

Things are good, thanks. Business is slowly growing despite the damage Zero’s doing to our economy. I think we’re picking up the slack from all our competitors who’ve thrown in the towel.

We’ve been through downturns before. Those who can somehow hang tough and stick it out, come out stronger on the other side.

Thos figures don’t jibe with the welfare usage and out-of-wedlock births (in fact, they seem transposed).

This racial violence is just out of hate, on full bellies. Wait until the EBT system collapses, and they are starving to death to see the REAL violence.

There is a culture accepted by many in the black community of doing nothing and expecting things from government. The bottom 20-30% drag down the rest of the black community through their crime and indolence. Eliminate the bottom dregs, and the top 70-80% will improve by not having the dregs around.

I just think you’re low-balling the number. Nothing racist; whites are very quickly catching up to them with their hands out for freebies. I believe the white participation in the permanent underclass freebie culture was THE driving force behind welfare reform.

Today those groups are breeding most of the native-born next generation; both groups went heavily for Obama twice, and they will support the Bolsheviks for decades to come.

What’s really disturbing is the numbers of citizens of all ethnicities (I don’t believe in the concept of race) who are now committed leftists. 30-40 years ago their numbers were still relatively small. Maybe 5-10% of the total population. Now they number around 20-25% of the population. When I was a child in the fifties and sixties, the numbers of America-haters, leftists, were very small. Now you have a very large number of haters and a growing number of citizens where America is just a place where they hang their hat.

I’m a bit younger, but I think this reflects an increasing number of people who don’t see themselves able to get ahead according to the “American Dream” concept (where hard work could give a decent standard of living). There is no doubt that my generation (born early seventies) is probably the last to have a standard of living where mothers could care for children and fathers could be sole breadwinners; professors warned us of this twenty years ago (as the cracks were really appearing, indicating that globalization would suck the life out of the US economy).

Socialism was always most attractive to people who felt marginalized economically.

You may believe it is but groups like National Black Republican Association don't.

I have a son-in-law who is a sole breadwinner...although his wife will work when their children start going to school. He’s in computer design and is real good at his job. But it is tougher today for just one breadwinner in a family situation. Nevertheless, even with a leftist in the White House, America is a great country and a great place to earn your living...if you have the right attitude.

I don't think I meant what you think I meant. I wasn't speaking of black conservatives and other assorted normal people.

“I have a son-in-law who is a sole breadwinner...although his wife will work when their children start going to school.”

That’s great; hard to do, but keeps traditional roles defined. I hope it works out.

“Nevertheless, even with a leftist in the White House, America is a great country and a great place to earn your living...if you have the right attitude.”

Let’s just start with having jobs available. Not only are people better off on welfare than in a low-paying job, in most of my state you couldn’t live here without considerably higher income. Before anyone says then those people shouldn’t be living here, I assure you that they know it and are fleeing in droves (the ones working or seeking work). We are being left with an underclass that does no work beyond breeding, and no way to fund it.
