Clarksdale man's home torched and tagged
Fox Memphis ^

Posted on 03/25/2014 7:46:54 PM PDT by TigerClaws

Early Saturday morning John King's Clarksdale home was tagged, torched and set on fire. He's calling for the FBI to get involved in the investigation saying that his house was torched because of the color of his skin.

King is disabled. His body is wracked with arthritis and gout. He has trouble getting up the steps of what is left of the only house he has ever owned. ****

"Everything is destroyed and they took the time to write get out 'cracker' on the wall," King said. "They also sprayed a star on the wall. If you are willing to take the time to write get out 'cracker' on my wall then yes that is a hate crime."

I prefer to call it a crime. It’s a serious crime, and the perps should do an extended bit of hard time for it.

Hate crime is newspeak to cover what it really is, something which needs to be hidden for the benefit of the politically correct dunderheads.

I would call it a terroristic threat.

Why would he think that the FBI would be interested? The FBI is part of the Department of Justice.

I have to assume that King is white. I do not know why the story does not mention his race.
The term “cracker” refers to white slave owners, not blacks.

Clearly he did something to antagonize a poor misunderstood youth.

We clearly need to have a dialogue so he can understand his role in creating this situation.

Great place for Blues Festivals, not so great place to live (especially if you're white).

White alone, percent, 2010 Clarksdale: 19.5% Mississippi: 59.1%

Black or African American alone, percent, 2010 Clarksdale: 79.0% Mississippi 37.0%

I assume Clark is white?

Otherwise, if he were black and someone spayed the “n” word, it would be national news.

Look at all the attention the hoaxes have gotten! National news, “teach-ins,” candlelight vigils, wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth! For a HOAX...nevermind!

But for Clark? Think this will make national news?

Note that the Talking Head was black, that he asked “...was this a ‘prank’ or arson?”
Given that the perps are probably black, and that the talking head so assumed, is the talking head also racist?

Had whites torched a black residence, I do not think any talking head would have called the event a “prank”.

Dat talking head, Him be wacis!

The news report video at the link, clearly shows that John King is a white man.

Is it Clarksdale where the black homosexual man was running for mayor, was found murdered, and everyone jumped to the conclusion that it was a white person hate crime, but it turned out to be another black homosexual who also stole his SUV? I don’t know why a white person would even live there, I do know most of the whites there send their kids to private school.

I didn't hear about that incident. I can tell you this, "hate crimes" against whites, committed by blacks, will never be prosecuted by this administration, especially considering Eric Holder tends only to look out for those he calls 'his people'.

It seems black nationalists have declared war on whites and feel emboldened by the current atmosphere of tolerance toward mob violence against whites.

I think the term “cracker” was originally a derogatory term for lower-class whites, but now used by black Americans as a term for whites in general. Probably there were not many slave owners among the pre-1865 crackers.

That’s infuriating. The man’s home and his possessions are destroyed, but some azzhole calls it a “prank” because the grafitti said “cracker” instead of “nigger”?! It would have Sharpton, Jackson, Holder, and the national news there blowimg it up if it had been the opposite. NO one would be calling it a “prank”.

Oh, I could give you lists a mile long of black on white crimes, including serial murder and some of the most atrocious crimes including utterly inhuman torture. Black on white rape alone is app 37,460 for the year 2005, while in that year, white on black rapes were less than 10-statistically 0%. But the big story was the Duke lacrosee players, falsely accused of rape, by a woman now in prison for murdering her boyfriend with a knife.

Just this year, amd the last of 2013, there was a spate of black teens raping, and often assaulting or even murderimg, elderly white women-70yo and above-including a nun in the parking lot of her church, during which she was also beaten so badly that her jaw was broken.

Google the Knoxville Horrors, the Witchita Massacre, Autumn Pasquale, 88yo WWII vet Delbert Benton,the Zebra serial murders, the baby shot in the face in his stroller, the young boy blowtorched to death by a black female, and so many, many more you'll never hear about in the MSM. Google this acronym to learn more-SBPDL.

More whites are murdered by blacks every year, than were murdered in the entirety of American history, including before the end of Jim Crow, amd often in ihuman, savage, torturous ways.
