PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too. It’s a book you must pick up. Names you’ve never encountered, stories you’ve never read about, all for one, unmentionable reason: black on white murder. We were never supposed to notice what’s happening. We were never supposed to catalogue the names and tell their stories. But we did. But we have. Their Lives Matter Too.

 

For the past few years, I’ve thought about this story on a daily basis. It’s a reminder white lives, sadly, don’t matter.

 

One of the first Somalian police officers in Minneapolis murdered a white woman who had called the police to report a possible sexual assault… talk about white privilege. [Ex-Minneapolis officer who killed Justine Damond sentenced to 12.5 years: Police were responding to Damond’s call to report a possible sexual assault., NBC News, June 7, 2019]:

Mohamed Noor, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted in the fatal shooting of an Australian woman who called 911 for help, was sentenced Friday to 12 1/2 years in prison.

Noor, 33, fatally shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond, on July 15, 2017, after Noor and his partner responded to Damond’s call to report that she thought a woman was being sexually assaulted.

Noor testified at the trial that he heard a bang on the side of the driver’s side of the squad car and thought Damond, a 40-year-old dual citizen of the United States and Australia, was a threat.

But a jury in late April convicted Noor of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. The jury found the former police officer not guilty of the top charge of second-degree murder.

Damond, a life coach, was to be married and had already taken the last name of her fiancé, Don Damond.

In court on Friday, Damond read a victim impact statement in the form of a letter to his slain wife-to-be.

“Dear Justine: I miss you so much every day, every moment. I don’t understand how such a thing could happen to you, to us,” he said.

Damond said the two of them had planned to go on vacation to Egypt in fall 2018, with hopes of conceiving a child on that trip.

“We both lived with our hearts open, caring for others,” Damond told the court. “Loving you had my heart grow in ways I didn’t even know it could.”

Don Damond’s mother, Sharon Sebring, also read a statement that was addressed to her son’s slain partner.

“I miss the joy that was in Don’s face. Now it’s gone since you were so rudely taken away,” she said. “The emptiness is profound.”

Defense lawyer Thomas Plunkett asked for just one year and a day in prison for his client, and filed 44 letters with the court in support of Noor.

Plunkett said Noor, a Somali immigrant, gave up a successful business career to become a police officer as his way of giving back to the community.

“As things got better the debt grew and Mohamed Noor wanted to pay that debt back,” Plunkett said. “That’s real integrity, That’s true merit.”

But Senior Hennepin County Attorney Amy Sweasy countered that such a light sentence would make Noor’s murder conviction equivalent to a misdemeanor DUI.

“Such a sentence would be wildly inappropriate in a case this severe,” Sweasy said.

Hennepin County Judge Kathryn Quaintance lauded Noor’s record of community service but said she couldn’t cut him any slack.

“The law does not allow leniency because somebody is a good person,” the judge said. “Good people sometimes do bad things.”

Quaintance sentenced him to 150 months in prison, minus 41 days in jail he’s already served.

Before Quaintance imposed the sentence, Noor told the court he could not be more sorry for what he did that night.

“These are the people I work to serve and that I harmed in the worst way possible. Again I apologize,” the former police officer said, his voice shaking with emotion.

“I can’t apologize enough and I will never be able to make up for the loss I called to Ms. Ruszczyk’s family.”

Damond’s death sparked outrage in the U.S. and Australia, and her family had said they were struggling to understand how she could call police for help and end up being shot dead.

The shooting also led to changes in procedures about when police turn on their body-worn cameras — neither Noor nor his partner had activated theirs — and led to the resignation of the city’s police chief, Janeé Harteau, who stepped down in July 2017 at the request of the mayor.

Noor, a Somali immigrant who had been on the job for two years, was fired from the Minneapolis Police Department after he was charged.

Noor was the passenger in the police vehicle and shot out the driver-side window. He testified that he fired after seeing what he said was fear in his partner’s eyes, and after seeing a woman in a pink shirt with blond hair appear at the partner’s window and raise her right arm.

Damond called 911 twice that night — first just after 11:27 p.m. to report that she thought she heard someone possibly being raped and that she thought a woman yelled out “help,” according to transcripts of the calls.

Damond then called police back shortly after 11:35 p.m. to ask where officers were and wondering if they had gotten the address wrong. No evidence of a sexual assault was found, officials have said.

The prosecutor, Sweasy, told the court on Friday she was moved that Damond lost her life because she called police believing someone else was in trouble.

The victim’s father, John Ruszczyk, had filed a $50 million federal lawsuit against Noor, Harrity, the city and police leaders, claiming a civil rights violation.

Three days after Noor was convicted, Minneapolis announced it would pay her family $20 million to settle the suit. Her family has pledged $2 million to a local charity focused on gun violence in Minneapolis.

No riots.

No national outrage.

Momentarily, it was a big story in Australia, but eventually it was forgotten.

With the insanity of the black riots over George Floyd, it’s important to remember Justine Damond and what happened to her in 2017 Minneapolis.

Her name is Justine Damond.

If white privilege, structural inequality and implicit bias were real, every white American would know the name Justine Damond.

PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too. It’s a book you must pick up. Names you’ve never encountered, stories you’ve never read about, all for one, unmentionable reason: black on white murder. We were never supposed to notice what’s happening. We were never supposed to catalogue the names and tell their stories. But we did. But we have. Their Lives Matter Too.

 

White privilege.

Systemic inequality.

Implicit bias.

These three terms, used to explain all problems blacks face in America – persistent and consistent victims of relentless white racism, which easily explains the inequalities they face in life – all melt away as actually existing when you consider how the corporate media (nationally and locally) cover black on white violent crime.

His name is Kevin Humes, a 35-year-old white male who lived in Atlanta. He was murdered in a drive-by shooting by a 15- year-old black male (more black suspects are expected to be arrested for the murder) as he walked home from an evening out with friends.

His story will barely make news local nightly newscasts in Atlanta, a reminder of the real privilege protecting certain racial groups from bias (based on the actual levels of crimes black individuals collectively commit). [15-year-old arrested in targeted robbery attack of man walking home in Buckhead; others wanted: Police believe the victim was the target of a robbery attempt., 11Alive.com, May 25, 2020]:

ATLANTA — A 15-year-old has been arrested in connection with an Atlanta murder investigation. Now, Atlanta Police are searching for additional suspects in the case.

APD said around 12:20 a.m. on May 16, the victim, Kevin Humes, was shot in the chest on Habersham Road NE. He died at the scene.

Police said a witness saw two people in a blue or gray vehicle yell “get him!” during the shooting.

Officers said an extensive investigation led them to identify suspects in the case and obtain warrants for felony murder. Police believe Humes was the target of a robbery attempt.

An online fundraising campaign created one week ago describes Humes as a 35-year-old who was “fun, genuine, caring and loved by so many people.” The GoFundMe page claims that he was walking home after being out with friends.

“Under normal circumstances Kevin would have called for an Uber but instead chose to walk given the current Covid pandemic. He was attacked less than a mile from his home,” the page reads.

APD told 11Alive that tips from Crime Stoppers tips were instrumental in assisting their investigation. The 15-year-old was taken into custody on May 23. More arrests are expected.

White privilege doesn’t exist. If it did, Kevin Humes would be a name you’d know and be able to recite exactly what happened to him on a spring night in Atlanta. Instead, you know the name of some white woman who called the police on a black bird watcher in Central Park (which became international news).

The rule of law, and standards governing civil behavior are antiquated relics of white supremacy when disparate impact is involved. Illegal street racing should be legal, w hen too many black people are arrested for participating in said activity. After all, a disproportionate amount of black people arrested for a given activity is a moral wrong, right? It’s a clear indication of white privilege, systemic inequality, and implicit bias, right?

Illegal street racing should be immediately legal in Atlanta, if those participating in the activity are overwhelmingly black (especially if they arrested as prior felons sporting semi-automatic rifles!). Otherwise, racism is afoot. [A designated area for Atlanta street racing? Maybe., Saporta Report, May 14, 2020]:

While Atlanta street racers burn up the city’s semi-empty roads, doing stunts for crowds of hundreds, the mayor’s considering a designating a racing spot instead.

One recommendation Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said she’s heard from Bloomberg Philanthropies (and one of her sons) is to consider a designated space for street racing in the city.

“That’s something we will explore and keep you posted, but meanwhile we will continue to monitor those [racing] hot spots in the city,” Bottoms told Atlanta City Council at a Thursday briefing.

State law bans street racing. And the city is sometimes liable for injuries on city property.

Mayor Bottoms “has charged her senior leadership to examine the facts, collect best practices and lessons learned from other cities and put a plan in place to address these gatherings,” wrote a spokesman after Bottoms’ briefing.

Northwest Atlanta District 9 City Councilman Dustin Hillis has his own proposal: he wants police to be able to go after event organizers and spectators. Drivers can already face charges like reckless driving.

Legislation he’ll introduce Monday will propose fines of up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail for people watching or organizing street racing events. He says the point is to stop the events before they start.

Hillis said he’d have to do some more research on designating an area for races, but that he doesn’t think his idea and the mayor’s idea are mutually exclusive.

Hillis said some groups of car enthusiasts just want to have informal “car show”-type events and aren’t trying to do something like burn up a $4,000 set of tires.

“But then from what I’ve seen and what I’ve heard from people that are in these groups is: designated area or not, they’re not gong to take advantage of that,” Hillis said. “That’s part of the thrill, of knowing you’re shutting down a state highway or the interstate and coming within inches of being hit by a car doing a doughnut.”

Maybe it’s no coincidence that by profession, Hillis is a nurse. He’s seen what crashes can do.

It’s those people who would seek danger on the streets, performing for a close crowd, that he says make his ordinance necessary.

Last week, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields said to Council that her department had not been ready for the uptick in racing that’s come with COVID-19.

APD spokesman Carlos Campos said the department is taking racing seriously.

“It’s reckless, lawless and has the potential to get someone hurt,” he said via e-mail.

“I think it’s important the public understand that we want to address this issue in a way that doesn’t result in innocent people getting hurt – we are not going to pursue these individuals in high-speed chases,” Campos said. “But we will identify them and hold them accountable for these antics.”

Chief Shields elaborated in an interview with Fox 5. No, high-speed chases aren’t the answer. She said that the only way to get people to sit up and pay attention is to impound their cars and ideally, put them in jail.

Who cares if the city (and taxpayers) could be liable for accidents that happen during this illegal street racing. All blacks in Atlanta have the right to participate in a faux Fast and Furious routine, with all semblance of law and order gone with the wind when you consider the ramifications of screaming disparate impact for those arrested in engaging in illegal street racing.

We call this all, black privilege.

How many cities across the US can this same article be replicated in?

Previously on SBPDL: In 2017 Louisville, Kentucky (a 71% White/23% Black City), Blacks Represented 82% of Individuals Arrested for Homicide

Even during the Coronavirus lockdown, black violence is unrelenting. Worse, taking down basketball rims hasn’t increased social distancing (blacks are disproportionately impacted by the virus int he city) nor stopped fatal/nonfatal shootings in Louisville among the black population. [LMPD: Louisville seeing uptick in violent crime, black youth homicides, WLKY.com, May 6, 2020]:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. —Five months into the year, and there have been 40 homicides across the Metro. According to LMPD Chief Steve Conrad, 8 of those victims were black boys under the age of 18.

“Schools, parks, community centers, obviously they are closed. Basketball rims have been taken down to stop that interaction between people,” Conrad said. These were all measures aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19.

But Conrad says they can’t pinpoint an exact cause or solution. The idea of a citywide curfew has been tossed around, but Conrad doesn’t think that’s the answer.

“We’ve had some challenges between these groups or gangs whatever you want to call them and we’re working to address them. I don’t know if I would call it a turf war, but there are definitely challenges between these two groups,” Conrad said.

DeMarrion Fleming is the founder of nonprofit organization Sowing Seeds with Faith. He works with black youths in west Louisville, and says he knew several of the young men who have been killed in recent weeks.

“Four of those kids have come through my program and two of those kids were innocent bystanders,” Fleming said.

Fleming said he’s advocating for gathering places to reopen so children have safe places to go and stay occupied. Many have been shut down due to COVID-19.

“I’ve lost six kids in three months. So, closing centers has cost me six lives, opening centers has not cost me anything. So, I’m going to take the other side of the risk now,” Fleming said.

March 23 through March 27 was supposed to be Youth Violence Prevention Week. Imani Smith is part of the youth implementation team with the Office of Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods.

Smith said they anticipated an uptick in violence during the pandemic, but says it is not fair to pinpoint one cause.

“You have to take into consideration that the slew of things coming about because of the pandemic, people are going to respond to it the way that they’re mental health allows them to,” said Smith.

There have been 118 non-fatal shootings in Louisville this year.

The Coronavirus shutdown seems to be accelerating black violence across the nation, with similar patters seen in Chicago, Baltimore, Memphis, Atlanta, New Orleans, Charlotte, Washington D.C., and Indianapolis.

But how can we blame white people for this increase in black violence, even when basketball rims come down?

As Albany, Georgia represents one of the worst spots for the Coronavirus outbreak in the South – because of a failure for blacks to socially distance at funerals at the Martin Luther King Memorial Chapel – another type of plague has also set upon the 74 percent black city. [Dougherty Co. coroner concerned about black on black crime, WALB.com, May 15, 2020]:

Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler is very concerned about the number of violent crimes in Albany lately. Especially the gun violence, that, for the most part, he said have been black on black crimes.

Fowler said something has to be done to stop deadly gunfire in the community.

Last week, a 16-year-old teen was killed and three friends wounded in a drive-by shooting in Albany.

This week, a 40-year-old father and grandfather was gunned down in another drive-by attack.

Police have made arrests in both shootings.

“And to make it so bad, it’s black on black crime. And it seems like nobody is really saying anything about it. Just another black going to jail, another black gone to the grave. Something needs to be said. Something needs to be done,” said Fowler.

It’s not only murder, recently a woman was wounded when bullets were fired into her home.

Two men were caught on surveillance video shooting at a car with women and children trying to get away from them, again, black on black crime.

“Shooting up the cars, shooting up one mother’s house, killing one another, it just doesn’t make sense,” Fowler said.

“I want to acknowledge we are having some gang on gang crimes,” Greg Edwards, the district attorney for the Dougherty Judicial Circuit.

Edwards said the coronavirus pandemic could be partly to the blame for the surge of violence.

“A lot of the instigation of these particular crimes has come over social media. I think the fact that people are sheltering in place and communicating more in this method is causing them to want to act out,” explained Edwards.

Fowler said national eyes are on Albany right now because it was one of the first coronavirus hotspots. He said now, with many people in Albany dying and sick from the virus, out of work, some hungry, that senseless gun violence hurts the city even more.

“Only thing you did is create another problem for two families. One family has got to now start going to court to deal with you. Then another person gonig to the grave with their loved ones. It just don’t make sense,” said Fowler.

Edwards said most involve teenagers and high caliber weapons.

Both Fowler and Edwards are asking the people of Albany to put the guns down and stop the violence.

How can we blame the problem of black people in Albany failing to socially distance and spreading the Coronavirus, as well as simultaneously engaging in horrific levels (dare we pandemic levels?) of gun violence so easily described as black on black violence?

Long ago we dubbed this the Detroit Corollary to Robert Putnam’s concept of homogeneity producing the most social capital in a community: in a heavily black community, social capital is inversely proportional to whiteness.

Normally the story of immigrant entrepreneur murdered in the USA would be immediately covered by every major corporate media outlet across the nation, since – logically – it would have been committed by some nativist, xenophobic white male mad about brown people taking jobs “Americans won’t do.”

In the case of Roman Kichigin, a 15-year-old white teenager who had a passion for his family and fixing up BMW’s, his murder barely made news in Charlotte, his adopted hometown.

His family was from Kazakhstan, and they immigrated to the United States where Roman was trying to sell the fourth BMW he had worked on rebuilding. His mom drove him to an apartment complex to show off the car to a potential buyer.

When they left, Roman would attempt to drive away (with his mother still in the car) having been shot.

He was murdered by Clifton Stanfill, an 18-year-old black male. [‘Full life ahead.’ 15-year-old boy shot, killed in Charlotte during robbery, CMPD says, Charlotte Observer, May 20, 2020]:

Roman Kichigin was less than a month shy of his 16th birthday when he was killed.

Buying BMW cars, fixing them up and selling them at a higher price had long been Roman’s passion and he was looking forward to getting his driver’s license. Finally he would be able to drive one of his cars himself, without a parent in the passenger seat.

The day he was shot, Roman had been about to sell the fourth BMW he had worked on himself, his cousin Alex Kichigin told the Charlotte Observer on Tuesday.

“He was going to drive to go see his girlfriend in Atlanta,” said family friend Mikhail Koval. “He was so looking forward to that.”

Roman died on Monday evening after being shot in an apartment complex parking lot on Briarhill Drive in northeast Charlotte, according to police. Koval said his family believes Roman was killed during an attempted armed robbery.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said officers arrested 18-year-old Clifton Stanfill on Tuesday. He’s been charged with murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, CMPD officials said. CMPD says the investigation is ongoing.

A car enthusiast and friend

Loved ones of Roman said that he was a caring, strong-spirited, brave Christian and looking forward to the rest of his life. He was in 10th grade at Union County Early College and had been hoping to get baptized after the coronavirus pandemic abated.

When the family moved to Charlotte from Semey, Kazakhstan in 2014, Roman — who was just 12 years old — helped out by taking care of his three younger siblings.

“Nobody asked him to do it but he would just cook something up if his parents were busy,” Koval said.

Koval met the Kichigin family when they first moved and helped them find an apartment and work out legal documents. He’s been close to the family and their relatives ever since, he said.

After the family moved, Roman bought his first BMW for $800, said his cousin Alex Kichigin, 19. It would be the first in a string of four BMWs that he would own and work on. Roman’s father, an auto body specialist, taught him how to work with cars in the garage, Koval said.

Roman’s obsession with BMW cars is a family one, his cousin said. It’s the only brand family members will own and at church, the family parks their BMWs in a line, he said.

Alex Kichigin says he and his younger cousin were inseparable.

It didn’t matter if they were racing Go Karts, going out for food, long boarding or going to car shows, they just wanted to be together, his cousin said.

“We trusted each other with everything,” Alex Kichigin said. ” … I don’t know anyone like that anymore”

Shooting in parking lot

The last car Roman had been working and intending to sell was a black-on-black BMW with “full bolts on” and the most expensive tires around, his cousin said.

“We threw a lot of money into our cars,” he said. “We didn’t mess around.”

The day Roman died, he was hoping to sell his car and made an appointment at the DMV, Koval said. Then, Roman had lunch with his father at his work place.

After, Roman and his mother went together to buy a phone, Koval said. They were meeting the seller, he said, and parked their car at the apartments on Briarhill.

Before he got out of the car to look at the phone, Roman gave his wallet to his mother, Koval said. His mother told Koval later there were two men in the parking lot waiting to meet Roman.

Shortly after, Koval said, Roman was shot. He attempted to drive away with his mother in the car, Koval said, and CMPD confirmed Roman was found injured inside the car, which had come to a stop on the side of the road. Roman’s mom, who was a pediatrician in Kazakhstan, attempted CPR before paramedics arrived, according to Koval.

Roman died later at the hospital, CMPD officials said.

Roman Kichigin is an immigrant story to the USA you’ll read about perhaps only here.

How he lived and how he died will be a tale told to only a few, because he was murdered by a black male in Charlotte, North Carolina.

He was a young white man, trying to build find his own slice of the American dream; unfortunately, his final moments on earth were being introduced to the American nightmare.

His name is Roman Kichigin.

Previously on SBPDL: Her Name Is [White Grandmother]: Black Illegal Immigrant from Kenya Suspected in Killing 12 Elderly Women (Potentially Hundreds More)

A glimpse of the future for white retirees. As white boomers enter retirement homes, you get a glimpse of what awaits you in this story.

Check your white privilege at the door…[UPDATE: Black Man Caught on Video Beating Elderly White Nursing Home Patients ARRESTED After Hero Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch Alerts Authorities, Gateway Pundit, May 21, 2020]:

Numerous disturbing videos were circulating social media showing a black Michigan man beating elderly white men and women in nursing homes.

Jaydon Hayden is reportedly from Westland, Michigan and beat elderly white nursing home patients for sport.

There are three videos right now on Bitchute showing the man beating white people.

The man is filming himself beating the seniors in their beds until they are bleeding.

Judicial Watch boss Tom Fitton said the watchdog group contacted authorities after he was alerted to the disturbing videos.

“This was also posted on my Twitter feed and Judicial Watch contacted authorities who then, in response to our concern, arrested this person. Thanks to those who helped us get this done.” Tom Fitton said.

All across this nation, people know what is happening, but are so afraid of publicly admitting reality.

We all know what would have happened if this were a white nursing home employee beating an elderly black man or black woman in a nursing home, so there’s no need to resort to talking about double standards.

As we long ago pointed out here at SBPDL, there is only The Standard, a one way street for blaming not just white individuals, but all white people exclusively for racism and racial attacks.

The name Tommie Lindh deserves to be shared across what’s left of the western world.

For those who still wish to see the perpetuation of western civilization must find in his final actions on this earth a courage worth remembering and sharing.

No.

That’s not right. 19-year-old Tommie Lindh was a man against time, daring to defend his people against the onslaught of tomorrow.

He is a hero too few will remember, and even fewer will forget. [Sweden: Sudanese migrant arrested for raping girl and killing teenager who tried to intervene, Voice of Europe, May 15, 2020]:

Police in Sweden have arrested a Sudanese migrant who’s suspected of raping a woman and murdering the Swedish teen who attempted to stop him.

Abubaker Mohamed, aged 22, was arrested in Härnösand earlier this week on charges of murder, gross rape, rape, serious illegal threats, and serious abuse.

According to a report from the Swedish news portal Samhällsnytt, Mohamed stabbed 19-year-old Tommie Lindh to death in a Härnösand apartment when Lindh attempted prevent him from raping a female acquaintance.

On Wednesday, the 22-year-old suspect denied the crimes he’s been charged with at a hearing at the Ångermanland district court. Following the hearing, Chamber Prosecutor Stina Sjöqvist told Swedish broadcaster SVT that Abubaker Mohamed is also suspected of committing two rapes, one gross and another of the “normal degree” against a victim the same Sunday the murder was committed.

Only halfway through the month of May, Sweden has seen two migrants arrested for murder and three migrants arrested for or found guilty of rape.

Days ago, Voice of Europe reported that a Kurdish migrant living in Sweden was charged with murdering his 17-year-old girlfriend, Wilma Andersson, after her head was found in a suitcase in his flat.

On May 2nd, a Swedish court ordered the expulsion of Afghan asylum seeker after finding him guilty of brutally raping a 14-year-old girl in Jönköping, Voice of Europe reported.

Days later, on May 8th, Voice of Europe reported on a 16-year-old Jordanian migrant was sentenced to time in a juvenile detention facility after being convicted of ten separate crimes, including the rape of a 13-year-old girl in 2019.

His name is Tommie Lindh. He was a 19-year-old Swede, a white teenager who dared intervene when an African immigrant tried to rape a fellow Swede, and was stabbed to death for his heroism.

His story will be told by few in the European Union and even fewer in the United States of America (or the United Kingdom).

But he got off of his knees and dared defend both his ancestors and his posterity by standing up for a fellow Swede who was being raped by an African immigrant. He would still be alive today if the elite of his country, in control of immigration policy, had put the interests of the Swedish people ahead of egalitarian concerns.

Rest in peace, Tommie.

Say his name. Remember it. Remember what he tried to stop, for his final actions (and the lack of interest in how he died) on this earth are highly symbolic of what’s happen to western civilization.

Shot. [Michigan militia puts armed protest in the spotlight, Associated Press, May 2, 2020]:

Gun-carrying protesters have been a common sight at some demonstrations calling for coronavirus-related restrictions to be lifted. But an armed militia’s involvement in an angry protest in the Michigan statehouse Thursday marked an escalation that drew condemnation and shone a spotlight on the practice of bringing weapons to protest.

But Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, a gun-control group, considers these protests organized by the ultra-right and not necessarily reflective of most gun owners.

While it’s legal to openly carry firearms inside some state capitols, Watts called it “dangerous to normalize this. Armed intimidation has no place in our political debate.” She said those carrying guns at protests are almost always white men, and are “a vocal minority of the country” that opposes the stay-at-home orders.

An overwhelming majority of Americans support stay-at-home orders and other efforts to slow the spread of the virus, according to a recent survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The visual of heavily armed protesters, mostly white men, occupying a government building to a measured response by law enforcement is a particularly jarring one for many African Americans.

It draws a stark contrast to the images that emerged from Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, when crowds of unarmed, mostly black men, women and children took to the streets in protest after a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown. Then, National Guardsmen mounted on military vehicles shot tear gas indiscriminately to disperse the crowds, further flaring tensions between the predominantly black community and law enforcement.

The Michigan demonstrators, she added, “are what happens when people of racial privilege confuse oppression with inconvenience. No one is treading on their rights. We’re all just trying to live.”

Chaser. [Police: Man angry about coronavirus closure attacks 2 people with machete, Associated Press, May 18, 2020]:

A Nashville couple were in critical care after a man attacked them with a machete because he was angry about shutdowns that were taking place during the coronavirus pandemic, police said.

Kelvin D. Edwards attacked Kevin Craft, 55, and his wife Leanne Craft, 50, on Sunday afternoon in a Public Storage in the city, the Metro Nashville Police Department said in a statement.

Edwards took the machete from his bin at the storage facility and continued striking the couple even after they were bleeding on the floor, police said. The victims were transported to a hospital after officers who responded to the scene used multiple tourniquets to control their bleeding.

Police said they found Edwards, 35, with his hands raised in surrender on the street outside the facility three minutes after they got a 911 call about the attack.

Investigators said Edwards, who is homeless, told them he attacked the couple to demonstrate his anger about the coronavirus shutdowns and his inability to get into Rescue Mission, an organization that serves homeless people. According to its website, the Nashville Rescue Mission has remained open to individuals without shelter during the pandemic.

Police said Edwards, who carries an Arkansas driver license, has been in Nashville since 2016. He had a prior felony vandalism conviction in 2017 and was also convicted for assault after spitting on two Davidson County sheriff’s deputies while in jail.

He was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder for the attack Sunday, police said. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.

Kevin and Leanne Craft are a white couple who live in the primary white Nashville suburb of Brentwood. Virtually every printed story about this attack has omitted the fact the attacker was black and the victims are white. All across the country, from Huntington Beach, California, to the Florida panhandle, overwhelmingly white crowds have protested the Coronavirus lockdown/quarantine/stay-at-home orders peacefully.

There’s been no violence.

But we are supposed to believe a black guy, who “randomly” assaults a white married couple in Nashville with a machete was upset about the Coronavirus lockdowns, and this was the primary motivation behind the attack?

To borrow a phrase from the first story, the lack of visuals of the victims in this black machete attack on a white couple is jarring.

In one week, just one week, the carefully choreographed concept of systemic inequality and white privilege (whatever you want to call it) would be washed away if every newspaper, every news website, every nightly newscast (national and local), and every cable news network was forced to abandon covering up the reality of black crime. Putting the blame of shocking levels of black criminality on poverty and white flight (redlining) would be retired by the endless repetition of seeing the faces of black criminals scroll across the screen of whatever medium for news you consume, starting with the story of what happened to the Craft’s in Nashville.

Every day is a propaganda battle: the enemies of western civilization have to win everyday, to perpetuate their paradigm.

We only have to win once, then the dam breaks for good.

PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too. It’s a book you must pick up. Names you’ve never encountered, stories you’ve never read about, all for one, unmentionable reason: black on white murder. We were never supposed to notice what’s happening. We were never supposed to catalogue the names and tell their stories. But we did. But we have. Their Lives Matter Too.

Were America a nation dominated by white privilege, systemic inequality, implicit bias and a white supremacy power structure in need of immediate dismantling (as silly shows on HBO, like the upcoming Lovecraft Country, presuppose), the name Rosalie Cook would be on the lips of every white American.

Her story would be told by every newspaper in the country, and she’d be the no. 1 story on every cable news network, as well as being featured on the national nightly newscast on ABC/CBS/NBC.

If white privilege existed, Hollywood studios would be bidding on buying her life story and rushing a movie to be made about her for release in quarter four 2020.

For a nation fueled on white privilege would never, ever stop telling the story of what happened Rosalie Cook (“the perfect grandma”) on a random Saturday afternoon in Houston. [80-Year-Old “Perfect Grandma” Stabbed To Death By Career Criminal Who Was Out On Bond: Police, Breaking 911, May 18, 2020]:

HOUSTON, Texas — An elderly woman was fatally stabbed in a Walgreens parking lot Saturday by a career criminal who was out on bond.

80-year-old Rosalie Cook, who was widowed and lived on her own independently, had just picked up a prescription when the monster approached her in the parking lot and stabbed her in the chest.

“What makes me angry is this suspect stabbed an 80-year-old woman then goes down, rifles through her stuff and tries to steal her car,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said.

Randy Lewis, 38, was reportedly menacing people and begging for money at a nearby grocery store before the crime.

A responding officer arrived shortly after the stabbing and ordered Lewis out of Cook’s car. When Lewis attempted to rush the officer with the knife, he was shot twice, fatally.

“This is tragic, but the most tragedy here is that a woman has died from a guy who attacked her for no other reason other than to steal from her and carjack her,” Acevedo said.

KTRK reported: [Lewis’ bail] was waived back on April 30 for a charge of assaulting a public servant from two years ago. A charging document stated he struck someone who was transferring him to the county jail.

Court records indicate he was found temporarily incompetent after a mental exam in October 2019 and was committed to a mental facility. In March, his stay was extended by a judge for 60 days after a request from the head of the facility. He was subsequently released to Royal Personal Care Home on May 1.

Lewis had been arrested more than 67 times in his life.

But America is not a nation dominated by white privilege, systemic inequality, implicit bias, nor does it have a white supremacy power structure in need of immediate dismantling, because the name Rosalie Cook will be on the lips of virtually no white people across the country.

Her story will be told by few people, save those who dare engage in the mortal sin of pattern recognition.

Her name is Rosalie Cook. That few people will ever read her story is a reminder of the real privilege existing in America. Or, as it should be called, Black-Run America (BRA).

Their Lives Matter Too.

BOGALUSA, La. (WVUE) -13 people were shot in Bogalusa Saturday night while attending a memorial service for a murder victim, according to the Bogalusa Police Department.

Police say around 9 p.m., the Bogalusa Police Department began receiving calls that gunshots were heard in the area of Martin Luther King Drive near East 4th Street.

The chief investigator on the case says more than 150 people were gathered in a vacant lot when someone in a car drove by and fired, causing a chaotic scene, according to the Associated Press.

Those callers informed police that several subjects had been shot.

Upon arrival, officers observed an extremely large crowd of people gathered in the area for what was believed to be a memorial service for Dominique James who was recently found murdered.

James’ mother, Renee James, posted a video to her Facebook page of the memorial service hours before the shooting took place.

Officers located several victims with gunshot wounds and attempted to secure the scene.

In 2019, the National Football League (NFL) boasted a roster that was only 29.9 percent white. The league is roughly 69 percent black.

No one cares about the paucity of white players in the NFL, especially with zero white corner backs, only a handful of white running backs, and a dwindling amount of white wide receivers. But, the real crisis is the lack of black head coaches and black general managers. How to fix this problem in a league where 7 of 10 players is non-white?

How about boosting draft pick position if you hire blacks to be a coach or a general manager? [Owners to vote on resolution to incentivize minority HC, GM hires, NFL.com, May 15, 2020]:

During his state of the league address three months ago at Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged a need to increase the opportunities for minorities to become head coaches and general managers.

“Clearly we are not where we want to be on this level,” he said. “It’s clear we need to change. We have already begun discussing those changes, what stages we can take next to determine better outcomes.”

The call to action grew even louder after only one of the five coaching vacancies during the offseason was filled by a person of color, continuing a trend in which just three of the past 20 openings have gone to a minority. Now in perhaps its most aggressive and controversial attempt to address the issue, the league will present a pair of resolutions this coming Tuesday during the owners’ virtual meeting that it hopes will level the playing field.

The first would remove the longstanding anti-tampering barrier that permits clubs to block assistant coaches from interviewing for coordinator positions with other clubs, even though having coordinator experience is typically the final and most significant step in becoming a head coach. The other would incentivize the hiring of minorities as head coaches or primary football executives by rewarding teams with improved draft slots, multiple sources told NFL.com.

The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the topic. The league declined to comment Friday on this specific agenda for Tuesday’s meeting. But if the resolutions were to be voted in under the League Policy on Equal Employment and Workplace Diversity, they would work as follows:

  • If a team hires a minority head coach, that team, in the draft preceding the coach’s second season, would move up six spots from where it is slotted to pick in the third round. A team would jump 10 spots under the same scenario for hiring a person of color as its primary football executive, a position more commonly known as general manager.
  • If a team were to fill both positions with diverse candidates in the same year, that club could jump 16 spots — six for the coach, 10 for the GM — and potentially move from the top of the third round to the middle of the second round. Another incentive: a team’s fourth-round pick would climb five spots in the draft preceding the coach’s or GM’s third year if he is still with the team. That is considered significant because Steve Wilks and Vance Joseph, two of the four African-American head coaches hired since 2017, were fired after one and two seasons, respectively.
  • If passed, the changes would be a radical departure from current protocol. League officials have been trying for years to implement programs and procedures that would increase advancement opportunities for minorities, from adopting the Rooney Rule in 2003 to increasing fellowship positions to bringing in pro and college coaches for networking and empowerment summits to working with clubs to allocate more entry-level positions to diverse candidates. In addition to the coaching hires, only two of the 32 GM positions currently belong to someone of color, alarming statistics considering 70 percent of head coach hires during the past three years came from two positions: quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator.

    The belief internally is the numbers can be reversed by removing some of the barriers that have hindered minority mobility, such as teams blocking assistants from interviewing for coordinator positions elsewhere. Many owners view coordinator experience as essential for first-time head coaches, but currently Eric Bieniemy in Kansas City and Byron Leftwich in Tampa Bay are the only minority coordinators on offense.

    Under the proposed resolution, clubs would be prohibited from the end of the regular season to March 1 from denying an assistant coach the opportunity to interview with a new team for a “bona fide” coordinator position on offense, defense or special teams. Any dispute about the legitimacy of the position would be heard by the commissioner, and his determination would be “final, binding and not subject to further review.”

    If a minority assistant left to become a coordinator elsewhere, his former club would receive a fifth-round compensatory pick. And if a person of color leaves to become a head coach or general manager, his previous team would receive a third-round compensatory pick.

    One final provision: Any team that hires a person of color as its quarterbacks coach would receive a compensatory pick at the end of the fourth round if it retains that employee beyond one season. The provision is an attempt to get a more diverse pool of coaches working with quarterbacks, since the trend of late is to hire head coaches with offensive experience — 24 of the past 33 hires have been from the offensive side of the ball — and it’s considered even more beneficial to have worked with quarterbacks. Currently there are only two African-American QB coaches in Pep Hamilton of the Chargers and Marcus Brady of the Colts.

    The league office is also looking at further enhancing the Rooney Rule by doubling the number of minority candidates a team must interview for head-coaching vacancies. It also is expected to apply the rule to coordinator positions for the first time. Steelers owner Art Rooney II hinted at changes in January during an interview with the NFL Network’s Steve Wyche.

     

Why not just make it against the league rules of the NFL to hire or promote white head coaches or white general managers? Isn’t that the course corporate America is on? Shouldn’t the NFL just go ahead and be the ultimate trendsetter in ensuring true diversity is implemented? After all, the NFL gets an A+ rating from THE INSTITUTE FOR DIVERSITY AND ETHICS IN SPORT for the league being only 29 percent white.

Reminder: the league is celebrated for being less than a third white when it comes to the players on the field.

Diversity initiatives mean, literally, fewer white people and denying white individual collective opportunity.

The NFL is just trying to show the private and public sector in America how to implement diversity goals: reward replacing (and denying) white people in employment!

“And that was the soft spot which destroyed what was in many ways an admirable culture. The junior hoodlums who roamed their streets were symptoms of a greater sickness; their citizens (all of them counted as such) glorified their mythology of ‘rights’ … and lost track of their duties.

Step one: release black criminal, who was in jail for armed robbery, early because of concerns over the Coronavirus.

Step two: arrest this same black criminal for the murder of a 21-year-old white woman in Denver, Colorado less than a month after he was released from jail because of concerns surrounding the Coronavirus.

Ladies and gentlemen, we call this Anarcho-Tyranny. [Parolee Released Early Due To Coronavirus Accused Of Murdering Woman In Denver, CBS Denver, May 15, 2020]:

A parolee who was recently released from prison due to coronavirus concerns is now accused of murdering a 21-year-old woman in Denver. Cornelius Haney is accused of murdering Heather Perry less than a month after his release.

Perry’s body was discovered in an alleyway in east Denver on May 9. Police used surveillance video to track Haney back to the crime scene.

Haney was released early from his seven year sentence after pleading guilty to armed robbery in Arapahoe County in June of 2016. Though qualified for parole, Haney’s mandatory release date wasn’t scheduled until August of 2020.

In a statement issued to CBS4’s Dillon Thomas, the Department of Corrections said:

“Mr. Haney has been eligible for parole since 2017. His case was reviewed by the Parole Board, and he was approved for release. He was released on 4-15-2020. Mr. Haney had a mandatory release date of 8-22-2020 and would have been required to be released at that time regardless of the Parole Board decision.

“Mr. Haney was released due to special needs parole criteria. When looking at special needs parole criteria, the Department of Corrections’ medical staff reviews offenders for risk factors related to COVID as documented by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The clinical team reviews the inmate’s medical records to individually confirm the existence of conditions and their severity. The Department also reviews information related to their crime of incarceration and behavior inside the facility. Once the medical and parole team has made a recommendation, the packet is forwarded to the Parole Board for review. The Parole Board reviews the application packet and renders a decision.”

Gov. Jared Polis acknowledged Friday that Haney was released under an executive order he issued, but said the parole board could not have held Haney much longer.

“He would have had mandatory parole granted in August of this year,” Polis stated. “He has been up for parole since 2017.”

Polis said the parole board has a tough job.

“In making those decisions, they are taking into account the safety of prison guards and others, but no prisoner who is a danger to society should be released early in any situation,” Polis stated. “And of course, nobody on that parole board thought that this person was going to do what they allegedly did, but they couldn’t have held them much longer under the law.”

“They’re doing their best to make the best informed decisions they can to keep Coloradans safe, as they decide within the legal parameters,” Polis stated. “Nobody should be released simply because of COVID-19, of course.”

Not much is known about Heather Perry, save she was a 21-year-old white female living in Denver.

“Was” being the operative word in the sentence.

We might never learn much more about Ms. Perry, for the corporate media has no interest in pursuing any story in great detail when the racial angle of a black-on-white crime is the primary cause for the who-what-when-where-why-how.

When such a murder transpires, it immediately sets in motion a series of events requiring the white victim’s picture to rarely accompany any story in local network affiliate (ABC/CBS/NBC/FOX) reporting, and absolutely no racial descriptions in the prose.

But in this case, revert back to the interesting revelations from above:

Step one: release black criminal, who was in jail for armed robbery, early because of concerns over the Coronavirus.

Step two: arrest this same black criminal for the murder of a 21-year-old white woman in Denver, Colorado less than a month after he was released from jail because of concerns surrounding the Coronavirus.

Her name is Heather Perry. A sane society would have protected her from a criminal like Cornelius Haney. The leaders of our society decided to release him from jail because of the fear of the Coronavirus impacting those who had forfeited their right to freedom because they broke the law was greater than protecting the law-abiding citizens of Colorado.

Their Lives Matter Too.

[Gun Violence Surges As Crime Otherwise Drops Amid Coronavirus, WUVM.com, May 13, 2020]:

Emergency room visits have been cut in half during the coronavirus pandemic. But there’s still a reason for some people to get medical help other than the virus.

More people have been shot so far this year than in years previous, and Milwaukee is no exception. During the same period, other crimes have decreased, according to an analysis of Gun Violence Archive data by The Trace, a nonprofit newsroom that focuses on gun issues.

The Trace was unable to run a full analysis of Milwaukee’s data since records of gun violence in the area are difficult to obtain in real-time. But other sources, including observations from violence prevention groups, have suggested that Milwaukee’s situation compares to Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago, and other cities where the rise of COVID-19 has correlated with a severe spike in gun violence.

Unlike in Philadelphia, where funding for violence prevention has waned, groups like 414Life in Milwaukee remain fully funded. But safer-at-home orders have meant that in-person interventions have become more difficult to stage.

“When it’s a police officer and an intervention worker from the same background and the same city sitting in the same room, and they’re both telling you, ‘We care about you. We want you to do well, so please stay out of this and drop this conflict’ … that has a powerful effect,” said Champe Barton, one of the authors of The Trace report.

“When you have to reach out by Facebook, or you have to try and call a family member to call the person … the work just becomes less effective.”

It’s difficult to tell for certain why gun violence has spiked, as there is little research into gun violence prevention. It’s also difficult to study prevention strategies in a scientific manner since that would require a control group that would be left to fend for itself — an ethical violation. Champe says the coronavirus pandemic has provided an unintended case study into some of the factors that clearly have an effect on gun violence.

Some psychologists have cited boredom as a catalyst for violence. With most work, school, and recreation currently closed, there are fewer activities to keep people distracted from taking up a gun.

“Those sorts of interruptions to someone’s daily life really do hurt their chances of being away from violence, because we at least know that while you’re at work, while you’re at school, it’s difficult to also be shooting a gun,” said Barton.

Despite the rise in gun violence, Barton said he’s wary of some politicians’ claims that the “cure is worse than the disease” — the belief that virus prevention measures might lead to more death than the virus itself. It’s possible that’s because the same majority-black communities that have seen rises in gun violence are also those that have seen the most fatalities from COVID-19.

“In my reporting, I have not heard anyone who is anxious to reopen as a result of the coronavirus,” said Barton. “The loss of life as a result of the coronavirus outstrips anything from people staying at home and getting involved with violence as a result … It would be unfair to look at that as a binary when there are ways that cities can intervene.”

Systemic racism this, implicit bias that…

Question: everyone in America is under quarantine/lockdown/stay-at-home orders: why are individual black people bored at such rates they are collectively engaging in higher rates of gun violence than normal?

Why aren’t whites? Why aren’t Hispanics? Why aren’t Asians?

To ask the question, is to inadvertently answer it.

Shot. [Michigan Militia Puts Armed Protest in the Spotlight: Gun-carrying protesters have been a common sight at some demonstrations calling for coronavirus-related restrictions to be lifted., US News, May 2, 2020]:

Gun-carrying protesters have been a common sight at some demonstrations calling for coronavirus-related restrictions to be lifted. But an armed militia’s involvement in an angry protest in the Michigan statehouse Thursday marked an escalation that drew condemnation and shone a spotlight on the practice of bringing weapons to protest.

The “American Patriot Rally” started on the statehouse steps, where members of the Michigan Liberty Militia stood guard with weapons and tactical gear, their faces partially covered. They later moved inside the Capitol along with several hundred protesters, who demanded to be let onto the House floor, which is prohibited. Some protesters with guns — which are allowed in the statehouse — went to the Senate gallery, where a senator said some armed men shouted at her, and some senators wore bulletproof vests.

For some observers, the images of armed men in tactical gear at a state Capitol were an unsettling symbol of rising tensions in a nation grappling with crisis. Others saw evidence of racial bias in the way the protesters were treated by police.

In Wisconsin, about a dozen men, several wearing camouflage, carried what appeared to be assault rifles and other long guns and stood around a makeshift guillotine at a protest attended by about 1,500 people. In Arizona, a group of men armed with rifles were among hundreds of protesters who demonstrated at the Capitol last month demanding Republican Gov. Doug Ducey lift his stay-home order. Many in the crowd also carried holstered pistols.

Gun groups have been involved in organizing several of these protests — which drew activists from a range of conservative causes. Gun rights advocates believe the restrictions on some businesses and closure of government offices are a threat to their right to own a gun, said Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, a group that bills itself as the “no compromise” gun lobby.

Hammond said he routinely gets messages and emails from people around the country, complaining that authorities are making it impossible to exercise their Second Amendment rights. In some cases, that has meant orders closing gun shops or gun ranges or offices shutting down that process permits.

But Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, a gun-control group, considers these protests organized by the ultra-right and not necessarily reflective of most gun owners.

While it’s legal to openly carry firearms inside some state capitols, Watts called it “dangerous to normalize this. Armed intimidation has no place in our political debate.” She said those carrying guns at protests are almost always white men, and are “a vocal minority of the country” that opposes the stay-at-home orders.

An overwhelming majority of Americans support stay-at-home orders and other efforts to slow the spread of the virus, according to a recent survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The visual of heavily armed protesters, mostly white men, occupying a government building to a measured response by law enforcement is a particularly jarring one for many African Americans.

It draws a stark contrast to the images that emerged from Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, when crowds of unarmed, mostly black men, women and children took to the streets in protest after a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown. Police shot tear gas to disperse the crowds, further inflaming the tensions between predominantly black community and law enforcement. It worsened when members of an armed militia group called the Oath Keepers arrived, some of them armed and sitting on rooftops. Jon Belmar, who was then St. Louis County’s police chief, said at the time that the presence of the group, whose members wore camouflage, bulletproof vests and openly carried rifles and pistols, was “unnecessary and inflammatory.”

“Systemically, blackness is treated like a more dangerous weapon than a white man’s gun ever will, while whiteness is the greatest shield of safety,” said Brittany Packnett, a prominent national activist who protested in Ferguson.

The Michigan demonstrators, she added, “are what happens when people of racial privilege confuse oppression with inconvenience. No one is treading on their rights. We’re all just trying to live.”

Chaser. [Legally Armed Black Citizens Patrol White Neighborhood Where Ahmaud Arbery Was Killed: The show of force came as there have been calls for more Black people to arm themselves., NewsOne.com, May 12, 2020]:

The protests in Georgia sparked by the killing of Ahmaud Arbery bore a number of similarities to the others we’ve seen following what seems like a neverending string of controversial shootings of unarmed Black men by white people. But in the rural town of Brunswick — where father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael racially profiled Arbery before getting their guns, hopping in a truck, hunting him down and killing him in the middle of a road in broad daylight — there is one key difference the separates the protests there from others: demonstrators were armed.

And not only were they armed, but they were also legally armed Black citizens who came out to protest in the town’s Satilla Shores neighborhood where the McMicheals are accused of murdering Arbery in February. It’s a neighborhood that is very white and conservative, as seen in images from the protests that show Trump-Pence 2020 signs on homes’ lawns.

Likely sensing that the neighborhood’s residents didn’t want the protesters there — especially the armed ones — one of the Black men who were carrying machine guns seemed to almost dare someone to say something about them being there.

“You think they would have shot me if I was running through they goddamn neighborhood?” the man who, like the other armed protesters, was wearing a camouflage bulletproof vest and a mask to conceal most of his face, asked rhetorically. “Well I’mma give them an opportunity,” he added while walking toward the protest.

One local news outlet identified the men as being members of the Black Panther Party.

Georgia gun laws allow for legally licensed individuals to openly bear arms in public even if there is no apparent cause for self-defense.

The armed citizens legally protesting Arbery’s death came as there have been calls for more Black people to arm themselves because of continued consequences from the coronavirus pandemic, which has disproportionately affected Black people well beyond the health spectrum. As Nylah Burton, a Black woman, wrote for ESSENCE, the combination of the way law enforcement tried to sweep Arbery’s death under the rug; the recent series of police brutality over nonviolent social distancing violations; and the armed militias storming statehouses across the country have left her reluctantly considering getting a gun.

Moral of these two stories? White men carrying guns, bad. Immediate cause for the corporate media across the United States to promote the idea of white people planning an insurrection and just how much fear non-whites face on a daily basis.

Black men carrying guns, good. Not only is this a positive, but it is of absolute no concern for black men to be armed with semi-automatic weapons and patrolling a white neighborhood (in a racially/ethnic intimidating manner).

Could you imagine a white jogger murdered in a gentrifying neighborhood in Atlanta (still majority black), and then a bunch of armed white people showing up to patrol the black community? It would be an international incident immediately, with the Atlanta Police Department, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, GBI, and probably the Georgia National Guard immediately called in to deal with this terror threat.

For members of the Black Panthers to do this in Brunswick, Georgia is a story barely worth reporting in the local press.

Welcome to 2020 America, where white privilege means having Black Panthers open carry semi-automatic weapons in your neighborhood, engaging in racial/ethnic intimidation no member of the corporate media cares to document. That’s real privilege, folks.

Minneapolis, Minnesota, was almost entirely white until 1980. However, in the last few decades, large numbers of non-whites came to the city, especially immigrants from Somalia. Now, the idyllic city created by settlers and pioneers is a center for black crime and Islamic terrorist recruitment.

The city’s story began when the United States Army built Fort Snelling after the War of 1812 to guard American settlers. The most famous non-white inhabitant of Fort Snelling was Dred Scott, whose efforts to escape slavery led to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dred Scott v. Sandford. Chief Justice Roger Taney wrote that blacks were not citizens and “are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the world ‘citizens’ in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States.”

After more settlers came, several local settlements combined. Adolf Hoeffler, a German who visited the area in 1852, predicted it would eventually become “an extensive manufacturing town, and depot of all the future productions of the extreme Upper Mississippi.” Minneapolis was ideally placed for milling flour, not just manufacturing. Its name means “water city.” From 1870 to 1890, Minneapolis grew from 13,000 people to almost 165,000. Almost everyone was white.

Many city leaders wanted to keep it that way. “Restrictive covenants” to keep neighborhoods white were used from 1910 until 1950. The fascist Silver Legion or “Silver Shirts” had a presence in the city in the 1930s. Blacks were simply not a significant presence in the city for most of its history, so ethnic tension was between Jews and gentiles, not blacks and whites. Some help-wanted ads even said, “Gentile preferred.” Minneapolis was a critical battleground for the Progressive movement. The Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party didn’t unite with the Democrats until 1944, and the quasi-socialist MFLP was able to elect candidates such as Minneapolis mayor Thomas Latimer. Class and ideology — not race — dominated city politics.

Non-whites started coming to the city in large numbers in the 1970s and 1980s. By 1990, the city was more than 20 percent non-white. Some migrants may have been tempted by Minnesota’s generous welfare programs. However, there was also a deliberate effort by churches and refugee settlement organizations to bring them. Corporations also wanted cheap labor, such as the meat packers who hired Somalis. [The Great Replacement: Minneapolis, AmRen.com, Gregory Hood and Paul Kersey, May 11, 2020]

The Great Replacement is no myth. It’s happened in Minneapolis, where the white population dropped from 99% in 1910 to 60% white today. You could even say it’s state policy to change the racial demographics of the city via refugee resettlement (a nicer word for white displacement).

Odds are, it’s coming to a city near you.

PK NOTE: Pick up a copy of The Way Life Should Be?: The Globalists’ Demographic War on America with Maine as a Microcosm

If one story illustrated the concept of Black-Run America (BRA) perfectly, it would be this sob story from Maine.

No, blacks don’t run America, but America is run for the benefit of blacks. Wherever one black individual is failing, all blacks are failing. [Newly released data suggest ‘alarming’ racial disparity among Maine’s COVID-19 cases: African Americans account for 1.7% of the state’s population but 3.7% of the state’s infections. The state CDC director says, ‘These disparities are concerning.’, Press Herald, May 1, 2020]:

New data show that African Americans in Maine are testing positive for COVID-19 at a disproportionally high rate.

Forty-one African Americans have tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. While that number may seem small compared to the 1,095 statewide cases, it suggests a disparity because African Americans account for only 1.7 percent of the state’s population, but 3.7 percent of its infections.

Dr. Nirav Shah, director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said the figures show a “deeply concerning” racial disparity that has been seen elsewhere in the United States. One study found that African Americans were twice as likely to die of COVID-19 in New York City. And the New York Times reported that blacks accounted for 40 percent of the deaths in Michigan despite making up only 14 percent of the population.

“These disparities are concerning,” Shah said. “They were alarming to us.”

Maine, which released the racial and ethnic breakdowns of COVID-19 cases for the first time Wednesday, is the last state in New England to do so. The information was reported the same day the state announced an outbreak at Tyson Foods’ meat processing plant in Portland, which employs many immigrant workers.

As of Thursday, 10 Tyson workers had tested positive for COVID-19, and arrangements were being made to test all 400 workers, Shah said.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maine called on the state to release the data April 16. Alison Beyea, the ACLU’s executive director, applauded its release, calling it the first step to ensuring Mainers of color are protected during the pandemic.

“We are not surprised to see that Black and brown people in Maine are being harmed at higher rates than white people,” Beyea said in a written statement. “This is consistent with what we are seeing around the country and reflects the systemic inequities that exist here and everywhere. The most important thing the Maine government can do now is ensure equitable access to testing, treatment and resources for these most vulnerable communities.”

The newly released data show that white people in Maine account for 731 cases, or 66.8 percent of the state’s caseload. However, whites make up 94.6 percent of the state’s population, according to 2019 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. But 250 people, or a quarter of those with COVID-19, did not provide their race to state epidemiologists, so the percentage of positive cases among whites is likely much higher.

Patients are not required to provide that information to state epidemiologists during their investigation, according to a Maine CDC spokesperson.

New Hampshire is seeing even more of a disparity, with African Americans accounting for 5.6 percent of its case load but only 1.4 percent of the population. In Vermont, however, the case rate among African Americans is similar to the population, at 1.9 percent of cases and 1.4 percent of the population.

Shah speculated that African Americans and other minorities in Maine and nationally are contracting COVID-19 at higher rates because they often work in public-facing occupations and have less access to health care coverage.

Shah said he’s been holding regular video calls with representatives of Maine’s immigrant community to identify roadblocks to care and to share information about how immigrants can access health care if they’re sick, get tested and find follow-up care.

Read the story again. Take your time. Read it thoroughly and carefully.

Black immigrants flocking to Portland, Maine (who have overwhelmed the welfare services) are now barely overrepresented among those infected with the Coronavirus in the state, and this is somehow cause for a crisis and the state CDC director to label the dispraise as “concerning.”[Portland Expo to serve as emergency shelter as influx of asylum seekers creates ‘a very critical situation’: Portland receives 86 asylum seekers from the southern border in 3 days, and the city manager says the city manager of San Antonio, Texas, told him to expect as many as 150 more to arrive soon., Press Herald, July 11, 2019]:

The Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram reported in December about the increasing numbers of families from sub-Saharan Africa making the long and dangerous journey through Central America and Mexico to the southern U.S. border, where they ask for asylum. Many of the migrants ask to be sent to Portland, Maine, because of the support the city provides and because of the immigrant community that has taken root here.

“We heard that Maine was a place where a lot of people have been able to get asylum,” a man named Matare told the Press Herald after arriving in Portland with his wife and four children.

The family left Angola to escape violence and completed an epic two-month, 13,100-mile journey through South and Central America, avoiding drug cartels, militias and human traffickers, walking through jungles and over mountains to get to Texas. Matare spoke on the condition that his full name wouldn’t be published because of fears for family members in Angola.

The current influx of arrivals comes a week after a CBS affiliate in San Antonio reported last week that officials were struggling to handle an influx of about 350 asylum seekers from Angola and the Congo. The station quoted an assistant city manager as saying they hoped to be able to send many of the asylum seekers to Portland.

“The plan was 350 of them would travel from San Antonio to Portland. When we reached out to Portland, Maine, they said, ‘Please don’t send us any more. We’re already stretched way beyond our capacity,” interim Assistant City Manager Colleen Bridger told KENS 5.

City Hall Communications Director Jessica Grondin pushed back on the assertion that any city official discouraged San Antonio from sending people to Portland. Jennings said in his email to councilors that the city manager in San Antonio told him on Monday to expect 150 asylum seekers in the coming days.

“He said this is just the beginning as there are currently between 1,500-2,000 African migrants at the border seeking asylum with the probability of more to come,” Jennings said in his email.

Jennings said he was told by the San Antonio manager that U.S. Customs and Border Protection changed its policy on asylum seekers. As of June 4, border agents are releasing individuals to a point of destination in the U.S. without verifying a sponsor. And he said that thousands of people are “being bused to San Antonio for distribution throughout the U.S. according to the city manager.”

Meanwhile, whites in Maine – who represent the overwhelmingly amount of the Coronavirus cases in the state – are hardly worth worrying about.

Do White Lives Matter in the age of Coronavirus? Not if blacks are barely impacted at a disproportionate rate, as in Maine, where a massive influx of African migrants overwhelmed the welfare system in 2019 and now has a negligible spike in black Coronavirus cases in the state.

Rumors are running rampant a targeted murder in a Delaware cemetery was racially motivated. [BREAKING: Black Male Hunts & Assassinates Elderly White Couple In Delaware Cemetery With Scoped Rifle, Red Elephants, May 9, 2020]

We will soon find out to the extent these rumors of a racial terror attack by a black male on a white marred octogenarian couple are true or not, but the moment confirmation arrives will obviously be drowned by out by the cacophony coming from Brunswick, Georgia.

Nevertheless, the details are beginning to surface and this married octogenarian couple visiting their son’s gravestone at a veteran’s cemetery murdered by a black male utilizing a sniper rifle don’t exactly fit the corporate media narrative of innocent black bodies being mercilessly hunted down by rapid white supremacists. [Married couple, 85 and 86, shot dead at Delaware veterans cemetery, New York Post, May 10, 2020]:

A married Maryland couple in their 80s were killed at a Delaware cemetery by a gunman who authorities later found dead, according to reports.

Sheldon C. Francis, 29, gunned down an 85-year-old woman and her 86-year-old husband Friday morning on the grounds of the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Bear, NBC Philadelphia reported.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene while her husband died Saturday at an area hospital, police said. The couple’s identities haven’t been released.

Police said officers chased Francis around noon into a wooded area, where he exchanged gunfire with them.

He was found dead from a gunshot wound around 4 p.m. in the Brennen Estates neighborhood, which borders the veterans’ cemetery, authorities said.

It’s unclear whether Francis shot himself or was struck by police in the shootout, police said.

The state police homicide unit is investigating the case, the outlet reported.

The extent to which interracial crime in America is overwhelmingly black-on-white is an inconvenient truth to those in power, always determined to inflate every white-on-black incident as an immediate opportunity to castigate all white people for the individual act of criminality.

Heather Mac Donald is one of the bravest public figures in America. She noted the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization shows black on white violent crime is increasing, writing, “Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent.”[A Platform of Urban Decline: Democratic presidential candidates believe America is racist, yet they ignore the evidence on crime and ensure that racial disparities persist., City Journal, September 23, 2019]:

Just this month, the Bureau of Justice Statistics released its 2018 survey of criminal victimization. According to the study, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent. That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, blacks committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15 percent. From 2015 to 2018, the total number of white victims and the incidence of white victimization have grown as well.

Blacks are also overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes—by 50 percent—according to the most recent Justice Department data from 2017; whites are underrepresented by 24 percent. This is particularly true for anti-gay and anti-Semitic hate crimes.

There’s not one public figure, outside of the courageous Ms. Mac Donald, who is willing to note the black-on-white violent crime problem in America. Every other public figure in America works to accentuate the relatively few white-on-black assaults as evidence of the rising tide of white racial violence in the USA.

We will soon find out the names of the white octogenarian married couple who were murdered by a black male (hunted, actually) as they tried to visit their son’s grave, but the story will hardly be promoted with the same intensity of the Brunswick incident concerning a white father, his white son, and Ahmaud Arbery.

But will remember their names. We will tell their story.

And we will ask: was Sheldon C. Francis motivated to hunt down and murder two white octogenarians because of the manner in which the corporate media promoted the Ahmaud Arbery false narrative of white racists hunting down in an innocent black body in a former Confederate state?

PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too. It’s a book you must pick up. Names you’ve never encountered, stories you’ve never read about, all for one, unmentionable reason: black on white murder. We were never supposed to notice what’s happening. We were never supposed to catalogue the names and tell their stories. But we did. But we have. Their Lives Matter Too.

There’s been very few days in the past nine years where I didn’t think of Brittney Watts and what happened to her in Atlanta, Georgia. She was murdered for being white. Two other white females on the fateful day she was murdered, but they survived their bullet wounds.

But it’s Brittney Watts who symbolizes so much, because she was the only one of three white females who were hunted down by a black male and shot for their “white privilege,” to die from injuries suffered in this racial terrorist attack.

And that’s what it was: a black racial terror attack on three white women in Atlanta. [Defendant admits fatally wounding woman in Atlanta, Associated Press, January 30, 2013]:

The man charged with shooting a 26-year-old woman to death in an Atlanta parking deck and wounding two others relived the July 2011 incident in court Wednesday, saying it was like an out-of-body experience.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/UDoQ7b ) reports that former security guard 23-year-old Nkosi Thandiwe recounted details of the shooting during the second day of his trial.

Thandiwe has pleaded not guilty to murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and weapons offenses in the shooting that left 26-year-old Brittany Watts dead, Lauren Garcia paralyzed and a third woman wounded in her leg. In court he recalled absent-mindedly drawing his weapon on Watts and shooting her before fleeing the scene in her car.

“It was almost like watching myself in action,” Thandiwe said in court, “I tell her to get out of (her) car. She screams. I fire. She drops to the ground.”

Police have not disclosed a motive, but during his testimony Thandiwe said the shooting may have stemmed from beliefs he held about white people as an anthropology major in college.

“I was trying to prove a point that Europeans had colonized the world, and as a result of that, we see a lot of evil today,” he said. “In terms of slavery, it was something that needed to be answered for. I was trying to spread the message of making white people mend.”

The night before the shooting, Thandiwe said he attended a gathering to discuss helping black people find equal footing and was upset that two white people were also there. The lingering anger caused him to bring his gun with him to work the next day, he said.

No, this black criminal in Brunswick, Georgia wasn’t “hunted.” But Brittney Watts was hunted down in Atlanta back in 2011 (as were two other white females) by a black racial terrorist.

Have you ever heard the name Nkosi Thandiwe before? He was a black racial terrorist who targeted three white women in Atlanta, Georgia in 2011, killing Brittney Watts and wounding two others.

As the ridiculous hoax in Brunswick, Georgia surrounding some black criminal/thief turned jogger collapses, the reality of what happened to Brittney Watts echoes throughout the years as a reminder of the true source of hate in Georgia and how the concept of white privilege ends.

[Midtown shooter gets life plus 65 years in prison, AJC.com, January 31, 2013]:

The man convicted of murdering a woman and wounding two others in a 2011 Midtown shooting spree was sentenced to life without parole plus 65 years in prison Thursday.

“This I do find to be by the nature of the act of on July 15, 2011, to be very random, very hate-filled, very heinous, very vile,” Fulton County Superior Court Judge Kelly A. Lee said as she handed Nkosi Thandiwe his life sentence for killing Brittney Watts, and injuring Tiffany Ferenczy and Lauren Garcia, leaving Garcia paralyzed from the waist down.

The 23-year-old Thandiwe sat stone-faced as Lee made her ruling. Victims’ families released a collective sigh, while those in court to support him dropped their heads.

Before Lee gave her sentence, Brittney Watts’ husband struggled through tears to ask the judge for the maximum sentence for Thandiwe.

“I’ve mourned Brittney for the last 568 days,” he said. “I realize the worst day of my life is in my past … But I also realize the best days of my life are, too.”

Brian Watts brushed told the judge and jury how only a month before his wife’s death, the couple moved back to Atlanta from Tampa and into his wife’s dream house with the plans of starting a family.

“He took everything from me … my soulmate, the family we were going to have,” Brian Watts said. He said he found himself looking forward “to the day that I die so that I can be with Brittney again.”

Thandiwe’s mother, Lynnae Thandiwe, pleaded with the judge for mercy.

“He’s not the ‘Midtown Shooter,’” she said. “He’s not a monster. It’s not consistent with who Nkosi is. Nothing can be gained by putting him in jail for the rest of his life.”

Thandiwe, 23, was accused of fatally shooting Watts in the neck in a Midtown parking deck as she left her office for lunch, then taking her car, apparently hitting her body as he pulled away, and firing into a crowd of women that included Garcia and Ferenczy walking along Crescent Street as he sped off.

“He told you he shot Brittney Watts, Lauren Garcia and Tiffany Ferenczy because he had adopted all these racist ideals,” Fulton County Assistant District Attorney Linda Dunikoski said to the jury, referring to Thandiwe’s testimony on Wednesday. “If race disorder was a [mental illness], then the Ku Klux Klan could murder and kill with impunity.”

Public defender Wes Bryant borrowed from the prosecutor’s opening statement to suggest that Thandiwe may have been out of his mind when he shot the women.

The jury took about 30 minutes to find him guilty of all the counts against him and the sentencing phase of the trial began immediately. He was charged with murder, felony murder – causing a death during the commission of a felony – several counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, carjacking and gun offenses.

Thandiwe’s two surviving victims then added to Brian Watts’ description the shooting spree’s impact.

“I remember feeling the bullet hit my back,” Garcia said. “I remember the moment between feeling my legs and the stark contrast that followed.”

The UGA grad said she went through months of painful rehabilitation, learning to function as a paraplegic. And she married her then-boyfriend soon after the shooting.

She now works full-time for the Midtown advertising agency she was interning with when she was shot, but says private moments of sorrow still lie deep beneath the picture of resilience so many of her loved ones and supporters celebrate.

“I am a victim of a meaningless crime who has a grim outlook on life and her very best days behind her,” Garcia said.

Ferenczy, who was shot in the leg, told the judge she was plagued by nightmares of that day.

“I wake up every night with flashbacks,” she said before lamenting how seemingly thoughtlessly Thandiwe took Watts’ life. “Her life should’ve been valued. My life should’ve been valued. Lauren’s life should’ve been valued.”

Despite descriptions of Thandiwe’s life as extraordinary and kind young man, and pleas from friends and loved ones that he be given a chance to rehabilitate, Lee sided with her reservations that he could change.

“I do have concerns that on any given day in the future he could have another relapse,” she said. “And I’m concerned about his lack of remorse.”

Brian and Brittney Watts would have had two or three children by now, had Thandiwe’s racial hatred of whites not compelled him to target three white women for execution back in 2011.

But that’s what happened in Atlanta back in July of 2011: a black man, who hated white people and white privilege, targeted three white women for execution and murdered Brittney Watts.

Again, this was his motivation for shooting three white women and killing Brittney Watts (remembering, he hunted them down): “I was trying to prove a point that Europeans had colonized the world, and as a result of that, we see a lot of evil today,” he said. “In terms of slavery, it was something that needed to be answered for. I was trying to spread the message of making white people mend.”

If you’ve never read the name Brittney Watts until today, but have been bombarded with the false narrative of Ahmaud Arbery over the past two days nonstop, then you’ll understand why you live in Black-Run America (BRA).

Her Name is Brittney Watts. Remember it. Remember her story. Know why she was hunted by a black male and murder.

Never forget the life Thandiwe took, and the children of Brian and Brittney this racial terror attack deprived the world of… Their Lives Matter Too.

PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too. It’s a book you must pick up. Names you’ve never encountered, stories you’ve never read about, all for one, unmentionable reason: black on white murder. We were never supposed to notice what’s happening. We were never supposed to catalogue the names and tell their stories. But we did. But we have. Their Lives Matter Too.

As running clubs across the nation, as well as individual joggers, take the streets to run a racially symbolic – a white guilt penance? – 2.23 miles (#IRunWithMaud) to show solidarity with the black male who died in Brunswick, Georgia, a story from just three years serves as a reminder white privilege is nothing more than a pernicious myth.

Karina Vetrano was a white woman who went out for a jog in her Queens (New York City) neighborhood. She never came home, as she was sexually assaulted and murdered by a black male. [Karina Vetrano: Where the case into the Queens jogger’s death stands now, AMNY.com, April 23, 2020]:

Chanel Lewis, the man convicted of murdering Karina Vetrano when she went for a run near her Howard Beach home on Aug. 2, 2016, was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Tuesday.

Vetrano was found strangled and sexually assaulted in a marshy area of Spring Creek Park, police said. More than six months later, on Feb. 5, 2017, police arrested Lewis, then 20 years old. He was charged with second-degree murder in connection with Vetrano’s death.

In November, a jury could not agree on a verdict and a mistrial was declared. Lewis’ retrial ended April 1 when the jury returned a guilty verdict after five hours of deliberations. His defense attorneys motioned to toss the verdict, citing claims of jury misconduct, but a judge on Monday denied the request.

Scroll down for more about Lewis and the investigation leading up to his arrest.

The suspect

Chanel Lewis confessed to committing Vetrano’s murder, according to his taped statements to police. His DNA, which he gave voluntarily to police, was matched to samples recovered from Vetrano’s neck, under her fingernails and on her cellphone, police said.

Lewis was unemployed and lived with his mother in East New York when he was arrested, police said. He doesn’t have a criminal record, but police identified three quality-of-life summonses dating back to 2013 that Lewis received around the Howard Beach crime scene.

Lewis became a possible suspect the first week of February 2017 when NYPD Lt. John Russo recalled a complaint from May 2016. In testimony, Russo said he had become suspicious when he saw Lewis wearing a hoodie and sweatpants on a hot day, looking at houses in Howard Beach. The next day, he saw Lewis pacing in a parking lot, and residents reported seeing a similarly dressed man carrying a crowbar and going in and out of backyards, he said.

Russo called the local precinct and officers stopped Lewis. They didn’t find a crowbar and did not observe any crime, but took down his name and address, officials said.

When investigators located the patrol report, they interviewed Lewis at his Essex Street home. During interviews, Lewis described a puddle near the location Vetrano’s body was found, which helped convince investigators that he was at the park the same time of her killing, a law enforcement source said.

Lewis told police the alleged attack was impulsive, sparked by problems at home.

“I never really meant to hurt her, it just happened,” he said. “I was just mad at that time. I beat her to let my emotions out.”

Police said Lewis tried to complete a sex act but apparently didn’t.

Lewis’ family has denied that he is capable of committing the murder and his defense attorneys argued that his confessions had been coerced.

His lawyers also argued that the stop on May 31, 2016, that ultimately led to Lewis’ arrest, was based on a vague description that escalated to an improper detention, according to court filings. As a result, the DNA evidence and his confession are tainted, they said.

Queens State Supreme Court Gregory Lasak rejected the argument that the stop was illegal and ruled on Feb. 26, 2018, that the evidence was admissible in the case.

No video of this murder exists, so it won’t be run 24/7 online, or on CNN, MSNBC, BET, or via Black Twitter to create an anti-white lynch demanding the concept of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law be retired for immediate, Old Testament-inspired expiation.

The name Karina Vetrano is one you’ve probably never encountered, but the name Ahmaud Arbery is being seared into your brain.

Karina Vetrano was a white female murdered by a black as she went for a jog; we are supposed to believe Ahmaud Arbery was going for jog, though he was wearing cargo shorts (again, John Cena is the only athlete to work out – or wrestle – in cargo shorts) and boots.

One final note on how Karina Vetrano fought for her life to the last breath:

Police said Vetrano was strangled to death and possibly sexually assaulted. She was face down with her teeth broken, scrapes on her legs and her sports bra and shorts pulled down, sources said.

Police sources also said one of her hands was clutching grass, indicating she may have been dragged. Police said she was found 15 feet off the path.

“This woman put up a ferocious fight right to the end,” Boyce said. [Karina Vetrano “put up a ferocious fight” during her murder, NYPD says, CBS News, August 5, 2016]

No running clubs across the nation, or even individual joggers, took to streets to run in the memory of Karina Vetrano, for her murder was just another black-on-white killing, the likes of which polite white people aren’t supposed to publicly acknowledge as ever occurring.

White people hoping to maintain their status in Black-Run America (BRA) must never, ever notice racial patterns in crime or give any hint to other whites they are aware of Karina Vetrano’s story.

The next time you go for a jog, do it in the memory of Karina.

Because if you don’t, no one else will. They’ll be too busy prattling on about Ahmaud Arbery.

Social policy in America should be based on the documented facts surrounding what happened to Karina Vetrano, not the highly suspect story being manufactured around the purportedly angelic (hunted down by stereotypical white southern rednecks for sport) Ahmaud Arbery.

Her name is Karina Vetrano.

Their Lives Matter Too.
