Who Really Has More To Fear? A Black Guy Walking Through A White Neighborhood Or A White Guy Walking Through A Black Neighborhood?
Only in America can you have a Hispanic guy get assaulted by a black guy, shoot him, and then have black guys assaulting random white people to get “revenge” for the Hispanic guy not being lynched without a trial. Well, I shouldn’t say only in America, because that sort of backwards behavior happens in other less civilized parts of the world fairly regularly. It shouldn’t be happening here though and the attitude of the left-wingers who hyped the story like it was sixties church burning and got pretty much every detail wrong in the beginning, always in a way that helped inflame the story, is disgusting.
Here’s Jim Treacher on the latest story of a white man assaulted by a gang of trash for “Trayvon,”
Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he’s in critical condition.
According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.
Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.
Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. “It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.” Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.”
Police will only say “multiple people” are involved.
What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.” Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Samford, Florida.
…Well done, Spike Lee. Nice job, NBC. Keep up the good work, ABC. And to everyone else who’s been using a shooting in Florida to foment hate and divide people by the color of their skin, kudos. Don’t let this attack, and similar attacks across America, bother you. If you had a conscience, we never would’ve heard of you in the first place.
What’s the liberal reaction to this? It’s basically, “How dare conservatives complain that white people are being beaten by racist mobs of black thugs!”

There is no double standard, at least not in the way that the right likes to believe. White on black crime is not treated more seriously than black on white crime. In fact, like all crime, it seems to be the other way around. No matter the crime, black people are arrested more often than white people, they are convicted more often than white people, they are left out of juries more often than white people and they receive longer sentences. Despite the facts, you can bet that the right is going to keep looking for ways to make it sound like they are the victims.
Now Taylor Marsh.
It’s about fury.
It’s about the righteous injustice African Americans have had to contend with for over a century. Mobile, Alabama, where Matthew Owens was beaten to within an inch of his life, has a deep history of racial bigotry and violence. That a mob in Mobile could relate to the gunning down of Trayvon Martin through violence shouldn’t shock America.
“Driving while black” is part of the “trying to hail a taxi in New York while being black,” which is part of “walking while black,” all of which can lead to arrest, walking home, or getting killed, especially if you’re wearing a hoodie.
Last but not least, here’s the Washington Monthly.
Martin’s race (and for that matter, his age) entered the story mainly because African-Americans have a great deal more to fear from gun-toting vigilantes in gated communities, and from police and prosecutors quick to look the other way when a black kid is in the wrong place at the wrong time, than anyone else.
Can we be honest for just a few moments?
First off, black people are arrested and convicted of criminal activity much more than other races, because percentage wise, they commit a lot more crime. I wish that wasn’t true, but it is. Additionally, most of the time when they commit crimes, they’re committing those crimes in black neighborhoods, against other black Americans. So, when some black gangbanger goes to jail for 20 years, the people it benefits most are usually law abiding black Americans who don’t have to live in fear of that violent scumbag raping their daughter or shooting their son.
Also, “walking while black” is a joke. A black man is considerably more likely to be killed by another black man than a white man. For every black man who is killed by a white man under any circumstances, there are literally more than 9 black men killed by other black men. Additionally, the reason a taxi driver, whatever his color is, is less likely to pick up a black man is because he’s rational. Yes, he knows most black Americans, like most white Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans, aren’t criminals. However, percentage wise, black guys are much more likely to be dangerous than people of other races. That might not be fair to all the decent black Americans who aren’t criminals, but it isn’t racism, it’s just a vulnerable human being playing the percentages because he doesn’t want to get shot in the back of the head for $50.
Last but not least, give me a break on this “gun-toting vigilantes in gated communities” stuff. How many thousand black men do you think are killed by other black men for every black man who’s killed by a “gun-toting vigilante” in a gated community? 10,000? 20,000? Here’s a question: Whom do you think is safer? A black man walking through a mostly white community or a white man walking through a mostly black community? Every single person reading this article knows the answer to that question, even if he doesn’t want to admit the truth, which is that white Americans and, for that matter, black Americans have a lot more to fear walking through black neighborhoods than vice-versa.
At the end of the day, George Zimmerman is no “hero.” The prosecutors may even have information that hasn’t been released to the public yet that indicates he broke the law as opposed to having his nose broken, having his head bounced off the pavement, and then shooting Trayvon Martin because he was legitimately afraid for his life. It is, however, despicable that Zimmerman has been found guilty in the mainstream media because Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, and Barack Obama think they can profit politically from condemning him and because the mainstream media has pushed an assortment of untruths or at least unproven “facts” about him to try to convince people he’s guilty (He’s white, he used a racial slur, he followed Martin after the police told him not to, Martin was a little kid, he outweighed Martin by 70 pounds, Martin was screaming for help, etc., etc., etc.). How about we don’t make Zimmerman into a hero or Martin into a martyr and just wait until the trial as opposed to lynching the Hispanic guy because he happens to be the wrong color in an election year?
