There has been a racist attack. Quick someone call Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Wait, I don’t think they will be riding in on this one.
From Fox Toledo:
Saturday afternoon around 4:45 p.m., 78-year-old Dallas Watts was walking home from the gas station at the corner of Starr and White in East Toledo.
He was confronted by six juveniles between the ages of 11 to 17, both white and black, and for the next three or four minutes was nearly beaten to death because of, as he says, the color of his skin.
"This white man said, 'Take him down!' and the next thing I knew, I was sucker punched from the back," Watts said.
For the next four minutes, the group of juveniles punched and kicked Watts, until he nearly passed out. Two customers at the nearby gas station stepped in to help.
"All I could hear before I passed out, 'Don't kill him, or we all go to jail,'" Watts recalled. "If (the customers) had not gotten involved, he would have killed me."
Watts is calling the weekend attack that occurred a block away from his Mason Street home a hate crime. During the attack, Watts says he brought up Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen killed by a block watch member Feb. 26.
"Why me? Remember Trayvon! Remember Trayvon!," Watts recalled. "I meant it as a peaceful way. What happened to Trayvon, I was not responsible for, I live 1,000 miles away! But they kept saying, 'Kill him! Kill Him! Kill him!' because I'm a white man."
Where are the calls for hate crimes investigations? Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Oh wait, they only come if the allegations fit their narrative.
Where is the Congressional Black Caucus on this one? Here is a crime that was clearly racially motivated. Where are their condemnations?
Perhaps the most stunning part of this is that detectives do not consider this to be a hate crime.
Let’s see. You have attackers of various ethnicities who make a racial comments that seem to explain their attack and this is not a hate crime.
Does anyone wonder if the victim had been black and racial slurs used, whether the authorities would even hesitate calling this a hate crime.
This is positively Orwellean. All are equal. Some are just more equal than others.
Well said Elaine!
A true story of a whole group who took a lot of bad treatment and turned around their own lives, with no help from any "Affirmative Action" programs.
And, I don't hear any cries for Reparations.
Good show, Irish!
Well put, Elaine! Wear your natural red hair with Celtic pride! : ) Thanks also for the history lesson that I can assure you has been left out of the history books in America's government schools!
We do celebrate Celtic Pride. Part of that celebration Pride is the "Christianization of The Great Celts"...BECAUSE THE WERE FIERCE WARRIORS AND CHRISTIANITY DID NOT DECREASE THEIR FIGHTING ABILITY BUT RATHER GAVE IT "VALUE & DIRECTION" AND AN APPRECIATION OF LIFE !
THE "HIGHLANDERS" EARNED NOT ONLY RESPECT FOR THEIR FIGHTING ABILITY BUT GOD'S DISCERNMENT FOR THOSE "LITTLE ONES" THAT GOD GAVE US THAT NEEDED "PROTECTION".
We were well on our way of acceptance, believing in each other, and moving on until BHO started his divisive tactics
No Obama just allowed what was festering in the inner cities to come out.
blacks have sold all of the white people a bill of goods for years and the white people have been stupid enough to believe them and fall for all of their lies and BS. Some of these whites need to go to ANY large city and go to the balck neighborhoods and see what kind of respect and kindness they experience in the black neighborhood that is if they are alive long enough to realise they made a major mistake by trusting ANy black.
Good blog and we'll be struggling against the hypothesis that some are more equal than other until Nov.2012
Marcia its better that we have 3 aces, the WH and Congress ( Senate and House ). I'm thinking that the latter
is not getting serious attention; nevertheless if the three ara achieved in our favor, God help us.
No al and Jessie will hide on this one.
They don't want to be known as the two that Started the second US Civil War.
They will leave that one up to Obama.
By the way, has Obama commented on this one yet.
Statistics on crime do not lie, Jackson and Sharpton lie.
Statistics dont discriminate, Jackson and Sharpton discriminate.
Statistics are not racist, Jackson and Sharpton are racist.
