The Knoxville torture slayings in a nutshell: Naive white girl falls for black boy. Black boy beats white girl. White girl finally leaves black boy. Black boy and his black friends take out their anger by raping, torturing, and killing the first white couple they come across.
The white girl in this story is Daphne Sutton (pictured with child). The black boy is Lemaricus Davidson. The murdered white couple was Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.
WBIR.com in Knoxville has just released details of the conversations Daphne Sutton had with Knoxville Police shortly after the murders. Sutton revealed to police that she had only known Davidson for two weeks when she moved in with him at 2316 Chipman Street. She said she had never dated a black man before, and her mind was clouded by drugs:
“I’ve been living with my parents for like a year and a half, and I really can’t stand it. You know how it is, living with your parents. So I met him, and he was getting this house and asked me to move in with him, and I guess just the first person to take care of me I jumped into. I don’t even date black guys, my kids are white, so I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. I really don’t. Maybe, I don’t know, the drugs, the weed.”
Davidson regularly beat Sutton, and eventually she left him and moved out. The very next night, Davidson and some of his black friends carjacked a white couple that was out on a date. Letalvis Cobbins, Davidson’s brother, testified that Christian and Newsom “was uh kissing in the car or whatever” when Davidson carjacked them and drove them back to his Chipman Street home.
There, Newsom was beaten and anally raped, before being shot three times. His body was set on fire and left by some railroad tracks.
Christian was killed only after hours of sexual torture. Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan has testified that Christian suffered horrific injuries to her vagina, anus and mouth. She was raped in all three orifices and then further sexually violated with a broken chair leg.
Channon was beaten in the head with enough force to cause bruising on her brain. A chemical was poured down her throat, and her body, including her bleeding and battered genital area, was scrubbed with the same solution.
Christian was then “hog-tied,” and her face was covered tightly with a plastic trash bag. Davidson stuffed her into a large trash can in the kitchen, and commented that he needed to “take out the trash.” Christian died slowly in the trash can, suffocating. A few feet away, her exhausted killers celebrated their long night of rape and murder with a “hearty breakfast of sausage, biscuits, oatmeal and eggs.”
During the night, while Channon was still being raped, Davidson called Daphne Sutton and invited her back to his house, telling her he had a gift for her. While Channon Christian was being guarded in the bathroom by Vanessa Coleman (a black woman), Davidson presented his ex-girlfriend with a Sears bag containing Channon’s clothing and jewelry.
There’s no question these crimes were racially motivated. Davidson was angry his white girlfriend had left him, and when he saw a young white couple kissing he snapped and decided to take his anger out on them. The Knoxville authorities didn’t quite see things this way.
Astonishingly, the authorities considered the fact Davidson’s white girlfriend had just left him to be a mitigating factor in their decision not to seek hate crimes charges. The District Attorney actually said, “We know from our investigation that the people charged in this case were friends with white people, socialized with white people, dated white people. So not only is there no evidence of any racial animus, there’s evidence to the contrary.”
Imagine a white male trying to claim he can’t be charged with a hate crime because he has socialized with black people in the past. People would just laugh. In fact, a 14-year-old white boy in suburban Chicago was charged with a hate crime last year for using a racial epithet toward his black girlfriend after she broke up with him.
Two men from the city of Rochester, NY were arrested for carjacking a pregnant woman from a suburban Rochester plaza last Tuesday night. Court documents reveal the suspects tore off all the victim’s clothing and forced her into the backseat of her car, where she was raped.
The victim begged the suspects to stop raping her, fearing they would kill her unborn baby. Instead, the suspects repeatedly threatened to kill the woman (and her unborn baby) by shooting her in the stomach. After the 90 minute ordeal, the suspects tied the victim up and left her by the side of a rural road.
On Thursday, the local NBC news affiliate interviewed State Assemblyman David Koon, whose 18-year-old daughter Jennifer was carjacked at the tony Pittsford Plaza in 1993. The college sophomore’s battered and bullet-ridden body was discovered a couple hours later in a seedy alley in the city of Rochester. Semen recovered from Koon’s body led to the conviction of Willis Knight (he now goes by the name Rasool Khadafi, following a jailhouse conversion to Islam), a city resident.
Koon noted there are “a lot of similarities” between this week’s carjacking and his daughter’s 16 years ago, but left unmentioned (by Koon and by NBC News) was the fact that in both cases white women in the suburbs were victimized by young black males from the city.
The refusal to confront the obvious racial aspect of the carjackings is reminiscent of the mainstream media’s coverage of the abductions and murders of college students Eve Carson and Lauren Burk in spring 2008. Initially the media spent countless hours analyzing the similarities between the two cases, but after the murderers were captured not one commentator pointed out the glaring fact that both young white women had been murdered by black men. Instead, the coverage shifted, rationalizations were made, and institutional forces took the brunt of the blame. Carson’s murder became an indictment of North Carolina’s ineffectual parole system, while Burk’s murder was attributed to the military’s failure to screen returning Iraq veterans for mental health disorders.
In the autobiographical work Soul on Ice, influential black writer Eldridge Cleaver recounted how in his younger days he purposely targeted white women for rape. Cleaver wrote, “I crossed the tracks and sought out White prey. I did this consciously, deliberately, willfully, methodically… Rape was an insurrectionary act. It delighted me that I was defying and trampling upon the White man’s law… and that I was defiling his women… I felt I was getting revenge. From the site of the act of rape, consternation spreads outwardly in concentric circles. I wanted to send waves of consternation throughout the white race.” [bold added for emphasis]
Federal crime statistics suggest that black males continue to “cross the tracks” to seek out white prey.
Of the 111,490 single-offender rapes committed against white women in the U.S. in 2005, Department of Justice statistics show that less than half (44.5%) were committed by white men and a full one-third (33.6%) were committed by black men. (Only 13% of Americans are black.) Of 28,350 multiple-offender rapes, only 9% were committed by groups of white men. 30% were committed by groups of black men, and 43% were committed by mixed-race groups.
Victim’s advocacy groups report that the majority of women who are raped are victimized by someone they know, while the rest are victimized by strangers. It’s hard to see how one-third of the white women in either group could be raped by black men. After all, interracial friendships and relationships are still not very common, and most neighborhoods remain racially segregated.
How are all these interracial rapes occurring? The most likely explanation is that black men continue to venture into the suburbs to seek out white prey.
White women who don’t date black men are “racist” and “morally repugnant.” That’s what Washington Post Style Columnist Carolyn Hax wrote in response to a letter from a young white woman who has no problems with interracial relationships in general, but feels they just aren’t for her.
Although Hax wrote it was “horrifying” the young woman had no interest in dating black men, the truth is the questioner was expressing the prevailing view of interracial dating among white women.
While most whites express approval of black-white marriages in general (78% in 2007, up from 4% in 1958), studies have shown that white women still display strong personal preferences for a white partner. One study found that, after controlling for all other attributes (height, weight, attractiveness, etc.), a black man would need to earn $216,500 to be as appealing to a white woman as would a white man earning $62,500.
By depicting interracial relationships as normal and inevitable, and branding any individuals who don’t date interracially as racist, people like Hax are trying to abolish the white race by changing the racial dating preferences of young white women. Unfortunately, Hax has a large audience. Her column is carried in more than 100 newspapers and is geared toward people under the age of 30.
The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating a string of recent anti-Mexican bias attacks in the Bronx. Over a three-day period, five Mexican immigrants have been attacked. Four of the victims were beaten; one was stabbed. Anti-Mexican epithets were used during the attacks.
So who is committing these heinous assaults? White people?
No. And yes.
The suspects in all of the attacks are believed to be Dominican, making these hate crimes Hispanic-on-Hispanic. But since the FBI doesn’t track Hispanic hate crime suspects, these attacks in the Bronx are all recorded as white-on-Hispanic.
Don’t believe me? Here’s a link to the FBI’s Hate Crime Incident Report. In the ‘Bias Motivation’ section, ‘Anti-Hispanic’ is listed. Yet in the ‘Suspected Offender’s Race’ section, Hispanic is not listed. Hispanic suspects are recorded as ‘White.’
This asymmetrical reporting has important implications when it comes to hate crimes involving Hispanics and whites.
‘White’ is a Suspect category and ‘Anti-Hispanic’ is a Bias category, so white-on-Hispanic hate crimes are recorded as such. But because Hispanics aren’t a Suspect category, the only way to record a Hispanic-on-white hate crime is as a White-on-White hate crime. Since this is rather illogical, it’s common for prosecutors to simply not pursue hate crimes charges in Hispanic-on-white attacks.
(As an aside, it should be pointed out that even though Anti-White is a Bias category on the FBI’s Hate Crime Incident Report, many prosecutors don’t consider whites to be a ‘protected class’ and they are therefore reluctant to treat any anti-White crimes as hate crimes. When Attorney General Eric Holder testified before the Senate in June, he repeatedly claimed that hate crime laws are not designed to protect whites.)
For example, last month in Denver a 49-year-old white woman was killed when she was intentionally run-over by a Mexican driver. A witness told police that immediately before the hit-and-run the suspects shouted, “We’re Mexicans! We’ll kill you white bitches!”
Rather than prosecute the murder as a White-on-White hate crime, the prosecutors went to great lengths to sanitize the witness’s statement of any evidence of anti-White bias. The word “white” was removed from the indictment, and “white bitches” was shortened to just “bitches.”
Anti-white violence is rarely treated as bias crime, while internecine violence between Hispanics is recorded as white-on-Hispanic bias crime. When it comes to hate crime recording, the deck is clearly stacked against whites.
As a result, in the fewer than 10,000 hate crimes recorded each year, more than half the suspects are white. At the same time, there are 650,000 total interracial violent crimes committed in this country each year, and 90% of them are black-on-white.
By devoting an inordinate amount of attention to flawed hate crime statistics and ignoring overall violent crime patterns, the media gives an inaccurate portrayal of violent crime in America.
