Media ignor another black-on-white assault

Last month, two (white) employees of The Virginia-Pilot were assaulted by a mob of 100 black teens in Norfolk, VA.
But no TV station or newspaper — not even the victims’ own newspaper, Virginia-Pilot — deemed it newsworthy. Two weeks after the assault, a colleague of the victims, editorial writer Michelle Williams finally wrote about it.
It is not just Norfolk where attacks by blacks against whites are ignored and unreported by the media. This is also happening in Charleston, West Virginia.
Reader Stu writes in an e-mail to Fellowship of the Minds:

“This is not on the scale of Norfolk, VA, but still nevertheless is frightening. This attack occurred in Charleston, WV one block from the federal building, city hall and the police department. Right square in the middle of downtown on a Sunday evening in a well lit and traveled area. A family leaving the mall is verbally harassed and then the father gets assaulted, knocked unconscious and robbed in front of them. The main state newspaper the WV Gazette did not carry the story and neither did the TV news outlets even though it occurred also directly in front of the CBS affiliate’s main office. The lack of coverage is unreal. The city’s secondary and more conservative newspaper, the Charleston Daily Mail, carried the story and posted it briefly online.”


Paul Fallon reports for the Charleston Daily Mail, May 2, 2012, that Charleston detectives are looking for two men who robbed and beat a man unconscious in front of his girlfriend and children downtown.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. Saturday, at the Charleston Center Mall, near the Brick Street Insurance building.
Sgt. Bobby Eggleton, assistant chief of detectives, said a 45-year-old man was leaving Tidewater Grill with his girlfriend and his 9- and 13-year old children. Two men, described as heavyset black men in their 20s, approached the group and started making rude comments.

The man asked the two suspects to stop making the comments, but the situation got worse. The two then attacked the man, knocking him down and kicking him repeatedly in the head and face.
Eggleton said, “He was beaten pretty badly.” The man suffered a severe concussion and facial lacerations. The suspects then dug into his pockets and stole $30.
The suspects did not hurt the woman or the children. The victim, who has asked police not to release his identity, was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center’s General Hospital. He was released from the hospital on Sunday. Officers do not believe he suffered any long-term injuries from the beating.
Eggleton said the victim did nothing to antagonize the situation and acted as many people would have. “I can’t say he did anything that any other man wouldn’t have done,” Eggleton said. “If I’m coming out of the mall, and someone says something crude to me and my family, I’m going to say something back. And I wouldn’t expect to get beaten for it. Such cowardly acts against people and their families are just uncalled for.”
Eggleton called the attack a random act of “senseless violence” and that he was very surprised by the crime and where it occurred. “But even more than surprising me, this really disgusts me,” the police sergeant said. Eggleton has discussed the issue with Charleston Town Center security. Mall security personnel will be extra vigilant.
Officers have looked for video surveillance tapes but have been unsuccessful so far. The police is asking that anyone with information contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 304-348-6480.

  1. It troubles me that the news media is afraid to report black on white crime. It tells me the black organizations are powerful enough to stir up the black community to do great damage like they did back in 1992 in Los Angeles. The black organizations also appear to be given an extreme amount of news media coverage when they want it. There is a great injustice taking place and no one is addressing this problem.

     
  2. People you will not see much said by the media, as the Obamanation wants non black to start something so they can stir up the black community again and bring on martial law!

     
  3. Random act of violence my patootie. More like a “HATE CRIME”!

     
  4. These acts of black on white violence are not random like the news media is mentioning, they are acts of revenge for the Treyvon Martin killing in Florida, I get all the news from around the country and it’s happening in many places. It’s not random. I hate to say this but it looks like white people are being uninformed to their great hurt and it may actually be time to carry a gun. No I am not joking.

     
  5. Media: Nothing to see here– just “social justice” in action, whitey deserved it– move along.
