White Teen Set on Fire in Racial Attack; Media Silent (sort of)

Rate this post

The New American reports: “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.” So spewed the attackers of Melissa Coon’s 13-year-old son, as they doused him with gasoline and set him alight.  Police, they say, are “investigating” whether this is a hate crime.
The attack on the boy took place on the east side of Kansas City, Missouri. Fox 4 Kansas City provides some (sanitized) details, writing, “The victim is a student at East High School and regularly walks home after class. When he reached his porch, two older teens grabbed him, pinned his arms behind his back and then poured gas from a gas can on the boy. They then set the boy on fire.”
Thankfully, the teen victim had the presence of mind to pull his shirt up over his head and snuff out the flames. He was treated at Children’s Mercy hospital, having suffered first-degree burns to his face and head. And police said they were concerned about possible damage to his eyes and lungs.
The concern, however, isn’t translating into national media coverage — or honest coverage anywhere.
Of course, if you scrutinize the few local outlets reporting the story and cut and paste, you can piece the picture together. The Fox article excerpted above provides only the vaguest hint of the attack’s racial nature by quoting Mrs. Coon as saying that her family was told “it’s a hate crime.” KCTV 5 did a bit better, reporting that the victim was white and the assailants black; however, while they quoted the attackers as stating “This is what you get,” for some reason they omitted the “white boy” part. Then there was KMBC.com, which presented the latter but neglected to explicitly identify the race of the criminals, leaving the reader to wonder if the attackers were self-hating Norwegian immigrants.

The media, in their desire to be so PC, purposely leave out the facts/details of stories.  But would you expect anything less?  If Muslims had set this boy on fire, they probably would have changed their names to protect the “innocent until proven guilty”.

  1. Deja vu

  2. I’ve come to the conclusion that all of this talk the left, the MSM, does about “racism” is a massive counterintelpro movement. The reality is that the MSM and the left hate Christians. WASPS. The majority of persons in this nation are white — and the majority are Christian. There are many black Christians, I realize. However, all of this is a smokescreen. By attacking whites, the MSM and left are really attacking Christians as a whole. By trying to make it about race rather than religion, they are creating a false mantra that covers up the real malice of the MSM and left in their hatred towards Christians. Painting whites as the “bad guys” is their goal – because the conservative whites they hate — are really Christians. Do they hate black Christians as much?? Of course. They call black Christians who are conservatives “Uncle Toms”. So, they’ve taken Christianity, and turned that into “race” and are “race baiting” the globe. Their goal?? Genocide of Christians and malice towards Christians advanced on every level in every scenario with every smokescreen excuse possible. But, America is especially hated. We are the anchor for Christiandom globally. When American Christians are not present, the 666 beast system rises. This is just satanic hate for Christians — and if people think all of this is about “race” — I don’t think they see the true level of it.

  3. My heart aches for this young boy and what has been done to him and the
    other white children at this school.
    From an article on American Thinker (March 7) comes more information;
    “At one point an administrator told her that her son could have a transfer only to another district school but said that Allen would have “more problems there” and that he should stay at more “racially diverse” East High (which has no more than 20 white students). Other white students also report a pattern of racial harassment at the high school at the hands of their peers — and, shockingly, their teachers.”

  4. And obama was going to be the great president that was going to bring everyone together! Bring back segragation to protect little white kids? Years ago I had to resist being forced to move to a district where my kids would have been the minority whites. The school had a reputation of the blacks (of all shades) beating up the white kids and as many of them were older the younger victims couldn’t or wouldn’t do anything about it. The school district did nothing. How is that not racism?

  5. HAHAHAHAHA!!!! You poor mistreated white folks!!!
    Gheesh!!!! NEWSFLASH PEOPLE!!!!
    THAT is the tragedy here!!!
    And YES it was a HATE crime. Just like the neighborhood watch commander shooting the unarmed teen in Florida was a hate crime.
    The problem I have with all of you who are BIGOTS posting on this page is this:
    As a Black American…
    I am just as outraged by the crime against the young white man as I am about the crime against the young black man.
    BIGOTS like many of you can’t say the same!

    • Bigots? Raaaaaacist! Can you come up with a more original insult?
      The point here is a hate crime designation is pointless. A crime is a crime. Period.
      Also need the SRM to be more accurate in reporting and not leave out the details to suit their PC baloney.

    • Name calling like using “racist” or “bigot” is just a distraction to avoid the facts in situations. An act of violence against another, irregardless of color, is tragic. Let me tell you something: Black on white crime is FAR more common than white on black crime. It is NEVER called a hate crime when it is against a white person. There is also a very conscious effort when violence is reported to avoid mentioning the race of the offender, unless of course, they might be white. When the crowds of (mostly blacks, as seen from videos) were going bezerk at the malls over the $200.00 Nike sports shoes being sold out, they were called groups of “youths”. I’ve yet to ever see a large group of whites acting like yahoos & destroying property & attacking people over Nike sneakers or anything else ! Same with the so called “flash mobs”. Fella, you can shout BIGOT to kingdom come, but that won’t change the facts. These aren’t statistics that I invented. You don’t like it ?—perhaps instead of name calling & hiding behind the race card, your “community leaders” should spend more time mentoring and teaching your youth how to conduct themselves in a civil society. It isn’t by presistently playing the “blame & race-card game”. BTW-the facts behind the shooting of the black teen in FL are still under investigation. It’s a tragic situation when a youth -or anyone else for that matter, is killed. P.S. the shooter doesn’t look “white” to me. Geeez, black/white/red/yellow–it’s a sad state of affairs.

    • You are so sad. Nobody is crying poor white people. Idiot. I am a white woman….Yes, white women were able to vote after black men. I am not racist, however I do believe in equal rights, which means charge these kids with a FEDERAL CRIME. They did it. Bottom line. No ifs about it.

  6. Sounds like the white girl who claimed a black girl threw acid in her face then was found to have commited the act herself. Set on fire and only had first degree burns when gasoline was poured on him? No burns on back or legs? No evidence reported of gasoline/burns on porch? And NO witnesses? Great police work out there; Barney Fife would be proud.

    • Have you even read the whole story about that incident? He wouldn’t have had burns on his back or legs in that situation. AND, while you’re fact finding-why don’t you read about the Tawana Brawley ordeal -it’s been years ago, but it was a “story” that really had everyone fired up around the country.

  7. I just have two questions…When is Al Sharpton planning to march for this teen’s justice in the name of RACIAL JUSTICE and Why hasnt the President sent the Justice Department to Kansas City to investigate the City’s apparent RACIAL BIAS againt this teen?

  8. all judges should be blind then there would be no color to interfer with a decent dicision to know this is just wrong, attempted murder gets my vote

  9. It doesn’t matter if someone is black or white or red or yellow. We are people of this earth. A crime is a crime. When they find the two teenagers, they need to treat them the same way as anyone else. When the day of judgement comes, the Lord is not going to look at which race did what. We will have to answer for ourselves. I am Native American and my people have gotten over what happened to us and everybody else needs to do the same. If you continue to live in the past, you will crash. Try it while driving on an empty road sometime. Drive your car forward while constantly looking in the rear-view mirror, you won’t get very far without crashing. The same goes for life. You can’t move forward if you aren’t looking in that direction.

    • Well thank you for that comment. I am 36 and am a pastor and motivational speaker. I have learned a lot through this life. The worst thing to do in this life is to keep the information to ourselves. It needs to be said.

      • I second what Grouchy wrote. You are an example and inspiration, Justin. May your words be heard and read by those who wallow in the narcissism of victimhood.
        God be with you!

  10. Ok, lets break this down. 1st its time Black people worked hard en stop blaming the white man for their ordeal or lack of success, 2nd the white man should stop looking at himself as an endangered species its time he produced more children en stop blaming other races for his declining numbers. 3rd its time we all acknowledge that even black people can be racist something I think isn’t the case. 4th, there’s nothing wrong with one being proud of their heritage as long as ya pride doesn’t make u hate or look at other races as being inferior.
    Someone brought to my attention a burning incident of a 13yr old white boy by black teens. This attack was racist en should be condemned en I agree with those that say Obama should have handled the incident the same way he did with this black boy that was shot, but hey what if Obama has no knowledge of the white boy burning incident? I think white people should have held rallies en demand justice but no one has come out to make the issue public except a few posts I see on here.
    One thing is for sure ( hating another human doesn’t make u a better human) Its time we stopped blaming other races for our short comings. I’m human en that’s what matter for be4 God we the same.

    • Very well put. All of the people of this country need to do just as you said. We as a people bleed all the same and need to come together as one color and stand up to the ones who decide to do evil or try and make extra drama of all situations.

    • The media peaked for the Florida incident. That is why Obama knew about it. MEDIA. I didn’t know anything about this story until a person told me about it in response to the Florida shooting….”I don’t see the news stations jumping on the story about the white kid being set on fire!” Of course not. The media feeds off of certain stories….The fact is-In high profile media cases- the black man can not be held responsible…Then it is considered racist or a hate crime. It is stupid. Examples: OJ (murderer) , Rodney King (drug adict), Leonard Little (Rams-Involuntary Manslaughter-he killed someone when he was drunk driving and got 3 months!), Michael Vick (Seriously!!! I am a pit Bull owner-he got a slap on the hand), and many more…Regardless of the crime/ the race/ the situation-they should all be handled fair. Screw the media. And screw the public for being so stupid.

  11. Sounds like a hate crime to me. How about charging the kids with a federal crime??????????????? Oh, not enough news coverage??? This makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. This poor kid and his family. My heart goes out to them.
    And the boys that did it????? I am sure their families are great too….(sarcasm). Racism will always be around. However, when hate crimes happen-treat them fair! Otherwise racism will hit a peak this generation has never seen before. People are angry. Equality.
