Dan Roodt’s article “Why I Am Ashamed to Be a ‘South African’” eloquently decries the shameful proclivity of the international media to ignore violent crimes against whites in that country. In America, of course, media outlets also commonly ignore black on white violence, as no less a melanin-enhanced luminary than Thomas Sowell has pointed out.
Recently, certain sectors of the internet have been buzzing about a horrendous crime in Pinellas County, Florida caught on tape, the contents of which afterwards went viral, in which three fifteen-year old black boys ganged up on a rather scrawny thirteen-year old white boy, beating, kicking, and pummeling him for an interminable length of time on the school bus, while no one else on the bus did anything to actively intervene. The driver of the bus (an older black man) did call the police and ask for help, saying the boy was getting “beaten to death,” but the amount of time that he allowed this attack to continue is absolutely appalling. It certainly seems as if the man could have done something. In any event, he had a responsibility to try to protect the 13-year old, and he clearly didn’t.
Thankfully, the boy didn’t die, though he suffered a broken arm and two black eyes in the attack. It seems that the trio of saggy-pantsed gangstas tried to sell the Caucasian lad marijuana, and the boy told the school authorities; the beating was in retaliation for him being a “snitch.”
Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of national media outlets—the same ones who pushed Trayvon-martyr mania on us-- have utterly ignored this story. (Google it and you will find that nobody but Fox News and Breitbart seem to be paying attention.) But thankfully we live in a time in which these outlets no longer have a stranglehold on the dissemination of information. Thanks to the scrappy sites of the burgeoning alternative Right (AmRen, V-Dare, and others), people are hearing about this story and others like it.
The video, posted below, makes for disturbing, if not positively enraging, viewing. While I would caution against indulging in sweeping generalizations and unhelpful hyperbole (after all, plenty of young black boys aren’t violent, drug-dealing thugs and most racially-integrated school bus rides pass without incident) it is hard not to roll one’s eyes at the recent judgment of a judge that two of the three boys should receive little more than nine-months probation for an attack that could well have resulted in a fatality.
In short, we ought not let this recorded incident prejudice us unduly, but reasonable conclusions can, and should, be drawn from contemplating such an unsavory event.
