Beaten with Racial Epithets While Being White in a Car in Pittsburgh

MLK’s Dream Going Up in Smoke as Whites are Beaten with Racial Epithets in America…

Beaten racial epithets in Pittsburgh

On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, DC. He spoke of a day when equality would rule the day. Among other things, he said…

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

“I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Here we are in 2013, fifty years after he spoke his immortal words and it appears that things have not improved. Things have gone backwards. White people are being beaten with racial epithets.

I blame those who persist in fomenting racism. I blame certain politicians who have made race something with which to beat Americans over the head. I also blame racists themselves – white and black – who continue to keep the ugly side of human failure and hatred on the front burner. Finally, I blame political correctness because it is the worst enabler of all.

Political correctness has come to undergird American society by providing a double standard, one for people of color and one for whites. If a black person attacks and harms (or kills) a white person, it is rarely considered a “hate crime.” Yet, it is almost automatically the case when the reverse is true.

From the 1960s to the mid-to-late 1990s, statistics have shown that black on white crime has increased markedly, compared to white on black crime. There is something to be said for the fact that an undeclared and unofficial race war has been going on since at least that time. What’s worse is that the media almost always downplays these horrific events if they report them at all.

Since the Trayvon Martin shooting, we have seen an additional spate of black on white violence. Since the Zimmerman verdict, even more. Australian Chris Lane was gunned down in cold blood by blacks as he was out jogging. David Santucci became another white victim of black rage. Delbert Belton, the nearly 90-year-old Vet became another statistic, killed by several black youths as he sat in his car waiting for a friend. None of these crimes resulted in the charge of a hate crime. Regarding Delbert Belton, I sent an email to the Spokane Chief of Police, Frank Straub, asking how he could be so sure that the murder of Belton had nothing to do with race. I received a response from an Officer Teresa Fuller, who stated:

“Unfortunately in order to charge them with a hate crime, we need more than just the fact they were a different race then (sic) the victim; we must be able to prove that the crime was committed solely because of race and in this instance we do not have any evidence to prove that. I assure you they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Regardless of race or ethnicity we will thoroughly investigate crime in our community and work to bring those responsible to justice.”

In spite of her assurances, it appears that Chief Straub was very quick to inform the public that there was no evidence of a “hate crime.” Apparently, Straub had already “thoroughly” investigated the crime himself to know that.

More recently, we’ve learned that a woman was brutally beaten by several black female teens as she drove her car through a black area of Pittsburgh. “A woman who said she was brutally attacked by a group of black teenagers in Pittsburgh’s North Side Sunday said the girls savagely beat her while calling her racial slurs.

“Ginger Slepski said she suffered multiple injuries, including torn shoulder ligaments. She said she thought the girls were going to kill her.”

Slepski initially drove through the area when at least one of the girls threw a bottle at her car. She stopped, got out, and asked what the problem was and that’s when the racial slurs and the attack began. I guess someone will argue that had she stayed in her car, her beating would not have occurred. Like most people though, she was indignant and not a little angry that someone would simply throw something at her car and wanted to deal with it, as most of us would.

The four African-American girls began to taunt her with racial epithets and then began to beat on her, even yanking on her hair as Slepski tried to get back into her car. They beat her down and began smashing her head into the concrete.

A woman bystander yelled that she was calling the police, which only seemed to make the girls angrier. Finally, a man jumped into save Slepski from her beating. Three of the girls were arrested and face charges, “including ethnic intimidation,” which is Pennsylvania’s version of a “hate crime.”

I can only wonder if the girls had not used racial slurs, whether or not they would have been charged with ethnic intimidation? What proof would there have been that the crime was racially motivated?

Things are getting out of hand, yet no “leaders” in the black community (or the president) are saying anything about this increase in violence, which is obviously racially-motivated. As long as they do not condemn it, it will continue and worsen over time. People need to watch their backs and be ready to record everything.

In the meantime, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is likely rolling over in his grave and who can blame him?
