Diversity Disaster: The Censored Truth About `Fat Tuesday` Riots

Diversity Disaster: New York`s Puerto Rican Day 2000


The news unfit to print for the
last couple of weeks has to do with black violence
against whites trying to celebrate “Fat
Tuesday” in cities all over the country.
Known in French as “Mardi Gras” in
New Orleans, the day from now on might be better known
as Bloody rather than Fat. 

In Philadelphia, police rounded
up some 80 people for street violence.
In Fresno, a mob stormed the city`s Tower
District and threw bottles at the cops, and one person
was sent to the hospital with stab wounds.
But it was in Seattle that Bloody Tuesday got
really nasty.

“There will be no more Fat
Tuesdays,” Seattle Mayor Paul Schell pronounced
after the city`s “youth” proved itself
incapable of having a good time the day before Lent
without murdering someone.
The someone who got murdered was a white man,
20-year-old Kris
, who tried to rescue a white woman from being
trampled by a black mob.
Mr. Kime, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
reports, “was smashed over the head with a
bottle, and kicked and stomped by a group of
men.”  The
police stood aside and did nothing.

The reason the police did
nothing?  That`s exactly what they were ordered to do.
Seattle police Sgt. Daniel Beste later sent a letter
of apology
to Mr. Kimes` mother, saying “we
also were aware of the rising tide of violence long
before your son was killed and continually asked, `Why
don`t we stop this?`
Unfortunately, my question was never
answered.”  Sgt.
Beste also enclosed the 200 dollars he received for
the “amount of overtime I was paid by the
taxpayers of this city to stand by while they were
beaten and your son killed.”
The city is lucky he didn`t send in his badge
as well.

Everyone knows exactly what
happened in Seattle and the other cities–black mobs
targeted whites for mayhem and murder–but no one will
say so, and neither the police nor the media want to
admit it.  “We`ve
got suspects who are males and females, blacks,
whites, Asians–even one East Indian,” beams
another police sergeant who seems to be a bit thicker
than Sgt. Beste.
“I don`t know what motivated these people,
but basically the common denominator is `young
and intoxicated.`”

Nor will the city`s black
“leadership” acknowledge any responsibility.
“We are concerned by how the violence is
being portrayed,” James
Kelly, president of the local Urban League
at a news conference a few days after the bloodshed.
“Our fear is that it`s become a race issue.”
Gosh, why would anyone ever think it might be a
“race issue,” do you think?

But of course it`s not a race
issue, if only because the perceptions projected by
the media, in so far as the violence was reported at
all, depict it the way the police, the city officials
and the black “leadership” want it depicted.
Everyone`s at fault, you see; everything`s OK;
just `young and intoxicated`; there`s no racial
problem.  “Clearly
hatred has no place in our community,” the
mayor`s spokesman told the press.

He`d better look again.
Photos and videos of the violence clearly show
blacks attacking, beating and kicking white victims.
One local talk show host told The Washington
, which carried a news
only two weeks after the violence, “I
started getting calls from people saying, `The
newspapers are sweeping this under the rug.
It clearly was black on white, nobody wants to
report it; what are they afraid of?`”
What they`re afraid of is the hard truth that
racial hatred does in fact have a rather important
place in the community, and that the hatred isn`t
found where racial hatred is supposed to be–among
whites.  In the war against “racism,” in the endless crusade
for “racial reconciliation,” it`s always
whites who are supposed to repent, confess, apologize,
recant, and eventually pay up or get punished or
undergo therapy.
Whites are supposed to be the haters.
Blacks are supposed to be the victims.

Obviously, not all blacks were
violent or driven by hatred in Seattle or anywhere
else, and obviously there no doubt were violent
lawbreakers of all races and backgrounds.
But the burden of the evidence is that the
violence and presumably the racial hatred that lay at
the core of the violence began with blacks.

“The bottom line is that
violence has no color,” purrs Mr. Kelly, in a
desperate effort to keep the lid on the Big Lie of a
white monopoly on racial hate.
In Seattle, as in Fresno and Philadelphia,
violence certainly did have a color, and the color
wasn`t white.  Whether
the newspapers print it or not, everyone in America
knows that truth–except the power holders who insist
on denying it to themselves and lying to everyone
