Diversity vs. Safety (contd.): What The Charlottesville Hate Crimes Say About America's Future
"Hate crimes" against whites, ignored by the national media, now appear to have become so commonplace that I receive accounts of three or four a week from all over the country. Because most of them are covered, if at all, only by local media, it's often difficult to confirm them or learn any details about what actually happened. One anti-white hate crime that is confirmed comes from the liberal paradise of Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the university founded by Thomas Jefferson
Earlier this month Charlottesville police arrested nine black teenagers and one adult for a series of what police themselves describe as "race-based attacks" on white university students over the last six months. Between September and January, police say, the group set out "with the intention of committing assaults."
"Assailants did say the victims were chosen on the basis of race," an officer, Lt. J.W. Gibbon, told the press. Not all the victims were actually white, but "their appearance was white, not African-American." Awhile all the assailants were themselves black, they were "accompanied by whites in some of the assaults." The whites were not charged because they didn't actually strike the blows.
In the most recent attack, six members of the gang allegedly attacked three white male university students, punched and kicked them, and gave one a concussion. Another white student reports being attacked two weeks earlier by three black males who gave him "black eyes and sore ribs." Three more white students say they were attacked by a group of black males and females the same evening.
As crimes go, the assaults were not especially horrible. There were no gang rapes. no torture, no murder. But what there was in the crimes was black racial hatred of whites—which is why you've never heard of them.
Everyone has heard of Jasper, Texas, where, in 1998, three white men dragged to death a black man. President Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno called a special press conference to deplore it and announce that the FBI would investigate it (even though the crime was solved and the three suspects arrested within 12 hours). The Rev. Jesse Jackson and a host of professional Afro-racial agitators descended on the town to preach and pray, deplore and denounce. For weeks "sensitivity sessions" were held in Jasper for whites who tearfully confessed to acts of racial bias they had committed. Not once did any black confess to an act of bias against whites.
The Charlottesville crimes are not comparable to the Jasper atrocity, and there's no reason for them to gain national attention as crimes. But then the Jasper crime was not reported as a crime like the Manson murders or the Lindbergh kidnapping—but because of the white racial hatred it supposedly disclosed. The parallel with Charlottesville is the black hatred revealed. But if white racial hate is national news, black racial hate is not even newsworthy.
Indeed, no sooner had the police themselves confirmed the racial motivation in Charlottesville than city authorities stepped up to the plate to deny or evade them.
Less than a week after the initial arrests and the police statement confirming racial motivation, the Mayor of Charlottesville [VDARE.COM NOTE: The Mayor of Charlottesville is Blake Caravati. You can send him mail.] issued a public statement moaning and mewing about the whole matter. After perfunctory expressions of sympathy for the victims, the mayor gushed about the poor, pitiful perpetrators themselves and their families. But the mayor's principal non-conclusion was uttered in his statement that "whether these were or were not racially motivated assaults" has "yet to be determined by the Commonwealth's Attorney."
So, despite what the police have already stated, despite the evidence from the suspects themselves as to why they committed the assaults and despite the racial identity of the attackers and their victims, it has yet "to be determined" whether black racial hatred was at work in the lovely and liberal metropolis of Charlottesville. And since the mayor also stated that he had held "a very open and frank discussion this morning" with black minister Reverend Alvin Edwards and [Charlottesville chapter] NAACP President Edna-Jakki Miller about these "incidents" (not, you see, crimes, but "incidents") "and why they occurred, it's probably pretty clear what conclusions the Commonwealth's Attorney will reach as to the motivations of the assaults.
The Charlottesville attacks are not major crimes, but they do teach us important lessons. What lessons, exactly? That black racial hatred really exists and is capable of committing violence against whites. That political authorities won't denounce black racial hate as strongly as white racial hate and maybe won't even acknowledge it exists. And finally, that the Charlottesville attacks and their non-recognition by the authorities and the press tell us clearly what the future of whites in the glorious "diversity" of the coming non-white majority nation is likely to be.
