If the Races Were Reversed, We’d Be Hearing About This Beyond Denver

By Debbie Schlussel

If White people were targeting Black men at a big city mall in America and beating them senseless and filming it for racial snuff films, I guarantee it’d be a national media story.  In fact, we’d see Presidential campaign commercials vilifying the Republican Presidential nominee with it.  But, sadly, since it’s the other way around here, it remains a news story confined to Denver.  The roles of the races and racism in this case simply don’t fit the mainstream media’s preferred narrative of victims and victimhood.


Where Are the Blacks Against Black Violence?

Peter DeQuattro, a 25-year-old cook, exited the Mall Ride at Civic Center Station around 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 8, after his shift at a Lower Downtown bar.

His next recollection was writhing on a gurney in the back of an ambulance, an eye swollen shut and adrenaline pumping as EMTs struggled to restrain him.

DeQuattro, who is white, was one of the most recent men targeted in a downtown-centered spree of attacks where small groups of black men and youths — many with admitted gang ties — tried to knock out white or Latino men with whacks to the head. They sometimes stole from them or taunted them with racial epithets.

DeQuattro never knew what hit him, though police have told him three men blindsided him from behind and then pummeled his face while he struggled from the ground to fight them off. In the process, they broke a bone just above his eye. The maroon bruise is just starting to fade, two weeks later.

“I usually don’t have to worry about these things,” said DeQuattro, hinting that his 6-foot, 4-inch stature normally deters would-be muggers. In this case, it might have been an incentive. “I never thought I would be the victim of a hate crime.”

No way. A hate crime like this–a race-based hate crime–would never happen in this Obama era of post-racialism. Would it?

Denver police announced Friday that they’d been investigating the spree of similar assaults in tourist areas like the 16th Street Mall and LoDo for four months and had arrested 32 suspects.

Police apprehended a 33rd man, Torrence McCall, when he turned himself in Sunday afternoon after first calling a local television station.

A gang-prevention leader, the Rev. Leon Kelly, has suggested the assaults are being videotaped and used to show how quickly the assailants can knock out their victims. According to Kelly, the recordings are traded on the black market and bolster street credibility.

Hmmm . . . there’s a market for beat-the-cracker snuff films. What does that tell you about racism against White people in the Black community in America? It’s far too accepted. That’s what it tells me. As I always note in these stories, I have the pin above in my political button collection. It’s a pin worn by White liberals in the ’60s. So sad that we’ll likely never see a “Blacks Against Black Violence” pin.

The 26 attacks that police know about have followed a similar pattern. A small group of black men approach their white or Latino victim. Sometimes, racial epithets are used to taunt victims before they’re attacked. But often, they’re sucker-punched with “a whack to the head” and sometimes robbed, said Lt. Matt Murray.

Like I said, this one is restricted to Denver media reporting because only White on Black racism merits national attention in America.

Writes reader “DP”:

The MSM is AWOL in the coverage of this story. If 35 Whites were arrested for targeted attacks on Blacks it would be all over the news. Additionally, Sharpton, Jackson, etc. would be there to make sure that the perps received the maximum sentence. This, as well as many other instances, shows that hate-crime laws are meant not to protect, but to elevate one segment of society over the other. . . . Not reporting what is happening in Denver is bad enough. Worse yet, is that they are not the only major city reporting this same type of behavior.

Sadly, right on target.

Also, R.R. a few days ago in a comment posted this video that shows Somali Muslims attacking and assaulting whites, including several children, in St. Paul. This would be all over the national news if it were white Americans attacking Muslims:

But Muslims whine about non-existent hate crimes against Muslims, while Muslims attack non-Muslims all the time.

* Yawn * Same ol, same ol. Historically and statistically when a white racist attacks others, it has been a physical attack accompanied by verbal taunts, but rarely with property taken from the victim. When non-whites attack others, regardless of motive, often property is taken, so police are quick to classify the crime as a “robbery”, regardless of verbal taunting.

The so-called “racial dialogue” that our mensa candidate attorney general referred to is not happening because anyone trying to speak the truth in the USA regarding race is immediately attacked as a racist, regardless of the speakers race! I.e. – Bill Cosby talks about the black community, and is attacked (verbally). The most racist, hate filled people in this country are…. NOT white.

And of course the excuse for many black-on-white attacks is that somehow, some way, ALL non-blacks owe blacks for something. Never mind the fact that an awful lot of us Americans are descended from people who immigrated to the USA long after slavery was abolished, and of course had nothing whatsoever to do with slavery or racism. The real truth, that “we” can’t “dialogue” about is of course that black slavery was and still is TO THIS VERY DAY perpetrated by…. drum roll… BLACKS! And of course muslim invaders in Africa. Which makes one wonder why anyone of black African descent would ever want to have anything to do with islam, especially when most arab speakers refer to black Africans as “Abd’s” which means “slave” or “servent”.

And we all know that when some white dude pulls out a gun and shoots a few of these Denver attackers, or even just beats a few of them down, that’s when all hell will REALLY break loose, and RaceBaiters, Incorporated will be bussed in on the SharptonJackson Express- to demand the black gangsters be released….

    From your post –

    And of course muslim invaders in Africa. Which makes one wonder why anyone of black African descent would ever want to have anything to do with islam, especially when most arab speakers refer to black Africans as “Abd’s” which means “slave” or “servent”.

    It is also interesting to note that the Caliph (literally “follower”) is required to be a member of Mohammed’s tribe and, therefore, be a white man.

Don’t be surprised if this gang of sub-animals gets celebrated as “The Denver 35”.

And now, in Pearcy,Arkansas, a gang of Blacks slaughtered a White family of FIVE. Reverse the races,and……..

Naaawwwww, Blacks don’t have “the power to be racist” ( YES,they do – they have very powerful,Left Wing, White & Jewish Proxy / Friends-in-High-Places, to give them the freedom to be )

WHAT “White Priviledge”?
WHAT “Systematic Oppression”?

FBI says 51% of homicides in America are committed by black males. Which is 6% of population. Sociopaths.

i’m no stranger to black-on-white crime… i grew-up in a suburb of detroit. i went to a private high school on the border of detroit. to get to school, i had to take two separate busses each morning. my first week in high school i’d accidentally got on the wrong bus; the bus that went to detroit’s notorious finney high school which has always had a black student majority. so, as the bus pulled away i soon realized – as did all the black students on the bus – that i wasn’t supposed to be there. i was instantly barraged with taunts and by the time the bus made the next stop just a few blocks away, i was covering up from non-stop punches. when the bus door finally opened, i was unceremoniously kicked in the back and sent spralling to the ground.

i don’t hate blacks, but at the same time, i’ve never forgotten this life lesson.

And to think the Democratic National Convention was in Denver. Obamaland. Hope this gets more coverage. Love to see how the MSM plays it. Oh Yeah, MSM will say, “Conservatives play the fear card. How racist!” I would like to see Jon Stewart, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Anderson Cooper, Chris Matthews and Roland Martin slapped upside the head and videotaped.

CaliforniaScreaming on November 24, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    CaliforniaScreaming – you forgot to put our two CA senators into the slapped upside the head catagory. I wonder what the top bid would be to slap Boxer or Feinstein upside the head?

Most (not all of course) Black Americans feel that the slave era and Jim Crow laws allow them carte blanche for any behavoir, whether criminal or just obnoxious. Sadly, the rest of our society remains silent. Sharpton, Jackson LLC sit on top of this immoral stinkhole.

Any white in a state allowing concealed carry should obtain a permit and learn to use a pistol. While not looking for trouble (whites as a group are very passive) that is why you should be prepared: trouble will come to you because of the passivity associated with your race. The liberal “society” will not protect you, so you must be prepared to protect yourself and your family against the forces of barbarism.

Sadly, if you view the You Tube videos of the attacks, you will see that most of the whites were passive, and reacted to the racial assault as if the weather had simply changed. This sort of nihilistic behavior is what years of multicultural liberal indoctrination has accomplished.

An armed society is a polite society. Anyone who is not armed these days living in the major cities is an idiot. As a retired Fed I will tell each and every one of you, to hell if you are allowed to ccw, carry anyway.

Drakken on November 24, 2009 at 3:37 pm

If you’re a white guy or Jewish, there is no hate crime. You’re not a politically protected victim.

NormanF on November 24, 2009 at 4:12 pm

In general blacks are pathetic. Margaret Sanger was right. Lets all give a shout out to Obama for keeping the black population at 13%.

GBo on November 24, 2009 at 5:09 pm

USA Today deleted my comment about this on their blog. Their article was about racism against blacks. All I said was that black gang members in Denver were attacking white and Hispanic men. Then I added, Hmmmm I guess they are racist, too. I guess that was a no no.

Perry on November 24, 2009 at 11:29 pm

i can’t believe anybody is really shocked by this. the msm will do anything to cover-up/ not report black on white crime like what happened in tennessee. and that white people are still shocked that black people are doing this. black childern are taught all whites are evil because the only dealing they have with them is when they go to visit their baby daddy in prison where the guards are white. and whats with attacking latinos i guess if you r not black u r fair game.

Reverse racism is not racism. While the motivating factor behind the violence is race, the real target is not white people, but the privilege that white people receive simply for being white. While violence should not be the answer, I rarely see anyone on this blog talking about privilege and instead go into immediate black-hate mode. What are the underlying factors leading to black violence on whites? It has little to do with us actually being white and more with our attitudes on the current state of race in the United States.

As for this being ‘post-racial’, Debbie, you’re completely wrong. The U.S. is not post racial simply for voting in a mixed-race president. Until the white population recognizes its overt, wrongly justified privilege over other races and attempts to correct the inequity, we will never most past this racist state.

Debbie you are FULL OF S**T AND THEN SOME HAG PLEASE!! First off if a woman in America doesn’t look like you then she gets NO attention from the media if she goes missing and or killed second of all you have got to be kidding me!!

Or the woman whose bi-racial daughter was shot and killed by a skinhead asshole or James Byrd or Oscar Grant or Northwestern coach Ricky Byrdsong. Oh wait you must have just missed them yeah they fell victim to that racial violence that according to your little mind somehow DOESN’T exist! Oh by the Debs let me aks you what COLOR were the killers of that family in Conneticut?!! What color is John Gardner the one who raped and murdered Chelsea King?! What color is Jorann vander Sloot or this NEW dirty old pervert who murdered the OTHER white,blond girl in Aruba?!! And you want to talk double standards?!! How about you all celebrating pedophile priests and Roman Polanski while talking shit about Micheal Jackson or wife beating THUGS like Charlie Sheen and Mickey Rourke while attacking Chris Brown. or still being BUTTHURT about Micheal Vick when Ben Rothelisberger is a rapist! But I’m just oh so sure race has NOTHING to do with your attitudes huh Debs?!!
