You’d Better Pay the White Tax . . . Or Else; Plus Sharpton Defends Rapists Who Forced Victim to Have Sex w/Her Son!
By Debbie Schlussel
I already thought there was a White Tax–when tax money goes to affirmative action hiring and promotions in government jobs, minority set asides, and other programs that exclusively benefit minorities.
But I was wrong. Apparently, there is another White tax in Orlando Florida. And even White Orlando residents Mickey and Minnie had better pay up, if they want to avoid a beating:
Four men in Orlando were charged with a hate crime after they pummeled a 62-year-old woman and her two mentally-challenged companions at a public park after they didn’t pay a “fee” for being white, police said.
Investigators said the victims were walking into a Kaley Park when they were confronted by Christopher Colbert, Erick Golden, Willie Pritts and Antoniette Boone.
Police said the victims were told that since they are white, they had to pay a fee to be in the park. When the three didn’t pay, the men beat them, officers said. One of the victims was held up with a knife, a police report said.
Contrast those racist thugs with the Black female bloggers who are taking Al Sharpton to task for defending completely subhuman rapists in Palm Beach, who forced their victim to have sex with her own son:
Al Sharpton and the local chapter of the NAACP have gotten themselves into trouble with black women for trying to turn the Dunbar Village rape case into a showpiece of racial injustice.
During the past three weeks, a network of about 30 black women bloggers have been blistering Sharpton and the local NAACP for coddling the black teenagers accused taking a neighborhood woman at gunpoint into her West Palm Beach home, raping her and forcing her to have sex with her own pre-teen son.
Earlier this month, Sharpton stood in front of the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office with local NAACP officials and relatives of the accused Dunbar Village rapists to complain that these teenage boys are victims of racial discrimination.
“Sharpton bills himself as a spokesman for the voiceless,” wrote Tonyaa Weathersbee in BlackAmericaWeb.com “Too bad this time he decided to lend his voice to the ones who needed it the least – and guarantee that more raped black women will continue to suffer in silence.”
Weathersbee and other politically active black women bloggers say Sharpton has ignored the indisputable victims in the Dunbar case – a 35-year-old black woman and her 12-year-old son.
Maude Ford Lee, the president of the West Palm Beach NAACP chapter, spoke alongside Sharpton while the assembled media were handed a flier showing the photos of three of the accused Dunbar Village rapists with the words, “Voiceless, Vulnerable, Victims!!” next to them.
“These children are being unjustly persecuted because of corrupt politics, racism and economics,” the flier said. “The State Attorney’s Office has grossly overcharged these children.”
The gist of the racial discrimination complaint was that the Dunbar teenagers were being held without bond while a group of white teenagers from suburban Boca Raton charged with rape earlier this year were free on bond.
In the suburban Boca Raton case, the teens were accused of getting two neighborhood friends drunk and then raping them while they were too drunk to resist.
“Am I the only one that sees some GLARING DISTINCTIONS in these two cases that have absolutely nothing to do with the race of the defendants or am I missing something?” wrote blogger Arlene Fenton.
Fenton organized a letter-writing campaign against the local NAACP, Sharpton and his National Action Network for using the west Boca case to make victims of the Dunbar Village teenagers.
“It is breathtaking that the National Action Network brain trust can’t seem to comprehend the difference between a home invasion by masked gunmen who torture, rape, sodomize, cut, burn, and beat their victims for THREE HOURS and culminate the event with crime against nature committed against a 12-year-old child … and a case involving NONE of those facts,” Fenton wrote.
This disgusting, reprehensible man–Al Sharpton–is the one whom Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the so-called “conservative” of “The View,” praised. Remember that.
Nauseating. Oh, and by the way, where’s Weird Al Shakedown, er . . . Sharpton, on that “White Tax”? Probably collecting his cut.
Thanks to reader Duane for the tips.
