Steve Utash: Pray for Comatose Victim of Racist Black Detroit Mob

By Debbie Schlussel

As you begin your weekend, please pray for the recovery of Steve Utash, the White victim of the racist Black Detroit mob, about whom I told you yesterday. Utash, a working-class tree trimmer, is the man who found himself in the unfortunate situation of accidentally hitting a 10-year-old Black kid, who darted into the middle of a street and into oncoming traffic in Detroit.


Utash, as I told you, did the morally right (and legally required) thing by pulling over to see if the kid was okay and trying to help him. And, as a result, he was subject to a severely brutal beating at the hands of 10-20 Black men, who nearly killed him. Utash has been in a coma in the hospital since then–and could die, while the kid has knee abrasions and a swollen lip. There’s a lesson in this for anyone driving in an urban Black neighborhood. Just keep driving and call the police from your cellphone. Otherwise, you could end up in the same place as Utash. You could choose to be liberal and ignore all of this and have an “open” mind, but you might also end up with an open (cracked open) head.

Clearly, Utash is a good guy. He could have sped off, but wanted to check on the welfare of this kid who just ran into the middle of traffic and whose parents were nowhere to be seen. And for that, Utash may have given his life. Let’s hope not. Put this kind man in your prayers and say a prayer for his recovery.

Steve Utash, a tree trimmer from Roseville, is a good guy, the kind who cares about others and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it, his daughter says. Thursday night, his family was keeping vigil at St. John Hospital and Medical Center, where he was unconscious and clinging to life after being beaten by a group of men on Detroit’s east side Wednesday. The attack happened after his pickup truck hit 10-year-old David Harris, who stepped off a curb into its path. His daughter, Felicia Utash, said that after he was beaten, he was robbed of his money, his wallet and his credit cards.

Utash, 20, said her family is devastated. “What happened to my dad is a shame,” she said via a Facebook message. “He was doing the right thing like he always does. He’s a tree trimmer for a living and makes sure all the squirrels were out of a tree before he cut it down,” Utash said. “He’s an amazing dad and person. He’s very loved, and those kids should be ashamed.”

She said her father suffered multiple head injuries and still had not regained consciousness Thursday night. He doesn’t have health insurance, and the family plans to set up a fund-raiser to cover his hospital bill.

I will publish donation info here as soon as it is available.

At a Thursday news conference, Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said Steve Utash “is still in critical condition, and it’s really not looking all that good.” . . . According to Felicia Utash, her father was on his way home from work in his company’s pickup when the accident happened. Steve Utash got out to check on him and attempted to render aid at about 4:10 p.m. near Morang and Balfour. A large group of men quickly gathered and began beating Utash, according to Woody.

Police have said they don’t believe Utash was speeding or broke any traffic laws. Woody said that the preliminary investigation indicates the boy stepped in front of the pickup. The child’s relatives insist that none of them touched Utash. Duston and the boy’s uncle, 29-year-old Desmond Key, said they heard people saying the driver tried to flee when he was beaten, but they didn’t see anything to indicate that he was trying to run away.

Yes, he pulled over and got out of his truck, but he “was trying to flee.” Keep on lyin’, racists. If he were trying to flee, he’d have sped up and kept on driving.

“We don’t know who they are,” Key said of the people who beat Utash. Police arrested the child’s father on an unrelated warrant and are questioning him about what he knows in regard to the assault, Woody said. “Whether or not he was actually involved in the assault, that still has yet to be determined,” Woody said. . . . Felicia Utash said the family will announce a fund-raiser in the coming days to help cover her father’s bills.

“He doesn’t deserve to have (medical bills) hanging over his head forever,” she said. “This isn’t fair by any means. It hurts me to know how much pain he’s in, and there’s nothing I can do about it but sit here with my sister and hope for the best.”

Again, say a prayer for this poor man. May G-d bless him and help him recover.

Thanks for publicizing this Debbie. I pray he recovers. Other than that, I am speechless.

Have President Obama and Attorney General Holder expressed their concern yet? Obama especially, as he has been in the area?

Little Al on April 4, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    I sure hope they have expressed their concern. Seems to me they were all over the Trayvon Martin case.

    Ya know what I mean?

    Yup, and not only that Revs. Al and Jessie are beginning their crusade against this cowardly act as we speak!

    Treyvon's Ghost on April 7, 2014 at 9:10 pm

This is a sad tragedy and to the fools who did this I say:

NIGGAS who behave in an unsavory manner have nothing to do with serious, forward looking Black people. Nothing whatsoever. They are unworthy of our defense until such time as they seek to improve themselves and graduate from being NIGGAS to being full-fledged Black people.

Some Blacks feel the need to defend them because the media often paints all Black people with one brush. “Racist Black Detroit Mob” The implication is that we are a monolith, so it can appear necessary to defend each accusation.

BUAN exists to establish the distinction between Black people and NIGGAS and to dismiss all NIGGAS from the Black race. They are no longer part of us and must fend for themselves. B.U.A.N. is comprised of Black people who have library cards and believe learning, education, good manners and being a good neighbor are positive qualities. We no longer care about NiGGAS who seek to bring us down. We have no wish to become white, but do wish to distinguish ourselves from anyone (of any ethnicity, for that matter) who regularly engages in thoughtless, antisocial, destructive, intimidating, counterproductive behavior!

May Steve recover perfectly!

Big D on April 4, 2014 at 7:34 pm

I do pray that Steve recovers, and that his family is not deprived of his presence.

Worry on April 4, 2014 at 7:54 pm

Let’s all pray he recovers both physically and financially. Thank You Debbie for posting this, i hope all us readers can help this good man.

Detroit Joe from FLA on April 4, 2014 at 8:24 pm

My heart hurts for this man & his family and I will/have definitely pray(ed). My head hurts from thinking about this garbage going on all the time and media outlets not stating race and THAT’S RACIST! They better get these guys (and you know the family knows who’s in on it…all the high fives, raised fists and knowing nods going out to them, I’m sure) and they better charge them with what it is… Hate Crime. All of those criminals coulda been O’s sons. He opened his yap on the T. Martin case immediately, he opened his yap on Prof Gates without knowledge…whats he got to say about this?
Please do let us know about the fund as soon as you find out. I will definitely chip in. This whole thing is outrageous and criminal!

Can you say . . .

Reginald Denny?

Meanwhile, back at the ranch. Or should I say 1 Police Plaza, NYC. Yesterday, Sharpie Sharpton, who looks as though he is battling Paulina Gretzky to see who can die from starvation first, attended a meeting about unfair targeting of black shoppers in upscale department stores. Just in case any of you were wondering where the great black “leaders” were.

And speaking of REAL great black leaders, Dr. King, who was assassinated 46 years ago today, is spinning at 30,000 RPM in his grave.

Special vote of thanks and the blessings of The Lord Jesus Christ to BigD, his household and all of B.U.A.N., for his wisdom and words here.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on April 4, 2014 at 9:40 pm

    I’ll say this for Big D: he doesn’t pander to black anti-Semites just because they happen to agree with him on racial matters.

    skzion on April 6, 2014 at 3:14 pm

      (And yes. I was indeed comparing him to certain other participants here.)

      skzion on April 7, 2014 at 12:18 am

I’m not a religious man, and you folks know my views on organized-religion (that’s for a future time, not now), I’ll show both, condolences and prayers for Mr. Utash, and I hope the authorities in Detroit track down his attackers, arrest them and have them prosecuted in a court of law.

So those mob of guys had nothing better to do than physically attack Steve Utash, because he accidently ran down an 11 year old boy, and he got out of his truck to check on the physical condition of the kid (as Debbie said, he did the ethical thing of seeing the boy’s condition)? Cognitive dissonance continues to rear it’s ignorant head!

Sean R. on April 4, 2014 at 10:20 pm

nationally, this is a big deal, Obama’s silence is deafening, does he have the same mentality as that black racist mob? Isnt it time for a Million WHITE Man March onto Washington?

HK on April 4, 2014 at 11:59 pm

Anyone who thinks this story is rare, should immediately read
Colin Flaherty’s White Girl Bleed a Lot. It is a scathing, infuriating indictment of a totally corrupt mainstream media,
who hides everything on this subject,and a black leadership that encourages hate and excuses brutality. Finally, the author exposes the shocking fact that at least half of violent crime in this nation goes unreported and/or unrecorded.

Nicole on April 5, 2014 at 12:25 am

    We know it’s not rare. Hence the pissed offedness.

    Laura S. on April 5, 2014 at 8:29 am

If this were a white mob beating a black man, you can be sure Al Sharpton and the rest of that rotten “civil rights” bunch would be on the first place to Detroit to denounce this “racist” country. This decent man did the right thing, morally and legally, and this is his reward.

This attack underscores the way most blacks are, I’m afraid. Yes, there are exceptions. And I’ve known a few personally. But it has been my experience that most blacks are hair-trigger tempered, and possess very little impulse control or empathy.

Rocker on April 5, 2014 at 1:08 am

A dozen men (or kids) beat the hell out of this poor man and not one single person in the area recognizes any of them? Give me a break. Everyone who participated or witnessed this beating is either a coward, stupid, or both.

Lars on April 5, 2014 at 9:10 am

Let’s see how many people in the media correctly refer to this as a lynching death.

other on April 5, 2014 at 9:29 am

Where are all the Hollywood types, posing in selfies with a dark baseball cap saying “We are all Steve Utash”? Oh sorry, a working class white guy who gets beaten into for doing the right thing isn’t fashionable.

Sean M on April 5, 2014 at 10:32 am

He is in our prayers! Thanks Debbie for this and future info re: this man and the pursuit of his attackers.

Lighthorseman on April 5, 2014 at 11:00 am

We will need the National Guard in Detroit in the end run before this is all over. This time we need to take care of what we did not in 67′

Jonathan Gartner on April 5, 2014 at 1:00 pm

Not surprisingly, FOX News,our alleged news network on our side, is making NO mention of this ,on any of the news-talk shows.Another PolitiKally InKorreKt story that will be burned in the Memory Hole>

CharlesMartel on April 5, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    Bill O’Reilly is covering this story on his show tomorrow night (Monday).

    Carol on April 6, 2014 at 10:41 pm

@ Rocker, you are a dumb fool. “Underscores the way Most Blacks are” leave the basement for 2 minutes and come up for fresh air.
This isn’t Mike Metzger dot com, kid you are a complete ignoramus to say such things.

Big D on April 5, 2014 at 6:42 pm

It sounds like Obama has a LOT of sons in Detroit.

halevi on April 5, 2014 at 10:37 pm

Just stumbled across this blog. Please stop spreading bigotry. You are worse than a KKK member,Stalin, or Hitler.

Steve Owens on April 6, 2014 at 12:02 am

    Mr. Owens, perhaps you need new glasses to avoid such stumbling in the future. Scram, yah moron.

    skzion on April 6, 2014 at 12:18 pm

I certainly hope the police will track down all those bastards and charge them with attempted murder. The family should sue all of them as well.

Disgusting – where’s the MSM shrieking about this horrendous crime by these savages?

Nonbeliever on April 6, 2014 at 5:56 pm

    Murder & Hate crime! Hate crime adds a much stiffer sentence. Were the situation reversed it would definitely be a hate crime.

    Laura S. on April 7, 2014 at 8:18 am


I remember your writing that declaring bankruptcy wouldn’t rescue Detroit. If I was hesitant to agree back then, I sure see where you’re coming from now. Detroit can’t recover as a segregated (blacks only) city.

I’m surprised that nobody has brought up the Trayvon Martin shooting. Where is the Federal investigation? Where is the national news media? Where is Governor Snyder and our Attorney General? Don’t they realize that there is an imperative need to catch the people who did this and bring them to justice? Don’t they realize that Detroit can’t recover if mob rule persists?

This is an outrage and I think one of the best ways to express our outrage is to donate to Steve Utash’s medical recovery fund.

Thanks for keeping us informed on this story.

Look What All The Degenerate Low Life Niqqas Did To Detroit! How About A Big Round Of A Applause Here For All The Niqqas! Detroit Is A Bankrupt Dying City! They Killed It! It’s Dead!

DeadNiqqerStorage on April 6, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    If you want to say “nigger,” why hide it? Scared?

    Blacks are not the only cause of Detroit’s demise. Unions and sleazy corporate types who pandered to unions by getting the government to restrict foreign autos are even more important. Drive out the well paid employees and you’re making room for dysfunctional blacks and Hispanics.

    skzion on April 7, 2014 at 12:16 am

Bill O’Reilly will be covering this story on his show tomorrow (Monday) night.

Carol on April 6, 2014 at 11:44 pm

The solution to Detroit is to put a wall around it and allow the inhabitants to devour each other. Within a month or so there will be nobody alive within the walls. When that happens, we can send in the bulldozers to knock everything down and start over.

Jeff on April 7, 2014 at 12:34 am

    That is precisely what I said to my husband yesterday. Put a huge wall around it with no gates and let them have at it.
    Escape from Detroit.

    Laura S. on April 7, 2014 at 8:23 am

The guys kids were just on fox and this is the website they set up for donations. His care is costing about $20,000.00 per day so.. anyone that’s able… please do. I’m sure Debbie will be making a post on it soon.

Laura S. on April 7, 2014 at 8:36 am

Where is Rev.Al Sharpton?

H.S.Cohen on April 7, 2014 at 6:08 pm

Detroit, Mich=====Urban Terrorists. Nothing but a bunch of feral animals living off of the taxpayers. May Steve, get well, and make a full recovery. I cant believe how well his kids acted when interviewed. I would have had many many many, choice words, for this pure trash. I too, hope they find and fry the bastards who did this. And then, steal the guys wallet and robs him?? So impressive. Cant wait to have this kind of animal farm mentality for a neighbor or a co worker.

Pray for this guy. One Black preacher condemned this act.
