Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.
Hayes and a
15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and
pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a
large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets,
The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s
pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times”
in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy
are black; the victim is white.
After being arrested, Hayes told
police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up
because he was white, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman
Tandra Simonton said, citing court records.
Seen anyone talking about how OUTRAGEOUS it is when a "Hate Crime" is committed? Heard anyone yelling about how horrible this guy is or how his family should disown him? Seen any posters from the Klan or Aryan Brotherhood formed like a Bounty Sheet, with a dollar amount on them?
Seen anyone talking about the lack of inter-racial understanding at times like these? Seen anyone say that this was purely and simply racially motivated and how the perps should be under the jail, with no bail or possibility of oxygen?
F*^k no you haven't seen that!
Because not ONE single person with the juice TO get a Press Conference has the NUTS, testes, intestinal fortitude or spinal column strength to say this is JUST as much racism as a white guy beating a black guy, or a yellow guy, or a red guy, or a two-headed purple with green spots and feathers growing in his ears guy!
Everyone is always talking about dialogue and 'truth' in race relations since Zimmerman shot Martin.
Well there is NO truth, and there never will be the possibility of truthful dialogue until everybody, regardless of THEIR own skin color, can admit that people OF their color or ethnicity, can be and sometimes ARE just as racist as George Wallace, Lestor Maddox and David Duke combined!
Here's my final question. Did you even see or hear about this story any
other place? Huh.
Other than my mentioning it, did you see the story
about the three AA, 20 somethings who shot and killed the white guy at Mississippi
State? Huh? Or how they've caught two of them and the third is still loose, and the two they've got won't roll over on the third? Huh.
Personally, I think it's a bunch of crap the way things are now, and I wish I had the ability to call a press conference and point out this incidence of racism and hate. But more so, I'd decry our current Dual Standard System, and I'd point out the people who think we should have a dual standard, so long as THEY can be on top.
