Why No National Outcry Over Murder of White Pastor’s Wife?
• Black conservative insists white Americans need to stand up and demand truth from the mainstream media.
By John Friend —
A particularly grisly home invasion and robbery on November 10 resulted in the sexual assault and murder of the pregnant wife of a leading pastor in the Indianapolis area. Amanda Blackburn, 28, was 12 weeks pregnant when she was attacked in her house in the early morning hours.
Local news covered the attack, but there has been no mention in the broader mainstream media. Why is this the case? The answer is obvious. Blackburn was white and the suspects that have been arrested in connection with her rape and murder are young black men.
Larry Taylor, 18, and Jalen Watson, 21, each face multiple felony counts in Marion County, Indiana, where the murder took place. A third man, Diano Gordon, has been named in a probable cause affidavit, but has not yet been charged in Mrs. Blackburn’s murder. If convicted, Taylor and Watson face life in prison and possibly the death penalty.
“People in Indianapolis may be shocked and horrified at this example of black-on-white crime and violence, but they are not surprised,” Colin Flaherty, an award-winning journalist and author of the best-selling book White Girl Bleed a Lot, which documents the widespread epidemic of black-on-white violent crime, explained to AMERICAN FREE PRESS in a recent interview. “Racial violence is part of the DNA of Indianapolis.”
Blackburn’s husband, Davey, left their Indianapolis home about 6 a.m. on the morning of November 10. Police investigators believe the suspects, who are accused of breaking and entering into multiple houses in the Blackburns’ neighborhood that fateful morning, watched him leave. The suspects entered the Blackburn residence shortly after Davey left.
According to local reports, neighbors say they heard gunshots about 6:45 a.m. Police allege the suspects sexually assaulted Mrs. Blackburn and then murdered her in cold blood by shooting her in the back of the head and watching her die.
“Whites are under attack and if they don’t start speaking out things will get worse,” Jesse Lee Peterson, the popular black radio host and author, recently explained to AFP in an exclusive interview.
“Whites need to speak up against these types of crimes and expose the lack of coverage and racial double standards.”
Flaherty is also critical of the way in which the political establishment and mainstream mass media regularly downplay, excuse, or ignore the many examples of black-on-white violent crime, which all too often includes some of the most grizzly and brutal acts of violence, including rape and murder, as in the case of Mrs. Blackburn who was allegedly sexually assaulted before being murdered by her black assailants.
“Another part of this grisly epidemic are the reporters and public officials who ignore, deny, condone, excuse, encourage, and even lie about it,” Flaherty noted. “In Indianapolis, just a few days after the murder, local TV news ran a story about one of the killers and how he was turning his life around.”
While the controlled mass media devotes significant resources, including hours of air time, toward covering high-profile public shootings, such as the shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado recently, as well as any shooting involving a white police officer and a black suspect, black-on-white violent crime rarely makes national headlines.
Mrs. Blackburn’s horrific sexual assault and murder, for example, has not received nearly the amount of national media attention as such a ghastly crime deserves, largely because the suspects are black and the victim is white. Had the races been reversed in this situation, media attention would no doubt be widespread.
“The mainstream media covers up black-on-white crimes and they play up white-on-black crimes, which are rare,” Peterson told AFP. “The reason they do this is to keep alive the lie that blacks are still being victimized and brutalized by white racism.”
While high-profile public shootings and altercations involving white police officers and black suspects are relatively infrequent, black-on-white violent crime can be documented every single day, Flaherty explained.
“Black-on-white violence [is] against cops, women, old people, young people, gay people, handicapped people—you name it,” Flaherty stated. “I post many of these examples on my YouTube channel, along with the denials from the controlled media and cowardly politicians.”
Peterson argues that the black community suffers from “a lack of stable two-parent families and a lack of good fathers in the home,” which is leading to widespread violence, criminality, and degeneracy.
“The black thugs and criminals that are committing crimes are often the product of a bad upbringing and failed parents,” he said. “Most of the high-profile criminal cases involving black males like Michael Brown, Shannon Miles, Jamar Clark, and Laquan McDonald all have one thing in common—these guys all had a terrible home life. They didn’t have a father to guide them and to teach them to overcome evil with good. They were all consumed with hatred for authority—especially white police officers.”
Making matters worse, Peterson contends, is the fact that the organized black community, mass media, and political establishment continue to make excuses for black criminality and violence.
“The violence and dependency in the black community is getting worse because so-called black ‘leaders’ will not address the real problems and they accuse anyone who offers real solutions of being an ‘Uncle Tom’ or of being a ‘racist,’ ” Peterson summarized. “The mainstream media shuts out black conservatives from getting their message out to the masses. And the media and liberal race hustlers have backed whites into a corner by hurling allegations of ‘racism’ against them for telling the truth about race issues. Unless white Americans refuse to be intimidated and begin to tell the truth, violence and race relations will get worse.”
