It's a refreshing change to see a black-on-white crime actually get some airtime. Usually, the MSM buries these crimes. But this incident got such a head of steam going thanks to that Facebook video that even the normally blinkered NY Times couldn't entirely ignore it.
Still, what no one seems to be mentioning is how the incident is so revealing of black attitudes. Brittany Covington laughingly streamed the abuse on Facebook, where she evidently figured that only her friends would see it. And she assumed that her friends, probably all of whom are black, would not object to her behavior. Or, if they did, would at least not turn her in for it. (After all, snitches get stitches.)
This may have been partly due to stupidity on her part, but it was also partly engendered by her knowledge of her friends' attitudes toward whites. (Which most whites tend to be quite naive about.)
The other, larger takeaway is there were four people involved in this abuse. This is a pattern I've noticed time and again. Usually, when a white commits some horrific crime, it's the work of some lone, sick, twisted individual who was abused as a young child. (Think serial killers.)
But when blacks commit a horrific crime, it's often a group of them, just guys who happen to be in the vicinity and see an opportunity. The spirit of the crime is more like, hey, we got one here, let's not let this dude go. And so, like lions spotting a wounded water buffalo, they close in.
Look at the recent beating of that white man in Chicago, ostensibly for having voted for Trump. This wasn't the work of one criminal. It was committed by a group of local blacks, who just happened to be at that intersection, with a girl egging them on.
Think about the knockout game, or, as it is also called, polar bear hunting -- because of the color of the "bear" those feral youths are hunting. Usually it's a young black male showing off to his buddies. In several of the videos I've seen, they all cackle with laughter when the white falls to the ground.
Think of the beating of truck driver Reginald Denny, who just happened to be caught in the middle of the riots in Los Angeles in 1992 and was nearly beaten to death by the black mob. (His skull was fractured in 91 places.)
Brittanee Drexel had been missing for seven years, since 2009; her case was finally solved this past summer. She had been kidnapped from Myrtle Beach, SC, during spring break. Then, according to FBI agent Gerrick Munoz:
Da'Shaun Taylor “showed her off, introduced her to some other friends that were there … they ended up tricking her out with some of their friends, offering her to them and getting a human trafficking situation.” As the media spotlight grew ever brighter on the desperate efforts to find Drexel, the girl was “murdered and disposed of.”
Her body was reportedly dumped in a local pond teeming with alligators.
Drexel's was a particularly gruesome case, and what was striking about it was the fact that so many local men participated.
Or think of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, who were carjacked, raped (yes, Newsom too), tortured, and murdered by five blacks. Christian had bleach poured down her throat while she was still alive, then was wrapped in bags and left to suffocate.
There are far too many such crimes to catalogue here. But the group nature of black crime vs. the solitary nature of white crime is a consistent pattern. This isn't to say, of course, that all blacks turn into violent criminals the moment opportunity presents itself; most blacks are law-abiding. (Think of the blacks who eventually came to Reginald Denny's aid.) But the mere fact that it happens at all, with bystanders frequently willing to join in the festivities, is striking.
The only whites I can think of who have committed a group crime in the past 35 years are the Chicago Rippers, four Satanists who committed 18 murders in the early 80's. (There are undoubtedly other recent examples, but they are rare.) And there have been a few white serial killers who've operated in pairs. But the most reprehensible crimes that whites commit tend to be done by lone sociopaths.
The nature of black group crimes, on the other hand, seems to be more opportunistic: whoever happens to be around, participates.
If you keep an eye on these things, you'll notice the pattern.
