(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.) EDITOR’S NOTE: The links in the following report may contain offensive language.
People who say racial violence is “random” either do not know what the word means, or they are not telling the truth.
The latest “random” attack – that wasn’t random – happened earlier this month in downtown Wilmington, N.C.
Four black people decided they needed some money for marijuana and travel, so they decided to look for a “white person in a good neighborhood (because) they’re bound to have money lying around,” said one of the suspected killers to the Wilmington Star News.
They tried to break into a home but ran away after they discovered someone was there. So they moved to the downtown area, where three of the group followed a woman for several blocks while the fourth trailed in their getaway car.
The woman escaped. And almost, but not quite, dialed 911.
Joshua Proutey was next, sitting nearby in his truck eating a sandwich when this mob found the 20-year-old white college student. They demanded money. He gave them all he had, $10. They took his cell phone.
Then they shot him in the head.
One of the accused, Chris Cromartie, said he wanted money to visit his 3-year old son in New York. Police arrested Cromartie at the Wilmington Coastal Boxing gym.
Cromartie was a “member of the Portia M. Hines Park Project, part of the New Hanover County Blue Ribbon Commission on the Prevention of Youth Violence, and he claimed to be the manager of the gym, a nonprofit club for at-risk youth,” said the Star News.
