(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.) Videos linked or embedded may contain foul language and violence.
It appears crimes have long shadows, at least several years in some cases.
Seandell Jackson killed Nathan Potter in Milwaukee in 2009. Jackson was a convicted felon who had shot someone a few hours before he shot Potter. For the same reason: Of course it was a robbery, but he told the judge he thought he was “having fun.”
Potter was college student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. By all accounts a gentle soul. A free spirit.
A few hours before Potter’s execution, at least one person dialed 911 to report a couple of sketchy characters lurking around the neighborhood. There had been a robbery there the night before. It was Jackson and his friend. Police never showed.
Jackson and his friend were hunting for victims when they saw Potter leave a bar. They stalked him, accosted him, demanded money and killed him.
After the murder, police wondered if Potter’s “marijuana conviction” from two years before had something to do with it. It did not. But while Milwaukee police pondered what the 21-year old college student did to provoke a couple of thugs, Jackson and his pal were on a bus to Mississippi, courtesy of Jackson’s family.
Jackson’s uncle eventually turned him in. During the questioning, the killer repeatedly referred to his victim as the “little white boy.”
That was no accident, says Marlin Newburn, who just retired from 30 years in the criminal justice system, many as a prison psychologist in Michigan. Black resentment toward whites among criminals is learned at an early age and is the mother’s milk of many, many convicts, he said.
“After at least two generations (now) of black people being immersed in resentment politics administered by their race-hustling idols, they have become the creatures they claim to despise,” said Newburn. “That’s the primary toxic by-product of harboring a resentment, and the young psychopath’s remorselessly labeling his victim a ‘little white boy’ demonstrates this predictable result.
“The MSM’s viewpoint is that black people need their ongoing protection due to ancestral suffering inflicted at the hands of non-black people. This is pre-adolescent, lazy, and enabling logic that perpetuates the misery, but the mainstream reporter apparently gets the wonderful feeling they’re helping an imaginary downtrodden race.
“Another result in sustaining and then nurturing resentments is that the carrier begins rationalizing like a common, habitual felon in that they speak and act on emotions instead of rational thought. This then carries over into nearly every other aspect of their daily lives since they’ve become conditioned to believe they’re not responsible for anything. Can’t read? It’s the school’s fault. No jobs? It’s not because they have no skills, discipline, or sense of responsibility. It’s because someone won’t just give them one.
“In short, criminals like Seandell believe themselves to be officially exempt from any failures or setbacks in their lives. Their handlers in the media and those with the title of ‘reverend’ told them so. The resentment and chronic failure continue due to these disastrous fantasies.”
But how racial resentment may have played into this crime was not reported in the local press. Nor was it brought up at trial.
It wasn’t much of a trial anyway. After the conviction, Jackson turned to Potter’s family and mocked them, scorned them, and cursed at them. His friend’s family did the same as the victim’s family sat in shock. Not once. Many times.
At sentencing a few months later, it was a repeat: Jackson tried to turn to Potter’s family, but he was restrained by deputies as his family wailed and cursed and berated Potter’s family. All on video.
“We hate you,” said a member of the killer’s family to Potter’s family. Potter’s brother is autistic, and now insists that every light in his house be on all the time. And he also wants all the windows removed.
The court-room revictimization of the families happens often, and is documented in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”
The court-room scene was so ugly, even years after the sentencing, it still gets attention. In February 2014, syndicated radio host Doug Banks posted a news report that purportedly showed Jackson crying during the sentencing.
But lots of people said Jackson was not crying: He was dropping F-bombs on the judge as deputies wrestled him to the floor. It was his family making all the noise about how they were going to miss him and how unfair it was.
Pretty crazy right?
No, the crazy starts now: In the comments section of the syndicated “urban” radio host Banks’ website, some of his listeners were happy that Jackson will never be released from prison. But others had a more curious reaction, along racial lines:
- Cheree Y. Holley saw unfairness: “What about treyvon martin parents? What about them? mister zimmermen still stands by his word that he he was defended himself, i don’t condone what this man has done, will the martins ever get their justice for their son just like these parents did for theirs?”
- Alice Tiller reminded everyone “of course black man kills a white he gets life zimmer killed a black kid nothing.”
- Keith Mcdonald found wisdom in the words of Alice Tiller: “The inequity of the judicial system when it comes to black men is apparent. We did not invent the race card and ignoring the racist society that we live in will not help us. I agree that the young killer should be in jail for life. He had a chance in court to show remorse but he acted like a sociopath. But I agree with Alice Tiller … when a white man kills a black men there are tons of excuses.”
- Selento Rockett found the underlying cause: Jackson really wanted a job. But they would not let him have one. Whoever they was: “What was going on in that boy’s life that he felt the need to get a gun, go rob and shoot somebody? When there are no jobs (and black males are in the lead for being unemployed) and no education to compete for a job, the only other alternative is either to join the military or become an entrepreneur at something. What’s the popular occupations in low income black communities across this country? Drugs, guns (unregistered), fastfood, and sex. They are killing us slowly and turning us back to slaves.”
- Finally, Demond James puts in all in perspective: “life for killing a white man, while a white man who killed an unarmed black teen in Florida gets off! Hell no!”
This week, the New York Times and NPR are leading a pack of national journalists to Florida to cover the trial of a black man, Jordan Davis, killed by a white man, Michael Dunn. They say it has similarities to the case of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.
The national black weekly magazine Jet made it a January cover story: “Is Your Child Next?”
Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”
