Black Conservative commentator Eric Rush addresses this case and the wider topic of the reporting of race issues in America in the following excellent article:
The lighter was a pretext, of course. McClellan was robbed and beaten over the course of several hours, whipped with his own belt, burned with a lit cigarette, doused with a beverage and urinated upon. During the ordeal, the two assailants, members of ethnic minorities, hurled racial epithets at McClellan and taunted him, making it "very clear," as the youth later recounted, that they had attacked him because he was white. One of the assailants was Asian, the other, black.
The WND piece, which also carried my comments, contained several links about the story to local news outlets that cover the Seattle area, but there has not, to date, been one story in the national press regarding the case.
Imagine, if you will, the thermonuclear reaction that would have resulted in the national press had this been a young black man who'd had the same thing done to him by two white men. There is simply no disputing that the story would have been national news for months. The Rev. Al Sharpton (whose claim to fame is having been involved in a case in which just such an occurrence was staged) would have jetted to Seattle within hours, as would Rev. Jesse Jackson. They, as well as dozens of other activists and civil rights organizations would, as I said when interviewed by WND, be screaming for the death penalty.
I also believe it bears mentioning, given the current state of affairs, that one of the assailants bears a Muslim name. Whether or not Ahmed Mohamed, who is black, is a practicing Muslim, it is a fair bet that he has at least had some education in traditional Islamic doctrine; more likely, he has been exposed to Nation of Islam dogma, which is fiercely anti-white.
And speaking of anti-white: Another news story that has cyberspace abuzz is that of the Nation of Islam's clown kahuna Louis Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party attending a secret meeting with Iran's President Mahmoud "the missing link" Ahmadinejad in New York last week. It is a sad state of affairs when the black equivalents of the American Nazi Party and the Ku Klux Klan feel comfortable meeting with one of America's sworn enemies on our own soil.
A sad state indeed …
