Watch this and then read the following article:
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." - Martin Luther King Jr. Race is a touchy subject in America. In fact it's an obsession. When I ended up with this picture (click here) via an e-mail chat group, I was skeptical. After all, I live in Bristol Virginia/Tennessee only 90 miles from Knoxville. This horror story never made it into the local press that I know of. We were drowned out by Anna Nicole Smith banter. If it had been reported, it was certain we would never know the race of the felons, or that at least two of the four are released felons.
But we certainly knew the race of the Duke Lacrosse Players as their names and pictures were splattered all over the media for months. Because my website often tracks and publishes many issues on Bristol Virginia/Tennessee, I did see a growing pattern similar to Knoxville. Only if we see a picture of the criminal (or if they have a Spanish name) do we know their race. Unless it perpetrator is white, the race is never mentioned. Let's look at some facts.
April 18, 2006 New York Times to quote,
The woman, a 27-year-old single mother of two and a student at a nearby university, is black. She was hired to perform as an exotic dancer at an off-campus party held March 13 by members of the team. She said she was attacked by three white players...Forty-six team members submitted DNA samples to the police on March 23 under a court order. Results of those DNA tests were released April 9 by defense lawyers, who said the results failed to link any of the players to the woman. The 47th player, who is black, was not required to submit a sample because the woman said the attackers were white...
Channon Christian and Chris Newsom
In about every publication I googled (with over 1 million hits for "duke lacrosse players") race was constantly brought up, the stripper's name/picture withheld while the players names/photos were everywhere. (I still don't know her name or what she looks like.) As for that lone black player on the team in an interview on ABC News Oct. 31, 2006:
...his three white teammates who have been accused of sexually assaulting a black woman had been stereotyped by class and skin color..."
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." - Martin Luther King Jr.
This case has cost their families over $3 million.
Even on so-called conservative Fox News (March 23rd, 2007) to quote, "The remaining charges against three Duke University lacrosse players originally indicted for rape may be dropped sometime within the next few days..." still refused to name this discredited "stripper" and still refers to her as a "student." Again they emphasize black and white, along with the pictures of the rail-roaded, white lacrosse players.
Update April 12, 2007. I finally saw her picture and got her name from FOX as they were talking to Greta Van Susteren, who made all kinds of excuses to defend her. She said she was too "uneducated" and "unsophisticated" to understand what was going on. The women whom the New York Times admitted works for an escort service, I hope isn't typical of the all black college she claims to attend.
But what the New York Times never said even now, the New York Post did on April 12, 2007:Her name is Crystal Gail Mangum, and she should not escape the world's scorn because she is poor, or because she is black, or because her life circumstances led her to work as a "stripper." Her name is Crystal Gail Mangum, and she does not deserve to lick the underside of the shoes of hardworking and honest people of color and modest means who somehow manage to get through life without attempting to destroy and defile the lives of others. At his press conference yesterday, Attorney General Roy Cooper said something odd about the liar Crystal Gail Mangum. He said she would face no charges for her false accusation.
Another bogger had this to say, "Is race a factor?" in regards to the Knoxville horror:
Still others see a more sinister hand at work. The suspects who have been apprehended for the horrific crime against those two young people are black; the victims were white. Many seem to think that the race of the alleged perpetrators is the issue. Had the perpetrators been white, and the victims black, they say, the case would be all over the television and newspapers. Many cite the much-publicized dragging death of James Byrd, Jr. as an example. Also troubling, according to some, is the contrast between the national media coverage of the alleged Duke rape case and this one. Visitors to the blogs I viewed also cited similarities between this case and the Wichita Massacre, a black-on-white rape/torture/murder in 2000, and other little-known cases as proof of a recent history of "blacking out" certain news stories.
For more see Wichita Massacre To quote:
When blacks commit outrages against whites, media executives not only downplay black misbehavior but believe they must protect whites from "negative stereotypes" about blacks. If they must report such crimes, they are likely to link them to editorials calling for tolerance, and pointing out that the criminals were individuals, not a race. When whites commit outrages against blacks there are no such cautions; white society at large is to blame...The Carr brothers' crimes were treated to a virtual media blackout. The Chicago Tribune and the Washington Times appear to be the only major non-Kansas dailies ever to mention the story. Their articles briefly described the facts of the case, and then focused on Internet discussions among whites who thought the Carr brothers were hate criminals. The Associated Press ran stories on the crimes, but they do not appear to have been picked up outside of Kansas. Within the state, the media dutifully promoted Mrs. Foulston's categorization of the crimes as "random." The networks, of course, were silent. Were it not for the Internet, the Wichita story would have disappeared...
The same goes for this Knoxville story as well. This comment from www.vdare.com from: A Reader In Knoxville, Tennessee:
Here we go again, the depths of depravity are pushed deeper by black hooligans in sleepy Knoxville, TN. First they were just going to carjack, then they decided to abduct and take the couple back to the criminal's house. So they tied them up, beat the boyfriend in front of his girl, shoot him, pour gasoline on him and lit him on fire. They disposed of his body near some railroad tracks. Next, it is her turn as they rape and sodomize her for several days, maybe as many as four black men took part! They pour drain cleaner into her throat to clean up the evidence, wrap her in plastic and throw her into their garbage can outside their house. Except that they didn't know she was alive! She later died from the cold. No mention of the perpetrator's or victim's ancestry is mentioned. Although in Knoxville, their faces are all on the news channels.
February 11, 2007 "(AP) Judge orders federal charges dropped in carjacking, slaying"
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Federal charges have been dropped against three suspects in the fatal carjacking of a young Knoxville couple so prosecutors can concentrate on more serious state counts against them. Prosecutors filed a request to dismiss federal carjacking charges against brothers Lemaricus Davidson, 25, and Letalvis Cobbins, 24, and an accessory charge against George Thomas, 24. Those charges were the first filed against the suspects after their capture in Knoxville and Lebanon, Ky. All three since have been named in a 46-count Knox County indictment charging them with premeditated murder, robbery, kidnapping, rape and...theft in the January deaths of Channon Christian, 21, and her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, 23. The murder counts can carry the death penalty on conviction.
U.S. District Judge Tom Varlan approved on Friday a request by the U.S. Attorney's Office to drop the carjacking charges. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Jennings said at a hearing Thursday before U.S. District Magistrate Judge Bruce Guyton that authorities intended to seek dismissal of federal charges because they believe the suspects should stand trial on the more serious first-degree murder charges. A federal accessory to carjacking charge will remain against Eric Boyd, 34, since he is notcharged in the Knox County indictment. Boyd, who faces trial in federal court in July, could receive up to 15 years if convicted. A fifth suspect, Vanessa Coleman, 18, was named in 40 of the 46 state counts, which include legal variations on some of the same crimes. Coleman, previously identified in court records as a witness, was Cobbins' girlfriend.
There's no mention of any civil rights violations. Again, no mention of race. An angry blogger had this to say: Do you know who James Byrd is? The National media were all over that story, 3 White guys kill a Black man by dragging him from behind a pick up truck. White on Black crime sells. Where was the National media when 4 Black men ( if that is what you want to call them) car-jacked the car Channon & Chris were driving in. But instead of just stealing the car it was fun time in the hood for these subhumans. They took the two to a home and raped and beat both of them. Now ladies think about this; you are held down by a large Black man and he penetrates you and beats you, but not just 1 Black man 4 Black men over a period of 2 days. You are their sex slave and punching bag. Also they force you to drink household cleaners to help hide their DNA. Now how do you think their DNA got into your belly? They force you watch as your boyfriend is gang raped, prison style. Then they shoot him, some say they cut off his male member then set him on fire. Again where is the National media in all this? They are silent when perpetrators are Black and the victims are White. If 4 White men would have done this to a Black man and his girlfriend, wow the National media would have a field day with this. Jessie and Al would have marches and then everyone would say racism played a role.
Jessie and Al have done nothing but raise hell over some minor remarks of Don Imus, a boring talk radio host that said some bad things about the Rutgers ladies basketball team. That cost him his job. That has been in the news and has drowned-out the fact the charges of rape against three white men by a prostitute have been dropped. The end result of this is a growing backlash against all black people because many feel there's a double standard.
News reports (some below) confirm this person's comments. As I monitored the local news in my area where they do often publish pictures, one fact stands out; while non-whites make up about 5% of the region's population, they account for 40% of the crime. This figure was given to me by local police. Of concern as well in the last five years is the explosion of Hispanic crime including in 2007 two attempted child abductions, drug running and gang style shootings, child rape, and kidnapping. In fact one local Hispanic has been sentenced to death for murdering his cell mate. The region is being flooded with illegal aliens as employers refusing to pay a living wage import them by the bus load. See Illegal Aliens in East Tennessee.
On the right: Busted for drugs in Sullivan County.
See Busted that reflects that 40% ratio.
In another case, a local black thug (repeat offender) gunned down (alleged) a white Bristol, Tennessee police officer. No mention of the fact he was black. While race may not have been a motivation here, it's one indication of the high levels of crime among non-whites.
Below are samples of recent crime, much of it centered in the mostly black public housing. The drug busts are across the region. Race is never mentioned in any of them.
- Posted for February 2007:
- Bristol Tennessee Cop Killer goes on trial
- Five suspects arrested in '06 robberies plus 36 more 2007
- Some Tri-Cities pharmacists are arming themselves behind the counter
- Bristol needs straight talk about potential gang problems 2006

- City's (Bristol Virginia) crime index reaches new high Feb 2006
- Former U.S. attorney says region losing war against drugs Feb 2006
- 100 plus nailed for drugs December 2006
In conclusion, the liberal press has a double standard, if not outright denial that race is a factor in crime. If one doesn't believe me, watch the popular program COPS! and notice the color of most of the criminals. No doubt I'll be called a racist for bring this kind of thing up. The truth is not racism! To ignore the truth is injustice!

4th Arrest in Tennessee Couple's Slaying
Jan 12 2007 By DUNCAN MANSFIELD Associated Press Writer
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A fourth person was arrested Friday in connection with the killing of a young man, whose burned corpse was found dumped along railroad tracks, and the death of his date, who was kept alive for days and raped, authorities said. All four suspects were being held on federal charges, Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said. Two were arrested in Knoxville and the other two in Lebanon, Ky. The victims, Christopher Newsom, 23, and Channon Christian, a 21-year- old University of Tennessee student, were last seen Saturday night while on a date.
The two had been at a friend's apartment and had left to get something to eat, with the plan of then going to another friend's home to watch movies. They never arrived. Newsom's body was found the next day. He had been shot and his body set on fire along a rail line, Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Rich Knighten said. His girlfriend's vehicle was found nearby. "The second victim, they kept her for a couple of days and brutally raped and sexually assaulted her," Knighten told The Associated Press in an interview from Louisville. "Then they killed her and dumped her body."
The suspects were arrested Thursday and Friday. Eric DeWayne Boyd, 34, arrested in Knoxville Thursday night, was charged with being an accessory after the fact in a carjacking, DeBusk said. Lemaricus Davidson, 25, arrested at an empty house in Knoxville the same day, was charged with federal counts of carjacking, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and use of a firearm in a crime of violence, DeBusk said. Davidson had been released in August from a Tennessee prison after serving five years for carjacking and aggravated robbery. The other two suspects—George Geovonni Thomas, 27, and Davidson's brother, Letalvis Cobbins, 24—were arrested during in a raid on a house in Lebanon, Ky., about 180 miles north of Knoxville.
Thomas was charged with being an accessory after the fact in a carjacking and Cobbins was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition, DeBusk said. Court papers said Cobbins' fingerprints were found on a firearm magazine containing two rounds of 9mm ammunition. He had been convicted in 2003 in New York state of third-degree attempted robbery. Thomas and Cobbins were to appear before a federal magistrate in Louisville late Friday. Authorities declined to release further information, citing the ongoing investigation.
The victims' families asked for privacy. "The Newsom family has suffered a tremendous and tragic loss because of the apparent murder of their beloved son, Chris," Newsom family attorney James A.H. Bell said. The Christian family thanking the community "for all their prayers and everything that has been done during this time." "We have lost someone who was very beautiful and loving," the family said in a statement. "We are grateful for the outpouring of help that this community has given us and would not be able to get through this without you."

UPDATE: Search warrant reveals disturbing details in fatal carjacking
By: Kay Watson, Reporter WBIR.com 1/26/2007
New records show another woman saw a UT student after she was carjacked, but before she was murdered earlier this month. More details about the deaths of Channon Christian and her boyfriend Chris Newsom were revealed in documents filed in Knox County Sessions court this week. According to a search warrant executed January 24, police have talked with a fifth person who says she witnessed Christian being held.
According to that search warrant, a woman saw Christian alive at the Chipman Street house, and her account of what she saw helped officers target specific evidence. The warrant explains "she witnessed the victim's mouth being cleansed with some type of spray bottle of cleaning supply contained within the residence." On Wednesday, police went back to the house where Christian's body was found inside a garbage can. Records show police seized a spray bottle, empty garbage bags, carpet samples, and the lint trap from a dryer.
The search warrant explained the "Knox County Medical Examiner opined that fibers consistent with the carpet were found in victim Christian's hair." The warrant also said "the woman also witnessed clothing stained of blood and smelling like gasoline being placed in the washing machine of the residence." The medical examiner found Newsom's body had been bound and physically assaulted, then burned using some sort of accelerant.
Meanwhile, Letalvis Cobbins and George Thomas, who were arrested in Kentucky following the deadly carjacking, appeared in a Knoxville courtroom for the first time Thursday. Both the victims' families were in court again, leaning on each other and exchanging hugs. Both Cobbins and Thomas pleaded not guilty, were appointed defense attorneys and waived their rights to request bond. They will remain in jail along with Cobbin's brother Lemaricus Davidson and Eric Boyd. Cobbins and Davidson could face the death penalty if convicted. Thomas could spend more than seven years in prison, if convicted of helping Cobbins and Davidson evade arrest after the carjacking.
The way to reverse the curse of illegal immigration and increasingly militant minorities is for the British and Euro-Israelites to remember our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities and return to our God. When we're back in our proper place, the others will be put back into their proper place - under benevolent white Israelite rule.
