It's On, The Ongoing Saga

From Colin Flaherty:

Some stories you have to read 10 times before deciding: ’Yes: What I thought was too crazy is really true.’

This is one of those stories. Here goes, believe it or not:

A black Baltimore bus driver organized a mob of 20 black people to assault a white family of three on her bus, which they did with gusto and pepper spray. All the while, the other black passengers hooted and hollered in encouragement.

All while the bus driver waited for the beating to finish so the attackers could get back on the bus. With her thanks.

The bus company didn’t give a darnn. And it took Baltimore police two months before they even investigated it....

The Baltimore Sun said this is the second recent example of a bus driver assisting people who assault riders.

The author of "White Girl Bleed A Lot" remains alert to developments in our contemporary race war. Sadly, whites generally remain in denial about the true and horrifying state of affairs, particularly in our larger cities.

It really is on, Gentle Reader. Don't kid yourself -- or leave yourself or your loved ones defenseless.

  1. Sadly, although I'm certain most of us could live side by side (separate but in close proximity) there are always those who desire trouble, who must stir the pot. (pun intended). Most recent poll numbers state that this particular minority are about 13-15% of the population, high concentration in urban clusters and an inordinate amount of media focus make that percentage seem higher. My prayer is that the violence stops before it is responded to in kind. Scripturally, I suppose it gets worse not better; those of us now receiving this "beat down" have the numbers - and quite an arsenal. I've said elsewhere and will say it hear, brother Fran, when it goes loud it will be loud for quite some time.
