Another “Beating for Trayvon” Story Buried By Media – Norfolk, VA

I’m sure you’ve heard of “justice for Trayvon.” How about “beatings for Trayvon?” Keep reading. They’re all included here. (All of the ones I’m aware of, that is.)

As much as I’m sure they’d hate to find this out, the media in this country exist to inform the public. When they fail to inform the public, they are derelict in their duties.

The media in this country have been derelict in their duties for several years.

The latest incident of story-suppression is in Norfolk, VA where The Virginian-Pilot, failed to report when two of their very own reporters (who are white) were beaten by a mob of 30 teens (who were black). The beating took place 2 weeks ago. Each of the employees missed a week of work due to the severity of their injuries. It was first “reported” by The Virginian-Pilot on Tuesday, May 1st, 2012 in an opinion-piece in the paper.

The editorial begins:

Wave after wave of young men surged forward to take turns punching and kicking their victim.

The victim’s friend, a young woman, tried to pull him back into his car. Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On her third try, she got through and, hysterical, could scream only their location.

Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton.

It happened four blocks from where they work, here at The Virginian-Pilot.

Two weeks have passed since reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami – friends to me and many others at the newspaper – were attacked on a Saturday night as they drove home from a show at the Attucks Theatre. They had stopped at a red light, in a crowd of at least 100 young people walking on the sidewalk. Rostami locked her car door. Someone threw a rock at her window. Forster got out to confront the rock-thrower, and that’s when the beating began.

 Please read the rest of the editorial HERE.

The paper attempts to provide cover for themselves by stating the following:

The responding officer coded the incident as a simple assault, despite their assertions that at least 30 people had participated in the attack. A reporter making routine checks of police reports would see “simple assault” and, if the names were unfamiliar, would be unlikely to write about it. In this case, editors hesitated to assign a story about their own employees. Would it seem like the paper treated its employees differently from other crime victims?

NO! It would seem like you were REPORTING a story about which you had accurate and relevant information because two of your own REPORTERS were involved!

I think this paper was simply hiding the truth that this beat-down that occurred was related to the Trayvon Martin case.

This next quote from the editorial is why I think that (emphasis mine):

The next day, Forster searched Twitter for mention of the attack.

One post chilled him.

“I feel for the white man who got beat up at the light,” wrote one person.

“I don’t,” wrote another, indicating laughter. “(do it for trayvon martin)”

Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen, died after being shot by a community watch captain with white and Hispanic parents, George Zimmerman, in Florida.

Forster and Rostami, both white, suffered a beating at the hands of a crowd of black teenagers.

Since the Trayvon Martin shooting on February 26th, there has been more than one case suppressed by the media in this country. This was just another story that was buried. It just wasn’t “politically correct” enough to warrant coverage because the perpetrators were black and the victims were white.

We’ve all heard about all of the marches and rallies “for Trayvon”
but, how many of the “beatings for Trayvon” have you heard about?

Here are the cases that I’m aware of:

Case 1: Elderly Man Beaten In Retaliation For Trayvon Martin Shooting

Case 2: Mob beats White man unconscious on his front porch – “Now that’s justice for Trayvon”

Related: The Mayor of Mobile, AL says that the case is “not related to the Trayvon Martin case.”  The sister of the victim, who was present at the beating, says it is. You decide.)

Case 3: White Good Samaritan Attacked by Black Crowd chanting “Trayvon” in Gainesville, FL.

Case 4: Trayvon Martin Protesters Ransack and Rob Walgreens in Florida

Case 5: Sanford Police Cruiser Shot Up In Connection To Trayvon Martin Case

Case 6: Suspect beat teen because he was mad about Trayvon Martin case

That’s the end of the cases that I’m aware of that should be considered “beatings for Trayvon” where blacks have attacked whites in retaliation for Trayvon being killed.

The following case is not related to, but is the exact opposite of the Trayvon Martin case, racially-speaking. Have you heard about it? It is a case from Phoenix, AZ where a black male shot and killed a “white Hispanic” mentally-disabled man by the name of Daniel Adkins.

Whether or not any of the following cases are related to the Trayvon case is unclear. However, all of these “black on white” crimes, some of which WERE racially motivated, have all taken place since Trayvon was killed on February 26th. How many of these have made national news? How many of these have YOU heard about?

1: Elderly Tulsa Couple Vicioulsy Beaten by Black Thugs in Home Invasion
2: Black Mob Beat Up White Man in Racially Motivated Attack near Applebee’s in Seneca, S.C.

4: Man beats McDonald’s manager with baseball bat for not being served – Surveillance Vid with 911 Call

6: Elderly Sisters Fight Off Armed Hispanic Carjacker
7: The video below is a news story about the case that I originally told you about in this article. The title of this video is incorrect. While the pair from The Virginian-Pilot drove up to an intersection where there were around 100 people gathered, they were not attacked by all 100. They estimated that “only” 30 of the people participated in the attack.

Why is it that whenever there is an attack committed by some stupid white person on some person of color, the RACE of ALL the individuals involved IS mentioned?

Why is it that whenever there is an attack committed by some stupid person of ANY color on some white person, the RACE of NONE of the individuals involved IS NOT mentioned?

I’m sick and tired of the lies from the media. While I know their “code,” I shouldn’t have had to figure it out in the first place. If mentioning the race of someone is important in crimes where stupid whites commit crimes against anyone of color, it should be JUST as important when stupid people of color commit crimes against whites. If race is important AT ALL, mention it ALWAYS, media.

When the media buries stories like the ones I included in this post, that means that the very people the media exists to serve are being misled. I’m sick and tired of it.

Good thing God created blogs. Where else do you get the whole story?
