Racism & the Media: White Mob Viciously Attacks, Nearly Kills Black Siblings and the Media Is Silent

From Bay Area Intifada

Written by Jabar

A plea for support by way of a Facebook post started making its rounds early Wednesday morning. Kristina Fox of Chicago posted a horrifying account with graphic photographs of a vicious beating that nearly killed her and her brother Marcus Fox. The following is the full post from Kristina Fox:

From Kristina Fox:

“On the morning of Saturday, May 30, 2015, my little brother, Marcus Fox, my daughter’s father, Darrius Walton, and myself were sitting in [Chicago/Canaryville’s] Taylor Lauridsen Park conversing with 3 Caucasian people we had just met (Courtney, Kevin, and Jodie). Everyone was having a nice time. Approximately 7-9 more Caucasian people arrived in the park.

My little brother being the social butterfly he is introduced himself and began chatting with the new arrivals. After about 30 minutes, one of the guys out of the group we initially met and another from the group that arrived later got into a verbal altercation with each other.

My little brother tried to calm things down but this soon escalated as everyone began jumping on him. It was at this point things turned for the worse as he and I fought this massive group of Caucasians consisting of both men and women. They were throwing glass bottles, crutches, bricks, and anything else they could find at us. As we continued to fight through this crowd of assailants to get away, more Caucasians came from out of nowhere and joined in brutally attacking us delivering closed fist blows and kicks to our bodies and head.

We began the fight of our lives. This MOB of around 20 Caucasians beat us until we were unable to move and left us laying in the park. My brother & I sustained multiple injuries. I was stabbed eleven times, eight times in the back & right shoulder, twice in the face & once in the head (which the knife was left lodged by one of the perpetrators). My brother was stabbed nine times, along his back, right side with one of the wounds causing him to have a punctured lung.

NO ARRESTS have been made and the only publicity this received was an irresponsibly written 97 word article in the Chicago Sun-Times riddled with incorrect information. If the roles were reversed and had this been a mob of African Americans attacking two Caucasians this would have garnered immediate attention and been plastered EVERYWHERE. We have contacted news stations & have not heard back from anyone. This further proves that America believes- BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER. Please HELP US GET JUSTICE for this hate crime!

Please help us show that OUR BLACK LIVES MATTER!

#‎BlackLivesMatter‬

Please help us share our story.”

Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 2.54.18 AMAt this stage in US history it is hard to be shocked by racial violence or the media’s silence. Had this been a Black mob that beat, kicked and stabbed white siblings, the entire planet would have known about it within 24 hours. There would have been cries for justice from the highest levels of local and national government. National and international media would have been covering the story 24 hours a day — pretending to care.

This vicious attack brings to light much more than the fact that Black people are still under constant threat of racially motivated violence by both law enforcement as well as the general white “American” public. The attack highlights the need for Blacks (as well as Muslims and people of color in general) to move away from mainstream media (MSM) altogether.

In almost every instance of police violence and murders the MSM has initially come out stating verbatim the police departments narrative of events. It isn’t until hours or days later, until eye witness cell phone footage emerges, that we get to see things clearly. Even then, not until these videos are shared amongst friends and family  and then picked up by activists and “citizen journalists” into blogs does the MSM pay any attention.

One could argue that, had it not been for Mike Brown’s friends and neighbors who released photos and accounts of his murder

on social media that the uprising in Ferguson might not have happened. The same can be argued about the rebellion in Baltimore– if Kevin Moore did not film Freddie Gray being beaten and dragged away alive and with a broken leg to a police truck, the majority of people in the US would have never known. In both these situations social media and activist blogs kept us aware of the street battles taking place while offering direct commentary from participants on the ground, not the stale white pundits of the MSM (whose opinions are entirely irrelevant).

[BAI Note: The use of social media and activist blogs in these battles has also led to many critical projects including the formation of Copwatch groups: We Copwatch in Missouri, The Canfield Watchmen in Ferguson, We Copwatch Baltimore, We Copwatch Detroit and so on. ]

There is no use of relying on local, national or international MSM to get stories related to racism and state violence correct. If anything, the MSM is more dependent on street journalists to get their facts correct for them. This became obvious with the latest large scale Israeli aggressions against the Palestinians in Gaza. When the bombs began to drop on civilians in Gaza the MSM reported very little and what little they did report was coming directly from the Israeli’s. It was not until the entire world turned to Twitter and Facebook for accurate information, was the MSM forced to begin reporting in a coherent manner. The same happened in Ferguson. And in both instances once the media was forced to report with facts (and therefore– empathy), did the public turn back to them. Once the MSM had it’s audience back it quickly fell into it’s old ways: equating rocks thrown by rebels in Ferguson with bullets being shot at them by the state, they went right back to reading Israeli state propaganda as actually journalism– equating Hamas rockets with the leveling of entire city blocks by Israeli jets.

If we don’t recognize this pattern by now, we can only blame ourselves.

There’s only two ways to deal with the MSM:

1: Pressure them heavily and consistently to report accurately; which we know will only last momentarily.

Or

2: By beginning the process of destroying them; starting with (but not limited to) strengthening our networks, building our own outlets and never tuning into them again.

  1. I have to say white supremacy still exists, racism etc, it is disgusting for I was not raised to be prejudice, but was made to be aware that racism is in existence and unfortunately will ALWAYS EXIST – no one is better than the other – kids born in this world are taught to be of this – I am disgusted and tired but will not relax – there has to be more UNITY with our people of color – unfortunately a lot of us do not know our own history for the white europeans (and yes I put it in lower case letters on purpose) robbed us of our history – Blacks as a unit need to fight this “BS” going on – we as a whole do not give ourselves the reverence we deserve because we do not totally know who we are – We are Kings and Queens – please let us help each other to avoid such horrific crimes that is happening to us – just like they did back in the day – it never stopped and was never put in the news – because they never thought BLACK LIVES MATTER AND THEY STILL THINK THIS WAY – Get the CD’s Hidden Colors – Learn your history now, and TODAY FOLKS – OR WE WILL NEVER BE ONE!!!!

    • You tell the truth, Marcie. I am white and I taught english in college, esl, diploma classes, ged, and as a substitute in high schools. What I saw there drives the white “privileged” racism very very deep: i saw white teachers constantly correct pronunciations, constantly criticize manners of expression, written and spoken, and in other ways belittle people of color. Black “history” was limited to “slaves” and MLK. No context, no exploration. The poetry of spoken word, hip hop, rap was discarded as irrelevant and not “college quality.” Never mind that most of these teachers couldn’t recognize an iamb if it were written on their eyelids. What was so distressing to me was how the students took all that negativity into their hearts and believed it with their minds: “I can’t do this. I’m not smart. I can’t write.” And those beliefs were begun long before they came to my class; undoing that harm is almost impossible. GOD! What a waste. But it can be done, slowly, with repeated assertions of the value, the priceless worth, of each students’ ideas and words. So the racist view of inferiority is planted early; these incidents water that view. Thank God for technology and its role in revealing truth.

      • Kathryn Hopping, your reply brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for being bold and brave enough to speak up on this. I lived this in school, saw it daily. Thank God I believed in me and knew differently. There need to be change. We all “the human race” cannot keep on living like this. We must value each other. Love is the key to all this. God bless you for choosing not to be one of those people who prevent that we are all crazy for speaking of these facts, “our reality”.

  2. This is truly a sad turn of events. I have tons of white friends so I can’t speak for everyone but, started the altercation? This is the only info left out. Plus I would never see two people being beaten and join in so what really is the Turn of events??!!!!

  3. No arrests.. 20 White Villains did a Horrific Attack on 2 human beings and there was no arrests.. Whats going on in America.. The animals that did this should never see the streets again. Prison life to the Vial Beast that did this…

  4. Truly saddens me but can’t say that I’m surprised you are so correct if it was reversed the world would know about it.

  5. This sudden escalation of hate crimes in America have to be stemmed most probably by forming defence groups in black neighbourhoods, similar to the defunct Black Panther. This has to stop

  6. Please, please let me know what I can do in this situation to help the cause of ” Black Lives Matter “

  7. My question is what happened to the white guys who were arguing at first? Hmm sounds like these two black brother and sister was set up. I hope and fucking pray that those trailer park trash hateful dirty crackers that stabbed the brother and sister. Find death upon them in the worse way. No jail just hope someone or something kills them all in the worse way possible. . SMGDH!

  9. These racist pricks.they picking the right people to do this to because they roll up on the right one they liable to get shot and killed

  10. America needs praying for,So right now if you r reading r have read this pray and pass it on and keepbpraying, for better days.

    • Your right, only the lord can bring the right justice to this family. Jail is to good for the people (Dogs) who comimited this crime. All of america needs prayer and we have needed for a very long time.

      To the family: I’m so very sorry for your loss, may god give you peace. This is not over so stay strong in the lord. He is there for you. God Bless.

    • you’d be surprised how many people have come on here to claim that it wasn’t race motivated even though the attackers were shouting the N word…

      We’re not interested in hearing from that crowd so we delete their posts. – Jabar

  11. This hurts my heart every time I think about what they went through. I personally knows this young lady, and she is beautiful. Now not only only she bares the scars of hatred but have to bare which what came from it.

  12. sometimes life gets the best of us ,if only we can hav a little trust ,a little hope,it seems like the uncaring slave master beats us with clanched fist and a booted foot .

  13. This is absolutely horrific, it sickens me that people are capable of such hate and violence. It’s shameful that there was never any mention of this in the news media. The wounds on these children will heal but the physical and emotional scars will forever stay with them. I am a white woman with a very mixed and diverse family, I could never imagine hurting or discriminating against another simply because of race.

  14. “How long Yahuah until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth !!!?” HALLALUYAHUAH BARAK YAHUSHA malakym ulam any shar shalum.
