This is a tragic story that came out today, where four thugs in Chicago kidnap a mentally disabled man, steal a car, drive him to a home, keep him for up to 48 hours, beat him, cut his scalp, make him drink from a toilet, and film it live on Facebook for at least 30 minutes.
I only mention the “white” aspect of the man, because that was the central theme of the Facebook live video that the four black thugs made. Continuously citing the man’s race and continuously saying “fuck white people”.
Mark Dice puts this into perspective. If this had been four white people, doing the same thing to a black man, this would have been on the news nightly for months and months. There would no doubt be a “hate crime” charge, and cities would burn all over the nation.
I agree with Mark’s video 100%

I have promoted my concept of “Skins and Punks Everywhere Against Racism” since I was 17.
One thing that motivated me to start this concept, was when I was in Seattle as a young homeless man, and I saw a group of black club goers outside of a club on Seattle’s west side, giving a beer to a old crippled white homeless man.
I was new to Seattle, as I had come from Utah, and I didn’t see anything wrong with this.
They drank with the man, riffed with him a bit. It all appeared so casual. Then they started beating the crap out of him, for what I could see, no good reason. I was about a block away when the beating occurred. I felt pretty helpless. It may not have been the most brave thing that I could have done, but in response and to draw attention to the situation. I started yelling every filthy thing that I could at these people, at the top of my lungs, in hopes to draw the police to the situation or something. When I heard sirens, I continued on with my friend who was with me to our squat on the north side of Seattle.
Even if the white homeless guy had said something terrible, or done something terrible, which I admit I do not know the context of the beating. However, it seemed to me that this guy was reaching 70 years old, or may have already got there. He was clearly frail and disabled, and carrying an old beat up backpack. So I can’t imagine him being a threat to anyone one of those six guys, not yet being any kind of a threat to the group of them. It just seemed racist, hateful and violence, similar to this case that came out in Chicago today.
So that is why I started S.P.E.A.R (Skins and Punks Everywhere Against Racism).
I had known racist skinheads in my life. But I had never really identified with the racist skinhead movement. So to counter all of that I started an anti-racist skinhead movement.
To counter not just white on minority racism, but to also counter ALL racism, like the racism seen today in Chicago with these four black thugs who tortured this mentally disabled white man.
It’s a new year, a new time and possibly one of the most racially divided America’s that I have saw in my life time. I honestly think all of the personal attention that Obama gave to things like the Trayvon Martin case, as well as other cases other cases, and the personal endorsement that Obama gave to thugs and rioters all over the nation, fueled a new fire of division and racism in this country.
Let us not allow this one man’s racism and hatred stir up such animosity and division in our lives. Let’s not let anything stir up hatred. Because the saying is true, “we either stand together, or hang separately”.
