THE SILENCE IS DEAFENING: Why So Little Reporting on Black-on-White Crime?

Joseph Bankston was only two-years-old when he was executed earlier this month.

Reports say a soldier from Fort Campbell, Tenn. knocked on the family door requesting help. Pretending to need jumper cables for his stalled vehicle, the man gained entry into the house. Once inside he opened fire, fatally shooting the toddler in the head. The child died in this grandmother’s arms just days before his third birthday.

Sketches released by police reveal the shooter was black. The tiny victim was white. Imagine the media firestorm had the races been reversed.

Laylah Petersen was five-years-old and sitting on her grandfather’s lap when loud snaps of gunfire were heard outside their home in Milwaukee, Wisc. Two of the bullets entered the little girl’s head. She died later at the hospital.

Arrested for her homicide earlier this month were three black males.

Police call it a revenge shooting. The men were angry when another man was acquitted of a crime earlier in the day. Twelve casings from two firearms were recovered at the scene.

It turns out that they shot at the wrong house.

Laylah was white. Her alleged killers were black. The national mainstream media failed to report the crime and local media made no mention of the racial dimension.

Had three white men been arrested for the fatal shooting of a five-year-old black girl, the media would be focused on the case for months — if not years — to come. Racism, they would say, is alive and well.

The man convicted of murdering 9-year-old Cassie Lee Kucher requested parole this summer.

Convicted for the murder is a black male who raped the little white girl before taking her life. He also murdered her mother, apparently as the girl watched.

Police say it was the worse crime in the history of Leicester, Mass.

You didn’t hear of this brutal double-homicide because black-on-white crime fails to mesh with the the cultural Marxism narrative that blacks are the perennial victims of white oppression.

12-year-old Jonathan Foster was murdered by a black woman on Christmas Eve, 2010.  Mona Nelson was found guilty of murdering the boy in a drunken rage, torching his body, and dumping it in a ditch.

The crime occurred in Houston, Tex.

Black killers of white children sometimes include the very young.

Michael Connor Verkerke, 9, was stabbed to death at a neighborhood playground by a 12-year-old black boy. Eyewitness reports say Michael was murdered without provocation.

The crime occurred in 2013 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Again, there was no notional media attention.

News reports say that Autumn Pasquale, 12, was killed for her bicycle.

When most children are testing their entrepreneurial mettle with lemonade stands, Autumn’s killer was engaged in selling stolen bicycle parts. He killed the little girl, we are told, to obtain her bike and sell it. A frantic search for Autumn ended when her body was found dumped in trash bin not far from her home. 15-year-old Justin Robinson was sentenced to 15 years for the crime.

Autumn was white. Justin is black.

Blacks attacking white children is not a new phenomenon.

• In 1968 ten-year-old Pamela Powers excused herself to use the restroom at the Des Moines, Iowa YMCA. Pamela’s frozen, half-naked body was later retrieved from a nearby ditch.

A black male and part-time minister left the building carrying a blanket-wrapped bundle which, he told the night watchman, contained a mannequin. A passing teenager later recalled seeing two “skinny white legs” protruding from the bundle. The following day — Christmas — Pamela’s blood-stained clothes were found near a truck stop. The killer surrendered to police.

• 4-year-old Reba Lynn Marie Ryan was killed in September, 2012. Police believe the man who committed the crime is the live-in boyfriend of the little girl’s mother. The 39-year-old black male was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. Reba died after being “whipped,” reports say.

• Jeffrey Curley was smothered to death with a gasoline-soaked rag after being lured into a car by two adult males. They promised Jeffrey, 10, a new bike but, instead, molested him. The boy died when he bravely tried to fight back. Jeffrey’s body was placed in a “cement-filled Rubbermaid container wrapped in duct tape” and dumped in a river. Arrested were Charles Jaynes and Salvatore Sicari. Sicari’s brother, Robert Sicari, was convicted of raping Jeffrey’s playmate, a 10-year-boy, in a garage three weeks before the murder.

Jaynes was later quoted by Channel5 in Massachusetts as saying,  “I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. I would pull him out of the grave and do it again and again.”

The above reports expose the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Untold stories include thousands of white children whose parents were victims of black killers.

Still, we immerse ourselves in shame, not because of our calloused disregard for the safety of our children, but from guilt imposed upon us after viewing movies such as The Green Mile in which a black man is falsely accused of murdering two little white girls.

The Green Mile was fiction; a figment of Steven King’s imagination and embedded in our minds, compliments of Hollywood.

The other stories are real and ongoing. We feel no shame and no guilt. Most are unaware that such crimes are epidemic in our nation, compliments of media bias.
