Following an Atlanta shooting spree, the man who murdered one woman and paralyzed another testified at his trial that he was motivated by beliefs he had acquired about white people at the University of West Georgia.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Nkosi Thandiwe, 23, argued during the trial that the political views he acquired in college, led to a mental state that should be grounds for a defense of temporary insanity.
“I was trying to prove a point that Europeans had colonized the world, and as a result of that, we see a lot of evil today,” Thandiwe testified. “In terms of slavery, it was something that needed to be answered for. I was trying to spread the message of making white people mend.”
Thandiwe told the court that he had attended an event about racial inequality the night before his shooting spree, and he became furious.
“I was upset,” Thandiwe said. “I was still upset Friday. I took the gun to work because I was still upset from Thursday night.”
Thandiwe’s novel defense ultimately did not succeed. He was found guilty of killing 26-year-old Brittney Watts and paralyzing Lauren Garcia, then 24. He also injured Tiffany Ferenczy. The judge sentenced Thandiwe to life without parole plus 65 years in prison.
Years later, these sorts of attacks driven by anti-white hatred in academia and media are happening much more often today as the rhetoric ramps up.
Recently, a 39-year-old black man who was accused of shooting and wounding five people in Alabama and Georgia told police his assaults were racially motivated, and he was targeting white men specifically.
Last year the NYPD arrested a black man for committing random hate attacks against white people. The man later confessed that he wanted to “kill all white people,” following his murder spree that resulted in the killing of 6 White people.
Last year, Kori Ali Muhammad confessed the motivation behind his mortally wounding of three white males during a targeted shooting spree in Fresno, California. Muhammad told officials that ‘he wanted to kill white men.’
According to his social media posts, Muhammad expressed a strong dislike toward “white people” as well as government officials. He made reference to “a race war against whites,” the evils of “white devils” and being a “black soldier.”
Hundreds of Black Americans praised his actions on social media following reporting of his attacks.
In 2017, Emanuel K. Samson targeted a white church with the goal of killing white churchgoers. The black man suspected in the 2017 mass shooting at the Antioch church, went there “with the intent to murder a minimum of 10 white churchgoers.”
Deputy District Attorney Amy Hunter said he left a note on the dashboard of his vehicle explaining his frustration about reports of white nationalist attacks and outlined his plans to retaliate.
The note said “Dylann Roof is less than nothing,” and referenced “the blood that 10 of your kind will shed … in terms of vengeance,” according to portions Hunter read out loud in court.
Police say Samson fatally shot Melanie Crow as she was walking through the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ parking lot after Sunday service, and then shot and injured several others.
Various black nationalists have also been emboldened by this sort of rhetoric, especially when it comes to the statistically false narrative of the Black Lives Matter movement. There are countless examples that the national media chooses not to cover widely, but here are just a few:
- Micah Xavier Johnson, who killed five police officers in Dallas, was increasingly drawn to black nationalist ideology and attended several meetings of the People’s New Black Panther Party.
- Gavin Eugene Long, who killed three officers in Baton Rouge, said he belonged to the Washitaw Nation, an obscure black nationalist group that claims ownership to the huge swath of the United States obtained in the Louisiana Purchase on the belief that they are descended from a U.S. indigenous group.
These cases come at a time when anti-white sentiments in America have risen exponentially, and coverage of these stories by news outlets is sparse.
Many experts claim that there is a clear connection between the anti-white curriculum being taught in public schools across the nation and being spread by every institution, and the recent surge in black-on-white attacks and murders.
One of the more recent examples is a story about a man in Spring Texas who was viciously beaten by a group of black teens at the Exxon convenience store in Harris County. One man shouted ‘black lives matter,’ while kicking him in the face during the horrendous attack.
Only a couple of local news outlets picked the story up.
Last August, an unhinged Black man committed as many as seven separate attacks on white pedestrians in Manhattan, calling one of his victims an “f—ing honky,” according to authorities.
The creep attacked three people in a matter of hours. He slugged a 64-year-old woman in the neck and shoulder with a wooden stick as she walked on Greenwich Avenue near Eighth Avenue. About an hour later, he hit a 20-year-old woman in the back of the head with a brick on Wooster Street near Canal Street.
Last July police arrested a 17-year-old who authorities say was in a group of teenagers caught on surveillance video beating and stomping a white man at the entrance to the Washington Hilton hotel near Dupont Circle.
The police report says as many as 10 male and female teenagers as young as 13 participated in the attack in the circular driveway of the hotel. A police spokesman put the number of youths at up to 14.
The national media tends to cherry-pick less than 10% of stories regarding interracial crime and represent it as the majority – while completely ignoring the legitimate statistical majority of interracial assaults.
Here are a few more examples:
- The story of Emmanuel Aranda, who threw a five-year-old white child over a balcony in Minnesota.
- The story of Dominique Lang, who shot a white baby in the face for the fun of it while attempting to rob his mother.
- The story of Cadesha Michelle Bishop, who was arrested for the murder of an elderly white man, after she pushed the seventy-four-year-old to his death on the bus.
- The story of Cannon Hinnant, the 5-year-old boy who was shot in the head while riding his bike by a black man outside his father’s home in Wilson, North Carolina.
All of these stories received a less than 1% of the media attention the Nia Wilson story received.
Hate Crime and Hate Groups
The national media often fails to mention that black Americans are vastly overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes—by 50 percent—according to recent Justice Department data. White Americans are underrepresented by 24 percent. It also doesn’t appear to matter which year we look at in regards to hate crimes, as the below results are fairly consistent.
Additionally, black Americans commit hate crimes at a rate that is three times higher than Whites per 100,000 according to FBI crime data from 2016 and 2017. All of this data is available, and yet the numerous congressional hearings on “white nationalism” may have made many Americans believe otherwise.
Black Americans are also more than twice as likely to be in a hate group than white Americans, according to the SPLC’s own data.
Recently, a California woman who simply wrongly accused a black teen of taking her phone at a New York City hotel late last year was charged with a hate crime. If black Americans were held to the same standards white Americans are when it comes to being charged with a hate crime, this gap in hate crimes per capita would be much larger.
Statistics of Interracial Attacks Between Blacks and Whites
Data show white Americans are far more often victims of interracial crime than black Americans. In 2018, The Bureau of Justice Statistics released their survey of criminal victimization, breaking down 593,598 interracial violence between blacks and whites. Black Americans committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies or 90 percent, and white Americans committed 56,394 of them or less than 10 percent.
In 2012-13, then-President Obama’s DOJ recorded that black Americans committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; white Americans only committed 15 percent.
Furthermore, despite making up only 13.4% of the American population, black Americans commit more than double the amount of interracial homicides on white Americans, who make up 60.4% of the American population.
