    Here we go: another "hate crime" centerpiece by the MSM thought police. A white southern man allegedly attacks a black woman after she spits on him. The article, complete with slideshow of attacker and victim (a special treat that wouldn't exist ifraces were reversed), is biased to the nth degree and hints atour even more ominous future: the FBI is involved now to see whether a civil rights violation has occurred. It's good to see that out Federal Poilce are being put to good measure against the white man.

    Troy Dale West Jr., of Poulan, Georgia, is facing charges including misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct after allegedly beating Army reservist Tashawnea Hill, 35, after the two had words at the entrance of the Morrow, Georgia, restaurant the evening of September 9.
    Hill, an African-American, told police that West, 47, yelled racial epithets at her as the attack took place.
    Police said witnesses confirmed her account.
    The FBI has "initiated an investigation in the matter to determine if a civil rights violation occurred," the agency said in a statement.
    Because the alleged incident happened in full view of Hill's 7-year-old daughter, the Clayton County district attorney's office added a felony charge of cruelty to children.
    "[The woman's daughter] was visibly upset the night of the attack," according to Capt. James Callaway of the Morrow Police Department, who said he was on the scene shortly after the alleged attack.
    A police report of the incident said Hill's daughter was "crying uncontrollably and her body [was] shaking/trembling" from witnessing the attack.
    Hill told police the incident started when she and her daughter were entering the restaurant at the same time West and his wife were exiting.
    "The man slung open the door pretty hard and fast and I had to push my daughter out of the way," Hill told CNN affiliate WSB-TV. "I turned to the man and I just said, 'Excuse me sir, you need to watch yourself; you almost hit my daughter in the face.' And from there it just went downhill," Hill said.
    West, according to the police report, admitted striking Hill "after she spit on me and accused me of trying to hit her daughter with a door." The police report says Hill denied spitting on West.
    Police say Hill stated that "West punched her in the left cheek, forehead, kicked her body in several places, and punched her head in many areas several times."
    The Cracker Barrel's manager told police he stepped between West and Hill to stop the alleged assault.
    Cracker Barrel spokeswoman Julie Davis said Wednesday that the restaurant was cooperating fully in the police investigation.
    "It's just terrible when something like this happens anywhere, let alone in one of our stores," Davis said. "It's worth noting that Cracker Barrel employees did their best to assist Hill as soon as they became aware of the situation."
    CNN's efforts to reach West at his home and business were unsuccessful. Police say they had no indication West had an attorney. He is free on bond awaiting a hearing in the incident, the Clayton County jail said.
    Hill was treated at a hospital and released.
    The Clayton County district attorney has forwarded surveillance video of the incident to the FBI.

    Even though I'm sure the negress spat on him/chimped out, the guy over-reacted. I would never punch a woman unless she was trying to (or did) seriously hurt my Kids, Wife or Mom. ***HOWEVER, this whole ordeal would be a non-event had the races been switched. No way does the FBI & MSM get involved if a brutha punches a White woman. Classic cultural marxist double-standard.[​IMG] Edited by: DixieDestroyer

    I agree 100% with what DD said. The guy acted inappropriately. Another note is that any time a black makes an accusation against a white, they claim "racial epithats where made." In the mind of many blacks, and many whites as well, a white person making a racial epithat gives blacks the permission to overreact in any way they like. Also, it said witnesses comfirmed the racial remarks. I'm sure this restaurant had many black patrons, as it is in majority black suburb Clayton County. I'm surprised the man was not charged with hate crimes, because blacks have nearly all of the important positions in Clayton from the board of commissioners to the state's attorney.

    This guy sounds like the type of guy that gives all of us a bad name. He's not a kid either. He should know better.

    Unless the video shows a vastly different scene than the one being reported, it's over for this guy and I can't say that I have much sympathy for him either.

    Note that this story comes hot on the heels of a week of record TNB. The word obviously went out from zion: "find a minor story of White wrong-doing and blow it out of all proportion."

    I can't say wheter the guy made racial slurs or not but blacks tend to lie in cases like this. Anytime they feel disrespected by a white they will play the race card. They want whitey to be charged with a hate crime and get the maximum penalty. If the patrons were mostly blacks like was mentioned I wouldn't be surprised if they lied as well.

    No doubt they lie and pull the ol' trusty race card. However, if there's video of this guy punching a woman (even if she spat at him, cursed him ,etc.)...his goose is cooked. Yet, the MSM vermin will make "major" news of this small story. You can be a man & not "take crap", without punching women (even if it's one giving TNB).

    If they prove it was a hate crime this guy will do serious time. I am talking about several years at the bare minumum. The statistics I read however say that blacks are charged with hate crimes more than whites. I don't buy that for a second.

    There was a situation in the next town over that involved blacks and whites. Two Polish kids cam out of a bar and there was a black guy leaning up against their car and wouldn't move. One kid kicked him and the guy fell backwards and cracked his skull and died. The girlfriend of the victim played the race card and said it was racial. So of course the police looked at it as a hate crime. After this happened people were telling me that large groups of blacks were coming into town and jumping any Polish kids they saw coming out of bars. This was never mentioned in the paper though. Surprise Surprise!!Edited by: whiteathlete33

    Hey, can you blame the guy? I'd be in a bad mood too if I had to eat the corporate faux hometown swill they serve at the Cracker Barrel.

    This is a hate crime but multiple blacks beating a white kid on a bus while the rest cheered is not a hate crime. Cool.

    Any bets on whether the black kids yelled racial slurs on the bus?

    The FBI has 31,244 employees. So they need to be kept busy doing something. 'Jones, there's been a possible hate crime near Atlanta. You and Sanchez check it out.' 'Right boss. Com'n Sanchez, we've got some investigating to do.' Cue music. Run opening credits sequence with video of FBI agents climbing a tree to save a cat, working as a crossing guard, checking I.D. at a library.

    Following five minute commercial break (The Scooter Store, Easy Glide Tampons, Applebee's, Macy's) we see our intrepid agents enter 'The Cracker Barrel'. Jones, a tall broad-shouldered African-American man with a burning desire for justice, takes a measured look about the barn-like structure. He sees an obese, ill-kept white male sprawled on a bale of hay. Jones and Sanchez, a tall broad-shouldered Mexican-American man with a burning desire for justice and the occasional burrito (mild ethnic humor as permitted by Protocol memo #3773-b) approach the male. 'FBI, we're here to investigate a possible hate crime.', announces Jones in a strong, African-American voice marked by erudition and authority.

    'I don'ts know abouts any ates around heres. I means, theys plenty to eats, but I ain't allowed to eat anys on the jobs, so I don' thinks I ates any.', offers the poorly groomed, gimme cap wearing white male. Jones and Sanchez exchange a quick look and smirk in unison. 'Sir, I realize your English isn't very good, but we are referring to a bias crime and not your culinary habits. Please be so kind as to tell us what you know about the events of this past Tuesday.' Sanchez says this in a laconic English accent with a stylish trace of lisp.

    Without warning the white male reaches for an antiquated blunderbuss and points it at Jones and Sanchez. Employing the quick thinking which has made him a legend Jones points at a spot behind the white and shouts, 'Look, a Negro is kissing a white woman!' As the white turns to look at this outrage Jones and Sanchez bring forth their 15 round Glock 20s and fire bullet after bullet into his corpulent body. With his dying breath the white moans, 'You dones tricks me, you black bastards.' To which Sanchez quips, 'How dare you! I may be a bastard, but at least I'm not black.' Jones responds with mock outrage, 'Damn Sanchez, that joke is getting old.' They laugh in unison. Their eyes lock.

    Final scene: Jones and Sanchez have exchanged their immaculate dark suits for leisure attire. With sweaters fetchingly draped over their broad shoulders they are seen entering an intriguing antiques emporium. Through the store's window we see them discuss an item they both hold. Then Jones answers a cell phone. His expression changes from one of content to one of concern. He ends the call and says something to Sanchez, whose expression also darkens. They shrug and exit the store. We can now hear them, 'Another hate crime Sanchez.' 'Just like roaches. You get rid of one and there's another dozen hiding in the floorboard.' 'And you know about roaches Sanchez.' 'Yes, very amusing Jones. How very amusing.'

    Cue percussion heavy and triumphant music. Roll ending credits. Video is montage of scenes from Denzel Washington movies. The end.Edited by: Charlie

    Lol Charlie did you write that yourself??? I was cracking up the whole time!!! [​IMG] This satirical short story was well written and kept me reading strong the whole time. If you have the time and energy, please write some more of these! I wrote a drama/future/fantasy sports story with a bit of humor thrown in there. I've been working on a longer short story which will be hitting Castefootball Soon!

    Thanks Slide and Jaxvid. I look forward to reading your story Slide.

    Working on next week's installment of 'Jones and Sanchez of the FBI, Law Enforcement Partners'. They go undercover at something called a NASCAR. Rumor has it the 'traditional halftime cross burning' is to be replaced by something even more sinister. In their efforts to blend in they are assisted by Trixie Rosenfeld, the Agencie's wise-cracking costume and camouflage maven. 'But Trixie, doesn't this make me look fat?' 'Why are these costumes so ugly? Do these NASCARs have no sense of fashion?' 'Boys, stop kvetching. I know what I'm doing. I didn't endure two years at Duke and not learn a thing or two about going native.' 'But Trixie, beer hats and orange hunting vests? I thought we're supposed to stop crime, not commit crime. Fashion crime that is.' 'Jones! You're just awful.' 'I know Sanchez. I know. Arrest me.' 'Okay boys, here's the chewing tobacco.'
