The media rages anytime a Black person is killed by a White police officer. However, they seem to have no outrage when a Black person murders an innocent White person.
In Meriweather County Georgia, an 83-year-old white woman named Dorothy was been beaten and set on fire by a black gang, back in August. She was attacked during a home invasion and died after weeks in the hospital, as per CBS46. However, there has been no outcry of racism or criticism of the black community over this horrific crime, especially not from Black Lives Matter.
Two Black men and two Black women will now face felony murder and malice murder charges over this crime. They should also be facing hate crime charges. There was another male originally charged in this crime, but when Dorothy succumbed to her wounds his charges were not upgraded to murder along with the others.
If these five are responsible, they are racist pigs who forced their way into an elderly woman’s home, robbed her, physical beat her, and then set her body on fire. This is absolutely disgusting.
When the perpetrators entered her home, one of them hit Dorothy in the arm and broke several bones. Then, after they set her on fire, she fell to the floor and tried to put the fire out and call 911 on her cell phone.
Dorothy’s daughter-in-law Beth Dow commented on the attack by saying, “With one hand broken and her arm broken in four places, she pulled the top off of a gallon of water, poured it over her head and put out the fire. She then drug herself into the den on her broken arms to get to her cellphone to call 911. She said, ‘I thought they were going to kill me’. They told her that she was never going to see her sons again.”
Dorothy was hospitalized after the incident. After having several surgeries for her burns and broken bones, she passed away. The assailants are being held without bond and I think we all hope that, if they are the guilty parties, they rot in prison for the rest of their lives or are given the death penalty.
This tragedy really illustrates the problem with movements like Black Lives Matter and the media. The organization doesn’t concern themselves with the individuals that killed this poor old woman. They only care about criticizing white people and police officers. For it’s part, the media hasn’t blown up this story and made it national news, even though it clearly should be.
If you truly want to advocate for life, on the basis that all human life is valuable, then you have to be equally outraged anytime anyone suffers a death as this woman did. The fact that they don’t care about this horrible crime indicates the Black Lives Matter movement is completely callous and racist, and that the media is determined to play into their hands.
Martin Luther King Jr himself said that he wanted to live in a society that cared about all people, regardless of race. Every time someone is outraged at the death of a Black person at the hands of a White cop, but not at the death of a White person at the hands of Black thugs, they betray Martin Luther King’s dream.
The people who advocate on behalf of Black people need to focus on why there is so much crime in the black community. That too, impacts Black lives, whether they are the perpetrators or the victims.
