What’s Equal Dignity Got To Do With It? Black mob armed with brass knuckles, chairs, and paint cans, and yelling “Justice for Trayvon,” beats white man in front of his house, putting him in critical condition

Before we get to the story, which is from Mobile, Alabama, here, for context, are just some of the other incidents of sudden, extreme black-on-white violence that have been reported in the media (whether as an original story or a follow-through) during the last ten days:

Black couple shoot white woman, run her over, kidnap her baby

Unarmed 17 year old black in London kills white man with a punch to the head

85 year old Nancy strait raped and beaten to death by blacks

Senior British diplomat loses eye after being punched by black as he walks through a London cemetery

Two blacks knock 19 year old white to ground, repeatedly punch him in head

Yelling, “F**k the white man!”, black in Washington Metro head butts and punches in the face a white passenger

In Sanford, Florida, a black used a racial slur on a white and hit him in the face with a pistol

For further context, here is what Andrew McCarthy said about John Derbyshire’s warnings to whites about black anti-white violence. After he referred to Derbyshire’s “The Talk: Nonblack Version” article as “noxious … racialism” for which he deserved to be dismissed from National Review, McCarthy continued:

We believe in the equal dignity and presumption of equal decency toward every person—no matter what race, no matter what science tells us about comparative intelligence, and no matter what is to be gleaned from crime statistics. It is important that research be done, that conclusions not be rigged, and that we are at liberty to speak frankly about what it tells us. But that is not an argument for a priori conclusions about how individual persons ought to be treated in various situations—or for calculating fear or friendship based on race alone. To hold or teach otherwise is to prescribe the disintegration of a pluralistic society, to undermine the aspiration of E Pluribus Unum.

And now here are some questions I have for Andy McCarthy: What does “equal dignity toward every person,” by which you meant equal dignity toward every black person, which you felt was threatened by Derbyshire’s article, have to do with savage attacks by blacks on whites that are going on throughout this country and in Britain as well? What does the one have to do with the other? How does “equal dignity” tell us to respond to these attacks? How does “equal dignity” tell us to protect ourselves from these attacks? What does it tell us to say about them? Indeed, why was the idea of “equal dignity toward every person” even relevant as a way of responding to Derbyshire’s true article about the continuing threat whites face from savage racial violence and how to avoid falling victim to it?

And now, the latest, from WKRG in Mobile, Alabama reports:

Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he’s in critical condition.

According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.

Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.

Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. “It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.” Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.”

Police will only say “multiple people” are involved.

What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said “Now thats justice for Trayvon.” Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Samford, Florida.

Police canvassed the area, but did not find any suspects. They’re asking anyone with information to call them at 251-208-7211, Crime Stoppers at 251-208-7000, or text a tip to 274637 and include the keyword CRIME 411.

Here is another story with more horrible details:

40-year-old man beaten in street

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA)—An attack leaves a man in critical condition, and police investigating possible arrests. It happened Saturday night, and allegedly started with kids playing basketball.

“What we initially have been able to tell from the investigation is that our victim was fussing at some kids for playing basketball on the street. What we believe happened is the kids left and told someone that he was fussing about them playing basketball,” said Cpl. Chris Levy with Mobile Police.

That’s when police said an unknown number of people came back and attacked Owens on the front porch of the house where he was staying. Owens’ friend was inside the home and heard the attack while it was happening. He said he looked out the window to see what was going on.

‘“I seen all these people just rushing. It was like I seen at least 15 children, women, men. It was horrible before I could. I was paralyzed,” said the man who did not want to be identified.

He said it was a horrific scene.

“They busted his head open, he got staples and everything. I sat there and held him trying to get him to stop bleeding,” said the friend.

Police said Owens was beaten with several different objects including paint cans. No arrests have been made at this time.

It is still unclear what Owens said during the dispute. Police want anyone with information about this incident to please call them.

Andrew McCarthy informs me that he cannot repond to my questions at the moment as he is on a deadline, finishing a book on the Arab Spring.

As I was thinking last night about that beaten-down Mobile man I wondered if justice would ever be done. I wondered if there were enough good men in Alabama to organize and defend their lives and property. I wondered if that could only happen with vigilante justice. It occurred to me that we are living under another Reconstruction. We are all Southerners now.
