Raceless man strikes several raceless pedestrians on head with hammer, kills one

(Update, 10 a.m.: the Washington Examiner reports that two of Davis’s other victims are black. This information was not contained in several other news articles I read about the attacks. As I said in the original entry, in trying to figure out the true facts of racial violence in America, we are forced to read between the lines of news coverage that is systematically dishonest and conceals pertinent information. Most of my guesses in this area have been right; sometimes, as in this instance, they are wrong.)

A 19 year old man has been arrested for smashing several pedestrians in the head with a hammer in sudden unprovoked attacks in Washington, D.C. last week. One of victims was a 66-year-old man who was found dead in an alley. Others are in the hospital in critical condition. None of the victims was robbed. Meaning that hammer-man attacked them solely for the purpose of causing them maximum injury or death.

While there is no photograph yet of the alleged killer, Michael Davis, we know that he is black, because he has two brothers in the NFL and their photos are at Wikipedia:

of the Miami Dolphins, brothers of Michael Davis

We also know that one of the victims, the one who is dead, Gary Dederichs, 66, a tourist in the nation’s capital from Denver, is white, because (since he’s dead and not just gravely injured and in the hospital) there is a photo of him:

Gary Dederichs, the latest human sacrifice to Black-Run America

Yet in all the articles I’ve seen about this black man who hit a white pedestrian on the head with a hammer and killed him, there is not a single mention of the race of the assailant and the victim. [Note: except for the story in the Washington Examiner, linked in the update at the top of this entry.]

Because of the unprovoked nature of the attacks that were aimed solely at causing harm (when blacks attack strangers simply to hurt them, the victims are almost always white), and because the only victim whose race we do know is white, it seems to me that there is a good chance that all of Michael Davis’s victims are white—I’d guess an 80 percent chance. James P., who sent me the story, agrees with my 80 percent guess.

The absence of any reference to race in articles about black people attacking and killing white people has become a major phenomenon of our time, yet only a handful of blogs write about it. Here’s the way it works. Unless the assailant pronounces the words “white,” as in “I hate white people,” or “Let’s get the honkie,” the race of the assailant and the victim is never mentioned by the news media. American liberals have become like Holocaust deniers. The Holocaust deniers have always argued that because historians never found a signed order by Hitler stating,

Destroy European Jewry, by (1) dispossessing them, then (2) shipping them in cattle cars either to (2a) slave labor camps where they will be worked to death, or (2b) death camps where they will be immediately killed.
Adolf Hitler

the Nazi murder of the Jews didn’t happen. It’s the same with our liberal media and the police: unless a black attacker of whites conveniently declares, “I hate whites,” it’s not a racially motivated crime and the police and media will say nothing about race.

Now get this:

The victim killed, Gary Dederichs, 66, is from Denver. His body was left in an alley in northwest.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Thursday that all three victims suffered head trauma and appear to have been attacked suddenly and without provocation.

Lanier says there’s no apparent motive for the attacks and no similarity between the victims other than they were walking

You know what that reminds me of? The arrest of 17 terrorists in Canada in 2006, of whom the authorities said:

Aside from the fact that virtually all are young men, it’s hard to find a common denominator.

In fact all 17 of the arrested men were Muslims. Yet the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said that it was hard to find a common denominator among them:

In investigators’ offices, an intricate graph plotting the links between the 17 men and teens charged with being members of a homegrown terrorist cell covers at least one wall. And still, says a source, it is difficult to find a common denominator….

RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell said yesterday the suspects are all Canadian residents and the majority are citizens. “They represent the broad strata of our community. Some are students, some are employed, some are unemployed,” he said.

Returning to the D.C. hammer attacks, if, as seems probable, all the victims are white, and since Police Chief Cathy Lanier says there is no similarity among the victims, then here is an instance in which the police have gone beyond simply not mentioning race in black-on-white attacks, to dishonestly denying that black-on-white attacks are black-on-white attacks.

As I see it, the fact that the police chief went out of her way to state that there is no similarity among the victims makes it more, not less, likely that all the victims are white. Since she is eager to deny that there is any common feature (namely whiteness) uniting the victims, it stands to reason that if some of the victims were black, she would have said that some of the victims are black. But she didn’t say that. Therefore it is likely that all the victims are white.

I do not know that all the victims are white. I have given my reasons for believing that it’s probable that they are.

Dealing with the U.S. media’s dishonest and wicked coverage of black anti-white violence gives us an idea what it was like in the U.S.S.R., trying to figure out what was really happening by reading between the lines—between the lies—of Pravda and Izvestia.

I saw this story early this morning when I tuned into a local DC channel for the weather. The first of several victims was being interviewed on the street. He was well-spoken but of uncertain race. They would not show his face or even his bare arms. They only showed his legs? They showed a photos of another white male victim. They also showed a photo of the apprehended perp, a young black male.

LA replies:

If it weren’t for the Washington Examiner article, sent to me by a reader, we still would not have any idea of the race of the victims other than Dederichs.

I’ve been following this story. Very strange. That’s a gentrifying area in DC (one of the last to fall).

Blacks are being pushed out of DC; crime is down considerably. However, Prince George’s County, where the blacks are largely being pushed out to, is seeing an increase in crime. And property depreciation. Conversely, DC property has some of the highest rates in the nation.

The law of supply and demand is not color-blind.
