An active duty combat veteran is dead, a victim of black mob violence.

The soldier, Tevin A. Geike, had been celebrating his safe return from combat and his imminent release from the military. He was walking to his hotel early Saturday morning near a Seattle area military base where KOMO-TV news picks up the story:

“A group of men in a car drove by and someone inside shouted a racial comment toward the white soldiers, the Lakewood Police Department said.

“‘One of the soldiers yelled back something about the suspects treating combat soldiers with disrespect,” Lt. Chris Lawler said.’

“The vehicle turned around, and five black males got out of the car and confronted the soldiers, according to reports. As the verbal confrontation ensued, the driver of the vehicle realized the men were actually combat veterans and called his friends off.

“While the men headed back to their vehicle, one of the suspects appeared to have bumped into the victim, witnesses say.

“The soldiers saw their friend fall to the ground as the car sped away. The victim was bleeding profusely from a stab wound and died at the scene.”

Police are searching for five black men who fled the scene in a midnight blue BMW-type sedan or VW Jetta-type car with four doors, tinted windows and stock rims and low profile tires, said KOMO.

The main suspect was wearing a hoodie.

Social networking pages appearing to belong to 15-year-old James Edwards, one of the suspects accused of mercilessly gunning down Australian student Chris Lane “for the fun of it,” reveals a video of Edwards brandishing a gun as well as multiple photos showing piles of cash he claims belong to him.

The other teens, all said to be facing first-degree murder charges, have reportedly been identified as 16-year-old Chancey Luna and 17-year-old Michael Jones.

“B***h we up dem poles, f**k with me,” James can be heard saying in a newly surfaced Vine video, while brandishing a gun.

In 2005, Oprah Winfrey accused luxury store Hermes in Paris of turning her away when she stopped in to purchase an expensive watch for singer Tina Turner. A spokesperson for the TV personality later referred to the incident as her “crash moment.”

“Crash” was a 2004 film that centered around the damaging effects of racism. The phrase “crash moment” refers to “situations where a party feels discriminated against on the basis of skin color,” CNN reported in 2005.

The claim is extremely similar to Oprah’s recent claim of discrimination she supposedly experienced at a high-end boutique in Zurich, Switzerland. In that case, she says a sales assistant refused to show her a $38,000 handbag because it was too expensive for her. The sales assistant and the store manager have both strongly denied the allegations.

As it turned out, Oprah and her team arrived at Hermes at around 6:45 p.m. on June 14, 2005, which was about 15 minutes after the store had closed and was setting up a private PR event. A store spokesperson said a security guard informed the star that the store was closed. Oprah was given a card and told to come back the next day.

Surveillance footage of the exchange backed up the store’s account. Oprah apparently wanted the store to allow her to make a quick purchase, but was denied.

The New York Post, citing various sources close to Oprah, reported she was turned away because the store had been “having a problem with North Africans lately.”

Brooks Macquarrie does not remember much about the black mob violence that almost killed him one month ago.

Macquarrie was test driving a motor scooter for a shop where he worked as a mechanic. A group of black people approached him as he waited at a downtown New Haven stop light.

When he woke up in the hospital, surrounded by his five children, police thought he might have been hit by a car: Broken ribs. Twenty-one stitches. Fractured eye socket. Broken nose. Head injuries. And lots and lots of blood all over the street.

According to the New Haven Register:

“For his part, MacQuarrie remembers a young man on a bicycle coming at him with an ‘angry look’ in his eye, according to a coworker. He remembers trying to avoid eye contact with the person. He remembers getting hit on the back of the head. After that, he remembers nothing of the incident. “

Macquarrie has not yet returned to work.

Some police still think it might have been a car accident. But they are about the only ones left who do. Aside from local newspaper editors.

As the murder trial of George Zimmerman marches on, supporters of slain teen Trayvon Martin are vowing to carry out disturbing and deadly acts of violence if Zimmerman is not found guilty.

Twitter has been buzzing with death threats against Zimmerman (and random white people…and for the truly ambitious, an “hispanic/white” person) if the verdict isn’t guilty as charged in the murder trial in which Zimmerman is pleading self-defense in his fatal shooting of Martin.

Here’s a sampling via Twitchy (and be advised of rough language ahead):

WAFB reported, via Right Scoop:

He was in the “wrong neighborhood” is just one reason a man gave as to why he was punched in the face. His wife and daughter were also hit.

Police arrested one man and ticketed two others. They are all accused of punching the family.

At the corner of Plank Road and Scenic Highway in Baton Rouge sits a Chevron gas station. It’s off I-110 near Memorial Stadium. A family stopped there to get gas Sunday around 10 p.m.

“Upon our arrival, we located three victims who were attacked in the parking lot,” said Cpl. Tommy Stubbs, spokesperson for the Baton Rouge Police Department.

The owners of the gas station did not want to comment on camera, but said there’s a wide variety of customers in and out of the store in the daytime. At night, though, it’s not the safest of places, especially with the area having some of the highest crime in the city.

“It was a small scene but it got to be a big scene after the fight broke out and it was a big scene when the police came,” said Keisha Henderson, a witness.

Stubbs said a man wearing a pink shirt was in line trying to pay for gas when Donald Dickerson, 41, started making fun of him, leading to an argument.

“The defendant (Dickerson) approached the white male victim,” the police report stated.

It went on to read, “the defendant told him he was in the wrong neighborhood and he was not going to make it out.” The victim said that’s when he “was punched and knocked to the ground.”

At this time, his wife got out of the car and ran to help her husband. The victim said, “he continued to struggle with the defendant and was eventually knocked unconscious, which later he awoke in the hospital.”

When a black mob attacked two reporters in Norfolk, Va., last year, the editor of the Virginian-Pilot newspaper said it was just a “street altercation” and he had no proof of racial motivation.

But even the most diehard denier of the epidemic of black mob violence around the country will find this case difficult to explain away: Three white men in Georgia were allegedly robbed and assaulted and almost killed in April by a group of black people, all because of the color of their skin.

At least that is what the victims told the local sheriff.

Most examples of black mob violence are not that neat. Reporters say they want some kind of written statement or spoken account from the perpetrators professing their racial animosity.

Absent that, they say even a tidal wave of evidence of mob violence committed almost exclusively by black people around the country does not show race had anything to do with anything. But thanks to WND readers, there is this:

In Virginia Beach last week, 40,000 black people rampaged through the Oceanfront at a gathering organized by black promoters, marketed to black schools and attended by people in buses from black fraternities. Everyone involved in the violence and lawlessness was black. The videos and eyewitness accounts and a subsequent town hall meeting remove any doubt about that.

This racial violence was just one of more than 500 episodes documented in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It.”

WND reader Carol Finnegan asked some reporters whether they had heard about this “race riot.” They were kind enough to be honest with her.

Ms. Wright was a counselor at Andrew Jackson Middle School in Grand Prairie ISD. That was until the district announced that she has been “immediately relieved of all duties.” The action was reportedly taken after an offensive remark written from her Facebook page (now removed from the web) was posted on WFAA-TV’s Facebook page. The statement in question referenced to the tragedy in West, Texas.

The “White Student Union” that caused a racial stir at CPAC earlier this month says it’s conducting night patrols at a Baltimore-area university to guard against what it sees as rising “black on white crime.”

Towson University doesn’t officially recognize the student organization, which made national headlines after one of its members questioned what Frederick Douglass’s former owner needed to be forgiven for: “For giving him food and shelter?” Scott Terry asked the question during a panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Now, group founder Matthew Heimbach says the White Student Union — which has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center — will take up its own patrols to combat the “very large problem of black-male-against-white-female crime,” he told the Baltimore Sun.

He said the group plans to go out a few nights a week, arming the men with heavy-duty flashlights and the women with pepper spray. He told the Sun they will attempt citizen’s arrests if they witness a “violent felony” but will mostly just inform police of crimes. Heimbach did not immediately return a request for comment from TheBlaze.

“The goal is not to go out and intimidate, the goal is not to go out and prove something, the goal is just to be an extra set of eyes and ears for the [Towson] community at large,” Heimbach told the newspaper, and said the group will also help any victims they find who are not white.
