Yet another made up accusation

Can we just get this damn election over already? Between black cameramen at McCain/Palin rallies being called nasty names, to Obama being accused of being a Muslim with a crazy radical pastor (I love that one), to Obama being hung from a tree in effigy, this has already gotten absurd.

Now it's getting dangerous. The latest thing is the return of the big bad scary black man. You better lock up your vulnerable little white girls (especially your fat ugly ones) cause there's nothing that we scary angry black men want to do more than rob them and mutilate them.

In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a snippet: (here's the whole story)
According to WTAE's news exchange partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her and put a knife to her throat.

and of course you know the description of the attacker (but say it in your head before you read it next, just to see if you can predict what it will be):
The robber is described as a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes.
This shit would be funny if it weren't so damn dangerous. This shit is what gets us lynched. This is the kinda shit that cause police forces to detain anyone who matches "the description." WTF.

Kudos in advance to the Pittsburgh police for knowing this sounds fishy. Kudos to some on the right (Michelle Malkin for one) who said this don't sound right. And to the morons at Fox and the Drudge Report who have been making this a nationwide story - I quote John Stewart - Fuck all y'all.

She admits (here), under questioning from the Pittsburgh police, that she made it up. Thank you Pittsburgh police.


  1. Well, this was certainly a disgrace upon the beautiful black male species and only an ignorant, back-roads caucasian female would deliver such stupidity! I am so sick and tired of the continued negative biases against our black men. When are we gonna stand up to this sh*t!?! WTF is my sentiment exactly!

  2. Thanks for the comment. I have to say that in this case, we got a better outcome than "us" standing up for "us." We got the system standing up for justice.

    It was the Pittsburgh police who treated this like a suspicious allegation. It was the police who investigated further. It was the police who tricked the false accuser into coming in and giving a truthful statement.

    In this case, the system did right by us. And I think that we have to speak up loudly and forcefully and say Thank You to the Pittsburgh Police! Especially to the detectives who actually got to the bottom of this, and to their superiors.

    Thank You!
