Charlottesville Riots Leave 3 Dead 34 Injured And Prove Racism Is Still Alive In America

August 14. 2017

Violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, leaving 3 dead and 34 injured. The events began when a large group of torch bearing white supremacists marched onto the campus of the University of Virginia, during their "Unite The Right" protest. They were protesting the planned removal of a statue of confederate general, Robert E. Lee.

The crowd also chanted anti-Semitic statements regarding the appointment of Jewish faculty member. They chanted slurs such as "n*gger" and "Jew will not replace us." They cluelessly gathered around a statue of Thomas Jefferson on the campus. Jefferson is the president who fathered children with black slave, Sally Hemings. While spewing their hateful views, the neo-Nazis got into confrontations with people on the campus, resulting in fist fights. It was not a peaceful protest by anyone's standards.

James Alex Fields Jr.

20-year-old white supremacist, James Alex Fields Jr., drove his car into a crowd of people who were protesting racists. White 32-year-old Heather D. Heyer was killed and 19 people injured. Fields claims to be about the preservation of the white race and kills an innocent white woman exercising her right to free speech and assemble with others. Two state troopers were also killed when the helicopter they used to patrol the protests crashed.

It was an ugly weekend on so many levels, as it served as a jarring reminder that racism is alive in America. The hatred that erupted is a terrible throwback to dark and evil times in America where black people were enslaved and many lynched.

University of Virginia protests

For the past few years I have stated on this website that America is going backwards in the area of race relations. The events of this past weekend struck a chord with me. As many of my longtime readers know, I had written about the racism I have faced in America at Hollywood's hands, as backed by the FBI and CIA. Much like what transpired in Charlottesville, I have been slurred via racial epithets with attempts made to run me over with vehicles. Through Charlottesville, the masses can now see what I have written about for years - America is going backwards and much to the country's detriment.

The events that occurred in Charlottesville have been carried all over the world by thousands of publications and websites as a representation of life in America. It's not a good global image to present to the world. However, I have come to realize, some hateful, racist people don't care if they disgrace the country with their behavior, as they are so consumed by hatred and evil that's all they see.

Something that is very spiritually evil has been taking over America for the past decade, embedding itself in the federal government, corporate sector, media and entertainment - and given the chance it is going to destroy the nation. Something very bad is upon America and if Congress had any sense they would put a stop to it before it's too late. People need to pray for the country. Something very bad is afoot.


A Guide to the Violence in Charlottesville

AUG. 13, 2017 - If you are just catching up on the weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Va., or are overwhelmed by the volume of news, here is an overview of The New York Times’s coverage. Skirmishes, and then a speeding car. White nationalists gathered on Saturday for a “Unite the Right” march in Charlottesville, where they were met by counterprotesters. Taunting led to shoving, which escalated into brawling.

Then, around 1:45 p.m., a car plowed into a group of counterprotesters and another car. One person was killed: Heather D. Heyer, 32, a paralegal from Charlottesville who “was a passionate advocate for the disenfranchised and was often moved to tears by the world’s injustices.” Read The Times’s profile of Ms. Heyer, and an article about the counterprotesters.

Two state troopers also died on Saturday. Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper Berke M. M. Bates were in a helicopter circling Charlottesville, monitoring the demonstrations, when the helicopter fell and burst into flames. In total, at least 34 people were wounded in the clashes, and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia declared a state of emergency...
