The predatory left has convinced us that white Americans have a long history of physically abusing black people. We are reminded that racists wearing white sheets and silly pointed hats rode through the nights seeking innocent black folks to beat, rob, and lynch.
Most such tales are without merit and documentation. However, black-on-white violence has been epidemic in the United States for generations and is well documented.

Three Greensboro teens accused of killing a man with a fire extinguisher over the meager contents in his pockets were indicted by a Guilford County grand jury this week.
Larry Eugene Brown, 74, of 133 Greenbriar Road Apt. A was killed July 29 while walking to the bus. He died of massive blunt force trauma to the head, according to police. An arrest warrant states Brown was struck with a fire extinguisher. He was robbed of his wallet, a flashlight, a cell phone and $3.
D’Angelo Nathaniel Matthews, 17, of 3503 Sherbourne Lane, is indicted on charges of first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was previously only charged with the first two counts.
“There was evidence to support the (additional) charge,” said Howard Neumann, Guilford County chief assistant district attorney who will try the case.
In addition to Matthews, Christopher Shakel Williams, 16, of 3616 Martin Ave., and Ketrellia Monaja Harris, 15, of 1326 Ogden St., are indicted on the same charges as Matthews. The trio is accused of conspiring to rob Brown that morning, then hitting and killing him with a fire extinguisher.
Williams was 15 at the time of the crime and Harris was 14, according to police. Both were initially charged in juvenile court and had court hearings on Sept. 3 to transfer their cases to Guilford County Superior Court, according to court documents. The cases were transferred based on the seriousness of charges. Both suspects had family attend the hearings, court documents state.
Williams and Harris are both in the Guilford County Juvenile Detention Center with bail set at $2 million secured, according to court documents.
Matthews had been in the Guilford County jail without bail. Matthews’ attorney, Mark Cummings, filed a request for a bond reduction earlier this month requesting an unsecured bond and house arrest, according to court documents. According to jail records, Matthews did get a bond reduction: his bail is now set at $2.5 million, which must be paid in cash. Matthews was 16 at the time of the crime.
The teens are accused of driving around in Harris’ mother’s Plymouth Voyager minivan early in the morning on July 29, according to court documents. Police found an empty fire extinguisher near the apartment complex where Brown lived, and got some information from the apartment complex’s video surveillance. They also got information about suspects from a Crime Stoppers tip, court documents state.
