DAILYKENN.com -- Marla Belin is dead.
The 55-year-old talent agent was reportedly beaten to death by a black male after she refused his advances during a robbery.
Arrested is 40-year-old Tyrone Fountain.
Belin died after her head was slammed into concrete.
“I did hit her, that’s why my hand is messed up … and the other hand is messed up from the dog,” Fountain told Fox 8.
Black-on-white violence has been an epidemic for generations in America. Historically, white people have resisted the violence. However, in recent decades whites have allowed themselves to be cajoled into submission though psychological manipulation involving guilt and race shaming; imagining themselves to be racists for even acknowledging the reality of epidemic.

Marla Belin, owner of NOLA Talent Entertainment, died Friday (Dec. 28) from injuries sustained in a Dec. 17 attack in the 7th Ward, friends and coworkers confirmed Sunday.
The Orleans Parish coroner has yet to name the victim, but friends and coworkers identified Belin, owner of the talent agency that focused on discovering and supporting local musicians, as the 55-year-old woman that New Orleans police said had been assaulted during a purse snatching midday Dec. 17 in the 1700 block of North Dorgenois Street. NOPD said the man tried to steal the woman’s purse. The woman attempted to run away, but the man gave chase and threw her to the ground, slamming her head on the concrete several times before striking her in the face, police said.
Belin had been hospitalized since the attack and first appeared in stable condition, but her condition quickly deteriorated, according to an agency employee, who spoke with Belin in the hours after the attack.
She was taken off of life support on Friday, police said.
“Every musician in this city loved her. She was just a great lady,” said the employee, who asked not to be identified out of concern for his own safety. “She would only hire local musicians of New Orleans and really lifted up the people of the community. She didn’t need to do this work. She wanted to.”
Tyrone Fountain, 40, was jailed on Dec. 19 on charges of simple robbery and second-degree battery related to the attack.
