Fuck. That happened to my brother. When I was very little, he was sent to either prison or jail (I was too little to know, and I don’t bring it up with him now; it’s not something we talk about) because a white woman lied about being robbed, and said the robber had been a Black man, and unfortunately, my brother fit the description. In actuality, it had been his friend. His white friend. My brother had been in the military. He’d had plans for starting his own business. And everything was taken from him because some stupid ass lying white bitch with a complex of her own couldn’t keep her stupidity to herself.
This is a police drawing of the non-existent black woman whom Bethany Storro said threw acid in her face (via abagond). Abagond lists other famous examples of the “phantom black assailant” phenomenon:
1923: Fannie Taylor – covered up a violent love affair with a white man by saying that it was a black man who had beat her up. As the story spread, rape and robbery were soon added. Whites burned down the nearby black town of Rosewood, Florida. At least six blacks and two whites were killed.
1995: Susan Smith – said a black man took her car at gunpoint with her two little boys still in it and drove it into a lake. It turns out she was the one who drove the car into the lake to kill her sons.
2008: Joseph C. Vignola, Jr – said he was having sex with a call girl when a “light-skinned black man” burst into the hotel room and cut her throat. But it was Vignola who cut her throat, taking back his money and leaving her for dead.
2008: Ashley Todd – said she was robbed at gunpoint at a bank machine by “six-foot-four African American of medium build, dressed in dark clothes wearing shiny shoes”. When he saw the McCain sticker on her car he cut a B on her cheek and said, “You are going to be a Barack supporter.” Police noticed the B was backwards: she had done it to herself using a mirror.
2009: Bonnie Sweeten – hoping to disappear with money she took from her employer, called the police to tell them that she and her nine-year-old daughter had been forced into the trunk of a car by two black car thieves. The police found her and her daughter – at Disney World!
2010: Robert Ralston – himself a police officer, said a black man with “cornrows” and a “mark or tattoo under his left eye” put a gun to his head and wound up shooting him in the shoulder. After a huge manhunt the police found the shooter: Ralston himself!
2010: Bethany Storro – said that a black woman came up to her outside of a Starbucks and asked, “Hey pretty girl, want something to drink?” and then threw acid in her face. But it was Storro herself who put acid on her face.
and these are only the ones where what actually happened came out. think of how many times innocent black people were killed or punished for white people’s shit.
Man, this shit is more common than you’d think probably
Shit, I knew a white girl in high school who told her boyfriend a black guy tried to rape her to make him feel bad about being late for picking her up.
And before you ask, obviously I’m not friends with her anymore
My friend, Carl, went to JAIL for almost a year because the wife of a local highschool gym teacher, who happened to also live in his grandmothers’ neighborhood (where he was living at the time), said a “Black guy with dreads, skinny build, tall in height” raped her. Carl was out skateboarding back home when police tackled and apprehended him, arresting him on suspicion and the fact he lived near her, had dreads, was skinny, and has a thick (sometimes incoherent) New York accent. 9 months in jail. Record ruined. Because a white woman LIED.
This is what I’m talking about when I say that white women like to act like they’re too delicate and sweet for racism, but they’re the nastiest perpetrators almost every fucking time. Also, didn’t it come out that the white kid who got set on fire or whatever “by Black people” lied? I can’t even remember the case, but it was upheld almost to counter the Trayvon Case. (Because god forbid white people not have the limelight for once.)
