Sharpton, Jackson, Media Silent About Hate Crime in S.C.

Six black men assaulted a white man outside a restaurant in Seneca, S.C. on March 17 after insulting him with a racial remark. Such was the severity of the beating and obvious racial motive that local police have referred the case to federal officials. However, contrary to their usual reaction in such matters, the national media have yet to jump on the case, and civil rights leaders have said nothing about it.

Six black men assaulted a white man outside a restaurant in Seneca, S.C. on March 17 after insulting him with a racial remark. Such was the severity of the beating and obvious racial motive that local police have referred the case to federal officials. However, contrary to their usual reaction in such matters, the national media have yet to jump on the case, and civil rights leaders have said nothing about it. The leftist media’s and “civil rights” groups' silence on the subject stands in sharp contrast to their handling of the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida. The media have provided non-stop coverage of that case, often distorting the truth about it, and black leaders are demanding justice — perhaps without knowing all of the relevant facts — for the young man.

The Beating in Seneca
According to the Anderson Independent Mail, “police say they are referring the case to federal authorities to see if the men might be charged with hate crimes. Seneca Police Chief John Covington said the investigation indicated that race was a factor in the attack, so the case file would be transferred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
 
The trouble for Terry Moore, a 32-year-old resident of Macon, N.C., began at about 12:50 a.m. outside the Applebee’s in Seneca.
 
“According to a statement given later by Moore,” the newspaper reported, “he had been fishing with friends in Oconee County all day on March 16 and the group capped the day by going to the Applebee’s.”
