    What irks me about this more than anything is that she just had to claim that it was a big black man who attacked her.

    Isn't that what false alarmists always do. Remember the woman who claimed a black man stole her car and kidnapped her kids. When did black people start kidnapping? Haha.

    And also, when the runaway bride blamed a Hispanic man (and a white woman) for her disappearance. Why the imaginary minority suspects?

    To be fair, the DC snipers were initially suspected to be white and I think there was some surprise over the Asian man at Virginia Tech. Every population segment has a "bad" side.

    As someone who is married to a "big black man" it certainly doesn't help when someone perpetuates the stereotype that big + black + male=scary/criminal.

    One of the sweetest people I know is a big black man, and it pisses me off that anyone would write him off as scary for any reason. It doesn't surprise me, though, that a young white Republican woman in Texas would fabricate a big black man as her assailant. Frankly, it would have surprised me if she'd faked any other minority.
    "And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
    Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
    Stolen.

    Yup, pisses me off too. My husband is a sweet, generous and patient gentleman (and a former college linebacker), but I know people who don't know him at all will take one look and him and jump to conclusions on his appearance alone. When stuff like this comes out, it just perpetuates the myth.

    Not that anything she did was right in this entire "crime" but the description of the "assailant" is just another thing that makes me go: :banghead:

    The mother who pushed her car into the lake with her kids in it - she also say it was done by blacks, right? She was from Texas too if I recall.

    And there was a husband in Boston who killed his wife and shot himself in the leg - he came up with the 'big black man' story too.

    Wow, this make me feel worse than if it were true. I admit I don't understand how she got those bruises on her eyes, but if the police have proven it's a fake story, then so be it.

    I read this in the "comments" section of one of the articles about this dingbat, and it was far too hilariously weird not to share:

    It's easy to have someone hit you in the eye to give you a black eye. But this is kind of a moot point when you think about it since you have to consider how many levels of CRAZY this person must be to be able to carve a backwards B in her own face. If you can knife your own face to carve a backwards B into it, then bruising your own eye, or getting someone equally sick to do it for you must be a cinch!

    My first reaction to the original story was OMG, this election has gone out of control. My second reaction was, that's kind of a strange "carving" on her face, looks more like a scrap event, but if she says it's been "carved" into her face who am I to question. Now it turns out to be a hoax. To blame a "big black man" for an attack that never happened only supports my claim that in this election many voters will have to decide if they are more of a racist or a sexiest. This makes me want to vomit. If you want to commit a crime of violence feel free to blame a tiny white woman with curly hair, I won't mind.

    After reading her Myspace page and Myspace Blog, it's clear she has many issues. I think Americans are divided enough by this election. We don't need more of this racist bs. It's disgusting that so many people were willing and ready to believe that big black Obama supporters are ready to beat the crap out of white women. What the?!

    @CottonCandyCurls & xcptnl:

    Susan Smith is from South Carolina.

    Charles Stuart was the man from Boston that killed his wife. Picture from Bonnie's Blog Of Crime.

    I'm just shocked that maniacs keep doing this and people keep falling for it. At least this time they stopped it before things got out of control like they did in Boston and South Carolina. Ugh.

    I'm sure I've mentioned it here before but my boss is one of these people who honestly believes Blacks will break any and every law they can think of if Obama wins. He says that Obama is going to empty the jails of ALL AAs just because he's a "brotha" and will that he will try to get more white folks in jail as revenge for all the blacks in jail. Lunacy I know. I don't even bother engaging him anymore. He's old and forgets stuff, I hope he forgets to vote on the 4th. :tongue5:

    Pardon my censored French here, but your boss is an idiotic, ignorant ****head. What a raging lunatic. Let your boss know that Obama's BIRACIAL first of all. (That blanket labeling people do here, so annoys me.) Obama's just as much "caucasian" as he is "african". That's the first thing. And he was raised, loved, and adored by his amazing family, who happens to be "white".

    Second, let your boss know that many people overseas think that same way about him...and about Americans as a whole. I've lived in Germany and in France and in both countries, they make no distinction between a "white" american or a "black american. Both of our asses are considered one of those "mixed americans" or "métisses" (someone multi-ethnic/racial).

    (And unless you're a recent immigrant to the US EVERYONE here is multi-racial/ethnic, anyway, so this false, hypocritical obsession people have here of "race" and "racial purity" is just beyond me and makes other countries laugh at us.)

    Both of us are equal in their eyes, and especially since we're multi-racial here people think of me the same way they think of your boss, the same way they think of my granny (she's Irish), the same way they think of my mother( East Asian/African-American). They make no distinction and see us equally.

    Maybe dumb ass boss needs a wakeup call to see he's not as "lily white" as he seems to think. Let someone in Europe let his ass know what's up. My best friend from Germany would do it with great pleasure.


    People like him give Americans the world over a really bad name/reputation. That so infuriates me. :banghead:

    It pisses me off too. I've asked him how his view of other could be so racist, knowing that 6 million of his people died because of someone elses racist views?

    Believe me, I've tried. He's in his 70's so I'm sure he's not going to change his view. He will sit there and say I'm not like other single Latina moms just because I'm not sitting home on welfare. The Blacks that work in our company are the exception to the rule of all blacks being bad. Same for any other minority. The Arabs not terrorist. The Mexicans are not illegal.(actually they are not) but you see what I mean. It's like the all the minorities he knows are the exception to all the racist views he has of our different races.

    To be honest, before I even saw the picture, I had a suspicion that it was fake precisely because of the "big, black guy" claim...

    I can't believe she added sexual assault to her fake claim later, too. That angered me even more, because not only was she playing on the "black men are criminals" stereotype, she was also drawing on an incredibly disturbing part of our history based on myth that black men were a threat to pure white womanhood. She was appealing to the basest instincts and fears of white racists.

    Also, her black eye looks very fake. If someone hits you in the eye hard enough to give you a black eye, it usually breaks blood vessels or at least makes your eye swell a lot. It looked like a bad make-up job.

    yeah, really. Not to mention, this is one of the reasons why it's so hard for women who have been sexually assaulted to come forward. The fear of no-one believing them.

    First the Johnstown youtube stuff, now this. Western PA is not looking so good lately.

    I spent the last 5 days in WV with my Mom staying with her post-sugery since my Dad was out of town for work. I heard a bit about this story and was appalled at the info I first heard. Election violence is disgusting.

    Then, her picture shows up on the local WV station. I had to chuckle at the backwards "b" which led me to think it was fake. I believe I told my Mom "Look, some dumb yinzer must have cut her own face to get that perfect backwards 'b'." Turns out she wasn't even a yinzer, but a Texan.

    Then, to hear the rest of the story - I'm pissed. The fake beating, the fake black man. Ugh.

    Lol, well, that's why I linked two definitions. :) Yinzer can be used in the same way that redneck is used elsewhere and can have both negative and positive meanings, depending on the situation.

    We have a new guy at work who came here from Philly. His accent and 'youse guys' useage crack me up.

    The Pittsburgh left is a handy tool for the left turning vehicle though.

    I would like to see more people allowing left-turners to go though...people around here do NOT let you turn and the traffic backs up behind them.

    Your boss should not being telling you you're an 'exception to the rule' because you're Latina and not on welfare. Seriously. If you work for a large corporation, talk to human resources. Most companies know that a racist dirtbag sitting around is a ticking lawsuit, and would rather fire his ass than get sued.
