Alton Hayes III, age 18 of Maywood, Illinois, and a 15-year-old accomplice attacked a 19-year-old white man from behind. Hayes pointed a large tree branch to the man’s head and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.” The two then rifled the man’s pockets, threw him to the ground and kicked and punched him several times.
The 15-year old was arrested as a juvenile, Hayes was charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated battery and a hate crime. He’s being held on $80,000 bond.
Story was reported by Fox Chicago News.
This is the sort of thing that inevitably results from the sort of racial hate mongering over the Trayvon Martin case being conducted by the Obama administration and their willing accomplices in the news media. If you voted for Obama to prove you’re not a racist and because you thought that having a black president would finally put racial tension to rest, you can now see how misguided that was. The left gains too much political advantage from playing the race card at every turn to ever give it up willingly. The race card and racial bigotry will continue to be played over and over by the left in government and in the media as long as it continues to work for them. Only when whites stop being influenced by phony made-up charges of white racism and admit that black racism is the real problem, will the left give up the race card.
This story demonstrates how racial hate mongering on the left produces black victims. Alton Hayes is charged with heinous acts of criminality, but if he is guilty he was egged on by opportunistic Democrat politicians and their lackeys, gladly helped by their sycophants in the media. At the tender age of 18 Hayes is probably impressionable to calls of violence by people in positions of authority. That makes him a victim of these despicable practices as much as the white man who was beaten and robbed.
