Did 5 Blacks Kill Returning Combat Vet Because He Was White?

The incidents of violence committed by blacks is growing out of control.  It seems that ever since the shooting of Trayvon Martin, blacks have declared open season on whites across the country and our black leaders (Obama and Holder) are saying and doing nothing to stop it.  Their silence seems to be an endorsement and encouragement for the violence to continue.

In one of the latest instances, a serviceman, Tevin A. Geike, who recently returned home from combat and awaiting his discharge from the military was stabbed to death by a group of blacks because he was white.

According to witnesses, several servicemen were walking to their hotel early Sunday morning near their base in Seattle.  A car with five black men drove by and began yelling out racial slurs against the white servicemen.  According to Lt. Chris Lawler of the Lakewood Police Department:

“‘One of the soldiers yelled back something about the suspects treating combat soldiers with disrespect.”

“The vehicle turned around, and five black males got out of the car and confronted the soldiers, according to reports. As the verbal confrontation ensued, the driver of the vehicle realized the men were actually combat veterans and called his friends off.”

“While the men headed back to their vehicle, one of the suspects appeared to have bumped into the victim, witnesses say.”

“The soldiers saw their friend fall to the ground as the car sped away. The victim was bleeding profusely from a stab wound and died at the scene.”

The description of the main suspect is a black man wearing a hoodie.

Residents of the area say that this is predominantly a black neighborhood and most people understand that white people are not welcome.  Yet, white servicemen stationed at the nearby military base use the hotel while they are there.  I find the excuse that it’s a black only neighborhood constitutes racial discrimination and that the murder of Tevin A. Geike is a hate crime and should be prosecuted as such.

Yet, we don’t hear from those advocates who fight against racial hate crimes.  The police say they initially investigated this as a racial hate crime, but after investigating the murder, they said race was not involved.  If 5 white men attacked and murdered a black man after yelling racial slurs, they would definitely be facing racial hate crime charges.  US Attorney General Eric Holder, the Justice Department and loud mouthed social activists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be insisting on racial hate crime charges, regardless what the police investigation said.  But note that they are all noticeably absent and silent and these black men will escape racial hate crime charges although it occurred in a black neighborhood where whites are not welcomed or tolerated.
