A hate crime in the streets of New York leaves many unsure as to where America is heading.
A white man from Baltimore told police that he traveled all the way to New York solely to KILL black men.
Sounds like modern day lynching in this Trump era America.
Carrying out acts of hate because someone is black, feeling need to make America a better place or "great again".
According to the Washington Post, police say James H. Jackson, 28, of Baltimore told detectives that he traveled to New York from Maryland on a bus last week “for the purpose of killing black men,” according to a complaint filed in New York Criminal Court.
Jackson turned himself in about 24 hours after fatally stabbing a man he encountered on the street officials stated. The man Jackson encountered was 66-year-old Timothy Caughman, a former social worker who, in his retirement years, had taken to recycling to keep busy and help pay for his apartment, a room in a building for people transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing.
Caughman was at the wrong place at the wrong time and being black only made him more of a target.
Being black and living in America is a crime in itself to racists like Jackson who targeted black men for death to make a statement about the kind of society that he wants to have.
Motivated purely by hatred, he said to have settled on New York because of the flood of media there and his goal was to draw the widest possible attention to his murderous plan.
Authorities described the suspected attacker as someone who had long harbored feelings of hatred toward black men before violently acting on them this week.
This was nothing more than a message of hate that is all too familiar if you take a look back at America’s history with hate crimes against the black community.
Trump has yet to ‘tweet’ about the issue of the hate crime that occurred. Can’t say that we aren’t surprised that his little Twitter fingers have gone cold.
