Woman Set on Fire Allegedly For Wearing a Pro-Obama T-Shirt

A woman was set on fire this weekend, allegedly for wearing a pro-Obama t-shirt.  Sharmeka Moffitt is now in critical condition after the incident, which has sent shock waves through the Winnsboro, LA community.  According to the Franklin Parish Sheriff’s Office, Moffitt was walking along a trail at 8 pm on Sunday evening and three men approached her.  That is when she was attacked and set on fire.

The 20-year old woman was taken to a hospital in Winnsboro and then transferred to LSU Hospital, which is in Shreveport.

The media hadn’t picked up on the incident until it hit social media.  The story has gone viral on Twitter and Facebook, adding increased tension to the atmosphere surrounding the final presidential debate.  The presidency of Barack Obama has been a test on race relations in America, and Louisiana is one of the hottest anti-Obama hotbeds in the nation.

In spite of reports that the woman was attacked for wearing a pro-Obama t-shirt, the sheriff’s office is stating that they don’t know what motivated the attack.  Mixed reports coming to us at Your Black World say that the attack may have been a hate crime.

The Louisiana State Police are now picking up the investigation.

    Our hearts and prayers go out to this young woman. This attack speaks to the hatred that is still so widespread in America. It is also a reminder about the hooligans living among us but these hooligans would like us to respect them although they don’t deserve our respect. Why must we show any respect for cannibals, trash, and ignoramuses? This is why EVERY BLACK person must VOTE Obama/Biden 2012

    Those of the first nation experienced this type of terrorism when president Andrew Jackson began scalping Indians. Terrorism and oppression is a part of their nature. They admittedly foment rebellion across the world in order to destabilize and remove governments that they do not control. They have rejected the Creator of the universe and sided with The Destroyer. The Destroyer is a murderer and those who have his mind kill, steal and oppress. They set up systems that encourage theft by the banks and those who borrow from them. Chaos reigns and the demons are having a party in our government. Minds ablaze with hate and blood in the streets. This country has lost it’s character and is now in punishment for an increase in sins.
    You can’t grow food in a desert. Read in the Book what causes the creation of deserts and wasteland. A people who were blessed to bless the world has now become a curse to the world. No wonder rich people are moving to emerging third world countries. This nation is cursed.

    May the sister get better in time
    Maybe if more black’s gave up tv and all this so-called funny entertainment of men hollering and screaming in wigs and dresses.
    Plus all these other slave coon rappers calling each of us the n word and the b word.
    Maybe the kkk would say leave these people alone.
    They love themselves.
    But as long as black people keep on taking part in coonery and other monkeyshine twisted behavior.
    The kkk and the police will keep on abusing the divine human rights of afrikans and black’s world wide.

    I just went on line and read where her mother said: SHE WAS NOT wearing an Obama shirt. But KKK was written on her car which means it was a hate crime. My prayers go out to her and her family. How sad in this day & age this is still going on. Where does it stop, when does it stop, if ever. Only when the White Man realizes God did not create just them but lots of others as well, and he placed us here for a reason, maybe just to see if we could get along with each other. I would suggest they read the Bible especially where it says “the sins of the fathers, shall be bestowed upon their children.” They came here from Europe and stole this country from the American Indian and placed them on reservations, They then went to Africa and stole our forefathers from their families, do they not think there is a price to be paid, they have been stealing their way in this world ever since. I don’t know what Bible the racist read but it can’t be the one I read.

    People get out and vote! Do not let the “pen & tilte” given to you define who you are! Continue to hold on to God and the racism matter will come to a head. Only in america would hate rise as high as it has. THANKS TO THE POLITICIANS the race war is almost at hand.

    HOAX !

    Madonna CONSTANTINE. (fake noose at Columbia U)

    Tawana BRAWLEY. (fake rape in Da Bronx)

    …and the list goes on.

    African Americans with their tiny semi-simian hybrid brains that weigh 120 grams on average less than other races’ brains on average (the One Banana Difference!), as per Dunning Kruger, are simply too dim-witted to understand that the whole Victimization thing, the whole Cry Wolf Whitey Be Bad thing… is no longer working!

    People both white and black are catching on, alas.

    So please, Black America, give up the whining already. You are not as smart as people of other races. Because your ancestors took longer – over tens of thousands of years – to divorce themselves from the monkeys and other primates of Africa, that we all evolved from. In a word: your ancestors mated with primates, and that is why you have a facial angle of 72 degrees, compared with 85 degrees for white euros, and 60 degrees for a common orangutan. See erectuswalksamongst.us to cross reference.

    Please keep in mind also that when European explorers first showed up to explore Africa, not a single European had ever seen a gorilla, a monkey, or a baboon. In Africa these creature were relatively plentiful; as a result (See David Brion Davis’s “Of Inhuman Bondage” ) white Europeans understandably tended to associate Negroes with primates. Or rather, white Euros failed to comprehend the distinction between the two.

    Also: When European explorers discovered Africa and its peoples for the first time, they had never up until then discovered a human-like population that was so primitive that said population had never invented the wheel, for goodness sakes. Never mind a written language; never mind a numbers system; never mind a systemic religion. And the list goes on.

    Look at the facts, folks, before you start calling me a terrible anti-african racist. I am NOT.

      @snagglepuss:

      I see I have to school another crazy cracker…AGAIN! LOL

      I laugh at you NIGorant azzholes with your bullsh**t his-tory/his-LIE! You’re very comical, and stupid at the same time.

      Any way, let’s get to work: It is a known fact, that you people evolved from monkeys and apes [go look at YOUR his-story/LIE books! You did this when you came out of the bowels of the Black Woman Goddess, who shYtted you out of her azz. This is why you demon/devils are fascinated with s*it and urine…”golden” showers and “mud” wrestling!!!

      How could you demon/devils ‘FIND’ Afrika when you were not even BORN until 6,000 years ago? OURstory goes back over 7 million years!!! So, do the math apeboy! The FIRST bones of a cracker were found in the caves of the caucasus mountains, which were only 6-7,000 years YOUNG! The oldest bones IN THE WORLD WERE OVER 7 MILLION PLUS YEARS OLD FROM AFRIKAN SKELTONS FOUND IN AFRIKA!!!

      YOU ARE JOHNNY-COME-LATELY-albinoid/caucasoid.

      You turned pale when the Mighty Afrikans ran your pale naked azzes out of Kemet, and that’s when you went and hid in the cages having s*x with your dogs and other animals. This is why you beasts are so hairy, and animalistic toward real HUE-MANS…BLACK FOLKS!

      By the way, when the Mighty Afrikans, who civilized you demon/devils found you freaks, you were walking on all fours, like your dogs. They taught you how to stand up-right! You even had a stinch so bad, they had to show you how to bathe! Not only that, they taught you how to cook because you were eating raw meat! Okay? Y’all freaks still like blood running out of your meat to this day!!!

      Now, here’s the killer! You freaks were having s*x with each other, and you freaks/greeks introduced les*bianism and h*om*s*xuality to the world! AFRIKANS NEVER PRACTICED THIS TYPE OF ANIMAL BEHAVIOR.

      You albinoid greeks/freaks became pale by having s*x with each other and the rest is OURstory! This is why you have dog-like hair, dog-like big ears, and dog-like noses by having s*x with your DOGS, which you claim are your BEST friends. You also, had s*x with monkeys and apes, and this is why you are pale and have big ears and skin like a monkey!

      When you came out of the caves, you were mummbling like apes and monkeys, and to this day, when you go to the zoo, you visit your cousins…the monkeys and billygoats! Remember, you crackers LOVE to climb mountains.

      I saw a program on the History Channel, and a caucasoid ape was eating ROAD KILL!!! He hasn’t bought meat from a store in 15 years because he eats ROAD KILL!!! If that ain’t an animal, I don’t know what IT is!!!

      Later, you ape-gal or ape-boy, or whatever!

    Of course it was hate. I have found,though, that it is self destructive to trade hate for hate. No, I am not saying you should love these guys, or forgive them or any such noble acts but focus on something positive somewhere. When I read these kind of stories and feel the hate building up in me I grab my guitar and play some beautiful love song. Sometimes I eat chocolate but I have to go easy on that.
    Stay cool, posters, and don’t let this cruel world get you down.

    First, I hope that she makes a speedy recovery and that her family goes for the jugular on these men who did such a nasty, devilish crime.

    Now, if anyone don’t think that this debate has alot to do with the economy, foreign policy, taxes, the middleclass and our future in education and competitiveness, then it is a problem. But it is also a problem if you don’t realize that this election is also about color. After watching the presidential debate last night. I am more convinced. For Mitt to switch up his whole campaign, and lie on national television in front of millions agreeing with every aspect and policy President Obama stands for shows strategy with an ultimate agenda. The white conservative hates Obama and the fact that he IS a black man makes them cringe. So they will tell lies to get the vote that will take him out of office even after we have seen how he has made changes in this country. We are coming out of two wars. And anyone knows following a war is a depression. He has effortlessly worked and fought for better rights for the middle class Americans. But has been pushed back by the republicans (in many reports throughout this campaign) that have stated that basically slavery is the way to go.

    Here is a women who unfortunately had to be on the other end of the racisism that clearly still exists. When it comes to the republicans, this race is not focused on the people, our country and economics. Its based on color.

    To Onesilverbac and Lynn, why do you two even bother coming on this blog to spew your crud. We all know that there are issues in the black community, but there are even more issues in the Racist community. And if you think for one minute that Black people coming together is going to stop that evil plague with the white race, you are fooling yourself and trying to fool us in simultaneously. Why is it so hard for you to find the story about the KKK “silverbac”, or is it that you decided to challenge Derrick, before actually researching for yourself. I don’t know what race you are, but if you are not black, please take your analysis and fax it to someone who cares. And if you are black, you are a poor excuse for a black person. Lynn, you are just a non-factor. You could be a white woman, a white gay male or a TROLL. Either way you reek of a sad sad person, who has no purpose in life but to be a complete and utter bore to the world.

They shall get back what they sow. “What you wow so shall you reap…vengeance is Mine sayeth The Lord..” The Lord helps those who help themselves. “…take our nation back…” Wake up Herman Cain, Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Micheal Steele, etc.

    Is it any wonder why we have race problems within our own race, when we have people like Boyce Watkins, claiming that Obama, only became President because he was half white, or half black. If this is true, then it was alright that Clarence Thomas, got appointed to the Supreme Court, because he was black, and it was alright when Boyce himself, was hired to teach at Syracuse university, because he was black. Yes, there is a racial problem in America, and it begins in our own race.

      Woman Set on Fire by the KKK Still Hasn’t Received Much National Media Coverage
      ——————————————-

      Read the d*amn the story and get back with me. You crackers always trying to catch me in a LIE!!!

      I COME WITH PROOF and TRUTH…remember that!!!

      “The letters “KKK” were scratched into her car and the FBI is investigating the case as a possible hate crime.”

      “So far, most of the national media hasn’t picked up Sharmeka’s case. ABC News finally posted something on its website, but to our knowledge, CNN, Fox and the major networks haven’t covered the story.”

      Now, what was your question?

  21. Onesilverbac

    October 22, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Voting has nothing to do with this, the President can not change anything, and may be the cause of some of it.

    Whites are not the only racist, we have our share also and we all know it!

    Want to get past this stuff? Economic Power is the key! When you can hire and fire a million of them because you are the owners of the business then you will see the decline not over night but as the realization sinks in that black people are not just those with their hand out or marginal with not a lot to offer, but a major contributors to the overall society, business, banking, construction, science, finance rather than basketball and hip hop! Own some land!

    Get your sons to pull up their pants, have your daughters demand respect. Tell them to put down the games and do the home work, stress education!! We are better off than any other group of Black people in the World; yet we are nearly as great as we can be, not even close, you want respect, you want to stop racism? We all know what it will take, to few are will to make the real effort that is required!

    I also am sorry about the young lady in Louisiana, don’t let the tragic actions of some fool stop us, it should not be something that has us screaming racism but something that makes our race strive for greatness!

    Race and racism is alive and well in this Country in spite of our elective Black President. White folks are just as vicious and evil as they ever were during the slavery period. Oh, there are pockets of White People who practice some form of civility but they far and few between. Black Folk and other minorities are forewarned that White People don’t care about you. Before the President could sit down in the Oval Office they wanted to make him a one term President. They have disrespected him and lied about him continuously and will do or say anything to hinder progress in this Country. The White House is not the place for a Black Man. Oh, we have something for them…we’ve come too far to be turn back now. Black folk have earned their place at the table of power in America and we will exercise that power or die trying. We have the right to walk the trails and pathways of this Country without being attack by pack of evil, cowardly and despicable gang who try to take away our rights. My heart and prayers goes out for this beautiful woman.

    Linching is alive and well in the south again. Trayvon Martin case is a good example of how whites attitudes towards blacks haven’t changed much. They still view blacks as 3/5 humans like in the past. Blacks are not considered to be a “whole” person in this country, so black life is meaningless.
