What's Happening In Your World

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

Sharmeka Moffitt has endured an absolute nightmare.  The 20-year old woman was walking through a park recently when three men approached her, setting her on fire.   The woman has suffered burns to half of her body and is in critical condition after police responded to her 911 call on Sunday night.

The letters “KKK” were scratched into her car and the FBI is investigating the case as a possible hate crime.  It has been reported by some media outlets that she was pointed out for the attack because she was wearing a pro-Obama t-shirt.  This hasn’t been confirmed, but it does appear quite likely that she was attacked for being black.

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.  Thousands of well-wishers have flocked to the “Prayers for Sharmeka” Facebook fan page, which has gotten nearly 20,000 likes, and the creators of the page are stating that they still haven’t seen much major media coverage.

Moffitt told police that the men covered her in flammable liquid before setting her on fire.  The incident took place in Winnsboro, a town in Louisiana.   Moffitt says that the men were wearing white hoods when they approached her, but she could not identify their race.  No suspects have been found as of  yet and the park has no surveillance cameras.

Franklin Sheriff Kevin Cobb described the incident as “a horrific event.” He also pledges to thoroughly investigate the case.

Otis Chisley, the president of the local branch of the NAACP, said that he has reached out to the family and wants to proceed with caution before presuming that the incident was racially-motivated.

It’s prevalent throughout Louisiana,” he said. “It’s hidden but it exists.”

  1. This is so sad. Sad because in a country where we are supposed to be free, but stii cant have ur own opinion… And if she was white it would have already aired on 60 minutes, nancy grace, cnn if it was the other way around…God bless this world

  2. this is crazy racism is still alive in this world….Sharmeka Moffitt's story should have been on every news feed in America.

  3. possible hate crime? it IS a hate crime!

  4. This is just pure hate and evil. It’s disgust me that people could be so heinous & cruel to do something like this to another human being -Because she wore an Obama t-shirt???…REALLY!?!..WHAT THE FU*K!!!! GET REAL!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???…YOU RACIST ASS SON OF A BITCHES!!! What could this woman have done to you to deserve this?…And what idiot would form his ignorant ass lips to say or even utter that this was anything but a racially motivatd crime?…white hoods!…kkk written on her face! C’MON PEOPLE IT AIN’T ROCKET SCIENCE!!! If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck it ain’t a mongoose!!!…OK!!! To try & say that this is anything but a racially motivated crime is ridiculous & insulting to this beautiful black woman! Don’t piss on my head & then try to tell me it’s raining…BULLSHIT!!!…This ain’t nothing but racist ass honkeys doing the serpents work. To her vendication these racist asswholes will soon have an eternal lake of fire to rest in of their own!!! LET GOD BE TRUE!!!

  5. I want to hear more on the investigation where she supposedly set herself on fire… remember, it is in the south, so I am not sure what to believe.

  6. Bermuda is praying for you

  7. Hope they get some leads into this case. Blessings to you Sharmeka

  8. Oh my goodness that is awful, we have not progressed as far as we think we have. Thanks for making us aware of this awful situation.

  9. What happen to this young lady was horrifying. And, we can massacre all them children and, women in Waco, TX but u mean to tell me our government can't deal with these hate groups. That's bullshit!!!! God bless u love and, Ur family!!

    • Now they're saying she lied! What, she set herself on Fire? And wrote KKK on her car for attention!!!!

  10. Unfortunately racism initiates more racism….so on an so on. Why would any person; white, green, black, pink, yellow believe they have the right to set a HUMAN BEING on fire?
    It sickens me to believe that in 2012, almost 2013, that we’re still discussing this stupidness? Why not meet someone, get to know the PERSON and then make your decision whether or not that person is someone you would like to be in your life? How bout that? It really could be that simple.
    I live in the South but am from the North. I wasn’t raised to hate (thank you mom and dad) and never experienced the “division” of people till I moved down here.
    Get the “f” over it racists. Your ignorance does not have to be carried on generation after generation. That’s what it boils down to; ignorance. Why not educate yourselves?
    Our President was elected by the people. Like it or not. Why’s he gotta be black or white? Why can’t the man be the man!!!
    Folks don’t respond negatively to dumb azzes when they write anal, uneducated posts. It only feeds their stupidity and negativity. Pray for them. Really – I mean that. They answer to the same man above that we do.

  11. This is turning crazy … Now there are reports that she set herself on fire!!! Check this out: http://www.aol.co.uk/video/la-woman-may-have-set-self-on-fire-police-say/517515673/

    READERS, PLEASE OVERLOOK ERRORS IN MESSAGES.SOMETIMES, THE MESSAGES ARE SO UNBELIEVABLE AND IN MY OWN FRUSTRATION,I MAY SPELL A WORD(S) WRONG. IT IS truly making me wonder about
    the media.
    Perhaps, we need all the facts,before the messages are posted.On the other hand, if there needs to be information put out to the public,why does it seem that it comes, so much later. WE read these posts and get angry, frustrated and respond. Then to read that , too often the errors are already causing outcries. Please give us accurate messages.
    It is too much to read and then to find out, that we are praying or speaking out against, what seems to be acts of violence,or even racisim. Can we get the TRUTH?

  13. Local news reported today girl admitted to lying. She sd she set herself on fire…awful!

  14. lillian. williams

    I,am starting to wonder about this posts and others.
    I just read this on Your Black world,but then went to another site and within five(5) minutes, another message said the police are saying she did this to herself.I find that so unbelievable.
    Why, would she do such a horrilic thing to herself!
    I do not want to really think too hard about this,but I have to question the vaildity of the report. This is Louisanna.but it is not just that state, it is the state of the mind.
    My prayers still go out to this young women.I wonder, what would lead anyone to set themselves or others on fire.
    This is America! I want to believe in the justice system,I want to be believe that if someone is suffering, to the extent of wanting to take his or her own life, that there is help,before it gets that point.
    I look at talk shows that deal with abuse and violence and women,children and young males and men , who suffer from so many problems.
    Twenty years old,WHY WOULD SHE DO? IF THIS IS TRUE, WHAT PAIN WAS EXPERIENCING, TO DO THIS.
    ON THE OTHER HAND, IF THIS JUST A POLICE VERSION TO COVER UP THE TRUTH,LORD HAVE MERCY ON THAT TOWN
    I hope the truth, will come out and that she receives the help she needs.
    My prayers are still for her recovery and for justice, if this is report is not as it is being written.
    How many are suffering in silence.I wish I were a lawyer or minister, or maybe even a police officer, to help.
    I can only really pray for her and others,but yes, even if what the media is now saying, that she did this to herself,WHERE WAS HER HELP.SURELY, SHE WOULD HAVE GIVEN SOME INDICATION THAT SHE WAS TROUBLED OR FRIGHTENED.
    IT TROUBLES ME SO MUCH, THAT I HAVE TO STOP READING ALL OF THESE POSTS.I DO PRAY AND CONTRIBUTE, AS I CAN TO THE SOCIAL AGENCIES, THAT MAY HELP . TOO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE ARE SUFFEREING.
    WHAT IS THE NEXT GENERATION GOING TO LOOK FORWAD TO, MORE VIOLENCE, MORE ABUSE, MORE HATERED, MORE DEATHS. SOMETIMES, IT IS AS IF WE ARE AT WAR,HERE IN OUR REAT COUNTRY. AGAIN LORD HAVE MERCY.
    TO THIS YOUNG LADY, AND SO MANY OTHERS, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW, THAT “YOU ARE IN OUR PRAYERS” AND THAT YOU CAN OVECOME. FOR NOW, PLEASE GET BETTER!
    MAYBE,YOU WILL GET TO TELL YOUR SIDE,PRAYER AND CANDLES ARE BEING SAID AND LIT FOR YOUR RECOVERY.
    I JUST PRAY, YOU ARE NOT THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB.
    YOU ARE BUT A CHILD, YOURSELF, ALTHOUGH 20 YEARS OLD,AND FOR WHATEVER REASON, YOU ARE CRYING FOR
    HELP.

  15. lillian. williams

    My prayers are with this young woman.How could anyone even begin to think she would do this to herself.
    My question, is how was she able to call for help and how long did it take for her get it.
    Yes, there def. needs to be an outcry,as with any acts of VIOLENCE against another human being, or even animals.
    I ALSO question, why are so many cases of violence ‘being hidden from the public media.
    Did she get professional counseling.
    I would imagine she is afraid,to say too much.
    I pray for this country,but there is so much hatred, that the words of our Constitution, have almost become a joke.
    In all cases, I pray for those who have been abused, violated in any form,injustices,but sometimes, Prayer, is not enough.
    Lord have mercy and may these ,who did this ,be brought to justice.
    Again, makes us wonder, what is happening to human kindness. I think, unfortunately, the movies and videos and just evil has taken over, in the media and people do things just to see what will happen.
    I can not imagine her pain.
    So, I continue to pray for all. Is there love anywhere Where are the ministers, of this town.Where are the public officials. where is the law enforcement.What are we becoming and to what purpose are these acts being commited.

  16. The birch set herself on fire. Police found that she scratched the slurs on her car, then doused herself with flammable liquid and lit it off. Disgusting display!!! What the hell did she think this would do!?!? Lets finger some innocent guys for this assault and see what kind of monetary gains I can get!!! ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!!!

    • Anita Kaye Jimenez-Weaver

      It is AMAZING, the things STUPID IGNORANT "PEOPLE" will do for attention! STOOPID BITCH!!!!

  17. well, we all know why it didn't catch media till now, eh? The police are claiming she set herself on fire.. it's on msnnow.

    http://now.msn.com/sharmeka-moffitt-lousiana-woman-may-have-faked-hate-crime

  18. Now it's being reported she lied. Charge her butt throw her under the jail

  19. She set herself on fire. There was no attack.

  20. Regardless of who did what I think its sad and twisted!

  21. MSN is stating that she burned her self and said tha klan members did the deed to her.

  22. LaToya Moore -Simon

    SMH at this world….prayers to her and her family..

  23. Derrick A. Capers

    An astute FB user" Brandy Hinchmen".
    brought this too my attention,
    Please read ;.
    Copy & Paste, http://www.wwltv.com/news/Police-Badly-burned-woman-admits-she-set-herself-on-fire-175509261.html.
    Thank You, Brandy Hinchmen!
    I thought we were done with the "Tawana Brawley's.
    " seems nowadays, everyone is looking for their "15mins".
    SMDH!
    Despite this,
    Otis Chisley is still not off the hook, his position & title requires greater vigilance!
    Not no, I'll get it in a minute!

  24. Where is it saying that? I cant find it anywhere?

  25. She admitted setting herself a blaze.

  26. It is fake. She admitted to setting herself on fire.

  27. Now some people are saying this is fake????? I am confused.

  28. Very sad. Prayers go to this woman. On a side note about Obama though – if you are truly against racism, then don’t vote for someone (Obama) just because of skin color. Obama is half white and not share the same African-American history. He identifies himself with his father’s side – the DEVELOPING NATIONS (3rd world)….When he says he wants to bridge the gap between rich and poor – he is referring to bridging the gap between USA and 3RD WORLD NATIONS. Read his book, “Dreams from My Father” and watch the documentary “Obama 2016″ ………….. By Obama’s standards, everyone in America is “Rich”. He is not trying to help America, he is trying to bring it down while bringing up the 3rd world nations. His heart belongs to the 3rd world, to Africans….to all 3rd world nations…. not African-Americans and not any Americans at all.

  29. It has been reported that she set herself on fire. There was suspicion from the beginning. That why no one jumped on this, they were waiting for the facts.

  30. Again why are you surprised? Racism is alive and well thank you….

  31. “Being cautious.” PLEZZZ, give me a break, Otis! Obviously, the NAACP is losing it “grip” on the realities of racism and has become weak and fearful. Not only in LA, but in TX, FL, and PA as well. Brutal hate crimes have spread nationally! Yet,the media avoids reporting it because they don’t want to set off racial unrest. But, who is going to speak for the victims of violence! Who?!!! No Justice! No Peace!

  34. Someone tell me if this was an anti-semetic incident would be in a media near blackout? OK THEN WTF!~!~! This young woman was f#(^ing burned by these assailants….why is it not a mainstream media incident! You know as well as I! Please I am begging my FB friends to share this article and pass it around! Please Vote! People don't care because the percpetion is that Black people don't vote! So lets Vote and win this DAMN election!

  35. She may have done this to herself.

  36. Turns out it was all fake, look it up. Her fingerprints and DNA were found all over the lighter fluid and the lighter. Also, her DNA was found on the car were the letters KKK were written. And her on parents said she wasn't sexually assaulted nor was she wearing a pro Obama shirt.

  37. Yes, Nancy would gave eaten her up Banika… shows why things like this still go on in America…the old roots die hard… fuckers!

  38. It still does and it goes both ways!

  39. We started raising money for her here in Portland, Or at this link.
    http://www.indiegogo.com/help-sharmeka

    or you can sent your donation here. Please help and share!

    • I'm not sure what to make of this.
      http://www.franklinsun.com/news.php?id=5412
      But hey, someone is still suffering third-degree burns, and the fundraiser is still there. Proceeds will still go toward covering the costs of hospital bills.

    • Hmmm, well I don't trust the news. Raising money to help still feels right.

    • " It was less than a minute from the time the call from Moffitt came into the 911 center that officers from the Winnsboro Police Department and the Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office were on the scene "
      Less then a minute? Really?? That seems hard to believe which makes me wonder what else is faulty. More facts should come out soon but still a very sad event.

    • Wow, sad! Streaming now, it was self inflicted they are saying now.
      http://www.ksla.com/story/19895772/streaming-live

    • We need better health care in this country including mental health. Poor woman, can't imagine what drove her to do this. :(

    • Lataya Dailey, It also says her fingerprints were on the lighter fluid, and doesn't say whether the DNA on the toothpaste belonged to her. Gibbs and Grissom would have a field day with the guy that closed this case. :P

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Lataya Dailey You are SO right not to believe everything you read! ;-)

    • Thomas Spychalski

      And that is regardless of what this situation turns out to be…I would think there has to be some aspect of a mental issue here?

  40. Its stops when ALL Black people stand together & STOP these things from happening to US!

  41. every body should just rush in the kkk camps and go at it and end this shit.

  42. What if she was white?hmmm

  43. caroline your comment about classism is true, but growing up poor and white is nothing like growing up poor and black….u have a chance in the system if u make it work for u…and its not just america's view of u its the whole world. They associate black people with slavery and that stain cannot be removed….there's no more genocide for jewish people, but they never cease in speaking out about the injustice they were subjected to…and if someone speaks out and tells a jew" enough already we know about the holocaust" they are anti semitic, but when black people talk about racism no one wants to be reminded. I am a proud black woman so I feel you may be racist at least on a sub conscience level..u seem like u can't empathize properly this wz a senseless act of violence and she was targeted for wearing a t shirt that wz pro Obama.

    • Thomas Spychalski

      I can see your points but the stain can be removed it has to be able to or we are all in for a never ending cycle…

  44. F***k all white folks. Don’t trust them. Never have and never will.

  45. This Shit is Jst plain racisim I Dnt wanna hear other wise Obama shirt on a blackwoman 3 men in white hoods come on thts got whitemen or woman written all over it justice come on naacp and the new BPP we need ya on this

  46. This story deserves National Coverage because this sh*t will continue to happen if it’s not brought to light!!!!!! So now we cannot wear what we want because of racist attacking us, What next??? Screw this racist country. They don’t deserve anything but grief for all the crap so many Nationalities have had to put up with…….Let them have their white president, and see if he does not sell the entire Nation to China for a buck…!

  47. Please! Whites are vicious?! Hello,what is the population of jails all over America? Black! Black people are the violent ones! Can't speak properly,don't discipline their children,abuse the system,murder,rape,steal,etc…I'm not saying whites,Hispanic,and others do not do these things but the majority of the these things are done by blacks!! They are like God damn animals,it makes me sick! Go cry to Jesse Jackson like you always do!

    • Thomas Spychalski

      This is not the way, you first have to realize that the although I agree that today too many people are relying on a system and are segregated in areas that are unsafe, you also have to realize who created that segregation..the American government.

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Ghettos were created to keep people in and never let them out but not just based in racial hatred but rather based on the fact that having race, gender and social wars is a way to keep money flowing into other things, like missiles and the pockets of the corp banking elite.

      No one take this attitude with the banks when they got bailed out by the fed….

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Now, my personal feelings are that race does not exist, it is all just a game that we play and BOTH sides continue to play it. We are raised on our movies, music and media that presents a difference that does not really exist.

      I once had a black gentleman come into a store that I worked for and bought a poor boy and under his breath he mumbles "I bet you don't even know what a poor boy is do ya?"
      So I explained to him that I had no car, had two bad legs, am broke 90% of the time and that while his shoes looked like the latest Nikes mine were from bloody Payless.

      Point being we continue to push these values on both sides of this false divide and until we just STOP doing it and igniting fires that can never go out the entire Human race will never be free.

    • Thomas Spychalski

      STOP the racist crap,l then STOP the reverse racism I have experienced on the other end of the equation and then just maybe then we can get down to the business of being Human and being able to have a world not dictated by hate…

      You see, for every negative comment, for every white person who uses a racial slur, for every black person who hates whites so bad they won't even talk to them (I have exp this too), we create another soul who will keep pushing this shit till the end of the world…

  48. Wow, don't trust all white folks? This couldn't be more judgemental. Each and every person should be judged based off their character, not the color of their skin. My heart goes out to this woman and her family…

  49. What happened to this person is horrible, and hopefully her attackers will be brought to justice.

    YourBlackWorld.net: Fox News and CNN have both reported on this. A good way to google for site specific results is as follows (in example for this article):

    site:foxnews.com "Sharmeka Moffitt".

    MSNBC.com pulls no results this way, but searching Sharmeka Moffitt through that site's Bing engine produces 3 MSNBC articles.

    Also, Google News produces 1,040 results (as of this comment) from news sources such as CBS, Huffington Post, International Business Times, etc.

    I understand that "Still Hasn’t Received Much National Media Coverage" is a headline that will get attention for your article, but in this case I feel the headline directly contrasts with what can be uncovered with 5 minutes of internet research.

    With respect,

    Robert Kurtz

  50. My Prayers go out to her and her family. It is so disheartening to realize that in 2012 there are still backward ass people that target you because of your race. I hope that they find these guys and put them in prison with the rest of the skins and kkk members.

  51. Any body that set that person on fire should go to jail and not come out.

  52. azeleyes10261@gmail.com asked to come here they brought us here to this racist America all jobs being taken away god going to take care of it all!@!@!!

  53. For all those saying “This should not be tolerated”.. what do you mean? this has been TOLERATED in the U.S. for centuries.

  54. Ernestine Fletcher

    It is shameful that this story is not posted on the front of every major headline.

    • It's even more shameful that people don't realize the KKK was started as a militia by the Democratic party. I'd love to find a day when black people wake up and realize that they're being led into the gas chamber by the DNC.

    • Get a freaking grip and read some history. The KKK was started by six veterans of the Confederate Army led by Nathan Bedford Forrest, who was not politically motivated. The second coming of the Klan was led by white Protestants (stalwarts of the Republican Party); the third resurrection was led by groups opposing the Civil Rights Movement and desegregation. They are now listed by the SPLC and the FBI as a terrorist group.
      Saying that the DNC is operating a gas chamber for African-Americans is total bullshit and subversive itself. Why be part of the problem, Whistler, when you can be part of the solution? Spreading bullshit like what you spout only leads to more bullshit–and it sounds like you are full of it.

  55. I truly believe that even some white folks had secretly hoped Obama would/could really ‘change’ their conditions for the better. He has done nothing except refresh racism! ‘Blacks’ were not politically sophisticated enough to reject the DCN’S ‘selection’ of an unknown…who stated himself that ‘he’s not the president of black people.’ Sad as all hell…

    • That’s totally ridiculous! White Republicans were meeting the day of Obama’s Inauguration to develop strategies to oppose anything he does, regardless of whether the country is helped or hurt! Obama was called a LIAR during his State of The Union Address, a first! Then the redneck from South Carolina was rewarded…$1 Million for doing so!!! Divide & Conquer is the Republican/Corporate strategy. Other countries are laughing at the “dumbing-down” of the U.S. What world are you living in??? Obama has tried & tried to bring the parties together, but the Repubs walk out of meetings, basically spit in his face (some Dems too).

  56. Even tho we got eyes on us shit still happen to us we are special creatures of God the same God he don't want us to be balanced in American fund hate crimes which we control I can't even finish what I want to say cause im very angry

  57. Racism hasn't gone anywhere.

  58. This is a shame! It nds some real media attention

  59. wow,, so sad, what types of animals,, do this to a human being?,, color, politics?,, geez,, my prayers go out to the young lady, her families, and may those losers no matter what color they are be caught n hung by their buster browns.

  60. question, if she noticed their white hoods and couldn't identify their race why does everyone assume they are white? I guess I'm just tired of the racist bullshit.whom ever did this needs to be hung bottom line. doesn't matter what color lets just band together and get these people. everyone on here has a comp so lets just start posting her story…..

    • I guess people assume the assailants are white because they were wearing white hoods and KKK was scratched on the side of the victim's car. I have never heard of Blacks, Asians, or Hispanics being members of the KKK. However it is quite possible that non-whites could be responsible, and were using the hoods and the KKK as a way to throw the authorities off their trail. Whatever the case may be, I am definitely sending up prayers for this young woman's healing as well as the capture of the monsters who did this to her. I don't have to guess–I KNOW I am tired of the racist b.s.

    • Thomas Spychalski

      I LOVE all the clear rational thought that went tinot this little part of the comments…awesome!

    …don’t want to report this story because this was DEFINITELY an act of HATE and racism! Ikeep telling y’all racism ain’t going NO WHERE! And, you negroids got the nerve to let crackers call y’all racists!!! PITIFUL

    How many negroids do you see doing this type of animalistic behavior to crackers…NONE! Because their too d**mn SCARED!

    Hell, y’all negroids too scared to SPEAK up to these worthless devils, let alone do unto them, like they do unto us?

    HATE ON HATERS…HATE ON!!!!

    I DON’T GIVE A HUSKY F**VCK WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME

    • And your point is ??????????

      • He has no point. He likes to read his own typing.

        He answered his own contradiction! “How many negroids do you see doing this type of animalistic behavior to crackers…NONE! Because their too d**mn SCARED!”

        Right how many have you (Derrick) set fire too??

        I don’t think Derrick is really black. To make such a statement setting himself apart from his own denoted lunacy!

        • @old-cooner:

          Far from being a nasty cracker, you white n*gger!!!

          The problem is…you wish you were BLACK!!!

          You pale, albinoid cracker; the ORIGINAL n*ggers are/were crackers!!!

          DIDIN’T THINK I KNEW, DID YA?

        • Derrick has been plastering these boards with his crazy rants for years. If there was a story about the price of replacement shoelaces in Peoria, Illinois, Derrick could find a way to mention the words “negroid”, “cracker”, and “devils” in his commentary.

  63. She's at da hospital around da corner from my house and we are calling for all people of faith to pray for her. Winnsboro is a klan run city that's why it's not on a national tv media. I hate to say this but if Pres Obama wins again this is only going to get worse. We must pray for her our bro Pres Obama and our people because its not in da news but white people are preparing for a race war. We are the last to know because we have all kinds of crap on our mind, not watching da enemy plot against us. We must come together as 1 and stand together with each other. Gather up your loins people and be ready to defend what's yours. And I pray da blessing and protection of AD-NAI ELOHIM over all people. LOVE Y'ALL

  64. This is what i'm talkin bout bs like this

  65. Gerald Colin Arthur Layne Sr.

    This should be labeled an act of terrorism, but that won't happen because these low self esteem elected officials and community activist are completle effin worthless.

    • This is an act of domestic terrorism and the perpetrators need to be treated as domestic terrorists. End of story.

    • Gerald Colin Arthur Layne Sr.

      This lying POS needs to be buried under a jail. And the DA needs to makes an example of her.

  66. My God!! GET THIS STORY ON THE NEWS NOW!! If you don't think we still live in a racist country, you have ROMNESIA!!

    • What the fuck

    • Of course racism still exists! Human beings are animals and I am always shocked by how human being can be so cruel and viscious to others. Just knowing there are good people out there too is my only solace.

      Guys this is bigger then Mitt Romney and the race issue is a bit more expansive then this.
      Point is is this is 2012 and this has all gone on far too long. Only we as a collective can halt this oppression that is happening to all colors..it is a matter of rich and poor and powerful and weak…not black and white.

      Do you now why the Southern cotton farmers wanted slavery during the era of the civil war? Not hatred of blacks, although that was there, but the loss of cheap labor in the cotton fields that meant that the profit would drop if they had to pay the black workers.

      It still happens today and is getting worse for all races and genders. Look at the unemployment rates, look at the violence and look at the wars we propagate in foreign lands.

      I know I sounds preachy but today I am just so tired of all of this hatred and debate based on something so immaterial so biased, stupid and a non issue then the color of people's skin.

    • Thanks Brandt! Now, I'm even more upset! What the hell would make her do that to hetself?

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Yeah I had heard this too, this is just sad…yes Monique either way this is very nasty business indeed!

    • Hay how are fairing with the after storm? give me a call at bvsj so we know that your ok!

  67. Bullshit, color in this country is a major factor and always will be, a little Becky or Cody growing up poor is no comparison to being hated by, ignorant , fearful "Popatty Peckawoods" who don't have home training or proper work ethics to succeed in life.

  68. Its so sad that people are brain washed and have all that angry towards other races but deep down they really hate themselves and they taking out angry on other people I feel like that these time are people are brainwashed and don't have a mind of their own

  69. Thus election has brought about a race war

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Prhyde…it has been around long before the election, but yes, this and the last election were designed to be racially motivated. They poke us with a stick to see how high we will jump. I don't jump.

    • it shows just how deep racism still runs in this country, that merely by running for President (and horrors! winning!) is considered to be 'designed to be racially motivated'.
      that poor young lady! i pray that she will make a full recovery and that the cowards who did this are brought to justice.

    • I know it's be around for a long time ,BUT not the way it's about to be! This election is not going to look good no matter which way it goes and it's because of racism!!
      It's gone get ugly before it gets better.

    • Perhaps it's time for Black People to 'Lock and Load' – just like everyone else! Whites have been spoiling for a race war, so lets take it to em! Why should Blacks always be the 'Peacekeepers'?

  70. MY PRAYERS GOES OUT TO THIS YOUNG WOMAN AND HER FAMILY! RACISM IS ALIVE AND WELL, JUST NEW FACES.PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO PROMOTE WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN OR PRACTICE, WITHOUT OTHER CULTURES TRYING TO CONDEMN BECAUSE THEY DON’T AGREE.ONLY A COWARD WOULD HAVE DONE SUCH A CRUEL THING! SOMEONE WHO IS INTIMIDATED!BY A TEE SHIRT OR A LADY WHO WORE A TEE SHIRT? SHE IS THE ONE WHO CARRIES THE POWER, AND THAT POWER WILL BRING HER THROUGH……

  71. Why. This. Shite. Again really. This. Is. Sick

  72. You have my sincere prayers, for I know this must be a trying time. May God’s blessings be upon you and your family! I will keep your whole family in my prayers!

  73. I do not like Louisiana and now I understand why. Let's be real. This was racially motivated. The threats started sometimevago and they are making good on them. WE still need to VOTE! If you can "early" vote that would've brest. Take care and caution. Do not draw attention. Just quickly and quietly make it a poll. The victory will be sweet. They are trying to scare you off. Please VOTE!

    • D.c.: Please do not presume that all of us from Louisiana are racists and/or prone to violence. The majority of folks I know (and I was born and raised in south Louisiana) abhor any kind of crime that preys on anyone regardless of their race. Let's be real–the actions of a few do not reflect the attitude of many.

    • D.C. , check out policeabuse.com amd watch the videos and cases about

    • What goes on with these cops hurting innocent travelers going thru Lousiana. A complete farce and violation of civil rights by devil monkeys waring thin tinsel!!!

  74. This is 2012 still Haters Unexceptionable to have this to happen they need to b caught à

  75. This is a sad situation its sad of all the hatred in the world

  76. wow……just horrible….. No coverage??? i wonder y

  77. Sad, but true racism still exist.

  78. Thoughts & prayers for healing for this young woman. This just goes to show that there is still ignorance in this world. So sad as we are all of the same God regardless of what name He may be called. I hope they catch these men so they can pay for what they did.

  79. Derrick A. Capers

    Lets keep it 100, Otis if its to Hot of the kitchen,
    Get the Hell Out of The Way!
    He's Scared!!

  80. so sorry, iwill pray for.

  81. If she was white she would be on Nancy Grace as well as every news channel . Wake up people racism still exists.

    • Doesn't matter what color you are. What matters is how much money you have.

    • Economics and Race go hand in hand. I mean look how wealth is distributed across the country. Do you think that was by accident Caroline?

    • I grew up a poor white kid on an Indian Reservation. Most of my 'white' friends are poor as well. So maybe I have a skewed view of it all. But I notice in the news, if you are wealthy, you get off in court, or you get a story about you. If you are not, then you better make a lot of noise to get noticed.

    • amen to that,

    • Time to put some of that Jena 6, Travon Martin pressure on white media to ensure justice for this sister and protection for hate crimes for all Americans. Michael Baisden, Rev. Al..where are you..time to plan another march in Lousiana.

    • You growing up poor and white has nothing do with racism. Sorry, Caroline. Ignoring racism doesn't make it go away, but perpetuates it.

    • Wrong- color definitely matters. Even if you have a billion dollars you are just a rich "N". and that money will not protect you.

    • Growing up poor is a result of the failure of capitalism. The wealthy elite will do everything they can to keep it that way. She has a point about that. Racism shows up in all cultures around the globe. Raising awareness and consciousness of the things that unify us will move us toward a better world. Respect.

    • Caroline Roesch – In this particular case Caroline, this woman was attacked because she was black – damn! Are you blind?? I agree to a certain extent that what you say is true being poor and white as it's challenges. However, RACISM still exists. How many poor black people lived in your neighborhood, ummm? Would they have been welcomed?

    • David Jones: The Jena 6 attacked a white boy who had nothing to do with the noose incident and beat him within an inch of his life, then lied to the authorities and said he had shouted a racial slur at them. They later admitted that they made up the part about the racial slur.
      Please don't compare apples to oranges. Violence and racism is still alive and well in Louisiana, but we don't need to re-ignite an old fire to realize the one before us is still ablaze.

    • Anna Martin: Wrong. It protected O.J. from a murder conviction.

    • Goes against a reality that Black people are experiencing everyday. Wealthy or not.

    • Caroline, I here what you are trying to say. However even if you are poor and white you have a better chance at getting national attention or lesser charges/sentencings in court than blacks. No matter how we try to disguise it racism will always exist.

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Caroline Roesch This is a different truth..another is..racism make money for lots of people…

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Shane Bernard Indeed they do but also look at the deeper purposes of this…they want us to hate, want us to be poor…food stamps are just bread lines on a card..the more they put us all down, the more they keep for the rich and the more control they gain…

    • ….Yeah of course people of any color with money will have it easier, but there is still a very real and definite thing called 'white privilege'.

    • Caroline Roesch sorry ,Caroline RACE MATTER'S ,reguardless of money ,I wish what you stated was true…

    • Thomas Spychalski

      Reed Sebastian Arroyo Which only exists because we allow (yes allow) it to continue…how many people are here? What can we do? we can stop it in the small ways that matter..on the ground, in daily activities and when we are confronted with a different race in day to day activities…

      We can stop the hatred at the top, but only if we can stop it at the bottom first.
      Sure, we cannot 'take down' those that have created this in one swoop but we can force them to take notice of us if we do 'right'.

      Then they will have a whole or majority of a population that thinks a certain way and they will conform to us as they will want to keep the machine going.

      A lot of our rights are being taken but the majority or mob will always rule in the end so the idea is just to be the mob for the right and not the mob for the wrong.

    • Coretta Smith Kimble

      Local News reported today girl sd she lied. She set self on fire.

    • Not she said she lied; "authorities" said she lied.

    • Caroline Roesch white folks are still very bigoted! Not only is it visable against President Obama but quitely in all professions in America. You are dangerous because your denial because your skin is white is like a bullet in the head of a black person. Don't be fooled! The majority of white folks in the south hate blacks.

    • Yes…we still live in the residue of racism even though race relations today are far more eased than they were back during the Jim Crow, reconstruction, and slave eras. Even so, some of us still don't understand the real ramifications of the devisiveness of racism. Some of our people (African Americans) believe that it's simply a matter of others despising our darker color. That is only a fraction of the equation, because the capitalists not only use skin color (racism) as a trump for acquiring their wealth. They also use class, where it's not only your dark skin color, but your dark economic situation be you white, black, red, brown, yellow, or white. It doesn't make them any difference whether it's you, or their mother. If they can get a buck out of it, they'll take it!!!

    • OOOOOO YES IT DOES MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU ARE,WHEN YOU BECOME BLACK AND WALK IN A BLACK PERSON SHOES,THEN AND ONLY THEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND.RACE MATTER IN EVERYTHING EVERTHING EVERYTHING.

    • Caroline Roesch WHEN WHITE AND BLACK PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHO REALLY RUN THE COUNTRY,WE WANT HAVE WHITE PEOPLE BURNING BLACKPEOPLE.WHEN WE REALLY UNDERSTAND.

  82. This is painful to read!

  83. This shouldn't be tolerated!

  84. Derrick A. Capers

    What the Hell does he think, this was a Welcome too the neighborhood greeting?
    Otis Chisley, the president of the local branch of the NAACP, said that he has reached out to the family and wants to proceed with caution before presuming that the incident was racially-motivated.
    WTH!

    • quite possibly, if they weren't careful they'll run into another lie. if white men can set Black ppl up to believe only with their eyes (on more than one occasion things have been proven to not be as they initially seem). they can't just go barreling in with assumptions. sadly, it could've been a set up…we won't know until someone investigates…but it is funny how something like this can happen (A HUMAN BEING WAS SET ON FIRE!) and it not make the news.

    • Derrick A. Capers

      It's a damn SHAME, this is 2012 not the 1800's, where witches were burned & Black ppl sold as well as bought WITH the beat rolling on!
      Were I in his position, I would've told them all"
      "NOT ON MY WATCH"!!!
      I'M HOLDING SOMEONE ACCOUNTABLE, WHERE'S THE SORRY A** MAYOR?
      THAT'S THE 1ST STOP, THEM & THE LOCAL NEWS!!

    • Derreck, the NAACP is a joke. I had to file a civil rights and fraud case against them to get my membership fees refunded because they didn't do jack shit to help me…they only like the high-profile cases and are truly ineffective ignoramuses who leave you stranded worse off than you were before you came to them for help…dumb-ass negroes as far as I'm concerned…all paper or glitz…no action!!

    • Derrick A. Capers

      Kim, Bottom Line There a Sham, just getting paid &Ink!
      Otherwise like you said"all paper or glitz…no action!!"
      Cronyism is the norm & prevalent in the City I live in!! SMDH!!

    • Derrick A. Capers

      Thank You, Brandy Hinchmen!
      I thought we were none with the "Tawana Brawley rape allegations" seems nowadays everyone is looking for their "15mins"
      SMDH!!!

    • If it were a white set on fire – this would get attention!
