Anti-Racist Activist Mugged By Black Man

Here's one of those feel good, gotta love it ironies of life that can't but help bring a smile to your day. An anti-racist white liberal bitch 'activist' gets whacked big-time by a black attacker. Ha ha ha!!

A white professor and anti-racist activist has been savagely beaten by an African-American man on the streets of Washington, DC just days before the inauguration of Barack Obama.

62-year old JoAnne Silver Jones was mugged on Jan. 16 while on her way to see her adopted daughter. Jones was beat on her head, arms and hands with a brick by her African-American male assailant during the attack, according to long-time friend Patricia Romney. “He beat her face so badly that she was unable to open her eyes, and one eye socket was torn by the blows,” she said.

Jones is an associate professor in the School of Human Services at Springfield College and director of the social work program. She has co-authored a paper titled, “Feminist Strategies for Teaching About Oppression” and was involved with “cross-cultural issues” including a 1999 incident at Amherst Regional High School where Puerto Rican students protested the school’s production of “West Side Story”.

Jones is still recovering at George Washington University Hospital after undergoing surgery on her skull and eye, but may be released this weekend, Romney said. “She can walk a little but is nauseous and headachy,” she said. “She’s a tough cookie, but this is totally traumatizing. It’s going to be a long way back.” Jones will need additional surgery on both hands, which are still bandaged from her elbows to her fingertips.

Romney said she is struck by what she termed the “paradox of it all” - a white anti-racism activist, the first African-American president and a mugger identified as African-American. To test Jones’ brain, doctors asked her the name of the new president, and she answered correctly. “This won’t shake any of her political activism,” Romney said of Jones. “She’s clear about what the issues are. This won’t sway her desire to keep fighting for social justice.”

I’m sorry but this brings me no satisfaction at all. (This time around I’m being serious). These liberals are that way because they are unsure, scared and disillusioned. I don’t think such an incident serves as a wake up call, quite contrarily.

If you press the "kak" button on the vending machine of life long enough you must not be surprised that the machine will deliver.

Agree with FishEagle. How could the attacker know what her views are? It could have been any white woman. Or white man. How can this make any white person "feel good"?

It does raise the question of how much more aggressive American blacks will become towards whites now that they have a half-black American president, than they already are.

It does raise the question of how much more aggressive blacks will become towards whites in America now that they have a half-black American, than they already are. We have all seen in South Africa how the black masses behave towards the minority once their own race is in power.
