Rumors are running rampant a targeted murder in a Delaware cemetery was racially motivated. [BREAKING: Black Male Hunts & Assassinates Elderly White Couple In Delaware Cemetery With Scoped Rifle, Red Elephants, May 9, 2020]

We will soon find out to the extent these rumors of a racial terror attack by a black male on a white married octogenarian couple are true or not, but the moment confirmation arrives will obviously be drowned by out by the cacophony coming from Brunswick, Georgia.

Nevertheless, the details are beginning to surface and this married octogenarian couple visiting their son’s gravestone at a veteran’s cemetery murdered by a black male utilizing a sniper rifle don’t exactly fit the corporate media narrative of innocent black bodies being mercilessly hunted down by rapid white supremacists.

Married couple, 85 and 86, shot dead at Delaware veterans cemetery, by Jackie Sato, New York Post, May 10, 2020

A married Maryland couple in their 80s were killed at a Delaware cemetery by a gunman who authorities later found dead, according to reports.

Sheldon C. Francis, 29, gunned down an 85-year-old woman and her 86-year-old husband Friday morning on the grounds of the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Bear, NBC Philadelphia reported.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene while her husband died Saturday at an area hospital, police said. The couple’s identities haven’t been released.

Police said officers chased Francis around noon into a wooded area, where he exchanged gunfire with them.

He was found dead from a gunshot wound around 4 p.m. in the Brennen Estates neighborhood, which borders the veterans’ cemetery, authorities said.

It’s unclear whether Francis shot himself or was struck by police in the shootout, police said.

The state police homicide unit is investigating the case, the outlet reported.

The extent to which interracial crime in America is overwhelmingly black-on-white is an inconvenient truth to those in power, always determined to inflate every white-on-black incident as an immediate opportunity to castigate all white people for the individual act of criminality.

Heather Mac Donald is one of the bravest public figures in America. She noted the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization shows black on white violent crime is increasing, writing, “Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent.” [A Platform of Urban Decline: Democratic presidential candidates believe America is racist, yet they ignore the evidence on crime and ensure that racial disparities persist, City Journal, September 23, 2019]:

Just this month, the Bureau of Justice Statistics released its 2018 survey of criminal victimization. According to the study, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent. That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, blacks committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15 percent. From 2015 to 2018, the total number of white victims and the incidence of white victimization have grown as well.

Blacks are also overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes—by 50 percent—according to the most recent Justice Department data from 2017; whites are underrepresented by 24 percent. This is particularly true for anti-gay and anti-Semitic hate crimes.

There’s not one public figure, outside of the courageous Ms. Mac Donald, who is willing to note the black-on-white violent crime problem in America. Every other public figure in America works to accentuate the relatively few white-on-black assaults as evidence of the rising tide of white racial violence in the USA.

We will soon find out the names of the white octogenarian married couple who were murdered by a black male (hunted, actually) as they tried to visit their son’s grave, but the story will hardly be promoted with the same intensity of the Brunswick incident concerning a white father, his white son, and Ahmaud Arbery.

But will remember their names. We will tell their story.

And we will ask: Was Sheldon C. Francis motivated to hunt down and murder two white octogenarians because of the manner in which the corporate media promoted the Ahmaud Arbery false narrative of white racists hunting down in an innocent black body in a former Confederate state?
