Post-Racial Update: White Supremacists Kill Rival Racist Over White Supremacy

Anyone who has read this site for any time might tell you, I’ve been on a mission to fully embrace this Obama age of post-racial bliss. Occasionally, since January 2009 I’ve brought you many stories to reinforce said new trend of racial harmony. Why? Because quite naturally I want to do my part; I’d like to go down in history as one who was there when the story is written sometime in the future. You know, this ongoing “post-racial update” series could quite possibly be something like the Dead Sea Scrolls and serve as a point of historical reference And you have to admit, for a country with a rich history of racial strife, it’s great to be able to live at a time where such racial matters are in fact a thing of the past. That said, how about we take a look at how far we have come in four short years since Barack Obama placed his hand on the Bible and accepted the task of ridding the world of racism. Yep, isn’t it good to know that today, White Supremacists kill a rival racist over White Supremacy?

This from Hatewatch:

Two white supremacists are in custody and two more are being sought in the beating death in Tennessee of a volunteer firefighter who authorities say was affiliated with the neo-Nazi Aryan Nations.

At least one of the four suspects is reportedly a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, a prison-based, “whites-only” gang that is known as one of the most violent of its type in the country. In recent years, felons released from prison have increasingly continued to work for the Aryan Brotherhood, which frequently is involved in drug dealing, in the outside world.

John Corey Lanier, 26, and Todd E. Dalton, 39, both of Manchester, Tenn., are currently being held in jail in Franklin County, Tenn., on charges of first-degree murder, authorities say.

David Gordon Jenkins, 46, also of Manchester, and Coty Keith Holmes, 25, of Hillsboro, Tenn., also were charged with murder in grand jury indictments returned Monday.

[…] The four are charged in the death of Corey N. Matthews, 26, whose body was found March 24 on Jackson Cemetery Road in rural Franklin County. Guess said that Matthews, a volunteer for the Keith Springs Fire Department, died of blunt force trauma to the head and upper body, and most likely was killed on the evening of March 23.

[…] “This was a specific and targeted incident related to Mr. Matthews’ affiliation with a white supremacist organization,” the sheriff’s spokesman told theTimes-Free Press in Chattanooga, Tenn. Guess told the newspaper that investigators theorize that the murder stemmed from “a dispute over the white supremacist organization’s doctrine.”

[..] The newspaper reported that at least three of the suspects — Lanier, Dalton and Holmes — as well as the victim were members of the Aryan Nations, a group that was based in Northern Idaho for many years before a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit reduced it to a few squabbling splinter groups that each claim to be the rightful heir of the once-storied organization. Jenkins, who is still a fugitive, had ties to the Aryan Brotherhood, a national prison gang that in recent years has had an increasing presence in the free world.

Now of course some of you may be reluctant to believe that things have changed here in the United States — I know, it took me a while to buy into it at first. But, when two white guys commit acts of terror as the Tsarnaev brothers did in Boston last week, it’s hard to argue that we haven’t arrived. Recently I pointed out how the Aryan Brotherhood has been putting heads to bed in Texas. Heads which happen to be attached to the bodies of white folks. Now here this week in Tennessee, we have White Supremacists murdering other White Supremacists because of a difference in ideology. I don’t know about you, but when racist extremists are killing innocent white folks and other fellow racist extremists instead of black folks. Yeah, I’d say that things have changed; and that Obama has been doing a fine job of getting white folks to hate each other.
