VIA| A Marine veteran was attempting to enjoy a meal at McDonald’s when a group of teenage hooligans began harassing him, asking him “Do you believe Black Lives Matter?”
The situation escalated quickly, resulting in the veteran being knocked out and robbed.
Check it out.
Christopher Marquez received the Bronze Star for valor after serving in the Iraq war.
“Do you believe black lives matter?” they asked him repeatedly. When Marquez ignored them, they began shouting that he was a racist.
After finishing his food, Marquez left the restaurant. As he was walking out to the parking lot, he allegedly sustained a blow to the back of his head, which knocked him unconscious.
The vet awoke to find his pants ripped and his wallet, which contained $400, three credit cards, his VA medical card, school identification, metro card and driver’s license, missing.
“I remember this group of teens harassing me while I was eating, they surrounded my table and kept on asking me ‘Do you believe black lives matter?’” Marquez told the Daily Caller. “Then they started calling me a racist. I can’t recall if they were saying anything else to me at this moment because the blow to my head really screwed up my memory.”
According to the Daily Caller, transactions made on Marquez’s stolen credit cards reveal that his attackers charged more than $115 at a liquor store, Five Guys and Walmart. Mason told Marquez that police had already been looking for the group of teens for a prior incident. On Saturday, Mason helped Marquez piece together the events leading up to the head blow.
“I believe this was a hate crime, and I was targeted because of my skin color,” Marquez told the Daily Caller. “Too many of these types of attacks have been happening against white people by members of the black community and the majority of the mainstream media refuses to report on it.”
And yet the left still tries to convince us the folks involved in BLM are fighting for racial equality, despite incidents like this.
I don’t doubt these individuals would still be committing crimes, wether or not the BLM existed, but the twisted message and ideology of the movement provides them with an “excuse” to justify their behavior.
After all, you can’t blame a bunch of angry teens who are tired of the systemic oppression they experience by all those silly, dumb, racist white people, right?
Look, racism is real, and it isn’t limited to white people. It’s a sinful condition that plagues all of mankind. There are racist white folk, black folk, Asian folk, you name it.
The problem is, we judge one another’s value based on skin color, rather than on the fact we’re all made in the image of God, the imago dei.
You see, every human being is valuable because we’re made in God’s image. No one race is superior. No one race is inferior. A person is not worth more because they are white and a person is not worth less because they are black.
BLM misses this point, and unfortunately, so do a lot of folk on the other side of the spectrum.
Hopefully one day this will be different, and we’ll all see each other as having the same value and worth, as we reflect the character of our Creator.
