Odds and Ends, 1/2/20

Various issues.

Am I a hypocrite for mocking Counter-Currents about their System-approved tax-exempt status, while at the same time promoting the idea of Democratic Multiculturalism, leveraging the System, and its multiculturalist ethos, against itself?

No, because Counter-Currents not only eschews the Democratic Multiculturalism strategy, but styles itself as the intellectual vanguard of traditionalist ethnonationalism, revolutionary National Populism,  and hardcore racialism.

This is Greg Johnson (emphasis added):

By the time the next president comes in, there will be millions of new invaders inside our borders.

Then the race war will kick off in the summer of 2021.

White Nationalists need to ask ourselves if we are going to be among the people who fought against white dispossession who declared ourselves accelerationists to own Trump and the GOP.

Which course makes it more likely we will be able to lead a genuine revolutionary National Populist movement?

Talk of “millions of new invaders” and “race war” doesn’t seem to mesh well with being a “tax-exempt foundation” that is System-approved by the IRS. Leading “a genuine revolutionary National Populist movement” is NOT the work-within-the-System Democratic Multiculturalism strategy.  So, I’m not the one being hypocritical here. That characterization fits all those tax-exempt “revolutionaries.”

The HBD-Nordicist-Race Realist alliance continues, with the anti-White Judeophilic self-described Yellow Supremacist site Amren peddling Arthur Kemp, that despicable fraud and divider of Whites. Ignore the leering Levantines and grinning Orientals behind the HBD curtain.

Some recent great moments in White history are when the findings of archaeogenetics continuously refute Kempism (with Der Movement either being mysteriously silent about it or ludicrously interpreting utter refutation as meaning “was right.”).  

Johnson tin-cupin’ in the New Year:

Remember Us in Your Will

Finally, we would like to broach a very delicate topic: your will. If you are planning your estate, please think about how you can continue helping the cause even after you are gone. The essay “Majority Estate Planning” contains many helpful suggestions.

Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today.

Greg Johnson Editor-in-Chief Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.

Working out in my local gym here in this Eastern European whitopia feels curiously comfortable, like it’s my own private facility.

Is Jef Costello Eastern European?  Or just your run-of-the-mull ethnoimperialist?  After all, Eastern Europeans exist only to make their masters and betters like Costello comfortable, eh?

Costello:

Everybody, in short, used to feel at home in their homelands. And everybody still has a right to that. We need to give it back to them; we need a “new world order,” a world in which “diversity” refers only to a diversity of ethnically and culturally homogeneous nation-states.

Beautiful!  Ethnonationalism!  So, Costello. Morgan, Anton, Fullmoon Ancestry, Munro, Deasy, etc. please leave Eastern Europe and/or never visit.  Farrell, please leave Italy.  Or do “ethnically and culturally homogeneous nation-states” only apply to Northwest Europe, you hypocrites?

Observation: Ethnonationalism is much like Christianity.  Lots of people profess allegiance to it, but they are unable, or unwilling, to live up to its ideals in their own private  lives. Hypocrites all.

The White Tithe –  a new variation of tin cup panhandling.

Right now, we are limited to old-fashioned mail. I’m asking each of you to send what you can to:

American Renaissance

P.O. Box 527

Oakton, VA 22124

Donations are tax-deductible.

Tax-deductible? Of course they are!  The revolutionary, radical Far Right – fighting against brutal System persecution…tax-exempt!  Tax-deductible!

Give, give, give!  What would high-IQ Chinamen do without you?  The Yellow Tithe!

OK, another prediction for 2020:  Der Movement, Inc. (a money-making enterprise) will become ever more shameless in its tin cup panhandling.

Please Watch This Video

I’ve been warning you about all of this for many years.

The price of affirmative action – if you watch anything, watch this.  It’s a must. You can find it on Amazon, for example.

It’s all there. The humiliating ease of the infiltration, and how quickly and seamlessly Hermansson rose within the ranks of the pitiful Alt Right. Note that, apparently, ZERO significant (if any) background checks were done on him. Note that no one bothered to check whether or not his false persona was real, whether or not that false persona was, in reality, actually a university student writing a dissertation. No, the “extreme vetting” was essentially: “Are you Swedish?”- literally.  Thus: “You’re Swedish…talk to Steadman.”  That was followed up with meeting with Stead Steadman at Steadman’s favorite eatery…The Nordic Bakery.

I kid you not. You just can’t make this stuff up. Nor could you make up the “Odin Ceremony”- if I tried to invent a parody of Der Movement’s ethnic fetishism, I couldn’t do a better job.  If I tried to invent a scenario demonstrating how Der Movement’s extreme Nordicism has real-life negative consequences, I couldn’t do any better than this. A jug-eared, effeminate, pipe stem-armed Swedish homosexual, with a transparently false identity, is rapidly brought up in the “movement” to the point that he’s doing background checks on legitimate meeting attendees (and laughably warned about “Martin the HopenotHate infiltrator”), and giving a opening speech about the dangers of infiltration (!) at one of Johnson’s meetings, all simply because of Steadman’s ethnoracial obsessions.  I’ll pass over the juvenile jackassery of the “Extremist Club,” the counter-productive provocations of Turner, and the delusions of Jorjani.

What an absolute train wreck. Don’t say you weren’t warned. At the same time all of that was going on, the “crazy and bitter” Sallis was denouncing the Alt Right, warning all of you about the Alt Right, denouncing Jorjani and the whole AltRight Corporation, warning about the “movement’s” ethnic fetishism and Nordicism, being skeptical about the “extreme vetting” – correct about it all.

All of the people who facilitated Hermansson’s joyride through the “movement” have NO business still being involved in racial activism in any capacity – but of course they still are. Of course.  Affirmative action works wonders, eh?

See this.  It’s so easy for them.


And let us not forget this great moment in “extreme vetting” operational security (emphasis added):

I e-mailed Dr. Greg Johnson, organizer of Northwest Forum, Seattle’s hottest closed-door white nationalist convention, asking for an interview on the latest in regional racism. He turned me down. Thanks to the internet, the far right no longer needs the mainstream media to get its message out. Print, television, and radio lose their relevance when everybody’s just a click away from Pepe the Frog, Disney songs dubbed with racist lyrics, and pseudo-intellectual essays that somehow try to bring ancient Rome into all this.

Also thanks to the internet, it only took me about an hour to change my identity from David Lewis, Seattle historian, to Dave Lewis, Neo-Nazi film editor and aspiring book critic from Charlottesville, currently living in Los Angeles. This Dave Lewis has never been to Seattle, but has always wanted to attend Northwest Forum.

My film editor persona dangled a giant chunk of cheese in front of Dr. Johnson. In addition to being a racist, Johnson is also a huge cinephile…Dr. Johnson bit the cheese. Entry into Northwest Forum typically requires “extreme vetting,” which means meeting in person and getting a beer with one of the Northwest’s white separatist organizations like True Cascadia. But I didn’t even have to send in a photoMy e-mail invite listed the forum for August 26th at noon…

Accountability?  Zero.  Consequences?  Zero.  Indeed, the “D’Nations” keep on flowing in.

Our goal this year is to raise $100,000. So far, we have received 367 donations totaling $92,489.93. This is an enormous outpouring of commitment and support.

Remember that the next time Hood scribbles that “the only thing we need is money.”

Santayana:

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

That is why you rank-and-file fellows need to be reminded, time and again, of the humiliating stupidity and collapse of the Alt Right, and of the practical consequences of the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program.

Read this.  (Note: How about “HBD as anti-White pseudoscience?”)  Emphasis added:

Krosch has a broad, testosteronized punim like that of the fanatical Swedish climate crusader Greta Thunberg. 

What?  Blasphemy!  Doesn’t he know that Thunberg is Swedish?  He’s going to get his Der Movement, Inc. membership card revoked!  What are Thunberg praisers like Durocher and Counter-Currents going to think?  For shame!  (Shame culture activated!)

Now, I was rebuked in the comments to my last article at TOO for “draw[ing] attention to minor deficiencies in [the] physical beauty” of the journalists Stephen Daisley and Tanya Gold, but I don’t think the rebuke was valid. As the great Chateau Heartiste has often pointed out: “Physiognomy is real.” The ugliness of leftism as an ideology is often reflected in the ugliness of leftists as people. I also agree with a fascinating article at National Vanguard arguing that “Jews themselves are an unattractive and, on average, ugly people” and that “Jews, as a group, oppose beauty.” In fact, the Talmud advises Jews not to regard physical beauty as important in marriage: “For ‘false is grace and beauty is vain.’ Pay regard to good breeding, for the object of marriage is to have children” (Taanith 26b and 31a).

This seems to be the article in question.  By the way, my own essay on the subject was written without knowing about that National Vanguard piece. The Talmud quote supports my theory.


Those conservatives – like folks who shill for capitalism?  By the way, note how Asians mirror Black and Hispanic voting and public opinion patterns – the same as Jews, it should be noted.  Colored is as Colored does.

Ethnonationalism marches on.  Hail Brexit!  Hail ethnonationalism!  Rule Britannia!

Counter-Currents marches on:

A possible objection bears discussion. All Indo-European beliefs, and indeed most traditional doctrines the world over, posit an inevitable end to this world. Whether it comes to a close with the Age of Iron, the Second Coming, the Age of the Wolf, or the Kali Yuga…

Rewritten:

A possible objection bears discussion. All Type I “traditionalist” beliefs, and indeed most traditional doctrines the world over, posit an inevitable end to this world. Whether it comes to a close with the Age of Aluminum, the Googolplex Coming, the Age of the Hamster, or the Yogi Bear…

Behold the Millennial “activist” Jeelvy:

I am a crotchety and aging millennial, with a self-cut undercut; my body is a hearty mix of muscle and . . . heh, insulating material; and my head is full of sanity-preserving copes, nightmares, and immature dick jokes. I’ve got a tenuous grip on a sinecure, I write for Counter-Currents, I lift weights and practice martial arts, and I hike with my wife on weekends. Her tits are only slightly bigger than my clenched fist. I have a Facebook page where I post photos of puppies and horses.

The entirety of Jeelvy’s writing can be summed up thus.

Time for Jeelvy to get hysterical about “Boomer mate poaching.”  No Bueno!

Shallow and stupid: It’s Jef Costello.  Isn’t he thankful about Ann Coulter as well?  When’s breakfast going to be ready?  Dinesh is getting hungry too.

How Dare You!

The usual suspects.

After TOO runs a series about how “climate change” is a leftist hoax aimed at attacking the technological and industrial basis of the West, the other shoe drops.

Look at that facial expression.  Exactly like Elizabeth Warren. That is the sort of arrogant self-righteousness and moral posturing we all know and despise. What’s next for Thunberg?  Becoming a ship captain and crashing into Italian ports to dump African invaders?  Riding trains into Bulgaria to tear down border fences?

Cue Counter-Currents: We need more youngsters like Greta Thunberg!

Ethno-Williams Syndrome in a picture.

As regards the status of White ethnics in Der Movement, and what they can expect, consider the fate of Joe Tommasi.  Also consider Michael Polignano and Greg Conte.  I do not defend either Polignano or Conte; I am just stating facts. I never had any problem with Polignano. I didn’t like some things he wrote about Salter’s work (e.g.,”genetic stasis”), but I believe that was out of ignorance and not malice.  Conte is a different story, as I view him as a classic shabbos sud stepandfetchit – ready to throw other Italians under the bus so as to get some table scraps from his Quota Queen masters.  Regardless, fact is, both of them were chewed up and spit out by Der Movement; they should, I suppose, consider themselves lucky they haven’t ended up like Tommasi.  Why put yourself through all of that for a “movement” that has racial contempt for you, that will never take you or your interests seriously?  It is literally true that Der Movement values John Lindsay, Hubert Humphrey, and Greta Thunberg more than it values Michael Polignano. Greg Conte, and Joe Tommasi.  Again, I’m not being sarcastic or facetious – that is literally true. So why do you support, and sacrifice yourself for, people who despise you?  Your activist energies would have been better suited to help create a new, truly pan-European, movement.

It seems like Costello agrees with Sallis and disagrees with Johnson:

I would wager very few of those who voted for Trump did so purely for economic reasons. No, Trump’s most important promise was to end illegal immigration. I submit that there is no way Glassner cannot know this. He goes on to gas about “tax cuts,” “de-regulation,” “thousands of new jobs every month,” “the labor market,” protecting “American workers from the unfair trade practices of our economic and geopolitical adversaries,” and “finally holding Beijing to account.”

Now, I don’t doubt that all of this means something to the overwhelming white middle- and working-class Trump base. But it doesn’t mean nearly as much to them as the prospect of taking back their country. In other words: sending back the illegals and stopping new ones from coming in; rolling back the “diversity” that has all but completely destroyed community in our towns and cities; and reversing trends that would make whites a minority in the nation they founded in, say, another twenty-five years…No one is allowed to say that they support Trump because they think he is good for white interests. But it is just beneath the surface.

Gee…what?  White folks voted for Trump because of his promises about immigration?  Because of White interests? Not because of his charming personality? Not that they would have supported him if he “cloned Jeb Bush’s campaign?”

Johnson is such a fundamentally dishonest liar it is comedy at this point.  The joke’s on you, though.

Der Movement: July 9, 2019

In all cases, emphasis added.

Heddi
Replying to @RichardBSpencer
1) Richard, risk involvement reduces the influx of quality people to exactly ZERO. People who have lives/families to shatter by social ostracism or job loss will not ever involve themselves visibly, thus alt right was anonymous online phenomenon.‏

2) The condition to attract quality people – those who do not come from a “nothing to lose anyway” position – is the erasure of risk. How to do it? Marry risk erasure with incentives of heightened prospects of living conditions. Immerse immediate benefits into joining. Think.

Point number one is fairly obvious but very important, and perhaps not obvious to the grand poohbahs who represent themselves as “movement leadership.”  And this is something I’ve written about before, more than once.  

As far as point two goes, I essentially agree, except that “erasure of risk” is unrealistic. There is risk in everything, even driving a car or walking down a flight of stairs. Obviously, involvement in dissident political/metapolitical activity that is opposed by the entire System, by virtually the entire political spectrum, is going to have inherent risk.  Instead, we should talk of “risk management” and “risk minimization” – far more realistic objectives.  That is opposed to the typical “risk maximization” of Der Movement.  As an example of reasonable minimization, see the 2019 Amren meeting; while Unite the Right, the fate of Ricky Vaughn, Hermansson and Lewis infiltrations, IE Discord, and similar antics exemplify risk maximization.

And as far as incentives go – there are none.  Community building? Resistance to social pricing? Alternative infrastructures and economic viability for low-to-medium scale activists (as opposed to the “Happy Penguins” soaking up the “D’Nations”)?  Camaraderie?  Normalcy?  None of that. Instead we see sour defectiveness, bizarre freakishness, and endless failure.

A comparison between the Type I-style and Type II-style “alpha males” is shown in this short clip from Twin Peaks Season 3. Ray Monroe exemplifies the style of alpha maleness prized by the Type I defectives of “game” such as Roissy – a snide, smirking, sneering, joking, obnoxious jackass.  Mr. C, on the other hand, displays a more Type II-style sense of alpha maleness – aggressive, driven, serious, threatening, focused, with the “alphaness” focused with the “want” vs. “need” distinction.  Note how the two interact – Mr C putting Monroe in his place but the latter refusing to acknowledge it other than a begrudging slight nod and semi-grunt, followed by more of the same annoying jerkboy behavior.

This is a useful contrast because it is the Type I behavior that has led to the downfall of the Alt Right and damaged (American) racial nationalism.  All you need to do is listen to (drunken) “movement” podcasts and read “movement” blog posts and comments threads and you’ll observe Ray Monroes aplenty.  Unfortunately, Mr Cs are few and far between, so the snark to seriousness ratio approaches infinity.

The paradigm of “Sallis is always right” extends to my opinion of Durocher, whose latest inane screed can be found here.  Note the Bliss vs. Malla insanity in the comments thread, which is a direct result of Durocher’s constant shilling of an unscientific, ahistorical, cartoonish Ostara-style version of racial history.  Note then the Nutzi Germanic lunatics, the raging defectives, sweaty fetishists, and all the rest.  It’s no coincidence that such freaks come out of the woodwork with a Durocher post.  As they say – garbage in, garbage out.

Once again Sallis is right – remember this:

Some will object – what about Europe?  They have repressive speech codes and aren’t the national governments there considered legitimate by the people?  First, I can’t speak for rightist Europeans – it is very possible that the growth of populism there is indicative of a growing element that does indeed consider the System illegitimate. And, second, the USA, with its particular history of, and alleged commitment to, free speech, is expected to exhibit a much stronger association between free expression and political legitimacy than do nations that have histories of kings, dictators, strongmen, and laws against lese majeste. What about the argument that European nationalists have had success despite the speech codes there?  What success?  In some nations, there has been a temporary slowdown in the degeneration, which can be quickly reversed by any subsequent leftist government; at best, there have been victories by civic nationalists and moderate petty nationalists. The “grand success” in Europe is a figment of the Nutzi imagination. And I can turn the argument around – imagine how much more successful the European Right could be if they could actually express their real views without fear of being fined or jailed?

So, no, the pathetically flimsy “successes” in Europe – which in any case have limited relevance to the American situation – in no way disprove the thesis put forth here.  Given the concerns of White nationalists, the situation in Europe remains dire. Demographic replacement is still “baked into the cake” there. Can European nationalists freely and frankly discuss these concerns?

So, yeah, I’m sure the vaunted Swedish ethnonationalists will go from victory to victory when it is considered a crime to merely state the desire to deport criminal migrants.  

Laugh at this.  Soporific blog posts?

After a hard day of writing inspirational articles for Counter-Currents (under various pennames)

Multiple pennames? If true, that would help explain the devastating decline of quality at that site.

…I mix myself a drink that consists of vodka, soda water, lots of lime juice, and lots of ice.

What is it with Type I Alt Right and drinking alcohol?

Countering the Rancid Current

Some truths.

The worst writer in the history of Counter-Currents strikes again.

Where does Johnson find these people?

…any decision-making under conditions of uncertainty is likely to be the opposite of scientific conclusions: allergic to Type 2 errors and tolerant of Type 1 errors.

Tell that to Johnson and Steadman and their “extreme vetting” of meetings.  

If you don’t have the right staff you don’t get the right policies. Indeed. Meet Der Movement.

Ted Cruz shameful? In the convention, maybe. Today, no – Cruz at least speaks up against Antifa violence and the Portland mayor, unlike the fraud Don Trump.

Johnson doesn’t believe Trump was a fraud from the beginning; after all, that would prove Sallis right and Johnson wrong, and we can’t have that. Johnson promotes the lie that Trump could have “cloned Jeb Bush’s platform” and still have won because of his “personality”- can you believe this? In reality, Trump’s campaign took off only after he started talking about Mexican rapists and started attacking the Bush family and their policies.  

What’s laughable is that right after Johnson makes his gaslighting comment, they all admit that people voted for Trump precisely because of his strong talk about immigration (these guys can’t get their stories straight from minute to minute.) – yes, that’s the point.  It was NOT Trump’s personality, which was actually a turn-off for many people who voted for him.  Does anyone believe that Republican voters, including evangelicals, would support a twice-divorced and thrice-married vulgar New York real estate tycoon and reality TV star who talks about his “big hands” and “grabbing pussies” IF this buffoon was merely a neoconservative clone of Jeb Bush?  Does any sane person believe that the enthusiasm that carried Trump to the nomination and then to the Presidency was based on his obnoxious jackass personality, independent of a hardline position on immigration and his America First domestic and foreign policy positions that were articulated during the campaign?

The problem is that these affirmative action “movement leaders” are unable to ever admit that they are wrong. I’m surprised that these types even admit that Hermansson was an infiltrator (although the “leaders” will not take full responsibility for the infiltration) – instead, they could have claimed that Hermansson is actually a double agent burrowing deep into the bowels (no pun intended) of HopeNotHate.

Let’s consider Trump. Let me preface this by saying that we must be careful not to be too Manichean in our view of human nature. It’s not always an orthogonal choice between being a true believer and being a fraud.  Some people are a combination of both.  Was Hitler a rabid anti-Semite or did he use anti-Semitism as a path to power?  Probably both.  Did Stalin truly believe in Marxism or did he use Marxism to achieve power. Probably both. Does Trump have any healthy instincts or is he just a political grifter?  Probably both, again.

It is entirely possible that Trump has some very vague civic nationalist and populist beliefs. But they are likely not important to him, not crucial to his worldview; he is not serious or sincere about any of it in any hardcore, authentic fashion.  He does in fact embody, as Ted Cruz suggested, New York values. He has Jewish family connections, a deep attachment to Israel, and a fondness for Negroes. He is a self-centered narcissist and if he truly cares about anyone other than himself then it likely is his elder daughter Ivanka and no one else. He certainly doesn’t care about his base.  If Trump was (and is) sincere, then why does he ignore his base (e.g., Antifa attacks, State of the Union address), lie to his base (e.g., “the Wall is being built!”) and constantly betray his base (e.g., hiring Neocons, shilling for increased legal immigration, an aggressive foreign policy, pro-Negro “criminal justice reform”)?  The man cares more about pardoning Jack Johnson than he does about his own supporters being physically attacked in the streets and sent to the hospital. His own DOJ persecutes his followers when they defend themselves and ignores the leftist domestic terrorists running wild in the streets.  For Trump to be sincere and commit all his crimes of omission and commission against his base means that the man must be a psychotic retard. However, while he may be vulgar and ignorant, and may be a psychopath, he is not psychotic and he is not retarded.  

Trump wanted to run for President for some reason.  Ego?  To build a rightist media empire after the electoral loss he thought would occur (and very likely desired)? His dislike of Obama and anger at being mocked by Obama?  Whatever the reason, he looked at the Republican field, read Coulter, and had enough sense to realize he needed to give the GOP base some “red meat” to distinguish himself from the Neocons and from Ted Cruz. The more he pushed the envelope, the better he did. It worked better than even he imagined. But if he were sincere, he’s had 2.5 years to give some demonstration of it, and he has done the exact opposite.  He’s not sincere.  He’s a fraud and Johnson was wrong and Sallis was right.

Thus Spoke Costello: Tin Cup Panhandling.  Nietzsche weeps.

Hey, fools, send in those “D’Nations” – these guys need their $100,000.  It will be put to good use, no doubt!

Ted Sallis News

And other news.

Given recent events and trends, followers and general readers of my blogs should bookmark or otherwise make note of Ted Sallis News:

https://tedsallisnews.blogspot.com/

Thus, if EGI Notes and/or Western Destiny were to suddenly vanish, then the situation and contingency plans would be discussed at the Ted Sallis News site. In the unlikely event that anything happens to the completely innocuous Ted Sallis News site, then try tedsallisnews2, etc., following the general pattern.

The whole situation is ludicrous, but that is the state of America 2019. And for the morons and the mendacious who argue that “private property rights” mean that service can be denied for political reasons (does that apply for food, electricity, heat, etc. as well?), we can explore the issue of “the sanctity of private property.”

If a person’s “private property” includes real estate, then can a home owner refuse to rent or sell to Blacks or Muslims?  No. Somehow, the “sanctity of private property” dissipates in that instance. What happens if a wealthy person wants to leave their estate to, say, the National Alliance in their will? What if the will instead includes using the estate to set up a college scholarship available only to White students? You can use Google and look up the results of such attempts.

So, it seems like “private property rights” can be abrogated in favor of a perception of “the public good.”  And guess who decides what “the public good” is (and is not) – members of the Jerry NadlerRuth Bader GinsburgAnthony Weiner physical beauty crowd.

Freedom!  Democracy!  The Rights of Man!  The Sanctity of Private Property!  Leering Levantines Laughing in Your Face!

Another horrifically bad Counter-Currents essay, this time by the juvenile retard Jef Costello. Victory!  Victory!  Send in those “D’Nations!” Victory!  What the William Blake-Great Red Dragon-Francis Dolarhyde imagery has to do with any of it is anyone’s guess.

Looks like prime Antifa recruitment material right here.

Michael Polignano’s name is currently (as of today) not up as the webzine editor (or any other major player) at the Counter-Currents site.

Der Movement Saturday

Odds and ends.

It’s dat dere traditionalism!  Is the Dalai Lama snug in his hobbit hole?  Meanwhile, keep that tin cup a’rattlin.

Flake is more of an “alpha” than Trump.  Are all the fat cells in Trump’s body secreting estrogen?  What does it say that pink-frilled Republican Ms. Lindsey Graham has shown more grit and aggression this week than did Der Touchback?

Do the false memories include that of Dinesh and Costello?  Where’s her breakfast, Jef?

And yet, noodle-armed soyboys can make “Proudboys” scurry for cover at a LA bar.  Mental toughness counts too, I suppose.

According to (the American) Der Movement, all individuals involved in this incident, including victim and girlfriend, are non-White.
