Last month: 26 BLACK-ON-WHITE HOMICIDES: September 2023—Another Month In The Death Of White America

October 2023 saw the usual toll of white women killed by black Significant Others—but also, unusually, a black woman killed by a white Significant Other (in this case connected to the hopelessly cucked British Royal family!) Could interracial relationships be inherently problematic?

Drug deals continue to be a major killing ground. It also continues to be dangerous to be a white law enforcement officer, cf. Derek Chauvin. Plus we have Road Rage, a disgruntled employee—and, perhaps most significantly, random black killings of whites for no apparent reason at all.

Two of the accused perps were the same age as celebrated Emmett Till, murdered by white men after sexually harassing a white women in 1955.

Two of the victims were white Social Justice Warriors, one homosexual. We suspect interracial homosexual killings are a significant factor in our monthly tally, but needless to say the Main Stream Media will not report it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Main Stream Media and law enforcement agencies are increasingly successful in suppressing the race of perps altogether, as well as details of the back stories. Email me here and/or VDARE.com here if you have tips.

  • Dennis Parker, 41, was fatally shot in an apartment complex parking area in Tacoma, WA.

Arrested was Christopher Jadwick Lynch, 31:

Prosecutors wrote that detectives obtained video surveillance and saw Lynch allegedly walking out of his girlfriend’s apartment and past her car. He allegedly told detectives he was trying to go to her car. He began to approach the man on a sidewalk south of the apartment complex. The man was either standing or kneeling. When Lynch was five to eight feet away from the man, he allegedly drew his gun. Lynch, who was facing the man, allegedly takes a step or two backwards and the man falls to the ground, prosecutors wrote.

  • Austin Michael Seiman, 19, was fatally shot in Fort Wayne, IN.

Dimitrius Walker, 20, and Nasir Owens, 18, were arrested and face preliminary charges of murder and arson.

Dimitrius Walker

Nasir Owens

Reports say Seiman died from multiple gunshot wounds. His remains were dumped in the Maumee River, where he was found by a kayaker.

Reports say police found a bloody shirt, a $20 bill, and a torched car in a Fort Wayne alley that eventually led them to the suspects.

A report from wane.com cited court documents:

A witness told police he had seen the driver of a car walk up to the victim and they had an argument that turned physical, court documents said. That’s when a passenger also got out of the car and the two began punching and assaulting the victim before three or four gunshots rang out, the witness told police.

The two men left in the car and came back to the alley about 20 minutes later, the witness said in court documents, and it appeared they put a black bag over the third man’s body, took it in the car and left again.

Hours after the shooting, FWPD responded to reports of a car fire in an alley. The car was missing its license plate, but officers were still able to trace the ownership back to the mother of Walker…

Sieman was apparently trying to buy drugs. See also: FWPD: 2 face preliminary murder, arson charges after man found dead in Maumee River, by Clayton McMahan, wane.com, October 4, 2023.

  • 48-year-old Jason McKinnon strangled on a street corner in Cincinnati, OH.


Arrested was Lavontez Davis, 24.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Melissa Powers said Tuesday that McKinnon was walking home from an FC Cincinnati game with his wife when the assault took place.

”A female DoorDash driver looked like she was about to pull out the wrong way on a one-way street and the victim made a comment to her, and an argument ensued,” Powers said.

Surveillance video showed the argument breaking out, and that’s when video shows the driver’s boyfriend, later identified as Davis, walked up to McKinnon and started to fight.

”He punched him in the face and took him to the ground in a chokehold,” Powers said. Powers said McKinnon got up briefly, but then another attack ensued, and he was put in a chokehold again.

Witnesses in the video could be heard saying ”stop” multiple times. The video then showed Davis and his girlfriend pull away in the car.

  • Isaac Aney, 18, fatally shot in Everett, WA.

Arrested was Mohammed “Mo” Jaiteh, 18. (Presumably an immigrant or child of recent immigrants rather than an American Descendant of Slaves—Jaiteh is a name more seen in Senegal and Gambia than America.)

  • The TimesOfIndia reported that ”Radical Leftist activist Ryan Carson was stabbed to death on a street in New York City. Ryan Carson was with his girlfriend at a bus stop when the black attacker accosted him.”

Only in India will you see ”black attacker” in the headline.

Brian Dowling, 18, was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

The fatal stabbing took place at Lafayette Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard and was captured on video.

For whatever reason, Carson was one of a few far-Left non-black extremists who actually venture into the urban jungle at night.

He and his girlfriend were reportedly in the area after attending a wedding:

Wearing a gray suit, Carson and the young woman, dressed in a blue, sleeveless gown, get up and begin to walk down the block, in the same direction as a man in a dark sweatshirt who had just strolled past the pair at the B38 bus stop, with his hood up over his head and his hands in his pockets.

Just feet ahead of them, the stranger begins kicking scooters parked near the curb for no apparent reason, the footage—obtained by The Post on Tuesday—shows.

Suddenly, the unhinged man turns to Carson and says, “What the f–k are you looking at?”

The beloved community activist—who replied that he wasn’t looking at anything—then stepped between his girlfriend and the irate stranger, who began to advance on the couple.

“I’ll kill you!” the maniac threatens as Carson pleads with him to “Chill! Chill!” and holds up his hand.

But the attacker pursues Carson, pulling a knife, as the victim’s girlfriend, running up behind them, is heard frantically yelling, “Please, please, please!”

As he runs, Carson tumbles over the bench the couple had earlier been sitting on.

The assailant then grabs his jacket and knocks him onto the ground, savagely stabbing him multiple times in the chest as the victim’s girlfriend catches up to them.

He then walks away as Carson lies curled up on the ground, before returning and approaching the terrified woman, who raises her hand to stop him.

The sicko spits on her—while still clutching the knife—before kicking the mortally wounded Carson and storming away.

An unknown woman then appears near the corner of the frame, yelling, “Don’t hurt him!” at the crazed man and repeating what sounds like the name “Brian” or “Bryan.”

Investigators believe that the woman and the suspect knew each other prior to the slaying, police sources said Tuesday.

“I’m so sorry!” the same woman exclaims as she approaches Carson, still lying on the sidewalk, as his worried girlfriend stands at his side.

“Go watch him,” the victim’s girlfriend directs the woman while pointing at the attacker.

White-On-Black Killings

FBI statistics show that more than 50 percent of homicides in the USA are committed by blacks, even though blacks only comprise about 13 percent of the country’s population [FBI: Crime in the U.S. 2019 • Tables • Table 43]. In 2021, for example, 51.3 percent of “Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter” incidents were attributed to black offenders.

Overall, FBI data suggest blacks are over thirteen times more likely to kill whites than vice versa.

American Renaissance Editor Jared Taylor, citing data based on 2021 FBI statistics assembled by anonymous researcher Datahazard, reports a black-male offender homicide rate of 64.4 per 100,000. The equivalent figure for white-male offenders is 3.5 per 100,000 [A Harsh New Light on Race and Murder, Amren.com, March 24, 2023].

That is, the black-male offender homicide rate is 18.4 times higher than the white-male offender homicide rate.

In October, for the second month running (is this a trend?), we found several (half a dozen) white-on-black homicides:

  • Jermaine Pone, 39, was fatally shot in Rocky Mount, NC.
