Angry Whites Plan Knoxville Rally In Memory Of Murder Victims Channon Christian & Christopher Newsom
Myranda Morgan, associatedcontent.com, March 23, 2007
The recent murders of two young white people in Knoxville, TN, allegedly committed by black assailants, have angered some whites who plan to rally in Knoxville in memory of the victims.
Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were killed in January after being kidnapped, raped, dismembered and tortured by at least four black perpetrators.
According to several websites frequented by whites who are unhappy with what they say is a lack of national media coverage of the case, the rally may be held sometime in the spring.
The rally organizers hope to bring attention to what they say is a disproportionate amount of black-on-white violence in the U.S.
Scant Media Coverage Explained
The scant media coverage can be explained, according to the email attributed to Mr. Boyd.
“Channon and Chris’ parents have declined repeated requests for interviews. The couple’s friends have, for the most part, expressed their grief through a couple of prayer vigils and some on-line blog and youtube tributes. . .. Absent their availability, the national media lack fresh emotional “hooks” to fuel the story.”
No Lack of Coverage on Blogs
VNN Forum has a listing of nearly 2oo blogs that have reported on the Christian-Newsom murders. A Google News search yields only fourteen results for news articles covering this story.
Not Backing Down
The rally’s supporters say they will not back down and that the rally will go on as planned.
A poster on the VNN Forum sums it up with these words: “There should be no room in America for hateful, violent blacks who hate Americans.”
