Black Man Disguised as Elderly White Man Allegedly Robs 11 NorCal Banks

CBS San Francisco, June 2, 2012

Authorities say an African American bank robber is in custody after disguising himself as an elderly white man and holding up several banks across Northern California.

San Leandro Police Lt. Jeff Tudor says 34-year-old Deron Williams apparently robbed 11 banks while wearing a “sophisticated full-face mask giving him the appearance of an elderly white male.”

Alameda County prosecutors have charged Williams with several counts of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, vehicle theft and weapons violations. {snip}

Tudor says police were able to implicate Williams off of DNA evidence following a robbery at a Bank of the West branch in San Leandro in October.

    Nonsense!  Everyone knows ‘Race’ is a social construct.

    If President Obama had a son…..he’d look like the robber, in white face??   He must have gotten the idea from watching the movie, “White Girls” where two black dudes pose as white girls and act stupid for two hours.  Good clean fun!

    A black man who wears a white mask while sticking guns in people’s faces and robbing banks makes the news because of the quirky, off-beat nature of the story and everyone has a good laugh.

    A white man who wears blackface at a drunken fraternity party or Halloween get-together makes the news because of the shocking, awful nature of his disgusting actions and everyone has to hang their heads in shame at the awful state of race relations in this country.

    Reality in 21st century America.

    Imagine if the races were reversed!! Pictures are needed!

    • Well, actually a white guy pulled this type of thing off first and this black guy is just imitating that.

        Kinda like slavery in Africa? The White man showed him how to do it? Monkey see monkey do?

      The crime will STILL be blamed on a WHITE!! (just like the msm insist on calling Zim a “White”, emphasis on White, Hispanic —  Zim’s own father said he is a Spanish-speaking Hispanic).

      Races reversed?  Whites in black face??   It would be considered a Hate Crime against blacks — ask those fraternities that have paid hell for black-faced Halloween pranks…

         Whites in black face *is* a hate crime. Whites invented black face, red face and yellow face for HATEFUL  reasons.

    I’m officially offended. Where do I collect my money?

  • IKantunderstand

    Brilliant! Tis a shame he felt a need to relieve himself in the parking lot. Or did he leave some spit behind after biting off someone’s face?

  • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

    Interesting ploy.  This is the reverse of what is done in the media where blacks posing as gentimanly white men are the heroes, and white men are more often the bad guys or the clumpsy geeks that no white woman would date, let alone procreate with.  So this guy takes it to another level.  I don’t have to guess where he got the idea.

    DNA is the White man’s juju. That and videocameras.
