‘White and Black Don’t Mix’

Colin Flaherty, WND, January 19, 2013

Take one stripper with California, golden-girl looks. Lock her up for acting crazy.

One day later, release her into the most dangerous ghetto in Chicago—dressed only in short shorts and a bikini top. At night. Still acting crazy.

Deny her pleas for help because “white and black don’t mix.”

Then try to figure out what happened when a group of black people take her into the nearby projects, where she is raped and thrown from a seven-story building. Or went willingly—and jumped.

Put them all together and it adds up to one of the messiest, murkiest, most expensive cases of racial violence in the country.

Whatever happened, the city of Chicago agreed earlier this month to pay Christina Eilman $22.5 million in damages after her ordeal left her physically and mentally damaged.

The jury never heard about Eilman’s life as a stripper. Or from an expert witness about how the bizarre and sexual and violent behavior she displayed—first at O’Hare Airport, then while in jail—fit a pattern of methamphetamine abuse common among those in the exotic dancer trade.


All the jury heard about—and most news accounts followed along—is how police abandoned a then 21-year-old troubled coed who studied religion at UCLA in the housing projects of Chicago. Alone. Befuddled.

Which even Harvard sociology professor Robert Sampson said was a bad idea because of RAT: Routine Activities Theory. The judge explained RAT by saying Eilman “was a white female in a predominantly black, poor neighborhood (and) she had a much higher risk of predatory victimization.”

Judge Frank Easterbrook went on: “She was lost, unable to appreciate her danger and dressed in a manner to attract attention. She is white and well-off while the local population is predominantly black and not affluent, causing her to stand out as a person unfamiliar with the environment and, thus, a potential target for crime.”

The city said RAT was thinly disguised racial profiling and had no business at trial. But at the trial, RAT and race were everywhere—no matter how hard the city worked to keep it out. {snip}

Easterbrook said the situation was so transparently dangerous that Chicago police “might as well have released her into the lions’ den at the Brookfield Zoo.”


But everyone who came into contact with her in May of 2006 trying to get a flight back to California, knew something was wrong.


{snip} When police showed up, she told one officer she was going to take his gun and shoot him.

They took her to Wentworth, a lock-up for women seven miles from O’Hare, right in the middle of the ghetto.

The predominately black staff—as the court papers note—did not know what to do with her: Whether she was mentally ill, or like everyone else, just did not want to be in jail.

Knocking her head on the bars for hours did not really convince anyone either way. Neither did telling fellow inmates she was Wonder Woman. Nor did her crying, yelling, screaming, silence, and demands for attention.

But when she started smearing various, shall we say, bodily fluids on the walls of her cell, even the tough women in Chicago’s toughest jail begged to be separated from her.

By now Eilman’s parents in California were trying to warn police that their daughter was bipolar and needed help. But no one seemed interested: Jail is full of crazy people.

Court documents say “numerous officers and detention aides described Eilman’s behavior as ‘nutty,’ or ‘erratic.’” However, they never reported Eilman’s behavior to a desk sergeant or watch commander. Instead, the lockup personnel harangued Eilman by telling her to: (1) “shut the f—up”; (2) “shut the hell up, white b—-, you got the blood—you got the blood all over the cell.” “you crazy white b—-, you nasty b—, get that nasty s—off my walls.”

It did not really get any better. There was some talk of a mental evaluation, but no car was available to take her to the facility. Some police are reluctant to take inmates there because so many are faking it, and the process takes two days.

Finally, 29 hours after her arrest, she walked out of the Wentworth jail wearing only white “short-shorts” and a bikini top. First stop was JJ Fish restaurant a few blocks away. Where dozens of patrons saw her and “knew she wasn’t right.”

She made some new friends, showing some how much she liked rapper Notorious B.I.G. by reciting lyrics from his songs. Just as she did in jail. She accompanied two men to buy beer, then visited one of the men’s grandmother.

“Eilman then accompanied several young men into the Robert Taylor Homes, to Apartment 702,” court documents say, “which was a vacant apartment where people went to sleep or hang out and where a number of people had congregated that evening.”

Court documents do not say this one of the most notorious high-rise, high-crime subsidized buildings in Chicago.

Along the way, she knocked on at least one door, asking for help. According to the local ABC News affiliate: “A long-time resident at the Robert Taylor Homes—who did not want to be identified—said earlier Monday evening, she saw the young woman in the courtyard and again outside her own apartment. ‘The woman got on my floor and tried to get in apartment. I said, ‘No, white and black don’t mix.’ ”

According to the Chicago Tribune, “One resident, Melene Jones, said she repeatedly told Eilman to leave because the building was not safe for her. Several men asked Eilman to perform oral sex, but she refused, at one point saying she would jump out the window if anyone laid a hand on her, witnesses said.”

Jones said she tried to persuade Eilman to leave because she feared something bad would happen.

“First off, because, I mean, there was nobody there with her. And second off, because she was a white girl and, I mean, it’s really unusual for a white girl to be in the building and especially by herself,” Jones testified.

Soon after, Marvin Powell showed up. Powell “told everyone to leave,” and said he was going to “show this b—- who the real killer is.”

They left. Everyone except Eilman, who was sexually assaulted, before she was pushed—or she jumped—out of the window.

She survived. Powell was convicted of abducting Eilman, but not assaulting her. He was released in April 2012.

    It’s a good thing Dr. Sampson is a professor, and not an assistant professor. Would he say this if he knew his tenure review was coming up in a few years?

  • a multiracial individual

    If she studied religion (not theology) at ULCA you can be sure that she recieved a healthy dose of classical lefty thought.

  • Svigor

    I suppose the lesson here is: don’t do meth; you might wind up in a black neighborhood.

    • TeutonicKnight67

      And try not to get arrested. Cops are not, repeat, NOT your friend. Their racial loyalty does not extend to the general public.

  • The city said RAT[Routine Activities Theory] was thinly disguised racial profiling and had no business at trial. But at the trial, RAT and race were everywhere—no matter how hard the city worked to keep it out.

    Is that what it is when you know not to walk alone through America’s more “culturally vibrant” neighborhoods? Is that what it’s offically called when when we tell our children not to attend parties that are “diverse”?

    Call Rich Lowry. John Derbyshire was just ahead of the curve.

  • The__Bobster

    Drugs will make White women act like ghetto dwellers, which is why they should avoid them.

  • This is why there should be a public death penalty for this. If there were more public executions for a lot of crimes, much of the crime would diminish. Fear breeds obedience.

    • bluffcreek1967

      I agree.

    • Some Guy

      This revolving door prison system is not working! A good ‘ol fashioned public execution would deter crime. Let the low IQ thugs see what happens when you murder someone, that they MIGHT understand!

  • I hope she learns her lesson. Black and white don’t mix.

    Why Black Men PREFER to Date White Women Over Black Women


    • Lartin Kuther Ming, Jr.

      Blacks prefer to because White women are the most beautiful, and the god of most blacks is their sex drive.

      Whites are natural mates for Whites. It takes two Whites to make a White baby, therefore, necessity must overcome lust (considered a sin in every major world religion, BTW).

  • Willowville

    Once upon a time, mental patients would be given a sedative by injection that would stop their nonsense. Thanks to malpractice lawsuits, medical professionals are hesitant to medicate anyone without tons of medical records and observation.

    • Svigor

      I suppose that’s why 95% of the people I know are high on legal scrips all day.

    • Daisy

      Was that the time when they were also given lobotomies? That is a rhetorical question.

      Whites naturally are disgusted by sexual liaison with blacks. It takes decades of brainwashing to even start to undo nature’s order. Evidence for this fact includes that despite 50+ years of touting blacks as sex gods, most blacks have to be millionaires before a White will sell their soul and touch them.

      I think a stronger argument could be made that blacks are better off as chattel for Arabs, Persians, Chinese, or Whites. Although I wouldn’t necessarily make this argument, if you’re going to say White genocide is natural, I think we could find some way to disagree.

      • saxonsun

        You’re right about that–I have always had an innate repugnance concerning black men. There’s nothing lower on this planet.

      • Sherman_McCoy

        Blacks would be better off not left to their own devices. I would not be so sure about their owners.

    • Texan1st

      That’s your ‘proof’ that blacks and Whites mix? A couple of porn stars and a brainwashed ‘white’ girl that neither looks nor acts White?

    ‘Re: Why do black men rape white women?’

    “Again, you are confusing opinions with facts. This is crazy you are
    like Eric Cartmen on South Park, just because someone is white or black
    does not mean the should only like people of their race. I am not
    attracted to pale skinned white women, who have tons of freckles
    covering their bodies and who turn red instead tan when out in the sun.
    Is that anti white too? I should not forget that you, Fading Light also
    believe men are better at almost everything than women which is a truly
    sexist remark. All of the women in my life, black, white brown or
    otherwise (as if that really matters to anyone who was not as
    superficial as the members of this website) are strong independent
    women. Who do not mind a man’s help, but by no means need a man to
    support them.”


    • Lartin Kuther Ming, Jr.

      Blacks rape Whites because they are inveterate racists.

      Eldridge Cleaver made it perfectly clear that by defiling White women he was getting back at White men.

      Blacks would say or do anything to rape Whites, because the god of black America is its sex drive. They would support anything that justifies their MLK-given right to defile other races. The impetus for most things black America wants, is envy and lust. This is a fact, not merely someone’s opinion. Simply wishing it away does not make it false, but in America, blacks are never called to task for their errors, so this sort of thing will continue until the whole edifice collapses.

    “The jury never heard about Eilman’s life as a stripper.”

    It is not relevant to the issue.

    “Or from an expert witness about how the bizarre and sexual and violent behavior she displayed—first at O’Hare Airport, then while in jail—fit a pattern of methamphetamine abuse common among those in the exotic dancer trade.”

    Because this is mere speculation. Bizarre behavior, can be due to mental illness or drug use or both. Since the police didn’t do their jobs and have her taken to a hosptial, where she would have been tested, it is not known whether she had any substances in her body so it can’t be said in court that she was on drugs. . She did have a medical history of Bipolar Disorder.(It is fairly common for the seriously mentally ill to turn to street drugs to cope with their syptoms).

    “It did not really get any better. There was some talk of a mental evaluation, but no car was available to take her to the facility”The predominately black staff—as the court papers note—did not know what to do with her:”

    The police don’t need to take them, they can call EMS to come and take them This is done all the time.. The predominantly Black staff knew they could have called EMS, they were simply incompetant and did NOT care, especially about a White person.

    “The city said RAT was thinly disguised racial profiling and had no business at trial. But at the trial, RAT and race were everywhere—no matter how hard the city worked to keep it out. {snip}”
    Yes, it does when Whites are target by Blacks at a rate 40 times the reverse. Had a crazy Black woman been released into a White neighborhood, it’s highly unlikely anything would have happened.
    The bottom line is that the police didn’t do their jobs and knowingly released a woman not in here right mind into a lion’s den when they should have had her hopitalized.

    • Daisy

      I’ve known a few strippers, or dealt with some, including some who do serious drugs (which I believe is a high percentage of them). I’ve never heard of any smearing menstrual blood on the walls or announcing they’re Wonder Woman, or exposing themselves in airports, if that rumor about Christina is true. I think she was having some kind of emotional breakdown, I’m just not convinced it was manic depression. I read the court documents and the case was more decided on the fact that they moved Christina than that she was suffering emotional and possible mental turmoil. The cops @ to the constitution don’t have the responsibility to ameliorate a detainee’s circumstances; they do have the duty to not add harm to them. The court found that moving Christina so far from the site of her arrest was the real pivot. I also read they released her at 6:30pm with only an hour of daylight left, and that the building she was attacked in had been condemned and was full of squatters, and located right next to the station. The question needs to be asked: did they have to detain her for so long to process her? Was it necessary to move her at all? etc.

      • Triarius

        I know quite a few people, especially from working in hospitals, similar to this and almost all schizophrenic people are labeled bipolar or manic depressive. From what I have read, schizo. It appears she was hearing and imagining things and could not distinguish inner vs outer monologue. Although I could be wrong, and regardless she did not deserve this.

        • Daisy

          I have not read that she was hearing and imagining things and could not distinguish inner vs. outer monologue. Some witnesses did say she appeared to not be able to follow conversation well but it doesn’t seem obvious she was hallucinating. I simply don’t know. She did seem able to process that the first shelter she was offered after her release wasn’t available to sleep in and so she then followed someone into the apt. building, which seems to reflect some concrete thinking, as does her outrage at being asked or forced to perform oral sex.

          I think she had been sexually abused as a kid and was in the midst of some breakdown-ish phase. I base that on a fair amount of study of truly manic depressive and schizophrenic people and many survivors of sexual abuse. But who knows…I will say that with the psych system diagnosing everyone as bipolar the cops could easily claim they didn’t believe her or think it that serious. They actually said they thought the parents’ claim was a stunt pulled by friends, a likely spurious claim. So in final response to your assertion regarding schizophrenics and manic depressives, I heartily disagree. There might be some confusion when discerning between the two illnesses, but the vast majority of ‘bipolar’ or even ‘schizoish’ diagnoses are BS, particularly the bipolar ones.

          Everyone on here could meet the criteria for ‘bipolar.’ The psychiatrists would have a field day with us, calling us paranoid, suffering persecution complexes, etc. etc. The status quo is that there is no racism in the system towards whites. Go complain to a local psych unit or psychiatrist that you are a white person facing racist attacks in society and you will find yourself interned and drugged, just like they’ve historically dealt with issidents in Russia. Beware the Nanny State meets the Police State, and the liberal fascist Big Government, financed by Big Pharma and the Israeli Lobby, etc. We whites don’t need the government telling us what’s ‘good for us.’

    • Svigor

      “The city said RAT was thinly disguised racial profiling and had no business at trial.”

      Right. But “white bitch” isn’t racism, and has a proud place in Chicago gov’t, apparently.

    • vladdy1

      Yeah, just what I was thinking. What the heck was that in the story for? (Never mind; I know.)

  • bigone4u

    Regardless of her profession, I am glad she won her case against the vile government of Chicago. I just wish the animals responsible for her condition were serving life sentences.

    • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

      Her “profession?” Lifting up occupations like stripping to respectability with a term like that is part of the problem. She also liked rap music and apparently the attention of being a stripper wasn’t enough for her. It is sad when a white woman goes bad, and it was probably criminally wrong for the police to dump her where they know she would likely be assaulted, but this girl had long been on her road and apparently by preference.

  • BernieGoetzFan

    “The woman got on my floor and tried to get in apartment. I said, ‘No, white and black don’t mix.’ ”

    Wouldn’t even let her in though her life was in danger. Simply because of her white skin.

    This is how they portray us in the movies (To Kill a Mockingbird, MIssissippi Burning, Django Unchained) and books (Steven KIng, John Grisham) but it is blacks who don’t even view whites as human.

    • Svigor

      Spot on. Blacks have a penchant for conforming far better to the Yankee/”Scots-Irish” media’s demonizations of whites than we do.

    • Vanessa

      Remember when CNN and the rest of the media making a big stink about “racism” after Hurricane Sandy when a white guy in New York didn’t let a black female into his house after her car broke down, and her two kids were washed away and drowned? The media is nothing but agit-prop distributors.

  • IstvanIN

    The kidnapper is out of jail. The cops responsible for this are not in jail. Both should be in jail for life.

    Mentally ill people are taken to the psychiatric wards of hospitals all the time. At the very least that is where she should have been taken. This was pure racism.

    • Daisy

      If every criminal who was arrested and acted out or detoxing or faking nuttiness were dumped in the city’s hospitals, there’d be no beds for genuinely ill people. Plus, you’d have a police and big government state even more tyrannical than it already is. She should have been released back into the first precinct at the least; anything beyond that is up for grabs. That’s pretty much what the court decided.

    • Svigor

      At the very least, all of the openly racist black public employee caught on tape screaming “white bitch” and the like should be subjected to the kinds of punishments meted out to whites should they be caught on tape screaming “black bitch” at vulnerable blacks in custody.

      How long does anyone here think white guards would last in their jobs if the situation were reversed?

      Squeaky wheel gets the grease, though. Until whites are willing to stand up for themselves, they’ll keep getting it sans lube.

      • vladdy1

        I see a need for sensitivity training here. Or at least a dialogue. A conversation?

    • Daisy

      And also, apparently it was legal for the cops to comment on her status, yet all they kept telling her mother was that ‘she was being fingerprinted,’ a process that takes 2 minutes. I guess it was the 9th time her mother called when the cops just announced she’d been released. The court said the cops had deprived her parents the opportunity to arrange a taxi to be waiting for her, among various alternative scenarios they mentioned. I want to know why, if they were allowed to comment to the parents, they refused to update them. Why did it take all day to release Christina? Her cell phone battery had either died or they didn’t return her phone; are prisoners allowed one call? There needs to be an accounting of exactly which officer or guard did what and what race they were. Rahm Emanuel has suppressed the findings of the internal investigators. Imagine if the guards had called Christina a jew bitch and the rate of black on jewish female crime was anywhere near black on white? Where is the SPLC and ADL?

      We need a white NAACP NOW!

    • TeutonicKnight67

      Once again, the Police State and its “Finest” are not our friends.

  • Chris

    This story has been relatively suppressed nationally. It took place in Obama’s Chicago. Its one of the highest payouts from a lawsuit ever. It involved rape and mental illness. Christina Eilman should be a household name like Trayvon Martin. Her parents should receive a visit from the president, followed by an apology. At the very least they deserve a phone call. I guess Sandra Fluke is more important than Christina Eilman. Not to me. Remember Christina Eilman.

  • Garrett Brown

    Brainwash them so they feel safe, then they go to these neighborhoods. Then this happens… Not surprising at all.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    Imagine the exact same thing done to a black girl by white guys in the suburbs? This would easily be up there with the Trayvon, Brawley, and Jena Six cases if not even bigger. I would bet my life on it. Predatory behavior is accepted because blacks are allowed to have “black rage” against whites, but the second a white acts in a predatory behavior to a black, the world stops, twitter blows up, marches commence, and more white guilt is pumped out.

  • R.O.D.

    So, the decision of the court was that taxpayers, presumably mostly white, must pay a 22 million dollar fine, while the rapist kidnapper who threw the girl out of a seven-story window is released. Does anybody think he should remain incarcerated? Does anybody think the police officers who picked her up and moved her to that dangerous place should also be incarcerated? In general population?

  • Niko Kotsores

    Marvin Powell was convicted of abducting Eilman, but not assaulting her. He was released in April 2012.

    Rule number one, ACT ALONE tell NOBODY, EVER. Don’t say cutesie innuendos at the bar.
    Plan. Make it quick and decisive. Know the risks. Do it. Shut your mouth. Repeat keep your
    mouth SHUT. Conscience may bother you on occasion and give you doubt about your actions. Ignore it, it’ll pass. Remember you did civilization a solid.

  • sarah stein

    She studied religion at UCLA in the housing projects of Chicago, so she was obviously down with the brothers. I believe her and Powell came up with this scheme to get rich. She and Powell will retire in the Bahamas.

    “Its unusual for a white girl to be in the building..” I dont see why. My wife and two daughters regularly go to the projects,to hang out.

  • animal race

    Nogs are animals. They were put in the jungles of African with the wildest of animals for a reason. It was no mistake. The land of Ham was brought into the western civilization but for pure ignorance and stupidity to be unneeded unwanted slaves. According to the ancient media white Shemites who wrote the Book they were cursed for sexual perversion and obviously had perverted bad genetics.
    African slaves were not needed 500 years ago and not needed now. So why are they still here? The white western Shem race according to the ancients and history endured with no problems in race or diversity or need for black slaves for 4000 years post flood.
    Whites who owned slaves all had bloody hands not for the black race but the white race whom they ruined and desecrated when it was all a complete waste that caused the 3rd worse massacre in white history other than WW1 where 30 million Euros perished and WW2 where 60 million died.

  • brengunn

    I said, ‘No, white and black don’t mix.’ ”

    I just can’t understand this reasoning, to recognise a girl is in physical danger, sexual danger, and to deny them shelter is savage, less than animal behaviour.

    I would’nt care, black, brown, white or yellow, if I seen a girl who was in imminent danger and I had the means to protect her, I would without thinking. All she had to do was open the door and call the police to come fetch her, that would have been the humane thing to do.
