Mother-of-Two Gets Face Transplant Five Years After Ex-Husband Doused Her in Industrial-Strength Lye

Helen Pow, Daily Mail (London), February 27, 2013

A mother-of-two whose estranged husband poured industrial-strength Lye over her in a horrific case of domestic abuse has received a face transplant.

Carmen Tarleton, 44, is thrilled with her new appearance, saying in a statement today: ‘My spirits are high and I feel really good and happy.’

More than two dozen doctors at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital worked for 15 hours earlier this month to give the disfigured Vermont woman new facial skin, including neck, nose, lips, facial muscles arteries and nerves.

‘This is a momentous opportunity in my life and I want to convey to my donors family what a great gift I’ve been given,’ Tarleton said. ‘I will do everything in my power to ensure a successful outcome.’

Tarleton’s life-changing face transplant is the fifth the Boston hospital has performed.

‘I think she looks amazing, but I’m biased,’ lead surgeon Dr. Bohdan Pomahac told reporters at a press conference today. The hospital hasn’t released images of Tarleton’s new appearance.

He said the patient was ‘probably out of the woods’ in terms of immediate vascular problems that could cause the whole face not to take after the dicey surgery.

Tarleton was doused in Lye by her former husband Herb Rogers in 2007 in a frightening case of domestic violence. She suffered chemical burns over 80 per cent of her body and her face was completely disfigured.

Pomahac said the medical team were equally happy and stressed after the operation.

‘Everyday we enjoy walking by her and seeing her getting better but we are also thinking constantly what could go wrong,’ he said. ‘There is no eureka moment, it’s really a few months later when the return of function comes and the patient is doing well and we are beyond most of the risks.’

The doctor said Tarleton can expect to regain almost full functionality in her face.

‘She will not be completely normal but what we will see is 80 per cent of normal function, 75 per cent,’ he said. ‘It depends on the patient, and she still had residual movement… so she should have a better result than someone who had completely nothing.’

But he said her recovery would take time.

‘Return of sensation will take about three months, motor function about 3-6 months and she’ll have a full return of functionality after a year or so. Slow improvements typically continue afterwards as well.’

Tarleton, who underwent 38 surgeries in the first 90 days since the attack, and 17 since then, said she looked forward to moving on with her life, now she has a more normal appearance, and putting the traumatic event behind her.

‘I feel great appreciation and gratitude for the tremendous gift I’ve been given,’ she said in the statement read out today by her sister.

‘I want to thank everyone at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Their focus and attention is remarkable… I have been so touched and so grateful for all that the community locally and globally have done for me.

‘I also want to acknowledge my family for their support and love. My sister and mother have been especially dedicated to my care and my daughters…

‘We are all excited to move into a new chapter of our lives together.’

A statement read out on behalf of the family of Tarleton’s female donor said they believed their loved one’s spirit lived on in the woman she’d helped.

‘While we are heartbroken at the loss of our beloved mother, daughter and wife… she has given the gift of life to four people,’ the statement from the anonymous donor’s family read.

‘Hers was a life of laughter and love and she had a smile that would brighten your day. Our loved one held fast to the belief that at the beginning and end of the day we are all family.’

Dr Pomahac said, despite taking her face, Tarleton hasn’t assumed the appearance of her donor, but she doesn’t much resemble the woman she used to be either.

‘There is really no transfer of appearance from donor to recipient,’ he told reporters.

‘It is really a summation of skeletal (shape) and facial (features) and every one of us is different. However, she probably won’t look a lot like she used to.’

Pomahac added: ‘The improvement is incredible.’

Tarleton remains blind in one eye. Doctors will assess the improvement in motor function around her eye in about six months to determine how much work needs to be done to regain the function of her eyelids.

The mother of two wrote a book about her experience that describes her recovery.

In it she claims that she wouldn’t take back what happened to her, insisting she is ‘more blessed’ now than she was before Rodgers broke into her home and unleashed his anger.

‘When life gives you a big negative situation like I’d been through, if you can get through that, you can really find all of the blessings and all of the positive things that can come out of that,’ she said.

‘And I found so much that I would not go back. I’m so much more blessed than I was then.’

While she lay in a hospital bed after surviving what doctors called ‘the most horrific injury a human being could suffer,’ Tarleton decided it did not have to ruin the rest of her life.

She had vivid dreams, including one where dozens of doors stretched around her and a voice said ‘Life is a choice,’ before the words appeared one at a time in white across a dark movie screen: LIFE IS A CHOICE.

Tarleton carried that lesson with her through her ongoing, daunting and remarkable recovery from the attack, which also saw Rodgers beat her with a baseball bat.

Tarleton’s book, to be published in March, is called ‘Overcome: Burned, Blinded and Blessed,’ and she hopes it will speak to everyone, not just victims of abuse.

‘I think I can help a whole bunch of people, not just domestic violence (victims),’ said the woman, who continues to undergo surgeries. ‘I think I can help a whole bunch of people wherever you are in your life.’

The book starts with Tarleton’s decision at 28 to move across the country from her native Vermont to Los Angeles, with her two children in tow, to work as a nurse at a UCLA hospital.

There she met Rodgers, whom she eventually married. The family moved back to Thetford, where her marriage started to unravel — in part over Rodgers’ dishonesty, she writes.

Tarleton recalls what she now says was a premonition. One evening when she was about to leave for her night shift at the hospital, her 12-year-old daughter was sobbing in her bedroom. When she asked what was wrong, her daughter said,

‘Something really, really bad is going to happen to you.’

Eight months later, it did. Rodgers is serving a minimum of 30 years in prison for the June 2007 attack.

When she set out to write the book three years later with only limited vision in one eye, she stalled when it came time to explain what Rodgers had done to her that night. She had to coach herself through it.

‘Alone at my magnifying machine, I felt physically ill with what I was doing,’ she wrote.

‘The experience of reliving that night, trying to capture every detail as vividly as I remembered it, was sickening. Halfway through, I let my pen drop and rushed to my bedroom, the edges of my limited vision blackening.’

It took her two days to write it. It was scary, but it was what she wanted to do, she said. She talked out the rest of the book and recorded it. She hired Writers of the Round Table Press to write it all down, including dialogue she had recalled.

‘I was paying attention, because some of it I couldn’t forget if I wanted to,’ she said.

She writes about facing Rodgers in court, how she dealt with being blind and disfigured, her pain, the help she has received from her community, family and friends, and how she came to forgive the man who maimed her so she could get on with her own life.

‘That’s where I feel people get stuck because we don’t have a segment of our society that says just because this terrible thing happened to you it doesn’t have to ruin the rest of your life,’ she said. ‘And I want to be the example of that because it doesn’t.’

Publishing the book was a no-brainer for Writers of the Round Table Press, said vice president David Cohen.

‘Taking that kind of experience and turning that energy into something positive and wanting to go out there and effect change with as much as she had to overcome, to me was just striking,’ Cohen said.

She has had several recent surgeries to install a catheter in her chest and was sick last winter with hyperthyroidism.

She has plans to write other books and has started a blog on the book’s website, in a bid to share her positive attitude with others.

    She looks great!

    • aaaaa

      That’s before the transplant. They haven’t released her recent photos.

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        I think that was his idea of a sick joke.

  • Uh-Oh

    This is representative of an element of black violence that never makes the stats, ie, the heinous nature of a lot of the specific acts. Lye, acid, the use of fire and accelerants, the overt use of ingested poisons, not to mention prolonged psychological and emotional abuse, and the sheer, incomprehensible senselessness of it, etc., all appear in the stats as just another case of domestic abuse and/or violence. They don’t even shock, anymore, unless the perpetrator is identified as white.

    • very good point, the sheer brutality, the over-the -top violence, the sadism never comes through. The same with the child abuse blacks are prone to

    • Nathanwartooth

      HBD chick just wrote a great piece that included how some African tribes are genetically predisposed to liking violence. They basically get off on it.

      It’s just another piece of the puzzle.

      • That goes along way in proving the “sociopath by nature” theory

    • HamletsGhost

      And the victim is almost always a woman. It either indicates cowardice of black men, or their insane hatred of anything better looking than themselves (i.e. everything) and a desire to deform as well as destroy.

  • Tim

    My Eureka moment came after the disconnect of seeing soccer moms with water bottles and reading abut Muslim revenge attacks. Build some kind of small motor that sits atop a quart water bottle which emptys the bottle ala Super Soaker to flush the eyes face and neck in just such an emergency…

    • brengunn

      Doesn’t lye react with water?

      • Bad_Mr_Frosty

        Yes, you’d have to neutralize it with vinegar or some other weak acid.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          Lye doesn’t “react” with water; it just dissolves in it. Quickly removing it from the skin is the name of the game. The same goes for acids, but with the exception of HF, acid burns tend to be localized on the surface of the skin. Alkaline burns can be pretty deep.

          My own worst chemical burn was from liquid ammonia; it wouldn’t heal, and I finally had to trim away the damaged tissue with a hobby knife before anything would grow back. My second worst was HCl dissolved in methanol, but that’s only because the burn became infected. The third worst was a mixture of concentrated nitric acid and isopropanol that I was using to clean crud out of glassware in grad school in Sydney. That stuff really tears up skin. The fourth worst was liquid bromine. I sure miss laboratory chemistry, but it has its down-side.

          Don’t worry about neutralizing lye if you get it on you; remove it as quickly as possible with plain water.

  • Stentorian_Commentator

    And, just to be clear, race mixing, at least blacks with whites, is just damn stupid.

    • John

      I have absolutely no sympathy for the disturbing and disgusting egalitarians who engage in very risky miscegenation. Of course, no civilized person enjoys seeing another person suffer, but how can any White woman be so ignorant as to date, socialize with, befriend, bed, or marry a Black or Brown? Heaven knows, life is hard enough for us all, but the truth is that foolish White women like her ask for it, and, as is most often the case, she got exactly what she asked for, may God help her.
      Of course, the egalitarians and feminists will squeal and bellow, “White men abuse women, too!” Respond to that highly disproportionate statement by simply saying, “Yes, and it snows in the southern Florida Keys, too.”

    • And I support the message.

    • TooOldAndToughToEat

      another story about a pretty white girl getting killed by her black husband:

      http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/us/advocates-seek-mental-health-changes-including-power-to-detain.html?pagewanted=all

      This one had a baby at 16 by another man (race unknown) and then had a baby by and married a black teen-aged schizophrenic. He killed her and the two children, tried to cut their hearts out, and blinded himself in prison, was sentenced to death. What woman in her right mind would marry and have a child by a man who hears demons commanding him?

      There was recently another case where a black woman was killed by the black schizophrenic father of her three children. If not for the welfare system, she would have been far more likely to steer clear of such a man.

      • guest

        Yes, without welfare, women would be far more conservative in sex, dating, and partner selection. There would be no miscegenation without welfare to take the risk (well, some of the risk) out of it for the woman.

        Liberals will use every strategy to destroy the white race. Welfare, a flood of illegal immigrants, “hate-whitey” school curiculums, forced integration via lawsuits, a flood of “asylum” Somalis in Minnesota and Maine – they will achieve their goal by any means necessary, because they know that socialism will never fly with white Americans, so the only solution is to remove whites from America.

  • pcmustgo

    She was from Vermont… lily-white state, un-informed about Blacks and the real deal.

    • The__Bobster

      They believe the magic ones they see in the movies.

    • not uninformed, willfully ignorant, they tend to blindly cling to their idealism up there

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    He was jealous of her white skin.

  • pcmustgo

    I knew a half black kid who’s black father knocked his white mothers teeth out. You know, before the usual 2 year split up.

    • The__Bobster

      I bet I know what race the kid identified with.

      • josh

        He a shtrong black mayne!!!

      • pcmustgo

        He identified most with whites… as did his sister. Was not heavily into the race thing. A lot of mulattos talk big about identifying with blacks, but the proof is in the pudding… who are they dating and socializing with? That’s the answer. I would say the split among mulattos is 75% identifying as Black and 25% as biracial/mixed race/honoring both sides. Also depends on which type of environment they were raised in, which parent was black, etc.

        • Cato

          You are right. My own children, from my own youthful mistake, identify with whites.

          • pcmustgo

            Cato, are you a white male or a white female? Did you go on to have other white children with whites or relationships with whites?

            A lot of this interracial stuff is a folly of youth. Youth cannot know better. Knowledge comes from experience.

          • Cato

            I’m a white male. And just to be clear: it was folly, as you said, born of ignorance and arrogance, but I still love all of my children, both the white ones and the muwallad.

        • BBB

          In my experience, the blacker-looking ones with, say, an Obama-like phenotype tend to identify with blacks, whereas the whiter or more ambiguous-looking ones seem to identify more with whites. In particular, the ones I’ve known who grew up in areas with few blacks definitely did not identify with blacks.

          • Bob

            I knew a woman who was half black and half Indian, referred to blacks as “them” and dated only white men. She really looked down on blacks.

          • David Ashton

            This is worth some serious sociological research, if it were possible.
            Also, there may be a degree of visual self-hatred among blacks in a white society which they would not feel among their own.

  • pcmustgo

    Are there ANY white males who beat their wives?

    • aaaa

      Yes.

    • aaaa

      I mean, this kind of violence is very rare for whites, but I’m not sure why even this would drive you to ask such a deluded, idiotic question.

  • [Guest]

    >>>Rodgers is serving a minimum of 30 years in prison for the June 2007 attack.

    This savage should have been charged, tried, sentenced to death, and executed within a couple of months of the attack.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    The tax man cometh, yet again. Black men only make up about 7% of the population, yet the ones who marry white women always seem to abuse them. Never worry though, the liberal media will keep peddling the “strong, suave, stud, archetype athlete, magic negro, black man”.

    • Nathanwartooth

      Yes they are stronger, faster, smarter and have bigger penises than Whites.

      I mean why would any White woman not want a Black?

      When I tell people about the statistical difference of violence and murder when marrying a Black people are shocked. People are truly blinded to the horrific truth.

  • josh

    What a monster! What a freak! The black? Well sure,yeah,but I am referring to the “woman”. What a spaced out lunatic monster. Had she not had the advantages of white mens science,my God,what would her life be like?? And she says she would not “go back” if she could! If she couldve avoided this monstrous terror–she wouldnt have because of the “blessings” she had received?I wonder if her family would agree with that?? Oh the blessings she brought into their lives! Maybe she should thank her dear loverboy Bantu?? “Ah jess knew dis was da right thang to do,to po dat lye on you! Iss all fo da bess!” She picked a Bantu to spend her life with–she is not worth all this care. I hope they learned a lot about the surgical techniques,so at least it will be worthwhile in that respect. Did her dear husband help pay for the operation,I wonder.

  • Katherine McChesney

    ‘…and how she came to forgive the man…’

    That was no man…he is a monster.

  • Snowhitey

    I think it is quite telling that his rage was directed at her skin. Her whiteness.

  • Fed Up

    I wish I could sympathize, but any White woman who marries a Black, deserves whatever she gets!

  • I was half-way feeling sympathetic for the woman until I got to “forgive him” part. Then I got to thinking, If I went off the african savannah and tried to mount a hyena, was maimed and disfigured in the process, would anyone feel sorry for me?

  • bigone4u

    I would say she’s lucky to be alive, but I don’t really quite believe that bit of pablum. Maybe her life can serve a higher purpose, like a warning to white ladies to avoid the groid.

  • “Tarleton’s book, to be published in March, is called ‘Overcome: Burned,
    Blinded and Blessed,’ and she hopes it will speak to everyone, not just
    victims of abuse”

    I can’t imagine what her book could possibly say to anyone.that the picture of her husband doesn’t already say.

    • rebelcelt

      What has she overcome? She is still burned ,blinded. Not trying to be mean or cynical, but claiming victory sounds hollow to me. I would have more respect if her book was White Woman You Just Do Not Understand Black Men. Then include a picture of herself. Also, just when it dawned on her that interracial marriage probably is not a good idea.

      • Judging by the looks of the ex husband, she probably knew it was a bad ideal from the very beginning, but she was determined to prove to the world that whites and blacks can live together and love each other and prove all the evil white racists wrong. Looks like her plan backfired because she proved just the opposite.

  • looks like this is a “tread lightly” topic

  • Luca

    If the races were reversed in this case, the black female victim would have a statue next to the Rosa Parks statue, She’d be on Oprah every three months, boulevards in ghettos across the US would be named after her and she’d be giving $10,000 a night speaking engagements at the temples of diversity and tolerance.

  • Ulick

    I watch a lot of detective/forensic shows about real murders. I’ve definitely noticed that some of the most violent and sadistic murders are black husband on white wife. It’s like they are venting not only their hatred of that woman, but their full hatred of all whites on that one person.

    • “Fatal Violence among Spouses in the United States, 1976-85”
      http://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/pdf/10.2105/AJPH.79.5.595
      Go to Table 3 “Racial Composition of Marriage” risk factors.

      -White females married to black males are 12.4 times more likely to be murdered by their husbands than white females married to white males.

      • Ulick

        Great share. That’s a pretty damning statistic, but I can’t say I’m surprised. Like I said, in these shows the black men don’t just kill their white wives. They often overkill them and then mutilate and desecrate the body.

      • Luca

        Wait a minute…this publication must be evil hate-speech fiction from some white supremacist group.

        Every commercial, every TV show and every magazine or internet ad I see shows that it is hip, progressive, cool and avant-garde, for a white woman to be mated-up with a sub-Saharan. Blacks are intelligent, wise, gentle, in-charge and they are everywhere in our society always saving the day for us dumb, ignorant, buffoonish whites. Besides, I recently heard that “Black people are the most talented people in the world.” (super-sarcasm)

        • {Going into progressive liberal mode……feeling my cranium and genitals shrinking}
          “We as responsible citizens must bury this inconvenient data, and in the name of acting responsibly broadcast the exact opposite of this findings to the general public, then we must vilify anyone who dares to uncover these mistruths, as truth equals hate. Burn down reality, burn down the truth!!”.

      • rebelcelt

        I wonder what that translate into White women getting the hell beat out of them? Black women are very aggressive and fight back, An abusive black man knows he could wake up to a hot grease bath. The white wife does not posses these things naturally or culturally and is just a victim waiting to happen. When they marry the Bantu they truly believe they are marrying someone like a white man.

  • HamletsGhost

    Wait for the TV movie on Lifetimes network. Guess what race the vile evil psychopathic lye-pouring husband will be? My bet is on Rutger Hauer in that role.

    The wise caring doctor, no doubt, who restores her face will be played by Morgan Freeman.

  • Jefferson

    I remember reading that Black male/White female married couples have the highest divorce rate in America. The overwhelming majority of such marriages do not succeed.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interracial_marriage_in_the_United_States#Black_and_White

    Which is not surprising that among White women who marry Bantus, the majority of them eventually become unhappy and miserable being married to their Bantu husband.

  • brengunn

    I’m not a fan of capital punishment but in cases like this I waver. I wish he could be doused in lye, the bastard.

    Facial burnings and severe scarring like this, is the most psychologically wounding an injury can be, maybe barring sexual violence. After WW1, the suicide rate for wounded soldiers was much higher for those with facial injuries than others with, say, loss of limbs etc.

    To see these animals get to live on, with no mark of justice. It gets to me.

They think all blacks are like bob marley, jimi hendrix and dr. huxtable….they don’t know what aspiring rappers and athletes are really like in their own neighborhoods after dark. This is the sort of thing that usually happens in Pakistan, not new england.

      There are still jews in russia? Even though she did something foolish I don’t think anyone deserves this…maybe the standard black eye and bad credit would have taught her the lesson, maybe not but no one deserves to be turned into a living horror like this…it would have been far more merciful to let her die…i’m pretty anti-commie myself…welcome aboard tovarish

      • I think what he is trying to construe is that he feels that she get what she deserved and that he feels no sympathy for her. I also find it hard to sympathise with white women who give themselves to black men only to be abused physically and psychologically later later, but this is extreme. I would expect something like this to happen in Pakistan because it DOES happen there but then again this guy is black so the only thing that surprises me about this case is his sadistic creativity in permanently maiming his white wife.

  • IKantunderstand

    Mea Culpa Mea Culpa! I am so sorry to have been born White. I am a plague on America, and, the world. Please allow me to sacrifice myself. I pledge as a White to always apologize for all the injustices ascribed to me; even if I had nothing to do with them. Nor did my parents. Nor did my grandparents. Nor did my great grandparents. Yet, I am guilty of all the sins. Hey, libs, while I still have Constitutional rights, I am not a plague on anyone! I am a proud repository of White European DNA. Any White woman who has offspring from mating with a Black has done nothing to improve the White race, but everything to improve the Black race.Let’s face it, we don’t need them, they need us. Let us stop sacrificing ourselves on the altar of egalitarianism; we as Whites, are superior to every race, ethnic and language groups, religions, cultures,food groups and whatever else oppressed groups the libs can hit us with (including cannibals-you know, those leftist media darlings). We are White! I don’t care if we are descended from space aliens or from extremely clever pairings from the Ice Age. The bottom line is this: We are smarter, more innovative, and definitely more likely to take a risk to accomplish something. Back in the 1500’s the Chinese were still trying to find a usage for gunpowder, The Arabs, couldn’t figure out whether they should have sex with men, women, or beasts. (They ultimately, decided it didn’t matter. (They could kill, whoever they decided was wrong.) Our country is descending into a cultural and religious wasteland. Do not allow Sharia law to take over, which could happen, because none of us pays any attention to the laws that are passed. You know, I’m getting ready to set up my own website. Let me know if you want the address of a crazy White person.I am also going to the Amren Conference. Are you?

  • Other Guest

    I was wondering too if he was a black muslim seeing how throwing acid to disfigure women’s faces is not uncommon amongst them. I have never heard of it in other populations. Also not uncommon is to neglect to mention important details like that in media reports.

  • LHathaway

    not to be a bigger jerk but is the photo her old face or the new one?

    Black men, at least i Really noticed it in the military, will use the word ‘female’ almost as if it is an insult. It’s hard to tell sometimes because when african american’s are talking to each other, sometimes it can sound like they are mad at each other, when that’s just their natural tone of voice, perhaps. Actually, if I remember right, most times black service men used the word ‘female’ and by what they were saying it Was intended to be a slur word. They’re such victims, u know, so anything they do is Ok.

    Of course, we may have the exact opposite problem in the ‘white community’ – the ‘problem’ of favoring women over men.

    I’ve even heard black women use the phrase ‘female’ as if were a slur, too. It’s an oppression they’ve ‘internalized’ from being exposed to all this ‘sexism’.

    To me, the disturbing image of her face represents the possible future of the white race and civilization itself if we fail in our efforts to defeat the current Marxist political establishment, and get non-Europeans OUT of our countries.

    • I concur. We will be permanently disfigured and mired in poverty if something isn’t done. I also applaud you for knowing that MARXISM by the “tribe” is the root cause of all of this and that blacks are simply a result of it.

      • Michael Mason

        Blacks in America represent an angry beast that has been let of the leash by this tribe. This tribe watches and smiles in the most devilish way as the beast rapes and disfigures us. Most of us are are oblivious to what is happening because we are in a drunken daze that was put upon us by media deception that is controlled by the tribe.

      I’ve been to China, and would never wish Rodgers on the people there. Surely there is an empty oil well somewhere we could put him down, while alive. I’ve been down one, and the sky looks very far away. If it wasn’t for dripping water, I could just about hear my own thoughts. He could drink the salty water that runs out of the rock, look at the sky, and do a lot of thinking. I suspect he might last about a week.

    A vast disproportion of vicious, barbaric attacks are done by Blacks. The face slashing of a co-worker at the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas, lately come to mind. Where you encounter sub-human bestial cruelty in the various media, a vast disproportion are done by Blacks. Afterward the photos on the perp show a comportment of no remorse or contrition, rather a sort of irritation that suggests resentment at being held responsible. Clearly this is beyond a cultural set of causes.

    When I began reading this and I saw the very unblack-sounding name “Herb Rodgers”, for a brief moment (I must have been day-dreaming) I wondered why it was on Amren. I awoke from my slumber when I saw the photo.

    I blame the school systems and media for these types of incidents. When I lived in Oklahoma City there was a very similar incident where the ex and her white daughter were doused with gasoline by the black ex boyfriend and set on fire. The mom died a few days later and the daughter- who was only about 6-7 at the time spent many months in the hospital and had numerous surgeries.

    I have to wonder if it is skin color. Several years ago I happened upon a news type show where the black husband was beating his wife and having their son video it. The woman was extremely light skinned and at first looked white but upon interview it was clear that she was mixed race- probably as much as 3/4 white. The husband was a medium to dark completed black man. The video showed him screaming insults at her, many of them based on. Her light skin color.

    • blaks don’t discriminate when it comes to who they beat, the name calling just adds to the high they get

  • She’s as much a victim of white guilt as she is a victim of her husband

    Hard for me to pity this Tarleton woman. I mean Vermont, strike 1. Marrying a black, strike 2.

    Better her than me. I bet she is still an Obama voter.

    Fathers, brothers and sons, protect your mothers, daughters and wives. Nature and Nature’s God has placed within man’s busom the very just desire for vengeance. Denying nature by “overcoming” reeks of cowardice and sets a dangerous example for others. I would want this vermin hung.

    How any White, especially a female, could engage in sex with something so primitive looking is beyond me.

    She looks about as bad as I run. Poor Carmen was never told about “them”. I’ve warned them before, but I’ll say it again here: if you hurt my mother, my sister, my wife or my daughter, I will bond you out of jail myself, and I will wait for you right outside.
