Crickets from the mainstream media concerning Lionel McIntyre, an African American Columbia University professor of architecture who punch a female colleague in the face. I wonder why? Could it be because McIntyre’s faculty biography on his Columbia University web page reads as though he is the perfect champion of civil rights and equality?Could it be because he is African American?
“From the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, Professor McIntyre worked in civil rights and labor organizing in the deep South. His international experience began with travel abroad in 1972 as co-liaison for the first “People to People Friendship Delegation” to the People’s Republic of China and conducted a subsequent study tour in 1979…”Pl
Please do explain to me how the description above translates into his actions below:
Police refuse to charge Columbia professor with hate crime after alleged attack on co-worker
November 11, 2009
By Dave Gibson
On Monday, New York City police arrested Lionel McIntyre, 59, an architecture professor at Columbia University, for punching a woman in the face, and slapping another man. The alleged attack took place the previous Friday night at Toast bar in Harlem. The woman, Camille Davis, who also works at Columbia University was left with a heavily bruised face, after taking what witnesses described as a closed-fisted punch in the face from McIntyre.Bar employee Richie Velez told the New York Post: “The punch was so loud, the kitchen workers in the back heard it over all the noise. I was on my way over when he punched Camille and she fell on top of me.”Waiter, Rob Dalton said: “It was a real sucker punch. Camille’s a great lady, always nice to everybody, and doesn’t deserve anything like this.”McIntyre, who is black was having an angry discussion about racial issues and in particular about so-called “white privilege,” with both of his alleged victims, who are white.
The man who McIntyre allegedly attacked, only wishes to be identified by his first name, Shannon, told the Post: “He knocked the glasses right off my face. The punch came out of nowhere. Mac was talking to us about white privilege and what I was doing about it — apparently I wasn’t doing enough.”
McIntyre reportedly had an argument with Davis a few weeks earlier over race. He has been charged with assault and was released without bail.
McIntyre told the Post that it was “a very unfortunate event.”
Why are the actions of Dr. Mcintyre not being explored as a hate crime? The facts clearly state that this was not his first argument with Ms. Davis. Surely he harbored some anger towards her because she was white and privileged.
Here is a video response to the crime:
In October of this year, President Obama signed expanded hate crimes legislation into law, explaining that the provision would “strengthen the protections against crimes based on the color of your skin, the faith in your heart, or the place of your birth.”
Where are you NOW? Will someone please step up for Camille Davis.
Or does the left believe that she behaved “stupidly”?
Will Obama have a tea summit in order to mend fences between the two?
Of course Camille will have to pack on the Derma Blend in order to look presentable for his majesty.
