Here’s yet another news story about a naive White girl, who made the mistake of dating a Black man, and in this case wound up paying with her life. The liberal Washington Post reported this story, but left out any pictures of Rowland and failed to mention that he was Black.
A Washington Post article reports “Lauren McCluskey, a track and field athlete for the University of Utah’s track and field team, was found shot to death Monday night in a car outside a campus residence hall. The suspect, a 37-year-old registered sex offender named Melvin Rowland, was later found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot…”
“In a statement released Tuesday morning, McCluskey’s mother, Jill, described her daughter’s final moments.”
“’Last night a little before 9 pm, she was returning to her university apartment from her night class and talking to me on the phone,’ she said. ‘Suddenly, I heard her yell, ‘No, no, no!’ I thought she might have been in a car accident. That was the last I heard from her. My husband called 911. I kept the line open and in a few minutes, a young woman picked up the phone and said all of Lauren’s things were on the ground.”
“Jill McCluskey also said her daughter had ‘previously dated her killer for about one month’ before she ended the relationship on Oct. 9 after learning of Rowland’s criminal history. McCluskey also said that Rowland harassed her daughter after the breakup.”
Did Jill McCluskey know that her daughter was dating a Black? Did she or her husband ever warn Lauren that it’s dangerous to date Black men or was it more important for them to not sound racist? How many thousands of White women have gotten themselves into horrible messes because no one ever warned them about Blacks?
One of Lauren’s friends found out about Rowland’s criminal past, but the time to do a background check is BEFORE dating someone, not after. There’s a nation-wide sex offender registry here which could have been searched for Melvin Rowland and which would have revealed his criminal record. Sometimes a city or state will have criminal records that can also be searched, and there are dozens of pay-for-info websites that will search for a criminal background.
Black men can become very obsessive over a relationship with a White woman, and turn to violence if the relationship falls apart. The most famous example of this was former football star, O.J. Simpson, who physically abused his White wife, Nicole, got divorced and then finally killed her.
White parents should warn their daughters that they shouldn’t date Blacks. It’s the role of the parents to make sure their children go out into the world with enough information to be safe.
Just because the liberal television doesn’t portray Blacks accurately, doesn’t give White parents a pass. They have a moral obligation to tell their White daughters that Black men can be deceitful, obsessive and extremely violent and that dating one will go bad if not fatal.
