No one saw the sign that said, “No White People Allowed After Dark.” Maybe because it was dark. Or maybe it did not exist.

So when a white family pulled into a Baton Rouge gas station in a black neighborhood 10 p.m. Sunday night after a Mother’s Day celebration, they had no idea they were in danger. But they were.

Donald Dickerson, a black man, told them so, right before the assault began that would leave the father with a broken face, the mother unconscious, and the daughter badly bruised.

All because they were the wrong color in the wrong place.

WAFB television news captures the crime from police reports. The spokesman for the police department said a man wearing a pink shirt was in line trying to pay for gas when Donald Dickerson, 41, started making fun of him, leading to an argument.

“The defendant (Dickerson) approached the white male victim,” the police report stated.

It went on to read, “the defendant told him he was in the wrong neighborhood and he was not going to make it out.” The victim said that’s when he “was punched and knocked to the ground.”

At this time, his wife got out of the car and ran to help her husband. The victim said, “he continued to struggle with the defendant and was eventually knocked unconscious, which later he awoke in the hospital.”

His wife told police, “after running to help her husband, she remembers falling to the ground and (being) knocked unconscious.”

According to a close family friend, that’s when the couple’s teenage daughter got out of the car to check on her parents and, “observed a female punch her mother in the face, when her mother then fell to the concrete, hitting her head on the surface.”

The daughter was also punched in the face.

The man suffered a broken eye socket, a broken nose and several cuts on the face, said the police report.

Dickerson was charged with a felony and taken to jail. The other two involved in the assault were charged with misdemeanors, given tickets at the scene, and released.

No one has been charged with a hate crime. Police have not identified the victim or his family. So no one has had a chance to ask if he was aware he was in a black neighborhood. Or if he ever heard of Routine Activities Theory. Otherwise known as R.A.T.

R.A.T. played a central role last year in a Chicago court room where the city had to pay a white woman $22.5 million after she was arrested, then released into a black neighborhood in Chicago.

She was assaulted and tossed – or jumped – from a seven-story building, leaving her with permanent brain damage.

Harvard sociology professor Robert Sampson, one of the country’s top experts on R.A.T., testified the R.A.T. made it clear that a white person in a black neighborhood can reasonably expect to meet with violence.

The judge explained R.A.T. by saying the victim “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 R.A.T. was thinly disguised racial profiling and had no business at trial. But at the trial, R.A.T and race were everywhere – no matter how hard the city worked to keep it out. No matter how dedicated local media were to ignoring it.

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.”

There is no indication that Dickerson knew anything about a competing theory called Critical Race Theory, popularized by one of Barack Obama’s professors at Harvard, Derrick Bell.

This theory says that white people, good or bad, are racist. As is every institution in America. Permanently.

For the more academically inclined, this explanation from the UCLA School of Public Affairs may be more complete:

Critical Race Theory recognizes that racism is engrained in the fabric and system of the American society. The individual racist need not exist to note that institutional racism is pervasive in the dominant culture. This is the analytical lens that CRT uses in examining existing power structures. CRT identifies that these power structures are based on white privilege and white supremacy, which perpetuates the marginalization of people of color.

This theory is popular with educators at all levels of school.

At first, the R.A.T. and C.R.T. might seem conflicting. But if you think about it, it is plain they both predict a similar result for white people who accidentally end up in black neighborhoods. At night. When there are no warning signs.

  1. Breaking the law is breaking the law and racism is racism, I don't care what color the law breaker is or what color the racist is. Black violence against anyone, black or white is wrong in ANY neighborhood. Why can't a white person stop for gas anywhere and expect to be safe; a black person stopping anywhere for gas expects to be safe. So who really is the racist?

    • Hahaha and white people are the racist ones? Marvin, you are one of the most hateful, ignorant and intolerant people I have ever come across on the internet. What if someone said "let's hang a black man from a tree!!!" How up in arms would you be about that??? Are you from the south? I take it that you are because I have yet to meet a black man/woman from the north that is racist like you are. You are the reason we need to get rid of warning labels, let natural selection take it's course.

    • Amanda Russell Felhofer By natural selection do you mean sickle cell anemia, diabeetus from eating shitty fast food and drinking red kool-aid, & heart disease from smoking newports?

  2. So the studies says, black people cannot be trusted, so white people should never give them the benefit of the doubt. I didn't say it… R.A.T and C.R.T said it. UCLA, a liberal institution promoting racism.

  3. Those that perpetrate these types of crimes are not humans. They are less than animals and thus do these types of things. Some of them even call themselves Christians. Those morons that condone it in our education system are the same lower bread of something less than animals, maybe demons, lost forever!

    • Vickie Matias: You're a fool! Blacks have become even more racist ever since Obama took office. Learn facts idiot!

    • They have always gotten away with committing crimes. Obama didn't change that. Trayvon Martin would have been in prison if he was white, instead the media wanted to frame Zimmerman for defending himself. If this couple tried to defend themselves Al Sharptongue would be there blaming the white people.

    • The blacks who are "disadvantaged" are so because they choose making babies over getting educations and jobs first. Teenage mothers, young black maen who father children with each girlfriend. These are the real reasons, not some phony racism, that keeps black people at the bottom of society. Louis Farrakan of the nation of islam said whites want us to deny our nature! That nature is what makes so many blacks unable to advance themselves in society, period!

    • Thank you! It seems beyond people that your and you're are different words with different meanings.

    • Vickie Matias why dont we just respect all people around us…outer skin is just temporary coverings of our natural self…our soul or spirit is neither black or white…..why dont we just love one another….share n give…

    • The idea that we are all permanently racist is a new idea. (And a crazy one, since so many of us in America are 'mutts'.) Before Barack Obama, racism was dying. He got on the patient's bed, and gave it CPR. "Live!" Obama said to Racism, "LIVE so that I may be KING!!" So Mr. Obama enlisted the help of the Black Panthers. And Al Sharpton. The NAACP. Beyonce. Even Vickie Matias here. And he promised them all, "We will PUNISH OUR ENEMIES!" Which appealed to their vindictive, evil hearts. The idea that America is "racist" is totally absurd and denies the critical and supportive role black generations have had in the development of America, and the"black America" that emerged with advents such as Black Entertainment TV, Ebony magazine, taking over sports, segments of the entertainment industry. Blacks were becoming successful. But instead of celebrating that, Barry Soetoro worked hard to resurrect racism from the past in America, supporting any leftover hate from unsuccessful blacks, and with the help of his "educated" friends from our liberal indoctrination cent… um, I mean, universities, and his friends in Hollywood, (who, by the way, are starting to turn on this so-called President, as he is going down in flames) all of them have been intimidating Americans now for years, calling them all "racists" – these clowns should come down here to Texas and see all the blacks, whites, and Hispanic women out shopping as friends, partying as friends..caring about each other, loving each other, and blind to their own skin colors… they don't like this guy, Barry. The American Public won't stand for this kind of behavior with the IRS, in Benghazi, no matter what color you are..and thus, IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS ARE ON…. And as I predicted, this "black" president (really white and arab) will make it difficult for ANY REAL BLACK MEN or WOMEN to BE THE PRESIDENT AFTER THIS! Barry has been SUCCESSFUL at resurrecting racism across this land. PLEASE DON'T LET HIM CHANGE THE WONDERFUL MULTI-RACIAL COUNTRY WE ARE. Which is one of the many reasons why I support ALLEN WEST in 2016!!!! He is the most PRESIDENTIAL man we've had running in America. Do you know him?? Check him out! Yes.. .he's black. Don't let that stop you! He's a GREAT MAN. If you're wondering about me, I'm a mutt. I'm all colors. I'm even part Native American. LET'S ALL GET ALONG! *hugs*

    • The only group that got more crazy after Obama got elected, is old white people. I'm white, I'm 50, and I know plenty of them.

    • Craig Tully , actually that would be Asians. And they are only racist in the way that they keep to themselves, and don't trust others.

  4. the inner city black community is by far… more racist now, than any other group.
    Well then, the Muslims aren't racist… they just what everyone that isn't of their faith(?) to be beheaded. I'm going to guess that being white, you have no rights and deserve to be beaten or beheaded, according to the world of Obumma and PC politics.

    • People like who, Vickie? People who dare say the truth about the state of blacks in America. No Vickie, it is not racism that makes blacks the majority of prison inmates or lead in teenage mothers or unwed mothers or high school drop outs, it is the failures in black American culture!

    • Vickie Matias , APPARENTLY YOU RACIST. OBLAMA IS NOT A BLK MAN HE IS A ZEBRA….1/2 WHITE,1/2 BLK, YET MOST OF YOU BLIND PEOPLE THINK HE IS GREAT, YOU ALL ARE MISSING gOD.

    • Vickie Matias: People like you make me sick. Lazy, stupid, uneducated, welfare taking, white people blaming, pit bull owning, smelly, stinky, double digit IQ, excuse making, professional baby factory minorities who do so only to keep collecting checks while hard-working Americans like me pay for it via the govt tit.

      Keep letting that pitbull of yours (capone – named after a white gangster hahaha) around them chitlins so he can maul their face off when they fight over a chicken bone…I can't wait to see the news story of you getting locked up!

      Remember folks…AROUND BLACKS NEVER RELAX!!!

    • Keith, have you even been to the "inner city?" If a black guy looked at you wrong, would you fumble for your gun, or piss your pants?

    • Why hasn't the NAACP been labeled a hate group? The black caucus? Ebony magazine? Miss black America, We even have a racist occupying the WH. Would you ever be nervous surrounded by Chinese or Indians? Black people are taught to perpetuate racism and poverty.

  5. Tim oh yes let's blame racism on Obama really I think this is a race crime and if the sign exist they should get a pic. Any one should e able to go into any neighborhood this is breaking the law but definitely arace crime

  6. The people that did this to the white people needs to be killed. No court just kill them. If whites did this to blacks it be reported on ever net work in the world. This will not be reported because they are white.

    • No Vickie, you are the one who appears ignorant. These white people had every right to pull into that neighborhood for gas. The black people do not own that neighborhood, tax payers do. If it were reversed, and white people did this to a black family, the world would know of it by now. Hush, hush now though, it was just a white family that had their faces broken or were knocked to the ground. Does being black make it alright for them to beat the crap out of white people? Maybe, white neighborhood need to start posting signs that say blacks are not allowed after dark. Oh, that's right, that would be racist right? I love how black people expect to be treated equally, and yet they are allowed to do this. Now who is ignorant again?

    • Vickie Matias: You are one of the most ignorant black racists I have ever come across. People like you oppress and bring a bad name to your own culture. You want to be respected? Well, guess what!?! Respect is EARNED! And so far, you're not earning it with your idiotic remarks

  7. This Dickerson character and the other two should be charged with a hate crime also the other two should also be charged with more than tickets and misdemeanors. This is pure bullshit!

  8. Where is all the press? Why is this not a hate crime? The double standard is so glaring that only Obamabots, the true believers, can't see it.

  9. what's the old Cheech and Chong line… oh yeah " it's night time and night time ain't no time for ya'll to be in this neighborhood".

  10. what's the old Cheech and Chong line… oh yeah " it's night time and night time ain't no time for ya'll to be in this neighborhood".

  11. If I lived anywhere near that town, I'd be driving up and down those streets with about 100 of my closest friends. When a dog bites you, you kick his ass and he doesn't do it again. You Frenchies down in Louisiana need to grow some balls.

    • Is there any better argument toward giving black racists the segregation that they seem so intent on? There aught to be a law! And what does the NAACP (racist by name and intent) have to say?

  12. It's only a hate crime if the target is a member of a Designated Victim group. Otherwise, they'd call it a racially motivated crime. According to Critical Race Theory, some racially motivated violence is justified, due to the inherited guilt of being born a member of the Designated Oppressor race.

  13. Conceal and Carry people. This will put a quick stop to this nonsense. Remember they pick on who they think they can easily overwhelm. If you draw out a.45 on them, they will run like scared little babies home to their mommies…

  14. sure sounds like a hate crime! you know it would have been a hate crime if the white man would have beat the crap out of the black (i don't even want to call him a man) seems more like a child. I mean he 41 years old making fun of some one and starting a fight :( grow up loser!

  15. Did you see this all over the news? What no? Turn it around, it would be on the news, there would be marches, major faces of the african community would be standing up for the cause.. Sadly its not the same because reverse racism is tolerated. It will be until people are not afraid of being called a racist. Standing up for being right doesn't make you a racist.

  16. Dog whistle much? What a sorry excuse for journalism. These comments are just sad, make me ashamed to live in the same country as you ignorant shits. It's a terrible thing what happened to this family and everyone here cheapens it by making it into a racism thing rather than a crime/class issue.

  17. this a hate crime…I used to live very near there…I've got a lot of black friends that agree with me on this beind a hate crime….so piss on you.I've SEEN how the damn coonass niggers act….and vicki…..I'm white and not racist.

    • if I offended anyone about this,i'm sorry….but this just pisses me off!!….I've come to terms with myself about color of skin thanks to my Aunt Charlotte,and have done very well,but I just hope this stuff stops with all peoples of ANY color of skin

  18. I've met and done business with some really wonderful African American people and white people as well. I've also met and done business with some really awful African American people and white people as well. Skin color doesn't matter, it's the person's character that counts. There are good and bad in every culture around the world, without fail, without exception. Maybe we should all start judging each individual person on his or her merits and stop generalizing based on the color of the skin!
