Racists burn down pub with owner inside
Looking at my previous posts, I have been bringing you occurrences – both good and bad – in the interracial dating world. But I have come to one realization… as much as there is hope, we still aren’t there yet… we are still far from getting there. And after reading what I have for you today, then I will leave all the judging to you.
Two masked men walked into a Main Seafood and Pub on Monday morning, duct-taped the owner to a chair inside and set the pub on fire. Employees said owner Arun Krishnan was assaulted as he opened the building by attackers who bound him to the chair, made racial slurs against him and others, poured a fuel-like substance around the pub and then lit a cloth on fire. Lucky enough, Krishnan freed one of his arms from the chair and called 911 before the fire spread too far.
Krishnan is of Indian descent, and the pub’s disc jockey is African-American, manager Ernie Stamey said. He said the attackers harassed Krishnan about his workers and him being in interracial relationships. Workers call the attack a hate crime against the owner and employees of diverse racial backgrounds.They didn’t want to rob the place,᾿ said Linda Holcombe, a bartender at the restaurant. “They just wanted to send a message to Arun and burn the damn place down. It was definitely a racially motivated hate crime.᾿

Apparently, the attackers knew the names of many of the employees and allegedly said the pub was having a negative effect on the community.
When you stumble across such news in the midst of some good news, all I can ask is…Is it getting any better? Am I the only one who stumbles across such bad news? And the worst thing is that up until Monday evening, no arrests had been made. Negative effect on community? Somebody, please make me understand all this!!!
