White Fragility Digest #13: 29 May 2018

Racist explodes in court after hate crime attack on child and father: ‘Hitler should’ve gassed n*ggers’


25 MAY 2018 AT 11:25 ET

An Arizona man delivered a racist rant in a Utah courtroom as he was sentenced to nine months in prison for a hate crime against a black child and his father.

Mark Porter used a racial slur against the 7-year-old boy Nov. 3, 2016, at their apartment complex and then zapped the child’s father with a stun cane when he intervened, and a jury convicted him in March of committing a federal hate crime with a dangerous weapon, reported KSTU-TV.

“I just said, ‘Get out of here you little stinking n*gger,'” Porter told FBI agents during his arrest, which was recorded on body camera video. “I said, ‘I got something for you,’ and I come out, and I held my Zap Cane out, right? And [the father] walked up against it, and it went against his chest.”

The 59-year-old Porter moved from Draper to Arizona since the incident but was extradited back to Utah to face charges.

Porter ranted against black people during his arrest in September, and he delivered another racist tirade during his sentencing.

“See, Hitler had the right idea, the wrong people,” Porter told FBI agents. “Should’ve gassed n*ggers.”


"White people in North America live in a social environment that protects and insulates them from race-based stress. This insulated environment of racial protection builds white expectations for racial comfort while at the same time lowering the ability to tolerate racial stress, leading to what I refer to as White Fragility. White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium."
