Subject: Media Ignores Two Black Teens Setting Mentally-Ill White Man on FIRE!

A disturbing story emerged over the weekend. Two teens in Rochester, New York set a 53-year-old mentally-ill man on fire, ultimately killing him. Interestingly, unlike many past stories written in The New York Times and USA Today, the races of the involved parties were not mentioned. In 2021, that’s rare. It turns out, the two teens are black and the now-deceased mentally-ill man was white.

I will ask a simple question: what if the roles were reversed? If two white teens randomly set a mentally-ill black man on fire, killing him — it would unequivocally be deemed an act of racism. Riots would break out, social media would go to war, buildings would burn, and talking points would appear around the clock.

Rochester journalist and radio host Bob Lonsberry reports that the two teens instructed the victim to tell authorities they were “white” as they burned him alive. The Daily Wire confirmed Lonsberry’s report.

The demand to lie about the teens’ skin color delivers a strong hint that the assault and murder was possibly racially-motivated. While the order does not definitively prove racism, it’s more evidence toward the label than most incidents the national media has called undoubtedly horrible acts of racism.

Columnist Amanda Prestigiacomo says, “News reports of the incidents concerning Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner and George Floyd, for example, were not shown to be connected to race, other than the media’s injection of the issue into the tragic incidents.”


ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Two teens are now charged with murder after the man they are accused of setting on fire last week on Lyell Avenue has died.

Zayvion Perry, 16, and Adriel Riley Jr., 14, are charged with second-degree murder.

They are accused of going into the apartment of Steven Amenhauser, 53, and dousing him with flammable liquid before setting him on fire. Amenhauser suffered burns over more than 70% of his body before he died.

There is still no word on a motive, but police say this was not a domestic incident.

Riley is being held without bail and Perry is being held on $50,000 cash bail, both at the county's children's center.

The Monroe County District Attorney's office says Perry will be prosecuted as an adolescent offender. Riley will be prosecuted as a juvenile offender. Both will be tried in youth part of superior court, not family court.

Captain Frank Umbrino said Amenhauser previously lost his wife, and then his long time girlfriend died in October.

"I've seen the pictures of this guy and knowing he has no family around to speak for him," Umbrino said. "This is one that I'll remember."

Umbrino says this is a case that will stick with him forever.
