FLASHBACK: Black Man Commits Racially Motivated Rape Against White Woman and Believes She “Deserved it” Because of “Slavery”
The man allegedly told a witness that she “deserved” being brutally attacked due to slavery, according to court papers.
“She was a white girl. She deserved it because us minorities have been through slavery,” Temar Bishop, reportedly said to someone who witnessed the battered 20-year-old woman following the assaults, according to a criminal complaint/.
“This is what they used to do to us. This is what they did to us during slavery. They used to beat us and whip us.”
Authorities arrested Bishop on June 14, 2019 in Virginia on a series of charges related to the June 1, 2019 assault, which officials have labeled a hate crime.
Bishop was on parole after serving a prison sentence at the time he committed the rape against the young woman.
The woman allegedly met with Bishop at the rooftop of a public housing building around 5 a.m on June 1, 2019.
Bishop started to punch her repeatedly before he proceeded to rape her. He then continued to brutally assault her by kicking and punching her until she was knocked out, according to police reports of the situation.
Bishop then fled the scene but returned with the unnamed witness. The witness saw the woman “laying on the roof landing with blood covering her face” — and then allegedly made the remarks about slavery, per the court documents.
The woman received treatment at a hospital in the area for various injuries, such as a broken nose and broken teeth. The criminal complaint stated that she was also “vomiting blood.”
The woman was treated at an area hospital for several injuries, including a broken nose and broken teeth. She was also “vomiting blood,” the complaint states.
Bishop received charges of two counts of predatory sexual assault, attempted murder, rape, two counts of assault, sexual abuse, assault and a hate crime.
Cases like these don’t receive much attention because they don’t fit a media narrative. Namely, the media ignore cases of hate crimes perpetrated by minorities but obsess about an exaggerated “white supremacy” threat.
If American racial relations are to improve, we must have honest discussions about crime and find proactive ways to help Americans of all backgrounds to clamp down on crime and hold each other accountable.
