Sharmeka Moffitt, a woman of African descent was attacked and set ablaze while out walking a trail in Winnsboro, Louisiana Sunday evening. Reports on social media said the woman was attacked for wearing an Obama tee shirt but the local sheriff’s office is denying those reports saying that Moffitt was not wearing any political attire. Little information has been released about her attackers by local authorities who are still investigating but it has been alleged that three white males with possible ties to the Klu Klux Klan are involved. Those reports remain unconfirmed at this time.
Sharmeka Moffitt was transported to LSUHospital located in Shreveport, Louisiana were she remains in critical condition. The Moffitt family has yet to make any public statements about the attack. Courtesy of www.blacktalkradionetwork.com
I am personally trying to get as much information as I can on this disturbing story. Not much is being said, a lot is being denied, at the same time there is an awful lot being said about this on social media. I believe that we are sadly mistaken if we think that racism and white supremacist are a thing of the past….to many people, this Presidential Debate is still about race, this is so sad to me.
