When will this all end? Future R&B Hall of Famer Lester Chambers was attacked on stage just after he announced that he was dedicating a song to Trayvon Martin.
The attacker was a 43 year old woman named Dinalynn Potter and is currently in custody facing possible hate crime and battery charges. Luckily Chambers only took on minor injuries.. but this once again shows why we have such a divided country today.
Kurt Crowbar Kangas, a musician filed the following report after the incident had occurred:
The woman who attacked him was white and yelled something like “it’s all your fault” before she hit him, he went down hard but was halfway caught by Barren, thank God, she was subdued by Police and taken away while the para-medics came and took him to a local Hospital where he went thru a series of cat scans, no broken bones, the only injury for now is a 8″ scratch in the kidney area of his back and it’s starting to swell.
No matter the race, there is always hatred toward people that are “different”. Why can’t we all just realize that we are Americans, which makes us no different from one another. In my opinion there should be no lines drawn by the color of ones skin or their beliefs, but rather their stubbornness and inability to be reasonable people.
