Saturday night in Mobile, Alabama, four black men inside a speeding car almost ran over 40-year-old Wendy Fisher’s dog. That made her angry enough (and rightly so) to yell out at them and scold them for speeding through her neighborhood. Their response was to turn their car around, come back to where Miss Fisher was and fire several shots at her, at least one of which hit her in the chest. The mother of two died shortly afterwards.
At first the media in Mobile did not report the race of the shooters (according to several commenters in the linked article). This was the website (al.com) that in March of this year posted a KKK cartoon that criticized the shooting of Trayvon Martin by Sanford, Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. It will be interesting to see what kind of response al.com has to Wendy Fisher’s murder. We all know their response will be lacking at best.
It is sad that Wendy Fisher died at the hands of barbarians. White women must be warned that a good number of non-white men will not take a scolding from anyone, especially a woman. While chivalry is a somewhat diminished philosophy among some white men, it is still predominately a white trait and all white women should be made aware of that fact. White men will, for the most part, let female strangers yell at them without getting physically violent, but if a white woman confronts and scolds/yells at a non-white man, especially a black man, she is risking her life.
Mobile police identified the woman as Wendy Fisher, who was shot in the chest by one of several gunshots fired at her, police spokeswoman Ashley Rains said.
Fisher was taken to University of South Alabama Medical Center, where she died, Rains said.
Rains said that an “altercation” took place between Fisher and a group of men who were not known to her. Rich confirmed earlier reports that the confrontation involved speeding on Racine Avenue, a street that connects Overlook Road and Moffett Road and is frequently used as a shortcut by motorists. The shooting scene is located close to the Overlook Road end of Racine
