Hate Crime: White Supremacist Travels To New York Kills Random Black Man With Sword

White supremacist charged with murder after traveling to NYC to kill a black man. The wave of hate crimes following Donald Trump’s election continues.

James Harris Jackson, a white supremacist with connections to a documented hate group in Maryland, has been arrested and charged with first degree murder in the stabbing death of Timothy Caughman, a black man, in New York City.

Aubrey said Jackson's recent actions and information from interviews led police to believe the crime was "clearly racially motivated." NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill called the killing "extremely distressing." Jackson chose his victim at random, repeatedly stabbing Caughman in the back and chest as he was going through trash bins looking for recyclables.

The victim stumbled into a nearby police station for he for help, but later died at the hospital from the injuries. Police recovered a 26-inch mini sword, which they believe to be the weapon used in the stabbing, authorities said. Two days after the stabbing, authorities said Jackson walked into the same station house just after midnight and allegedly told officers "I'm the person you're looking for" after a uniformed station officer recognized him from a wanted flyer. He allegedly boarded a New York City-bound Bolt Bus from Baltimore Friday and booked a room at a Midtown hotel from Friday to Monday afternoon, police said.

The Maryland resident had been harboring feelings of hate toward black people for "over 10 years," police said. The fact of the matter is that white supremacists have been emboldened by Trump.

But just imagine for one second if the roles has been reversed: an undocumented immigrant or Muslim man with connections to an anti-white group expresses a long-held desire to kill white people, and then travels out of state to do it, targeting a random white woman to stab. The result would be wall-to-wall cable news coverage, a nearly-instantaneous Trump tweet—"Appreciate the congrats for being right on illegals,” it would probably read. “I don't want congrats, I want toughness and vigilance. We must be smart!”

 Army veteran James Harris Jackson, 28, took a Bolt Bus from Maryland on Friday to “target male blacks” in the city, said Assistant Chief William Aubry of Manhattan South Detectives. He particularly didn’t like black men who were romantically involved with white women, sources said.

“The reason why he picked New York is because it is the media capital of the world,” Aubry said. “He wanted to make a statement.” Jackson, who served in the Army for four years, identifies as a white supremacist and told police he penned a manifesto about his racist views, the police sources said. That screed, Jackson told police, contains information about an imminent attack on blacks in New York. He said it is saved on a computer seized by the NYPD, but cops need a search warrant to look at it, the sources.
