Police: Black man hates on disabled white official

CARNEGIE, Pa. (AP) — Police have charged a black man with harassing a Pittsburgh-area borough official by screaming “I hate white people” as the woman arrived early for a council meeting.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 40-year-old David Settles, of Carnegie, whose phone number has been disconnected

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports today that Carnegie police filed harassment and disorderly conduct charges Tuesday against Settles stemming from the July 9 encounter with Carnegie borough Councilwoman Carol Covi.

The 65-year-old white woman, who uses a motorized scooter because of a disability, tells police that Settles ran up to her that afternoon and shouted, “I hate white people. I hate all white people.” Police say Settles also screamed profanities and told the 4-foot-7-inch woman to leave or “you’ll be sorry.”

If that were a white guy yelling this to an elderly, disabled black woman, Sharpton and Jackson would be all over it.

Why the double standard, "reverends." Shouldn't godly men be impartial?

NilesOhio you too need to "settle" down. Sharpton and Jackson do not flock to every racist implication anywhere in the country... that is just ridiculous. The man has been charged. Let the system work it out now.

Blacks don't have the capacity to be racial. This was just a simple misunderstanding due to the hot weather.

Oh, I could just see the massive media outrage on this if it was the opposite. Sharpton, Jackson, New Black Panthers, blacks, etc would on come to Carnegie, PA, for the protest, racism, riots,lawsuit, conviction, bounty on the white guy. But of course since it's not, it's just a little article in a local paper. smh

L2S If they give this story too much coverage, his attorney will complain that he can't get a fair trial. They would have to move it else where
