JACKSON, MS — Four white men were involved with the brutal killing of an innocent Black man on the evening of June 26, 2011. James Craig Anderson, the victim of the senseless attacks, met his fate in the parking lot of Metro Inn, a motel located in the Mississippi state capital.
The adult white males, whose ages ranged from their late teens through their early twenties, took it upon themselves to regularly terrorize innocent Melanoid people who were defenseless (such as disabled individuals) or innocent Melanoid people who didn’t have the voice or resources to speak up for themselves in court (such as homeless individuals, or people suffering from alcoholism).
The premise of their forays into the streets of Jackson was known as going to “Jafrica”–a word play combination of “Jackson”, the city in which they would commit the crimes, and “Africa”–a reference to the city’s large population of Melanoid people. Earlier in the evening of June 26, the men, led by Deryl Dedmon, Jr., went to Jackson so that they could (in the words of Dedmon), “go fuck with some niggers”.
After confronting Mr. Anderson in the motel’s parking lot that night, the four white men severely beat him, chanting “white power” in the process, then appearing to leave the man bloodied and barely able to walk. Dedmon gets in his Ford F-250 truck, accelerates the gas, and crushes James Craig Anderson with the vehicle.
As a result of the damages done by the men, a federal judge has ordered that they pay the late Mr. Anderson’s family $840,000 in restitutions.
