An African American man was arrested and charged with rape and ethnic intimidation after allegedly telling a woman he raped her "because she's white."

From Pittsburgh's Action 4 News:
A man was arrested after being accused of raping a woman in Pittsburgh’s Uptown neighborhood “because she’s white.”

Public safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said officers determined 47-year-old Lee Harris was inside an apartment in the 5200 block of Gertrude Street in Hazelwood early Saturday morning.

...According to the criminal complaint, Harris ordered a woman at knife-point into an abandoned building in September.

The victim, who is not being identified since she is a victim of sexual assault, told police she knew Harris from seeing him in the neighborhood before but she never knew his name and didn’t have a relationship with him.

When she walked home, Harris passed her then decided to walk with her.

In the criminal complaint, police state the victim and Harris approached the intersection of Watson and Jumonville streets, and Harris “pulled out a knife from his pocket, put it to her neck and ordered Jane Doe to walk to an abandoned building.”

She complied, fearing he would kill her.

Once inside, “she was forced to go to the second floor where Harris pushed her into a small room.” It’s there he allegedly assaulted, raped and threatened the woman.

When she asked why he was doing it, he told her “because you’re white.”

Harris was arrested on a series of charges including rape, sexual assault and ethnic intimidation.
While it's not in any write-ups, including the one from Pittsburgh's Action 4 News, reporter Kelly Brennan said in her video report: "Court documents do show that he was charged with rape in 2011 and at that time did spend time in Allegheny County Jail."

CNN, NBC News, CBS News and The Washington Post have all ignored this story entirely. I guess they were too busy covering the latest SPLC report which covered-up 2,000 cases of hate directed against white people.
