So we’ve had our eye on this story from Claremont, NH for a while now. It sparked national headlines because it allegedly involves a group of racist teenagers trying to lynch a biracial 8 year old boy. At least that’s what the headlines say. It all started on August 28 when Cassandra Merlin posted this on her Facebook page:

It’s a scary situation, and obviously this kid was in fact choked by a noose. But notice that race isn’t mentioned at all in her post.

The child’s uncle Lyrik Merlin posted that day about the situation, and then the next day he turned it into a racial thing:

The cops have obviously investigated this and a month later no one has been arrested. More than likely because it was an accident. This took place at the home of one of the children who allegedly did this. The parents of this child did an interview with Newsweek the other day, in which they disputed that it was intentional. According to them the kids were doing what kids their age always do in Claremont – fucking around with nooses on a picnic table.

“I don’t think any of it is coming from [the boy],” Sullivan said. “I think it’s all coming from the grandmother and the mom. … I was there when the cops questioned them, and there was no mention about any of this. [The boy] had the same story as the [teens].”

So an actual witness whose house the incident took place at, is telling the media that the 8 year old boy and his attackers all told the cops that it was an accident from fucking around. No adults witnessed the event, including Quincy’s Mom or Grandma, who are now experts on exactly what happened. Just kids. The Chief of Police announced that he wouldn’t release the name of the 13 year old who allegedly did this because….ya know….he’s 13 and hasn’t been arrested for anything:

After that Mom decided the police weren’t doing their job so she decided to kick it up a notch. First she interviewed with the racist website The Root, owned by legendary race baiter Dr. Henry Louis Gates, and started turning it into a narrative that the racist white cops were covering up a hate crime:

“[Comments like the one the chief made] show he doesn’t understand the severity of the situation,” Merlin tells The Root. “Because at the end of the day, Quincy could have died. I feel like they’re not taking it as seriously because he didn’t die.”


Or they’re not “taking it seriously” because Quincy and his older friends were doing stupid kid shit and he got hurt. In reality the cops are taking it seriously, there’s just no one to charge with a crime because a crime was not committed, never mind a hate crime. Hasn’t stopped Cassandra Merlin for throwing more race accelerant on the fire:

It’s funny that she’s so concerned about racism, especially since she routinely shares memes that many would consider racist:

Not me, because I don’t give a shit about words. But many would.

Then the story really took off. And as people started reading that the cops weren’t doing anything about the racially motivated lynching, SJWs weren’t liking that and demanded that the chief be fired for doing his job….

They even started a Change.org petition. So you know they mean business!

Except here’s the problem – this is black child who was allegedly the victim of a racially motivated hate crime:

We normally don’t share pictures of kids, but since Mom is putting him out there for the world to see as a victim of racism, the fact that he’s clearly white is a big part of the story.

You can say what you want, but that kid would never be the victim of racism, because everyone looking at him is gonna assume that he’s white. This is Dad:

The hat…..

I’m sure you’re all shocked to hear that he’s not around anymore. You’ll also notice that he is also…..white. Two white parents and a white child. Hate crime. Makes sense.

She also started making up stories about how he’s been taunted for being black in school:

Unfortunately for Quincy, the incident was not the first time he dealt with racial bullying. His mom says his “baby fat” and “brown skin” make him a target.

“When they were teaching in school about slavery, kids would tell him they couldn’t play with them because they were white and he was black,” she says. “And he’s had kids call him the n-word, and tease him for being a different race.”

Yea, I’m sure that happened. Motivated by a 2nd grade lesson slavery, this kid was told by his white peers that he couldn’t play with them anymore because he was black, live slaves:

That DEFINITELY happened. Definitely.

But as the story has garnered more attention, Mom has turned this accident of kids playing a stupid game more and more into a racial thing. A week or so after the incident happened, she was adding new elements to the story:

The boy’s grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, said her grandson and a group of teenagers were playing in a yard in their neighborhood around 5 p.m. on Aug. 28 when the teens started calling the boy racial epithets and throwing sticks and rocks at his legs. The situation escalated when some or all of the teens stepped up on a picnic table and grabbed a nearby rope that had been part of a tire swing, Slattery said.

“The (teenagers) said, ‘Look at this,’ supposedly putting the rope around their necks,” Slattery said. “One boy said to (her grandson), ‘Let’s do this,’ and then pushed him off the picnic table and hung him.”

Last Monday wasn’t the first time the neighborhood teenagers used racial slurs against the boy, Slattery said, leading her to believe her grandson was targeted because he is biracial. She said she heard the term “lynched” was used during the incident. According to Slattery, no adults witnessed what happened, so she and others have been forced to piece events together from accounts of the children who were there. Among those in the backyard at the time was the boy’s 11-year-old sister, who went and found their mother, Cassandra Merlin, shortly after the incident.

So let me get this straight. These 13 year old boys used the word “lynched” when fucking around in the backyard. Because that’s a word that lots of 13 year old boys regularly use. Lynched.

Oh, and this 8 year old boy regularly hangs out and is friends with 13 year old boys who routinely call him racial slurs and throw rocks at him. And Mom was just…..cool with this? They didn’t think it was a problem until he was allegedly lynched by these racist boys? Cool parenting. It’s almost as if this kid was never actually called racial slurs by these older boys, and they’re just making it up now to milk it for all its worth.

And even though Mom and Grandma weren’t there, they know for a fact that he swung from the noose three times. They’ve said three times on several occasions to the media. Yet in the same breath they also claim that the other boys left him there to hang:

“If it was an accident, that boy or anybody there wouldn’t have left him,” Slattery said. “I believe it was intentional.”

So then….how did he get out of the noose? It’s almost like the kids were fucking around, they realized the 8 year old was in danger of being seriously injured or dying, and then took him down.

Not only that, but these group of racist teenagers also yelled “white pride” at him too:

But the “play” soon took a bad turn when, Merlin says, the kids started hitting Quincy in the legs with sticks and throwing rocks at him. They also started making comments about the fact that he is black and saying things like “white pride” to him and Ayanna.

Which is also weird, because she wasn’t there, so she wouldn’t have a clue what was actually said. Either way, the fact that her son was beaten and called racial slurs, yet voluntarily went to their house later in the day to play, didn’t seem odd to anyone who interviewed her. Because it fit the narrative and that’s the only thing that really matters.

And wouldn’t ya know it, they’re getting pity from white guilt SJWs in pink pussy hats:

And making bank off it:

The GoFundMe, which has raised well over $50,000 and counting, guilts people into donating by referring to it as a “racially motivated hate crime”:

Once again, this kid was the victim of a “racially motivated hate crime”:

Coincidentally this GoFundMe was started on September 12, two weeks after the incident, and a day after she started posting about how her infant son (who is biracial and has an actual black father) was in the hospital and in need:

So she needed money. And as soon as the GoFundMe went up, this went up:

Now all of a sudden it’s a 100% racial thing.

A few days later she did a Facebook Live session to milk her newfound fame some more. All of a sudden she was an expert on racism, and this deep thinker wanted to lecture us all on just how real racism is:

The best part is at 18:00 – “Racism is still so alive, OK. OK. So open up your eyes a little bit and understand the fact that….it’s not over. OK. Racism has not ended. Diversity is so, so, so, real.”

Yup, you read that correctly. She thinks diversity and racism are synonyms. “Diversity is so, so, so real.” As if that’s a bad thing we should be on the lookout for. Yes honey, diversity is real. It just doesn’t really exist much in Claremont because everyone there is white.

Funny thing about Mom is, the kids weren’t even living with her:

According to her it was her decision to not have her son live with her too:

The latest baby is from this chudstuffer:

As you can see, she jumps from one flat brimmed Chicago bulls hat ramrod to the next. If you’ve ever dated a guy who owns one of these hats, you’re probably ratchet. If you’ve been knocked up by more than one of them, I just naturally assume that you’re up to no good at all times.

She actually married this one, but shockingly it lasted less than a year. Probably because Christopher Elcock, AKA “Gho$t,” was too busy pursuing his burgeoning rap career:

Together they saved France from radical Islamic terrorism.

But when people went to her Facebook page, they saw pictures of him, and they saw pictures of their actual biracial baby, and they donated to her GoFundMe because it made them feel like they were combatting racism. In reality they were just giving money to this skagbag’s Newport Light foundation:

When that relationship went to shit, she moved onto this creampump:

I don’t know what’s worse. Dating grown men who wear “the hat,” dating grown men who rock the “I have court on Tuesday” chinstrap, or being a grown woman who routinely writes “facts” on Facebook. Actually I do know what’s worse – bringing a guy who was previously featured in the Eagle Times as the “fugitive of the week,” around your four children from different fathers:

So yea, he got warrants. And he’s the new Dad. I’m sure he’ll stick around for a while too. Because Mom is just stable like that. That’s why she whined like a 16 year old when the last baby Daddy skipped town:

She didn’t want to live with the kids, but she likes her wine though:

She suffers from anxiety and doesn’t really sleep:

She also suffers from depression and normally stays in bed all day

She also posts a million times a day and often throws herself pity parties in hopes you’ll tell her how strong she is:

She does what 99.9% of ratchets do with their free time – share Kevin Gates memes that “inspire” them:

She sits on the stoop and rips butts:

She lectures other women about the poor choices they make with men:

Because she’s the Doctor fucking Ruth of New Hampshire.

She was also allegedly the victim of a hit and run last year on the day after Christmas:

But yet no one was arrested for it, even though she had the make and model of the car in a small town.

She’s a good Mom though, because she’s decided that at the age of 28 and after bearing four children, it’s time to “step back” from the drinking and bar scene so she can get her head straight:

Because that’s a luxury most Moms have. They can pawn their kids off on someone else, be a bar fly, throw pity parties, and then randomly decide they’re gonna get their shit together.

It’s OK though, because she’s a good Mom. Even ask her:

“Boy, bye.” If you’ve ever used that phrase and you’re not mocking people who use that phrase, you’re probably gonna end up allowing a guy with a flat brimmed Chicago Bulls hat to toss his yogurt slinger in your baby cannon. Just sayin.

So once again here are the facts:

  • A white kid with a white Dad and white Mom was the victim of an anti-black, racially motivated hate crime.
  • Quincy looks to be about 1/16 Brazilian, which makes him about as diverse as Elizabeth Warren.
  • According to the mother whose house the incident took place at, the kids were fucking around in the backyard, daring each other to do stupid shit, and they all put nooses around their necks.
  • The story initially said that a group of 14 year olds did this to him, but it was really just one 13 year old boy, who SJWs want to know the name of so they can ruin his life too.
  • Mom initially said the incident was an accident, but that narrative changed as time went on and she realized a hate crime could be more lucrative.
  • The initial post she made was careful not to show his face, because you would see that the kid is clearly not someone who would be mistake for black.
  • The only witnesses to the “racial” incident were children, none of whom have made a public statement.
  • The only people alleging it is racially motivated are Mom and Grandma, neither of whom were there.
  • The kid was allegedly called racial slurs and had rocks thrown at him by these older kids many times before the incident. Yet Mom had no problem with him hanging out with them.
  • When they first posted about the incident race was never mentioned.
  • After the police announced that no one was being arrested and the name of the older child would not be revealed, Mom decided it was racially motivated.
  • Mom then started announcing that her actual biracial infant son was in need, so that when people went to her Facebook page they saw a dark skinned child who could use some pity cash.
  • Right after she decided it was racially motivated it became a national story, and she agreed to start a GoFundMe, which called the incident “racially motivated,” in her name.
  • The GoFundMe has raised over $50,000 for a woman who more than likely has no money, works very little, and is eligible for government assistance.
  • Mom, who cares so much about Quincy, voluntarily gave him up to live on her own last year.
  • Mom routinely brings men into her house who are not even remotely mature enough to be fathers, break the law, wear “stop snitching” with flat brimmed Chicago Bulls hats, and pursue rap careers.

But according to the MSM, who is not interested in getting to the bottom of this story, it’s a racially motivated hate crime:

At the end of the day Mom is just gonna spend all the GoFundMe cash on Newport 100’s and nose rings while she’s thinking about the next time she can use one of her “biracial” children to get idiots to donate money to her.

    I find it quite unsettling and rather disgusting that most of the commentators seem to be so adamant in their moral objection to the mother’s alleged exploitation and misappropriation of “Blackness” yet seemingly have no objection to the blatant exploitation and violation of privacy of an 8 year old child! These people hide behind the guise of ethics and morality in hopes of masking their underlying racist agenda as well as their complete lack of sensitivity and common decency. Furthermore, by posting his photo and identity, not only are they contributing to the child’s psychological torment and destruction, but they are also jeopardizing his safety by making him an easy target for predators. These people are bullies and psychological terrorists and they should be ashamed of their dangerously abusive treatment of a child.
    Oh and on a side note, the child IS biracial according to all legal and practical definitions of bi-racial identity in the U.S. and, for those of you who really want to get technical, in the eyes of the federal law he is recognized as BLACK and/or AFRICAN-AMERICAN. Remember the One Drop Rule? According to the U.S. Supreme Court, “any man, woman or child, regardless of physical appearance, familiar affiliation, social standing, or perceived racial identity be it self or publicly ascribed, who has any trace of Negro blood or combination thereof, whether it be one half, one quarter, one eighth or even one drop, shall for all practical and legal intents and purposes be classified as and relegated to the status of a Negro, and shall comply accordingly in every manner of social custom and status of servitude as legislatively defined, mandated and enforced by the respective state of his birth.”

    Has there been any interview with the other kids that did this to Quincy? If his sister was there, why did she allow this to happen? Where were the mom and grandma? If they were so concerned about Quincy, why did they allow him to hang out with those dipshits?

    This wasn’t the first time this child hung out with these older kids. Matter of fact I have seen him on atleast 10 occassions walking down streets far from his home….alone.
    I think that this is a horrible thing that has happened and I really hope that the money is used to help these children deal mentally and emotionally with their trauma. But what i really think is that its an unfortunate cushion to make mommy feel better for her lack of presense as a parent.
    Racism clearly still does exist that we are sure of…..however to insist that this is the true base of this event rather than the lack of parental involvment in where and who your very young children are hanging out with is the real issue
    Its sad an unfortunate and I really hope for these children to be able to heal

    Interesting that the fact that the “dad” is a child molester who has spent time in jail didn’t make the story.

    Dad had a SEVENTEEN year old girlfriend who apparently cheated on him, so he gave her the back of his hand, repeatedly.

    I’m sure the crybabies reading this will say, “So? Seventeen is not a child.”

    I’ve been following this Bullshit story since it came out. Thank you for finally saying everything I’ve been thinking.

    What a stupid fucking article. Way to turn around something horrible and act like it’s not a big deal. Yeah this probably wasn’t about race, but it’s still awful. The kid was hung from a rope there’s no way something like that happens by accident. He’s 8 years old a little kid and you’re going to say it was his fault that someone did that to him. Also I’m not sure when his family ever said he was black? They said biracial, which does not mean black.

    • Justme
      September 28, 2017 at 7:08 am

      It’s not the 8 year olds fault that his mother allowed him to play with kids 5 years older then him. Its his mothers fault, at least 99.9% cause if she did her job instead of passing it off, maybe it would have been prevented. Also I highly doubt that little boy will get one penny of that go fund me money. That’s all gonna be for mommy.. smh
