In this story, posted on ABC news, we read about a pregnant white woman who was stabbed by a black intruder:

Rachel Poole, 31, gave birth to her daughter, Isabella, at University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, following a successful cesarean section, her stepfather, Gary Jones, told ABCNews.com.

Poole’s mother, Rebecca Jones, declined to comment to ABCNews.com on her daughter’s condition, but said the baby girl “is in good health.”

Poole was taken to the hospital on Wednesday evening after she was “brutally attacked” by a 19-year-old who broke into her home and stabbed her repeatedly with a knife, according to an El Paso Police Department news release.

Corey Bernard Moss, of Fort Bliss, Texas, was charged with criminal attempted capital murder after he attacked Poole, who was nine months pregnant, in her kitchen while she was on FaceTime with her husband, El Paso Police Department spokesman Det. Mike Baranyay told ABCNews.com.

Moss, who had gone to confront Poole about money he owed her, reportedly entered the woman’s home through a rear door and waited for her to return, according to an arrest affidavit.

When the woman arrived home, she was using FaceTime to speak with her husband, Justin Poole, who is deployed overseas, the affidavit said. Poole was video-chatting with her husband when Moss allegedly attacked her from behind and repeatedly stabbed her with a stainless steel folding knife.

Here’s the accompanying photo of perpetrator and victim:

1) Before you rant about races, know that Poole’s husband, Justin, is black.
2) They are a biracial family. Justin has repeatedly asked for people to leave race out of the equation. Instead of bringing up race let’s see how we as humans and citizens can ease their pain. Which is respect their wishes and keep race out of the topic of conversation.
While, in this case, it’s true that the mudshark’s actual husband didn’t stab her, this doesn’t make race irrelevant at all. I’ll quote myself, from my very first post on this blog:
Even today, when you marry somebody, you are not marrying just the man.  You are also, in a sense, marrying his family, his friends and his life history.  So you found a black man who bucked the trends.  That’s wonderful.  Did his brothers, cousins and uncles, who come to visit sometimes, also buck the trends?  Did his friends also buck the trends?  Will your mixed children buck the trends?  Will his (as of yet unknown) criminal history, child support obligations, or health problems become your burden as well?
The moment this woman chose to marry a black man, even a decent and law-abiding black man, she also chose to attach herself to other blacks. In this case, her choice proved almost fatal. Had she died, she could have been a contender for the Darwin Awards.
