We interrupt your regularly scheduled ‘Donald Sterling is a racist’ coverage to bring you a more substantive story replete with actual deadly racism that’s drawing no media attention.
In Middletown Ohio a white single mother became the victim of horrific threats and attacks while living in a predominantly black community. The attacks ultimately culminated in teens setting fire to the house late at night trying to murder the family.
Unknown to the thug arsonists, who started the fire at 1:00am, the woman and her children had escaped through a rear window earlier in the evening at the request of her sister who begged her to just leave.

OHIO CBS – […] A few hours before her house burned down, homeowner Jennifer Saylor told police she was having ongoing problems with juveniles (17 and 18-year-olds) in the neighborhood.
Earlier this year, she filed a police report about a break-in at her home. A teen was arrested and ever since, the youth’s friends have been threatening to hurt her and her child, the report states.
“They made threats to jump her if she is seen outside,” police wrote.
Then, two in the group of six teens lit a red flare and “threw it at her residence, stating they they were going to burn her house down,” the report reads.
“She advised that they were kicking and banging on her door, and they shattered the window to the screen door.”
The teens took off when she threatened to call police.
“She fears for her life and stated that these juveniles continue to come back and threaten her, and she feels that they are eventually going to make entry into her residence and harm her,” police wrote in the report.
The frightened woman and her child stayed somewhere else the night their house was destroyed. That decision may have saved their lives.
