A Sign of the Times: Beautiful White Co-ed Murdered by Criminal Negro Ex

Lauren McCluskey, University of Utah student-athlete murdered by criminal Negro ex

by Dissident Millennial

THERE’S BEEN some politically-correct handwringing in the media lately over the murder of a beautiful White co-ed by a 37-year-old Black criminal with whom she’d had a brief affair.

Slain University of Utah athlete had told school of ex-boyfriend’s harassment

by Matt Bonesteel and Cindy Boren | Washington Post

Lauren McCluskey, the University of Utah track and field athlete who was found shot to death Monday night in a car outside a campus residence hall, had broken off her relationship with the prime suspect when she discovered that he was a registered sex offender.

Melvin Rowland, 37, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a church near downtown Salt Lake City and McCluskey’s mother told university police that he had been harassing her 21-year-old daughter since their Oct. 9 breakup. . .

In a statement released Tuesday morning, McCluskey’s mother, Jill, described her daughter’s final moments.

“[Monday] night a little before 9 p.m., she was returning to her university apartment from her night class and talking to me on the phone,” she said. “Suddenly, I heard her yell, “No, no, no!” I thought she might have been in a car accident. That was the last I heard from her. My husband called 911. I kept the line open, and in a few minutes, a young woman picked up the phone and said all of Lauren’s things were on the ground.” . . .

“He lied to her about his name, his age, and his criminal history,” she said in the statement obtained by Shara Park of KSL-TV. “Lauren was informed by a friend about his criminal history, and she ended the relationship with her killer on October 9, 2018. He had borrowed her car, and she requested for the University of Utah police [to] accompany her on October 10, 2018 to get the car back. She blocked his and his friends’ phone numbers and complained to University of Utah police that she was being harassed.” . . .

Amidst all of the coverage of this incident, however, no mainstream media reporter saw fit to point out the glaring racial angle of this murder, but alas, a picture says a thousand words.

There’s more.

Killer allegedly threatened to post compromising photos of Utah student

CBS/AP  — October 26, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY — A sex offender parolee who killed a University of Utah student whom he briefly dated allegedly threatened to post compromising pictures of the couple online. Melvin Rowland, 37, demanded that Lauren McCluskey send him money to stop him from doing so, authorities said Thursday. . .

The killing of McCluskey, a track athlete at the school, came weeks after she broke off her month-long relationship with Rowland and filed a complaint with campus police alleging he had demanded money in exchange for not posting compromising pictures of the couple online. She had sent $1,000 to an account in hopes of preserving her reputation. . .

Police were investigating the case as sexual extortion and knew Rowland was a sex offender but not that he was on parole. . .

McCluskey met Rowland at a bar where he was working security and started dating him. He visited her often in her dorm and made friends with other students in the building.

“He was very, very good at getting people to trust him,” Brophy said. “Lauren was no different.”

The first question that comes to mind upon seeing this story is, “How in the world is this even possible? What kind of society are we living in for this to even be conceivable?”

While the controlled media would like to blame Lauren’s death on the negligence of the University of Utah police, the truth is that her slaying is really an indictment of the entire culture of liberal insanity that has spread like a plague throughout the West over the past several decades.

In any dignified White nation, an affair between a 21-year-old co-ed and a 37-year-old Negro would be totally out of the question, and it would not need to be explained to anyone why that is.

In the autistic world of indiscriminate liberalism, however, apparently no one (other than one concerned friend of Lauren’s) saw anything unusual or alarming about Lauren’s relationship with her future killer. In fact, had Lauren not been murdered, most liberals and conservative cucks would probably celebrate her dating of a Black man as a victory for “tolerance” and “civil rights”.

Now imagine if Lauren had grown up in a different country, one with a proud White culture like America used to have. How would her life have turned out differently? Well, for starters, if Lauren had been raised in a traditional nation with a sound educational system, she would’ve been imbued with a healthy sense of racial identity that would’ve precluded her from ever entertaining a Negro sociopath like Melvin Rowland in the first place. Moreover, in a sane country, Lauren would’ve lived to become a wife and mother rather than get murdered in tabloid fashion before even starting a family.

So what lessons are to be drawn from this multicultural disaster?

Well, first off, the biggest takeaway from this story is that the whole concept of “women’s rights” and “women’s liberation” has proven once again to be terribly destructive. In this particular case, Lauren was the-cream-of-the-crop in the dating market. A gorgeous star-athlete and honors-student with the world at her feet, Lauren could’ve had virtually any guy she wanted. However, instead of choosing from any number of men of her own race who would’ve been thrilled to be with her, Lauren decided to give herself to a 37-year-old Black criminal she met at a bar. This does not speak well of women’s innate judgment or of their capacity to choose suitable partners.

Thus the hard lesson to be drawn from this fiasco is that granting women complete sexual freedom simply allows them to destroy themselves. Women are not equal to men. Women need strong patriarchal guidance and protection from would-be predators and their own worst instincts. As such, “women’s liberation” is a bad idea, and the fetish that the controlled media have made both of non-Whites and of promiscuity in general is responsible for ruining Lauren’s life along with the lives of countless untold girls just like her.

R.I.P. Lauren McCluskey and the descendants she’ll never have.

    A nNominally White woman in a bar, period. Probably without a father in her life much if at all. And the entire article is filled with euphemisms for “having sex with” rather than speaking openly about the specific problem. White men are simply neither protecting their women nor their civilization.

    Mormons are another cult (started by a salesman) that once at least viewed black and white as Cain and Abel but caved-in to political pressure in the 1960s. Today it is Churchgoers generally and Seventh-day Adventists (started by a non-white, brain-injured and consequently epileptic woman) is among if not the worst.

    The UNIVERITY OF UTAH is basically a creature of the MORMON CHURCH. Mormon “leadership” such as Bang ’em Young promoted self-servicing policies and now–politically correct– it appears a creature of the Jews. View their former attendees about whom they beat their chest and see what you think.

    The Seventh-day Adventist Church teaches that members should tithe (at least 10-percent of their income) and has approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Adventist Church operates 173 hospitals and sanitariums and more than 7,500 schools around the world using primarily non-white labor. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) works in more than 130 countries for “community development” such as public health that facilitates population growth, immigration, and title money.

    Sadly this is the norm. I see white women with little half breed creatures all over the place. Most of these white women are dogs but occasionally I do see a beautiful white woman dragging around these little half breed things. I can only look in wonder at what is going on in their pea brained minds. If we are to take a story from the christian bible we see very early that women are easily led astray. What a shame.

      She gets no tears from me. First, she should not have been dating outside her race. Second, she should not have been having sex. Women only use sex as a control over men, anyway, as the Genesis story that you alluded to shows. Adam was not deceived by the serpent, but he chose the feminine charms of his wife over fellowship with God. There is much ancient wisdom contained in the Bible.

      My father, Dr. Maurice Prebost said, “White Nationalists who disparage the Bible because the Ancient Wisdom is wrapped up in a highly poetic account of Hebrew history are making a big mistake.”

        I don’t understand you, Mr Prebost. In some comments on some days, you acknowledge the destructiveness (and lack of truth) in Christian doctrine and the Jewish “bible.”

        On other days, you seem to be telling us that there is “ancient wisdom” in the ravings and scribblings.

        (We should never use “Hebrew” to mean anything other than “Jew,” by the way. The “Christian Identity” idea that the two are sharply distinct is nonsense. It is mostly taken up by people who have seen how destructive Jews are, but who also have a psychological inability to acknowledge that the Bible that Daddy and Mommy told them is “God’s word” really isn’t. So they embrace the comforting fiction that today’s evil Jews are “imposters” and that the hate-filled scribblings were written by White folks just like us.)

        And I also don’t understand how “choosing the feminine charms” of one’s wife is a bad thing or could possibly be mutually exclusive of “fellowship with God.” Men have to avail themselves of their wive’s delightful charms or the race ceases to exist. Therefore, such “availment” is a good, even sacred, thing. And any book in which sexual intercourse is characterized as an evil is a book which the Creator of sex, I think, would rate as a very, very bad book — and most certainly not a holy one.

        I think we should look for wisdom in understanding Nature, and seeing therein the wishes and true words of the real Creator. The awe and the mystery we find in such a quest is the only true religion. The best of our people are ready for that. We don’t need the scribblings. And we certainly don’t need the scribblers.

          Hello, Dean. Thanks for replying.

          I will be the first to admit that I don’t have a fixed position on this subject, but I think most of my negative comments are really against organized religion.

          When a thing gets organized, it loses its original spirit, its pristine drive. The organization men come in and take over and make things more “efficient” and “cost effective” whereas in an unorganized, spirited movement, people do not count the cost—they dive in with abandon.

          The small-scale loosely organized churches are better for us than the larger, organized ones.

    Racial mixing is intolerable. I agree that we need strong, moral, and honorable White men, and the leadership of the best among them, and a new, race-based society and culture where such sins against Life are not permitted. And we need White women with an unshakable belief in their own value and in the sanctity and deep meaning of the sexual relationship, leading and teaching in their own circles.

    But it’s not all bad news these days. Even amidst the most massive propaganda campaign in human history — the Jewish effort encouraging racial mixing, especially among Whites — Whites are more resistant than any other race to mating outside their race, and White women are even more resistant than White men.

    Damaged goods. Cradle-to-grave Enemy indoctrination and mind control apparently has the effect of turning the victim’s mind against his innate will. Aryan ladies, a rhetorical question: would you even consider allowing the simian monster pictured to occupy the same side of the street as you, much less, having a “brief affair” with it? The very idea is revolting, no?

    Given that the victim was, for purposes of advancing the Aryan race, irredeemable, what appears as a tragedy is perhaps rather a Good Thing. And yes, WEIRDLY GRUESOME, I see the depraved white women of which you speak, pickaninnies in tow, even up here in northwestern Montana; although they are seldom beautiful.

    Our own existence as National Socialists speaks to the fact that the Enemy’s mind destruction efforts are not 100% effective, and therefore there must be a statistically small percentile of young, resistant, Aryan minds to whom we must dedicate our lives to rescuing from the degradation planned for them; the future of the race depends on it.

      Well-said, CC, although I’d have to add that the herd itself has most of its members scattered all over the place. Which offers free-range hunting opportunities to the non-Whites. Hopefully, as more and more anti-White hell comes our way in the form of mass-invasion, more interracial disasters, more blatant Semitic calls for our people to JUST DIE ALREADY… our herd will begin to understand a few important things and coalescing for protection.

    “This does not speak well of women’s innate judgment or of their capacity to choose suitable partners.”

    REALLY ?! Or as some in a common parlance might like to say, “Ya think ?!” How many times
    in my life have I seen, have we all seen, some Congoid driving a white woman’s car? And my travels and interactions with the world are
    not that wide ! Sickening. In a “saner time” she should’ve been, they
    both would’ve been, horsewhipped. Ah, those days are gone, so now
    thankfully White women can indulge their tar baby weaknesses,
    but not without consequences !! I have little sympathy for coal
    burners, and somewhat shamefully I admit that my sentiments
    are not that far from the treatment The Daily Stormer has given
    this story, and the topic in general, as distasteful as that can be.
    BUT NOT INACCURATE. Too many times in my life I have seen
    the “choices” that stupid, gullible, deluded, and slutty white gals
    can and do make, often leaving them with little half negroids to
    raise alone since even the worst of cucked White men want little
    or nothing to do w/ that picture. Even before I became “woke,”
    I had enough innate “racism” in my bones when I was younger
    to have left this broad if I had found out she was tainted like
    this. But had I been around her to hear what this disgusting
    vile thing was attempting to do, I’d like to think that I would
    have had enough testosterone to get a couple of buddies and
    f*** his sh** up as they say. That could have happened AND
    SHOULD have happened, instead of what did. Where are
    the MEN today – so many are psychologically gelded.

      More about the victim would be good here. See: . She doesn’t seem slutty or stupid at all, but was likely gullible and deluded; isn’t anyone who was raised under the controlled media and a state university indoctrination? Another aspect to this tragedy is the failures by LE and DA and possibly the victim’s fellow students to act proactively. Was fear of challenging the negroid Rowland a factor? There plainly are at least three times that this murder could’ve been prevented, some obvious from the timeline at :
      1) The negroid had forcible rape priors that were ignored by the parole board hearings, on the say of his lawyer when dismissing Rowland’s supposed threats against his parole officer, per .
      2) The U of Utah police did not inform the parole board of the victim’s stalking and extortion complaints, per .
      3) The parole board did not properly monitor Rowland or revoke parole based on violations such as use of social media that was prohibited due to being a registered sex offender, per . But it did find violations, per “[DOC spokesman] Felsted on Tuesday [who] described Rowland as “not fully compliant” with the terms of his parole, but said the violations were not so severe they would send him back to prison”
      4) The U of Utah police delayed formal investigation procedures until six days after the threatening texts were sent, per .
      5) Either the victim’s friends at the dorm did not inform the U of Utah police of Rowland’s stalking of the victim outside her dorm building for hours, or the police were informed but did not ban the non-student Rowland from the campus or possibly even contact the victim first to ask if she felt she was being stalked. I hope Rowland’s friends who sent the first threatening text are fully investigated. I’m sorry for her loss.

    Before I get started let me say this: I know that the murder was gruesome, and I’m not without compassion. But when I hear about cases like this, and see the outrage from those of us who’re racially-aware, I can’t help but reflect on Dr. Pierce’s book The Turner Diaries.

    Now I know that the book wasn’t a blueprint or instruction-manual for us to follow or anything like that. I’ve listened to Dr. Pierce’s several interviews with radio talk-show hosts that he did after the Oklahoma bombing, the one on the Art Bell show (Coast to Coast AM) immediately comes to mind, where Dr. Pierce explains that the book is fiction. I get it, and I believe it to be a fact that Dr. Pierce never intended The Turner Diaries to in any way to be looked upon as an instruction-manual.

    Having said all that, though, one would be wrong to think that the events in the book didn’t at least encapsulate many of the sentiments that Dr. Pierce held, especially when it comes to questions about race-traitors. Remember the chapter dealing with the oft-quoted Day of The Rope? Race-traitors were hanged and a sign was placed around their necks that said “I betrayed my race.” No mercy was shown.

    I myself have a race-traitor in my own family. A few years ago, my youngest niece gave birth to a mixed (Black/White) daughter. Needless to say, I was not pleased when my mother told me the news. That phone call, incidentally, was the last time I spoke to my mother, my niece, and her mother, my sister. I know what some of you might say. “Jimmy, family is too precious to just throw away over something like this.” To which I’d answer “I didn’t throw anyone away. My mother, sister and niece have decided not to ever speak to me, the racist, again.” And, you know what? I’m O.K. with it now. I’ve reconciled myself to it. Further, had they not made that choice, I would have — based upon the things that were said to me, the irreconcilable situation and my own anger at them all. My wife has gone on their FB pages, seen all the pictures of them with the “new addition to the family”, and she informed me that they appear to be happy as clams. The “baby daddy” is nowhere to be seen, though, which is no surprise. I told my wife to never again bother me with news of those people.

    I said all that to say that even though it hurts to see one of our own, a White, murdered, by a Negro or some other non-White, as a result of being in a mixed-race relationship with the non-White, we need to step back and realize that that White race-traitor got what he or she had coming. I know that, to a certain extent, the White is a victim of Jewish programming. I get it. But, again, that doesn’t mitigate the situation. The White is still responsible for being a race-traitor and for what happened to him or to her as a result. Same thing goes for a White porn-addict who winds up not having White children with a White woman because he’s a pervert. Though we all know that the Jews control virtually the entire porn industry… they didn’t hold a gun to the pervert’s head and force him to ingest their mind-rot. He bears the bulk of the responsibility for turning his life into an unproductive cesspool.

    Even though I do have some compassion, I believe that this woman, this “beautiful White coed”, should only elicit from we racially-aware Whites the same emotions that we would have if The Turner Diaries actually did come true, the Day of The Rope was upon us, and we were seeing the noose-bloated faces of race-traitors swinging from trees and lamp-posts: a mild sense of pity for the executed White, disgust, anger at the (((System))), even anger at the idiot dangling before our eyes, a sense of warning (as the public display is meant to convey)… and a sense of justice, of karma having ran its course.

    Maybe if there’s even more of an uptick in interracial murders (and please know that I don’t wish for that), more Whites will begin to “get it”, to become sufficiently alarmed, to understand a little better what the race-mixing program is all about, who it is that’s pushing it, and where it leads.

    If a day should come (and I expect it, believe me) that I get news that my youngest niece has been savagely murdered by either “the baby daddy” or some other non-White that she opens her legs for, I assure you all that I will feel the feelings I described above… even the sense of justice having been served. If that bothers some people, what can I say.

    Sorry so long a post.

      Hi JIMB !

      Very very moving testimony, very well written and the only correct attitude to have ! Congratulations from France !

      We have the same kind of problem here in europe and specially France, where numerous french girls “open their legs” as you said, to arabs from north africa, and by the way convert to islam !

      Here too, most of these girls/women are real abominations : ugly, fat, with an IQ close to an absolute zero, without education (poor language level, limitated vocabulary, etc, etc…), very often poor, jobless and of course living on the state subsidies, but sometimes unfortunately, one can see beautiful white creatures hanging around with these “things” !

      These “white waste female”, as I call them ( I know that the expression our enemies use is rather “white trash”, that’s why I don’t use it), have a lot of mixed children, raised in an islamic atmosphere, where they are told to hate France, and of course to hate “indigenous” people, and get ready to replace them, after slaughtering them (…..please note that absolutely NONE of our mainstream media talked about that !!!!).

      This attitude is logical, as according to the subsidies system in France, the more children you have, the more money you get !

      Very often, their “husband”, has other wives, he marries at the mosque !

      Polygamy is not authorized, but all social workers and political people knows about the situation, and let things go !

      ALL OF THEM are absolute leftists, what you call “SJW”, and criticizing the polygamy of these people would be “racist” !

      Anyway, the situation is terrible here, more and more “untermenschen” are imported, and quietly install the islamic mess in this country !
      However, french local carry on living without seeing everything, but it’s normal, they only watch at their smartphones screens !

      ‘ hope this humble testimony will be useful !

      Take great care, and “adishatz”, as we say in my South West ! (occitan word for “Hi” and also ” Bye” )

      My best regards to you.

    I wanted to add something to my post above.

    I reached out, once, after a year of estrangement from my mother, niece and sister. On my Father-in-law’s Facebook. I received a message back that read “No contact please”, and was Blocked. Yes, it hurt me deeply. But it’s been over 3 years now and I’ve mostly healed. Like I said above, I’ve reconciled myself to our permanent estrangement. I have a wonderful wife and a fantastic Father-in-law who I love dearly. I have a family.

    Another thing, I don’t just feel “anger” at the (((System))). I feel a smoldering, white-hot hatred for it and for those who compose it and support it. Not only for what that system has contributed to concerning my own broken relationships with members of my once very close family, but for what that despicable system continues to do to ALL of our families and our extended family, our race. Smoldering, white-hot hatred. And that’s putting it VERY mildly.

    Take care, people. Much love from Tennessee.

    “Lauren decided to give herself to a 37-year-old Black criminal she met at a bar. This does not speak well of women’s innate judgment or of their capacity to choose suitable partners.” In a proper white society, she would never have her judgment on partners so critically tested, much less be physically violated by a simian, because he would not be anywhere close to her proximity.

What does that say about her? Is it a call of nature that over rides ideology…?

      The Alliance’s goal is to build a society where such a woman can find a lifetime of gratification with one of her own race, or no one. Nature predetermined racial separation over thousands of years of evolutionary pressure, until quite recently. The losses of racial individuality and separation would mean loss of humanity’s greatest gift, its diversity. Another Alliance goal is to restore the society that rewards the ingenuity and strength of its people, encouraging family over individual interests, while crushing parasitism and degeneracy. This will revive the evolutionary process and build an ever greater race destined for interstellar exploration. Integration with negroids, whether national or genetic, stifles that process in the best of scenarios. Miss McCluskey encountered the worst. Who knows what potential was lost, despite her fatal weakness.

      The freely roaming predator had a prior history of misleading women to his advantage, in a society where white men are electronically castrated by the system and cannot intervene as friend much less as stranger lest he be accused of racism and beaten up. Yes, she made bad choices, but that shouldn’t have cost her her life. In artistry from the National Socialist era, it is clear that the German man was the guardian of the family. He was also the guardian of German maidenhood. . If a negroid somehow appeared then to paw at her, he’d be executed on the spot. That is the type of racial defense the Alliance supports, NOT in the Weimar we live in now, but within the realm of a future, proper white society .

    Why does the title of this article call that addled slattern beautiful? Are we masochists?

    Another thing that irritates me is the use of the term “ex” to mean ex-boyfriend. This is an inflation of a slang term that came into vogue in the late 1970s, in a period of proliferating divorce, at which time it always meant an ex-husband or ex-wife. An ex-husband or ex-wife is an important person, because there was a commitment, and usually one has spent years with that person, normally producing children that have forced the continuation of that relationship in some form. The idea that an erstwhile dalliance is now placed in the category formerly reserved for a spouse and parent of one’s children is troubling.

    Generally there is no choice about having an ex-husband or ex-wife after a marriage ends. You have to deal with that person to some extent. There is no choice. But a woman who has merely dated a man and calls him her “ex” is like a person who refuses to take out the trash.
