An Associated Press article informs us that a Chinese mudshark, bypassing millions of eligible Chinese men of her own age, instead chose an American black man who was twice her age. From the article:
BEIJING (AP) — An American man has been sentenced to death in China for fatally stabbing a 21-year-old woman who tried to break off their relationship.
Shadeed Abdulmateen was sentenced Thursday after a trial in the Intermediate People’s Court of Ningbo, a city in China’s eastern coastal province of Zhejiang, the Xinhua News Agency reported.
Abdulmateen met the victim, identified only by her surname, Chen, in 2019 and entered into a romantic relationship with her. When she attempted to break off relations, Abdulmateen arranged to meet her at a bus stop in Ningbo, then stabbed her to death on the night of June 14, 2021 with a folding knife he had brought with the intention of killing her, Xinhua said.
The trial was attended by more than 20 people, including government officials and members of the public. Xinhua said the court ruled that the facts surrounding Chen’s murder were “especially heinous and resulted in serious consequences.”
It said Abdulmateen had been provided with a defense, translation services and consular visits, but gave no details on his hometown or how he came to reside in China.
The suspect’s name, and the fact that the article includes no photo of him, leave little doubt as to his race. Other sites do provide a photo. This one is from Newsweek:
Hopefully, the Chinese press is less restricted when it comes to reporting black crimes against women.
We can probably count on the Biden administration intervening in order to save Abdulmateen’s life. Ideally, the Chinese will execute him before this happens.
