Rodney Blomberg, a resident of Lane County is currently facing trial for allegedly threatening a Black neighbor and using racial slurs.
Forty-five-year-old Rodney Blomberg is facing charges for second-degree intimidation for allegedly threatening a Black neighbor at his home and using racial slurs. Lane County Sheriff’s officials said Blomberg drove up into the victim’s home at around 10p.m in the company of three other men on the on Jackson Marlow Road near Creswell.
According to the court documents, the three other men were driving two cars with the Confederate flag affixed to it. Blomberg is accused of confronting the victim and telling him that he isn’t welcome in the neighborhood. He subsequently used racial slurs and terrorized the man by saying Black people “get hung in these parts”.
In the affidavit, the victim avowed that he no longer feels safe in the neighborhood after the incident.
The sheriff officials arrested Blomberg a few days after the unpleasant situation. He is scheduled to appear in court on August 15.
Instances, whereby white people threaten Black, happen far too often. The current system has made them believe that they are somewhat superior to the Black. In this current age, the entire human race has come so far and hence, behaviors that do not depict the advancement we have made till now should utterly be discouraged.
