NYDN – He used his lover’s testicles as a talisman. Renato Seabra, a Portuguese male model, said he was so tortured by his May-December romance with Carlos Castro that he beat him to death, castrated him with a corkscrew, then wore the dead man’s manhood on his arms to harness what he believed was its healing powers, his defense lawyer said at Friday’s opening of the murder trial. “He put one on each wrist,” said lawyer Rubin Sinins said. “He did this for his protection. He could also harness the power. He wandered the streets of Manhattan, touching people, because he had the power to cure people from AIDS, because he had the power to cure them.” Seabra, 21, killed his 65-year-old lover — a noted Portuguese society journalist and gay activist — in a sudden psychotic onset, said the lawyer. “He willingly told police. He wanted to explain why he killed Mr. Castro, because he thought what he had done was right.”
Imagine if you were just walking the streets of Manhattan and this dude with balls hanging from his wrists started touching you talking about how he could cure you from AIDS? I don’t even like when I see people with a clipboard and they try to stop me and ask me to sign up for shit. I don’t even like homeless people talking to me. Not even a “God bless you.” I don’t even know what I’d do if a dude with a pair of 65 year old balls in his hands started touching me.
I Imagine trying to pull that shit on a black person in the streets? I bet you he only went up to white people and did that. I don’t care how psychotic you may be – everyone knows not to approach black people in that manner. Whether you’re playing a prank or trying to scare someone or trying to share the magic of your old boyfriend’s severed nutsack, black folks would not play that game.
