Racialists in America

Last Friday, two male Negro teenagers and a third teenage male who appears to be a mulatto, murdered an Australian jogger on the streets of Duncan, Oklahoma. The three teens said that they did it “because we were bored”.

Now, it has been five days since the incident, and only now is this becoming national news. Curiously, the usual cast of characters in interracial violence news coverage is absent. Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is Al Sharpton? Oh, wait! The victim is an innocent white person minding his own business! No problem!

There is a growing sense of outrage over the hypocrisy. Jackson and Sharpton were very quick to call for action in the case of the thug wannabe Trayvon Martin, who attacked George Zimmerman, an Hispanic man, and was killed in self defense for his trouble. Yet, in the case of Christopher Lane, they are strangely silent.

Alan Colmes explains it this way on Fox News this morning: “Blacks are underrepresented by the system, so they need people like Al Sharpton to bring attention to their issues.” Well, I have news for Mr. Colmes. If murder is an alternative for boredom among Negro teenagers, the Negro population in the US needs Mr. Sharpton to bring attention to that issue.

I have often thought to myself that the most racialist people in America in the 21st century are Negroes. My experience has been that in almost every interracial altercation where Negroes are involved, the Negroes automatically assume that race is a factor. And the mainstream media falls right in line. Unfortunately, they just don't get it, as pointed out in this post over on Vox Popoli.

Fortunately, some leaders in our country are asking the right questions. Former Rep. Allen B. West, Florida Republican, hinted that there may be a racial double standard at play, given the lack of outrage from Mr. Obama and civil rights leaders. He tweeted:

Three black teens shoot white jogger. Who will POTUS identify w/ this time?

It is an interesting question. Our illustrious president, who campaigned on the platform that he will bring people together, has actually accomplished the opposite on several fronts, including the racial front.

Donald Trump (of whom I am not a big fan, but he has his moments) tweeted:

Why isnt mainstream media all over this like Trayvon Martin story?Will there be justice for Chris Lane?

Indeed. Where is the mainstream media? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is Al Sharpton. Can Christopher Lane get justice in post-modern, politically correct America?


The US media is playing this incident down, I suspect because it does not fit their agenda.  For instance, Yahoo! News does not mention it at all, and Yahoo! is a major news outlet for the 15 - 25 year old demographic.

Here is what you are not hearing from the US major media:
  • The alleged trigger man was a member of the Crips gang.
  • The other two alleged accomplices were Crips wannabes.
  • Facebook pages of some of the alleged perps glorified in rap lyrics which included selections about murder and mayhem.
There is a feral subculture in America.  Many academics posit that gang behavior and rap music are the result of the more affluent turning their collective backs on the ghettos in American cities.  I am calling horse-puckey on that.  There are so many examples of subcultures in America that had the same thing happen, but instead of going feral, those groups took a higher road.
So, at this point, I am thinking that boredom was the icing on a very rotten cake.
