…or so the media says. But objective history refutes that assertion. What you are about to see is a direct comparison of two stories, one about black teens killing a white man and one about “white” men killing blacks from the same news source – ABC News.
I was reading a NYT article about the shooting of Chris Lane and a liberal in the comments mentioned a story about two “white” guys (one was native American – a “white” Indian, I guess) killing several blacks in Tulsa back in April of 2012. The commenter said that the media didn’t cover it from a racial angle, I remembered the story…the motive was determined to be revenge for the killing of the Native American man’s father the year before – but I wanted to go back and see if he was right.
So, I did – and looking at these two stories, there are things that just jump off the page.
I want you to compare this ABC report from August 20 on the Lane shooting to the reporting on the Tulsa shootings last year:
Prosecutors filed charges today against three Oklahoma teens accused of killing an Australian baseball player because they were “bored” and “wanted to see someone die.”
Two teenagers, ages 15 and 16 years old, were charged with first-degree murder and were ordered to be held without bond.
A third suspect, age 17, was charged with use of a vehicle in the discharge of weapon and being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.
The teens have not yet entered a plea, according to a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office.
The suspects followed Chris Lane, 22, as he jogged alongside a road in Duncan, Okla., Friday afternoon, shot him in the back and left him to die on the side of the road, Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford told ABCNews.com
“They were bored and just wanted to see somebody die,” Ford said.
Lane, who is from Melbourne, Australia, majored in business and finance at East Central University in Ada, Okla., where he also played catcher on the school’s baseball team.
As classes begin this week at East Central University, Lane’s coach, Dino Rosato, remembered a player who “had an above average baseball IQ” and also excelled in the classroom.
“He was a tireless worker on the and off the field. He was an absolute joy to coach,” Rosato said. You would never know if he was having a bad day because he always had the Chris Lane smile on.”
Nowhere in this story will you see an identification of the race of the perpetrators or their activities on FaceBook or other social media.
Now look at the story from Tulsa from April of 2012:
Police say their investigation of the deadly shooting spree in Tulsa, Okla., will include the racially charged Facebook postings of a man arrested this morning in connection to the attacks, although they say it’s premature to describe the incident as a hate crime.
Two white men were arrested in connection with the random attacks that left three black pedestrians dead and two in critical condition, police said.
Those are the first two paragraphs.
Racial identification, assumption that it is a racially motivated hate crime and activity on social media that is described as “racially charged Facebook postings” are noted within the first 67 words.
Note also that somehow the presence of a “mixed race” or “white” teen invalidates the racial motive in the Lane case but the presence of a Native American does not in the Tulsa case.
Law enforcement seems very unwilling to cite race as an issue in either case. I actually think that is for a reason – they are not trying to hide it as a motivation, they are trying to prevent riots. They are not oblivious to the racially charged atmosphere that the media and purported “civil rights” leaders have created.
A shameless Martin Luther King III gives us an example from his speech yesterday:
“However, sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin’s mother and father remind us that, far too frequently, the color of one’s skin remains a license to profile, to arrest and to even murder with no regard for the content of one’s character,” he said, calling for “stand your ground” self-defense laws to be repealed in states where they have been enacted.
This man is an embarrassment to the legacy of his father – but that is not the point – the point is that there are people willing to both lie and to hide facts to advance a preferred agenda and this is very dangerous to the stability of society.
Establishment blacks and liberals want to have a conversation about race?
A good first step would be for you to stop lying about it.
