WW2 Vet Beaten to Death, Jogger Shot: Where Is the Outrage?

To my loyal readers (if there are any left) I sincerely apologize for my absence.  I started a new job
just this past week, so it has been somewhat of a draining transition.  So let's kick things off with some good old-fashioned controversy.

A few days ago, a white, 88-year-old World War II veteran was beaten to death by a black teen.  Delbert Belton, affectionately known by his friends as "Shorty" because of his stature (just over 5 feet), walked out of a local pool hall he frequented and was assaulted by the teen in what police suspect was a robbery.  A few days later, Belton died from his wounds.

A black teen beats an old white man to death . . . where is the outrage?  Where are the race protests?  I don't see anyone calling the assailant a racist who clearly profiled Belton and murdered him because he's white.  Any time a black person perpetrates senseless violence upon a white person, all we hear from the newsmedia is the bare-bone facts.

Why haven't Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson taken to the bully-pulpit screaming for racial justice?  Here's the short answer: they don't care, because it makes no difference to them when a black man kills a white man.

Here's a better story for everyone.  Last week, a white, Australian baseball player was shot from a moving vehicle.  The assailants were all black.  When initially questioned by the police, one of them said that they shot him because they "were bored and wanted something to do."

But the fun doesn't end there.  The police discovered racist tweets from one of the assailants, James Edwards Jr..  Here is what he has to say about white people:

"90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM"
 
And . . .

"Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!:) lol shit ima keep sleepin shit! #ayeeee.”
 
For the uninitiated, the term "woods" is a euphamism for white people.  So here we actually have evidence that suggests that this murder may have been racially motivated, but we're still not seeing any protests.  Also, these teens will not be charged with a hate crime, because apparently there is not enough evidence to support the charge.  What?!  Since when did evidence matter when investigating someone for a hate crime? 

George Zimmerman is being investigated for civil rights violations based solely on the fact that a non-black killed a black, yet in this case we have a murderer who has publicly admitted to hating white people, and we are supposed to believe that this is not a hate crime?

Jesse Jackson tweeted about this, saying that he'll pray for the family of the victim, but he's certainly not calling Edwards a racist.

Why?

 We all know the answers to that.  The newsmedia outlets know that black-on-white violence does not stir the ratings, and they know this because they understand a fundamentally dangerous flaw in mainstream American thought: that black people cannot be racist.

We are told to have pitty for a pot-smoking, trouble-making teen who fucked with the wrong neighborhood watchmen, committed assault, and was subsequently shot in self-defense, yet no one seems to give two shits that an elderly white man was beaten to death.  There is no public outcry when a white man is randomly shot by a black man who openly admits he hates white people.

Racism is a belief that some people are inherently better than others simply because of the color of their skin.  Racism is not based on statistics (I'm sorry, but it's not racist to make the objective observation that most people in prison for committing violent crime are black), racism is based on pure ignorant hatred. 

The world is over 150 years removed from black slavery, so there is no one alive who was a party to that or a victim of it.  So why do black people get a pass for hating white people?  The President of the United States is mixed black and white, yet we're supposed to believe that black people are still somehow being oppressed by whites, and thus their hatred of me, a white man, is totally justified?

Until we see a "Justice for Chris" rally led by Sharpton and Jackson, then every last asshole that called George Zimmerman a racist is a hypocritical douche who lacks the intellectual capacity to understand concepts that require the most basic level of higher-order thinking.

Well-stated.

The loonies are running the asylum now, so we need to get used to it.

It will only get worse, because no one can see anything on the horizon that will change the dynamic.

The saddest and most unfortunate part of our race problem is that both the perpetrators and the victims are black.

A 'white Hispanic' shooting a black man is a statistical anomaly.

So the plight of black people trapped in shitty neighborhoods and being preyed upon by other black people will only worsen.

Meanwhile, black and white people with brains and the means to do it, will run like hell from these liberal-created shit-holes, seeking safety in their own enclaves.

Australians are talking about boycotting American, and I don't blame them. We are a sick and violent society, and we don't have the stomach or political will to face our problems, so we paper over them, pretend they don't exist, or cast misplaced blame to help the violent perps feel better about themselves.

I already have my own boycott in place. It would be stupid for this white boy to visit Baltimore, and I know better than to be in certain places in Denver after dark. White people don't belong, so I stay away.

It only counts if a niggah gets hurt by a white man. Niggahs were given a license to kill by the civil rights movements. Obama is nothing more than the Niggah's Revenge. He got put in the white house by libberals to make sure white Americans got their comeuppance.

The liberals believe white people must be punished for being white just as white people used to punish niggahs for being black.

When white people have been brought down as low as niggahs were when they first came here in chains, then the libberals will relax, because they'll know they finished the job they set out to do.

Jack,
This was a good, provocative post, and look what you got. Comments from me and a racial provocateur.

This is why you gotta bring it every day, man.
