Where’s The Outrage?

President Obama said “You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot,

I said that this could have been my son.”Image

Well, Chris Lane could have been my son. Image

But the administration is silent. I will tell you why – Obama’s history.

When two police officers arrested Obama’s Harvard professor friend, who is black, Obama immediately denounced the action and suggested there was a racial motive. Before he knew the facts of the case, he brought up race. Obama called for a “dialogue on race” which proved to be a meaningless gesture. When Trayvon Martin, who is black, attacked George Zimmerman, Obama said nothing about the attack, but came out against the death of Martin, and once again, suggested that race was involved.

Obama, along with Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP were so quick to condemn George Zimmerman calling his self-defense a “hate crime.” Yet, an Australian college student (read white) who was in our country on a baseball scholarship will never get to see his graduation day. He was gunned down, shot in the back by black teens who were bored.
A couple of Tweets from one of them proves he is racist. On April 29, he tweeted, “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.” On July 15, days after the George Zimmerman verdict, Edwards tweeted “Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!:) lol shit ima keep sleepin shit! #ayeeee.” “Woods” is a derogatory term for white people. Yet, this was not considered a hate crime???

The left’s selective outrage on racial violence is sickening.  Jesse Jackson tweeted about the Chris Lane murdered and wrote that this kind of  violence should be “frowned upon.” That means there’s no money in it for Jesse. Meanwhile, Al Sharpton said that he only protests when there’s an injustice and that this wasn’t racial. Which means there’s no publicity or money in it for him, either.

You know what I frown upon? That these two are Baptist ministers.

Sadly, this is the level of selective “outrage” we can expect from those who usually are the most vocal.

An easy solution would be to make ALL murder a hate crime. After all, isn’t killing another human being hateful?
