Murders

August 27, 2013

Dear editor, Where is the moral outrage, where is the media, where is Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barak Obama? Apparently Delbert Belton being beaten to death by two black men and Chris Lane bein......

This country needs some transformation. Race isn't a "card." It's a fundamental problem that's been kicked down the road since LBJ. Now that we have a person of color (God forbid) at the bully pulpit, the issue of race in this country can advance towards resolution. Scary as that may be to the white guys and gals. Sorry to make you uncomfortable.

President Obama may or may not be a racist, but I do know that he loves to play the race card. By playing the race card he keeps things stirred up and peoples attention off the many scandals he has created in his quest to “fundamentally transform” (destroy) this nation and the people (the GP’s of this country) are playing right along with him.

"I know exactly what it feels like to be discriminated against."

Your white privilege exempts you from discrimination. White Christians playing the victim card is ridiculous. Who crosses the street when you come walking the other way? When was the last time they went through the "bad check" book at the store when you use a debit card or check to pay? How many times have the cops been called when you walk down a residential street at night? Your victim-hood is your's to enjoy, but it doesn't really exist.

QUOTE: Now I see. If your family is not from Europe, you are not white. If you are half white, you are not white. If that isn't racism, could anyone out there explain why it isn't? Thank you, in advance, to any responders.

Let me take a stab at that one. Per President Obama and his supporters He is our first "BLACK" president. That would make Mr. Zimmerman a Hispanic. Unless of course guitbanger thinks Pres Obama and his supporters are racist.

The whole idea of race is socially made up by people. It has no significant scientific or biological meaning. It doesn't even have a consistent made-up definition. It's various uses are social, ethnic, anatomical, cultural, and geographic, to name a few. All humans are the same species, or "race" if you will. What most people refer to race is really just physical differences of skin tone, and size and shape of body parts. Humans are their own worst enemies. Some just can help needing to feel bigger, better, or tougher than someone else, which of course is ridiculous.

Mama - Your race already gives you an advantage. When was the last time you were followed by employees or stared at when in a mall or store. How many times were you stopped by the police for no reason. I haven't experienced it because I'm white.

I didn't say that people didn't listen to Rush. I said that I didn't think most white people like Rush. As for being a white christian, I think that I am headed towards being a minority compared to blacks, muslims, hispanic, and gays. I know exactly what it feels like to be discriminated against. Carefull saying Merry Christmas, God Bless, or anything to do with God. That is discriminating against my religion. I get no special treatment for employment, college tuition, or anything else. Please don't mistake racism as never being directed at white people.

I'm listening to Rush right now. He predicts that tomorrow's 50th celebration of MLK Jr, will be all about Obama.

Mama - It's not "how come" it's "why". Why would you care what you are called, you are not discriminated against. You may be profiled as a Christian white against muslims, gays, blacks, hispanics (unless they are working for you for peanuts). Nobody listens to Rush? Rush has the number 1 rated radio show followed by 3 other republican talking heads in this, so called "liberal media" society. He makes millions. Not bad for a b.hard that failed miserably his only 2 semesters of college.

Guitbanger, in response to your wanting an answer about it being racist calling only whites from Europe white being racist, I have this to say. As a white desended from Europeans I could care less if you call me beige, yellow, or off-white. I am not OVERLY sensitive to what color you call me. YOU do not have to walk on broken glass in order to figure out how to address my race. I haven't heard of a white person yet get offended by being called some slang words used by blacks. I'll give you a question. How come it's okay to call us Honkey (like Chris Rock did) and we let it roll off our backs and ignore it (no media coverage). Now saying the N word causes an outrage in the media. How is that not racism? And 25, even most white people don't like Rush. If that's the best example you got, you better look further.

If you want an answer to THAT question, ask the media!? They control what we see. Ask Al Sharpton. At least Jesse Jackson commented on these murders, I give him credit for that, although he said these murders are "frowned upon"....? Ask the president. Maybe the answer is simply "politics". You'll get answers assuming people would tell you the truth.

My answer was "they will get life, which they deserve". When it comes to trial, like others, it will get attention and already has gotten attention. The ones we don't hear about are the black on black murders, unless there is something unique about it. I still want an answer to my question.

So....your comments on the murders in question, 25 and banger? 2 black kids think it's OK to beat up an 88 year old WWII Vet with a flashlight? Let's hear it. Stay on subject. Thanks to the media, we've ALL heard TOO much about George Zimmerman.

guitbanger, didn't you see Rush Limberger break down in tears when he heard that an unarmed teen was profiled and stalked by a rube and then shot to death? Oh, yeah. I didn't either.

And where were the comments of outrage from all you whites when an unarmed teenage black was gunned downed by a want-to-be cop who profiled and pursued. For the record, the media had plenty of air time on that old vet that got beat to death. Unlike Zimmerman though, they will get life for which they deserve.

And what is the president talking about around the country? The cost of a college education??!! Seriously?? It's maddening! And the media is just so stupid and lazy, that they love all these "shining objects" as a distraction.
