The cry of black racism has long served that sector of the population well. It has allowed individuals otherwise insignificant like the rest of us, their perpetual fifteen minutes of fame, and given the patina of celebrity to those who point fingers at largely imagined injustices. From what I have read about this case, Omar Thornton killed his fellow workers because he had been caught red handed, on video tape, stealing beer from his place of employment. One report indicated that this was not the first time. It is difficult to argue with a film depicting you stealing. Evidently, confronted with the truth, and no longer able to exist on the lies of racial injustice, was too much for Thornton. He, like anyone who blames society for their own personal sin, retaliated on those around him for his own bitterness and inner evil. It is time for the media and the observer to recognize that nearly every employer, particularly larger ones, literally bends over backwards to appease their black employees. It is simply too easy for blacks to use the race card and most human resources departments are loath to let that happen.
I forget which genius first said it but it was fairly common in the ‘60’s to hear that “So-called ‘crimes’ by blacks against whites are really political acts.”
