Don’t Ignore Race In Christopher Lane’s Murder
Time Ideas ^ | August 22, 2013 | John McWhorter

Posted on 08/22/2013 6:48:26 AM PDT by Biggirl

Australian Christopher Lane was killed on Monday in Oklahoma by three teens, one of whom has said they were just “bored.” The right is complaining that the media is making nothing of the fact that two of the teens were black whereas Lane was white, as opposed to the massive alarm sounded in cases such as white (or white-ish) George Zimmerman killing black Trayvon Martin.

I stumbled across some tweets made by one of the killers. Yes - race is absolutely a factor.

Race is the only factor. I would suppose that will be true at their trial. For some reason it will NOT be the fault of the murderers but the fault of the white establishment,

You will never persuade most whites that race is a factor in any interracial killing. Whites are too mesmerized by egalitarianism and media propaganda. The dominant white belief system being blacks are ‘Jes Folks a tryin to make a buck.’ and ‘Rap is Cool!’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Of course it was. Shortly before the murder, one of the killers was on the phone to his fat girlfriend complaining about some Creepy Oz Cracker.

(sorry. lame joke, I know)

Here's a simple formula:

White kills Black = RACISM
Black kills White = Another sad consequence of the injustice of white society.

Got it?

ALL 3 are black. One just happens to look like an Obama son, if he had had one. The clue— They were “crips”. No “cracker” could be a “crip”

I saw the pictures. They’re all three black. One was of lighter skin color, but was definitely A-A. The media is trying to force the race issue out of the story, but sorry a-holes it’s there loud, and clear, because those three punks are making it loud, and clear.

In truth, they say what they say because they are simply are afraid that if really, really think, the old accusations of being racists comes right back to them that is why. They are hiding what they really think in other words.

"Is race a big factor here in this recent murder?"

Some tweets believed to be from Edwards' account...:

"...In one outrageous tweet, Edwards writes: “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.”

In another, he claims he “knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court.” The word “woods” is also a derogatory term used to describe white people.

You will never persuade most whites that race is a factor in any interracial killing.

Do you think most whites are that stupid? Or are they being politically correct to avoid being called a racist?

What about interracial crime, white-on-black attacks and the reverse?

"After researching the FBI numbers for "Suicide of a Superpower," this writer concluded: "An analysis of 'single offender victimization figures' from the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, eight times the 55,685 whites committed against blacks. Interracial rape is almost exclusively black on white -- with 14,000 assaults on white women by African Americans in 2007. Not one case of a white sexual assault on a black female was found in the FBI study."

Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites, they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse. By those 2007 numbers, a black male was 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.

Also where the killing had taken place, in OK, it is considered the most conservative state in the USA so this will be an open and shut case.

That is the argument from silence. If people do not tell you what they really think then one never really knows. America elected the clown currently in the White House.

Well if race is acknowledged here then it will have to be acknowledge in many other black on whites crimes and we can’t have that. It doesn’t fit with the evil white man scenario nor the non-whites ‘can’t be racist’ BS.

Intelligence is not necessarily the criteria. Whites are heavily propagandized by a media that knows what it is doing. They know their craft. The left has been in control of the media since the mid 1930’s. Media means radio, TV, movies, books, magazines, the internet and the education establishment. They win we lose! the statement attributable to Goebbels was correct when he invented the idea “take a lie, make it big enough, and repeat it often enough and people will believe it.”

No the facts as YOU report them are based upon people being PC thus not saying what they really believe. PC is refusing to say what one really believes thus the person hearing the PC remarks will never know what the PC speaker really believes.

We don’t yet know whether the attack on Lane was racially motivated...

Of course we don't KNOW. How can we KNOW what another is thinking?

But 'killing a cracker' was a known crip initiation rite for decades. And the perp's knew nothing about the victim except his appearance.

So maybe they hate runners/joggers? Or men in general?

Or maybe they recognize what stupid and pathetic losers they are, and they hate 'successful' people? But PROBABLY, JWW (Jogging While White) had something to do with the attack.

If this is the old west, that's kind of OK. But if so, we need to arm ourselves and stamp out the bad guys.

Whites are heavily propagandized by a media that knows what it is doing. They know their craft.

Sorry, but you are basing your conclusions on your own feelings. Why do you think there was such a wide divergence among the races on the guilt of OJ Simpson? Why did Obama receive only 39% of the white vote? Do you really believe whites have been brainwashed and will believe the propaganda rather than their own lyin' eyes?

Why did a recent Rasmussen poll find African-Americans are more likely to be viewed as racist than whites?

"Thirty-seven percent of poll respondents said "most black Americans" are racist, compared to just 15 percent who said most whites are racist and 18 percent who said most Hispanics are racist."

"Black respondents ranked their own demographic as more likely to be racist. Thirty-one percent of African-Americans said most blacks are racist, according to the polling organization, while only 24 percent of those respondents said most whites are racist."

Fact he received 39% of the white vote. Fact guess who is in control and in the process of consolidating that control. All one has to do is open ones eyes and ears and listen to the insults see the discrimination and the deadly assaults without effective response.
