JOY ANN REID, MSNBC HOST: Chris Lane is absolutely getting lost in it, as is the issue of guns. I want to go back just for a second to the Trayvon Martin case, because, I think, that is what spawned the desire for revenge almost for people on the rightÖ Just for the fact that African-Americans dared to be outraged about the case, about George Zimmerman not being arrested.

Go home, Joy Ann. You are drunk.
Idiots just cannot over themselves
shes guilty of “writing” under the influence of PURPLE DRANK...
No, it is the conservative desire to show progressive night crawlers as the completely political bottom dwelling hypocrites they are.
so if she’s not outraged by his murder...what is she...happy with it?
Surely, though, the point is to address what actually happened, not to dismiss it when it doesn't fit one's own political agenda.
we can point to multiple cases since trayvon that the mnedia covers up.
how bout the little white boy shot to death in his stroller by the pissed off black punk robbing his mom?
how bout the white kid lit on fire by couple blacks “this is for trayvon?”
how bout the 95 year old vet killed by black thug as he’s an old white guy easytarget?
there are others, many others.
Your Race Card is overdrawn, Joy. The account is empty.
We could go into all the differences, for example this was just a drive by shooting, but beyond that the lady’s comment is beyond ignorant. It goes clean through to stupid.
Has Joy Ann interviewed Chris Lane’s family about how petty whites are to be angry about his being stalked and murdered?
Didn’t think so
Only blacks, homos and illegals count anymore.
The prevailing pattern I see is that no matter what a black person does, there is some excuse that makes it ok. Somehow everyone else, whites especially, are expected to excuse it and understand it.
Murder a white guy: frustration over Zimmerman
Live on welfare: reparations for slavery
Flunk out or drop out: biased education system
Fail to get admitted to a school: prejudice and educational inequalities
Nothing is ever their fault. Somehow the rest of us, including many decent blacks, manage to deal with frustration, bias, inequity, and sometimes just plain bad luck and still graduate, get jobs, become productive, pay our own way, raise our children, and avoid committing felonies.
I’m not surprised that any individual would use those excuses. It’s pretty much human nature to want to blame others for our failings. (How many people know of car accidents where both people insist it was the other person’s fault.) But what I find amazing is the tribe (not using the word racially) mentality where they are willing to excuse anything and everything based on a common skin color. Cue Eric Holder: “my people.”
I guess that the desire to be able to defend you and yours from thugs is now defined as “revenge”. With that as the new standard, I’m in full revenge mode and will not bare my belly or my throat to appease these morons.
Trayvon Martin has become a kind of Rorschach test for Americans, black and white.
The race-grievance industry can't stay away from it. It's like Selma II, with the racial angle entirely fabricated.
