    Delbert Belton. Chris Lane. An unnamed 13-year-old boy riding a school bus in Florida. What do these people have in common? They are all whites who have been violently assaulted by blacks recently. And on Mother’s Day of this year, 20 people were gunned down in New Orleans by Akein Scott, also black. All of his victims were black. Not white-blacks or white-Hispanic-blacks, but blacks. Alas for these departed souls, unless you attract the narcissistic attention of Barack Obama, you’re unlikely to get the maudlin media mourning mash-up that Trayvon Martin received as a reward for beating George Zimmerman’s face...

    The judge overseeing the case of three teens charged in the shooting death of an Australian baseball player has issued a gag order. Stephens County Special Judge Jerry Herberger issued an Order Prohibiting Extrajudicial Statements on Tuesday at the request of District Attorney Jason Hicks. The order applies to all parties involved in the case, including attorneys and law enforcement, and prohibits them from talking to the news media.

    According to two Gallup polls, the verdict in the George Zimmerman case has caused more blacks to think new civil rights laws are needed, the government should be more involved in improving blacks’ welfare, and that blacks are treated badly in the United States. A Gallup poll the month after the verdict found 61% of blacks felt more civil rights laws should be on the books, as opposed to 53% the month before the verdict.

    As a Latino, I have faced my share of racism over the years, and I think I know it when I see it. My current definition of racism is having a distorted, twisted view of the world based on race. While this warped way of looking at the world based on race may take many forms, the clearest illustration is found in a hypocritical, selective, inconsistent perception and evaluation of reality based on race. It is obvious that people of color have faced racism throughout history, and that societies have not often treated them fairly. Our justice systems, as part...

    <p>In his “rant” on Monday, “The Cycle” co-host Toure took on the right wing’s obsession with keeping a “racial scorecard” since the Trayvon Martin trial, most recently around the heinous murder of Australian baseball player Chris Lane.</p> <p>“In the post-Trayvon days,” he said, “the right has a vile new tactic, which is to thrust his name and that of Delbert Belton into the media as a way to make some point about race in America,” something he says “even some of Fox News’ most familiar faces concede is silly.”</p>

    In “Reinforcing the Self-Serving Myth that Blacks Kill Whites Because They’re White,” Earl Ofari Hutchinson—Huffington Post writer, MSNBC contributor, and a co-host for Al Sharpton’s radio show—addresses the cold-blooded murder of white Australian Christopher Lane by black teenagers in Oklahoma. Although “there is not a shred of evidence or even the hint that [the] killing of Lane was racially motivated,” Hutchinson asserts, right-wingers imply otherwise. Theirs is a “false, self-serving,” and “cheap ploy” to marginalize “civil rights leaders” while promoting the “myth” of a national press determined to conceal an “epidemic” of black-on-white killing. In reality, the “miniscule” number of...

    President Obama should express condolences for the Australian baseball player killed this week in Oklahoma, that state’s governor said Sunday. “I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that, especially since the country of Australia has expressed its sentiments as to the murder itself,” Gov. Mary Fallon (R) said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. Lane was killed in a shooting in which three teenagers shot him while he was jogging. The teens said they killed him because they were bored. The silence over Lane's shooting has infuriated conservatives, in light of the extremely vocal...

    Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said Sunday that Australian college student Christopher Lane's death wasn't about gun control -- "it was about murder" -- and she believes it "would be nice" if President Barack Obama would express his condolences to Lane's family. "I certainly am going to say something on behalf of the state of Oklahoma, to the family," the Republican governor told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. "It would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences, how very sorry we are." Chancey Allen Luna, 16, James Francis Edwards Jr., 15, and Michael Dewayne Jones, 17....

    This week has pissed me off. It’s been a week filled with news I’d rather forget, but really, it’s one we all should remember. It should be a rallying cry, an opportunity for those interested in justice to reform a broken system and expedite a punishment reserved for a deserving few. A college baseball player from Australia was murdered in Duncan, Okla., because three monsters were bored. The sheer convergence of bad parenting required to bring these three together and have none of them, not one, object to the idea of murdering a random stranger for lack of anything to...

    The UK Daily Mail has already reported that “The three boys alleged to have gunned down an Australian baseball player out for a run because they were ‘bored’ were influenced by an ultra-violent rapper.” Specifically, “rather than being part of any gang, which had been suggested before, authorities believe the boys were just wannabes who were emulating the thuggish beliefs of their idols, with Chief Keef being prime suspect.” The Chicago Sun-Times posted a similar story. It turns out that Kenan Kinard, the unapprehended suspect in the murder of 89 year-old World War II veteran Delbert Belton in Spokane, Washington,...

    According to the Media, President Obama and the slick-haired Al Sharpton, we white devils are supposed to feel very sorry for the plight of the black teen. I believe Americans, by and large, do have sympathy for any person or group who’ve had life deal them a bad hand. However, young black thugs, you’ve got to work with us a little bit because you’re kind of operating against the storyline the aforementioned are singing about y’all, and thus, making it difficult for us to soulfully commiserate. Of what, pray tell, do I speak? Well, homeslice, it goes something like this:...

    Bestselling author and renown investigative reporter Jack Cashill believes there are strong parallels between the Trayvon Martin case in Florida and the Duncan, Okla., case where black teens are accused of killing Australian baseball player Christopher Lane. “The drugs, the racial animosity, the violence, the attachment to the hip hop culture – if Trayvon was the son of Barack Obama, they were his brothers,” Cashill commented to WND. “They were on the same track that Travyon was.” He was referencing Obama’s comment that he made in the Trayvon Martin case, that pushed the conflict into the national political scene. Obama...

    Three Oklahoma teens are accused of shooting and killing 23-year-old Chris Lane, an Australian student visiting the United States on a baseball scholarship. Sixteen-year-old Chancey Luna, along with his friends James Edwards and Michael Jones, have been charged in connection to the slaying. Not only was the case possibly a hate crime, it should spark a national conversation about the way our media treats race. The tweets and Facebook status updates from accounts linked to James Edwards paint a very clear picture of someone obsessed with violence and hatred for white people. Edwards had no problem putting violent and hate-filled...

    Soon after the completely senseless murder of an Australian athlete in Oklahoma, former Australian Deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer pleaded with Australian tourists to boycott the United States due to our supposed proliferation of guns which, as Mr. Fischer evidently believes, leads to an increase in violence and crime. “I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the three teenagers [but] it’s a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in the USA,” he said. The problem with Mr. Fischer’s statement? The data simply does not support his accusation, and even statistics from Mr....

  • No race motive in Australian's murder: prosecutor

    US prosecutors handling the case of two black teenagers accused of shooting dead a white Australian baseball player said Friday there was no evidence to suggest the killing was racially-motivated. The murder of Chris Lane, 22, in the small Oklahoma town of Duncan has triggered a race debate in America after it emerged that one of the victim's alleged killers had posted racist comments on Twitter earlier this year. Several commentators have questioned why authorities had not pressed to have hate crime charges added to the indictment of James Edwards, 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, who are both charged with...

    Racism should make people pretty angry. But for that very reason charges of racism should only be leveled carefully. George Zimmerman wasn’t motivated by race in confronting Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, a Hispanic, was himself one-eighth black. The prosecution in his case produced no statements by Zimmerman showing any racial bias. Alas, most people didn’t have time to follow the trial’s day-to-day testimony, and obviously didn’t know that. They got summaries presented by the mainstream media. NBC selectively edited a 9-1-1 call to make Zimmerman sound racist. President Obama pronounced the killing as racially motivated, first personalizing the case by comparing...

So is Drudge Report. Vigilantly on the lookout, 24 hours a day, for stories about black youths behaving badly. This isn’t a particularly new phenomenon, but it’s intensified noticeably in the past year for at least two reasons. Conservatives, particularly white conservatives, feel a burning urgency to find a racial counterweight to the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s shooting (including President Obama’s public comments about the incident),...

    "Ayeee I knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!" young James Edwards tweeted on July 15 in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Edwards's tweets surfaced after he and two of his homies were charged with killing Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma, last Friday. For the record, "woods" is short for peckerwoods, a derogatory term for white people. If Edwards, who is black, knocked out five woods as claimed, he would hardly be unique. As Colin Flaherty chillingly documents in his frequently updated book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, the...
