White ex-Marine Beaten to Death by 4 Black Men - Where's Sharpton Now?

Where's the national coverage?

Wheres' the indignation?

Where are the protests?

I suppose a march against this would be considered racist. After all, we're supposed to be tolerant, especially of those not tolerant of us.

Read it and weep:

Our shared thread is that crime is crime, we're not all the same color, and there are some very vocal and visible people - AND NEWS AGENCIES - that have motives for fomenting unrest between the races.

There are laws on the books for hate crimes.

There should be laws punishing the profit motive behind throwing another log on the fire.

It's not unlike shouting "FIRE" in a crowded movie theater.

There should be laws punishing the profit motive behind throwing another log on the fire.

We agree ... let's begin with Fox News and the U.K. rag that ran this story.

That what you had in mind?

Statistically, all of those charged are Democrats. Part of the 97% black support for Obama.

When will the Democrat Party change whatever it is doing to attract such people?  Encouraging black resentment and hatred of whites.  This is happening too much to dismiss.

And statistically, virtually every heroine addict began with milk.

The statistics reveal a much more accurate portrait than pictures you and others download to present as the typical of TP members.  You aren't suddenly concerned about facts as they concern real people, are you?

Where are those NT TP people, by the way?

Jon,

I must ask, why would Al be there?

Seriously?

He has been a champion for the black man in America, has he not?

Isn't it ALWAYS important to champion a cause? Isn't there a lesson that he can teach his constituency through this incident? Wouldn't it be of value for a black 'leader' to take the opportunity to stand up and look at this crime and say "NO!! This is NOT the way to heal the wounds that exist between the races! This is a STEP BACWARD, my brothers!! We cannot hope to foster harmoney through these actions!!"

It's grandstanding, and it's image. Self-serving garbage.

Nothing more.

It's empty, and the brothers know it.

Exactly. So if you knew the answer, why ask it?

Per,

I believe our purpose here is to stimulate and solicit conversation.

It'd be tough to get more people to join, otherwise ;-)

Jonathan darling,

I do realize that. But my question to you would be why the silly subtext. Of course Al would have nothing to do with this. He has nothing to gain.

He has nothing to gain.

Exactly my point. HE has nothing to gain. But, if he were the true voice of the black community, his COMMUNITY would have EVERYTHING to gain. The only people that step up to the podium are the people who have some selfish self-interest on the subject. And that includes our hopefully one-term POTUS, who has inserted himself too many times on a personal basis, not thinking of country first or justice first.

I've got 2 sons, and neither of them looks like that dead marine.

What about it??

Where's the national coverage?

Well, since YOU know about it, there must be coverage, eh?

And let's be fair and balanced ... when Fox "covered" the Trayvon Martin incident, they did it from the George Zimmerman perspective.

No reasonable human being condones the beating death of any innocent individual.

And Sharpton got into it because the family of the victim asked him to; the history of racist violence warrants his involvement. And if this crime was racially motivated, there should be equal intervention and outrage.

You have a problem with that?

.....And Bf with three teen boys went to ACL-Live at the Moody Theater to see Slayer with special Guests Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus last night. I know, I should know better than to expose impressionable young men with bands like this but i was once that teen boy too. Skate boards, and thrash metal are a right of passage. Two of these teen boys spend their free time jamming in my game room, one on bass and the other on guitar. Their musical interests are much broader at their age then i…

Managers versus Leaders -- Big Difference

I ran across this the other day and it immediately reminded me of the great leaders (bosses) that I worked for (in and out of the military) as well as the really bad ones (mostly in the private sector).

I have been retired for a number of years and a couple of the people I worked for in the private sector or served under in the military are still important parts of my life as friends, mentors and counselors as I watch middle age in the rear view mirror.

Manufacturing Jobs in the U.S. as a Career Choice

Manufacturing in America Infographic Screenshot.jpg

I saw this on LinkeIn and while the numbers can be argued, the underlying fact that fewer people are choosing the manufacturing floor as a career than ever before.

The offshoring of jobs is certainly a factor, automation another, but as the operations/production based is renewed as part of the revival of the middle class who will fill those skilled…

Military fighting for our country have their families destroyed by Congress.

Veterans who don't make enough to buy food and housing for their families.  Only a very small percentage of military families get to live in base housing.

What states have the worst income inequality?  Jobs sent overseas is destroying the country. Republican Congress men and Congress Women have been blocking all attempts to stop paying tax deferments to Corporations who send jobs overseas.  First Company who got super rich off of this was Mitt Romney's.

Do not get payed enough to survive.

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2014/04/19/food-a19.html ; Not making a living wage continues to increase at an alarming rate of 8% per year.  Congress refuses to stop Tax deferments to Companies sending jobs overseas.  How can this continue without a revolution?
