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.

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?
