EDITOR:

Where is Sharpton, Jackson, Holder and Obama? If three white teens went joy riding and killed a black man jogging down the street all hell would break loose. Jackson and Sharpton would be leading marches — Holder would be demanding that justice be served and he’d have the DOJ and FBI looking for racial hatred and fueling the fire. Obama would make a speech about how racist our society is. The mainstream media would be going crazy trying to outdo each other with profiles of the white thugs.

However, when two blacks gun down a white man there isn’t even a peep from the so-called black leaders in this country. Racism does exist in this country — it exists both ways but you won’t hear that from these four. Sharpton and Jackson benefit from racial discord and the have no interest in solving the problem. Holder won’t dare open an investigation into this maybe being a hate crime and Obama won’t say that one of these thugs could have been my son. All four are big-time hypocrites.

    When it comes to race relations, the team of Obama/Holder has put our Nation back 60 years, and don't look for our dear reverends Jessie or Al to ever step up to the plate and help, there's no money in it for them....Dr. Martin Luther King is no doubt rolling in his grave over these four imposters..

    It didn't make the national news, but late last month in Spokane Washington an 88 year old WWII Veteran who took a bullet for this country was drug out of his car and savagely beaten to death by two 16 year old's. His name nickname was "Shorty" he was only 5 feet tall. His attackers were black. He'd just recently lost his wife and he was waiting to drive home a friend. I don't think the Rev. Martin Luther King would defend this kind of behavior. It doesn't matter to me what color they are, I just wish we had an answer how to stop this kind of violence.

    It is racist to talk about the "content of their character". There is nothing but wealth and power in keeping people dumbdown and dependent on the government plantation. They tell us minorities aren't even capable of acquiring an I.D. and anyone who disagrees is racists. The world is upside down.

    Mr. Reilly the three young men you are referring to are in jail awaiting trial for murder. What more do you want? And as I understand they are eligible for the death penalty and are being tried as adults.

    Mr. Lollipop, how about some reciprocal outrage? Is that asking too much? Or does that bus only travel in one direction?

    Hey Paddy I'm outraged are you happy? Oh and George Zimmerman just got his second speeding ticket since being acquitted. That is something you will never hear about these three fine young men. See the difference?
