|Two months ago in Florida, 28 year old George
Zimmerman shot and killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin. The
details of the shooting are yet unknown but according to
Zimmerman, he was acting in self defense.
Organizations across the country are
protesting, outraged that Zimmerman hasn't been charged. The
media, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, members of congress and even
the president have gone to great lengths to claim racial
intolerance and profiling in the case openly stating that
Zimmerman has escaped justice because he is white and Martin is
black. The New Black Panthers have even put a cash bounty on
Zimmerman, dead or alive.
Again, the details of the shooting are yet
Five years ago, teenagers Channon
Christian and Christopher Newsom were murdered in the most
heinous way here in Knoxville. Four black men and a black woman
committed unspeakable acts to these two kids.
The trial went on for months.
Ultimately, all five were convicted. Now all the trials will
have to be retried due to the judges drug abuse arrest.
Where's the outrage? All the
details of this case are well known. Why aren't those same
organizations, the media, members of congress or even the
president speaking out about this case.
If there was ever a case of
racially motivated killing, this is it. Why the double standard?
Kind of makes you sick doesn't
