Racism and Prejudice
Case 1: A “white-hispanic” kills a black teen in self-defense. His history: mentoring black children, and defending a black guy against the son of a policeman. Media verdict: “A murder motivated by racism!!!” Riots and death threats ensue.
Case 2: A bored black teen goes out with his friends and shoots a white baseball player for the fun of it. His history: boasting about how many “woods” (white people) he’d knocked out, and tweeting: “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.” DA verdict: Race is not a factor in this crime.
Something’s not right here…
