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…
