The effort to turn this murder into a race thing is appalling.

A white person was killed. We MUST discuss race!

Just keep it out of the discussion when a black man is killed. It's not relevant!

I think they just straight up don't understand the difference between a racially motivated thing and any other thing in which two peoples' races are different.

I for one welcome the day where our president of race X must denounce the actions of those of race X who commit murder(s) against those of race Y which would in no way consume the majority of his day.

To the surprise of no-one, 30 seconds after this story hit the news the wingnuts in my life piled on with "Why ain't Fartbongo and Sharpton addressin' this like they done did with Trayvon Martin?1!?"

The correct answer is "because smart people have better things to do than respond to wingnut race-baiting."

I think a lesson from Benghazi can be learned here: Obama's timing is terrible.  I mean, Jesus, why didn't he comment the very god damn minute after Chris Lane was killed?  I mean, nevermind that the elapsed time between Chris Lane's death and Obama's comments was considerably less than Trayvon Martin's death and Obama's comments, it still stinks to high heaven.  What did Obama know and when did he know it?  If Obama knew about Chris Lane, what was he waiting for?  For the media to actually get the right f*cking images of the 3 murderers together?  For the right-wing patriotsphere to get their talking points in order?  Why didn't Obama just drop everything, regardless of domestic or foreign import, and discuss his feelings about the Chris Lane killings regardless or their lack of controversy due to a sh*tty law, their apparent lack of connection to racial bigotry, or even the justice system process taking effect like the Trayvon Martin case?  Why do you hate Chris Lane, Australia, kangaroos and Paul Hogan, Obama?

I have. It's extremely facile and devoid of any serious thought. Black or white, he's fundamentally just a smarmy Friedman acolyte, with everything that comes with it. Here are the blurbs from some of his recent columns:

Like other truly talented phonies, Barack Obama concentrates his skills on the effect of his words on other people -- most of whom do not have the time to become knowledgeable about the things he is talking about, tainted with a  lot of apologist racism-is-over thinking and painfully florid prose. Imagine a particularly economic-minded George Will who occasionally says "I have answers for the black community!"

In recent columns, he argued that black culture shouldn't pursue its own identity and compared it to regional Appalachian isolationism, argued racism has basically lost all meaning, and argued that poverty and other factors leaning to crime should be ignored because some people can get out.

One thing that I noticed when reading his things is that he loves to bring up factoids and stories and points of historical interest without tying them into his argument (or even making an argument) more than superficially. His writing style reeks of "I've shown you how smart I am, now listen to me because of that smartness," without connecting that smartness to something that is actually relevant to the topic. He writes about Appalachian life and quotes Fernand Braudel while talking about why black culture shouldn't get its own identity, without bringing up any similarities between the two wildly different examples. brought up Jaime Escalante (the teacher Stand and Deliver is based on) when talking about privatizing schools, and led a column about immigration by talking about Senator William P. Dillingham's 1911 study on immigration without actually talking about  what the fark it said.

He also tends to wrote "homeless" in quotation marks.

Everyone loves lists.  Let's see how this comparison is utterly retarded:

1) Not racially motivated - one of the kids was f*cking white and they confessed that they were bored.
2) No controversial law invoked (Stand Your Ground)
3) No one is doubting that justice will take place or what justice should look like - not so in Florida.
4) The right is whining even before the case has started - so where is the outrage?  That Obama did't say he is outraged that there was..... a murdered white guy?
5) There isn't even any murky evidence - the dudes confessed in this case.

Am I missing anything?

I didn't even hear about this until I saw it on some right-wing rage meme on Facebook.  And I don't think Obama spends much time on Facebook.

Jesus Christ, what is the fascination with bashing Sharpton and Jackson from the far right? They haven't been relevant since the 1980's and no dimmycrat gives a shiat about either of them. How telling is it that the dipshiats have to vent their racism over those two? Do they just not know of any newer black people?

actually much of the ado about Treyvon Martin was stirred up by sharpton. He has his own tv show also. So he does have an audience and that audience is mostly democrat.

jackson not so much, but still carries a lot of weight in the black community.

Who are these new black people of which you speak? Ones that are as loud, and attention whoary as sharpton and jackson.

The problem with ignoring the racial motivation of this killing is to say that the only reason a white man would kill a black man is racism, but killing is just what black kids do, so race can be ignored.

The liberal comedian Borat once referred to Keyes as a "genuine chocolate face" and no one called him out on it. I guess racism doesnt matter if you're a lib.

As for Walter Williams he used to play for the Sacramento Kings and I think now he's a meth dealer.

Here's the thing retardmitter. Those you mention didn't shut up about Zimmerman being racist despite the facts nobody could actually find anything Zimmerman did or said as being about race. Not even the DoJ "prove he was racist" hotline found anything. The shooters in this instance have evidenced racism in their ignorant tweets.

You also have the issue of certain news outlets forcing zimmerman to lose his hispanic heritage.

In other words, those you mentioned forced a racial narrative where there wasn't one to further their stance while pushed aside a racial narrative where there actually is one when it hurhurts their stance.

You DO realize you are the only one saying this, right? One of the killers was black, one white, and one mixed race. Race can be ignored because nowhere has race been pointed to as a motivator, and no one (but you) has thrown in the "it's what black kids do" red herring "argument".

One wonders why you would suggest that...

Many of his supporter's actions were.

But of course, Obama never said Zimmerman was a racist, derangement syndrome victims were crying about Obama's use of empathy.
