Sad. but sadly far less than shocking, from Chicago Sun-Times:

Suspect: I Beat Up White Man Because I Am Mad About Trayvon Martin Case

Maywood, Ill. – Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.

Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”

What say you merchants of hate, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Spike Lee, Eric Holder, Barack Obama and NBC News?    As loathsome as the so-called aforementioned black leadership is,  I generally impressed by the linked article’s comments.

I don’t seem to recall any whites claiming that they assaulted a black because they were upset over O. J. Simpson murdering two whites, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.    Then, I don’t recall any white trash attempting rile the crowd. or at least if they did, the lamers did not fix on them.
