The Color of Death

Hat tip: Legal Insurrection [1]

From Heather McDonald, National Review [2]:

But is the Martin shooting emblematic of a larger problem? Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the mainstream media here and abroad certainly are portraying it as such. That larger problem, of course, is lethal white racism and a criminal-justice system allegedly indifferent to the killing of blacks. At a rally Thursday night in Sanford, Sharpton said [3] that “Trayvon represents a reckless disregard for our lives that we’ve seen for too long,” and warned that “they,” presumably whites, would try to trick black protesters into violence by “send[ing] in provocateurs.” “Blacks are under attack,” said Jesse Jackson [4] on Friday from Chicago. “Targeting, arresting, convicting blacks, and ultimately killing us is big business.” MSNBC analyst Karen Finney claimed [5] that “racist rhetoric” used by Rush Limbaugh and several Republican presidential candidates was responsible for Martin’s death.

In side the gated communities of the elite black opinion leaders,  maybe white anti-black prejudice is their biggest problem.   However in the real world, where real blacks  live, it not white who are killing blacks, but rather other blacks, but who care about blackacide?   Certain not the good reverends.
