The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. – Edmund Burke
Yesterday my heart broke in thousand pieces for the poor white mentally disabled man who was kidnapped and abused by four young blacks in Chicago. A Chicago police spokesman called this heinous, racially motivated crime a “stupid decision” made by kids…er, young adults because all four were 18 years old, and refused to call this atrocity what it really was – a hate crime.Young adults who made a stupid decision!
The media has its doubts that there was any racial motivation behind the prank. The poor man was held for two days. He was verbally abused, tortured, forced to drink toiled water, scalped, and forced to say that he loved black people. All this was filmed and posted live on Facebook.
Now, imagine if four young white adults kidnapped, abused and scalped a black person. The national press would scream bloody murder! And they would be right. Why don’t they give the same support and attention to the racially motivated crimes against a white person is beyond my comprehension.
