Sharpton, Jackson, Media Silent About Black On White Hate Crime in S.C. (And Elsewhere)Topics: National News, Political News and commentaries
Six black men assault a white man outside a restaurant in Seneca, S.C. after insulting him with a racial remark. So severe is the beating and so obvious is the racial motive that local police refer the case to federal officials.
So, naturally you expect the national media and civil rights leaders like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson to jump all over the case right? You also expect Barack Obama to quickly jump at the opportunity to talk about how "stupidly" the men acted and how the man "could be his son," or "friend," or something of the sort, right?
You'd be dead wrong. As R. Cort Kirkwood explains, in sharp contrast to their handling of the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida, the leftist media, "civil rights" leaders, and political leaders have been completely silent on the case.
[...] Searching for "Seneca," "South Carolina" and "beating" did not return hits on the websites of the New York Times, the Washington Post, Fox News, CBS, NBC, or ABC.Read more here.
MSNBC, the main site for NBC News on the Internet, carried yet another two stories about the Trayvon Martin case and ran teasers about it on their homepage. The network did find the time to edit the recording of Martin's alleged assailant's phone call with police to make Zimmerman appear to be a racist. It has since launched an investigation into the matter to find out what went wrong.
But observers have noted that the media's voice isn't the only one that seems stilled in the quest for racial justice. Nothing on the South Carolina case has been heard from, for instance, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others, who bill themselves as "civil rights" leaders.
On the other hand, they have been pushing the Trayvon Martin story nonstop for weeks, while members of Congress are flatly accusing George Zimmerman, who shot Trayvon, of murder, a crime with which he has not been charged. An example is leftist Representative Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.): "I want America to see this sweet young boy who was hunted down like a dog, shot in the street, and his killer is still at large," she declared.
As Kirkwood goes on to point out, the Seneca beating isn't the first vicious crime with racial overtones that the leftist media, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and fellow race baiting racialists have ignored.
There's the racial attack against a 13 year-old boy in St. Louis last February in which the boy's assailant told him "This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy," before dousing him with gasoline and setting him ablaze. Another major crime the media ignored is the Dec. 14, 2000 Wichita Massacre in Kansas in which Jonathan and Reginald Carr wound up a week-long crime rampage by torturing five young whites and murdering four. The orgy of violence was so sadistic it nearly defies description -- and all the while the leftist media yawned. And let's not forget the black-on-white murder case left uncovered by the major leftist media -- the murderous frenzy known as The Knoxville Horror, in which a gang of black killers raped and murdered two whites in Knoxville, Tenn. And as though cases like these (and many others like them) are bad enough ... as Kirkwood also notes ... aside from ignoring black-on-white hate crimes, the media also covers hate-crime hoaxes with remarkable intensity.
