Can You Tell The Difference Between These Two?
Other than the facts that in one case the Justice Department sent people to stir up racial animus before the trial, Serial race baiters Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Van Jones, Tavis Smiley, Barack Obama, etc., also stirred up discontent and violence, and the news media finished the job – in only one case.
In the other case the shooter was arrested and the boy’s family and community lived with the quiet grief of their loss.
The shooting death of unarmed white South Carolina teen Marley Lion has drawn comparisons on the Internet to the similar killing of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin after a Charleston woman made an illustration to highlight Marley’s case.
Lizz O’Neill of James Island, S.C., said she used the comparison photo to highlight what she called the senseless killings of youth and was not viewing Lion’s alleged murder at the hands of three black men as a racially motivated crime.
“I wanted to make the point that lives are lost every day. Some are nationally recognized and some never make it past the local news,” O’Neill told the Charleston Post and Courier. “Every life, in my opinion, deserves the same recognition despite race or circumstances.”
