antisemite posts outline.
In all the above cases, the perpetrators were black.
But much more importantly, the initial media reports made an explicit point of suggesting the targetting appeared 'random'.
The events also share the peculiarity of getting the absolute minimum of national press coverage before being swiftly dropped from the media,
despite double rapes, infants shot in the face while sleeping or being burned alive on Christmas Eve.
The point of sharing this is not to suggest or persuade you that these attacks were racially motivated.
The point is for you to remember these people and how they died, and to think, the next time the media bombards you with
months of trying to recruit your sympathy for the next spectacle like "Justice for Trayvon".

the trayvon case wasn't originally supposed to be about racism. it was supposed to highlight the flaws with florida's "stand your ground" law, which allows you to shoot people in self defense. the reason it got media attention was to try and repeal that law.

I thought it got attention was because Obama personally said it was a hate crime?

Although none of the people who did those horrible things went to court and got away with it.

1. He wasn't told by police, he was told by a 911 dispatch who had no authority over him. He was told "we don't need you to do that".

2. He turned around to return to his car, thats when Trayvon jumped him. This is indisputable, it was confirmed by forensic analysis of Trayvon and Zimmerman's clothes.

I would argue the biggest mistake was when the ape decided he was gonna beat on some random white guy for shits and giggles and got a bullet in the chest for his stupidity.

The difference is that EVERYONE agreed that whoever killed those people deserved a terrible sentence. I dare you to find someone that disagreed with that.

The same can't be said for the Trayvon Martin case.

The blacks can have the media attention. The whites get to have favorability in the legal system.

Square?

People are murdered and sometimes the murderer and victim are different races. Very few times is it racially motivated.

Can't we just stop talking about this?

5 black people kidnap torture to death two white people and tweet about killing whites

Jesus Christ, just 12 and burned to death via blow torch. And the couple, my God. Some people are just... I can't even nor do I want to imagine how fucked up they were.

Travon already got justice though, he assaulted and battered another person and got shot.

i dont understand whats wrong with america, you would think that you guys have the same wiew on a human life as the rest of the west at least, but you dont, how come killing and robbing for a few 100 bucks happens all the time in america, and yet you have some of the most strickt jail sentences in the world. is it your IQ whos serioulsly lower than every body elses? bechouse nobody kills for fun in my country, and people dont bother robbing a store for 300-600 bucks, espesially not shooting the casier without a balaklava.

it is not to make fun of you america, i just dont understand how stupid criminals inn your country can be!

How many times am I going to have to say this.   
   
The outcry was not because the murder, it was because the police did not arrest Zimmerman. And it took the outcry to get a trial.   
   
The outcry was because the justice system failed, and when the justice system fails people don't feel safe.   
   
Also the reason the media latched on to it was because the media is like the slime from Ghostbusters 2. It thrives on anger, hate, and and negative emotions, and that case was filled with it.

I thought we were done hearing about this by now, especially here. This is funnyjunk, nobody cares about your political views.

I would say this is beating a dead horse, but people are still fucking going on about it.   
 I live in Florida, so I probably get the worst of it.

What about this hostage situation in Kenya? Nobody's covering the part where they shot all the white people on sight and let all the Muslims go. Anyone they were unsure of was lined up and quizzed on the Quran and executed on the first wrong answer.

Now of all those cases, how many of the perpetrators were released without being initially arrested? And how many of them were brought into a trial where they weren't certainly going to be convicted? None you say? Well damn, I wonder if that had anything to do with the lack of comparable media coverage.

I swear, this exact post pops up at least once a month and thumbwhores its way to front page because the legions of social rejects on FJ will thumb anything that criticizes black people, feminists, etc. You're all literally exactly the same as the liberals who ate up the media bullshit about this being a white on black hate crime.

The fact that these atrocities were not sufficiently reported on again shows how little backbone the major US news outlets have, it's all about getting the highest TV ratings by blowing up controversies instead of reporting news.

However I still hold onto the belief that we didn't see justice in the verdict of the Trayvon case.

shit like that trayvon bullshit should be a right and wrong thing. not a black and white thing. of course thats the white devil speaking and .......black power!
