The social justice zeitgeist was in a hate-crime frenzy after the unthinkable murder of 7 year old Jazmine Barnes in the Houston area. On January 3rd, police issued a picture of the suspect -- a white, 30 something male with blue eyes driving a red pickup. LeBron James graciously ponied up for funeral expenses, race baiting (and very ethnically confused) activist Shaun King put up $50,000 for the reward fund, and other notables raised tens of thousands of additional dollars for a reward once it became known that a white individual was the prime suspect. Racial invective more toxic than the Chernobyl elephant's foot was spewing on CNN.

Oh well, maybe the celebrities will ask for a refund of their reward money and CNN will move on to the next lying, toxic, divisive drivel.

The similarities are uncanny:

But republicans are the ones fomenting the racial divide. :derp:

Edit: A second man has been arrested in the shooting and guess what? As shocking as it might be, he's not white either.

Racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

You are doing the exact thing you are wrongly blaming others of doing. You seriously need to take step back and and take a look at at yourselves. This was never a black/white thing. A young girl, who was being shot at while getting a look at the suspect, made a bad identification. No grand conspiracy against white people.

Incorrect, It was a race thing at the start.
Activists were clamoring for a hate crime designation. In fact, no less than Texas US Rep Sheila Jackson Lee said this “should be looked at as a hate crime”. The family lawyer stated “we do believe the murder was racially motivated”.


BTW, to no one’s surprise the story about the murder has suddenly disappeared from the front page of CNN.com and msnbc.com. Wonder why?

It was a "race thing" because the only suspect at the time was a *white guy* in a red Chevy S10, who sped away from the scene instead of possibly call the cops, because he claims he was afraid for his life. It turns out he wasn't involved, and that's that. End of story. It was a drive-by carried out on the wrong person, supposedly.

You're trying to blow something up into something it's not. Calm your tits.

The left has a great propensity to deny the obvious, accuse others of that which they are most guilty, and bury their constant mistakes..

You're calling out the wrong people here. What the posters here have done is call out the ones that tried to make it something that it wasn't. Why was it a "race thing" because the idiot was white? Are you saying the idiot couldn't have been black?

Uh, no, I'm definitely calling out the right people, bud.

It would just be really easy for you guys to delete this thread and simply go about your life being happy. But instead, you have to make a mountain out of a molehill because the suspect was *ORIGINALLY BELIEVED TO BE WHITE*. Even by the Harris County Sheriffs. And then when it's found it was actually two black guys, everyone is foaming at the mouth "OOOHHHHH RACE BAITING DUUURRRRRR" and then you proceed to change your Depends three times over because you keep filling them. It's a pretty sad existence.

No, what you are saying is that the color of his skin made a difference. And while you're suggesting others are making a mountain out of a molehill, you need to look at yourself.

Would they have offered the rewards if it had been a black man? Would we have heard about it on national news if it had been a black man?

Bottom line: If the suspect was ORIGINALLY BELIEVED TO BE BLACK, there would have been ZERO celebrity money coming forth, just like there was none forthcoming after all the other murders of children of color in Harris County the last few years.

NEXT.

Texas Democrat Congresswoman stands by remarks suggesting Jazmine Barnes’ killing may have been ‘hate crime’

By Greg Norman| Fox News
Black has admitted to taking part in the shooting as the driver.
A Texas Democratic Congresswoman is defending her earlier comments suggesting the drive-by shooting of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes may have been a hate crime, even though both suspects in the case turned out to be black – and not a white individual as police and members of the public initially believed.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, when asked Sunday by a reporter about some of the comments made in the aftermath of the young girl’s death in Houston on Dec. 30, said it was “absolutely not” irresponsible to make that suggestion.
Barnes was shot and killed while sitting in the backseat of her mother’s car. Witness descriptions of a white man in his forties at the scene of the shooting – and a sketch put out by police – prompted widespread speculation a hate crime had happened.
“I believe – and having written hate crime legislation, knowing the criteria, I believe that this should be looked at as a hate crime,” Lee said during a press conference Friday, in a video posted to the Congresswoman’s Facebook page. “We don’t want to have on the street someone who is willing to kill children and possibly kill them in the name of hate."

The next day, at a rally calling for justice for Barnes, Lee said “do not be afraid to call this what it seems to be — a hate crime,” according to several news organizations.
Prior to the arrests, Barnes’ family lawyer, Lee Merritt, also said “we do believe that it [the murder] was racially motivated in part because our nation at this moment is highly racially charged.”
Yet both suspects in the case are black, police confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday.
One of them, 20-year-old Eric Black Jr., has been charged with capital murder and is making his first court appearance today. News of his arrest emerged Sunday.
Moments after police announced Black was in custody, Merritt wrote in an Instagram post that a second suspect, Larry Woodruffe, 24, was arrested in the shooting. Woodruffe is believed to be the shooter in the incident, according to Merritt, although police as of Monday have not confirmed the arrest, his identity or alleged role, the AP says.

The reporter on Sunday asked Lee: “Do you feel it was irresponsible at all to suggest that this was a hate crime when we didn’t have all the facts?”
Her response: “Absolutely not, nothing is irresponsible when it comes to the loss of a precious 7 or 8-year old."
She added: “The good thing was that in the comments that were made, there was no hysteria, there was no encouraging individuals to go out and find that person. It was nothing but orderly respect for the rule of law allowing our law enforcement to be able to do their tasks. And then now to call for an understanding that any violence against a child should not be the norm and that we should stand up against all violence.”
Investigators believe the killing appears to have been a case of mistaken identity “where the intended targets were likely someone else,” Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Sunday.

“This death has sparked a lot of discussion on many different levels,” Gonzalez also said. “We know that there is an important discussion that does need to take place about race, about the real fear and concerns that hate crimes are in an uptick across this county. We also need to talk about gun violence.”

Ummm...I really don't see what's wrong with her response there. Again, you all are engaging in the same behavior you accuse others of doing.
