Again, if we weren't being played like violins by the liberal media at the behest of this administration to keep us divided for political purposes, we wouldn't be having this discussion.
So, are you saying that it's the "liberal medias" fault that these posters found humor in the tragic death of those two women?
That's a stretch.

I might add that it's the rightwing mentality to categorize everything into politics; they likely assumed that these women were Democrats (organic farmers) so therefore it was funny that they drowned to death. Same with Trayvon Martin; he is symbol of a black man (President Obama), therefore, he deserved to be murdered.

"White Man, Blackened, Snatches Purse": The Long Ugly History of White People Blaming Black Folks For Their Crimes

Look a Negro!

All of the White Conservative concern trolling over black on black crime is a deflection against the need to talk about racial inequality in the criminal justice system. The Ted Nugents, Rush Limbaughs, Bill O'Reillys and other mouthpieces for the White Right do not care one iota about black people's personal safety, security, lives, or happiness.

If their concern was sincere, they would also be willing to talk about reasonable gun control policies, correcting the structural and institutional inequalities that breed crime, embrace the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution, and want to press for public hearings about unfair and disparate law enforcement practices along the lines of race and class in America.

Why talk about institutional racism and racial profiling when it is easier to talk about some imagined indifference by "black leadership" to the problem of crime in the African-American community?

The White Right is of course mute when it comes to the centuries-old pattern in the United States where whites dishonestly claim that black people have committed crimes, when in fact the white "victim" is often the perpetrator.

....In keeping with this habit, one of the most recent obsessions by the White Right is that there was a "cover-up" by the "liberal media" of "white victimhood" at the hands of "black criminals". Not surprisingly, this meme is a lie.

The white "victim" Sherry West said that those default criminals, i.e. "two black men" killed her 13 month old child. Her story is now unraveling.

I often wondered why white criminals just do not put on the burnt cork and go out and commit crimes as a "black" person. Given the racialized crime narrative in the media, and how implicit/subconscious bias against black people is a fixture in the American psyche, such a gambit would seem to have a high probability of success.

Evidence in the Baby Santiago case seems to point more and more toward the fact that the two black youth accused of this shooting are innocent of the crime they’ve been blamed for. Yet their pictures have been plastered all over social media, and they’ve been labelled as “baby killers”– a favorite phrase of the right-wing since the day of the shooting. Can we hope that there will be a fair trial for these youth? Can we hope that our justice system will not continue to convict the innocent, while allowing the guilty to go free? Can we hope that the media will report fairly and accurately on this case? Can we hope that the Georgia court system will be fairer and more just than the one in Florida?

And what of Sherry West? If it turns out that a southern white women did in fact kill her own infant in order to collect some insurance money, will American’s show the same level of vehemence they did when they believed it was two black teens who killed Antonio Santiago? Will they still cry out for execution, or will they see the case differently, if the killer turns out to be middle-aged, white and female, rather than young, black and male?

you were comparing Atlantic City to Detriot is why I said there was a big difference besides California is living on & has been on Borrowed Money and 3 cities in California alone in 2012 declared bankruptcy so California dosent have a huge tax base to tax from but a huge debt base which more California city Bankruptcies are to come and California is another Pseudo Liberal Utopia getting ready to fail.

July 26, 2013

Abdulelah Haider Shaye "put in prison because he had the audacity to expose a U.S. cruise missile attack that killed three dozen women and children.”

At one point Shaye was slated for early release, but a phone call from Obama urged Yemeni officials to keep him behind bars.

Sherry West, Antonio Santiago: GBI finds traces of gunshot residue on Brunswick, Georgia parents

Over the phone, Sherry West told WJXT reporter Vic Micolucci that the residue found on her must have come from the struggle she says that happened with the teens charged in the murder: De'marquis Elkins and Dominique Lang.

She says she didn't know why the test would come back positive for her baby’s father, Louis Santiago, but insists he was not there.

By the way, West and Santiago are no longer together and WJXT couldn't reach him because he's in jail, being held without bond on charges of aggravated stalking related to family violence and violation of probation.

BLACK LEADERS BLAST WASHINGTON'S ATTACK ON TEXAS
'It is now up to Mr. Holder to put up or shut up'

The move came Thursday when the Department of Justice asked judges in San Antonio to order oversight of the state’s voting operations.

That demand from the DOJ came even though the Supreme Court released a decision that essentially canceled Washington oversight of a lot of state elections procedures and practices.

Specifically canceled was a requirement that various states obtain permission from the federal government before making any voting procedures changes.

But Holder said he would use another portion of the law to try to continue what he wanted to watch among the states.

GENEVA — A member of the notorious "Pink Panther" jewel thief gang escaped from a Swiss prison after accomplices rammed a gate and overpowered guards with bursts from their AK-47s, police said Friday.

Milan Poparic, 34, fled with fellow inmate Adrian Albrecht, 52, from the Orbe prison in the western canton (state) of Vaud late Thursday, according to a police statement.

He is the third member of the Pink Panthers to escape from a Swiss prison in as many months, according to Vaud police.

Poparic, a Bosnian national, had been serving a sentence of six years and eight months for robbing a jewelry store in the Swiss city of Neuchatel in 2009. Albrecht was serving a seven-year prison sentence for various crimes including robbery, arson and money laundering.

HOW JESSE JACKSON AGREES WITH ZIMMERMAN
Exclusive: John Rocker challenges black leader over his quote about footsteps on the street

There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start to think about robbery and then look around and see it’s somebody white and feel relieved.”

Ever encountered this quote?

Comes directly from the mouth of one of the “leaders” barking the loudest for the Department of Justice to open a civil right’s case against George Zimmerman and for the United Nations to step in and work to ensure justice for Trayvon is secured.

If, as Jackson claims,“blacks are under attack,” in America, it’s because they are being hunted and killed by other blacks, a fact that Helen Ubinas isn’t going to make in her article at the Philadelphia Daily News.

A national dialogue on race in America is needed, but the discussion needs to start with Jesse Jackson’s admission of what he fears most in the night walking behind him, said John Rocker

Flordia is alot nicer and the taxes are nothing like California which has a serve debt problem and I know people that moved to California thinking it was great and was only there for a short time and relocated to Florida and Florida has no income tax or the Taxes that California does.
