Speak for yourself! All you see in the news around Pittsburgh is Blacks murdering Blacks yet one Latino in Florida shoots a kid and now they want to take a stand? What about whats going on in you own neighborhoods? I don't get it.

And why not the big news story on this? Black guy shoots white baby in the face---- Friday, March 22, 2013 photo provided by the Glynn County Detention Center shows De'Marquise Elkins, 17, one of two teenagers arrested Friday and accused of fatally shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face and wounding his mother during their morning stroll in Brunswick, Ga. Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile, Police Chief Tobe Green said

Oh, yea... "Can't we all just get along?"- wasn't that what Mr. Rodney King said following his beating trial's aftermath twenty some years ago?

Well, at least you changed your name so it's not one that a black man invented to make fun of white supremacists. What a dumbass. You're an embarassment to white people.

Ralph just in case people can't understand....

You also wont hear this name mentioned by Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton...

You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot at point blank range by two teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless.

My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

I am one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media doesn't care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President Obama has no children who could possibly look like me - so he doesn't care and the media doesn't care because my story is not interesting enough to bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.

There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.

So while you are seeking justice for Trayvon, please remember to seek justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

You can take the Negro out of Africa but you can't take Africa out of the Negro even though their ancestors left Africa 3 or 4 centuries ago or one or two millennia ago.
