If you want to take something from all of this...learn love, forgiveness, and hope to be there for anyone that needs your help.
Every time we express hate or pass out blame, we perpetuate these situations. It's a cycle society will not break until we face our own fears. Take a step back and think of the people you cherish in your life...
What American's need more of these days is wisdom.
Your a complete idiot. Forgive and love these inhuman racist monsters? Are you insane?? Black on white violence is covered up by the elite politically correct media. Justice Department stats say over 90% of interracial violence is black on white, and blacks are only 12% of the population. Wake up you politically correct fool! Other posters said it was only reported because the victims were whit! It was NOT reported ANYWHERE except on the back page of tiny local papers! If it was white on black every major paper and TV news would have it on daily for 6 months! American blacks are the most racist people on the face of the earth.

But this was, in fact, blacks committing a brutal crime against whites. If whites had done it, it would be national news. So there is relevancy to the racial angle. It's not a "color doesn't matter" situation.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE I AM JUST NOW LEARNING ABOUT THIS CRIME. WHY HASN'T IT BEEN ON THE NEWS? LIVED IN KNOXVILLE FOR 14 YEARS AND NOW I AM IN MEMPHIS. MY MOUTH DROPPED WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THIS TONIGHT ON FOX NEWS 4-15-07

THESE PIECES OF SHIT SHOULD ABSOLUTELY BE PUT TO DEATH, NOT TODAY, OR YESTERDAY, BUT THE DAY BEFORE. WHAT THE HELL IS THIS-

THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY A HATE CRIME AND YES IT IS ABSOLUTELY ABOUT THE RACE. THIS WAS ABOUT RACE PERIOD.

WE DO NOT NEED TO WASTE MONEY ON THEM.

IF THIS WAS MY SON OR DAUGHTER THERE WOULD BE HELL TO PAY ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

"White people are targeted? Hated? That's funny. The last time I checked, it was white people who held Blacks captive and treated them as though they were no better than dogs for 439 years. The last time I checked, it was Black people who had the crosses burnt in their yards, beaten and flogged just for existing, and lynched from trees. So the media didn't make a big deal out of this crime. Who cares? Black women have been, and still are, raped mercilessly by hateful white men every single day. There are countless unreported, undocumented and otherwise overlooked rapes of this nature. It's funny that you're whining and complaining about whites being targeted and hated. You really don't know a thing about hate at all. Yes, it was an atrocity that was committed here, but to say that whites are scapegoats simply because the media didn't attack this case is just angry, bigoted ranting. Get over it."
Nice try, "Cheyenne" but you're the one who is laughable. Don't give me the sob story about blacks being victimized by whites for 439 years. Gee, does anyone here know any blacks that are 439 years old??? I thought so. Slavery and segregation were in past eras and have NOTHING to do with blacks today, so you get over it "Cheyenne" and stop whining. TODAY ,blacks are coddled today by whites who have NOTHING to feel guilty about. We are talking about TODAY and TODAY black violence against whites is rampant. Rape of black women by white men is almost very rare but the reverse is common. The news media covers this up. NO, "Cheyenne" whites will not get over it, a backlash is growing. Whites are getting fed up of spoiled blacks and mexicans and every other coddled minority. Keep pushing and you'll push too far and it won't be pretty toots.

I don't understand how the Duke Lacrosse Rape case made far bigger headlines than the Christian and Newsom story. The White guys had evidence they were innocent from the start, but were defamed in the media anyway! Here, a White couple is dead, and the media doesn't even care!! This is ridiculous. The media obviously has a racial biase.

Hey Jim Jones you are evidently a black NAACP idiot.
Karl is right in that the media only sensationalizes killings when they are whites killing blacks Then it is racism. Never have I seen a black killing a WHITE called a racist killing. Seems blacks are never racist. Recently on a Detroit radio talk show a caller said that whites should all be dumped in the ocean and eaten by the whales. The host (black) chuckled and then hung up on the caller. Thank GOD there are some rational thinking blacks in our country and you are not one of them. Go see your proctologist and have your brain put back where it belongs.

Another black nut

Between 1964 and 1994, more than 45,000 people were killed in interracial murders in the U.S.,

Your race has killed more whites in 30 years than blacks tramatized in, as you say, 439 years. Aren't you satisfied yet? Remember it was your race that gathered up the blacks in Africa and sold them into
slavery. Your race has as much responsibility for slavery as the white traders. It's time for blacks to also accept some accountability. Blacks should get the chip off their shoulder and we would all be better off. Until that happens it will be same old same old. You are right in that white women love blacks but that is their individual problem. When they get their ass kicked by their bltkack boy friends then they come crying to their family. Bwa, ha, ha, ha.

Why isn't this a hate crime? Can it only be deemed a hate crime if it isn't against whites. This was a hate crime. Pull your head out of your ass.
Allison wrote:
Why does anyone feel that this was a hate crime? This was simply a crime of opportunity. If a black couple, an Asian couple, or a plaid couple have run into these animals, they would have met the same fate. To drag race into this issue is to belittle the horrible deaths of these two young people. I had two friends who died in 1997 in a scenario almost identical to this one. A carjacking ended in rape and murder. Their killers were given the death penalty, but the good former governor of Illinois - George Ryan - said that it was unfair and commuted the sentences of my friends killers to life in prison. My friends were black and their killers were black, but my friends just had the misfortune of stopping at the wrong gas station.

these monsters are being called animals. they are sub-human. and should be treated as such. after being convicted, these neandethals should never have contact with another human being ever, not even in prison. i'm sure that the no contact order could be worked out in prison. perhaps this would eventually drive them out of their minds. as i'm sure is what happened to the couple. the death penalty is too easy and far too lenient.

THAT is a classic reaction. Blacks don't give a hoot about this crime. To them it is just some sort of "pay-back" for those TERRIBLE days of "Slavery".********* The only thing more effective than Communist media brainwashing is Communist history revision. HERE IS ANOTHER NEWSFLASH. White people were no more violent then than they are now. And as for lynching???? Blacks committed about as many crimes then as they do now. ONLY DIFFERENCE? Whites remembered how to punish crime effectively. You hang the murderer a week after they are convicted. As for black women being raped? PUHLEEEEEEZZZ !!! White men raping Black women? More common the case is today that black women pursue white men so they can have some hope of a "good haired" and "pretty eyed" baby! The whole slavery rape thing is another bogus white guilt myth. Read some real history. Just because you watched MISSISSIPPI BURNING does not mean you are a historian.
^^^^^^^^^^
AND weak white sheep? HAHAHAAHHA!!!!!! Try that mess in the South and 9 times out of 10 you will get a .40 cal. bullet in your black A$$ for your trouble and then the Sheriff will lock you up after you are caught.
++++++++++

Anybody who says that this case is not about RACE is either a complete FOOL or either a PURPOSEFUL LIAR.

Hey you freaking idiot. I guess you don't know history do you. Blacks enslaved Jews in biblical times for 400 years. They raped the women, smashed the babies heads with stones and fed them to alligators. Do you hear negroes appologizing for that? Of course not. Did you not know that blacks were sold to the white Americans by their own race? Did you know that there is black on black slavery in Africa? Study before you open your mouth and spew garbage!

Hey Whitey, yeah I'm talking to you. Stand up for yourselves. Don't think for once that negroes don't stand up for one another. What is our problem? We too good to actually do something like protest and boycott and harrass people into apologizies like Sharpton and Jackson.

Makes me ashamed to be white. I say we stand up and screw this liberal fascists media. Make our voices heard. You sit in silence and you get what you deserve! And you have no right to complain, PERIOD!!

Greetings,

For the last few days, I have been sending this letter out to all major news corporations and online newspapers. Sometimes it was deleted from post, and at other times, it was ignored. Hopefully with the article that you wrote, you will be able to send this out so that this case can get some recognition.

Thank you for your time.
__________

Hello,

The reason why I am writing this letter is to discuss an unjust in the media world.
Here is the story:

This past Monday, Eliott from "Eliott In The Morning," based out of Washington, DC. spoke about a story out of Knoxville, TN. When he read the story, I was so shocked and appalled at the severity of the crime. The link to the story is posted below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channon_Christia...

(side note, there was massive mutilations involving the 2 victims, which is not stated in the wikipedia article)

After reading this, you can see my concern. After doing some research and finding out as much info as I could, I was horrified that something like this could have happened and yet it has only been covered locally.

Now, I am mixed black male and I am by no way racist nor biased, because the public should know what happens in the public. But the problem is, why is it that whenever a Caucasian person commits a crime against a particular race, especially black, that it takes no more than a few hours to have it circulate the world if it is a major issue. When it comes to Caucasians as victims, you don't necessarily hear anything about it, especially if the crime is as severe as this one.
Now, why is it, that the USA Today, can put the faces of black African Americans on the FRONT page to tell about all kinds of crimes, but something as severe as this one, it is kept under wraps.
The worst part about this story was told today on his show. Now, this is the most appalling thing i have heard and it goes as follows:

http://www.nowpublic.com/knox_blacks_celebrat...

So, in lieu of the vigil for the 2 victims, a certain group of African Americans are constructing this "celebration."
Now you might be wondering why I am telling you all this, but it is NOT to bring out the worst in people, but to show how the media, race, and violence of this nature should be addressed. Furthermore, I am ASHAMED of being black to think that a group of people would actually celebrate a death like this because they feel they are not privileged. I know that the KKK would celebrate or whatever, but think about it. It all boils down to this group vs. this group. And it is sick.
I'd like for you to please voice the outrage in regards to this story and please have your listeners explain to me as to why things like this get swept under the rug. It was mentioned on Court TVs website, but nothing else.

For the last portion of this email, I would like to say:

"Why is it that when it comes to lesser crimes, the media will portray African Americans in the broad spectrum of light, but when it comes to something as serious like this, why keep it under wraps."
BTW, the Washington Post has stated that they couldn't send an investigator reporter to the area to inquire about the story, because "they didn't have anyone down there." You would think that the Washington Post would have had more sense than to say something like that. Am I right?

In closing, I just want to say, thank you for all that you bring to the community and would to tip my hat off to you all and let you know that even if you don't put this on the air, I know that at least you hear from a good fan of your show and that is all that matters.
Thank you.
