Attorney General Eric Holder, MSNBC’s Reverend Al Sharpton, NAACP’s Ben Jealous, Rainbow Coalition’s Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Mikhail Muhammad, The Black Panthers and even PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA are conspicuously unavailable for comment…
Why? Could it be that young 13 year old Mr. Coon might not look like “your son”? Does that ‘what-you-look-like’ consideration play the primary role in determining whether to transmit your opinion into the public forum?
If so, does not that very qualifier itself scream racism? Is the President really saying I will only be engaged if, and I will only be outraged if, the victim may look like me; Or as holder put it “my people”…?
Why ((crickets)) ? Where is Ed Schultz, Rachael Maddow, Chris Matthews, Anderson Cooper, John Daley, The Congressional Black Caucus or Jay Carney?
KANSAS CITY – Police are investigating a race hate attack after a 13-year-old boy was doused in gasoline and set on fire. The teenager, who suffered first degree burns to his face and hands, is white and his two attackers black.
His mother, Melissa Coon, said the attackers told her son ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’.
He noticed two older boys following him and as he arrived at his home the pair threw gas on him. ‘They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open,’ Mrs Coon told KMBC-TV.
‘[One of them] poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy‘.
Mrs Coon said her son was able to beat the flames out with his hands and shirt and was able to call 911 and his father. Police said the boy had been engulfed in a ‘large fireball’. He has lost his eye lashes, eyebrows and some skin on his face. (read more) Video Story HERE
