Race-Baiting Media Frustrated – Mississippi Resident Otis Byrd Appears To Have Committed Suicide…

The race-baiting media was giddy yesterday at the thought a Mississippi man found hanged near his home might have been a racially motivated lynching.

Hours of punditry were quickly dispatched through the airwaves to advocate toward a possible narrative.

Alas, it appears no more than a simple, yet horrible, suicide.

LA TIMES – Preliminary results of an autopsy on the body of Otis Byrd, whose body was found hanging from a tree in rural Mississippi, strongly suggest the death was a suicide rather than foul play, sources said, hours before officials said that a formal determination of the cause of the death will be delayed until next week.

[…] law enforcement official told the Los Angeles Times that early results from the autopsy and tests were leading investigators to believe the death was a suicide.

“It looks like that,” said the official, who asked not to be identified, adding “that’s where they are headed,” to a finding of suicide. The official declined to give further details.

After the news conference, sources said that there were no signs of foul play and that suicide was the likely conclusion. (link)

CNN Haz a sad.

Not to worry, when it comes to racial grievance – facts never matter.

    Thanks for highlighting this. Erin Burnett (a real up and comer in the race baiting game) is about to do a segment on this. I’d be curious to see if she chooses to downplay or just not mention the suicide news. NBC Nightly News flatly refused to mention it and tried to make it seem as though something more sinister was going on.

      Why are two people that were standing in the same positions during a CNN story about Otis Byrd and kind of hiding as during the CNN interview with Dorian Johnson?
      Are they identified? Are the being paid to stand there during interviews? Will somebody please buy them some new clothes?

        I have my own name for the backdrop people. I call them the silent choir. Sometimes there are dozens of them, sometimes only a couple. POTUS employs them all the time.
        They are pathetic and annoying. Whenever I see some kind of speech or announcement with a silent choir the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

      The local townspeople are trying hard to push the racism narrative. A small group showed up at the presser today demanding answers to whether the “rumors” that he was shot in the head and had his hands tied were true. That was actually the only question the FBI man responded to with any detail- he quickly shut that down and said it was not true.

    I would not be surprised if the race baiting happens anyway.

      Look at how far P&C have taken the Kendrick Johnson matter…

      …accusing two children of murder. Never mind the fact that they had alibis and the death was ruled accidental.

      I wouldn’t be either. Guess they could try to spin it that the “systemic” racism in this evil country, and the terrible unfairness of “white privilege” led the poor guy to believe suicide was his best/ only option. Heck, if Sharpton or Crump could just manage to somehow squeeze a shakedown out of that scenario, they’d likely be off and running.

      (I’m half-surprised none of ’em have used this sad event to bring up how sometime in the 90’s, another Southern black man, James Bird, was tied onto the bumper of a truck by two white supremacists, and disgustingly dragged down a country road. That was soul-sickening…………and so, of course some Dems found it PERFECT to use/ exploit in a political commercial. Actually, maybe I shouldn’t even risk reminding them of it, considering how ginned-up they all are at this time).


  4. First, let me say that for the family of Otis Byrd, my condolences. Suicide generally indicates a prolonged Dark Night of the Soul (NPI) and suffering on the part of someone who sees this as their only option in the moment and a conviction that one is powerless to make whatever effort, even small, is necessary to continue. It is a horrible thing. Truly.

    OK, my turn. I can’t resist a response to the racist BGI that will never believe Otis Byrd committed suicide, and I have my own version thereto:

    Contrary to the most recent reports, the death of Otis Byrd was not a suicide. It was to have been the basis of an epic public relations campaign by the Black Grievance Industry, to show what appeared to be the Black Otis hanging from the old Hangin’ Oak. Unfortunately, someone dropped a pile of money on the ground and when the crew scrambled to grab what they could, a fight broke out. During the melee, someone kicked the chair out from under Otis and no one noticed it until it was too late for Byrd. Further actions were not taken to make the death appear to have been at the hand of local Law Enforcement.

    The principles in the production, who are unnamed to protect their privacy saw an opportunity to make and even greater wedge into the Black Lives Matter campaign by leaving poor Otis blowing in the wind. The Reverend Al Sharpton is now taking applications to move forward, fostering the impression that this is a new trend, and it is, in fact, whites and/or police lynching blacks across the nation. He tells us that of course, better controls are now in place and no black person will be injured during the filming of the pseudo-documentary on the life of the victim and the purity and lofty goals of the victimized. Activists are currently working on new memes to commemorate Byrd, and they strongly affirm any future deceased will be similary sainted so their names get carried down in history as well since they are building a database for ready availability. Assurances are being made in Sharpton’s news release that this and any further collateral damage will be remunerated via successful lawsuits against local law enforcement brought by Parks and Crump and influenced by the Department of Justice.

    So there you race baiters. Go stuff yourself. I’m so tired of this crap.


  5. lovemygirl says:

    When I read about it and the gambling was mentioned suicide was what popped into my head. How lynching pops in theirs is beyond me since that pretty much disappeared after the 50s.


  6. doodahdaze says:

    Oh No! Not that. CNN has to be sad to hear the news. They have had banners “Black Man Found Hanging From A Tree” for days. Race baiting much?


    • John Galt says:

      At one point in time does BGI turn on Holder?

      Trayvon Martin – DOJ investigation – no indictment
      Michael Brown – DOJ investigation – no indictment
      Eric Garner – DOJ investigation – no indictment
      Otis Byrd – DOJ investigation – no indictment
      Tony Robinson – DOJ investigation – pending


      • yakmaster2 says:

        A reasonable person might detect a pattern here, but then the key word is reasonable.


        • Matt Musson says:

          The pattern seems to be that the DOJ conducts an investigation so they can clamp down on the release of evidence supporting the police. After the riots and the protests – they eventually release the facts that clear the white people involved.


      • Kitty Smith says:

        Never. They’ve never turned on the demonrats who’ve been holding them back for decades.


      • PatrickSMcNally says:

        Politicos such as Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton will certainly not turn against Eric Holder or Barack Obama. What is happening instead is that a lot of crazy lunatics in the streets are acting like Islamic fighters armed by the CIA for a war in Afghanistan in the 1980s and then turning against their earlier backers.

        Many average thugs-posing-as-activists are swift enough to catch on that there is some incredible hypocrisy practiced by the black leadership. But they are too ideologically brainwashed to admit that the actions of George Zimmerman or Darren Wilson were justified self-defense. Hence they become more and more enraged at clowns like Sharpton, but without admitting just how fully they were conned.


  7. wanthetruth says:

    I don’t believe any lives matter to people ruthlessly pursuing an agenda. I wouldn’t rule out an eventual setup where they do the deed themselves to escalate tension / fed policing control.

    It doesn’t seem they have any conscience regarding damage or lives lost. Why would they care when they have no belief in God and thus no moral responsibility to anything but themselves and what they want?

      Sadly, that was my first thought as well.


    • Kitty Smith says:

      This is comical. This NAACP guy admits in so many words that they don’t care that Byrd is dead. Their only concern is that he wasn’t lynched by whitey:

      “Derrick Johnson, head of the state chapter of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People, said the group wanted to be certain the death was not racially motivated.

      “We want to make sure it was not a racial hate crime,” he said. “We cannot stand by in 2015 and watch a lynching, if in fact that’s what happened.”

      In other words, if Byrd committed suicide, adios, no problemo.

      Somebody should ask Derrick Johnson if perhaps Byrd’s motive for suicide might not be despondency over the fact that the first black prez is such an abysmal failure, or perhaps the reason is unrequited guilt for the murder of an innocent.


    • Truthfilter says:

      Yes, a set up—just to stir the s**t. It’s too perfect of a narrative. That was my first impression. Even IF it turns out to be a murder by a white person—the dumbest, most racist redneck in Mississippi would know better than to use that particular method.


  8. EdWatts says:

    “Lynching” is an interesting word; it used to mean “the illegal taking of a prisoner from official custody” but is now generally understood to be an illegal application of capital punishment. Those who were lynched (black and white) were men who had been accused of heinous/capital crimes and had either confessed or left so much evidence that guilt was not in question. The townspeople would then, usually with assistance from local law enforcement, take the “suspect” from the jail and effect quick and sure “justice” upon the perpetrator, saving the people’s time and money.

    Over the past century, “lynching” has come to mean the act of retribution, but, originally, it was the taking of the person from the legal system.

    Well when the cops were shot the same “Liberal slogan” went out – “it was racist whites or police looking for sympathy did it”.

    This too will become another “the white man did it” crime against a black man.


  10. ThankYou,Treepers says:

    “Long, long ago in a land far, far away…”

    So should start any narrative of 1950s Mississippi Jim Crow violence against blacks or 1960s Alabama retaliatory violence against civil rights activists in order to relate that history to the experience of the American audience living today.

    The overwhelming majority of us have lived our entire lives in places during times where the only race violence has been perpetrated by blacks, primarily to achieve criminal ends beyond the violence itself but also secondarily, during the 1960s and again this decade, as an expression of race motivated hate for whites where the violence itself is the end sought.

    The left and their media parrots have suspended themselves in a time warp so they can pretend none of us in America have experienced half a century of integrated daily living with Affirmative Action and the resulting lessons learned.

    Fifty years ago we were told “don’t be prejudice” meaning give blacks a chance to be judged on merit by interacting with them as opposed to shunning them due to stereotypes.

    Today we are told “don’t be racist” meaning don’t have negative judgments about blacks as a group even if based on openminded fair chance experience.

    Thus arises the saying posted in a comment to some blog somewhere “a man with an experience can’t be fooled by a man with an idea.”

    I have a newsflash for twittering Tracey (from top): No one murders a guy by hanging him from a tree with BEDSHEETS. A killer is not going to take the time or trouble to tie those sheets, but a suicidal person just might take their own bedsheets and do it in place of a rope. I’m guessing that would be the prison way.


  12. hitrestart1 says:

    Wonder how many whites will be attacked because “Justice for Otis” or some such nonsense.


  13. arkansasmimi says:

    According to the Mississippi Department of Corrections, Byrd spent a little over 25 years in prison for the murder of Lucille Trimm during a robbery in Claiborne County. He was convicted of capital murder on Feb. 8, 1980, and was paroled Nov. 2, 2006.

    Trim was the mother of Martha Rainville, the first woman in the history of the National Guard to serve as a state adjutant general when she became adjutant general in Vermont in 1997. Rainville lives in Virginia and is married to the Hon. Paul McHale, a former congressman from Pennsylvania and a former assistant secretary of Defense.


  14. Krazy Kat says:

    I imagine life on the outside can get pretty hard with a record like that.
    And what self respecting racist uses a bed sheet when everyone knows that a rope noose is the mascot of racist everywhere. I mean, even a drawing of a noose is grounds for expulsion from government “schools.”


    • partyzantski says:

      How are kids not getting thrown out for tying their shoelaces? That involves a turn of a small scale rope-like item, creating the symbolic bow of hatred and intolerance…. which also holds their shoes on their feet.


  15. Last seen alive at a casino and found dead in the woods about a half mile from home? Somebody lost what little they had.


  16. OpenTheDoor says:

    It appears Goldie Taylor has as much a grasp of the term lynching, as she has of the projectile capabilities of a .223 bullet.


  17. TJ A dersen says:

    We have to take this country back from the leftist white hating liberals and blacks. The anti white narrative has gone way too far. Whites are being killed by raging blacks and are not reported as hate crimes.


  18. cali says:

    It irks me to no end that always – one live appears to matter why the other one is almost forgotten.

    Yahoo this morning attempting to sound as though an investigation needs to proceed because it was ‘not’ a suicide.

    Yet – we have Jessica Chambers – who was not once deservingly mentioned on any of the news pages. Accompanying the article on Yahoo – I asked this questions precisely and posted a very short comment about Jessica and her barbaric murder.

    Guess what….Yahoo erased my comment as though it never existed. Repeatedly in past few days they have erased comments when they do not agree with the agenda as demanded.

    It irks me most because Jessica’s barbaric murder is as though it never happened.
