Teens set kid on fire for being 'white boy'
NYdailynews ^ | Sunday, March 04, 2012

Posted on 03/22/2012 6:41:01 AM PDT by RC one

A 13-year-old boy who police say was doused with gasoline and lit on fire last week while walking home from school is recovering from first-degree burns to his face and head.

The boy was just two blocks from his home in Kansas City Tuesday when two teenagers began to follow him and then attacked him, his mother, Melissa Coon, said.

Police have described the suspects as black 16-year-olds, while the victim is white.

"We were told it's a hate crime," Coon told KTLA.

How can it be a hate crime if the victim is white? Only white people can be racist! Diversity scholars have told me so!

The poverty pimp “reverend” Al would never call out his own peeps for doing something wrong

I doubt he even sees it as wrong

and he speaks for all black people, right?

is recovering from first-degree burns to his face and head.

First-degree burns means surface redness, a mild sunburn. Either this is an error in the article, or those were some totally incompetent thugs.

Unfortunate family name for the victim. Maybe if they had called him by his last name it would be a hate crime...

Good timing on this. Sure seems like a race war is being fomented by the media and some ground crews.

you read it here first.

Combination of a smart kid and incompetent thugs. Kid was able to lift his shirt and smother the flames quick enough to prevent any serious damage.

Now, back in the olden days if this happened, a certain part of the city would (***comment removed before the mods see it***), but then it would be safe to walk the city streets for many years.

I read that story yesterday. It was FReeped.

And while a Google search for Trayvon Martin results in 609 MILLION results, where do we see the national outrage over the black on white crimes like the story in Tulsa or this story about a kid set on fire?

It was attempted first degree murder - they were carrying gasoline because they planned to set someone on fire - an adult crime. Granted, the thugs were incompetent would be killers, but it's still attempted murder. The only appropriate punishment is life with no possibility of parole. Why would anyone care whether it was a "hate crime" too? It's a crime that requires permanently giving up on the criminals for the safety of decent members of society. Whether they were also committing a "hate crime", jay walking, or violating the Clean Air Act is totally irrelevant.

We’ll probably never hear about the final disposition of this case but you know we’ll be hearing about George Zimmerman’s final disposition. They gotta make a point, that’s what lynchings are all about ya know.

Horrible. But here’s an even MORE horrible black on white crime:

While the Zimmerman ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by ‘African Americans’ in Oklahoma just the other day?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten, his jaw broken, shot in the face with a BB gun and now barely clings to life.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was raped and beaten to death.

.

There’s a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage

Where is the outrage?

That's easy. There is no outrage because, by definition, slaves' descendants are not racists; they do not act out of racism. They are victims acting no differently than you and I would if we found ourselves stuck in their situation. I'm pretty sure that's how the Left sees it, anyway.
