This has got to stop
The story below surely shows once and for all how disastrous is the race rhetoric of Democrats and black race hustlers like Sharpton and Obama. The rhetoric has created a great upsurge of hate among blacks towards whites -- by telling blacks that every bad thing any black suffers is the result of white racism.
So whites as a class are in danger, regardless of anything they may have done as individuals. We are constantly told that all Muslims are not to blame for the actions of a Muslim minority but blacks have absorbed the opposite lesson about whites.
But I don't suppose that the Left will readily let go of all that delicious hate. It may need blacks to kill a few of the Leftist elite to get some caution out of them
Mr Obama could help by announcing emphatically that black disadvantage is NOT due to white racism. He could also point out that black deaths at the hands of whites are a rarity compared with the other way around. But he won't. To renounce the white racism story would go against one of his own basic tenets.
So what is he doing instead? Blaming guns: As brainless and as irresponsible as ever.
A man who was fired from his job as a television reporter two years ago took revenge against the small-town Virginia news station by executing two of his former coworkers on live television, and then posting disturbing first-person video of the attack on social media.
Viewers of WDBJ, a CBS affiliate in Moneta, Virginia, watched in horror this morning as Vester Lee Flanagan II, 41, shot dead 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, on live TV as the two were filming a light-hearted segment at 6:45am.
After carrying out the shocking on-air execution, Ward fled and posted video of the attack on social media while also writing about his grudges against the two young journalists in a Twitter rant.
He also faxed a 23-page manifesto-cum-suicide note to a national news station outlining his motives for the attack, saying he bought the handgun he used following the Charleston Church killings, adding: 'my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them'.
Five hours later, police cornered Flanagan a three hours drive northeast in Fauquier County, Virginia where he shot himself in an attempt to commit suicide. Flanagan initially survived the gunshot wound, but died not long after at approximately 1:30pm
