The answer/explaination was ridiculous. No one expects the press to report on EVERY murder but I sure as hell expect them to report on ones of this heinousness.
Where the hell did I defend these people?? I didn't say anything to defend these people at all and I don't appreciate you making some BS up and accusing me of that. All I was saying is that it doesn't even seem like the OP read the entire article. Get a grip......

A lot more crimes like these happen than you or others may realize. I read about a similar crime that happened in Miami a few years ago and nothing was reported about that anywhere outside of South Florida. Did you ever hear about this: http://www.miamibeach411.com/news/in...a-maria-angel/

So the Op and whoever else can go ahead and try to push some BS media bias theories but there are plenty of other similar cases that never get national media attention.

That crime that the 4 people commited was very sick, disturbed, and uncalled for and they do need to be gassed/ or put out of their misery. True justice would be to just inject the sadistic perps with something lethal. I would appreciate it if Scraper do provide us with more hate crimes that was free of agenda, spin, or whatever you want to call it. I too think something like this should have gotten more national coverage and don't know why it didn't.It would've been huge if White on black because Sharpton and Jackson are clowns who don't look at all angles (Duke case) and shouldn't be taken seriously, Alicia Keys would be a better voice of the Black community than those clowns

Thats the OPs whole point. If that was done by white people it would of been all over the news. Thanks for the link.

Once again, Scraper Enthusiast commits the crime of daring to call attention to the truth.

Shame on you, SE! LOL

But seriously...

Here is a good column to read on the subject. Yes, it is a bit "outdated" in terms of when it was originally published. But the basic facts remain solid.

FrontPage Magazine

Here is another one by Walter Williams. A black man (like Thomas Sowell) who has the guts to actually go up against the PC tyranny.

I don't know why the Christian-Newsom murders didn't get more national coverage. I live not far from liberal, racial-double-standard-setting New York City, and their local news broadcasts are full of stories of non-whites committing crimes against whites. In 2002, there was a case where a black man entered a bar in Manhattan with the sole motive of killing whites. He shot three people and sprayed a bunch of others with kerosene while threatening to set them on fire. He was charged with attempted murder as a hate crime and was sentenced to 240 years in prison in 2007. This got a good amount of coverage here. Then, of course, there was the similar Colin Ferguson case, which was majorly covered by both NYC and national media.

I get it you must be Al Sharpton trying to turn a non-racial situation into a racial situation, I think all those boys do(Sharpton/Jackson) is stir up racial tensions if anything.

Are you both serious? It's blatantly clear to me that all this thread is promoting is a negative image of the black race - the poster couldn't care less about black-on-black crime, but black-on-white crime gets his panties in a bunch. This isn't about the fact that two people were killed, but rather that it was two whites, and that they were killed by blacks. Had they been killed by whites, I'm sure this thread would not exist.

Am I justifying this horrible murder? Of course not. I believe all involved deserve to be punished, but out of justice, not racism.

And, for the record, I am not black.
