Do you do the same with women who say they have been sexually harassed and/or raped? Because there are some that cried wolf, do you immediately surmise that the woman is lying?
No, but many cases of sexual harassment are bogus, many women do it to be vindictive, I know of several cases personally. Same goes for racism and descrimination, but usually these complaints are because someone didn't get a promotion or a job. Both are very difficult to prove.

.....what benefit would it be for him to "play the race card on his way out"?
To try and justify his actions somewhat.

You have people like Glenn Beck telling his audience that Obama does not like white people and hence by implication that Obama will take from whites to give to blacks and minorities under the trojan horse of socialism.

Currently there is a serial killer in Flint Michigan who has stabbed to death 5 black men and have stabbed and critically injured 13 overall since May. Only one new agency reported his description....which was a muscular white guy.

Don't forget, he probably killed these guys because it was a reaction to how he was treated for years by black people, you know action=reaction.

Police: Gunman at beer warehouse targeted 'racist' managers

Omar Thornton's girlfriend, meanwhile, told The Associated Press that he had complained of racial harassment and had shared evidence of it with her: photos of racist bathroom graffiti and a surreptitiously monitored conversation allegedly involving company managers.

He went to the kitchen, took out his guns, walked out into the hall and began shooting "as soon as he got into the hallway," Davis said. All the weapons were registered, he said.

One day, she said, he called her from a bathroom stall, then held up his phone and she could hear a company official, apparently unaware Thornton was in a stall, tell someone else that the company was going to "get rid of this dumb n-----."

I bet if he called 911 and told the people he did what he did because he was a personal failure and mad at the world and envious of the managers and union reps at the compnay......you would have no problem with us focusing on that. I think most people only have a problem because he said he did it because of racism against him. The racism pill is a pill that whites don't like to swallow.
The issue of race in America is like a sore that cannot heal properly, if it is ever going to, because its kept covered up and air cannot get to it. America needs to take the bandage off and air out racism so that it can heal properly....if its going to. White folks are playing a lot of mental games Hell bent on denial and trying to conflat black reaction to white racism as being the moral equivalent of white racism.
It's because blacks have used this claim way to many times and now it's pretty much worn out and getting really hard to swallow. Black guy---"They're racest" white guy --" oh boy here we go again". See what I mean?

yeah and the whole im not racist, or ive know mr whitey for years and can never see him saying or doing anything like that it just isnt him
and or your just using the race card, people can get away with racism and have others co sign them and that'll be that when someones dead such as the suspect the company can make up all kinds of claims
