TOM LYONS HERLAD TRIBUNE....White people outraged by racism only when it comes from non-white people frequently irritate me.Sure, hostile racism is ugly no matter who expresses it. We should not be too tolerant of it even when it is someone's reaction to years of being victimized by racism themselves. And there are black racists who are as hopeless as any white-robed KKK member.
But some white people not wearing robes and who claim not to be racist seem to look for any excuse to express stupid bigotry, and to pass it off as intolerance for racism and double standards. Take the woman who left me a voicemail on Friday. "Don't use my name," she said, because "I have some black friends who might be offended." Ya think?
"I am quite offended over all the fuss being shown about Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., being killed by a white man," she said, because "two British tourists were killed in our area, in Newtown, by a black man and nothing's being said (HATE CRIME). It would seem it's only a hate crime if a white person kills a black person, but not if a black person kills a white person."
The Newtown case could hardly be more different in that regard. Yes, the killer was black and the victims white. Hate crime? Maybe so. But prosecutors had no need to charge that Shawn Tyson, during a robbery-turned-murder, was also being a racist. MORE FROM THIS SOURCE CLICK HERE.
Get real Mr Lyons, have you ever actually driven through Newtown, have you ever stopped to ask for directions in Newtown, at night. Have you ever just sat in your car on any of the public streets in Newtown for any period of time, day or night, try it some time, I do it all the time it and "it ain't pretty".
Two British tourists holidaying in Florida begged for their lives with their trousers pulled down before they were mercilessly shot dead by Shawn Tyson.
Black thug Shawn Tyson targeted British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris because they were white 'Crackers" staggering through his hood, they didn't belong. Shawn Tyson humiliated James Cooper and James Kouzaris by making them pull down their pants before he shot them numerous times with his .22 caliber S/W magnum revolver. What if George Zimmerman had made Trayvon Martin pull down his pants before he was shot, whoa HATE CRIME.
Newtown needs a curfew to keep murderous teenage thugs like Shawn Tyson and his gang member pals off the street and “Stop and Search” Law to take away their guns “No Guns For Felons”. Shawn Tyson may be gone for life but his pals ain’t, what better example is there of the damage one thug like Shawn Tyson can do to a community and the friends and parents of murdered James Kouzaris and James Cooper who were Gunned down in the Ghetto of Newtown. There are a lot more “Shawn Tysons” out there in Newtown.
The British media has ripped Pres. Barack Obama “a new one” for ignoring letters from the parents of the two “white” British tourists, James Kouzaris and James Cooper, murdered execution style by 16 year old black thug Shawn Tyson in the Newtown ghetto of Sarasota Fl. On the other hand, it’s OK for Obama to take sides in the Trayvon Martin -George Zimmerman case were a 17 year old black youth was killed in a scuffle with a armed ”white” neighborhood watch captain.
Obama even went as far as to say that Trayvon Martin could have been his son, without having all the facts in the case which now indicates that Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman who acted in self defense.
Paul Davies, a friend of MURDERED James Cooper and James Kouzaris, read a statement on behalf of their families after Shawn Tyson had been sentenced in Sarasota. It said: “We would like to publicly express our dissatisfaction at the lack of any public or private message of support or condolence from any American governing body (Sarasota) or, indeed, President Obama himself.
James’s dad, Pete Kouzaris, has written to Mr Obama on three separate occasions and is yet to receive the courtesy of a reply. “It would perhaps appear that Mr Obama sees no political value in facilitating such a request, or that the lives of two British tourists are not worthy of ten minutes of his time.”
Racism or Realism to point out Shawn Tyson's motive?
