Not a Hate Crime

There’s talk of charging the three animals who hunted down and shot a white kid in Oklahoma with a hate crime. Obviously it is coming from whites tired of hearing blacks whine about fake hate crimes like Trayvon Martin. It is the good for the goose/good for the gander tactic. I’m sympathetic. I’m tired of hearing rich black people like Obumbles and Oprah piss and moan about racism. Frankly, I’m tired of race as a subject entirely. The magical thinking is just too much. As long as we keep pretending it is still 1955 in the South, we will never have a meaningful conversation about race. In this case, the animals did not kill the kid because he was white. They killed because they are black. This demographic constitutes 1% of the population and commits 27% of the murders.
