The longer Dumbama is in office, the more common these black-on-white occurrences happen. Thanks to him, racism is at it's worst right now, since the days when I lived in George Wallace's Alabama.

"Why is the news media not speaking up more about this to the president. I think the news media is afraid, that they might insult the president.

That's racial imbalance in this country, there are three examples." - Al Mills

Barack Obama won the Presidential Election in 2008...and, was re-elected in 2012.

Get over it.

The media and race hustlers have always played favor to white on black crime over the reverse.

The FBI Uniform Crime Report says that an inter-racial murder is 400% more likely to be black on white than white on black.

Of course, that pales in comparison to black on black murder.

But much of the media, race hustlers and racist liberals (like Sham) only see white on black racism.

In fact, some liberals have actually argued that black citizens cannot be racist because they have no power.

It clearly illustrates how liberals hope to twist reality for their own perverted purposes.

It's not even worth commenting on this letter because Shaman's racist remarks will just ruin my beautiful Sunday. Enjoy your day everyone!

Crime isn’t an issue of race, it’s an issue of lack of respect for the rights of others. Racism only clouds the real problems of society.

"A lot of people don't want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama," - Ed Asner, in an interview as to why the lack of an anti-war movement from Hollywood.

The answer, Mr. Mills, is very simple. Money. There is no money or power to be gained by the crew you mentioned and others like them by pointing out violence by other races toward other races. The only way they stay relevant and "employed" is by ginning up the race war between blacks and whites. It is sad that the very ones who purport to "care" are the very ones who hold back progress. And the media laps it up.

A few other cases come to mind, recently an 88 year old WWII vet, "Shorty", was beaten to death by young black men, an 82 year old white woman was beaten and robbed by a young black man as she left church in Pittsburgh, and the shooting death of the Australian student come to mind.

In each case, had the races been reversed, there would have been wall to wall coverage on TV, and Sharpton, Jackson, and Farrakhan would have been screaming their heads off.

Radioactive, like Shaman and Reeder, you paint everyone with a broad brush and personally I take offense to it. I spent many years in the service and we were all the color green. We had to depend on each other regardless of race. It's people with your attitude that are setting race relations back decades.

Actually all were covered. You would have to channel jump between Fox, MSNBC and CNN to know that. I watch all three to try and get various perspectives. Usually the heavy hitters are on at opposite times. I know Fox claimed repeatedly that no one else covered this. That was simply untrue. Hannity was the biggest pusher of this fallacy. I watch him for laughs. Martin is a poor example. The original "Stand Your Ground" assertion which devolved to self-defense was the driver for coverage. If a black neighborhood watch guy killed a white unarmed teenager the coverage would also have existed. The second driver was the ongoing gun debate. Sometimes we assume answers are superficial when we should look to the underlines.

No, me thinks you are totally blinded by party loyalty and anyone that disagrees with this black president is labeled a racist because you have no other good argument to dispute the facts. Sorry, I for one will not let your race baiting stop me from questioning my government.

Sure I did what? Live in Alabama? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.......is that the best you can do Sham?

Here is something I read today that fits you to a "T."

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid, or a liberal!

Tip to my fellow Conservatives: next time someone calls you a racist, say "prove it" and listen to the crickets while they think.

This president more than any other has the platform to address racism and does not use it except to weigh in on the Trayvon Martin case when he shouldnt.He is no better than Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. What a crappy President! We deserve better leadership then this! Obama should go seek out his first job , oh yeah, he never had one! What a travesty. Keep your eye on the Chinese and the Russians, lets see how he handles this mess. He has made us the laughing stock of the world! We have no respect.

@ Jerry, no. I am just tired of it being thrown out there every time someone disagrees with President Obama. I think the comment by Ed Asner on why many of the Hollywood anti-war crowd is silent tells a lot about the liberal mindset.

@ Buff, where you been man? Tough Mudder was a blast. Had the time of my life.
