An Australian Student Is Murdered By Three Black Teens - So Far No Outrage From Reverend Al Sharpton Or The NAACP...

Updated on August 22, 2013

An Australian Student Is Murdered By Three Black Teens –So Far No Outrage From Reverend Al Sharpton Or The NAACP…

On a typical Oklahoman day, Chris Lane, an Australian student, who came to the Sooner State on a Baseball scholarship, was jogging to his girlfriend’s home when he was allegedly, brutally gunned down by three Black teenagers who were apparently bored. Let us supposed that this Australian was murdered for the very fact that he was White, albeit, rank conjecture on my part… are we to expect White folks to be up in arms rightly so like how we were for Trayvon Martin or should we all - included Blacks - be irate and disgusted for the senseless murder of this student? Incidentally, where are the race hustlers … you know those whose moral appellations always precede their respective names like Reverend Al Sharpton or the Reverend Jesse Jackson….

Once again, I thank Christ Jesus for enabling me to look at the issues that affect us all through the objective prism of Christianity… whereby the ‘truth’ is not relative nor does it walk in lockstep with the malignant cancerous, biased dogma currently holding sway and known as Political Correctness. Now, If most of us, including the Media, were not looking at issues, especially those that are deemed racial, through this lying prism of Political Correctness, we would feel the same way about Mr. Chris Lane’s murder like we did for Trayvon Martin and the reportage would reflect this objective take from all of us… but the racial tit-for-tat scenario is how we have degenerated in America… almost akin to the Balkanization we have seen in places like Serbia and the like that have seen a more formal, racial strife/bloodletting in the form of ethnic cleansings.

Let me underscore how silly Political Correctness… concerning race has become… a few years ago, right here in New York, there were local news stations that deliberately would not report what was the race of those suspected of committing crimes in the Big Apple, especially if they were Minorities. It is a truism that I do not want all Australians or Whites to look at all Blacks, in light of the killing of the Aussie student, and judge us all collectively for the acts of those three Black teenagers who allegedly perpetrated the murder of Mr. Lane.

One of the questions that is nagging me or anyone who is objective is where are the celebrities and their vainglorious tweets for Mr. Lane’s murder like we saw for Trayvon Martin? In the same objective, Christian vein, If our so called Civil Rights leaders and organizations like the NAACP would just for once genuinely reach out to both sides on the racial divide… the chasm would not be so wide. It is true that I do not know if the Reverends have opined on the death of Mr. Lane or if any of the Black organizations have reached out to the victim’s family - but knowing the players… I doubt it.

The racial hustlers, who now make a mint out of racial issues have liberally borrowed from David Bowie’s ‘Cat People’s song… where the Thin-White-Duke (Bowie) once sang,… “Putting out fire with Gasoline…” and this is what they do and are doing by exasperating the racial issues, which, most times, are legitimate… but not for the actual victims or the surviving loved ones - but only for themselves. I supposed the reason why many of our Civil Rights leaders do not want to resolve the racial divide… and could start to by reaching out to Mr. Lane’s parents, is akin to the Roman/Jewish undertakers, doctors, local bakers, and magicians hating on the Christ on account of the miracles the Lord was doing because it was bad for those respective businesses.

Years ago, one of my brothers and I had this spirited debate about the Pharmaceutical companies not wanting to find a cure for the common Cold or Aids because it was not as lucrative to find cures… unlike it would be or has been to provide an assortment of costly medicines to palliate what ails us. As long as there is money to be had - and a lot of it - we are not going to hear the outrage we heard when Trayvon Martin was gunned down… perhaps, among the three Black teenagers, we could find one of them that has White blood in him so that we could justify not saying that the killing was Black on White... you know like how we conveniently forget that George Zimmerman was Hispanic - I say Hispanic knowing that he is only one half of that heritage... again, see and note the dishonesty because we see President Obama, whose mother was White and father was Black, but yet we designate President Obama as our first African American President.

To Mr. Lane’s parents, and, on behalf of these United States… our condolences… hoping that you find justice for your beloved son’s murder outside the prism of racial animus, even though that your son just might have been killed simply for being White. I hope that your son, Chris Lane, is resting in Christ Jesus’ Peace.

      I think you have brought up an issue that may be in the forefront of many minds. Do I want to see 'black gunmen', 'white gunmen' , Hispanic, Asian-gunmen any longer? No. I do understand,however, the rationale behind the descriptive for the sake of reporting facts for a news organization. But when can we stop, as a community, caring what color a person is? There is discrimination that comes in all forms, from all races, and from all religious denominations. Will I see in my lifetime, a country that has residents from all over the map enriched in different cultures, traditions, and beliefs that are embraced and respected? Probably not. But I can continue to pray....

      verily prime. This is a stellar article. Well done good and faithful servant. My heart and prayers go to the family of this young man. May God comfort them in this time of loss. I cannot imagine the pain.

      We know behind the crime is the enemy of our souls. He will raise a ruckus of evil so all sides come at each other rather than turn to the one true source for all the ills in the world, Jesus Christ.

      Verily I am honored to know you and commend you on standing for truth. Thank you. May God Bless all your works in His mighty name. Love ya, your sister in Christ. Skye

      They will only do so if it serves their respective interests, especially if the story gains more traction.

      Why aren't the two biggest racists alive, Sharpton and Jackson, chiming in on this case. Just my opinion, Greg

      No report I saw when I wrote it initially on CNN or the local news have said that this was gang related; there is a fifteen year old that later on was reported might have been vying to be in a gang, and anyway, I specifically used the term "rank conjecture' in my first paragraph.

      According to this report ( Chris Lane was killed as a part of a gang initiation which seemed to target both black and white. Anyway, no matter the reason, this gross disrespect for life is totally unacceptable. A young man preparing to be a productive season should be nurtured, not destroyed. My condolences to the family!

      Well said - justice for all and empathy no matter the race for those who are hurting.

      Such a tragic story. Yes, it is amazing how the media just glazes over race when it is covenient to their adjenda. I did not realize the gender of the teen-criminals until this morning. I originally thought they were white. So sad to see how little progress the far left has truly made. They want for us to keep checking our race boxes while the rest of us are happy to never be asked that question again.
