    SAD and TRUE STORY….

    You won’t recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old

    child who was shot at point blank range by two teens who were attempting to
    rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from
    Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death
    penalty … too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and
    defenseless.

    My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood,
    but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so
    much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

    I am one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but
    the media doesn’t care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President
    Obama has no children who could possibly look like me – so he doesn’t care
    and the media doesn’t care because my story is not interesting enough to
    bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.

    There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would
    be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand
    justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives
    of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and
    unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller -
    I no longer have my life.

    So while you are seeking justice for Trayvon, please remember to seek
    justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee
    shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you
    did for Trayvon.

    Good post. But too bad it’ll go over the heads of the race baiters.

    If you have a photo and a name with police records showing what happened I am sure more than one white advocacy (skinhead) group would put a significant price on their heads and mount a campaign.
    .
    On the other hand, if this was a shoot and run with no suspects, just what do you expect can possibly be done.
    .
    The evil of our world cannot be repaired, the evil in our yard MUST be dealt with.

    Read the news instead of comics all the time and you might learn something.

    Glad you agree that what happened to Trayvon Martin was an injustice.


    Meanwhile, this is what Snopes has to say about your spam-email:
    Mixture of truth and falsehoods


    “The comparisons in the example text between the killings of Trayvon Martin and Antonio West are an example of false equivalency, however, as the two cases are neary polar opposites.”

    Why are you comparing a hate crime with a robbery?

    “Where was the “hate crime?” Certainly not the incident in Sanford, FL.”
    -
    You want evidence of a “hate crime”?

    Although not considered to be racially motivated, how can something this evil not be considered a “hate crime”. Why did this case not receive at least as much mainstream media coverage as the Trayvon Martin case?

    Each year in America over 5000 black people are murdered by other black people. Bennett does not care.

    Trayvon got his justice when he was killed while committing a crime.

    Barry’s comments just empowered the thugs using race as an excuse to terrorize people and property in cities across America.

    Zimmerman was all about the blacks robbing so that was always on his mind. So much so he called in 16 times over it. Yes it was racial but the PTB worked to wash it out of the trial. They succeeded.

    Yep, it’s just exactly like a cab skipping you.

    I am certainly no legal expert, but it appears to me that

    If GZ did not ran down TM and cornered him…

    that the jury believed that at the moment of the shooting TM was the aggressor

    President Obama accurately stated what it is still like in many areas to be walking or driving while either black or brown in this country. Ask a 15th generation “American” of Mexican decent in Phoenix, or a black man in many big cities, or even small communities in America, especially “middle America”.


    I’m a white guy with black and brown friends over the years, who did indeed see prejudice. I also support equal opportunity, but have seen many “bad things” happen under a very badly managed “affirmative action” mentality.(Women, and racial groups where incompetence hasn’t been a barrier.) The point is, with true equality, well, we CAN do a lot better!


    As, again Zimmerman, some of the stories are really weird as his own BROTHER right after the story hit declared that at best, his brother George “didn’t like” (understatement) “black people”. HIs history of calls to police supports this, as all his calls were “suspicious types”, that weren’t HIS type!
