What hypocrites

By From page A5 | August 28, 2013

EDITOR:

Where is Sharpton, Jackson, Holder and Obama? If three white teens went joy riding and killed a black man jogging down the street all hell would break loose. Jackson and Sharpton would be leading marches; Holder would be demanding that justice be served and he’d have the DOJ and FBI looking for racial hatred and fueling the fire. Obama would make a speech about how racist our society is. The main stream media would be going crazy trying to outdo each other with profiles of the white thugs.

However, when two black teens and a white teen gun down a white man there isn’t even a peep from the so called black leaders in this country. Racism does exist in this country — it exists both ways but you won’t here that from these four. Sharpton and Jackson benefit from racial discord and they have no interest in solving the problem. Holder won’t dare open an investigation into this maybe being a hate crime and Obama won’t say that one of these thugs could have been my son. All four are big time hypocrites.
