Murder in Black and White
Have you heard about this horrendous assault, rape and murder case? If not, no wonder -- a search of this story returns no national coverage from any print or TV media source.
Last month, a young black male invaded the Tulsa OK home of Bob and Nancy Strait (90 and 85 years old respectively). The Straits marriage of 65 years came to an end after Tyrone Woodfork (as charged) beat the elderly couple and then raped Mrs. Strait. She died of her injuries while Mr. Strait, a WWII Veteran with the 101st Airborne, was left for dead but later found by a family member. Mr. Stait is slowly recovering from his near-fatal injuries.
Unlike the Zimmerman/Martin case in Florida, the national news media has blacked out coverage of the Strait assault -- and not a word from Barack Hussein Obama, who might also claim "If I had a son he would look like [Tyrone]," as he said of Trayvon Martin.
Meanwhile, all the race bait hustlers are having a field day over Zimmerman/Martin. "Reverend" Al Sharpton claims that the death of Trayvon Martin is tantamount to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ: "Inequities in the criminal justice system go back to the time of Jesus, and protests stemming from the Trayvon Martin case were intended to right some of those wrongs. We believe in Jesus, they crucified him and never had a charge. They never charged, there wasn't no crime on his indictment. So we've got to deal with the inequities of the criminal justice system. The fact that we (black people) are overly-incarcerated, the fact that we go to court and are treated differently, and the fact that when we're victimized there is not the same response. That's what Trayvon was about."
