Politically incorrect

Do you have any idea how hard I had to look to find out that the three “boys” who killed a white Australian baseball player for the fun of it were black?

No mention of race on:

CBS: http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-baseball/23227500/bored-teenagers-murder-college-baseball-player-for-fun

ABC: http://abcnews.go.com/US/australian-baseball-player-chris-lane-gunned-alleged-oklahoma/story?id=20000982

The Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/oklahoma-police-say-australian-baseball-player-killed-on-street-because-teenagers-were-bored/2013/08/19/7aa85d40-091f-11e3-89fe-abb4a5067014_story.html

Or even the evil Fox network: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/08/20/police-say-teen-shot-australian-student-in-oklahoma-for-fun-it/

A “white hispanic” kills a black man in Florida and the press subjects us to a year of lectures about how racist white America still is.

Three black guys kill a white guy just because they are bored and feel like killing someone and there is no mention of their race on any major news outlet.

I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Al Sharpton to show up crying for justice or news commentators on CNN demanding a national conversation about black-on-white violence.

I believe deeply in a color-blind America. Unfortunately, the media is only interested in being blind to color when the person doing wrong is a color other than white.
