Letter: Shorty doesn't fit the narrative

If Shorty had a pistol and those two African Americans boys were in a Spokane morgue, we'd all be told how if Obama had sons, how much they would have looked just like them.

But Shorty wasn't armed and Shorty wasn't black. He was an 88-year-old WWII veteran, defenseless and now dead.

Obama, Holder and Sharpton are nowhere to be seen or heard from on this tragedy!

Article comment by: Those Involved Were Humans - Good Ones and Bad Ones

This letter speaks to the very heart of the race problem in America. Why is it necessary to speak about the race of those involved in any of these actions. It has not been proven that race had anything to do with Trevon Martin or Shorty. The letter writer should be a shamed of seeing everything in terms of race.

“What Anson is saying is that we should never criticize the "MARXIST ONE" because he apparently won two terms.”

Uhh, no, that is not what I am saying at all and I find it curious how you righties always seem to KNOW what another prison is thinking or what the might mean. I have no idea who the “MARXIST ONE” might be nor do I know what two terms he, or possibly she, may have won. I would appreciate a full explanation, but I fear you are incapable of doing much more than posting inaccurate information about what other people are “saying.”

“anson. what does obama being voted into office have to do with anything??”

I don’t know kid. Ask the original commenter who said, “Obama, …. (is) nowhere to be seen or heard from on this tragedy!”

anson. what does obama being voted into office have to do with anything?? hes in office and now being criticized for his actions and inactions just like you do bush. just because YOU don't want to admit your saviors wrong doing and bias, doesn't mean anything. don't get dizzy maneuvering your way around that bush.

"Yawn. Same trash, different day.

Hint - Obama won - twice - by wide margins - deal with it."


So it's ok in your little regressive world for anyonebutwhite to act as racist or bigoted or criminal as they wish but if someone of the pale persuasion says anything, then they are the wrong ones. The only trash, garbage here on this letter is your post once again pretending that people who do not agree with the President's actions are racist. You can post that trash all you want, it will not ever be true.

Do you add sugar to your Kool-Aid or do you just drink it straight?
Yes, yes, we know he won...doesn't mean he's right. He's just another puppet doing what he's told like a good little politician should. Towing the party line.

Especially after one of the suspects tweeting he hated white people. This is not a hate crime?

"Yawn. Same trash, different day."

So Shorty Belton being beaten to death was just "same trash" to you. Strange, you did not think that about "St. Skittles" being killed in self-defense by George Zimmermann.

Typical leftist.

LOL

Welcome to liberalism and how they think!
If this old guy somehow had turned the tables on these two thugs and killed them, there would be marches all over America with Sharpton and and his phony friends leading the charge with obama telling us how terrible white people are.
How our liberal neighbors can continue to follow these thugs is beyond me.
I don't know what the answer is other than vote the fools out of office that hold these rediculous opinions and get people in there that will put this country back on course.

I agree fully, sad but where are all the blacks and whites that condemned Zimmerman for what they called a senseless killing, where is the big media coverage, where is Obama saying that Shorty could have been his father, is there a more senseless killing than that of an 88 year old man by black teenagers. People in this country are a sad bunch of useless politically correct morons and the media's are nothing more than instigators. So ask yourself, who are the real racists in this country.
