The Trayvon Martin case was a terrible tragedy. Any time a teen dies from drugs or violence it is tragic. The hue and cry from Jackson, Sharpton and others could be heard for weeks. Even Obama played the race card and stirred the pot of dissension.

A few weeks ago, a white 13-year-old was savagely beaten on a school bus by three older blacks because he ratted them out when they tried to sell him drugs. His arm was broken, eyes blacked, kicked and battered while the bus driver sat and yelled for them to stop. Where is the outrage over this? Obama has been quiet, also Jackson and Sharpton.

Earlier this week a young Australian ballplayer was shot in the back by two black teens and their white accomplice. They were bored and decided to go kill someone. Again, where is the outrage from Obama, Jackson and Sharpton for this senseless killing? Has Obama even contacted the parents of this young man? Jackson issued a very mild statement about stopping violence.

And just the other night, an 88-year-old veteran was beaten to death by blacks. Where is the outrage for these senseless acts? Where are the protests, etc.?

Obama, Sharpton and Jackson are nothing more than racist hypocrites. This horrible violence, regardless of race, needs to be addressed equally and fairly and punished.
