Apparently in 2007 in Knoxville,TN 21 year old, Channon Christian and boyfriend Christopher Newsom were raped and murdered. Do you remember this story? Did it make the mainstream media? Did Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson hold rallies for justice and outrage? No! Why? Because the victims are not black and the suspects were not white or Hispanic as in the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case in FL. It's not politically correct for the liberal media to get outraged by stories such as these because they are more common than white on black crimes. Instead the race baiters like to hype up white on black crimes as if they are happening more often, claiming they are racially motivated and hate crimes. However, what is it called when whites are victims to crimes by blacks? Nothing!! There is no uproar in the media, there are no protests for justice by blacks wanting justice for the white victims...perhaps it's time whites, who are most often victims of crimes by blacks, rise up and start protesting and demanding more attention to these crimes??

...I had thought someone said the murder, torture and rape of Channon&Christopher occured more recently...however, I didn't even hear about this case in the mainstream media like we are hearing about this Trayvon Martin shooting...where was the outrage& media attention in 2007?? Cases like this are happening every day around the US and you don't hear from any of these race baiters like Sharpton&Jesse Jackson.
It turns out there is more black on white crime than white/hispanic on black crimes.
According to the DOJ: Some 85 percent of interracial crime is typically black-on-white, according to conservative Justice Department statistics.[based on 1999 stats] I'm sure it's worse now...there was another more recent case of a an elderly couple, married 65 yrs who were killed by a black man in OK. There are numerous stories like this and you don't hear the same outrage...
And except for the local media in Oklahoma, no one has noticed.Do whites need to rise up since they are the ones who are most often victims of black on white crime and killed by blacks 85% of the time?? I'm not racist, but this whole Trayvon Martin thing is really overblown and inciting race wars in our country if it doesn't stop!
The bottom line is people need to treat all cases fairly, especially the media. Instead of reporting the race of the victims&suspects perhaps they should focus more on the crime&actual facts based on police reports and eye witnesses. The media is not suppose to be used as a judge and jury, it taints the entire case for both the victim and the suspects should it go to trial. The media in the Trayvon Martin shooting mislead the public by originally publishing a picture of Trayvon when he was at least five years younger and they continued to publish it for weeks, until conservative websites started exposing more recent pictures of Trayvon, you didn't see who the 6'3" football player Trayvon was. Instead we were shown a five year old image of a young 'innocent' boy...who could never have punched out a grown adult like George Zimmerman.
Since I began updating this story, more black on white crime has occurred as a result of the verdict in the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman trial. However, up to and before the verdict other incidents of black on white violence have been on the rise.
The jury found Zimmerman innocent and that he was left with no choice but to protect himself in self defense. Zimmerman happened to be a licensed gun owner with a concealed carry permit and found himself in a situation where he had no other choice but to use his weapon to defend his life and prevent further physical harm. Since he was acquitted earlier this week, race riots and calls for his public lynching have spawn across the country, resulting in several violent events including a local Los Angeles camera crew being injured and at least two reported incidents of retribution assaults against Whites and Hispanics by Blacks.
Instead of calling on these groups to remain peaceful, Holder, the head attorney and law enforcement official of the Department of Justice was on CSPAN today fanning the racism flames again as he spoke at a NAACP convention claiming we live in a racist world. Insinuating he has been pulled over at least two times, once as a federal prosecutor, because he believed it was racial profiling not because he was speeding! Instead of talking about the rule of law and respecting our judicial system Holder insisted he would investigate whether Zimmerman racially profiled Trayvon Martin and if he acted in hate. However, he continues to ignore the FBI investigation already conducted previously for the state which found Zimmerman to be just in his use of force to defend himself and that there was no racial profiling or spite intended when he shot Trayvon Martin.
It's a sad reflection on our justice system and our country when the head of the Department of Justice would rather incite violence and fan the flames of racism without any substantial evidence to base his claims on. If anyone should sue for civil rights violations it is George Zimmerman and I hope he does even if it takes him having to sue the Federal Government for violating his civil rights and defaming him as a law abiding citizen who only did what anyone in his situation would have done if they knew they had a way to defend and protect themselves from further bodily harm or death.
