This will be short. In case you haven’t heard, Australian college student Christopher Lane, 22, was shot in the back as he jogged down a road in the middle of the afternoon last Friday in Duncan, Okla. He died at the scene.
The perpetrators, two black and one white teenager, have been arrested and are facing first degree murder charges.

When they were arrested 16-year-old Chancey Allen Luna and 15-year-old James Francis Edwards Jr. (both black) allegedly told police they shot Lane ‘because they were bored.’ Michael Jones, 17, (white) who allegedly drove the vehicle carrying Luna and Edwards was charged with accessory to murder after the fact. Jones identified Luna as the shooter.
It is interesting how quickly the media and the race hustlers have decided this shooting of a white man by two black teenagers was not racially motivated.
So far our president, himself half black and half white, has not spoken out about the crime. He hasn’t said, for example, that if he had a son he would look like Lane. Why not? Isn’t Obama half white? Yet he did say that about Trayvon Martin
Oh, I forgot. The only kind of racism or hate crimes that exist in America today are the kinds in which blacks are murdered by whites, not the other way around.
What about it Al Sharpton? Where is your outrage? What about you Jesse Jackson? Oh wait a minute, Jesse Jackson did issue a statement in which he said such violence is ‘frowned upon’ in America.
‘Frowned upon?’ Really? Why not condemn these young thugs for what they did? They have already admitted they shot Lane. Of course he won’t do that. After all, they are the wrong, or should I say, right race.
And what about you Mr. President. You had no compunction about speaking out before the Zimmerman trial in what was a blatant attempt to portray Martin as an innocent victim of racial violence. Will you not do the same in this case?
I am not holding my breath.
And what about Oprah, who has equated Trayvon Martin’s death with that of Emmett Till, the 14-year-old African-American boy who was tortured and murdered in Mississippi in 1955 in what was obviously a racially motivated hate crime.

As Oprah well knows, race was never the issue in the Zimmerman trial, and race was never presented by the prosecution as a motive, yet the race hustlers still want us to believe the crime was somehow racially motivated.
With what crime will Oprah equate this senseless murder of a young white Australian student in Oklahoma on a college baseball scholarship?
Think of the cruel irony here. An innocent Australian comes to America to play baseball, our national pastime, and winds up murdered by three kids who should have been playing baseball rather than looking for someone to kill because they were ‘bored.’
Naturally, the knee-jerk reaction of some in the media, such as oily and captious British pseudo-journalist Piers Morgan, is to call for the banning of all guns in America–the Second Amendment be damned.
In Australia, where just about all guns are banned, former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer, a noted advocate of gun control, is telling people to stay away from America.
‘Tourists thinking of going to the USA should think twice,’ Fischer said Monday.
Of course they should. Of the 1.1 million Australian tourists who visited the U.S. in 2012 none was killed. I’d say the U.S. is a pretty dangerous destination for Aussies.
