No outrage from Jesse Jackson: Tweets that killing of Chris Lane ‘frowned upon’


Is this the best the co-CEO of the civil rights industrial complex can do?The killing is frowned upon?

Washington Post reports the Rev. Jesse Jackson said in a tweet Wednesday that the killing of an Australian baseball player, allegedly by three Oklahoma teenagers who were bored, is “senseless violence” and should be “frowned upon.”

Conservatives and others on social media immediately criticized the remark as tepid and insincere –: especially in light of Jackson’s and other black leaders’ strong reactions to the killing of Trayvon Martin, a young black man, by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman last year.

I think it’s obvious for America to see that black on white killing isn’t important for Jese Jackson or Al Sharpton because there’s no money in it for them.

Remember that next time they get on their soapbox and decry the killing of blacks by whites!Racial outrage only goes in one direction.: : :
