IS IT JUST ME?

or did I miss the tagline to this news story? All the persons killed by Amy Bishop at University of Alabama were people of color? Grant it I have been snowed in, and shoveling for about a week, but I have not heard reference to this on a single news story. Somebody call Big Al.

    So glad you posted this, I did not know she killed only people of color! Very very telling. I already knew it was a European American when they didn’t post the picture right away but I haven’t heard anything on the news about the victims!

    Thank you for this information of which I was unaware. We need more Black media to make our people more cognizant of what’s happening.

    Leave Big Al out of this. The news had said UA-Huntsville the entire time. It’s at the other end of the state, entirely different town, entirely different mindset. Big Al has plenty of troubles of his own in Tuscaloosa. Huntsville is high-tech (more Ph.D.’s per capita than any other place in the world, 9.6% of the population is an engineer) and very much a New South kind of town. InterRace magazine named its sister city (Madison, directly beside it to the west) as the best place in America for interracial couples. The town is quite conservative politically due to the military presence there. It’s an interesting mix of people — diversity coupled with a conservative mindset. Such a place shouldn’t exist according to liberals, yet it does. Hopefully Les Philip will be its next congressional rep. Its current rep is the confused Parker Griffith who just switched from Democrat to Republican.

    How this horror happened there is a mystery. Oh, wait! The perpetrator is from Boston… next question…

    and Dr. Moriarty (another victim she shot, but he survived) is . . . ?

    That’s a very interesting point. More interestingly, was watching the news when it first happened and the news anchor apologized for claiming that the white woman who was being led off the campus in handcuff was the suspect. How many people who aren’t suspects get led off in handcuffs. It was clearly the woman, yet they’re apologizing to her. o__O Ok.

    Dr. Moriarty is white for those who didn’t pick this up.

    And instead of a negative spin that it was a racially motivated crime, why not consider the positive angle that people of color were in power, making the tenure decisions? If black people are gonna continue to progress then they’re gonna be in the line of fire at times like this. At what point will we all just be human. First, it’s racist if they don’t get these type of positions frequently enough (agreed), then it’s racist if they become victims while on that position just like a white person would’ve got shot if he were on the tenure committee? Oh wait, the white people did get shot. Too bad they stayed alive so people could claim a hate crime although the evidence at this point does not support that conclusion.

    The shooter was looney, so just leave it at that. Endless, unsubstantiated conjecture does no one a bit of good and is quite disrespectful to the families.

    I knew Maria Ragland….

    This story was featured on Snapped. She’s suspected of shooting her brother.

    I just read this:

    “And instead of a negative spin that it was a racially motivated crime, why not consider the positive angle that people of color were in power, making the tenure decisions? If black people are gonna continue to progress then they’re gonna be in the line of fire at times like this. The shooter was looney.” Very well said, young man. I couldn’t’ve put any better.
