Two years ago an unarmed white teen was killed by a black police officer and his death drew no media attention and no national and international protests.
According to the Washington Times, Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old man under the influence of drugs, was shot and killed October 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama. Despite public pressure for an indictment, a Mobile County grand jury refused to bring charges against Officer Austin, concluding that the officer acted in self-defense.
No national and international reaction and media coverage and activism. No protests. No United Nations intervention. Nobody burnt buildings to the ground for the white teen. And if they had done so, the media would have condemned it.
Now compare a similar shooting death on August 9. Michael Brown, a black unarmed 18-year-old man under the influence of drugs, was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, in Ferguson.
A St. Louis County grand jury’s decision not to indict the officer ignited violence and looting in Ferguson and days of protests nationwide against “racial injustice.” The black population burnt buildings to the ground for the black teen, as the media watched without condemning it. The United Nations, which did not intervene for the white teen gunned down, intervened for the black teen gunned down.
There were national and international protests.
Why in America does an unarmed black teen killed by a white cop cause outrage and an unarmed white teen killed by a black cop doesn’t?
Should white populations also burn buildings to the ground to drawn media’s attention for the “racism” of black cops who kill unarmed white teens?
No, because the U.S. media has no idolatry for white people.
Years ago Erik Rush, a black Christian author, wrote a relevant book entitled “Negrophilia,” published by WND. Yet, he was too generous. The Ferguson case shows that the problem in America surpasses negrophilia. It is negrolatry and even reverse racism promoted by a negrolatric media.
If white idolatry in the past of America is condemned today, why should modern-day black idolatry be spared?
The color of the offender or of the cop is irrelevant. An offender shot by a cop should be no cause for racial idolatry or ideological opportunism.
Yet, by the will of a negrolatric and ideologically opportunistic media, an offender can be entitled to special treatment, solely because of his skin color. And a sordidly pro-abortion and pro-sodomy individual can be entitled to presidency, solely because of his skin color too.
In today’s America, does skin color matter more than character’s color?
