A 13-year-old Kansas City white teen ager was followed home by two older Black Teenagers who poured gasoline on him then set him on fire on HIS OWN FRONT PORCH with a shout out:
“This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.”
The teenager was only two blocks from his home when he noticed that he was being followed by the two older Black youths. He made it to his front porch before the attack happened. He managed to use his shirt to tamp out the flames from his hair, face and upper body but not before sustaining first degree burns on his face and head. Thankfully, he was able to call 911 himself as no one else was home at the time. The police are treating this as a Hate Crime! I’ll bet that is dropped assuming the perps are even apprehended.
Obama Complicity? Since becoming President, Obama has time and time again played the race card and the “haves vs the have-nots” to bolster his campaign chances with his base. Today, at the United Auto Workers’ annual National Community Action Program Legislative Conference in Washington DC, Obama once again blamed those who strive to improve as the problem with America when he said;
“America’s not just looking out for yourself, it’s not just about greed,
it’s not just about trying to climb to the very top and keep everybody else down,” (my emphasis)
Maybe Obama’s constant race baiting and class warfare rhetoric did not incite the two Black youths to set a White teenager on Fire on his own front porch. But it clearly does not help. Maybe Obama would be a better person and leader if he stopped dividing every group there is in this country and maybe, just maybe, tried to live up to his campaign rhetoric of him being a “UNITER”
