you all seem to be in an uproar over this shooting lately of a black kid by a white/Hispanic guy..
how about this story? you hearing about it on your nightly news????

Couple met and married within a month and stayed together for 65 years... only to be parted after home invader beat wife to death








An 85-year-old woman was sexually assaulted and battered to death by a home invader who also shot her 90-year-old husband in the face with a BB gun.
Nancy and Bob Strait, who had celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in December, were discovered by their daughter at their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Both the pensioners were rushed to hospital where Mrs Strait, who was nearly blind, died from her injuries. Home invasion: Bob and Nancy Strait were both attacked when burglars broke into their home in Tulsa. Mrs Strait died of her injuries .
Mr Strait, who served in the 101st Airborne Division in World War II, suffered a broken jaw, broken ribs and severe bleeding. He is in a serious condition in hospital.

Police have arrested 20-year-old Tyrone Dale David Woodfork in connection with the case.

The Straits' distraught family today paid tribute to the pair, who grew up in poverty in rural Oklahoma during the Great Depression. They met each other on a blind date on Thanksgiving 1946, married a month later and went on to have six children, 18 grandchildren and about 50 great and great-great grandchildren. They had recently welcomed a great-great-great grandchild.

this is the 20 year old kid who ended this 65 year old marriage..








Their daughters Lanora and Andra told Tulsa World that the couple were loving and generous people who would do anything for anyone. 'Dad never talked, and Mama never quit talking,' Lanora said. 'Whatever she did, it came from the heart,' Andra added. The pair could be found sitting on their porch singing and playing the guitar during warmer summer evenings. Mr Strait, who had worked for the oil derrick supply company Lee C. Moore before retirement, enjoyed woodwork while his wife loved making quilts and baking. Suspect: Tyrone Dale David Woodfork, 20, was arrested a day after the attack on complaints of first-degree murder, burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon and two complaints of armed robbery Suspect: Tyrone Dale David Woodfork, 20, was arrested a day after the attack on complaints of first-degree murder, burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon and two complaints of armed robbery They had both been struggling with health problems before the attack. Mr Strait had been diagnosed with a terminal kidney illness but had outlived the doctor's prognosis. 'He was living because Mother was alive,' Andra told Tulsa World. The couple had had food poisoning the week before the attack. 'There is no one else who has been through what he's been through who is still alive,' Lanora said of her father. 'We pray he doesn't remember.' Tulsa police believe burglars broke into the Straits' home either late Tuesday or early Wednesday last week. They were not found until the Wednesday evening. The home invaders made off with their Dodge Neon, a television and $200. Woodfork was later found hiding in a nearby house after a witness spotted the stolen vehicle being driven down the road. He is being held at Tulsa Jail without bail accused of first-degree murder, burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of armed robbery. 'This investigation is far from over,' Officer Jason Willingham of the Tulsa police department told Tulsa World. 'We've still got a lot of questions that we still need answered.' Mrs Strait's funeral will be on Friday. The family has set up a fund the Nancy Strait and Bob Strait Support Trust to help pay for the service and her husband's medical care.

Didn't you get the memo?

Black people can do this all the time, but they're just keeping the status quo.

As soon as a non-white person does it, all hell breaks loose.

yeah...but this story just doesn't have the racewar-inspiring zing that "White Man Stalks and Kills Innocent Black Teen Just Going to the Store" has.

people are so easily manipulated.

Its only racist if a white person does it. Nevermind that white on black crime is almost unheard of. You want to stop burying young black men? Tell their peers to stop killing them.

I apologize if it came off harsh, but it is the truth. Black people kill white people everyday, and nothing is made of it, but the once a year the tables are turned, the Reverends inevitably stick their racist noses in the business.

I agree that it is a sick world we live in. I guess I'm just desensitized to it.

The most discriminated people on the planet are White males, we have Rights for everyone else, womens rights minority rights Muslim rights, guess that is just the way the cookies crumble, what a lovely looking elderly couple,just enjoying what time they had left on this planet, to be brutalized like they were, and the Perps will be out in about 5 Years under the guise of Prison over population, shame whitey does not have representation as in the likes of Jessie Jackson Al sharpton etc, but can you imagine the ruckus if someone was to stand up and go to boot for White males, they would probably have a Reward put on their head by someone like the New Black Panthers, wonder what happened to the Old black Panthers.

Dude I completely agree with you. My point was that you have twice in the first page of your own thread misconstrued sarcastic commens, between two different posters that obviously agree with you.

What we're getting at baddmove, is that the MSM (Main Stream Media), puts all their efforts into talking about cases like Trayvon Martin, but completely ignores ones like your OP. I never heard about the case you presented until I read this thread, and the fact is there are a million more of them that happen all the time, and get glossed over. Mine and Domo's comments were just sarcastic remarks about how in the media's eye, if a white person so much as looks at a black person the wrong way, they should be hanged at high noon, but when the tables are turned, it's either not the black person(s) fault and they're being unfairly targeted, or the issue gets swept under the rug.

Black people gangrape 11 year old girl and New Black Panther guy defends them

This issue didn't get half the amount of pub the Trayvon case is.

You are making the point for us by asking what is the point.

Don't you get it? These stories happen every day, and not a thing is said unless it's on a message board or some small-time blog. This is the kind of story you don't hear on CNN, because the media chooses to ignore it and concentrate on why 'Whitey' is to blame.
