The investigation into the shooting of a 7-year-old girl in Houston, Texas that civil rights activists and left-wing media sites asserted was a white supremacist hate crime took a wildly unexpected turn when it was revealed that the gunman was not white. In fact it turns out he a 24-year-old black man. This revelation has a lot of people looking downright stupid, if not a bit racist themselves!
Jazmine Barnes was killed in the back of her mother’s vehicle after the family were fired upon on the East Sam Houston Parkway feeder road near Wallisville Road at approximately 6:50 a.m. last Sunday.
Jazmine’s sister, who must have been in shock when she described the shooter as a “bearded white man in his 40s wearing a red hoodie. How could she imagine the black shooter to be a white guy? Who knows, but her description was off by a mile. However, this bogus description was all that was needed to set off a media frenzy. This was a great racist story. It was a cold blooded murder and the best part it was a racist hate crime. It doesn’t get much better as far as the fake news is concerned. And it didn’t take long for all the usual race-mongers to pile on.
Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King also offered up a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and arranged a rally to call for justice. Well, the information came, but don’t be surprised if King doesn’t back out on paying the reward, because the shooter was not the racist white guy they were hoping for.
Community activist Deric Muhammad claimed that the murder proved black people were being indiscriminately targeted by racist whites. “Black people are being targeted in this country, black people are being targeted in this county, black people are being targeted in this city. So we are thoroughly convinced that the killing of Jazmine Barnes was race related, we believe that there is a white supremacist element in that area that needs to be trotted out, found and brought to justice,” he said. Well, so much for trying to get out in front of the media and whip up the black community.
I’ve never seen a red hot story like this one come to screeching halt so fast! Where’s the outrage now? Where are the marchers? Where are all these concerned people; a killing is a killing, right? Don’t black lives matter, they did a few days ago?
