Why I’m not writing about Ferguson

Stacy McCain sums it up very nicely:

“The only reason the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, has become The Biggest Story in [the] History of the Whole Freaking World is that (a) Brown was black, and (b) the cop who shot him was white.

“That’s it — the whole story.”

And if the races were reversed: white victim, black shooter, cop or not, the dishonest media (remember Trayvon’s primary-school pix?), the usual race-baiters, the Great Divider and his criminal AG, would ignore it. Completely.

UPDATE:  One thing is for sure: Brown is another Trayvon, another low-life punk best left to the social workers: “Long before they encountered George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson, Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were on the downward path. Given their taste for dope, their instinct for defiance, and their predilection for violence, they were both likely to end up as killers or as killed.”

  1. What is there for a sensible person to write about on that subject? The poor blacks are rioting again, destroying their own neighborhoods and any possibility of jobs in the burned out, looted, stores when it’s all over. Not only that, they are rioting for nothing. Protests might be effective, but the rioting and looting – just self-fulfilling prophecy.

  2. It’s the American Kabuki cycle, the song-and-dance that gets enacted every few years, attended by hack journalists and their political hangers-on, who insist that attention much be paid to low-lifes like Brown and Trayvon. The culture already pays too much attention to them, for my money, with no result except another Kabuki.

  3. Whatever the eventual findings will be, it is now not about facts, that for sure. Sad and recurring story.

  4. These stories recur because the cops are trigger happy and the slain are usually some local thug (like Trayvon and Brown) whom the dishonest Democrat news media turns into an innocent victim. And the pols, ever in search of publicity, pile on. Not unlike what happens with Gaza.
