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.”
