Ever since he brought it up with Trayvon Martin, I’m curious about everyone’s resemblance to Barack Obama.
Have to say, I don’t see it here:
Cleveland Police are investigating an attack on a 10-year-old girl as a hate crime, and the attack was captured on video and posted on-line.
It happened on Leeila Avenue off Bellaire Road on the west side.
A video posted on YouTube shows a white girl on a scooter ambushed and beaten by a black girl. The beating went on for about 12 seconds until you hear voices in the background calling for it to stop.
A Cleveland Police report shows the attacker is 13 years old. The victim, Danielle Fair, says she felt bullied.
A neighbor says she saw it all, and she heard the attacker use a racial slur.
“Cracker. She called her a cracker,” said Jessica Jaworski.
The attack looked planned, with the camera rolling even before the beating even started.
We went to the home of the teen throwing punches.
“Nobody was waiting. I don’t have to talk to you. It’ll all come out in court,” a woman at the door told 19 Action News.
The victim’s mom and dad want justice. They say their daughter never said anything to provoke the beating. Dad says he even tried talking to the other girl’s grandfather instead of calling police.
But now, a First District Detective is working the case. Hate crime or not, it’s a vicious attack.
I have two questions: where did the 13-year-old learn to hate white people so much (and that a cracker is not just something to carry Cheeze Whiz); and where did the 10-year-old learn how to take a punch? Police ought to look into both.
As racial epithets go, “cracker” doesn’t bother me so much. But that’s because I’m stupid. A word is nothing but a collection of letters. Some words begin with N and end in R: “never”, for example. But no one ever got brought up on hate crime charges for saying never (though this guy lost his job for using “niggardly” in a sentence). Cracker carries a lot of significance when it is accompanied by haymakers to the head.
Or when used to encourage infanticide:
President Obama is rarely shy to speak up when racial hatred erupts. A word, Mr. President?
Well, he’s a busy man. There’s Iraq, and the IRS, and Benghazi, and the VA, and all those illegal alien kids, and Ukraine, and Syria, and the contracting economy—not to mention his personal bête noir (what’s that supposed to mean?), global warming.
He’ll get around to it.
Update (6:55 p.m.): President Obama spent three hours and 40 minutes at Sunnylands to play golf. The president is now headed back to his house at Thunderbird Heights, according to the White House press pool report.
