Chris Lane Murder Coverage: Racial Double Standard?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Christopher Lane murder case has led to public outcry, given the senseless nature of the killing - and allegations of racial double standards by the media.

An Australian-born college baseball player, Lane was gunned down last week while out on a jog in Duncan, Okla., where he had been visiting his girlfriend.

James Edwards, 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, were charged with first-degree murder. Michael Jones, 17, was accused of being an accessory to murder.

According to police, Jones made a detailed confession, saying, "We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody."

Two of the alleged killers, Edwards and Luna, are black. Jones is white. Police have not ascribed a racial motive; Jones basically said it was "for fun."

Still, a number of commentators have suggested that race was an important factor in the shooting, and that media is guilty of a massive double standard.

Some have described it as "Trayvon Martin in reverse," with the mainstream media exaggerating the racial component of that crime, and ignoring them here.

Right or wrong, the media's alleged refusal to make race a central issue in the killing of Chris Lane, 22, amounts to an abrupt shift, critics believe.

The acquittal of George Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, who was black, sparked racial tensions around the nation.

Do you think this case should be examined through a similar lens? Do you think race was a factor in either (or neither) case? Comment below ...

SURPRIZE, SURPRIZE, SURPRIZE the ADL & the SPLC LIED! In Austin, Texas over the weekend a video was taken of a group of black thugs attacking three basically defenseless white hippies. The attack occurred yards from the Austin Police station. The police, of course, did not intervene. But, as we know from experience, the police are not here to protect us from vicious street thugs. They keep telling us as much.
The ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE, the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER and the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT of JUSTICE keep telling U.S. that this RACE HATE BULL$HYT ain’t happening, but VIDEO EVIDENCE make PROVING our POINT too EFFIN EASY!
WATCH this VIDEO you LILY WHITE LYING ZIONIST SOM BYTCHES!

PRESIDENT OBAMA was not AWARE of the CHRIS LANE MURDER! How convenient? This PRESIDENT and his ADMINISTRATORS don't seem to be "AWARE" of anything, especially if it doesn't FIT into their "LYING LIBERAL POLITICAL AGENDA"! The NAAWP calls "BULL$HYT" The PRESIDENT only SPEAKS OUT when a NEGLETTE gets KILLED! The NAAWP calls this the "MANDELA WAY", which is SIMPLY turning a "BLIND EYE" to BLACK on WHITE VIOLENT CRIME! WOW, does the PRESIDENT really THINK that WHITE AMERICANS can't see through all this BLACK on WHITE VIOLENT CRIME BULL$HYT? NAAWP LEGAL UPDATE: BLACK on WHITE HATE CRIMES in 2013 "CHRIS LANE was DEFINITELY an INNOCENT VICTIM of a RACIST HATE CRIME!" (TRAINAISM, 2013) AL SHARPTON, JESSIE JACKSON, BARACK OBAMA and ERIC HOLDER seem to be "TURNING A BLIND EYE" to BLACK on WHITE VIOLENT CRIME in the DIVIDED STATES of NORTH AMERICA! INTERESTINGLY, NELSON MANDELA did the EXACT same thing to WHITE SOUTH AFRICANS after being ELECTED PRESIDENT of SOUTH AFRICA back in the early 1990's! History, DEFINITELY has a WEIRD WAY of repeating itself, over and over, especially if it goes "UNREPORTED"! Do not expect to HEAR anything about the MURDER of MR. LANE on LYING ZIONIST NEWS NETWORKS like MSNBC, CNN, HLN, ABC, NBC, CBS or the HUFFINGTON POST! fatuous1 NAAWP says BOYCOTT the following LILY WHITE LYING LIBERAL MEDIA OUTLETS MSNBC, CNN, HLN, ABC, NBC, CBS or the HUFFINGTON POST! Jesse Jackson, White House Tepid Responses on Lane Murder Spur Race Debate http://www.newsmax.com/newswid...... The murder of Australian Christopher Lane by three "bored" Oklahoma teens last week has set off a firestorm of controversy about what role race played in the shooting, and now the White House and Rev. Jesse Jackson are taking heat for their treatment of the crime.
