Can you imagine the media outrage if the roles were reversed?

So, then, why are the three soldiers arrested?

Yea

Gotta remember Eric Holder is busy fabricating a civil rights cast against George Zimmerman.

Meanwhile, Obama and Holder been buying time as the public forget how they sold "Assault Weapons" to Mexican drug dealers.

Let's not jump on that bandwagon, just yet.

So we have three white guys out walking around, supposedly in a bad neighborhood.

one guy turns up dead.

The other two guys claim they were accosted by five black guys, who backed off when they realized they were talking to soldiers.

But somehow one of the white guys ends up dead.

Now the cops have arrested three soldiers.

But, yes, of course. Let's focus on the racial aspect.

No need to really think about anything else at all.

It's confusing to read but it seems the three arrested were the black guys in the vehicle that originally confronted the three white guys,(allegedly).

The interesting thing, to me is that all of the men involved appear to be from the same unit.

From everything I have read is that since 1973 when the draft ended the overall quality of the average recruit improved greatly. Gotta remember, they still recruit lots of folk from all across the nation from all different backgrounds.

I suspect nobody can ever expect to draw large numbers of folks together, treat them as equals and be foolish enough to thing they would all be ready to sit down around the Camp Fire in peace singing Kumbaya.

As usual, there is a lot more to the story than we will find out from the media.

And CNN is starting to look a lot like "Mail Online" and the "National Enquirer"

CNN is having rating problems; I heard Piers Morgan will be cancelled, his ratings are lower than who CNN fired for Piers, Larry King. MSNBC is adding Alex Baldwin for Late Night, & after him, Ronan Farrow, who has the brains of Woody Allen, but the looks of Frank Sinatra. Maybe he has 2 biological fathers! Although some say he looks like Mia. It's not What You Know, but Who.

You mean the media catering to the emotional pull of the story?

or, The lack of outrage from the white community over a white guy getting killed by a black guy?

No. It's really bugging me that the guy was this close to going home.

Ah, of course.

I agree, wholeheartedly.

Wonder if we'll ever know what really happened.

We have similar outrage In Britain especially by Nationalist Parties when a white guy gets killed by black or Asian. Putting Into perspective as I often argue with some of the knobs I meet In Nationalism, It's only racially motivated If the killers pre-meditated killing another colour. Did they purposely go out looking for a white guy to kill or did their victim just happen to be white?

Even using racial language to the victim at the time can be said In the heat of the moment. If they did not actively go out looking for a white guy, then It's not racially motivated,
