Where Racism Really Lives

The shooting at Lone Star College down in Texas yesterday completely dominated the news all afternoon. It was the only story on every TV news channel, and preempted broadcasts on many others. Uh oh, we’ve got another Newtown on our hands, let’s roll. 

By 11 o’clock last night the story was dead. It got a brief mention. This morning the story is so far down the page at CNN.com the link is next to “Remembering Heath Ledger”. At Fox News online, the story link is way “below the fold”, down by “Voice of Charlie Brown arrested for stalking”.

How is this possible? How could this huge story just up and die so quickly?

Because the shooters and the victims are black. Nothing to see here, move along. Just another nigga moment, same old same old.

The shooter has been identified as Carlton Berry, 22.

The men both ended up with gunshot wounds, and one of them shot and wounded a maintenance man who was an innocent bystander, according to acting Harris County Sheriff Armando Tello.

“He said, ‘I don’t want to fight you, I’m not trying to go to jail,” said Eyyonna Fontenot, a student who witnessed the argument and shooting.

She said the gunman initially walked away, but then changed his mind when the other man said something else.

“Whatever ticked him off, whatever they said, [the gunman] got it out of his backpack and just started shooting,” she said. “I just ran out of there cause I didn’t want to die, I have two kids.”

The shooting led to a campus lockdown and two-hour search for the gunman who got away. Several nearby Aldine ISD schools were also put on lockdown as a precaution.

A law enforcement source said the gunman shot the man he was arguing with, then accidentally shot himself in the buttocks.

Lone Star College student Brittany Mobley said she saw the whole thing happen.

“I saw two dudes basically get into an altercation and the dude that shot, he basically got angry and started shooting the other guy,” said Mobley. “A lot of people heard a lot of shots.”

Mobley said the suspect had the gun hidden in his clothes.

“Basically, I seen the dude that shot him and as soon as I heard the bullets flying and the gun being fired off, then everyone started running and it was a hint for me to start running as well,” Mobley said.

Some hint.

Jed Young, a spokesman for the college system, told The Associated Press that a “shelter-in-place order” was issued at the college due to reports of a shooter on campus. Students, faculty and staff were advised by the college website to take immediate shelter where they were. The school later said it was on lockdown.

Lone Star College is a community college system based in the Houston region and has six campuses associated with it.

Lone Star’s North Harris campus is 20 miles north of Houston in unincorporated Harris County. The campus has roughly 19,000 students.


According to the Lone Star College website, weapons are not allowed on the campus. The school offers firearm safety courses through its Second Amendment Academy
.

That campus was put into lockdown, as well as all the other schools in that system; with 19,000 students at this college, and who knows how many at the other ones, it’s likely that 50,000 people were impacted by this event. Yet not even 24 hours later and it’s nearly forgotten. Oh well, just another day in da hood. Next story, move along. Hey, maybe Sofie Viagra had another wardrobe malfunction?

Berry has been charged with aggravated assault and is still in the hospital.  The man involved in the argument was shot three times and is reportedly in critical condition at Ben Taub Hospital.  The maintenance man was shot in the leg and is expected to be OK. He was also taken to Ben Taub.

Another student on the campus was taken to the hospital after suffering a possible heart attack. The campus and nearby Aldine ISD schools were put on lockdown while dozens of law officers searched each building for the second suspect. They also searched a nearby wooded area and the neighborhoods surrounding the campus. 
...
Around 2:15 p.m., the suspected gunman turned himself in at Northwest Medical Center with a gunshot wound, according to law enforcement sources.

I did not see a single op-ed calling for blacks to be disarmed, or for further gun control amongst gang members, or illegal guns in the black community, or a hand-wringing essay on the epidemic problem of spontaneous lethal violence in the black community. Not a one. Close to 3 out of 4 when it comes to “gun violence” and leaders in many other kinds of violence (Google up “ghetto lobster” or “shaken baby syndrome”, epidemic to that group, that only the real racists will discuss) but not one pundit dares to speak out.  And this idiot Berry wasn’t even charged with attempted murder. Nope, just aggravated assault. For shooting people multiple times. What is that, um, 2/3 of a crime? The police can’t be bothered much either. The soft racism of lowered expectations. Alive and well at every single media source in America. Even Fox News. Racists.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
