Jesse Jackson Tweets About the Chris Lane Murder

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by WhiteKnight77 (12018 posts) -

Jesse Jackson tweets that killing of Chris Lane frowned upon and is getting flack about his choice of words as well as being ribbed about his silence on it after 3 teens, 2 black and one white shot the Australian "just for fun" in light of the strong reactions he and other civil rights leaders had about another high profile case.

Does Jackson deserve the heat he is getting for his apparant lack of empathy towards the family of the slain student?

Frowned upon... yea he really didn't care for the dude. My parents used the words "frowned upon" when I was like 5.

Not sure why people wanted jesse jackson to comment on it anyways, but he should have picked a better term than "frowned upon"

Frowned upon is for like bad manners, not sociopaths killing someone

lol @ the response from lil Jimmy Norton. "Why ya frownin' let ya smile be your umbrella or sumtin' tss" Anyway, no one should care what Jesse Jackson thinks about anything. How he and Sharpton are still relevant after repeatedly doing things that have blacklisted other figures from the mainstream is beyond me.

Agreed.

I'm getting tired of the double standards in this country. The media sickens me.

CNN made a big deal about Zimmerman being so bad, and then frickin' Pierce Morgan spins this cold-blooded killing (tonights show) so as the black guy (who openly confessed his hate of whites) who struck down the Australian because he was bored, into him almost not being too bad.

I'm done with CNN. Morgan also made that first witness for Trevon Martin out to be a hero or something (the black chick with the cracker comment).

Frowned upon? Damn, that type of language is incendiary.

Pierce Morgan just hates America.  There doesn't seem to be a whole lot race related to this case, perhaps one member who was racist.  The more disturbing part is the fact they wanted to go out and kill someone  for fun

Cenk is about as sensible as it gets.

Considering that his son and daughter-in-law are now convicted felons doing jail-time, he should keep his hypocrit, racist mouth shut.

What a weak reaction. A murder is 'frowned upon'? Are you serious?

Where I live, you aren't allowed to shoot people for defending themselves against stalkers.

Also the video linked is by a huge racist, lol why would i listen to anything that he has anything to say.

The double standard just gets clearer and clearer.

Much like Al Sharpton, why do people care what Jesse Jackson's reaction to something is in the year 2013? He has no real power. He also said he was praying for the family of the victim and called the violence senseless. I don't really see what the story is here
#26 Posted by PernicioEnigma (5434 posts) -
Poor choice of words, particularly considering the (immature) scrutiny any of his comments on a black on white crime will receive. He was better off keeping his mouth shut - it's not his job to comment on every crime that occurs, and the perpetrators being black doesn't change that.

So I can attack you for following me while in the mall without repercussions?

I think they are overanalyzing his statement.  He condemned the violence.  I'll give him credit for that.

Nah, gotta go on about perceived "double standards." Just throw it at the wall and see if it sticks. Like, throw the accusation at that Antonio West deal, even though there's nothing to talk about what with the perps both being arrested and tried. Throw it at that, whoops, doesn't stick. So throw it at something else! Just keep stirring that pot!
