Why Isn't This News?

Last month Jacqueline Gardner, a 24 year old waitress and mother of two was murdered outside of her apartment for the $85 in tips she had made that night working at Joe's Crab Shack by three thugs with a shotgun. As of the article I've linked to being published, two of the suspects have been apprehended with a third being in hiding. Police have shared information with the FBI and hope to bring the third gunman to justice.

My question is, why isn't this bigger news? It's an unprovoked attack by three men, who according to witnesses were of one race, attacking and killing a person of another race. I can only guess, but the old eyeball test says it is because it doesn't fit in with the Lame Stream Media's narrative of racial violence against blacks who according to witnesses claim performed this assault and killing of a white working mother.
They need to realize that until we can talk honestly about race the problems aren't going anywhere. According to the FBI's statistics, African Americans are targets of crime from within their own ethnic group than from outside of it, and target other ethnicities more often than they are targeted.

It's part of the thug culture and we all see it every day. It goes from the vile, misogyny and violence filled lyrics of rap and hip hop, the thug life glorifying ego vehicle movies of DMX and 50 Cent, to the race apologists in Eric Holder's Justice Department refusing to prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation during the last two series of elections. I'm not going to pretend to have an answer for how that came to be, or how to fix it, but until it is addressed we are going to have more Jacqueline Gardners and more Trayvon Martins, and a whole lot more assholes like me who can't ignore the difference.
