Once again we have an example of how the liberal media is refusing to accuse a black of committing a racial hate crime.
Sheriff’s Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47 had stopped at a Chevron station to fill his patrol car. He was in full uniform when a young black man came up behind him and opened fire, shooting Goforth multiple times. After Goforth fell to the ground, the black man stood over him and shot him several more times. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman described the shooting as an execution style murder.
Fearing to mention anything about race, officials and the media only describe the killer as a ‘dark-complected male’ wearing red shorts and white t-shirt, driving a dark red or maroon Ford Ranger. Surveillance video showed the shooter and his truck.
Sheriff Hickman stated:
“It appears to be an unprovoked execution-style killing of a police officer.”
“We will hunt this person down and do our best to bring that person to justice.”
What do you think the response would have been from the Harris County officials and the media had the deputy been black and the shooter had been white? To begin with I seriously doubt if they would have referred to either man as dark or light complected.
Secondly, it would have instantly been labeled as a racial hate crime, fueling Al Sharpton and the rest of the black activists to take to the streets in protest. Houston streets would have been filled with violence. Cars would be overturned and set on fire. Store fronts would have been smashed in and some possibly looted and set ablaze. Black Lives Matter signs and chants would fill the streets of Houston and many other cities. The media would be covering it all and making it the number one news story.
However, it was a black man who executed a white cop and no one is protesting. The streets of Houston and every other city are relatively quiet and no one is holding up signs that read ‘White Lives Matter’ or ‘Police Lives Matter.’ In fact, they can’t even refer to the suspect as being a black when the released images clearly show that’s what he is.
This reinforces what I’ve been saying ever since Obama took residence in the White House that racism in America is seen as a one-sided issue. They believe that only whites can be racist and act out their racial hatred, but blacks are never racist and none of their actions have anything to do with racism. This is one of the greatest hypocrisies that are destroying America. If allowed to continue, I’m certain the streets of America will run red from an all-out racial war. Thousands of lives will be shed due to racial hatred from both whites and blacks and no one will be safe in their own home.
My prayers go out to the family of Deputy Darren H. Goforth and his co-workers.
