If He Was Black...

If Jose Peña, and his 17 month old daughter Maria, who were recently killed by Los Angeles police were black, this story would be getting nation-wide 24/7 coverage. There would be mayhem that made the Rodney King riots look like a peace protest.

If they were black, you'd have Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and every other black activist screaming at the top of their lungs simply because the victims were black. When there is a black victim, racism must be the reason for it.

As I mentioned in my post below, there is absolutely no reason that the little girl had to die for the actions of her father; it was avoidable. The only victim here is the girl.
