bullhusk Posted July 21, 2013 Share Posted July 21, 2013 This sure needs to be made national news like what we are reading and hearing every day now from the other side. Subject: Fw: The Death of Antonio WestThe death of Trayvon - killed by a "white hispanic" - was given national attention to the exclusion of other things of import such as the Benghazi event, the IRS scandal, the Fast & Furious gun-running scandal, Obama's $100Million African vacation, and others ...We only got a brief news blurb about the death of Antonio West and then he was gone ...You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot at point blank range by two black teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...too bad. I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless.My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.I am one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media doesn't care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President Obama has no children who could possibly look like me - so he doesn't care and the media doesn't care because my story is not interesting enough to bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.So while you are seeking justice for Treyvon, please remember to seek justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Treyvon.Thank you.— in Brunswick, GA. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
