Associate Professor John McWhorter addressed the senseless murder of Australian student Chris Lane by three Oklahoma teenagers in a Time magazine article titled, “Don’t Ignore Race in Christopher Lane’s Murder.”  Subtitled, “The Association of Young Black Men with Violence Doesn’t Come Out of Thin Air,” McWhorter’s article is remarkable in a number of respects, notably because he is a black man, because he concedes ugly truths about black crime in America that few other African-Americans are willing to admit, and because his opinions were published in one of the most liberal-leftist magazines in the country.

Far more typical of the always politically-correct Time was its news story that appeared on August 20, “3 Teens Charged in Slaying of Australian Player.” The online magazine reported Oklahoma officials’ account of the murder and the teens’ parents defense of their kids and featured a CNN video of a 911 call but neglected to report the critical details that two of the teens are black and that one had posted vile, anti-white racist comments on Facebook nor did Time provide any pictures of the confessed assailants.

Time did, however, see fit to slip in a plug for gun control despite the fact a gun has never been known to shoot anyone of its own volition: “Former Australia deputy prime minister Tim Fischer criticized the National  Rifle Association and asked Australians to avoid the U.S. as a way to force its  Congress to act on gun control. . . .I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the  three teenagers (but) it’s a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in  the USA. There is a gun for almost every American.”

Those intentional, PC omissions and the PC tendency to blame inanimate objects like guns for atrocities are reflective of what Prof. McWhorter bravely refers to in his “Don’t Ignore Race . . .” article.  He also contrasts the reaction, the ”massive alarm,” over the tragic but defensible killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman with Christopher Lane’s premeditated murder and reaches the heretical (among professional black agitators) conclusion “that young black men are in fact more of a problem than people like Zimmerman.”

The third murderer, Michael Dewayne Jones, was only charged with being the wheel man in the attack and as an accessory to first-degree murder after the fact. 

For inexplicable reasons none of them will be charged with committing a hate crime.

McWhorter ventures even further into racial heresy by citing the minimally-reported, recent incidents of “three black boys who attacked a white boy on a Florida school bus,” and “cases such as the two black guys who doused  a white 13-year-old with gasoline and lit him on fire, saying ‘You get what  you deserve, white boy’ in Kansas City, Mo. or 20 black kids who beat  up white Matthew Owens on his porch ‘for Trayvon’ ” in Mobile, Ala.”

The professor courageously concludes, “So, it’s just fake to pretend that the association of young black men with violence comes out of thin air. Young black men murder 14  times more than young white men. If the kinds of things I just mentioned  were regularly done by whites, it’d be trumpeted as justification for being  scared to death of them.”  (    

Amen, Mr. McWhorter, and thank you for your honesty.  Now it would be appropriate for you to comment on former Congressman Allan West’s tweeted question, “Who will Potus identify w/ this time?”  

I’m guessing Obama won’t pick the white boy,
