Former Florida Rep. Allen West, who is African-American, chided Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, noting they condemned Florida in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting yet remained silent on the bus attack.
“Three 15-yr-old black teens beat up a 13-yr-old white kid because he told school officials they tried to sell him drugs,” the former Army colonel wrote on his Facebook page. “Do you hear anything from Sharpton, Jackson, NAACP, Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, liberal media, or Hollywood? Cat got your tongues or is it that pathetic hypocrisy revealing itself once again? Y’all just make me sick.”
Jackson later said the two cases were not comparable.
Jesse Jackson believes that it is OK for a black teenager to try to kill an Hispanic for being a creepy ass cracka, but not OK for a white kid to refuse to buy drugs from black teenagers.
One of the assailant’s fathers chimed in with Hillary’s “what difference does it make?”
“We’re sorry what happened to the victim, but that’s just the way it is”
