Double Standards in "Post-Racial America"

Michelle Obama has been busy teaching Americans what to eat at McDonald's and other restaurants, but who will teach them how to act?

An unimaginable fate met one unlucky 22 year-old woman who went into a McDonalds restaurant in Baltimore County, as she left in an ambulance in seizure from an unrelenting beatdown by two other women.
The assailants, ages 14 and 18, were black, the victim was white. State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger said the racial dynamics of the incident could result in hate-crime charges.
The Baltimore Sun reports that County Police say the incident occurred April 18 around 8 p.m. in the McDonald’s on Kenwood Avenue.
The video, first posted on and posted on the Drudge Report, shows two women — one of them a 14-year-old girl — repeatedly kicking and punching the 22-year-old victim in the head, as an employees of the Rosedale restaurant are heard laughing, and even taping the incident. The manager did nothing to eject and stop the two women from continuously kicking and hitting the victim.
One of the suspects hits the victim's head so hard that the victim goes into seizure. “She’s bleeding, yo. Her mouth bleeding, her mouth bleeding! She’s having a [expletive] seizure, yo! She’s having a seizure right now, she needs help right now! Ya’al better get the [expletive] out of here now!” the cameraman, allegedly an employee, is heard saying.
Only an older white woman steps in to confront two attackers, as the victim clings to her leg.
Both suspects were later identified.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the 14-year-old female has been charged as a juvenile. Charges are pending against an 18-year-old female. The incident remains under investigation and the State’s Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case.
The victim is reportedly still hospitalized.
McDonald’s released the following statement regarding the incident on their website:
“We are shocked by the video from a Baltimore franchised restaurant showing an assault. This incident is unacceptable, disturbing and troubling. McDonald’s strives to be a safe, welcoming environment for everyone who visits. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of customers and employees in our restaurants. We are working with the franchisee and the local authorities to investigate this matter.”

Where is the outrage from Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, and all the other so-called "civil rights actvists"? Oh, wait - do they pipe up only when crimes are committed against black people, but keep silent when the victim is a white, transgendered woman?

I can only imagine the deafening shrieks that would have emanated from the mouths of these loquacious liberals if the situation had been reversed. I can only imagine how President Obama would have called the attacker's actions "stupid," as he did when a white Cambridge police officer arrested Henry Lois Gates, Jr. Then, in an attempt to reconciliation, he would have invited both attackers and the victim to the White House for a beer summit.

But, of course, none of that happened. Welcome to Obama's post-racial America, where two black women beat a defenseless European-American into a seizure, and the world is silent.  Welcome to Obama's post-racial America, when a McDonald's employee tapes a brutal assault for three full minutes while doing nothing to stop it. Welcome to Obama's post-racial America, where Eric Holder refuses to prosecute the Black Panthers because "his people" suffered more some forty years ago.

As I discussed earlier on this blog, the world was outraged when a black stripper accused white Duke University students of rape, even though it was later determined that these charges were completely false.  But when a white woman is beaten into a seizure, there is no outrage. There is only silence - silence from the left.  

My heart goes out to the victim of this horrific assault. There is a special place in hell waiting for all those who stood by during the crime, for the low-life who videotaped it but did not intervene, and most especially for the savage criminals whom no one in the civil rights community will condemn.
