East Central University baseball player Christopher Lane was brutally gunned down Friday by three black teenagers who killed him “because they wanted to see someone die.” The heartless brutality of the act gives one pause. Where are the race baiters? What have they to say for this?

Christopher Lane was a intelligent 22 year old man with a bright future in front of him. An Australian, he was attending East Central University in Ada, OK on a baseball scholarship. He had gone jogging on Friday in Duncan, OK when he was singled out by three black teenagers for murder. Murder for fun.

Was this crime racially motivated? Yes it was. Because the three black teenagers, James Edwards, Chancey Luna, and Michael Jones, ages 15-17 years old respectively, decided to take him out.

They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: ‘There’s our target,’” Ford said. “The boy who has talked to us said, ‘We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.’”

As Christopher Lane was jogging along, not knowing he was being tailed and followed, one of the young men shot him in the back. While no one heard the actual shooting, witnesses saw Lane stagger across the road, and drop to his knees before collapsing on the side of the road. The car with the three black teenagers sped away from the scene.

Call it boredom or a racially motivated murder, in the end it doesn’t matter because an innocent man is dead. Where is our President? Why isn’t he out speaking out about the crime and its implications? The fact that these three black teenagers deliberately and with intent targeted a young white man speaks volumes.

Where is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? They’re still getting their hoodies up for Trayvon Martin. They don’t have time to address the problems within the black community. And it doesn’t profit them much to address personal responsibility. If our leaders at the top won’t do it, why should they? No one wants to look in the mirror and hold themselves accountable. Blame it on the white man, blame it on boredom. Blame it on the rain.
