The Obama jobs death toll: Quote of the day - Michelle Malkin

It’s the lead sentence in a story published by the New York Times today:
“The United States economy has lost more jobs than it has added since the recovery began over a year ago. Yes, you read that correctly.”

2 charged with hate crime in beating of teen - Seattle Times

Two men are accused of committing a hate crime in the robbery and beating of a Seattle teen.

Ahmed Mohamed and Jonathan Baquiring have each been charged with first-degree robbery and malicious harassment, the state’s hate crime statute. Baquiring was arrested Tuesday evening; police are looking for Mohamed.

According to court documents filed this week in King County Superior Court, 16-year-old Shane McClellan says he was walking home from a party early on May 25 when two men asked him for a light. He told police the two robbed him and beat him for four hours, whipping him with his own belt. According to a police report, the two men, one black and one Filipino, made comments like, “How do you like it, white boy?” and “This is for enslaving our people.” McClellan is white.

Court papers say a police officer later encountered two men with dried blood on their hands and took samples. The state crime lab recently reported the blood matched McClellan’s DNA.

Jesse Jackson Jr. And Wife Address Affair Allegations
Jesse Jackson recently released a statement that addressed the rumors of him having an affair with another woman. The same businessman who has accused him of being part of plan to donate money to Rod Blagojevich has said that he also paid for a female social acquaintance, Giovana Huidobro, to fly to Chicago. Of the incident, Jackson said:

The reference to a social acquaintance is a private and personal matter between me and my wife that was handled some time ago. I ask that you respect our privacy, know I have disappointed some supporters, and for that I am deeply sorry. But I remain committed to serving my constituents and fighting on their behalf.
Jackson’s wife, Sandi Jackson, said that the situation was:

A very private, painful and unfortunate situation that my family and I have been privately addressing for several months

Giovanna Huidobro – Blonde Bombshell Mistress of Jesse Jackson Jr.?
Giovanna Huidobro is being accused of being Jesse Jackson Jr.’s mistress, although what the proof of this affair is remains a mystery. Besides being drop-dead gorgeous, Giovana Huidobro works as a Washington D.C. restaurant hostess, and the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Jackson asked an Oak Brook business man to fly her to visit him a couple times. On Tuesday they also reported that Jackson said he is sorry for disappointing any of his supporters as a result of his relationship with Ms. Huidobro, whom he calls a “social acquaintance.”

Jackson has been married since 1991 and has two children, so hopefully this latest scandal won’t result in another giant divorce scandal.

Jesse Jackson is a Democrat, currently serving in the House of Representatives in Washington, for Illinois’ 2nd congressional district. He is also facing a scandal regarding some misappropriation of campaign funds, however he claims he did nothing wrong.


Which Is More Criminal? Being Black Or Being Poor?

Post by RK Byers in NewsOne
On Monday, socialite Paris Hilton pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors after being busted in Las Vegas with cocaine.
Ms. Hilton was put on probation and also got a suspended sentence on a one-year jail term.

In 2006, Ms. Hilton had a DUI and was arrested 3 times in the following months for driving with a suspended license. For this, she eventually served a total of 20 days in jail.

Ms. Hilton is also heir to the Hilton Hotels chain and worth, by some estimates, as much as 30 million dollars.

Dig this:

  • The likelihood of a Black male going to jail for life is 16%, compared to 2% for white males and 9% for Hispanic males.
  • Of the 682 inmates put on death row between 1995-2000, 48% were Black, 20% were white, and 29% were Hispanic.
  • Blacks make up 12% of the U.S. population, yet we make up 44% of the prison population.
  • A Black can expect to be imprisoned 41% longer than a white convicted for committing the same crime.
  • Also, as we’ve already covered in another post, Blacks families earn only 58% of what whites families earn and white families are $95,000 richer than Black families.
One of the things that amaze me are that the seemingly mutual arguments that Blacks are inherently criminal and that Blacks are poor are used to justify the great percentage of Blacks in prison.

One would think that if we were inherently criminal, we should be expected to commit crimes. And if we can be expected to commit crimes, then what we’re doing isn’t even criminal anymore. It becomes like an affliction or a condition; a disease almost but one that affects the sufferer from birth and which shouldn’t be penalized but treated; and treated with the same care and concern with which one treats cancer.

Also, one would rightly imagine that the poor would be more likely to commit crimes. And I’m not gonna suggest that every poor person is Hugo’s Jean Valjean—stealing a loaf of bread to prevent his nieces and nephews from dying from hunger—but sheer need would provide a greater logic for the crimes of the poor.

All this said, shouldn’t rich white people who are not inherently criminal nor have the requisite need that we’ve associated with the poor, receive even stiffer prison sentences for any crimes that they commit?

I mean, after all, being both white and rich, what excuse do they have for being criminal?
