! Now all of us in the White People Guild of America (a coalition with 20 kazillion evil white people) can rest knowing that we've executed yet another
black person who did nothing else but be black. Yay! Watch out, black people! We (and by "we", I mean "every white person in America because everyone of us obviously hates all black people") are roaming the streets looking for dark skinned people to persecute.
Look what we did in New Orleans! I bet you didn't know that White People can control the weather. I bet you didn't know that White People can create storms that specifically target blacks. Sure showed you!
But honestly, people...
I doubt that racism had anything to do with Gov. Schwarzenegger denying clemency to Tookie Williams. I think it had a bit more to do with Williams' brutal slaying of four people in two different instances. If race was involved at all, it was Tookie's racist hatred for white people that caused him to murder Albert Owens. Let's not forget the Tawainese Yang family that Tookie murdered. Do black people hate Asians now?
When James Byrd, Jr
. (a black man) was murdered in Texas, there were all types of calls for the (white) men who did it to be dealt with...harshly. Well, 2 of them were sentenced the death penalty and one life in prison. Jesse Jackson threw his two cents in there, as well.
If Tookie had committed those heinous crimes in Texas anytime after 2001 (where the Democrat-supported "James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Act" allows for tougher penalties in crimes where a discriminatory bias was the motive), he would've definately been sentenced to the death penalty anyway. Ah, the irony.
I suppose the boys at South Park were right when they held a trial for Cartman (a white kid) because he threw a rock at Token (a black kid). The judges decision:
If you're going to commit a crime against someone, you'd better make damn sure that they're the same color as you.
I'm glad that Tookie found peace with himself (if that's true) and I'm glad that he tried so hard to keep kids out of gangs. But his gang membership was not on trial back in 1981. It was the murder of 4 human beings. He can renounce and show sadness for gang membership and black-on-black violence all day long, but that in no way relates to his case at all. He never even admitted guilt for the crimes he was convicted. Why in the world would anyone even consider granting this man clemency for murders he still claims he's innocent of and shows no remorse for?
Wasn't a lack of remorse sort of a defense-killer for Scott Peterson? He never appeared like he even cared about what he had done. It didn't sit well with the jury.
But oh well. The Peterson case was white-on-white violence. Murder is never really serious until someone throws a little soul
into the mix.
