There was a disabled young man in Chicago this week that was tortured for being white by four thugs. This is something that is indisputable. Now, leave it to the mainstream media to offer up someone who puts their foot so far in their mouth on this one it’ll take a truck and strong rope to pull it out.
There are a lot of things that one might say about the shocking Chicago case where four black youths held a young white special needs man against his will while they tortured him.
But one thing is for sure. It is most definitely evil. CNN commentator Don Lemon didn’t seem to think so. The critical part of the video is around 3:37.
A commentator calls it ‘evil’ and ‘man’s inhumanity to man’.
Don Lemon responds: “I don’t think it’s evil. I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and they have bad home training. I think that- when we say who is raising these people, we have no idea who is raising these young people.”
He seems to contradict himself by then also referring to it as inhumane.
In some sense, he is correct, because one does wonder who would raise evil people like this.
But it isn’t an excuse to diminish their responsibility or pawn it off on an ‘oh they’re just kids’ argument.
