So Trayvon Martin & the Boston Marathon Bomber...
What's that you say? Those 2 people couldn't possibly be in the same sentence? Well then you must not understand how the radical right wing mind works...
This is real life: Limbaugh compared media coverage of Boston Marathon Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the media coverage of the murdered unarmed 17 year old Trayvon Martin--since they're described as kids and younger pictures were posted. Obviously this is some sort of huge attempt to show the innocents of these 2 criminals!
Except for that pesky being stalked & killed for no reason thing that happened to one of them.
On today's #TWiBRadio I drop this little tidbit on the rest of the team with out warning--they weren't ready. Also, we remember the ‘Four Little Girls’ of Birmingham 50 years later, Dr. Norma J. Goodwin of HealthPowerforMinorities.com discusses Minority Health Awareness Month, and more. Listen here:
And this morning on #amTWiB, the morning crew discusses which meat is most likely to make us sick, Pres. Obama delivering the keynote address at a Planned Parenthood gala and a local Republican mailer that was really, really white. On purpose.
