My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point-blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.
I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.
Georgia has no death penalty so the black teens who murdered me will not face a death sentence… too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.
See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.
Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could look like me – so why should he care?
I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but the media didn’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.
There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.
I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller – I no longer have my life.
Isn’t this a great country?
So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me.
Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.
I won’t hold my breath.
I have none.
I did not post this story to inflame racism in this country, but to let everyone know about Antonio West’s story since barely a mention was reported by the media who do not want to touch this story. The media blacks out stories like this because it is a white child shot by black teens. Just as they black out the black on black crime going on in Chicago where kids are killed every night. And Chicago has the biggest crime rate in the country.
They have gun control. How is that working for you in Chicago? The bad guys will always get their guns no matter what and the people who can’t have guns are the ones who suffer. But this is another inconvenient fact that the government and the media do not want the public to know.
Another truth the media does not want you to know is that the Stand Your Ground law has benefited blacks more than whites in Florida, yet Holder and the usual suspects want that law repealed.
Stevie Wonder stated he will not make appearances in states which have Stand Your Ground Laws. Well, Stevie we do not give a hoot. Get your facts straight before you make your threats that nobody cares about. Stay out of our states and think about your own hypocrisy which is you have body guards with guns who protect you. But, those you consider beneath your Royal Highness Celebrity, should shut up and mind your own business.
