Cosby and Whitlock

After the following suspects were arrested for the murder of Sean Taylor, the following preface appears before Jason Whitlock's article, "Taylor's death a grim reminder for us all":

EDITOR'S NOTE: This column originally appeared Wednesday [Nov 28], two days before Friday's [Nov 30] arrests of four men in the shooting death of Sean Taylor.

And so, to those detractors who claimed that Whitlock was pulling generalizations from his ass, here are the 4 suspects arrested for the murder of Sean Taylor:

Undated photos provided by the Miami-Dade Police Department shows the four suspects, Venjah K. Hunte, 20, Jason Scott Mitchell, 17, Eric Rivera, Jr., 17, and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18, arrested Friday, Nov. 30, 2007, in connection with the shooting death of Washington Redskins football player Sean Taylor.

Here are their myspace pages. Hmm... What a coincidence, they are aspiring rappers.

Here is some data from the U.S. Department of Justice:

In 2005, homicide victimization rates for blacks were 6 times higher than rates for whites.

In 2005, homicide offending rates for blacks were more than 7 times higher than rates for whites.


Here are the lyrics to a song by one of the 4 aspiring defendants... ahem! rappers:

Really Real

I'm a thug nigger,
I'm a thug, thug, thug crook nigger, crooked scheming fiending thugging drug nigger,
I'm a pants sagging mark stabbin' thug nigger, thug thug thug thug...

You might as well call me 2-faced
'Coz I be talkin' in ya face, to find out where that safe, and plot on you the next day.

Shit get really real,
And for my dawg I will kill, coz he will do the same for me.

And the fools are now charged for murder.

Wilbur Smith, attorney for Eric Rivera, Jr., "This is another situation of a young black male killing another young black male. It's really sickening when you think of the lives that are now forever affected."  (Source)

If all these sound just too heavy, just follow this simple instructional video (repost) produced by Chris Rock  :-D
