What About Emmanuel Fleming And Michael Swift?

Thursday, August 17, 2017

As the whole nation mourns the death of the young lady run over by an idiot in Charlottesville I have seen no mention of Emmanuel Fleming and Michael Swift. These two black gentleman were doing nothing more than standing on the steps of the South Austin's Friendship Baptist Church in Chicago when they were gunned down by two thugs in a drive by shooting.  And to make it even worse, if possible, Mr. Fleming had his three children with him.

No national coverage of this crime, completely over-shadowed by Charlottesville. Could it be this type of murder doesn't fit the narrative of the national media? 

Unfortunately murders in Chicago aren't real news anymore. This is the city, that according to the ABC news affiliate Channel 7, had 102 people shot and 15 killed over the 4th of July weekend. And not one memorial service was televised.

I guess the MSM is more interested in the death of one white woman than the multiple deaths of poor black people in Chicago.
