A Tale of Two Deaths: How Democrats treat victims differently based on race

A Tale of Two Deaths: How Democrats treat victims differently based on race

All the Democratic Party presidential candidates have come under fire from the #BlackLivesMatter crowd for not addressing the rare occurrence of black people dying at the hands of police.

They appear to have learned their lesson and are in full political cover mode when it comes to the death of Sandra Bland.

As written by Derek Hunter for Townhall:

Bland, who was black, hanged herself, according to all the evidence, after an arrest following a traffic stop in which she became combative with police. But she has become the latest cause for the progressive left, particularly the #BlackLivesMatter movement. In spite of a coroner’s report to the contrary, activists have seized on her suicide to accuse police in Texas of murder.

The three top Democrats in the race wasted no time in weighing in on the death and feeding into the sort of paranoia that led to the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie in Ferguson, Mo.

Hillary released a statement saying:

My heart breaks at seeing another young African-American life lost too soon. Sandra Bland had a bright future ahead of her, and it is particularly tragic that she lost her life just as she was to start her new career.

From what I’ve seen, the circumstances of this case are incredibly disturbing. I hope and expect that there will be a full investigation into this situation. It is also a tragic reminder of the ongoing systemic issues of race and justice in America that we must address with urgency, and we have to do more than talk—we have to take action.

Conversely, the one time Clinton spoke about the death of Kate Steinle, the 32-year-old murdered in San Francisco by an illegal alien, she never once mentioned Steinle’s name, never told us her heart was broken, never even mentioned one way or the other how she felt about it or whether Kate’s death affected her in any direct way.
