    What a sad parody of humans

    Hey, how about a book about something really important, like the truth
    of inner cities. Say, here’s an idea. How about one about a little kid
    getting killed by gang bangers? It could start off like this:

    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.

    A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black

    teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty… 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 possibly 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, or what?

    So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon or Michael Brown’,

    please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell your friends about me,

    tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the

    world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon and Michael Brown.

    I won’t hold my breath. I don’t have to anymore,

    Antonio West
