SHOCK!!! PERFECT VILLAGE SUSPECTED DUI TRAGEDY ELICITS ONLINE HATERATION AND RACISM THAT TARNISHES GRIEF!!!
Raw public reaction to a recent suspected DUI tragedy in Prairie Village has been venomously racist while ignoring the fact that drunk driving is one of those rare crimes that transcends nearly every demographic barrier.
TKC Note To Drunks: If you're driving, don't drink. If you're drinking, don't drive. But if you do . . . Be sure to kill somebody of your same race/class and that way nobody will care.
Anyhoo . . .
The a tribute to the victim of the tragedy has been scheduled:
Services set for woman killed in crash with suspect eluding police
This got us thinking here @ basement headquarters:
LIKE IT OR NOT . . . ALL OF THE RACISM AND HATERATION BEING THROWN AT THIS CASE HAS TARNISHED THE GRIEF OF THE VICTIMS AND FAMILY SURVIVORS OF THIS DRUNK DRIVING TRAGEDY FROM A RHETORICAL PERSPECTIVE!!!
Sadly, the same thing happened to Harry Stone . . .
Allow me to explain . . .
Bigots and racists from across the nation have taken an interest in the racial dynamics of this story in much the same way as the Harry Stone's horrific murder . . . In Mr. Stone's case, the vitriol and hate they created has undoubtedly thwarted community cooperation needed to bring about justice. In this Perfect Village case . . . So much racism actually has more than a few local power brokers feeling sorry for the DUI suspect and planning a bit of support for him given that he's up against some overwhelming opposition in Johnson County.
The lesson here is that racist ranters don't even care about the victims of the tragedy they decry . . . It's all just fodder for personal and mental health issues that have taken the form of racist screeds online . . . Haters will rant about Harry Stone all day but not once will they do as much as to hang a poster or donate to a reward fund.
Finally, what has been lost in this case amid saccharine reporting and so much online hate has been the very real dangers of suspected drunk driving which clearly can impact drivers at any time of the day and in every part of the Greater Kansas City Area.
