“A Crime to Remember”: Why is Compassion for the Victims of Interracial Crime Always a One-Way Street?
Previously, on this subject:
[“Whites Always Grieve for the Rare Black Victims of White Violence, but as Vester Flanagan’s Racist Atrocity Shows, for the Umpteenth Time, All but a Microscopic Number of Blacks are Devoid of Such Compassion and Moral Outrage for the White Victims of Constant Black Racist Murders.”]

On this subject, you might want to see an episode from this season's ID Channel show, “A Crime to Remember.” Titled, “Lock Up Your Daughters,” it concerns a (white) serial killer of young girls in Gaffney, South Carolina in 1968.
Three white girls were abducted and killed, then a black girl. The murder of the latter “brought the town together.” The fictional narrator of this episode is a black woman who says, “I admit I didn't care too much when the first three girls killed were white.”
Of course, she didn't. No irony was intended by the show's producers.
N.S.: This episode ran again at 8 pm ET on Thursday, November 19, and will, at some point, be re-run yet again.
