Inevitable backlash

When the media and the President actively foment racial divisiveness don't be surprised when these kinds of hate crimes are the result.  This has been the most racially divisive administration in recent history.  Hell, not just racially divisive, but flat out divisive.  Alinsky tactics, anyone?

Of course in this case there will be no Al Sharpton's, no marches, no national calls for justice, no bounties or racist, violent mobs, and no personal appeals from the President.

With Zimmerman everyone jumped on the "this is clearly racism" bandwagon without any proof of it.  There's still no proof of it, and now that the facts have come out and they support Zimmerman's self-defense claims, the media has been silent. Then you have cases like this, where it's far more cut and dry, the attackers are black, and they make the racially motivation for the attack clear, saying,

"This is for Trayvon ... Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]"

It doesn't get much more clear cut than that. Any bets on whether Obama's Justice Department will investigate this and other cases, as hate crimes, or whether it will get any media attention outside of the internet and local Ohio papers?

Or this?
