The cases of Ralph Yarl and Kaylin Gillis are all over the news now.
Both Ralph and Kaylin were shot by elderly homeowners who were overreacting to what they may have thought were trespassers.
Both cases are in the news. But they’re getting a very different treatment. One guess as to why.
Ralph Yarl armed only with ‘black skin,’ family lawyer says – AP
That’s true, insofar as Ralph’s skin color was the only reason his case is being blown up and treated as a racist attack despite the lack of a single shred of supporting evidence.
While Ralph was only wounded, Kaylin is dead. But it’s okay. As a white woman in the BLM era, her life officially matters less.
Had Kaylin been black, she’d no doubt be getting the Black Lives Matter treatment. Since she was unfortunate enough to be born without black nationalist skin privilege, it’s just being covered as a tragedy.
But what’s the difference between the two cases?
Ralph’s shooter was in his eighties, Kaylin’s in his sixties. Kaylin was part of a larger group that was lost and the property was more isolated. But basically the cases are fairly similar.
Kaylin’s case is more damning because she was actually killed and the shooter, who was younger, left his house.
Ralph’s case is weaker because the shooter is much older and was in his house.
The only reason to privilege Ralph’s case is that manufacturing racism is the tainted oxygen that sustains leftist power and mythology.
The differing treatment of Ralph’s case and Kaylin’s case shows what a separate and unequal system looks like.
And that’s what we have.
“Doug and I are praying for Ralph Yarl and his family as he fights for his life,” Kamala Harris tweeted. “Let’s be clear: No child should ever live in fear of being shot for ringing the wrong doorbell. Every child deserves to be safe. That’s the America we are fighting for.”
Every child. As long as the child isn’t white.
Halle Berry, Kerry Washington and other millionaire celebrities soon joined the lynch mob. And segregationist pal Joe Biden, who has yet to see a racism claim he couldn’t jump on, has pounced on this one.
President Joe Biden spoke with Ralph Yarl and his family on Monday amid a national outcry over the shooting of the 16-year-old Black high school student, a White House official confirmed.
Yarl’s attorneys, Ben Crump and Lee Merritt, said Biden offered prayers for Yarl’s health and justice. Yarl left the hospital on Monday and is recovering at home, after suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
President Joe Biden has invited Ralph Yarl to the White House when he recovers.
No calls to Kaylin’s family. BLM means her life did not matter.
The boyfriend of a New York woman who was killed Saturday after the couple pulled into the wrong driveway while searching for a party recalled her final moments Tuesday, saying in an interview that his life was shattered.
Walsh said the four friends were traveling with another vehicle that also pulled into the wrong driveway. The group realized they were at the wrong home and were leaving.
We thought we were at the right address,” Walsh said. “We didn’t have any cell service to figure it out. As soon as we figured it out that we were at the wrong location, we started to leave, and that’s when everything happened.”
Walsh said what occurred next was a blur.
“My friend said, ‘They’re shooting — go!’ I tried to step on the gas as fast as I could, and that’s when the fatal shot came through,” Walsh said.
Walsh said he met Gillis, an animal lover and aspiring marine biologist who graduated from Schuylerville High School in 2021, when he was a sophomore in high school.
The couple often spoke about being the “2%,” he said, citing an apparent statistic that indicated only 2% of high school sweethearts get married.
They had been a couple for more than four years.
“I had high hopes, and I had plans,” Walsh said. “I didn’t want to be with anybody else, and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.”
He said of Gillis: “I want the world to know how good of a person she really was and how much she impacted everybody who had the fortunate opportunity to be in her life.”
Walsh said he’ll miss “her smile,” “her eyes” and “how happy she was able to make me.”
He added, “My world was taken from me Saturday.”
Sorry, doesn’t matter. Wrong race. No call from Joe Biden. Try losing the love of your life while being black next time.
