From the article:
On Thursday, July 11, police discovered the rotting body of 17-year-old Darryl Green, a black child from the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. Green’s body was found behind a boarded-up house in the 6500-block of South Damen, face down on basement stairs. The body was so badly decomposed that originally, local news reports suggested that he had died of blunt force trauma. On Friday, an autopsy showed he had been shot to death. Relatives reported that Green had refused to join a gang at school.
Meanwhile, members of the media including Reverend Al Sharpton and Reverend Jesse Jackson focused on the “not guilty” verdict in [the Florida case]. The only media outlets that have covered the murder of Darryl Green areThe Chicago Sun-Times and ABC 7 Chicago. The New York Times’ Joe Nocera mentioned Green in passing in a blog post devoted to highlighting gun crimes across the country. President Obama has not commented on Green’s death. Neither have any other politicians, including local Congressmen Danny Davis and Bobby Rush, or Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Neither has anyone at MSNBC,CNN, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, The Washington Post, Associated Press, Reuters, or throughout the Hollywood community.A kid probably killed by a gang...who cares? Just one more likely black on black crime that can't be used by Al Sharpton and the media to push their agenda. Remember Darryl Green in your prayers, a kid whose life and death don't matter to the high and mighty. Darryl might look like Obama's son if Obama had one, but he's no earthly use to Obama's political goals so the good kid from O's home town is invisible. Let him not be invisible to us. Pray for Darryl Green! And whenever somebody talks to you about Trayvon Martin ask if they've ever heard of Daryll Green.
Grant him eternal rest, O Lord, and give comfort to his family.
