Why are white children more marketable than black?

Here's an example: In January, there were 50 gun deaths in Chicago, President Barack Obama's home for the past couple of decades.

Sadly, most of those murdered were black, under 25 and too-often tossed in the category of being a gang member or something just as ugly.

There was no national coverage to speak of. Why? Because it happens all the time in our major cities across the United States.

But, let some white kids get killed, and a white lady politician get shot, and all media hell will break loose.

Obama is marketing Sandy Hook parents to get his agenda passed with no shame.

What about the kids dying every day in Chicago, New York, Dallas, Houston, L.A.?
