Keegan Schuchardt's mom was gunned down in a hail of bullets Tuesday.
Keegan, only three days old, was then snatched by the alleged killer, a black woman who sped away with the baby in a Lexus as his mother lie dying in a pool of blood.
Friends and family gathered at the slain mothers home to mourn and offer support for the child and now-widowed young father.
Reports claim that a common question heard uttered by supporters is, "Why?"
I may have the answer.
In recent weeks race hustlers have leveraged the Trayvon Martin case to heighten racial hatred among blacks for Whites. Reports circulated -- many claiming ink in major newspapers -- of black-on-White assaults in which Trayvon's name was evoked as an excuse to attack White victims.
Perhaps the most outspoken was Al Sharpton.
Sharpton deflected accusations that he was 'rushing to judgement' by condemning George Zimmerman who defended himself against Trayvon's advance.
"The rush to judgment was those that moved against him, said he was suspicious, and took his life. So to lecture us about rushing to judgment, we're a victim of a rush to judgment in this case. Let's be real clear on that." [source]
Sharpton was careful to note that Trayvon was unarmed. Sharpton failed to mention that, while the black teen possessed no firearms, he was well endowed with two strong arms that, according to witnesses, wailed on George Zimmerman before the teen was shot.
Although Sharpton tempers his spiels with disclaimers disavowing violence, the assaults ensue. His perpetual-motion race hustling sends a "cry me a river" message to many blacks who immerse themselves in racial victimization and revenge. Was that the mindset of Verna Deann McClain who was charged with killing Keegan's mom?
No one knows what occupied the mind of the black woman who killed Keegan's mom and provoked her to kidnap the tiny baby from the security of her possession.
We do know that neither Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or Eric Holderman pulled the trigger killing Keegan's mom. We do know they have created an atmosphere and hatred and animosity within the black community for White people. Such an atmosphere is often a contributing factor and frequently a deciding factor to commit acts of violence.
It may be that Sharpton's rhetoric directed the disturbed thinking of a black woman in the Houston suburbs to find legitimacy in gunning down a young mother and snatching a three-day-old baby.
