DAILYKENN.com -- Melvin Lovette, Jr. was killed for less than $200 during a convenience store robbery where he worked.
The black male who fatally shot Lovette in 2007 recently died of natural causes in a hospital. Justice was denied.
James Antoine Holden Williams, 24, confessed to killing Lovette, but insisted it was an accident.
The crime occurred in Huntsville, Alabama.

• Lovette worked a low-paying job to make ends meet. Williams apparently opted to choose a short cut; to steal for a living. Still, the regressive left would insist that people like Lovette are awash in white privilege.
In reality, the economic disparity that exist between white and black Americans can be attributed to intelligence and subsequent life choices. That is, intelligent black Americans who choose to work for income posses the same privilege as white Americans who do the same.
• Some people believe Jim Crow laws were an expression of white racism; that white people simply had an aversion to people with very dark skin. Others believe Jim Crow laws were an effective, though less-than-perfect, means of protecting white citizens from violent black crime.
Jim Crow likely would have prevented the shooting death of Lovette.
