DAILYKENN.com -- Imagine the media firestorm had a loving and doting black mother been executed by a white man; her body dissected, and stuffed in trash bags.
But, alas, this is a black-on-white homicide. Consequently race is not mentioned. Only photos of the suspect (innocent until proven guilt) and victim speak to the racist angle.
But wait. There's more.
The black suspect is also accused of murdering a white man who remains were found in a parked car.
Meanwhile, white people are pressed to confess their "white privilege" and obsess with lynchings of criminals (including many white victims) that occurred over 100 years ago.

"She was a good person who did not deserve to die the way she did," said Earl Fox, who shared a daughter with Erica M. Bradfield.

The family of an Evansville woman killed in a gruesome crime invited 14 NEWS into their living room on Tuesday.

Bradfield's family told us, it's unclear if Martin was dating Bradfield.
"She knew this boy from a long time ago in Washington, Indiana," Linda Deckard explained of Martin. "We've always had trouble with him and his family. I've gotten into it once before and told him to stay away. He is a very troublesome boy. He's killed cats as a young boy, I've heard," Deckard said.
On Saturday, Martin's mother told us he admitted to to shooting Bradfield in the head and claimed he took her body into the basement where he said he used lawn tools to dismember Bradfield, then later put the pieces in trash bags.
"Erica was a kind person that would do anything for anybody. She was a loving person that should not have been done this way," Bradfield's mother, Linda said.
The family tells us they last saw Erica in person on December 1, and after not hearing from her for days, they grew even more worried.
"We miss her an awful lot," said Deckard. "Like I said, she is very kind. She was too kind to too many people."
Bradfield's entire family plans to be at Martin's first court appearance on Wednesday, December 27.
