Rejecting the Facts: The Murder of Jazmine Barnes
The narrative that literally screamed “white supremacist” from the MSM over the death of Jazmine Barnes in a drive by shooting on December 30, worked the already out of control racial divide into a frenzy. Fact: Two black males are implicated in the murder, not a “white supremacist.” It all stemmed from a white man people at the scene saw fleeing, reported by Breitbart.
But he was likely fleeing the sound of the shooting and had nothing to do with the murder, according to police. That’s not how the Media and various race baiters told it.
A red pickup pulled next to the Barnes vehicle on December 30 and shots rang out. The mother was hit in the arm, and Jazmine, who was sitting in the back seat, was killed. Two other girls in the car were not hurt.
Acting on tips, Police arrested Eric Black Jr, 20, and charged him with capital murder. Larry Woodruffe, 24, the second suspect, was also arrested and his bail set at $100,000 on drug charges, although further charges will be forthcoming. The murder weapon was found in Black’s home.

The false narrative
It was a case of mistaken identity, not a “hate crime.” Some people are still pushing the hate crime angle. Irresponsible? At least one lawmaker, Sheila Jackson Lee, is not admitting it, according to Fox.
The rejection of the facts, or even searching for real facts is why our nation is so divided. Here are some of the tweets about or by those who don’t care about such important things.
This guy, @MeritLaw, along with complete fraud Shaun King, led the MSM into a frenzy of stories about Jazmine Barnes and how white men are just out there killing young black girls. A black man admitted to her murder.
How many people will go back and change their tweets now? pic.twitter.com/M1jZQjXn9G

A message to the white supremacist frauds like: #MeToo, #TimesUp & #blackfeminists.
This is Jazmine Barnes. She was murdered by a white supremacist in Houston. Her murderer is still at large.

And some folks aren’t even bothering to delete their tweets over the matter. They reject facts. They refuse rational thoughts. They live in their own world of hate. How does that help America come together? It doesn’t. And no one seems to care. Last week, speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi looked the DHS Secretary in the eye and said “I reject your facts.” No one wants to hear facts anymore, apparently.
