Kes Bunuh : Rakyat Australia Berang Dengan Amerika Syarikat

Amerika Syarikat berhadapan gangguan perkauman berhubung insiden 2 remaja Afrika Amerika dan seorang remaja kulit putih membunuh seorang pemain besbol harapan Australia berusia 22 tahun yang menuntut di Amerika Syarikat atas alasan lebih kurang "kerana berasa bosan dan ingin membunuh seseorang". Ia mencetus rasa marah rakyat Australia dan ada yang memboikot Amerika Syarikat. Di Amerika Syarikat sendiri, kes telah membangkitkan sentimen perkauman.

Ini kerana pelakunya merupakan dua remaja kulit hitam berusia 15 dan 16 tahun manakala remaja kulit putih berusia 17 tahun adalah pencacai mereka.

" 90% orang kulit putih jahat. Benci mereka" seperti yang pernah di Tweet oleh salah seorang pelaku April lalu.

(CNN) -- One of the Oklahoma teenagers accused of killing 23-year-old Australian baseball player Christopher Lane had previously posted images online showing himself posing with guns and wads of cash.
And three days before what police call the indiscriminate shooting, the suspect, 15-year-old James Edwards Jr., tweeted, "With my n****s when it's time to start taken life's" -- a line from the Chief Keef rap song, "I Don't Like."
Back in April, he tweeted, "90% of white ppl (people) are nasty. #HATE THEM."
Police in the town of Duncan have charged Edwards and Chancey Luna, 16, as adults with first degree felony murder, said Kaylee Chandler, a Stephens County court clerk.
Case triggers political, racial questions
The seemingly senseless killing has left many Americans disgusted. And for some, it triggered a political question with racial overtones in the wake of the polarizing Trayvon Martin case, in which an unarmed black teen was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer who claimed self-defense. The acquittal of George Zimmerman, who describes himself as Hispanic, infuriated many people and triggered protests around the country, as well as remarks from President Barack Obama.
Now, some Americans are asking why this killing, in which the victim was white and the alleged killers black, has not brought reaction from the president.
The conservative news website complained Wednesday that the Rev. Al Sharpton, a prominent civil rights figure, and the president, "who quickly opined on the George Zimmerman self-defense case against Trayvon Martin, are silent. Not only should they be publicly condemning the alleged killing, which is now an international incident, but they should be asking why the hell these teenagers were 'bored' in the middle of the day. Where were their parents? Where is Sharpton when it comes to condemning young black men joining gangs, as these three did?
Call for U.S. tourism boycott
The case has triggered fury among many people in Australia.
"It is another example of murder mayhem on Main Street," former Australian Deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer told CNN's Piers Morgan.
"People thinking of going to the U.S.A. for business or tourist trips should think carefully about it, given the statistical fact you are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the U.S.A. than in Australia, per capita."
A chart in the Washington Post, using data from The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, shows Australia to have among the lowest gun-related killings in the developed world. The United States had the highest. Former Prime Minister John Howardtold CNN's Christiane Amanpour in March that gun control laws instituted after a mass shooting were responsible for the low number.
