Sometimes White Privilege Just Comes Along and SMACKS You Upside the Head

this is one of those times.

Make no mistake, this is an emotionally disturbed individual who should have been IN JAIL long ago.

the video does work, just click on the PLAY icon

I am talking about Amy Bishop, a woman, following being denied tenure at the University of Alabama -Hunstville, killed THREE PEOPLE:

Killed in Friday's shooting were Gopi K. Podila, the chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences, and professors Adriel Johnson and Maria Ragland Davis. The Chair was Indian, the other two dead are BLACK.

and left another 3 wounded.

Two of them - Joseph Leahy and staffer Stephanie Monticciolo - were in critical condition early Sunday. The third, Luis Cruz-Vera, had been released from the hospital.

Now, I don't know about Leahy and Monticciolo, but my money that Luis Cruz-Vera is Hispanic.

6 victims, and 4 of them non-White.

Do you know the small percentage of Black folks that go into the sciences, and how hard it is to find one, let alone TWO to KILL?

But, peel away the onion, and you get a darker story: this isn't the first time this woman has KILLED.

She 'accidentally' killed her ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIAN BROTHER in 1986. Charges were never filed, and now, folks going back to look at the case - the paperwork disappeared.

In 1986, Bishop shot and killed her 18-year-old brother with a shotgun at their Braintree, Mass., home. She told police at the time that she had been trying to learn how to use the gun, which her father had bought for protection, when it accidentally discharged. In all, three shots were fired: Braintree police Chief Paul Frazier said she shot once into a wall, then shot her brother, then fired a third time into the ceiling.


From the Boston Globe:

Amy Bishop, held in the slayings of three and the wounding of three on Friday at the University of Alabama Huntsville, was suspected but never charged in a 1993 attempted mail bombing of a Harvard Medical School professor.

The Boston Globe web site says Amy Bishop and her husband, James Anderson, were questioned and the home they shared searched after a package containing two bombs was sent to the home of a professor and doctor at Boston's Children's Hospital.

I'm just trying to follow the dots. I'm trying to figure out a circumstance where ANYBODY BLACK could 'accidentally' KILL THEIR SIBLING, and NOT be shown the inside of a prison for some amount of time. I'm trying to figure out a circumstance where then said Black individual would then just go onto school, and be suspected in a BOMBING, and the PREVIOUS ' accidental' shooting wouldn't come up in the database on said Black person. I tried to wrap my mind around the possibility of this Black person still being among us to the point where they'd be able to get a PhD and then begin teaching college students.

Um.....I can't see it ever happening.

Sometimes, you don't want to bring race into things, but sometimes, like I said, it just slaps you in the face, because you know, to the bottom of your gut, that no average Black person would ever get away with it.

And, don't fall for the MSM trying to push the ' she was just there to appeal her tenure and things went wrong' LIE:

HUNTSVILLE, AL -- Dr. Amy Bishop, charged with capital murder in Friday's UAH campus shootings, did not face a hearing or learn of a decision this past week regarding her tenure, campus officials said Saturday.

In fact, Bishop was denied tenure last April, said Dr. Lewis Radonovich, former provost and current vice president at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Speculation in media outlets across the country has included the theory that the shooting may have resulted from the denial of tenure. Bishop did appeal her denial, but that also had been settled.

"The decision on her appeal was certainly months ago," said Dr. Jack Fix, dean of the UAH College of Science, which includes the Biology Department where Bishop taught.

It was over. She knew damn well what she was doing when she brought the gun to the meeting.

Here are local stories about her victims that died:

Dr. Gopi Podila believed biotech to be a 'hidden gem' in Huntsville

Dr. Maria Ragland Davis 'had tons of ideas,' was excited about her research at UAH.

Dr. Adriel Johnson was a teacher in the world of Boy Scouts, science

Hey rikyrah, I'd like to ask you a question but I don't have an email address for you. Can you shoot me an email at so I can ask you something?
