More “Civil Rights” Action From the Right: “Trayvon a N****R

Yesterday I posted about a “My Fox” channel in Orlando, Florida referring to armed neo-Nazis who are “patrolling” the streets of Sanford, Florida (where Trayvon Martin was killed) as a “civil rights group.”  (Fox has since taken the post down but I know their sleazy ways so I took a screenshot.  Here it is.)

Something happened this morning that Fox would probably also define as the act of a “civil rights group” if they had the guts to report it at all.  I checked both FoxNews and FoxNation and I don’t find a thing, but here it is:

An electronic road construction sign near Dearborn, Mich. displayed a racial slur early Monday morning, targeting a Florida teenager who was fatally shot in February.

The sign referenced Trayvon Martin who police said was killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in self-defense. It has yet been decided if Zimmerman will be charged in the shooting.

The Michigan Department of Transportation sign, which read “Trayvon a N*****,” is located on Interstate 94 near Addison Street, west of downtown Detroit, WDIV reports. MDOT said that the sign was hacked just after midnight. Passersby noticed the hacked sign about 1 a.m. and called police who said they received numerous calls about the incident.

Michigan State Police troopers responded and contacted a sign supervisor to fix the message.

The control box on the sign was unlocked and the keyboard used to write messages was missing.

When I hear about something like this the first thing that comes to mind is how wingers insist that liberals and progressives are the haters.  That’s why a blackout on news like this by the likes of Fox is significant.  What they don’t report is as important as what they do report.

Oh, and if I were an African-American living in the United States right now, I would be getting more and more nervous.
