On WBAL Radio, host Ron Smith has made a big deal about the killing of 14 year old Christopher Jones by gang members. I'm not saying it should not have been a major local news event, because it should have been, but Smith stated time and time again that it was race related because the people accused of the killing, at least the only person identified, is Black and Christopher Jones is white.
Christopher Jones was an innocent person caught in a battle between two gangs. Members of one gang saw him and attacked him, causing him to fall and hit his head. He later died. But race had nothing to do with it at all.
Now, we have a firebombing of a home that was supposed to be a retaliation. Take a look at the picture and then tell me if you think Ron Smith said anything about it.
Ron Smith and Greg Kane speak about racial issues on a regular basis. I wonder if it will be broached the next time Kane is on Smith's radio show.
