With the senseless thrill killing of a white man in Oklahoma by bored black teenagers, where is the outrage from Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and President Obama as there was at the tragic killing and verdict in the Trayvon Martin case?

Why are these leaders being silent now when they were so vocal before? Is it that the Oklahoma case is a poor fit for their political agenda? Their silence when the circumstances are reversed speaks volumes.
