Ferguson's Michael Brown 'sacrificed to racist God'

No, I did not make that up...  amidst all the lunacy surrounding the death of this thug - who was not a 'gentle giant' no matter how you try to spin it - comes this from European Times.

Professor Says Mike Brown Sacrificed to Racist God

27 November 2014

According to the Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Anthea Butler, robbery suspect gentle giant Mike Brown was sacrificed to the “god of white supremacy."

Butler imbues her diatribe against a racist white America with religious overtones:

No one should be surprised that Darren Wilson was not indicted by the grand jury. Prosecutor Robert McCulloch played the role of Pontius Pilate, washing his and Darren Wilson’s hands of impunity, while the sacrifice, Michael Brown, was deemed worthy of death because in Wilson’s words “he look[ed] like a demon.” Wilson even uses the sacred instrument to complete his sacrifice to the god of American Whiteness: the gun.

It is not clear if Butler considers other rights guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to be sacred instruments used for nefarious and racist means by “the god of American Whiteness,” or if this is limited to the Second Amendment.....

Why not?  An academic says this, so it must be true, right?  Not so much..

The insanity continues.
