Tuesday night I told you after looking through their social media accounts, I was unconvinced that the accused killers in Duncan targeted Chris Lane specifically because he was white. 

Today some of you pointed out this tweet on James Edwards Twitter account that I missed. In it, presumably Edwards wrote "90 percent of whites are nasty #HATE THEM." Here's what you had to say about it.

Shari first: "What made this young boy to feel this way? Reading this makes me sick!"

Matt adds: "This whole thing absolutely disgusts me! What is wrong with these kids?"

And Jarrod says: "I really think it was a hate crime. If it would have been the other way around it would have all broke loose."

Jeanie writes: "I really hate that our society is this way."

Stacey says: "If a white man kills a black man you see it blasted on every news channel and see the president speaking about it on TV every other day. Where is CNN and all the other worldwide news stations at?"

They've been on it today, most of the cable news channels.

Phil apparently didn't know that or that the ugly tweet by the suspect is showing up everywhere, he wrote: "Please Kelly quit stirring people up!! There is plenty of hate already festering!"

And John was unaware of the publicity too: "Nothing like poisoning the well before the kid goes to trial now is there, Mr. Ogle?"

And Phil and John need to look back at my commentary from Tuesday. I have not been fanning the flames.
