Roland Martin decided to do some unjustified race-baiting by asking why people who cared about Terry Schiavo aren’t as vocal about the case of Jahi McMath in California. However, Martin had a little trouble with McMath’s first name, as evidenced by this deleted tweet:
If you’re going to insinuate that you care more than others, it’s probably a good idea to do extra proof-reading to get the subject’s name right before publishing.
Martin published a tweet with the correct spelling of McMath’s first name:
