Outrage meter? Busted.
Rev. Jesse Jackson always has his handy race-warfare arsenal ready to weave a narrative of inequity, privilege and systemic injustice. Well, at least when the victim is black and all alleged perps are white (or “white Hispanic”).

Oh, sure, Jackson is “praying” for the family of Chris Lane, the 23-year-old native of Australia allegedly gunned down in Oklahoma by three teens who said they were “bored and decided to kill somebody.” But when it comes to this case of violence, his outrage is stuck on frowny face. All we need is a Jim Carrey emoticon to see just how frowny he is.
Laura Ingraham and others wondered if Al Sharpton, President Obama and Jesse Jackson would offer comment on this case. We now have at least part of that answer.

@RevJJackson "frowned upon"?? Bit more than that, don't you think?

@RevJJackson But I guess you aren't "Outraged" and won't be marching over it huh?

But back to important stuff:
5 conservatives on the Supreme Court weakened the Voting Rights Act. Conservative governors are pushing to constrict the vote.
