LIFE IN OBAMA’S POST-RACIAL AMERICA: Teens charged with murdering WWII veteran Delbert Belton plead not guilty. “The two teenage boys, 16, charged with beating to death Delbert ‘Shorty’ Belton, 88, as he crossed a parking lot at a Washington club entered not guilty pleas on Friday. The judge set the trial for Demetrius Glenn and Kenan Adams-Kinard for November, The Associated Press reported. . . . The crime sparked national outrage for its seeming randomness — and also because the suspects are black, the victim, white, and many wondered why noted civil rights activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson didn’t condemn the incident with the same level of furor they did in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.”
