63-year-old Victor Cirello and 50-year-old Ernie Solano lived 1,892 miles apart. Cirello lived in Fayetteville, North Carolina and Solano lived in Phoenix, Arizona.
In spite of the distance, both men died late last month under similar circumstances.
Cirello was fatally shot during a robbery at Fayetteville mobile home park. Solano was shot dead outside a convenience store in Phoenix.
Both were robbery victims and both were victims of senseless homicide. Both were white men; victims of violent crimes committed by young black males.
Had two black men been senselessly murdered by white thugs, the national media coverage would be endless.
The victims were only two of a long list of white victims of violent black crime reported by local media in July, 2016.

Work was 20 years old and pregnant. A C-section was performed to save her baby daughter. Johnson was 45 years old.
The victims were white. The suspect was black.
The 54-year-old was a tenant at the Grand Oak Apartments and allegedly walked into the complex office building and opened fire on the two employees inside — Johnson and Work.
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton tells us investigators believe the two women were targeted.
“At some point in time, the defendant said to a person who was not a victim, ‘I’m not here for you, I’m not here for you,’” Leyton said. “Then fortunately 911 was called, the police arrived, one of the Grand Blanc city police officers arrived just in time to see the suspect throw something into a hedge of bushes. What she threw turned out to be the gun and we believe it’s the gun used in the murders.”
• 12-year-old Garrett Phillips is dead.
The Potsdam, New York white boy was murdered in October, 2011.
Charged for the crime is Oral Nicholas Hillary. Hillary is a black immigrant.
The crime emerged in local media in July due to advanced DNA testing that may lead to Hillary’s conviction.
[T]he prosecution has suggested that it may use low-template DNA analysis to tie Mr. Hillary to Garrett’s murder, utilizing sophisticated algorithms to determine statistical probabilities by analyzing genetic data that older methods could not interpret. In particular, the prosecution is attempting to use software developed by a New Zealand company — STRmix — on a minute sample that was scraped from one of Garrett’s fingernails and came from an unknown individual, possibly during a struggle.
Hillary was the Assistant Men’s soccer coach at St. Lawrence University from 2007-2009. He migrated to the United States from Kingston, Jamaica in 1990.
