Yes, it was a murder involving black and white, but the colors were in the wrong order, so you’ll probably not see “Shorty’s” friends burning their neighborhoods down or the story being blasted across the nation’s news.

But what you won’t see for sure is President Obama or Eric Holder giving a damn about the brutal beating to death of one of America’s finest.

ww3vetIn a packed courtroom in Spokane, Washington, the many friends of the late “Shorty” Belton watched 17-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard plead guilty plea t0 the August 2013 beating death of the 88-year-old WWII vet.

This presents a complex situation for Al Sharpton and the rest of the face pimps in America. What to do?

Of course the answer is easy. Nothing.

88-year-old Delbert Belton, a World War II veteran who survived the battle of Okinawa but was killed in a robbery outside a Washington state bar in 2013.

Delbert Belton died after two teens jumped him in a parking lot, police say.

Kinard pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in exchange for two lesser charges being dropped. He faces a standard sentence to 20 to 27 years in prison when he is sentenced at a later date.

Adams-Kinard and Demetruis Glenn were both 16 when they were charged with severely beating Belton in his car on Aug. 21, 2013, during a robbery. The veteran died of his injuries the next day.

Prosecutors were not able to charge Adams-Kinard with aggravated murder — a charge which would would have carried a life sentence — because there’s little evidence that Adams-Kinard meant to kill Belton.

Although, they’re probably lucky to be alive themselves because last year, the two teens, then 16-years of age, were being targeted by the Aryan Brotherhood in the Northwest.

The white supremacist group placed a $10,000 bounty Kenan Adams-Kinard and Demetrius Glenn, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review.

The boys say they beat Belton after a crack cocaine deal gone bad. Shorty died days later. Prosecutors call the beatdown a robbery that ended in murder, but not a hate crime.
