Posted on 12/28/2013 8:49:32 AM PST by John Semmens
The US Department of Justice charged Conrad Barrett of Katy, Texas with a hate crime for assaulting a 79-year-old Black man and fracturing his jaw. Barrett made a video of the attack in order to see if it would make the national news.
While there have been numerous other incidents of knock-out game assaults, a few resulting in fatalities, this is the first instance in which the DOJ has become involved. In the vast majority of these other incidents the perpetrators have been young Black males.
Attorney General Eric Holder insisted that these other incidents were not analogous to what occurred in the Barrett case. A White man attacking a Black man is part of a 400-year pattern of racist abuse. The victim did nothing to warrant being bludgeoned by Barrett. The same cannot be said in these other cases. As victims of 400 years of racist abuse, the Black assailants have obvious cause for grievances against Whites. Therefore, their hate is justifiable and cannot serve as the basis for a criminal charge against these Black assailants.

Evenly applied I’m sure.
No, it’s not evenly applied, but at least we can keep the white bloodline free of these criminals.
It’s easier to spot the would be hoodlums that way.
You Bass Terd...
I started laughing and realized who the author is...
‘Civil Rights/Equal Opportunity’ in a nutshell.
Right after a black man is knocked out by a white youth and hundreds of reports of white men and women being knocked by black yutes.
Damn you John Semmons...: )
What do you expect from an avowed racist? I am of course referring to our AG.
Only if it’s a white on black hit.
To me it seems less an issue of race than of Judeo-Christian values.
lol. Of course not
Only if the “knocker” is white. I would call this instance a hate crime if all the black criminals were charged with hate crimes, but they aren’t. White people are being discriminated against by their own government.
A defense attorney should have a field day with selective prosecution and unequal treatment under the law.
Heh heh, me too. John gets me 2 or 3 times a year.
