See video here:
Two stories have been filled on this and the second one contradicts the first(big surprise/s). Second one alleges that the fight is NOT racially motivated (Another big surprise/s). Both stories here.
Attacks on whites by blacks are extremely rare and certainly never racially motivated. Right?
I wonder who was making the video, and how it got to the media?
Might be what has already been suggested, or it might be neighborhood residents fed up with hoodlums.
The attack on the boy--based only on the video--is no more, and no less, racist than the Rodney King beating by police. You aren't going to consider that beating racist, are you?
You see a light skinned boy being beat up by dark skinned boys, and then from what you see, it is racially motivated?
But if you see a dark skinned man being beat up by light skinned men, then what you see is not racially motivated?
Rodney King's beating was not racist.
This boy's beating might be racist, but there is too little information.
It is not at all apparent or obvious that this was a racist attack.
“Wonder what it could be since the press doesn’t even blink in hesitation when releasing classified information.”
Probably just more footage of the assault that makes the thugs look even more thuggish, and the victim in worse condition.
Gimme a break.
The photos of the dead soldier being dragged through the streets was not too “graphic to show”. Wait, let me retract that.
Time Magazine saw fit to airbrush his exposed genitalia. It offended some of their sensibilities.
Oh good grief.
The belief of a significant number of Californians is that if Rodney King hadn’t been black, he wouldn’t have been so severely beaten.
“The photos of the dead soldier being dragged through the streets was not too graphic to show. Wait, let me retract that.”
Many of us are probably thinking the same thing. They didn’t show more because it’d be Un-PC to make black youths look too thuggish, or too savage. Doesn’t fit the template and Jesse and Al might launch another protest march against the furtherance of stereotypes.
But it sure didn’t bother them to show dead soldiers in Vietnam, and they’d love to show every flag-draped casket that arrives at Dover AFB from Iraq. Of course, their motivation was very different in those cases.
Most of the posts here tend to drip with sarcasm because the accepted norm is that whites are the racists. They are the ones who commit “hate crimes” and other groups simply are not viewed in the same manner. Far too often the liberal media jump the shark when it comes to looking at situations and injecting race into their slants and inflaming tensions beyond belief. However, the black community is filled with hypocrites who will cry racism for crimes (proven, alleged or perceived), protest, organize boycotts and whatever else they can come up with but are no where to be found when the roles are reversed.
Crime is crime and each should be treated equally in my book. If you beat up without some provication (self defense) then the reasons don’t matter do they?
If I understand you correctly, beating someone is not a sign of hate, but calling them names is.
Reminds me of the old joke that Baptists won’t have sex standing up, because it could lead to dancing.
No really! Seven white kids beating a lone black kid would be greeted with:
“Well it doesn’t mean anything. I didn’t hear the N word so it must be just a fight.”
Al Sharpton & Jesse agreed....
That's because it's not a fight, it's a beatdown!
I guess your belief in an abstract brotherhood exceeds the reality in which most find themselves trapped.
A gang of black punks could call me a cracker, honkey, white devil, etc. all day long, and I wouldn't really care as long as they didn't beat the crap out of me.
But you claim you can find "you could find plenty of racist attacks" by whites on blacks; now you have a chance to back up that claim.
How long will it take Al and Jesse to rush to the defense of the thugs who did this beating, I wonder.
“..... they have no fear of the justice system....”
here’s the way the system worked when I lived outside Baltimore.
Option 1....the black Democrat state’s attorney’s office couldn’t get the thug to trial within 180 days of arrainment so the punk walked.
Option 2....the punk does get to trial but the black Democrat court system can’t find evidence or witnesses so the punk walks.
Option 3.....the punk is tried and all witnesses have amnesia because in the last trial the key witness and her child were shot to death in a home invasion....her girl friend who happens to be visiting gets it too...again the punk walks because of the pervasive “Don’t Snitch” campaign on the mean streets of Urban America.
