“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?”

From wikipedia: “The incident raised a public outcry among those who believed it was a racially motivated and gratuitous attack.” “...in the black community of South Central Los Angeles) the acquittal in a state court of the four defendants, charged with using excessive force, provided the spark that led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots.”

Clearly many blacks considered it to be a racist beating.

On the day the Rodney King verdict came in as not guilty, I was in Charlotte SC for a wedding. I stopped to ask for directions and a black woman approached my car. She had a knife and tried to stab me! I had no idea why at the time.

Speaks to the mentality of a lot of folks. Makes it very hard to look at the ‘individual’ without suspicion.
