BELLEVILLE A Belleville West High School student was beaten aboard a bus on the way to school Monday, and a police spokesman said the beating could be racially motivated.
The 17-year-old victim was white and the teen assailants were black. Police released a video of the beating, which shows the victim being punched repeatedly while other students on the bus gather to watch, some cheering. It doesn't appear that the victim did anything to provoke an attack and tried only to defend himself. Police said it all unfolded in a five-minute span.
The victim was trying to find a seat and was told by two students he could not sit next to them, police said. When he did sit down, one teen tried to push him out of his seat then began grabbing the victim's neck and punching him in the face.
The victim eventually returned to his seat, but another student began taunting him a few minutes later. The victim was then struck in the face.

Those are interesting points, but by asking us to prove a negative, you have essentially negated whatever the thrust of your post was.
Sorry! You lose!
Thank you for playing!
Try again later!
I wonder if Obama’s going to make any off the cuff remarks on this one. As for myself, aren’t public schools great? This is what we must be sending our kids to school for!
If this would have been a bus full of whites cheering on as a black kid was viciously beaten, for no reason, every single television news station would be covering this 24/7 for the next 5 days.
News satellites trucks would be surrounding this school.
And the white kids would be facing extremely serious criminal charges.
Why don’t you ride the school bus and see what happens to you? What would call the results?
I read that link awhile ago...Chilling
At some level, my students understand
the same thing. One day I asked
the bored, black faces staring back
at me. What would happen if all the
white people in America disappeared
We screwed, a young, pitch-black
boy screamed back. The rest of the
I have had children tell me to my face
as they struggled with an assignment. I
caint do dis, Mr. Jackson. I black.
There is no such thing as a hate crime. Stop using Orwellian language. It is the lingo of the enemy.
Come on, people...Assault is assault, regardless of the motivation. If the victim is Jewish and the assailant is anti-semite, it’s still just assault. The attacker is a scummier individual for being a bigot, but as Karnage points out, falling into the trap of hate crime political correctness is unbecoming a conservative.
The Anglo American is in the process of being vanquished. A conquered people must learn that the conquerors can be rough; i.e. insults, whippings, beatings etc. There even will be the killing of whites for the amusement of blacks; i.e. The O. J. Simpson killings; the horrific killings in Tennessee come to mind. Remember what the Gaul said to the Roman “Woe to the conquered!”
I am a mid 80’s graduate of Belleville West High School and have a couple of siblings who graduating in the 90’s.
Some background info:
1) Belleville is mostly white,E. ST Louis is 98% black and they have ALWAYS had a low level racial loathing for each other.Both are heavily democrat cities.
2) In the early 90’s, many E.St.Louis families fled to Belleville to escape the ghetto hell and were followed by the same ghetto trash that tormented them in E.St Louis.
3) Their children began to attend the local schools and racial tensions began to accelerate.
4) The school district and the local media(Belleville News/Democrat) refused to acknowledge any of it like good democrats will do.
5) The good little democrats of Signal Hill and other wealthier neighborhoods of Belleville just gated their communities, sent their kids to Altoff or other private schools and left the simmering racial tensions for the poor whites to endure.
6) My siblings said Belleville West in the early and mid 90’s had a lot of unreported black on white crime.
7) What that video shows is quite common in MANY areas of the country that the media REFUSES to acknowledge.
8) Ironically, I went to a racially mixed high school in Montgomery Alabama before I attended Belleville West and their was very little tension there. The faculty, both white and black would not tolerate any crap from anyone.
9) In my travels, I have discovered the biggest racial incidents seem to take place north of the mason-dixon line.
Here’s the deal, tho’:
If the war every goes truly “hot” and white people decide they have had enough, the black population is going to be in a world of hurt.
It sounds cold, but blacks who decide to act like knuckleheads have benefitted greatly from a white populace that still adheres to the rules of a civilized society. The day the adherence to those rules go out the window, angry black people are in for the shock of their lives.
Good for your son. But I am surprised he didn’t get jumped by all of them. Back when I was in school you always wanted to make sure someone had your back if you were going to get into a fight. And it wasn’t just black thing. I remember one day I was playing basketball somewhere and some white punk kept fouling me. I said something about it. He and his white friends started to run their mouths. I decided to leave. On my way to my car one of them threw a ball at me. Just got the heck out of there. I could have taken one of them, but not 4 of them.
This Texan thinks maybe it’s time to play “cowboys and .......”
