White Middle-Schooler Beaten Unconscious by Group of Black Students
American Thinker ^ | January 23, 2012 | John T. Bennett

Posted on 01/23/2012 9:32:49 PM PST by neverdem

The story is shocking enough, even without bringing race into it: on the way to school in Ocala, FA, a thirteen-year-old girl was beaten unconscious and reportedly went into a seizure after being attacked on the school bus by a group of fellow students.

The girl reportedly was riding the bus for the first time. Someone threw a shoe at her, and she threw it back, hitting a student. That's when the beating began. At least seven students surrounded the girl, punched her, held her head to the floor by her hair, and kicked her. The bus driver pulled the bus over, stopped the beating, and then continued driving. But the beating started again, so the driver diverted to a nearby school and called officials, and the girl was taken to the hospital.

Aside from the brutality, there was another troubling fact about this crime -- a fact that predictably did not make it into the news: the attackers were black, and the victim was white. Yet, for the first few days after the attack, not a single news outlet reported on the race of the victim. Since the attack occurred, only one news item has even indirectly mentioned the victim's race. This can't be because the information was hard to come by. The Ocala Sheriff's Office responded to my inquiry about the victim's race within hours.

Many well-meaning people will ask why race matters. Violence is violence, and people are people, so why bring race into it? I sympathize with that sentiment. The trouble is that, if the races were reversed, this would be a larger story. It would be a larger story because we have a system of racial double standards -- some written, some unwritten -- that serve to conceal the reality of crimes like this...

Not a hate crime.

What did the white guy do to infuriate Holder’s people so?

The evil, soulless left is the root of all this. LBJ's great society has destroyed the black family. The result is large numbers of rabid sociopaths being bred in our inner cities.

There is a special place in H*ll where LBJ resides.

The cancer he helped spawn is destroying the foundations of our Republic.

Don't know who stole them. Maybe the same person who stole your willingness to phrase your suggestion properly.

White guilt destroyed our culture’s capacity to hold blacks responsible for their own actions. White guilt is true racism....

Typical! I have found over the years that blacks are cowards. They will never take anybody on one on one. It is always a gang of them that attacks another person.

The fact is, blacks are far more likely to commit violent crimes on whites then the reverse. Also, blacks are far more likely to commit violent crimes on other blacks then whites. It could lead one to conclude that blacks are more prone to violence then whites. But then that would be racist, so just forget I even brought any of this up.

I know this story is not true because I am told America is a white racist country, blacks are at an extreme disadvantage. Therefore it’s not possible in America that a gang of blacks could attack a white person. Why, there would be lynchings of all these blacks without trials.

Unless what we are told isn’t true.

WE need armed Marshal ls riding all of the Public Transportation. Anything that ls available to our down troden brethren should be equip-ed with an Armed ( 45 Cal Cold) Marshal. Among other things it would provide a lot of jobs, eliminate this type of crime, and people would feel safe riding on Public Trans.

The major question is “Why don’t Blacks step in to defend the innocent”? Is this generic or is this because of outside pressure? This should have nothing to do with color but of innocence vs guilty. Why do Blacks stand by when this happens?

Race has nothing whatsoever to do with this. I just want that to be perfectly clear. Crime statistics show that non-blacks are just as likely to inflict mindless violence on others.

Stop focusing on these stories because there's some really good stuff on TV right now.

Wrong! Those that are not cowards are not in gangs. The gangs come in all colors. The gangs are black, brown and white.

What I find appalling is the leadership in the Black Community and in particular The President, using the racial card day after day after day. This creates a environment of hatred and envy that causes racially motivated crime and violence.

Actually, this type of behaviour was going on when LBJ was in office. It has been over 40 years, and no one is doing anything significant about it out of fear of the 'racist' label.

I don't really care what you are.... One thing I do know however, it's pompous and rude to go on a political opinion forum like this and start picking on little bits of grammar and spelling. No matter how clever you think your little graphic is. I don't have time to check every little bit of spelling when I'm just trying to get an opinion out there.

Have a nice day.

Perhaps you SHOULD care more about spelling, grammar, punctuation and usage. These things really do help get your opinion across by not distracting your reader from it. We are then much better able to comprehend the point you’re trying to get through to us.

There/their/they’re or your/you’re or any of the myriad of mistakes made so regularly do tend to cloud the intended meaning of many posts, to the detriment of civil discourse and commentary.

Thank you in advance for reconsidering your stance!!!

You always get that kind of crap when you try to help someone with grammar or spelling.

It baffles me, really. You’d think they’d just say “thank you” and move on.

If my fly were open, I’d want someone to tell me, but when someone is making making himself look uneducated with bad grammar or misspelling, he reacts to assistance...well, as you saw here.
