A 78-year-old Ohio man says he was a victim of a hate crime when he was severely beaten by group of youths -- who allegedly said "this is for Trayvon," referring to the unarmed black Florida teen killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

"[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon ... Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]," the boys are quoted as saying in a police report cited by the Toledo Blade.

The DNC and race pimps will not stand up for us.

And they know we will never do anything.

“But now, Mr. Watts says he plans to buy a gun and obtain a permit to carry it.

“What happened to me … down here on the corner, that changed my perspective on humanity,” Mr. Watts said.”

Hello, brick wall of reality.
I didn’t see you standing there.

Best to take care of business at about 200 yards, if possible.

I hate to see messes up close.

In some of these cases a flame thrower with the tanks carefully concealed inside a plain backpack would have a lasting impression...

Anti mob violence laws disproportionally effect minorities, so they should be illegal. /sarc

“This will not end well. Democrats are setting back race relations a century.”

“Relations” have been on a downhill grade since the mid-sixties.

Regardless of the facades painted by the media and elites, they aren’t getting better.

We are talking about totally divergent cultures with very little that is bridgeable between them.

What circumstances or actions do you honestly believe might change this?

It’s only a matter of time before a group of black thugs assaults the wrong guy and he fills them full of holes. I can already hear the race pimps screaming racism when it happens. They would be demanding this old guy be put to death if he had a gun and used it in self defense.

You are 100% correct. I lived in a fully integrated neighborhood back in the 50s and 60s, and we simply did not have these kind of problems.

A young black man would no more beat up an old white man for no reason than if it were the other way around. It was just common decency.

Granted, people didn't go to the same churches, the same bars, they didn't date the same girls, or even swim in the same pools. But when they were on the street together going about their regular business, they treated each other with some amount of respect. It was a live and let live world from what I observed.

Was there racial discrimination? Hell yes there was. I saw it. Blacks did not have the same opportunities as whites.

The laws were passed ending all of that crap, and those wounds should have been well healed by now, except for the fact that an entire government sponsored race bating industry lead by the likes of Jackson and Sharpton have made millions of dollars picking scabs and insuring that racial wounds and hatred continues while nearly destroying the very people they pretend to support.

We have lost ground from the 1960s, not gained ground.

Thug the vote.

Obama’s brownshirts have their marching order.

And to think Charles Manson is still imprisoned for allegedly trying to start a race war while Obama’s pal Billy Ayers roams freely on the public dollar.

What I can't figure out is , if Charley wanted to start a race war, why did he kill a bunch of white people, with a group of white people?

The way Bugliosi tells it (he also alleges that G.W.Bush is a murderer for the Iraq War and should be prosecuted), they stole one of the wallets and were going to drop it off in Watts or someplace to pin the crimes on black people because the Beatles told them to in the White Album (allegedly).

Bugliosi needed a criminal conspiracy scenario to link Charles Manson to the crimes since he was not present in the crime scenes.

Jeremiah Wright and many a wicked iman should be on death row for the violent actions of THEIR followers too.

Yet, according to the article, that isn't sufficient evidence to file hate crime charges?

It's past time hate crime laws were challenged in court and overturned since they obviously aren't applied equally.
