    The part towards the end of the story is downright scary ... and seems wrong IMO. Not a hate crime??? Really?

    Why do we have to go over this stuff time and time again ... sad state of affairs in some areas of the country.

    It is not even debateable that this crime is the exact same had it been a white neighborhood with white aggressors....so it's not debateable that these people should be facing hate crime charges....

    I'd feel the same way had the roles been reversed. Blacks attacking whites makes me just as upset as whites attacking blacks.

    Stupid & ignorant people make me sick.

    Yeah. The career criminal and his friends were probably poor, stupid and racist- definitely violent. These white folks in Baton Rouge were caught in a bad hood and got jumped by these losers.

    This reminds me about all of those racist criminals you post about, Harry. You know. The ones where the white guys are beating up a black guy? What's that? You can't remember posting about that? Yeah. Neither can I.

    But let's not shoot the messenger.

    Racism is bad. Really bad. And if we had Harry filtering the news, racism would look like this story and the idea of white-on-black racism would be the exception.

    Is that what you want us to believe? Does that make you feel better as a white guy?

    Good.

    Any racism is bad. The perpetrators should get punished the same way for their crime irregardless of their skin color or religion.

    This is bad, and I hate it.

    Racism is still alive, on both sides, unfortunately. Its funny, my wife and I were just talking about this subject. I'm African American and she's Puerto Rican. One of her coworkers, a white female, is married to a Columbian guy and his mother has never liked his wife. We suspect because of race issues. When she comes to visit them at home (their home is in the community next to ours), his mother won't even use the same plates that are in the house.
    She displays a true distain for her and has no issue making this known.

    I hate to see this happen. These people were, and will forever be losers. Nothing else better to do but "make fun" of people "just because". Just a family stopping for gas, not bothering anyone. Its embarassing to me, as a black male, to see this happen as often as it does. I don't care about it happening the other way, it shouldn't happen at all.

    People who judge simply on skin tone are fugged up. Put chocolate skin on me and I know I'm the same guy....but pink tone on you and you're the same guy....why people can't accept that is beyond strange.

    BTW....nice to see black women finally dating/marrying caucasian men....especially with our youngest generation. I know why it took so long and understand....still nice to see.

    We're all African-something-or-other. I hate racism mostly because I remember a time when whites and blacks actually believed that racism was near the end and it wouldn't matter as soon as the old racists were dead. One of my best friends in high school was a black kid whose parents came from Cuba. I dated his sister for 2 years My dad's best friend was a Mexican guy he went to college with. I had no idea racism would still exist in 2013, but then again, I thought we'd all have flying cars and robots and taking vacations on the moon.

    Promises, promises.

    Probably natural to wish for racism to end....but I also believe it's a waste of time & emotion....all we can control is ourselves. And even that's tough to do sometimes.

    If it ends, it ends...but my guess it won't happen in our lifetime.

    so very this...

    I resisted clicking on this thread title, as I successfully manage to do for so many horrible threads that our special contributor provides on a daily basis. But then I failed. ... I knew he was begging for feedback on this one. It's his favorite topic.

    I'll resist watching the video this time, however. Don't need to. ... I'm sure I'm not far off in imagining what's on it, based on Harry's awesome record here.

    Harry's the kind of deep-seeded "separationist" who pathologically believes he's absconds himself of the racist taint by pointing out occasions when "they" do it too. ... It's like a feed loop that he must revisit every few weeks, or he begins to feel guilty for all the feelings he's been having. ... and what better conscience-clearer than to link to youTube videos of poor people being "savage." aaah.

    can we get Kermit to snip something on this horrible thread before he goes away?

    Guess you don't mind showing your ignorance!!! Good for you!!

    The fact is, people are people and some people of every race are bad and some are good.

    You're asking the wrong person....but I would ask you what is the purpose of ANY thread on an incident of a racial attack?

    I don't see any diffence between discussing a white on black incident or black on white...do you?

    To me, they're all ugly.

    Lol, I get called "the whitest black guy" all of the time, I'm used to it. But what I do hate is when "ignorant" people say that I "talk white". Like, what the hell does that mean?

    I'm a 29 year old accountant, that enjoys jazz music, math, tucked in shirts (all of the time), and a closet full of penny loafers. Although my wife's Puerto Rican, you couldn't tell until you hear her speak Spanish. And oh yes, I also own a 5 bedroom home and all of my neighbors are white....I also vote Republican. :p Soooooo....

    I guess I do break all streotypes these days but what does that say about my race? I'm not ashamed to admit that alot of them are the way they are. To me personally, its sickening but we all have that kind of "group" within our groups. Lol!

    The problem I see right now, is that a black guy can be called the "whitest black guy"

    WTF does that even mean? People are people...black people and white people are just people who happen to have different skin color....as long as people say shiznit like the above, we will have to deal with racism.

    I'm 54 years old and have seen a lot.

    Don't think racism will go away in my lifetime....but I'm enjoying many of the changes I see. My nephews and many young caucasians emulate black pop culture. One time they jumped in car with doo-rags on their heads....they were only about 7 and 11 years old at the time and I laughed my arse off.

    Pants saggn all the time, hip-hop and all that....they don't care if it's black or white and good for them. I actually love listening to black comedians make fun of white people....went to a comedy show in Atlanta a few years ago and the comedians gave me schit....asked the woman I was with if I was "her man" (she's dark chocolate and from Africa) and my friend shook her head "no". The comedian said they'd get me later!

    Life's too serious to get upset about skin color. I actually wish I had a little more pigment myself....I go from pink to red....too much Irish in me.
