    When will attacks on white people by blacks be viewed as seriously as if the races were reversed? What is with the male employees standing around, kibitzing the attack? And I understand that although the perps have been arrested the younger is to be charged as a juvenile.

    Seems the attack has been taken seriously and the possibility of it being a hate crime being investigated. What else do you need?

    Four days and I didn't hear about this until today. I was treated to repeated coverage of some other cases that fit a "useful politcally correct narrative".

    We'll see if this is treated with as serious intensity as if the races of attacker and victim were reversed.

    I don't get it. What does that case have to do with this one?

    There are some rumors that the victim was a transgendered person. Does that make you feel better, norm?

    From the video it seems that it should be investigated as a hate crime. Sounds like that is exactly how it's being treated.

    What's your complaint then? That it hasn't been televised enough to satisfy you?

    This is the incident you are being flip about.If it happened to you I wonder what smart mouth comments you'd be making afterwards?

    Kaz,

    Your remark makes it sound like you think white people are a monolithic group in the US and that life is the same for all whites. I'm surprised and disappointed that you'd make such a remark.

    This sort of comment is hardly a surprise coming from kaz.

    It's his parents that are disappointed.

    Race war is coming? Helter Skelter? Charlie Manson?

    You know, whites are supposed to LOSE the race war. You are aware of that right?

    I wonder what proposals the likes of Sam the Sham (alongside others who are evidently appalled by this incident) have in mind, in specific referrence to the conduct of bystanders.

    Should those employees be legally obliged to take sides in disputes which don't directly concern them? Should they even be expected to intervene given the violence would then probably be directed at them?

    It seems to be a new strategy by right wingers to pretend that there is some "conspiracy" in the media to not cover certain things based on the so-called "liberal bias" in the media. This is, of course, propaganda and spin.

    If every assault of this nature had to be put on the front page of the newspaper or splattered on every news agencies web page there'd be no room for anything else. According to the DOJ:

    ■There were an estimated 806,843 aggravated assaults in the Nation in 2009.

    Very. They keep telling me how they wished I'd have grown up to be an ignorant bigot.

    So did the two girls freak out when tg white guy exposed a little more than they were used to seeing in a ladies room?

    In a triage of bigotry, what trumps who? Homophobia or racism?
