For your assinine and [seemingly] egotistical statement, here's a fact that does much to disparidge your claim. Consider the fact that we are in a majority white country run by [majority] white leaders with a majority white mentality, a majority white judicial branch, a majority of majority white communities, and you can guess which part of the courtroom the minority will be on.

I am not liking the ignorant posts in this thread. I used to hate black people to be completely honest with you. And it's not until you get to know someone personally that you can ever judge them. I used to work with this big ol black kid that looked like 50 cent or something, with his style and tattoos. BUT I was COMPLETELY AMAZED when he started talking about philosophy and Russian literature, and stuff of the sort. He didn't use drugs, like I would have ASSumed, and he was a very loving and smart person. And this guy is still a very close friend. I am so glad he came into my life.

This is what happens when our leaders both politically and in religion allow intolerance and hatred and ignorance to flourish. When something like this happens, they automatically say race this or that instead of men who raped this girl. The sick thing is that this wouldn't have gotten a blip if the men where of the same race as the girl, black white or hispanic. Our leaders have made a disfunctional country and we have alot of disfunctional people, saying and doing horribly things because it's a free country we can do what we want. And it makes sense, a dysfunctional country can breed dysfunctional people. I feel sorry for the US in some ways, because I see this country falling apart and everyone is truly to blame for it in the country. Being ignorant shouldn't be pushed as something to be striving for but they do. People say just believe in the bible and everything it says and god will fix it, he won't. If he didn't fix the problems a century ago what makes them think he will fix them in a few days. Not everyday is sunday, the rest of the week you have to live with other people and their nuances and that would require learning about them and respecting them. These men and boys who raped this girl are guilty of rape pure and simple, but they are men and boys who committed a crime. Not latin men or white men or black men but men, that happen to be black.
What scares me even more is that the fact that they will push this as black men do this and she will go into the future thinking this way. But not see that it could have easily have been a group of hispanics or whites or asians whatever, crime and atrocities happen with all people.
