I'll just say, living in Texas, this is still like the Jim Crow south at times. I live in Austin, which is highly liberal, so I make it off ok out here. When I'm traveling to say Houston and I stop in a small town, you would've thought the devil himself showed up. I get followed in stores, harassed, been called a n*gger, all the while I'm a respectable young male. I don't sag, I wear my hat forward, hell, I wear Sperry's most of the time. Being black in America will always have its connotations, you can't deny the truth.

Attacking anyone is terrible, for any reason.
And while this attack is terrible, and the attackers should get a harsh charge, I'd like to see public hanging come back. The truth is black racial terrorist mob attacks against whites happen at an alarming rate. And to show the anti-white racism of the system, the attackers are hardly ever convicted of a hate crime, yet the honky attackers are always quick to get that charge. We have a recent local attack where I live. This old sick guy on chemo, was beat down by a mob of black racial terrorists, and now the guy in in a vegetative state. And remember Reginald Denny? And look at all the white bus drivers that are attacked by BRT's(black racial terrorists), and that young white kid that was set on fire. And the Jena attacks, where all the supporters of the BRTs came to praise crime and glorify hate, and the media played it like it was the honkies fault. If we had a nation that gave a darn about it's people and safety, there's be special BRT squads to squash this scourge in the nation.

Part of the problem is people like you who try to trivialize or minimize the problem. The guy tells of some of his life experiences and you blow him off.

That sucks, but if it were to happen to a white guy...same thing, except it wouldn't be such a big deal.
its a very tragic event, and racism should not be around in this day and age.
saying that, he does have a point, if it were the other way round it would still be murder but the words 'racist attack' would not make any headline
That's like asking "which racist black person was running around assaulting only whites?"

"Why must so many in this thread turn this into a "black people do stuff too" thread? I don't understand why you can't just comment on the OP??"
Unfortunately you opened the door for all that.
You asked the question. "Show me when you ever see this happening to a white person?"
Which is just ignorant imo. It happens to ALL people. No matter what race you are, there are gonna be people (I use the term people loosely) that are gonna hate other people just because of thier skin color.
I mean aren't we past all that yet?
Your question lit the match that started the whole argument. You derailed your own thread unfortunately.
Bottom line people are people no matter what thier skin color, and there are good and bad people ,makes no difference what race, right now that haven't EVOLVED enough yet to look past skin color and see others just as human beings and judge them on thier acts, and not thier skin color.

To be prosecuted as a hate crime, there has to be evidence that the crime was indeed racially motivated. A group of white guys can beat down and murder a black guy, and if they aren't saying any racial slurs, or were caught by witnesses stating before hand, how they hate n!ggers and were gonna kill one, or afterward saying similar things, it will be hard to prosecute as a hate crime.
It seems a lot of white Americans don't understand this. If you are robbed of your iPhone and wallet by a group of black youth, that in itself, isn't a hate crime. Now if they called you a crackafied piece of sh!t honkey, and stated that they hated the minimally melaninned pale skin that wraps the innards of your body, while they were beating and robbing you, and there were witnesses who could testify to that. Then it would be prosecuted as a hate crime. There has to be something that shows there was intent to cause harm based on your ethnicity.
