I think it indicates something wrong with our minds that many of us feel that in order to say that what is happening in this video is terrible we have to qualify it with reassurances that we aren't racist.


but orkojoker,

when people preface their reactions to stuff like this with "look, i'm not racist but..." it's usually followed by "if a bunch of white dudes did that to a black guy..."

when the reaction is "how terrible! i feel so bad for that guy! those kids are mean!" there is no need to comment on the races involved.

there are definitely white apologists who feel so bad about slavery and racism that they would let black people get away with murder to ease their conscience. but there are also white people who can't stand the thought of blacks having truly equal footing in modern american society and hold up examples like this to say "if they can do it, why can't i?! why's it such a big deal if i murder ONE black guy when black guys kill SO many white guys with little to no punishment?!" it's such a tired, racist mindset. can't this video just be an unfortunate case of a bunch of YOUNG PUNKS messing with a poor little drunk GUY. not young BLACK punks messing with a poor little WHITE drunk guy?

The penis monologues comment was perhaps funniest thing I've heard all day


Anyway, here's another way of putting what Dr. Cosby said: my favorite PSA ever:

Yes

There are a lot of black guys that get robbed and beaten to death or shot in the ghetto and surprisingly I hear very little about them as well. What is going on there in the ghetto.....?

Simple test

Low income area + your skin tone being absent = bad area

If your a white dude and everyone is around is black youth, your in a bad area (for you especially)
If your a black dude and everyone is sitting on their trailer porch with a CAT hat on and chewing tobacco, your in a bad area (for you especially).

You may not be racist..congratulations...but dont be stupid in thinking there is no such thing as racism either. Poor people tend to be angry and often stupid.

However

The young black -culture- (note, culture is not their race nor mental capacity) is far more violent than most others. I blame their thug life culture. look at 30 years of role models pushing hate and materialism for this issue.

I would trust an older black man equal with a older white man...but anyone under 30 = easily influenced by ideals and trying to play a role.

Obama said in his youth before college, he started to drift into stereotyping..aka, he was headed on the "thug life' path.

I enjoy political correctness..but being PC does not mean being ignorant of cultural flaws.

Abandoned people. drugs and culture is the issue. When your poor, you are already a bit hopeless..mix that with a get happy quick fix (drugs) and a potential to get out of the ghetto (selling drugs)...add in all the role models singing about how you need to get rich or die trying, and your worth is how many gold teeth you have (see my grill) and you got a very dangerous premise for the youth...especially young black urban types.

what the hell is with this spate of racially inspired top stories?

Do the morons get off on beating a dead horse? While you bicker between the two races, Black AND White scumbags on wall street are stealing your money daily. They then set you up with this BS so you can vent your frustrations and feel like you have done something about the build up of pressure from your inability to get off your collective asses and change the government.

I have said this before and i'll say it again, the human race deserves everything that it had coming to it. Most of the majority are just too easy to manipulate.

Whoever posted this video obviously doesn't know the slightest thing about the hood. If you're not from the block, don't walk on the block. Color wasn't the motive, you're definitely from the suburbs if you for one second thought it was. If it had been a Black or Latino male not from the block, they would have been killed. The White man got off easy.

I'm from San Francisco and some may think the city is gay but it is basic knowledge not to walk down certain streets at night, the media wouldn't even care if this happened because it is such basic knowledge and it is so simple to understand that a white person cannot walk down certain streets at night.

Come on people. We can't keep doing this. We can't keep feeding the frenzy. The result is the MSM making you do exactly what they want you to do. We all know how the real world works... Was the Martin story blown out of porportion? yes, but we expect that from the MSM. The only reason it's bigger than it should be and didn't go away in 2 days like 98% of other MSM stories is because of race. We all know Sharpton and the like are opportunists. But purposely searching and posting and getting 100+ stars and all the attention on OPs like this are part of the problem. It doesn't solve anything. Don't fall for the propaganda!!!

This is the system that we live in... the media, the military, the propaganda, the corporatism. There will be nothing you can do to bring it down as it is right now. Society will need to collapse before the system gets brought down, it's that strong.

But on issues like this, be the bigger man!

you know how many assaults, beatings and robberies happen a day across the planet? lots of them have no media coverage. they only pick and choose the ones they want to feature to create something out of it. they picked Trayvon for a reason, to stoke racial tensions and distract people from whats really going on. Its the oldest trick in the book.

People are talking about hoodies rather than talking about whats really going on. We need to be strong and not let our emotions be manipulated by the BS media. We are not sheeple, use your own judgement, think critically and dont get swept away by emotion. Divide and conquer, works every time...if we let it!


I'm with ya!

I'm getting so sick and tired of hearing about hoodies, skittles, and iced-ted that I don't know what to do..

and then seeing legislators and news anchors wearing the hoodies....uggghhh

its so ridiculous.

Tha laughing and ridicule coming from those young guys who ought to know better than to kick a person already down is shocking and unacceptable. You people here who are so politically correct, and/or racist(and you know you are) on a subtle level and hiding behing the liberal mindset, that you believe it is ok to kick and rob and beat and ridicule a drunk man for any reason are sadly unspiritual and inhumane, though you think there is a reason for it, the white guy must have done something evil is your mindset. Where are all the people who hate cops for beating up people without reason?
Oh, and before I forget, while driving through a very very large city I saw some people holding signs and protesting the Trayvon thing, and then this morning someone told me it was leaked that some people were paid 10 bucks a piece to hold signs and protest. Amazing what 10 bucks will do in this crazy world.
While I am on this train of thought, one wonders why someone would even pay them to protest. What would someone have to gain by stoking more racial tensions in the big cities? Oh yes, I also heard something about how TPTB plan to shut off cell phone service if there is trouble in the cities. That must mean riots and looting if something bad goes down, just like Katrina. Everyone remember that?

If what happened in that video is real and not a construct of the likes of breitbart.com then it's horrible for sure. But the OP's motivations for posting this video are clear.
Where is the story to go along with this video?
When did it happen, did the victim file a police a police report?
Did cops show up the scene and interview anyone?
Did someone come forward and say yeah I did this, it was self defense and then the police say oh ok we believe you carry on?
Did the victim's family demand answers from police for a month and continually meet brick walls?

It took almost a month for the Trayvon Martin case to go viral on the internet and for people to start getting active about it, it is only because it went viral and demands for justice got bigger and spread nationally that the MSM picked up the ball and ran with it.

oh if a white guy gets beat and robbed and kicked and ridiculed and laughed at while drunk on the street it has to be a doctored video of Breitbart.

What was a white guy doing wandering around in a ghetto for in the first place. He wasn't too smart but he is still alive. I wouldn't be there, most sensable people from any race would avoid it. The Cops were probably just shaking their heads.

We need to know more about this white guy..maybe he deserved it.
Did he have tattoos? Quick, someone check to see if he has pics of himself looking all bad ass.
Maybe he sold some plant to friends, etc.

I mean, if we are reversing roles, let the character assassination of the victim begin, right?

Pretty simple rule of ATS:
Listen to AM talk radio neo-cons. Whatever they are discussing will end up being top stories and almost word for word diatribes at any given moment.

The facts are simple. Trev was racially profiled by Zim. That directly lead to the events that left someone dead. I don't understand why the right is deciding to go down the path of defending profiling, and doing it by character assassination of the victim, but meh, thats their right.

Now they are trying to find anything remotely close to show its ok to be racist, as everyone else is kind of mindset..who the hell knows. Social conservative mindsets wants to continuously be a victim to allow for their hate to surface. (figured since the "liberal" mindset was blamed..I might as well counter it with equal meaninglessness)

I got jumped in the hood when I was young. missed the bus from school and so decided to walk home...which unfortunately brought me right through a nasty area. Yes, it was a group of black youths, yes I was simply minding my own business when they approached..
I ran after a few swings connected and luckily a cop was nearby..the group scattered.

Here is the thing...it didn't surprise me that they jumped me...young black idiots...what did shock me is when the cop started speaking racist about blacks to me, thinking it would perhaps cheer me up...it actually disgusted me.

Racism is the area of the very young, or incredibly stupid...even as a teen I understood this...the young kids that jumped me fell into the young idiots..the cop however went from respected adult to dumbass hick in a half second. Authority figures are supposed to be upstanding men and women, not a bunch of ignorant kids with a gun.
