Seems like justice is being pursued in those cases. It also seems like in that 1st video you posted the local MSM is calling it exactly what it is, a hate crime. So I'm not sure what your point is.
If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, theRev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions. . . .
The civil rights activist and syndicated television show host said he will elaborate on this plan Saturday. "I will speak about how the National Action Network will move to the next level if Zimmerman isn't arrested,"
Sharpton said, who founded the organization.
The lynch mob didn't like that decision, so they scream louder and call for blood.
That is not "justice", it's a decided lack thereof. It's an attempt to override justice and force it to bend to the will of the lynch mob.
This Discussion of Race it self is One of the Key Reasons why Racism refuses to Die!
As long as Humans still consider each other Different simply because our skin color is a different we will never Get past this idiotic way of thinking.
We are all cut from the same Cloth (So to speak) We all Have Issues, Stories (Both good & Bad), When will we ever find it in our hearts to Love Each other Simply because We know in our Hearts we are all searching for the same thing in life! (Happiness).

The problem is that there are a lot of black individuals, who are not willing to take responsibility for the levels of violence in their own nature.

I must respectfully disagree with a few posters here. Black people killing other black people is the order of the day. It is far more prevalent. I don't worry about some random white guy robbing me or engaging in gunplay...I'm black, and in certain places, I keep an eye out for black guys...just the way it is when you're in certain areas. And I would really like to point out that the black people that perpetrate these crimes DO NOT represent MOST black people. They usually come from poor neighborhoods, poor parenting, very limited education, PARTLY due to underfunded, poor curriculum inner-city schools. I was fortunate not to have that type of upbringing. Seriously, most black people are not criminals. And when I see certain posts, it seems as if this is the consensus. As if black people are inherently violent. If that was the case, slavery wouldn't have went so one-sidedly smooth, and during the civil rights era, no blacks would have just laid there getting their skull cracked singing we shall overcome. Just saying. The fact is there are idiots in EVERY race. No one race has the monopoly on that.
And one more thing, let's can all of this race crap. We're all on the same boat, and it's sinking while we argue about something as trivial as what color we are. TPTB are doing an outstanding job, no?
