First of all, the article does not specify anyone's race besides the victim. You are assuming that the suspects were black. They may have been, so
lets assume for the sake of argument that they were.
Read the facts... It does show that the victim was white and the attackers were black.
here is another link for you.
There are more sources for this news article than the one listed here on this site. if you had been smart, you might have dug more into it.
Furthermore. Why would the clip (yes the one listed in the OP that doesnt work anymore) say anything investigating wether or not this should be
considered a hate crime? I didn't assume anything. I actually read about it. The interest holds more for me than race. I'm actually from Baton
If there was no mention as to what side was white or black, the basis alone still holds to me to be a hate crime. I dont care who was what color.
it's a fact that it was two colors. As I already mentioned, why would someone say "You're in the wrong neighborhood" if it's specificaly crime
related? How would the attacker know those people aren't from that area? You obviously dont realise just how big that area is. I do... It's not
exactly a small community. It's also off the interstate and a major highway. Did you know that? Of course you would have had to read the clip to
know, but you didnt take that into consideration did you?
That is one way to interpret the events. Another would be: Someone made fun of the white guy's shirt. The white guy childishly engaged the black guy
in an argument, instead of standing firm and ignoring the ridicule like a grown man should when escorting his family. The black guy pointed out that
they were in his neighborhood, surrounded by his friends, and that the white guy was outnumbered. The white guy ignored this warning. The argument
escalated to a fight. The suspect is not innocent of a crime, but the victim is certainly guilty of stupidity. Stupidity is not a crime but, right or
wrong, it does occasionally lead to hard lessons learned.
"Wrong neighborhood" is an ambiguous term and is not necessarily a reference to the racial demographics. A gang member could use the same phrase
towards a rival gang member who is of the same race.
NO! It's the ONLY way. Why? Because it says so in the news clip. Why would you say It's an interpreted? It's stait out of the news clip.
Didn't you read it?
How do you "childishly" engage someone in an argument and not stand firm? It's the same thing. He stood up for himself. He "stood firm".
backing down and saying nothing would be the alternate. You're not making any sense. What's even more funny is that people actually stared your
Besides.. the way you just described it DOES NOT HAPPEN. lol Ask anyone from "our" neck of the woods. You'll just have to trust me. a bunch of
black guys swarming to protect their one friend from a WHITE GUY? lol That's funny right there. More like... They're all waiting to get a punch
Once again.. you didn't read the news clip, or obvously turned it around to suit whatever demented story you have put in your head. You're trying
to pull some indirect race card out of my post and you've failed. Go back to wherever you come from and pretend all you like. People from our neck
of the woods knows exactly what goes down in Louisiana. We dont make up stories to hide it and we damn sure aren't blinded by the facts of what
really goes down there.
Racism in Louisiana is just as much black on white as people assume it's white on black.... even more so. If you don't see it, then you need to get
out of the house more. I lived on the streets. I went to an all black school because I was MADE to, because of segrigation issues in that very same
city. I know exactly what went down, not just because the news said so, but because I've lived there, I know how it happens.
If you still dont believe it.. Take a trip. I'll tell you of places you can go and visit and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. hell...
I'm willing to throw money down on it. That's how sure I am.
No, it is not necessarily racially motivated. If a white drug dealer sees a rival black drug dealer working his turf and warns him with the exact same
"wrong neighborhood" phrase he is not doing it because he is black. He is doing it because he is on his turf. Not every cri......
Really? LOL!!! The guy was at a gas station! Dude.. what are you not understanding here? We are not talking about drug dealers... That has nothing
to do with the story.
give it up.. you just dont get it.
