Why do people try and make it about race? The poor white have been mistreated just as much as the poor [insert whatever minority here]. It's not about color, the poor people get crapped on the most, because they are likely too poor to hire a lawyer and sue, and likely not very educated on their rights in the first place. Easy targets, bullies always go after the easy targets. I look white, and I have been targetted by police for being in "bad neighborhoods". The mentality is if you are in a bad neighborhood, you live there, or are there to buy drugs, so either way you are up to no good. "Trailertrash" white folks are spit on just as much as the ghetto minorities, both by cops, and the rest of society.

The point being that when it is happening to white middle class, it gets exposed more. More exposure. Whereas, with minorities it either goes ignored or assume the minority deserved it in some way or another. This ERASES the race card!
It's being reported now on CNN isn't it?
