I am going to agree with you on that.

Gangs recruit anyone they can. Don't matter if you are blue.

Im tired of this Administration, those in power, not addressing the real issues. There are so many youth that cant find jobs. Unemployment for black youth is downright embarrassing. You think these youth would be involved with crap like this, if they had a job, or a better outlook on life?

Its a damn shame this Administration, past Administrations have failed our youth. Its the truth, and no one can tell me otherwise.

He's obviously accepted as black. I don't know if colour has a lot to do with it.

Blacks in Australia, Aboriginals are often white, and 'black' is a way of life, that they feel their roots, some a lot, so colour isn't supposed to matter... I have a mate like that who's white, he said racism against him was worse than he's ever seen.

So the black community by your definition is entirely determined by a handful who ramble loud enough for long enough and seek the cameras and the publicity? Do you have a large group of individuals confused with a small set of talking heads? It looks as if you're calling every black person in america a phony hypocrite. If this is not what you mean you should be more clear...because, that is how what you wrote reads.





Who are the leaders of the white community? Would Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh qualify as accurate models of the average white american? Is Ted Nugent a white figurehead, simply because I can hear him talking from time to time on the news.....is he who I should base my prejudices on the white community on? Or should I remember that it makes no sense to base on and make statements of the quality and character of a large group of people by picking a situotionally suitable few out of a whole bunch?


What the hell is this nonsense ?

Really what ?

One group identifies themselves by the color of their skin.

The other group doesn't give a crap about what color skin is even though 'national' leaders love to demagogue they do.

One group is constantly reminded that someone is oppressing them, and constantly reinforces that demagoguery.

That is what is being talk about by those so called leaders.

Neither one is even close to be comparable to each other,.

Those people who prey on 'racisim' are the very people who keep perpetuating it for no reason other than to divide and conquer for political benefit.

This is why racism will never die in this country until people tell their so called 'leaders' to go stuff it.

Well that was a list of generalizations. Hard to follow as well. Could you edit so I could maybe have a chance at understanding what you're trying to get across. If you want to skim the posts in this thread to get a sense of the tone and trend of it then do so and let me know how it is generally coming across when objectivity is applied. Racism won't die when there are still so many people with racist tendencies whether they identify it as such or not. When a thread like this can go on for pages before someone points out how it's entirely filled with poster produced racist undertones and that borderline hate parties like this are commonplace on ATS is not a good sign.

Well said, everyone agreed that something should be done but disagree on what must be done and I say take what works and repeat it, from my POV living in Japan, America seems scary as hell and every time I mentioned my desire to return home in earnest I am told to stay away by friends and family members,I often wonder if it's really as scary as it looks the anger the politics the economic, is America worth investing into and I am not talking just money here..but glimmers of hope make me want to ignore them.

Looks like racial tensions are really ramping up in the US.

Have you seen the New Topics Page?

89-year-old War Vet beaten to Death by two Black Teens

Its currently all over the news.

S is about to Hit-the-fan.......................a fan that is fuelling a race war.

As an Aussie, I am appalled at this crime, but it will NOT stop me from visiting my friends in the US one bit. Racism is alive and well in my part of the world and the hatred towards Aboriginals is virtually mainstream.

I've been reading various posts of this thread to my husband, as I read through this thread.

I love this site for this, keeping us focused and talking about real issues in our country and the world. Otherwise, we'd likely just be rotting our brains away in our down time just watching mindless, senseless entertainment.

But I like what my husband has to say on this matter and thought it worth repeating,

'I don't care what color your skin is, the ignorance just needs to die."

Wishful thinking I know, hoping we can eradicate ignorance, but a better starting point I think, than separating ourselves in society and pointing the finger at one another, or rather giving each other the finger.

Now I wonder....
If the Aussie kid had a gun and shot and killed one of those dirtbags IN SELF DEFENSE, would those saying this WAS NOT a racial crime say the same thing, or would they be screaming Trayvon Martin all over again???

I'm not saying what they did was right. I'm saying what they did isn't unexpected. When you're still treated like dirt even after a century, you begin to feel you have a right to take some of what they have. You look at that baby and you think, "Demon spawn. When they grow up big enough to talk, the first word out of their mouth will be the N word. And when they're old enough to handle a gun, their father son bonding time will end with a bullet in my head." Just like your bother, or your sister, or your mama who got raped and killed.

And that's when you decide you won't give that little baby a chance to screw you and your family over like all the other white folks. That's when you decide to get the drop first. Again, I'm not saying it's right. I'm saying when it's war, all kinds of messed up stuff happens. And it really changes your perspective. You don't have to be afraid of walking outside because of your skin color. You don't have to be afraid of getting killed because of racism. You don't have to be afraid of your fellow man deciding to have some fun with you.


Thank you for that lesson in personal racism. I truly cannot understand how a person with views that are not racist could contrive such utter trite as that. You, friend, are the reason why racism in America is alive and well. You look to the past for justification. Completely ignorant of the fact that the peoples in Europe and the Americas abolished slavery more than half a decade before the people in Africa. Ethiopia practiced slavery until 1922. Yet, I am sure you are unaware of that nauseating fact. It was only with the intervention of Great Britain did Ethiopia abolish slavery.

But go on ahead spreading your racist filth. In your eyes the "white man" and only the white man can do evil. If we Africans do evil we easily ignore it because the evil done unto us was so much worse.

Simply pathetic. Go and play your fine-tuned stringed harp elsewhere. Your heart tugging tactics are ineffective against those that know the truth.

Racism only becomes a crime when someone is injured or killed. In the case of Trayvon, Zimmerman was defending himself. In this case, it was cold blooded murder. And yet, where is the publicity? I honestly love how Australia claims this to be a gun issue when it's obviously a race issue. The man could have been killed with a baseball bat and it still would have been a race issue.

I frankly don't know how to dispute this line of thinking. Not because I think it's right, but because it's so out of touch with reality. I've posted the numbers, but you say that the numbers are skewed because when a black person commits a hate crime against a white person, they're not charged as such(?), or only rarely charged as such, while white people are always charged as such (?).

So the numbers are wrong because they're skewed to be 'PC'. The numbers are evidence, you're not presenting any, just an opinion already skewed by your belief that white people are being targeted willy nilly by racist black people.


1)".. wasn't the shooter a white kid? And his two black friends? I recall seeing a slideshow featuring their mugshots - two black kids and a white kid, with the white kid having the most severe charges (murder along with discharging a firearm, while the black kids had just the murder charge)" -you

You should look further into things before you post and have to edit your post 3 times.

2) "This was less a racist act than another tragic thrill killing." -You again

No, you're wrong again. this was a racist killing. Again, you should research more before posting.

3) "I didn't say that racism was hilarious. Let's not distort my words. I said that the hysterics displayed my some of by fellow white people is hilarious - white people still, at least for a little while, run the world." - You 3 times

Why don't you walk through Chester, Pa, or Camden or parts of Philly and then tell me who runs the "world". Your thoughts are flawed by trying to encompass the entire "world". You need to get out more.

4) "but just because the guy is a racist doesn't necessarily mean that the dead man was targeted because of his race" you more times

Yes it is.

5) "We could go back and forth all day posting competing cases of racist attacks. White on black, black on white, and every other colour on every other colour. I'm not sure what exactly that would prove, except that a minority of people of every race are violent, racist morons."

Trying to save yourself

6) "ALL racism 'keeps happening.' It's unstoppable. Racism isn't something you can effectively legislate against and eliminate. It's an idea, and a certain number of people in any population, regardless of race, are going to take it and run with it. "

Justifying the crime.

Monger, if you want to battle about this topic, I'm down. I live between Philly, Chester, Upper Darby and Camden. If you think for one second black on white crime is miniscule, I have a lesson for you. And, my local paper every day has black hurting whites, it's ran for one day and gone. If the opposite was to happen it goes national. "So the numbers are wrong because they're skewed to be 'PC'. The numbers are evidence, you're not presenting any, just an opinion already skewed by your belief that white people are being targeted willy nilly by racist black people. " - You again.

Don't tempt me to post videos as evidence.

Is it a " Race" issue when one of the kids is or appears to be white?? ..and should it matter I said for the thousandth time folks were mainly upset because of the apparent cover-up by local authorities.

I'm more concerned about the cover up of the media, not to engage in this story because it was black on white and not white on black. That is my main issue here, that blacks can do no wrong, never racist in the least, and every time, no matter how rare it is, that a white man targets a black man, it's nation-wide racism. That is the sickening part, and agenda, that I have serious issues with.

As an Aussie I am sickened that a young kid from my home town of Melbourne has been gunned down mercilessly in a thrill kill attack, murder is murder. Whether it was racially motivated is not the issue. This same thing could have happened in Northern Ireland in the 1970's, it could also have happened here, there are sick and angry people everywhere.
I am sad for his family and friends, and this would have no bearing on whether I would visit the US as a holiday destination. As I said this could happen anywhere. Look at Syria, Egypt and 50 other countries in the world where people kill people indiscriminately on a daily basis.
I believe humanity has a sickness that is not going away anytime soon, lets hope the next generation can do better and get along with their fellow man whatever the colour of their skin or religious leanings.

Tragic as this case is they were arrested and will get the book thrown at them in the Zimmerman case there was no arrest until massive protests that's the difference
Does it matter that one of the killers is white?? it shouldn't but It's inconvenient for FOX and friends and folks who hate context.

If Trayvon Martin had been shot by a black man under the same circumstances, there would have been NO outcry. That is reality.
Again, using facts, you need to admit that the 'white' boy was of mixed race. He also was the driver, not the shooter. The shooter was black and had violent racist posts on twitter.

That argument doesn't hold any water. There were multiple threads about the black man that shot a white boy under similar circumstances... with the exception that the white boy didn't touch the black man, let alone beat him.
Is that black man in prison for 25 years to life?

Very little real press on this apart from the odd mention on the BBC here in the UK but you get the firm idea that its being media downplayed as a possible racial attack. It has to be decided if the 3 persons were acting racially or this was a random choice for the pass by shooting.

Its clear race was an issue with the boys, at least strongly with 2 of them and it could well be that with the Trayvon case still lingering that IT would be a spur to pick on the 'cracker' but its impossible to be sure.

I doubt at least two of the 3 thugs will admit that..

Aside from that it worries me that Obama and Holder might be behind down playing this in the same way they stepped in to attack Zimmerman, rumours of Obama's apparent dislike of whites may be an issue IF its true but at the moment its merely rumour and should be taken as such.

Certainly Obama and Holder are meddling in these things for political / support profit while a poor man has been killed by a now common disgusting trait of gang drive by shootings, perhap's Mr Obama and holder might better being seen as clearing up the gang situation instead of relying on it for partial support.

I hope nobody is STUPID enough to buy into all this racism( black against white this time along with the elderly man beaten by two black teens in Washington). The media is pushing this angle because the real powers, the puppeteers, want us at each others throats. We get mad and afraid, turn against one another and then the feds get to come in and restore order, disarm everybody and impose new laws limiting even more personal freedoms.
What this IS about is getting firearms and having the right to defend yourself. The feds can go pound sand, the bastages. They failed big time pushing race wars with trayvon martin, don't let them change tactics and win by targeting a new demographic.
Obama is a royal crew up, so is Eric Holder. We have morons in DC and we need to begin to IGNORE THEM and work things out by ourselves. We the people have the answers and we don't need DC causing us trouble and making problems worse or creating new ones.
The media and Hollywood are on their side so we're pretty much alone in this. But we still WAY outnumber them.
