Wow, you are absolutely amazing, did you just wake up and figure out there are double standards in our country? How about in our world? Whites have been discriminated against since EO became a law. Here is something for you to wrap your pea sized brain around; nobody cries that the NBA is predominately employs blacks. All the fans care about is that the best players play for their team. So why is it a matter of national interest if the best people for other jobs turn out to be predominantly white, Irish, Chinese, Jewish or whatever you find out they are when you look at the statistics? We should be free to hire the best people for the job without regard to any ethnic or racial considerations. And as for this one case being treated differently, duh! I said that in the first sentence of my post. The real difference is that this idiot stated that he was doing it for racial reasons. Have any of the predominantly black perpetrators of this crime openly admitted and recorded that they were doing it as a crime against whites? No. So this guy is doubly stupid. He attacked a 74 YO man because he was black. Where would your outrage be if you found out the guy was a vet? Would you sing a different tune if the guy died? He made every argument of the hate crime statute and recorded it for the prosecution. How stupid would they be if they didn't charge him? It's not our fault if the other criminals are smarter than this guy. It really doesn't matter what color their skin is, this guy is stupid and deserves to be punished. But if this idiot is your role model for how to protest perceived unfair treatment and double standards, you have explained more about yourself then you can ever imagine. What difference does their religion make? In this story the "black dude" was the victim. You must be a closet Zero supporter since you only seem interested in trying to further the divide.
