    No one will show up. No one will say a thing.

    I'd love to be able to follow the trial though. Can't wait to hear the excuses.

    What, about this, requires Obama's, or the FBI's attention?

    Sure, it sucks, but really? How's it any better or any worse than any other kid being beat up for being gay, for dressing funny, for being somewhat different, etc.?

    from the link:
    "Authorities say 12 girls and six boys, aged 9 through 15, beat, kicked and choked the girl near Wilbur Wright Middle School in Cleveland, Ohio, in observance of a May Day ritual among the teens.

    The Plain Dealer reports police were tipped off that a racial incident might happen and arrived on the scene as the crime was taking place.

    Delinquency charges of felonious assault, ethnic intimidation and aggravated riot were filed against the 18 in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court late last week.

    If convicted, the teens face a minimum of one year in a juvenile facility. "

    what's your point?

    oh, it's you, billy.

    nevermind.

    I wonder where all of the minority apologist are, which excuse will they use?


    "Where's the proof that this happened?", " What did the white girl do to deserve this?", "these poor kids have no role models because of white oppression", "the article was written by a right wing news site" and the old standby, "it's George Bush's fault!"

    It's not. If the races were reversed, he never would have posted about it.

    Kids beat up, pick on, and harrass kid every single day in America.

    He wouldn't have...no doubt.

    However, had there been a Beat Up a Black Kid Day, you know Sharpton and Jackson and everyone else would be all over it.

    It all goes back to the fact that racism isn't only something targeted to African-Americans. If the "N" word is offensive, then it doesn't matter who says it. You don't get a pass because you are black.

    If Beat Up A Black Kid Day is racist and unacceptable, then Beat Up a White Kid Day is just as racist and unacceptable.

    Get used to more of this behaviour from the people of color as time goes on.
