Is the defense racist in nature? Is the prosecution racism in nature? Was the gang fighting racist in nature?

I do know I had a few knee jerk reactions as a white guy who was surrounded by racial tensions in the city I grew up in. I wonder how others feel as they are reading the article and I wonder how they feel and what they thought at the end of the article.

I will admit initially feeling that if the group that did the shooting was comprised of whites, race would have been a bigger issue in the prosecution.

I admit to wondering about the racial aspects and how much they weigh on the interaction between the groups.

I ended up coming away from the article with a different perspective than the one I had going in.

L.A’s 49th Street Massacre may not have been about race

Three Latinos, including a child, were killed in a gang-style attack. The suspects, now on trial, are black. But the motivation is not believed to be racial.

This is nothing new. There has been all out war between blacks and latinos in the West for a long time.
