    Actually he is incorrect. According to FBI stats in 2010, there were 6,628 hate crimes (FBI — FBI Releases 2010 Hate Crime Statistics). Of those, 18.4% were black. When one includes the fact that blacks make up only ~13% of the population, they are being convicted on a greater scale than whites who committed 58.6% of the crimes, but make up ~72.4% of the population (USA QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau).

    Edit: Thus, if the government cares more about white on black hate crimes than black on white, then why is it that blacks are prosecuted for hate crimes more often than whites?

    I think its probably attempted murder with a conspiracy charge (premeditation is obvious) so add another 10

    use of weapons-add 5



    and racial hate crime-another 5

    30 years seems about right
    Probably more. I wouldn't be surprise to see a couple of ex cons in that rowdy bunch

    Re: Man Beaten By Mob, Arrests Expected Today

    Sharpton or Jessie showing up?

    I was thinking Oxcy Rush or maybe Buchanan would be demonizing this, more their side of the street.

    I suppose if Mobile had a history of suppressing the white man I'd agree more stink needs to be made, afterall we can't let people going around beating white folks for no good reason.

    I think you would have to be a very simple soul to think there won't be some backlash after Trayvon. Not saying it is justified and not saying we know all that happened before the beating, odd to think there is no history to this, that it was the first time kids played in the street and not sure what the 'fussing' actually was.

    But now would be a good time for the 'white' whiners to do as they said with the Trayvon case and wait for a few more facts before rending garments.

    That ain't as much fun as kicking up a premature fuss and demanding equal time from the President.

    Yeah, Jesse and Sharpton wouldn't show up, they don't really care about justice, only how much publicity they can get and camera time, while supposedly supporting their race who constantly murder each other, but you never hear them talk about that, only when Whitey is involed. That's all they care about....Destroy whitey and personal greedy, selfish gratification.

    No doubt arrests will be made shortly, and charges will soon follow.

    and yet, how long did it take for there to be an arrest and charges against George Zimmerman?

    exactly.

    Re: Man Beaten By Mob, Arrests Expected Today

    The people who committed this crime are guilty of racism and attempted murder. No one else. Blaming Obama is a bit silly. Pointing fingers at Jackson and Sharpton (as much as i can't stand the racist sob's) is not appropriate. I could see pointing the finger at the NBPP because they have been calling for violence exactly like this. This is a matter of holding the men who committed the crime responsible not pointing fingers at others no more than if it were reversed.

    I will say that if Sharpton and Jackson don't speak out against this I think that they are hypocrites, but that is as far as I will go with it. I'd like to see this could even a third of the attention of Trayvon but it wont. Media doesnt work that way.

    Uhh, Zimmerman was in the wrong and this mob was in the wrong. I am as liberal as they come and I am not seeing the point of the commentary in the OP.

    The bulk of the rage surrounding the Martin/Zimmerman case, though, didn’t come from it being a racially motivated crime. Racially motivated crimes happen every day. The rage came from the AUTHORITIES’ perceived inaction and the belief that if the shooter had been black and the deceased were non-black then the police would have treated it differently.

    the cops believed it was self defense

    pretty hard for the pack of thugs to claim that

    I wasn't arrested when I shot someone, i was questioned after waiving my rights for 2 hours

    then a cop gave me a ride home

    why

    1) I called the police

    2) I told them where I was

    3) I gave them my name

    4) three witnesses I didn't see confirmed what I told the cops

    5) the one mugger who wasn't shot lied and then in lockup told another inmate that he and his buddy had tried to mug someone

    so what I said checked out and the cops knew I was telling the truth

    sure a couple left-wingers whined that the two muggers were arrested and I was not

    they were idiots

    we don't know how wrong Zimmerman was

    1) bad judgment

    2) bad tactics

    3) racist hatred

    4) desire to kill

    all could be possible

    none could be

    hard to say without more evidence
