    The New Black Panthers are here.

    What's the difference between the New Black Panthers and the old Black Panthers?

    the old black panthers were secular and had a marxist bent(i believe). The new black panthers are basically a radical offshoot of the nation of Islam, which adopts all kinds of weird religious ideas about space men and "corrupted races"

    Re: Police arrest 2 teens in georgia baby's killing

    If the races were reversed, would there be as much victim-blaming and denial being spewed?

    The accused are obviously presumed innocent until proven guilty but it's just disgusting to read that some people here are already accusing the mother of fraud without seeing ANY evidence whatsoever. How can you be certain that the baby's mother is guilty when NONE of you have even seen all the evidence to judge anyone?

    Would you victim-blamers have behaved similarly if the accused were white and the accusers were black OR is the presumption of innocence only afforded to non-white people?

    Would you victim-blamers have aggressively questioned the credibility of black/brown accusers as you have done with the credibility of Sherry West?

    The presumption of innocence always (or should always) prevail in the judicial system. This, however, is a forum where people speculate. Trying to play the race card as if we are a court of law throwing racially charged indictments around is just petty whining and moral grandstanding as if you are the one holding all the facts.

    Apparently one of the kids was also indicted for another shooting, as well. And the Mom ans sister apparently were charged for dumping a gun

    Questioning the biases of people of rushing to judgement is playing the race card?

    I personally don't know the facts and thus I've refrained from passing judgement.

    What I find disturbing is the amount of victim-blaming of the mother simply because of her race and the perpetrators' race.

    I would never condone it if the accuser was black and the accused were white but some people seem justified in aggressively blaming the mother just because of her race and the perps' race, despite not having anymore evidence than the result of the people commenting.

    Why can't people just refrain from judgement until ALL the facts are presented? Is it not possible to learn from the Duke lacrosse rape case and the Susan Smith case?

    You are the one playing the race card. I've seen noone say she did blah because she's white. That's all you making assumptions of other's.

    While a few people seem needlessly hung up on race here, the majority doubting her innocence seemingly based their views of how she was acting publicly. Which, while I don't agree with, hardly deal with race
