    The color of their skin was not mentioned but, in any case, no one was seriously hurt. It seems they were not the "savages" you described.

    Yes, I'm aware of the phenomena. The idea that NYers are particularly vulnerable to it is inaccurate. If anything NYers are more likely to intervene than people who live elsewhere

    Remember 9/11?

    You calling ME an old man is very amusing.
    I'm glad you got that joke

    Well, it might be a lie but if I repeat it enough it will gain a fine mantle of verisimilitude. 9/11 was not the same thing as Kitty's stabbing. It doesn't mean New Yorkers are mean. It just implies that they are guilty of assuming someone else called. On 9/11, I'm sure there were many calls but the two incidents are a bit different in scope.

    That's true. When it came to reporting about the response on 9/11, the media did a fairly good job. The Kitty Genovese story, not so much.

    What many people don't realize is how the Kitty Genovese story was hyped up. While many people did hear her shouts, nearly all of them thought it was just some kids playing around. Very few realized something bad was going down.

    so when a black commits a crime against a white it has nothing to do with the color of his skin even though it was perfectly clear he has racially motives, but when ever a white commits a violent act against a back it has everything to do with the color of their skin, and it is always racially motivated even when there is no evidence to prove as much

    It's obviously Bush's fault, or the White mans fault or the GOPs fault.

    I would be GLAD to enlighten you on the reason for the disproportionate amount of crime among blacks.

    Liberal Democrat policies that have enabled Generational dependency and the destruction of the black family.

    Also some behavioral predisposition not towards crime, but towards compulsion, and impulsive acts.



    Your'e Welcome.

    Asians can't be American? The fact is that you don't know the skin color but instead made it up in order to supply a narrative. Same with you using the term "savages", which was another huge stretch.

    You would never have guessed that George Zimmerman was Hispanic.

    Your source please?

    Have you ever read the Harlan Ellison story inspired by the Genovese murder? The Whimper Of Whipped Dogs

    I have no doubt that Nikolaos Katsos is either Asian or black.
