    Union Square ‘I hate white people’ beating victim dies; suspect in court.

    A 62-year-old man who was brutally attacked in Union Square last week died Monday.On Wednesday, a man shouting that he “hated white people” punched victim Jeffrey Babbitt — who is white — in the face, witnesses said, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground.

    Lashawn Marten, 31, who is black, “made statements to the effect that I’m going to punch the first white man that I see,” said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

    I hope they lock this guy up and throw away the key...The larger question I have is why the spike in black on white racial crime lately? What factors do y'all see as causing this to, if not be happening as portrayed as far as news reporting, then why the increased reporting of this type of thing....And if it is as prevalent as the reports on the news would suggest, why isn't there more of a public plea to the black community to knock it off?

    I don't think there is a spike in the crime. I think there is a spike in the reporting on the crime. The media loves to create conflict and is doing its best to enhance that conflict.

    Yeah, me too in some respects...But why would they be doing that? What do they have to gain by further racial division of the nation? Wait, I think I just answered my own question to myself....Ratings....It's disgusting, but probably true....

    I still think this guy who did this should pay.

    Obama, Sharpton and Jackson will always play to the base. They can always count on the 'blame America first' Lefties for support but they have to maintain the idea that Blacks are being discriminated against, and only they can and will fight for them again their White oppressors.

    They sell tragedy, and unfortunately it sells well.

    the great recession has adversely impacted those of color the most
    as a minority person who can't get ahead, who sees others like him in a similar circumstance, while perceiving majority individuals to be doing ok
    all that person can see is black and white
    he isn't looking deep enough at the situation to assess that maybe the choices the average white person makes is not as self destructive as those choices made by him and his minority cohort
    that would require insight and a willingness to engage in true introspection. it is much easier to blame someone else for our self inflicted problems

    and this is not a uniquely black thing. white trash will usually blame blacks and the welfare they receive for the inferior circumstances they face in their lives
    notice that neither under-performing group will take ownership for their own plight

    There is no spike in "white racial crime."

    There are roughly 50 felony assaults in NYC every day. One mentally disturbed black man punching a random white man is not indicative of a trend.

    The recession has not caused an increase in violent crime, especially in NYC. The number of violent crimes in NYC has dropped by 30% since 2001.
