    ‘Knock That White Boy Out’: Arrests Made After Mob Of Teens Attack Disabled Vet

    Two things about this strike me. First off if it was a group of white kids saying knock that nigger out" it would be wall to wall coverage on network news. Second thing is even in this local report the word "hate crime" never comes up. Go figure.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) - Cleveland authorities have made several arrests following the mob beating of a disabled Army veteran by a group of teenagers.
    Last Friday, the victim, Matthew Robinson, was surrounded by between six and eight teenagers while riding the RTA Healthline. Robinson told WOIO that he was attacked by the teens, then robbed of his possessions.
    During the attack, the teens made several derogatory remarks about Robinson.
    “What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker,’” he was quoted as saying about the incident. “They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”

    Only in the delusional world of the right wing does a story of black against white crime being reported by the media demonstrate that the media ignores black against white crime

    ]Only in the delusional world of the left wing does a story of black against white crime not being reported by the main stream media not demonstrate that the media ignores black against white crime.

    I noticed you ignored the hate crime part.

    I really don't agree with "hate crime" legislation but my understanding is that it has to do with a motivation behind an attack. If someone is attacked because of their race etc. that's a hate crime. If the motivation is robbery or even just random violence, it's not, even if the attack is peppered with some racial remarks (although, the comments could be evidence of intent). Assuming all the things said are true, I'm pretty sure most everyone can agree these kids have committed some serious felony offenses.

    Dog bites man.

    Not news.

    Man bites dog.

    That's news.

    Our evening news, coast to coast, in most all, if not all, larger cities capable of supporting a television station, has nightly news reports of violent crimes, that happen in their locality. More often than not, at least in the larger cities I have resided in, the reports point to African-American male(s,) being the responsibility for said violence. Emphasis on "more times than not."

    Now, the media cannot and will not focus on race when reporting the violence as that would not be politically correct and could even cost the station/network loss of revenue. But the video or locale of the violence or the photos shown, usually do the talking.

    A bunch of African-American males beating up some guy and throwing out racial slurs is much like the dog biting the man. It is not news. It is more like routine.

    I apologize in advance if my posts gets a little to close to the politically correct line people of my race are expected to avoid. It is not my intent to cause any bad feelings. I am just expressing my opinion based on personal observation. I am Captain America. I am obligated to keep it real and maintain honesty, to the best of my ability, in all my posts. This is ONLY my opinion, as I said, based on my observations.

    But, back to topic, This is why I don't think events, such as the OP reports, gets as much attention as some people would like it to get. Dog bites man. Rinse and repeat. Not really news.

    Well after reading these remarks:
    ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker,’”
    . Do you think that you necessarily need to hear "hate crime"?

    I too think the hate crime law is BS but it proves it's BS when it only applies to whites.

    The left gives blacks a pass for this sort of behavior for two reasons 1) They are afraid of black people and don't want to make them angry. 2) They have built up victimhood fence around blacks to buy their political loyalty that they don't want to shatter it. It would, of course, be in the overall best interest of blacks for to have this sort of behavior stigmatized, but the left really isn't interested in improving the lot of blacks in this country.
