    I really don't believe that, sorry.

    If behavior is savage and animalistic and a poster calls it savage and animalistic only to have you attack them by calling that person racist for doing so, all you are displaying is that it is you who cannot separate race from actions and that their race gives them special protection.

    If a poster said blacks are savage and animalistic, they would be a racist. If a poster calls actions savage and animalistic without describing it as an all-encompassing racial characteristic only to be called racist for it, the person calling them racist is a racialist -- not a racist in the classic sense, of course, but one who does use race as the barometer for judging actions.

    Is that enough people for you? Or would like more examples, including some names?
    and then you also have people such as those in threads such as these who are motivated by their desire to avoid any accusation that they are racist that they refuse to acknowledge much less criticize the racial aspect involved when blacks target whites and then call anybody "racist" who does.

    It is this great wall of impenetrable rhetoric that surrounds the issue that acts to enable the actions more than anything else. Instead of holding all people to the same standards, it is a game of identity politics with double standards based upon race.

    Proof of which is seen in the responses I am getting from a number of people in this thread, one of which is just a troll trying to have fun, who refuse to discuss the real cultural problem that exists. Rather they attack me for pointing it out, and deflect from the fact that the attack even happened. Instead of discussing the problem, they say things like "no one accepts this" or "no one condones this" or some other half hearted deflection so that they put it to bed and don't have to actually discuss the problem, as if saying "this is bad" is enough.

    The largest problem with this related to race, as I said previously, is the problem that race somehow prevents us from discussing these actions and prevents us from taking them on in a way that would change the culture. We can't discuss it unless we are of the same race as the perpetrators, which is ludicrous. If we try, we are called racists, just as Lutherf was basically accused of being when he spoke truth to action.

    But, let the apologists and deflectors talk their talk. It makes it easier to pin blame when they self identify.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Another example of using any excuse to prevent us from discussing the true culture that exists now, which not only allows such actions to take place, but condones them by making excuses for the actions which empower the culture to expand an grow, hence legitimizing it as a reasonable way to act. Many in this thread have stated that actions are "bad" but say nothing about the root cause because to do so is taboo, as if speaking of it would be seen as a broad brush condemnation rather than speaking truth to actions. This how evil rises and flourishes - through tacit approval from those that don't even realize they are doing so.

    I'm curious if there would this much outrage if the white victim wasn't in the equation?

    IMO, for far too much of the left, identity politics and/or multiculturalism has replaced liberalism as the governing principle. Compounding that is the corresponding rise of authoritarianism expressed through a rigid brand of political correctness that often times demands the suspension of rational thought, and all that is left is a brand of political fundamentalism every bit as severe as the most zealous right-wing religious fundamentalism.

    If large gangs of skinhead whites were to go on a rampage against blacks, there would be a zillion threads on it right now instead of one, and the discussion would be sure to stretch into many weeks.
