    I think this craze would disappear very quickly after people under attack had opened fire on their attackers--especially if this killed a few of them.

    Yeah, tough as nails on the matter they are
    They've clearly condemned these types of actions. It's obviously their race that you're drawing a parallel to.

    The president had stern words for both sides of the conflict.

    “There is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism and looting,” he said.
    "The Justice Department will defend the right of protesters to peacefully demonstrate and for the media to cover a story that must be told," Holder wrote. "But violence cannot be condoned. I urge the citizens of Ferguson who have been peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights to join with law enforcement in condemning the actions of looters, vandals and others seeking to inflame tensions and sow discord."
    But hey, let's hear some statements that would actually support your assertion that they've fostered these types of actions. I'm sure they won't be hard to find.

    You can call it whatever you like. The term feral is tossed around by racist whites with great frequency in my experience, often in threads like these. Savages. Animals. All a good release for those who generally view blacks as such. Couple that with the immediate connection to Obama and Holder, and it's not hard to put 2 and 2 together

    It's not the topic of this thread, but I personally see the connection and want to make the point. It is hardly surprising that this type of thing goes on when you had Ray Rice, prior to today, assault, beat, knock unconscious his wife, and he received no penalty under the law, a slap on the wrist from the league and then was given a hero's welcome by the Baltimore fans first time he appeared at a pre-season game.

    How many of these kids are seeing themselves in this video and also thinking of themselves as special and heroes because they assaulted and knocked someone out?

    Whoever says professional athletes and entertainers aren't role models or shouldn't be role models are just whistling by the graveyard fooling themselves. In today's communications/media bombardment, this is what kids see, respect, and try to emulate and I don't know how to stop it but I sure hope we find a way.

    My point is these attacks seem to be done by a particular group of people. ONE particular group of people, who seem to thinks its ok to go and attack people for no reason. If another more "prominent" group of people did this sort mayhem they would be condemned as a group all over the media. It seems racism is alive and well, but it lives in a place most would not expect.

    Feral means wild- as in feral hogs, feral dogs, feral cats. It's a common term out here in rural America, where we see many wild creatures. These just happen to be humans who look, and are acting like feral animals.
