    I have no way of knowing. Assuming how people would react, or what their motivations are because it is convenient is a good way to deceive yourself. The employees may very well have acted the way they did because of racism. But there is a very strong possibility that they reacted the way they did because the manager told them to stay out of it, worrying about his people getting hurt(his primary responsibility in the situation) or that if some one got hurt the store would be sued.

    I saw that as trying to get them to stop without getting involved physically.

    Whether it is considered a hate crime I think depends on motivation, and I have no clue as to the motives of any one involved except the awesome old lady.

    Absolutely. The actions of the two women doing the beating is absolutely unconscionable. There is no excuse whatsoever.

    There is a HUGE racial component to this.

    Notice how the employees - all black - just give kind of a passing "help" to this girl, who is convulsing by the end of this beating. These two black females just keep returning again and again to continue the beating, while the employees just watch.

    The camera operator actually warns the attackers that the police are on the way, and that they should hurry up and leave. Incredible.

    It takes an older white lady to come in and offer any kind of helpful resistance.

    This is a prime example of why I get so disgusted at how the racist tag is so liberally thrown at white people, and how it's almost taboo to discuss in the opposite manner. In my opinion, racism is more deeply rooted and practiced in the black community, both toward whites and Hispanics, than it is in whites.

    While not a mainstream news source, there is nothing more "newsy" than actual video, and the recent trend of these attacks in fast-food restaurants, I thought, made it breaking news worthy.
    What happened was f'ed up no doubt at those two people should be put in prison, but I have a question for you.

    Please prove that " racism is more deeply rooted and practiced in the black community, both toward whites and Hispanics, than it is in whites" as my mother and many black people I know grew up being taught to not be racist towards others and to accept people for who they are, regardless of skin color.

    NOT A DIRECT COMMENT ON CURRENT TOPIC:
    I seem to recall an incident where a guy stopped a robbery and/or apprehended ths subject who threatening to hurt people. He was fired for it.
    I may be wrong.

    I suppose that's possible. I just don't see it as likely.

    One would hope that's the way all cases like this are treated. Still it seems that if race were reversed we'd be seeing some hate crime charges.

    Considering I oppose hate crime laws, I would hope that no one is charged as such here.

    How about common decency?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah. They tell them to leave and then get one of them their cellphone. Obviously friends or "brotherhood" going on there. The person that got the phone should be arrested as an accessory.

    That would be a question for any other customers in the store. I suspect, though have no proof, that the manager told the employees not to get involved, and as employees kinda had their hands therefore tied.
