    So, after the whole Trayvon media mess, and this current spate of killings of Tulsa where they're saying it was a white guy in a white pickup truck, we all know any white crimes committed against blacks will get huge media time for racism. But how come the reverse does not apply? It seems to me that crimes with black perps and white victims doesn't get nearly the media time. Such as these stories I've linked to, they seem plenty awful and racist to boot, but didn't get 10% the media time Travyon is getting. So my poll--in your opinions, does the media and the USA in general not care about black on white crime as much as white on black?

    Along with the point of George Zimmerman--who looks hispanic to anyone with eyes--now being called a 'White Hispanic' since he has a white parent. Shouldn't President Obama be a 'White African American' by that standard?

    I'm ignoring the race-crime-thing because I've discussed it heavily in other threads and don't feel I need to repeat myself here on any of that.

    But this issue of 'determining what race you are' - is so offensive to me. My sons are mixed - they're white and native american . . . they can choose to embrace whatever they want - or nothing at all. It's not for anyone else to decide because it's their life and no one else's. One 'looks' more native american and the other doesn't . . . so this whole 'mixed race - what are you and under what criteria - let's all decide for you' is so pathetic and offensive.

    We're so obcessed with rigid broad definitions of race in this nation - it's archaic and immature. To consider my sons who are of the same two parents to be remotely different races is laughable.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Yeah the media cares a lot more about black on white crime. See OJ in the case of MJ well it really was black on white crime......

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
