at least this story doesn't do the usual perp disguise routine.

Quote:
As many as 60 teens were roaming Charleston streets attacking pedestrians and drivers early Sunday, witnesses told police dispatchers in 911 calls released Tuesday.

All the teens were black, according to witnesses, and all but one of the people attacked were white. Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated or sparked by the unrest in Baltimore, which followed the recent shooting death of Walter Scott, a black man, by a white North Charleston police officer.
here's the kicker:
Quote:
The teens came out of a party at the YWCA on Coming Street about 12:30 a.m. and hit the streets. Groups not associated with the YWCA rent the facility.

The motto of the YWCA is “Empowering Women and Eliminating Racism.” The organization sponsors the annual local celebration of Martin Luther King Jr., who preached nonviolence.

Ironic that SC law could prosecute these African Americans under existing anti-lynching laws.

Hate crimes very infrequently are applied against non-whites though. I mean, if we had a group of 60 white kids running around attacking black people you'd see a different response. When they do charge blacks under hate crime laws, it's pretty much always controversial arguably more so than they generally are to begin with.

YWCA is generally a very good organization. I wonder what happened there that got the mob fired up?

agent provocateurs. pitting blacks and whites against each other to get a race war started almost guarantees marshal law. the neocons are salivating blood.

haha.. I can't stop laughing at this. Momma must be so proud.

I'm sure an education isn't needed, he can always fall back on a promising career in rap music.

Loretta Lynch can send someone down to investigate this racial profiling.
