I think it was in the Tribune one Sunday, wasn't it?

It would have incited a race riot, no doubt.

"Racist": A Marxist derived term, designed to silence European-Americans from speaking out in their own interests; to silence critics.

It's an honest question.

I've never heard about it til now, but I do agree if it were 5 white guys doing that to a black couple then all hell would break lose, you would have Rev. Jackson and Al Sharpton all over the tv screen and Im not racist at all Im just being real.

and that is a sick crime, those guys had problems, I hope they die a very slow and painful death and rot in hell and I hope someone cuts em off at the limbs and kicks them around like a big bouncy ball.

anyways back to the media coverage, I have heard of some disturbing sick murders here in NM too and most of them will barely get any attention here, I dont know why that is.

Are you kidding? This was HUGE news in Knoxville. It was on the front page of the paper and was the lead story of the local TV news for several days in a row. One of the thugs involved was just sentenced this week, and it was again the lead news item.

Where in East Tennessee were you that it received very little coverage??

I had never heard of this before. I still don't know what you are talking about because I don't go to that website. My virus protection goes crazy at that place.

the point is valid and at the heart of civil rights laws administration. they are one sided in their application failing to provide protection to all but instead to those who are perceived as the worst abused. the law is supposed to be blind, it clearly is not as to its administration. putting race issues aside, i am far from pleased with many of our current laws and administrations, many should be struck down.

Don't think I've seen more racist threads than this on here....and that's saying a lot, considering I frequent the Miami forum regularly.
