Maybe there is a bi-weekly rant because there are bi-weekly events like this happening that almost never get national coverage.
Meanwhile Yahoo! news-land for the chronically uninformed gives us this:

Certainly a contemptible act but really, why is a racist letter national news according to the dolts who run Yahoo news but the story by the OP isn't?

And in the vast majority of cases, the person lynched was accused of either murder or rape. These were largely extra-legal executions for serious crimes, not just grabbing some innocent guy off the street and stringing him up like we see in Hollywood dramas.
You do know that the bolded text here did happen right? Maybe not strung up, but White people hunting Black people who had done nothing wrong. The Silver Dollar Group jumps right to mind.

Sure, everything happens, but how often does it happen? I suspect the above happened a lot less than many people believe while the reverse happened a lot more than they realize.

Indeed. The white teenager's head could have easily hit the first innocent man's fist Hard then later, his head, face and torso strike multiple innocent boots when he decided to lie down for a while to intimidate the them. His pants could have grabbed the hands of others while rushing off his legs towards the frightened victims. And his wallet and phone certainly flung at the pockets of the remaining victims as they tried to escape the unprovoked attack.

Could have...

Knocking someone out so they have no chance to defend themselves is a real act of cowardice. This poor man will have been out cold before he even realised what was happening. Seems like he is recovering well though so I wish him the best of luck. I have a friend who was the victim of a far more savage assault and the physical injuries sustained aren't the worst part -- it's the mental impact. He was too afraid to go anywhere at night. To this day he isn't quite the same person that he once was.

Hopefully there is a nice, cold prison cell with their name on it.

Not really news because black gangs attacking and beating to near death or to death white men happens frequently. If whites had done the same thing, it would be the number 1 news story worldwide for a couple of years.

I know people aren't defending segregation. I hope I read the last few pages all wrong.

That's a big step there, I posted a story here about a White gang that actually killed a Black guy and it was pretty much ignored because you know, it's C-D.
