I'm not saying anyone should attack anyone. Those idiots are wrong for what they did, period. They should be in prison for what they did. That's called assault.

I tell people to be circumspect in their travels, to try to avoid places that are "vibrant." Looks like now there is a need to simply stay away from certain cities no matter if they have been safe in the past or not.

Don't let your imagination run wild, G_M - that's never going to happen. It would be in violation of your civil rights.

Well, growing up around the kind of environment that I did, I don't think it's farfetched for me to consider this. I went to school with a few kids who threatened to hang me from a rope. I've also seen some individuals post some ugly things here. I remember one person who claimed "Jim Crow laws were to protect White people". I'm simply consider that a few people "could" be thinking about such things. Not talking about everyone. It would be a violation of civil rights and there would be law suits. I'm saying there are some people who would love to see bad things happen.

If it was a black man savagely attacked by a group of white teens this would have received instant wall to wall coverage with calls of racist attack. But because itís a white man savagely attacked by a group of black teens the story barely trickled out and no national calls of racism.
