If a group of whites smiled at any other demographic group it would be labeled as a racist microaggression and would be plastered all over the news immediately for 2-3 weeks.

If you go into a high crime area.....crime happens to people. You should not have some sort of false expectation that your color should somehow be a shield that protects you from what others are experiencing. Again.....sounds like the expectation of white privilege.

Racism at its finest.
indentured would walk barefoot 100 miles across blazing sand to excuse black-on-white attacks.

I'm not sure what's going on here. We have a conservative newspaper here (Washington Times) that I skim through a few times a week. And Fox has a local news station (WTTG channel 5) that I watch every night, and I haven't seen anything about this. But no question this story should have been reported on right away. And the "Hinckley Hilton" as we locals call it is in a "good part of town". As a musician I have worked that hotel many times through the years. Nothing like this has ever happened before.

Forget partisanship when it comes to the act. These individuals are complete trash.

My issue is that this will be contained to local news only. And quickly forgotten. BUT, if the races were reversed, we know exactly how much attention this would get. Narratives matter and in 2019, there is a clear narrative being pushed.

if the police don't release the info, then it doesn't matter how many potentially receptive news outlets there are.

If a community has a high rate of crime.....and you enter the community and become a victim of a crime.....don't take it personal.
This is nuts. Where are white mobs ganging up on a few blacks and beating them senseless?

Cant believe you defend this.

Leave the far-right posters here alone and let them spread their message of hatred and racism!
Youre defending this act of senseless brutal violence.

Probably "disrespected" him somehow.


You know, looked at him funny, didn't give him a smoke when asked, that sort of thing ...
