I read about this yesterday. I feel for the victim when this clown gets out of jail. He seem like the type that won't let things go.

The media, which is mostly liberal biased by the way, has sharply amped up the "racist" news and it seems to promoting the "take your side" attitude which is resulting in more violence. Divide and conquer.

If there were more good fathers like "Craig" there would be a lot less crime in the hood and a lot fewer idiots running around yelling "white power" whatever the hell that means.

Who keeps pushing identity on everyone 24/7 and telling people if they're nationalists, they're the same as Hitler? Isn't the Republicans.

Personally I don't believe in that sort of stuff because a violation of the non-aggression principle is just that...a violation of the non-aggression principle.

Just curious to see what the State thinks malicious harassment based on race looks like. That way I can file it next to other fictions like the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
Well, the white power comment and I think I read racial slurs were involved, probably qualified it as a hate crime.

Having said that, I'd love for the violence against white people in Chicago to start being considered hate crimes, but that's not going to happen.

I would like to see loud music, street crime, littering, loud foul language be hate crimes. Those alone will destroy a city faster than anything.

I have to say, I agree with some of the posters here. I'm not seeing a spike of white on black hate crimes. The news would be covering it 24/7 if that was the case.

I have seen a spike in black on white crimes in Chicago, however you have to know where to look to find coverage of those.

Here we travel back to 2014 and lo and behold there were almost 12,000 incidents and offenses that year.

3600 against blacks or about 10 a day.

And you're telling me that some racist a-hole starting a fight at a swimming pool didn't use to happen?

Oh come on now.

Imagine some racist white guy pointing to more shootings in the city some year during the Obama administration and claiming that blacks had become emboldened by Obama being president. Not hard to do and it's not a good look.

I never once postulated a spike in white on black incidents. That Wasn’t even contemplated.

I said that people are all of a sudden being emboldened to do and say things that they knew wouldn’t fly a few years ago, and this attitude is emblematic of what happens when you have someone in power that makes you think there’s a new arrangement underfoot. There isn’t. The old covenant still stands, and the same disrespect that was intolerant before is STILL intolerable now. Folks shouldn’t let the powerful lead them into something that has bad consequences...FOR THEM!! Not the people that exhort you to act like an ass. Those people have bodyguards protecting them from physical confrontations.

This isn’t about a spike in crime. It’s about a spike in bad behavior that folks managed to suppress before. They need to keep suppressing it.
