You know what, we're supposed to be better than this. This whole racism thing is a bunch of BS. We're supposed to be the most progressive nation in the world, yet I keep seeing these crap posts about so & so feeling oppressed & so & so want to rule over another race. That is such utter ****e & I'm embarrassed that there are still people out there who can't get past differences.

We also learned that those badass Spartans from 300 were heavily homosexual. (Just one of many interesting, and not talked about fact our professor taught us).
Untrue in the modern sense,actually the term homosexual wasn't 'invented' until the 19th century I believe.

There lies the root of ALL the problems with racism.

Always the need to assert this mentality as the gateway to say some should be free and some slaves.

Every race and/or culture on the earth made great contributions to modern society, we just have ignored their place, history, in order to say only one race of people ever furthered to state of human kind.

This phrase was used as it pertained to governments, but it applies to race and people also..."all are equal,but some are more equal than others", those who read the book know what I'm talking about!

When black people call white people names it is normal...when white people say something similar it is racism...

Result...Racism will be growing more and more!
I have been saying it right here for a while now, there is racism in America and it is growing and the racism is against whites, not minorities.

You probably wont hear much about this case at all as they will race to shut the info down from the media.

Perfect example is the hooker scumbag at Duke, we heard 24-7 about it and once we found she was a scumbag liar you surely saw the info get shut down real quick.

If that was the other way around you will never seen it at all.

What are you talking about? If I remember correctly, didn't it come out that she lied? How is that "the media shutting it down?"

You believe every culture is exactly equal???

It did come out she lied and they shut it down.

She destroyed the lives of 5 kids and a coach and they allowed her a free pass of course.

Sure sounds like a hate crime to me...
Did you even bother to look at the Ohio statute that defines hate crime? BC they don't even use that term. There is no law about "hate crimes".

If those quoted statements are the only racially-related words that were used, that is probably why they have not yet made decision whether or not to charge them with "ethnic intimidation". (Ohio Rev. Code Ann. 2927.12)

Your OP is misleading. The decision on all charges has not yet been made. If they think that the ethnic discrimination charge will not stick, they won't charge the jerks with violating that particular law.

Law isn't about emotion, it is about the language of law.

I really don't know what you mean by shutting it down, however I don't think I've ever seen any sort of punishment for women who lie about getting raped.
