None of the teens were reported to have used any racial slurs. It may have been a crime of opportunity..See, you're doing excatly what Sharpton does, jump to racial conclusions.

This is a hot-button issue. It is important for the police to gather evidence and review the facts before making an official statement. Doing so prematurely could compromise their investigation or give the appearance that they have already determined the outcome of the case. A premature statement could heighten the situation and turn it into a racial issue.

''This is our world'' and ''This is a black world''....

If it was said by a gang of white thugs you would be crying for the feds to step in,your hypocrisy is amazing.

Look if you are trying to condone this it is pitiful,let us try to figure out how this hate whitey got so bad in the black youth,my guess is the elder blacks instilled it in them

Result...Racism will be growing more and more!
Very correct - Racism will never be eliminated simply because the left chooses to divide. The liberals never seek to unite people as people, rather they would divide them based on the race or class or whatever other demographic they can think to separate.

Divide & Conquer - part of the credo of the left.

You don't think "This is our world" and "this is a black world" is racial? Sounds like Black Power to me.

That is why I said they have an unforgiving spirit. Our school mascot is the Parkwood Rebels and that is a soldier that were both black and white according to history. They so hate our ancestors that they wanted this mascot removed. The civil war happened and is a part of history, get over it. Spend you time doing something that is worthwhile.
So one thing happens in your neighborhood and the entire organization is bad? It's easy to tell others to be forgiving when you or your ancestors weren't the ones being oppressed, so can that. I personally couldn't care less about a freaking mascot but some see it as a symbol of hate that shouldn't represent a school that's probably attended by kids of many races. I love the Washignton Redskins but some Native Americans see it as offensive mascot and I can clearly understand why and they should be free to voice their opposition.
