A friend of mine sent me this story. Here's the source:

UPDATE: Sheriff says man killed woman with hammer - 12 News KBMT and K-JAC. News, Weather and Sports for SE Texas

*sigh* I don't know, it's a really sad story. Some people in this world are just sick, strange, & disturbed.

Just out of curiosity, why did you list the races of these people in your thread? Sounds like a man killed a woman to me and he deserves what is coming to him. Why the "WHITE MAN KILLS BLACK WOMAN" title?

It is very sad , but I don't see the race of either parts as relevant in that context as the article states it wasn't a hate crime. Murders go on every day and as you say alot of people are seriously disturbed or simply nasty but bringing race into it is dangerous I feel.

So your friend was making it a race issue? The articles dont say anything like that. Sad story but it looks more drug related than anything...

Don't worry about it, everything is about the white or black man now . It takes our mind off the real dangers facing us both . Divide and conquor .
