Do you think she will mention why hate crimes charges were not filed against the black teens who murdered two white British tourists and set a white teen on fire because they were white?

Me neither,

Uh, you DO know they are doing 2 consecutive life sentences, right? How can you punish them any more than that?

I guess the state should have spent the extra money for another set of charges. Think things through!

all i know is that if the races were the other way around- there would be cries for hate crimes charges.

I think all the parents of white relatives that have been killed by black kids are angry that this Martin incident is getting more publicity than when a black kills a white person? Where is the unbiased media? This past week in FL, a black kid was sentenced for killing two unarmed tourists in FL.....Where's the news? Why aren't they disgusted about that?

Black murders are more commonplace and blacks are 95% more apt to be stopped walking while black, talking while black, eating while, drinking while black and just existing while black.

At 40 years old, I am still stopped while black with advanced degrees and my own company with employees. The problem is whether you be liberal or republican, your eyes pretty much work the exact same way; that is to look from a lens of fear at another, simply based on race.

When this becomes my argument when the lens is transposed to white people, then I will also be seeking the same answers that you are right now but until then let's just let this case have its merits for now. Thanks for your post though.

Because of my degrees and age (in my 30's though, older bro ha!) I try to look at every "altercation" individually. I've been stopped 2 times in the last month just on my way from one job (as an adjunct at one college) to my other job (full time teacher at another school). I say to myself: I have a tie on. I'm not speeding. It's not late at night. What could possibly be suspicious about me? I never want the reason to be race because I simply don't want to believe that's the world I live in.

I simply can't think of another reason.

>>On her morning show, "Starting Point," she said that white panelists were "stunned" to find out that someone could potentially be targeted merely for the color of their skin.

WTF?!!! So you deny there is NO racial profiling? Typical GOP sheep mindset. You folks hate reality/facts. You folks are the reason there is a "hate crime" law.
