SPOKANE, Wash. -

WWII veteran Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten and left for dead by two teens at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane on Wednesday evening.
Belton, 89, died from the injuries he suffered in the beating Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Spokane police are looking for two male suspects in the attack. They said the suspects are African Americans between 16 and 19 years old.

The vast majority of hate crimes are committed (70%) are committed against blacks, not whites, no matter how much you'd like that to be true. Are you also going to list the thousands of hate crimes against blacks on here? Just to be fair?

Angry over Obama's election, Ralph Nicoletti and Michael Contreras, both 18, and Brian Carranza, 21, of Staten Island, New York decided shortly after learning of Barack Obama's election victory "to find African Americans to assault," according to a federal indictment and other court filings. The men then drove to a predominantly African-American neighborhood in Staten Island, where they came upon a 17 year-old African American who was walking home after watching the election at a friend's house. One of the defendants yelled "Obama!" Then, the men got out of the car and beat the youth with a metal pipe and a collapsible police baton, injuring his head and legs. The men went on to commit additional assaults that night.

Their hate crime spree culminated with crashing their car into a man who they mistakenly believed to be African-American, causing his body to shatter the windshield.

No one seems to note that women are not fully equal. The last time I checked, they were a bigger group.

Memo to blacks: other groups have come to America and have made it up the ladder of the dream. Perhaps you need to study why they can do it, and you complain that you cannot.

They volunteered to come here with language & traditions, group unity & dignity in tack. Blacks were kidnapped, sold into slavery, forced to work for free until 1941. They were forbidden to speak their native tongues. Families were split apart, sold down the river. They faced terrorism on a daily basis for centuries.

Perhaps you need to stop being trite & study history, my friend. Stop showing your apparent ignorance & stupidity to the world. You should be embarrassed to think the way you do.

First, Dr. King's dream takes generations to achieve. That said, we have made enormous progress in the last 50 years on this front.

Second, Obama's election is irrefutable testament to that progress, but the impact will also be long-term versus immediate. From now on every generation of children that study history in school will know that at least one black man achieved the presidency. This is good and powerful.

Third, if Dr. King had not been taken from us we would have made more progress. At least he might have mitigated the arrival on the scene of race opportunists like Al Sharpton who has done more to set the black community backwards than any other individual.

One sad irony is that Dr Kings family has restricted the use of material from the King archives in efforts to patent his words only to spend much of the money collected to help out James Earl Ray.

Huh?

when you are told you are a victim every day you start to believe it. Blame Dems and their failed social experiment. It has hurt the black community and has made government dependency a way of life for many of them. And this President has done more to divide us than any other in my lifetime.

I wonder if MLK had his butt hanging out of his pants?
Highest ratio of crime Black on Black.
I think MLK expected a lot more from the black community too.
We all are letting him down.

Dr King did not fight for racially charged government leadership stirring up the citizens of America.

Spokane police are looking for two male suspects in the attack. They said the suspects are African Americans between 16 and 19 years old.

One suspect was described as heavy set and wearing all black clothing. The other was described as being about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds. There was no description of what clothing the second suspect was wearing other than a silk do-rag.

It never will be, because we are not equal. You can treat them equal, even better, but just like women they are not actually our equals.

Get over it

Treachery is not indemic to any one race of people. I know and have seen the deeds of some real good, decent and sincere white people. Some are like family to me! And then I know some tryfiling black folk who I wouldn't trust as fare as I can throw.

The problem are the white folk in charge, particularly on the conservative end of the spectrum. There's a conserted effort to suppress black culture via society and in American culture. To be fully accepted one must abandon their cultural genetic memory banks for the Eurocentic model. Case in point Sports dominated by blacks receive the most fines and penalties for talking, celebrating and or dressing flamboyantly to the point where they receive the maximum penalty (Plexico Burriss). Where voilations in sports dominated by whites are practically ignored. The most scrutinized person on the planet is President Obama who is leaset expressive in black culture. That's just an example of how ignorant and bias some whites are. If anyone has a ligitimate excuse to be angry is a Black man. And yet it's coded to alert others of some type of pending retibution for slavery!!

Such a b.s. comment. Black people are slaves to the democrats, plain and simple. Just admit it.

...Which makes you a slave to Tea Baggers...So whats your point
Note: Since you replied to my comment I can only assume you can at least read. Read "AMERICAN" history about reconstruction and what Party Blacks joined after being freed.
Whites were slaves to liberal begging for handouts because of slavery there was no work other then working on plantations to boost their low self esteem. Hence the KKK and Jim Crow to first erase black progress and deny them opportunity. After the freed blacks looked to the Government for protection and in the process became liberal. That caused a mass exodus of whites from the liberal party to the republican party where they continued up and still today Jim Crow and Red Lining.
This is why racist are working to revise history to protect your delicate sensibilities regarding your illusions of superiority...

if MLK was alive, he'd be embarrass of the way Obama, holder, revs. Jackson, Sharpton, black panthers with sticks, black activists, liberal democrats and the media handle/treated black people like garbage or slaves for the last 50 years.

Well media, as long as a racially charged story gets more ratings we will not have equality. I have seen several stories recently that had very little or nothing to do with race with racial headlines.... Keep up the good work.

except when blacks are killing or beating whites. Race is never mentioned

Martin Luther King talked about people being known by their character not by the color of their skin.

Equality means you have the equal chance to succeed and we all do. Some take that opportunity and some like the President, rely on skin tone to advance.

i respect your right to your opinion. but we do not have an equal chance to succeed. we just dont. and the definition of equality is not confined to just the opportunity to succeed either. also, politicians are manipulative. its practically required for their job.

You don't have a chance to succeed because you believe the myth that you don't.
