White Middle-Schooler Beaten Unconscious by Group of Black Students!
FACT: This is no longer the EXCEPTION and it now the RULE in the DIVIDED STATES of AMERICA in 2013

The story is shocking enough, even without bringing race into it: on the way to school in Ocala, FA, a thirteen-year-old girl was beaten unconscious and reportedly went into a seizure after being attacked on the school bus by a group of fellow students.
The girl reportedly was riding the bus for the first time. Someone threw a shoe at her, and she threw it back, hitting a student. That's when the beating began. At least seven students surrounded the girl, punched her, held her head to the floor by her hair, and kicked her. The bus driver pulled the bus over, stopped the beating, and then continued driving. But the beating started again, so the driver diverted to a nearby school and called officials, and the girl was taken to the hospital.
Aside from the brutality, there was another troubling fact about this crime -- a fact that predictably did not make it into the news: the attackers were black, and the victim was white. Yet, for the first few days after the attack, not a single news outlet reported on the race of the victim. Since the attack occurred, only one news item has even indirectly mentioned the victim's race. This can't be because the information was hard to come by. The Ocala Sheriff's Office responded to my inquiry about the victim's race within hours.
Many well-meaning people will ask why race matters. Violence is violence, and people are people, so why bring race into it? I sympathize with that sentiment. The trouble is that, if the races were reversed, this would be a larger story. It would be a larger story because we have a system of racial double standards -- some written, some unwritten -- that serve to conceal the reality of crimes like this.
Race matters in stories like this because liberals have made race matter everywhere, in every facet of life. Every institution, from schools to fire departments, is fixated on "achievement gaps," or "disparities," or "underrepresentation, " not to mention every form of racially driven categorization imaginable. Yet, when white people are on the wrong side of a disparity, like a seven-on-one beating, we're supposed to ignore the racial element of that. Or we're racist for making a point of it.
If the girl beaten on that bus were black, and her attackers were white, there would have been a discussion of "hate crimes." Civil rights leaders would begin the chorus of national soul-searching. If the races were reversed, this would not be treated as an isolated incident. Criminal prosecution of those responsible would be only the beginning. "Society" would be made to answer for its lingering racist sinfulness if the victim were black. Well, which part of "society" will be made to answer for the beating of the thirteen-year-old Ocala girl?
The news reports don't begin to capture the horror of what must have occurred on that school bus. If you wonder what such an attack might look like, it probably resembled the recent vicious beating of a fourteen-year-old white girl by at least three black females on a public train in Oregon.
Attorney General Eric Holder famously said that we are "essentially a nation of cowards" in failing to discuss racial issues. If failing to discuss racial issues makes you a coward, I wonder what the attorney general would have to say about the local press in Ocala, FA, just for starters.

You are 100% Correct sooOOO YOU GET AN A+
BLACK DEMOCRATS COMMITT 93% of all MURDERS in the U.S.
WHITE DEMOCRATS COMMITT 3% of all MURDERS in the U.S.
DEMOCRATS COMMITT 96% of all MURDERS in the U.S.
FACT: DEMOCRATS SHOULD BAN THEMSELVES FROM OWNING GUNS!
FACT: PRESIDENT OBAMA SHOULD DEMAND THAT ALL THE DEMOCRATS TURN IN THEIR WEAPONS ASAP!
NOW LEARN WAYS THAT GUNS CAN BE USED TO PROTECT CONSERVATIVES IN THE EVENT THAT SOME OF THE LESS LAW-ABIDING DEMOCRATIC CITIZENS FORGET TO TURN IN THEIR GUNS!
As the left continues to advocate for further restrictions on the Second Amendment, others are using it to save their lives.
This past Wednesday a young 12-year old girl in Bryan County, Oklahoma was able to protect her life when an intruder kicked in her back door and entered her house. Frantically, she called her mother who advised her to grab their household gun, hide in the closet, and call 911.
The intruder made his way through the house, and as he was opening the door of the closet, the young girl shot him through the closet door. The intruder left the house and the girl was found unharmed. The police arrived and took the man into custody.
What would have happened had the girl not been armed? We can’t be sure, but there are far too many stories of young girls being kidnapped, murdered, and raped.
The news is full of crimes and events that could have been prevented—or at least decreased the amount of damage—had there been less gun restrictions. One of the most recent examples is the Aurora, Colorado shooting that occurred back in July.
A masked gunman opened fire at one of the midnight showings of The Dark Knight Rises, leaving 12 dead and 50 injured. One person opened fire, but not one person was armed to protect themselves or others. Aurora citizens are allowed to obtain concealed carry permits, but aren’t allowed to use their weapons. It would have been illegal for anyone to fire his or her weapon in the theatre. The theatre also had a ban on any and all weapons.
I can only imagine if second amendment rights were upheld and protected in Aurora, maybe more people would have been saved. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.
In areas where Second Amendment rights are respected, many lives have been saved in similar instances. About a week before the Aurora shooting, 71-year old Samuel Williams—a concealed gun carrier—opened fire on two intruders in an internet café in Marion County, Florida. One of the intruders was armed with a gun, the other with a baseball bat. Both intruders suffered only minor injuries and were taken into custody.
Luckily, the young 12-year old girl was also able to save herself.
The Left loves to use these instances to lobby for stricter gun laws. Mayor Bloomberg, among many others, advocated for stricter gun laws following the Aurora incident. And, in Tuesday’s presidential debate, President Obama advocated for stricter gun laws:

An eye for an eye. Turn the other cheek. Be the bigger man. How many times must we do this? Don't know about you but there was a time when i was beat. Not only by my parents, but also by total strangers.I will tell you one thing, never again! I could have put myself in the same shoes as these others,but instead i utilized my energy in a positive way. My only wish in this life is that young people realize that there is a bigger Piccoso out there waiting just for them. Dream on children, there is no place in the gutter for you.
