Calling a white person a redneck is akin to calling a black person a nigra. It's socially acceptable to make fun of poor downtrodden white folks though. Talk about a double standard!!!
Calling someone a Redneck is not racist...try again...maybe stereotyping, but not racist...look up the definition of racist and get back to me.

Let me help you out...Redneck is just another way of saying someone is bigoted in their views and have a narrow-minded perspective about things...they are resistant to change and prefer the "old ways" ( old ways in the South were when blacks were slaves)...so calling someone who posts very bigoted views on this forum a Redneck is calling "the kettle black"....it is what it is...Why do you all have the views that it is okay to constantly beat down anyone of another race ( whether it be Native Americans, Mexicans, other Hispanics, Asians, Arabs, and especially Blacks) but get your britches in a wad when someone calls you a racist or a Redneck? You are what you are...they are what they are...You all need to travel more and get out of Lexington County or South Carolina and see how the rest of the World lives, breathes, thinks, etc. Get a more global view...that is called maturing and becoming more cultured.

why TF was the age of the teen conveniently left out of this article 19 are you not an adult and going with a 16 year old is breaking the law?

I am Black and I hate race mixing, taught my kids from birth GOD said to each after it's own kind and that I would disown either of them if they crossed the race line.

if you don't like how I feel about race mixing, take it up with my GOD the FATHER of JESUS CHRIST and HIS HOLY SPIRIT.

If he was beating the guy for being with his daughter, did he beat her too? Sounds like this poor guy was keeping company with the wrong kind of trailer park trash.
I was thinking the same thing.

InSC there is no such thng as a hate crime, so they can only be charged with some type assault or even lynching. Now if the FBI comes in to investigate, they will hold a round of news conferences to show off their new suits, then charge them with violation of their civil rights. It will be a federal trial with the jurors chosen STATE WIDE (not local)so there may be a good chance of a conviction.

Bad thing, should of never happined because it was dumb and uncalled for. Golly don't them idiots watch the Disney Channel where interracial stuff goes on all the time. Heck, lock them up and throw the key away. No big loss

To me a redneck is a person who drives a truck to work everyday, they argue with thier redneck friends about whether Ford or Chevy trucks are better and they like to either hunt, fish or both, they like NASCAR, hate Jeff Gordon and wears a hat (usually a John Deere hat) almost daily. You assume that all rednecks are racists, they are not. I'm not defending them, I personally can't understand most conversations I have with them. Don't hate on Lexington County cause its way safer than Richland county. Lighten up some too.
Yeah, the meth heads are real nice folks.

OK, let's not get ahead of ourselves on this one. Did the dad attack the 16-year-old SPECIFICALLY because he was black, or because he was with his daughter PERIOD? It's inexcusable either way, but I hope that no one just jumps to the conclusion that this is DEFINITELY a hate crime based on initial facts, before the investigation is completed.
LOL, you need to listen to the victims and witnesses on scene. The local police thought enough of the evidence to call in the State Police and the F.B.I..No cover up now, let the light of JUSTICE investigate this and it will be done and finished. EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW for everyone.

thats right Bubba the F.B.I. will protect you too from racist hate crimes. Equal protection under the law for all. U.S.A. rulez. getting your azz kicked for being stupid out of season does not count as a hate crime for ANYONE black or white. Local law enforcement saw the writing on the wall and acted in a professional and logical manner in this case.

Of course this is a hate crime. Let's face it, two white men beating a black teen is just that. Oh, yeah, sure, someone is going to say that it is a father protecting his daughter, but I do not believe that the two would have beaten a white teen. They may have forced him to get out of the daughter's car or something, but that is about the size of it. I am glad they are charged locally, but I do not think it is going to go federally as a hate crime. I wish it would, but it is not. Furthermore, shouldn't there be some other charges for them beating up a minor. Also, I thought lynching is when two or more people beat someone. I think there are a lot more charges that can be brought up against these brothers and the Solicitor's office should have a field day. Hell, they charged the boys of Jena, Mississippi like mad. For anyone not to see this as the crime it is, is just plain stupid.

They had to kill or be killed... and not by the Indians... as for as "how soon we forget?"... something that happened over 200 years ago is considered "soon" to you?... yeah, ok.
