Yes, let's let blacks commit all the anti-white hate crimes they want and walk away free time after time. Did the black caucus speak about the suffering the beating victim and his family had to bear?

I'm sorry but I don't think there is anything wrong with our president. I think he is a good man and from what I understand he has just about every race imaginable in him so why would he take sides because they're black. Not everyone on this forum is racist because we think these boys should go to jail. People who talk like that disgust me.

Two way street. Apologies from the black community for the rapes, beatings, and murders of whites over the past 300 years. With apromise never to do it again.
Then whites can apologise for the Jena 6.
