Black on white crime is not unusual; just study the FBI crime statistics. The NAACP supports these crimes to help keep white people in their place.

The NAACP supports these crimes? Really? Please cite a source where any leader of the NAACP ever said they wanted crimes to occur against anyone of any race, or has actually written anything in their mission statement to support such a ridiculous claim. Do you even know what the NAACP actually does?

This now needs to be treated as a hate crime, if it was the other way around every one knows it would be called as such.
You are absolutely right about that!!! I wish Bethany the very best in her recovery, poor dear.

So than maybe stop being stupid yourself? Or are you just pretending to be ignorant? The point (I am assuming from the post you are commenting on) is that there stands a double standard as it applies to the label and prosecution of "Hate Crime" status. Namely, there is no such beast as a black on white hate crime. Unless you happen to know of a verifiable instance of such a crime being tried and convicted where the defendant was of color and the victim was white. Do you have such proof?

I think its understood that a difference in race alone does not constitute a "hate crime" yet race alone does preclude such a definition in the eyes of some. And I dobelieve that is the actual point that was being made. Just sayin'.

Yes, I know what NAACP does, they go marching around on a certain holiday to celebrate a "preacher" who was a serial adulterer also a "doctor" who plagiarized his doctoral thesis.

They also appoint cokeheads like Julian Bond to run their operation which is financially broke due to mismanagement and waste. Anymore stupid questions??

I am not stupid. I merely pointed out the actual hate crime statute verbatim. And you assume there is a double standard. Have you even looked at the cases that qualify as hate crimes? It is a statute that is used in a very small number of cases, through administrations both Democratic and Republican, and presided over by both liberal and conservative judges.Why don't you try to actually look up the cases where it was applied instead of assuming and complaining that there is a double standard? Calling someone a racial slur at the time of an offense is not a hate crime, unless there are other extenuating circumstances. In this particular case, no racial slur or anything that would be considered racist occurred, except the fact that the people involved are part of different racial groups. And exactly who said there was not black on white crime? The voices in your head?

At the back of the affirmative action line for any job. Also in the too much taxpaying place supporting little welfare minorities.

This story has ZERO to with gay rights and you still bring it up.
Shouldn't you be annoying people on the gay threads?
Why don't you try extending sympathy to the victim instead of shoving YOUR agenda down everyones throat.

When you consider that white folks have been lynching black people for hundreds of years for no apparent reason, just be happy this isn't a daily occurrence.
No one deserves to have this type of thing done to them, period. If they find the woman she should be punished. But to harp of the race of the woman (rather than say, her mental stability which I find more disturbing) is just ignorant. She called her a "pretty girl" not a "white **** " before the attack.
Maybe it was a hate crime but I'm more concerned about getting her crazy arse off the street.
When was the last lynching you know of? You don't even know, do you? You appear to be providing an excuse to a black racist.

Yeah, and I'll bet someone will make one out of this too! I can see the movie release now..."Beautiful White Woman disfigured for life with acid thrown by Mad Black Woman!" Maybe Tyler Perry will produce and direct it.
