Mr White got more jail time for possession of an illegal weapon, than killing a white person.
That is precisely what I said, you moron. Yes, I would feel this way if the roles were reversed. A crime is a crime, no matter who commits it. People of any race have the right to defend themselves against a racist lynch mob. God, you'd think people would READ the comments before they reply to them!

As a real New Yorker i can honestly say all you out of state hipsters suburban dudes don't know shit about living in new york 5 boroughs. We have different class of people living in new york city. We have the yuppies, we have the immigrants, we have the ghettos, we have the hipsters which are the ones that cops would help the most when they move into worst areas because of our bloomberg major. Then we finally have the guidos who are very racist and obnoxious is you hipster don't know what a guido or a gueinea is I suggest you do your research before moving into new york city like what mr white did from the ghetto to another guido white trash area. Don't move into howard beach they hate certain white people. Growing up gottis ! stay in soho or williamburb cops will come right away if you call them. But not in a guido neighborhood. Guidos always have a staring problem if you dress a certain way and they know you are not from the neighborhood. They think they a little mob thugs. Good luck !

I'm a white gal from Mississippi and I don't think Mr. White should have spent any time in jail. He had a right to defend his family and I don't care what they say they weren't just going there to "talk".

You are all nuts. The man was safe inside of his home. All he needed to do was call the police and sit tight. Load a gun, go outside to the end of your driveway and wait for a young kid, who was drinking, angry at your son because he thinks he threatend a girl with rape so you can confront him is at the LEAST a very bad, reckless and stupid choice. But, because he is black and his ancestors were mistreated in the past forget a grown mans poor choice and blame the dead kid. where do you people get your logic? a rap song?
I'm judging you by the icon next to your name. You are discredited, and your remarks: irrelevant.
