If it were a white man being beaten up by a black,would that be a hate crime? I doubt it. Seems like the whites,mostly poor ones are called racist, but the other groups are all love and peace. Bullcrap. Goes to show where this country has gone.

I can remember when there were no blacks in that area. Now they think farm towns that had underground railroads owe them something too. What a pathetic shame.

I haven't heard such redneck-nazi crap since I left Illinois, and boy am I glad that I did. I thought that my cro-magnon ancestors stomped all of the neandertals out,I guess that you found refuge in a pocket in Western Ilinois.

Just try living in a black or "mixed" neighborhood.

Just try before you start calling everybody racists.

Blacks are 50 times as racist as whites.

Sure, you got a few good ones, but most of the time they will throw all sorts of hate your way.

So before you start all the "your stupid for hating blacks" liberal cliches, be around them for about 5 years and that will take that black wannabe shit right out of your system.

thats for sure. do you see white people pulling the "color card" ... hell you look at a black person and they thin kit's because there black, or we're raciest for looking at them. I agree with road ranger.

Beardstown and Rushvile are full of racists...I'm surprise they even did anything about it...most of the time its just pushed under the rug and forgotten...racism has to stop...just because someone looks different than you does give anyone the right to beat on them...by the way I'm white.

Hey roadranger I grew up the only white kid on my street.You say that "Blacks"are 50 times more racist as whites well how so Did you get discriminated against for being white Did you not get a job because you were white Did you have to sit on the back of the bus,Did you not get served at a Black only Restaurant,or maybe you had to piss yourself because you couldnt use a black only restroom.Im sure you had it really rough.Im not condoning racism by anyone But if you look at the facts "Blacks" are the only ones who you could make an argument for being racist.

Blacks considering themselves to still be victims as if slavery and the whole equal rights shit happened last month is getting pretty flippin old. Come on now really, honestly i dont think we have anyone still alive who actually took part in any of that. White people were slaves in egypt waaaay before black people were here in america so should we (whites) walk around with an undeserving sense of self worth because of something so many years ago? Grow up loose the excuses and get with society. Besides here in beardstown you are much more likely to be discriminated against if your white, versus african or mexican. Dont believe me? Go apply for a job
