wow amazing statistics .. Few out of three hundred million people. Some of these examples might qualify treason and although I didn't vote Obama these instances really go beyond the pale. Erm, Palin. I know as a Republican I'm oftentimes treated less than human in oh so evolved progressive Santa Cruz where the pro Obama sanctioned hat seller is a sore winner. Rubs it in. Some even continue to fly insults and ridicule against someone like Sarah Palin around here. Pretty gross.

Meanwhile, in lieu of that promise by Obama about limiting his campaign to public financing I still have to wonder whether any of that surplus went directed to living wage for that dopey Obama hat seller.

Wouldnt disagree with you here.. and AP hasn't even been following journalistic protocol during this election. Can't help but get a little suspicious when propaganda like this gets released. Could be a precurser to something else.

One was in Snellville, Ga., where Denene Millner said a boy on the school bus told her 9-year-old daughter the day after the election: "I hope Obama gets assassinated." That night, someone trashed her sister-in-law's front lawn, mangled the Obama lawn signs, and left two pizza boxes filled with human feces outside the front door, Millner said.
TAWANA BRAWLEY anyone?
I think most of these so called "claims" are lies.
Blacks now feel empowered and look to create incidents to thump their chests.
The most effective ability blacks have had is to cry "racism" and hold out their hands... and now that Obama is president, they have an enhanced feeling of entitlement.
I've noticed over the years that a lot of these claims don't have the ring of truth. Often the descriptions of these hate crimes against blacks give crime methods largely employed by blacks, and the reported speech patterns are black. That is, these are methods and speech not commonly used by whites.

I think the desire to blame whites for black failure causes the accusers to make up stories which fit their own fantasy.

There will always be a few idiots, of all races. A few "hundred" incidents, real or imagined,(a lot of them by kids who don't know any better) out of 300 million is statistically insignificant.

Yeah, politics in this country really sucks. After my family found out I voted for Bush the 2nd time, they called me a "war monger," and stopped inviting me over.

Am I to believe that the USA had ZERO crime before Obama got elected? ROFL! Just like the GOP is blaming "Obama" for the bad economy! What do these morons eat for breakfast?

We see a light at the end of the tunnel, folks, and this time, it's NOT the usual freight train!

People that do things like that, are people that are very uneducated, yet worthless to society. They only stream hate among people. And honestly, people like that need to be taught a serous lesson. I love it, Obama in there face!! BIG TIME.... It only brings me happiness to see people like that so unhappy with life. lol

Signs of the times. If a minority commits a crime against a white person... it's simply a crime. If a white person commits a crime against a minority, whether they're rascist or not, know that it's a minority or not (in the event of say robbery or grand theft auto), it's considered a hate crime.

Sad days ahead.

For those of you who claim that blacks are always screaming racism - well, that could have something to do with simple fear caused by four hundred plus years of senseless terrorism. I'd never say that all of anyone does anything, that's just illogical. But I will say, that as a black person, I have to be concerned about where I live, who I talk to, who I trust, and what I say out loud. I have to remember that I can run into a violent racist any time, any where. It's not the majority of people (I really don't like calling people "white"), but, just like being around any group of people, I never know who the crazies are. I didn't vote for Obama either, but it's because I don't like his politics and I don't think he has enough experience to run this country. But we need to open our eyes to the big picture.
The whole world celebrated how progressive we appeared to be. Terrorist in the Middle East - where our brothers and sisters are - would build their ranks by proving by our own terrorist acts committed against our own people that we were dirty, horrible racists. When Obama was elected, we took some of the force out of that argument. Now look?
Because of a few knuckleheads, we're going to loose a lot of support. White racism is not a black problem because blacks can't teach their kids that slavery is over. Blacks and other minorities are just the victims of the fringes of our society.
You're right. It's unfair that when a black person attacks a white person it's not called a hate crime. I once fought for a white student that was clearly attacked by two black students because of the color of her skin. The fact of the matter though, is that this can be straightened out by simply saying that a student attacked another student. The reason doesn't matter. Is there a such thing as a love crime?
However, we, as a nation, republicans, democrats, and moderates; blacks, whites, and browns; protestants, catholics, and others need to grow up. If we keep this up, there won't be an America left for our children.
As far as Obama is concerned: we survived wars, depressions, social movements, and many other things. I trust that he will do the best he can and it's irrational to think that his goal is to ruin this country. Hey, I voted for Bush twice and we survived that (barely). It's time for us to catch our breath and support our country.

Whoa! There's ugly and then there are people like the bigots above: "I's not rasist and if I waz I wud hav good raisens for it!"

One cannot reach out to soothe a foaming rabid dog, so expect nothing until you discover some basic human qualities and begin trying to express them.

This is a good comment I enjoyed reading. Thanks! For myself only, I believe Obama will be the best President in history. All the problems now will be dumped on him.

i thought the point here was the media spin of these very limited in number hate crimes. but of course everyone chooses to ignore the garbage reporting that is force fed down their throats and instead discusses race relations.

don't you get it? don't you ask yourselves WHY? don't you wonder what inspires these men in little board rooms to decide to spin this stuff? obviously many of you read the paper like it's some kind of message from a supreme being.

here's a news flash: it ain't.

Today as I was taking my groceries home on the bus, there was a small, elderly black man in the seat by the front door. He wore thick glasses and had a crutch with him. Like many older people he wore a suitcoat in a way that made him look casual, but dapper.

As we rode along I noticed him adjusting his lapel. He raised the lapel and underneath on his shirt was a large button with big picture of Obama on it. He tenderly patted the button and carefully covered it with his lapel.

It was very touching. It brought tears to my eyes.

I do the same thing with my KKK button, which is dapperly attached to my white hood. Brings tears to my eyes as well!
