the kids who asaulted him as well as the victims are both good friends of mine. but what i do have to say is that none of them are white suppremisists or anything of the sort. as a matter of fact i'm black and have been close with some of them since i was in elementary. it's messed up what happened but there being judged the as white supremisists when there not.

Time to grow a little--but please, not too fast!
SMS: YES, ppl cn b like this- even 1s we thnk we kno.

Selina: "we didnt bc that wouldn't have made nada better" --Still think so?? Perhaps the whole mess cld hv bn avoided if someone alerted others, or authorities. These thngs r SERIOUS! Time for games is over. Think ahead-- what do these actions translate to when full adults?? Guns, death, wars, hate, etc....?
Take responsibility. Take action.

SHS Jr- Correct! Prob. not real "supremacists"--yet. Blame the parents for infecting their kids with "white pwr", other hate attitudes. Media too-- it's obvious.
Let's heal. Let's learn.

I have seen this kids grow in the neighborhood. I know them as trouble-makers.their behaviour is approved by their parents who assist them when the target is an adult. They are against hispanics,if you are from the middle east they call you "Jihadist". God Only knows who else have been victims and kept quiet for the sake of peace !
