This is become almost comical. Wheres Homeland Security when you need them?? Why is it only a Hate Crime when its against a black? Is it still a Hate Crime when they find a black done it? Can you say Tawanna?
Yes, I can say Tawana, I can say Megar, Emmett Till and a whole host of other names of people who have been victimized by White people and it being "justified" by white looker-ons. Check out http://www.reinstatealtonmaddox.com/tbrawleyf... for information on the Tawana Brawley case that you would be pressed to find in the midst of white media.

Ok first of all it was most likely an inside job. Yes, there are MANY racist cops on the forde in the city of Bridgeport. We have way too much going on in this city for them to make this a priority. Can we say the EASTSIDE? Come on the cops do NOTHING on that side of town, guns blaze, dealers run the streets, the youth walks arround like they know it all, which to add most of which are moms or dads by the age of 16 because their parent are one of these gun blazing dealers. Cops get it together, lets follow the 8 year olds home to ask why they are running the street at 1am, if the teens are walking arround during school hours, bring to school, if there are drug dealers in plain sight making sales, lock them up, when you are called for shots being fired, don't take 2 hours.
Racism is bigger now in 2007 then ever before, the spanish don't like the blacks the blacks don't like the spanish and neither of them like or are like by the whites. Well I don't mind what color, race or what God if any you praise, if you are doing grime you are who I am racist against.
This was worth using energy to write? To you and others who say why this is a priority to address--consider the answer if you were the person who had a picture of your family left under you car with a crimson "x" over the faces of each person in the picture. That would scare the hell out of you, wouldn't it? Well, the noose represents the same thing. Who are you to determine the significance if being addressed if (1) you nor any of your family members were terrified by it or (2) you aren't knowledgable of the historical symbolism of it.

Grow tolerance. Grow as an individual.

Just becasue people disagree it doesn't make them a racist, you obviously must learn and accept to agree to disagree.

To all the posters who have taken the time and energy to blame the victim--
You are the reason why ignorance and hatred has prevailed in this country that, almost comically, coins itself as "Home of the Brave, Land of the Free". What is brave about hanging a noose and running away for it to be investigated? But to ask or even answer that question, we must ask, what is so brave about lynching black men and women in angry white mobs for sport?
Lynching is what the noose represents. To suggest that a black person would plant that themselves for attention is an attempt to detract from the very real history of white people mentally, physically, socially and politically using any means necessary to bully black people into submission. The previous ignorant postings are in the same vein of such hatred.
It is a shame that many of you feel that in speaking your mind and blaming the woman who had to find such a horrible symbol under her car, you are saying something that is sensible and truthful. What you are really doing is showing your racist colors for what they are. Do you look in the mirror and feel proud for the racist you are?

First of all, you fail to read the point of the post-- people on this thread aren't merely disagreeing, they are denouncing the woman who has been harassed and threatened before an investigation has even taken place. An assumption has already been made-- not because they know her, or know of the specifics--but on the fact that she is a black woman. Because she is black, the ignorant posters on this thread have illogically inferred that she is either lying or overacting. That is racist. The notion that a black person is lying, being dramatic or irrational or that it is an injustice that they are seeking justice are only the thoughts and belief of a racist-- someone who believes that their own race's needs, wants and self-preservation is of the utmost importance in relation to others.

The whole barackobamajr name thing is so ridiculous and, yes, another example of your disrespectful and racist ways. You really think you're a riot, don't you? Grow up and get a clue.

Do you pay taxes? You apparantly haven't utilized the taxes that pay for schooling because your post reeks of illiterate trailer-park-dom. My bad. Was that racist?
Did you protest government use of our taxes to fund the war? or racial profiling? or any number of irrelevant government spending sprees. This is ACTUALLY something that is worthy of attention. Use your energy for that fight Einstein. Who ever heard of ignoring a stalker, killer, menance to society rather than apprehending them? You must be friends with barackobamajr.

The cops are out there. What an ignorant comment. You don't see them all the time and that's a good thing. They see and know what's going on and are patiently waiting for the right moment. The crime is not as easy to detect as you say it is.

Listen, just look at the news and see that across this nation racism is alive and kicking and this blended land.
Before you go spouting off, better think first why "people of color" are looked down upon. It's because of self-inflected hoaxes like this one. Sure, I ALWAYS look under my patrol car for a noose. Give me a break. She probably saw a twist-tie from a loaf of bread and thought "hey, that gives me an idea". I'm gonna blame whitey and be famous in my department 'cause ah's black. What a piece of work!! Typical. Why are you so shocked with this post's replies? You blacks made your own bed, now sleep in it!

Agreed. The colored generally cannot be trusted.
