Actually you get the same thing in Australia.
There seems to be more than a reluctance to make racist attacks on caucasians a mainstream news item.
Even some journalists will acknowledge that racism is possible if you are white.
I can recall one heated debate, post article, where the shocked journalist finally acknowledged that possiblity after people posted their experiences, but added, "You can't tell me though, that racist attacks on white people happen to the same extent as non white".

How would one know? The fact is surveys or studies do not ask white people of 'racist' experiences and data is not collected.

The fact is, racism is racism, regardless of the colour of the perpertrator or victim.
If for example, a black person said they experienced racism, I would believe it, but by the same token a white person said they experienced racism, I would believe it.

Racism is if nothing equal. It doesn't matter what age or colour you are, it happens.

What is the status of the two BLACK SAVAGES that shot the sleeping 2 year old in his stroller?

The media quickly forgets or in most cases fails to report the savage actions these APES commit.

Yet even our boob of a President had something to say about this Criminal predator Trayvon.

No one dares to acknowledge the daily attacks committed by black offenders.

So even in the extreme nature of those attacks, you see a great reluctance to use the word RACIST or even RACIALLY motivated, but rather use the politically correct and less offensive "ethnically motivated hate crime".

Yet, you will get a white person, rightfully being outed for what I would describe as cowardly and repulsive racist behaviour when abusing a French woman described as:
RACIAL BUS TIRADE:
"Detectives seek those captured on a viral video in a racial abuse incident on a Melbourne bus..."

As I say, racism has no colour. Just call it for what it is and leave the politically correct crap out of it, otherwise it will never be truly addressed.

What is the color of the white savage who killed twenty 6 year olds, shooting them ten and eleven times each?

So let's review, two blacks kill on baby, one white kills twenty.

you are correct, a white savage did kill those kids and we can read about it still to this day. Two apes shoot a sleeping baby in the face.....blink and you missed the report.

Black crime on Whites is way under reported and the shame of it is for the most part they are killing their own at an alarming rate....but that means nothing to most because theres not a real news story with that.....just another day in the hood.

Very true. We have Casey Anthony stories at least once a year here in Cleveland. But nobody knows about it because nationally, nobody would watch it. Nobody cares about a fat black woman and an ugly black baby. Now if a nice looking white woman does the same thing, everybody in TV land is watching and media sells a lot of advertisement. They find the most adorable picture of the child and keep pasting it on your television set.

Funny how the liberal media fixates on a white guy who killed 20 children instead of two black teenagers who killed one white kid.

Eh?

Look at this guy:

SHINGLETOWN, Calif.ó A sheriff's official says the Northern California search for an ex-convict suspected of fatally shooting his wife and two young daughters is akin to warfare.

Shasta County Sheriff's Lt. Dave Kent says SWAT teams are proceeding extremely cautiously on Thursday in the area near the Humboldt County city of Petrolia where 45-year-old Shane Miller's truck was found the previous day.

I drop by on these boards to check out the old libs. Is there a method for your conduct? The sexual comments offer a glimpse into your soul.

In the cyber world that which we all must dwell, it is wise for one to screen the on-line habits of barefoot. We must protect our precious offspring from the dangers of his blust. This is a given. It was true before Al Gore invented the intertube wans. A Christian in these modern times has to be able to adapt to the temptations of Satan as He evolves His temptations into the technologies of the day. Thus the evolving "Barefoot" son of Satan. Get my coffee son !!!! Ah the lyrics of a pagan !!!
