by the way. Racism is every where even in nyc. it just seems more so because there is so many white people that look down on anyone different then themselves. At least the white and black southerners can stand together and hate the influx of yankees.

Given the currnet PC movement highlighted by the Dog the Bounty Hunter's use of the N word all of the rappers use and having his TV show pulled off of the air it is appropriate that Snipes be charged with uttering "Hate Speech". The KKK is a terrible organization and to accused the citizens of Ocala of harboring such a dark crowd is hateful and harmful.

Jables, the name calling reveals that you are a BIGOT. What a shame that black folk feel that it is perfectly acceptable to call white people "good old boys" or "cracker". Well guess what I know you are...

if that is the case snipes must provide evidence for his statement otherwise it is just hot air. anyone who is affiliated with such an organization would be kicked off of the jury right away.

For those criticizing Snipes - he's not too far off base. For a town the size of Ocala they have had an unusually high number of KKK related incidents. Take a look:

http://www.adl.org/Learn/Events_2001/events_a...
"On March 19, 2005, CHS hosted another St. Patrick’s Day concert, but the venue this time was located in Ocala. About 75 racists attended the gathering.
The following year, on March 17, 2006, CHS again hosted about 100 people on private property in the Ocala National Forest at a white power rock concert that featured several racist bands, including Attack, Definite Hate, Platoon 14, Red, White & Black, Youngblood, and Youngland."
National Socialist Movement - As its rivals collapsed in factional infighting, the National Socialist Movement became by default the largest neo-Nazi group in the country. It has been active in Florida, where in February 2006 it held a public march organized by the unit leader, David Gletty, who also led paramilitary trainings in the Ocala National Forest. Gletty resigned from the National Socialist Movement in September 2006 but reportedly still organizes militia-style trainings.
Fair is Fair. No whites should have to stand trial in Broward county. no whites hould have to stand trial in Detroit, La, NY, you name it. We will be moving court appearances all over the place if this is allowed. why doesn't he want to pay taxes anyway? His taxes are mainly supoorting his people.

What a racist loser this guy is. When is the last time anyone or any news source reported the Klan having any kind of activity.
It seems that he should be targeting Jesse Jackson and Rev. Sharpton's areas as "hotbeds" for racial hate activities.

alabama jack, you are using statistics to tell a lie. just because 1 in 10 men black men are in jail, that doesn't mean that they are actually guilty. it also doesn't mean that 1 in 10 black people are criminals.
second of all, by the mere fact that the african american population in this country is tremendously smaller than the whites', there could be more white males in prison by far and it could still be a smaller percentage because of how many white males they are.
we aren't even the largest minority anymore.
third of all, most of the people who go to concerts and buy rap music are not even black, so there goes your entire theory right out of the door.
Congratulations.....
Well said, well said indeed

Marion Barry, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Michael Vicks, Ice Cube, ect ect all good example for the black community to follow. Please keep producing these fine unstanding men to lead the black race. White people we have nothing to worry about
Please inform me as to where did the white community get the mitigating gall and audacity to assign these people as the spokespersons for the black population in America. They have never been and never will be the voice of Black America as we are too vast, diverse and articulate to be categorized as the black community as a whole. My peers are educated, wholesome, christian people who can't be typecast by a person who doesn't have the grasp of the english language to abbreviate etcetera or spell outstanding. Please stop the generalization and the hate.

I just feel sorry for white people too...they have it so bad, like, owning most of the companies in the country...not being turned down for a job unless the company hasn't hired it's token black...not being pulled over by the police because they fit a description....not getting an unfair trial because they're pale...not worrying about being discriminated against if there are kkk members sitting on the jury....the list goes on, and on...one thing i actually do feel sorry for you about is being dumb enough to elect Bush.

His taxes are supporting whites since there are more whites on welfare than blacks. Kudos to you Wesley...stick it to the man!!!
