Violent racism is springing up many places it seems.

Just last week a mob of 50-100 black teenagers gathered outside the Wisconsin State Fair, beating random defenseless people simply because they were white.

Sometimes I really don't like this state. The coast is nice but it seems the further North you go the weirder it gets.

I thought the details of this incident were disputed?

Violent racism has always been a part of this country. When has it not?

re: #1 TampaKnight

Link please to show it was "because they were white." I saw blacks and whites both were targeted.

He went from 100 to 300 in about 2 seconds. A bit hyperbolic, don't you think? Understandable under that stress, but not sure you can call it accurate.

This report, from Fox no less, seems to show black and white both were targeted.

And what the hell does that have to do with running over and killing a a black man in Mississippi? Where the stronghold of racism lives in this country.

I had dreadful experiences with racism as a kid in Milwaukee. No, not from the Black community, but there's a strong neo-Nazi influence there. In fact, all the racism I experienced as a kid was while living in Milwaukee. I lived in 6 different states until I was 17.

My point was that it's disingenuous and idiotic to only highlight one form of racism, when it's clear that racism comes with every race and it's a problem no matter WHO is doing it.

When I was a kid living in St. Louis, I still vividly remember a case where 2 white guys jumped a black teenager by the riverwalk. A day later, a gang of 5 black men went through a white neighborhood and shot up 3 houses, killing 1 person and severely injuring 3.

If you're trying to justify the killing of James Anderson or make it a meaningless act because "everyone is racist", you FAIL.

Or maybe you're trying to play down the effects of racism on the Black community. You FAIL there too.

re: #7 TampaKnight

It's moronic to demand someone reporting on a racist killing of a black man by white supremacists, that they include incidents of other cases being violent.

It's also fucking weird.
