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.

Glenn Beck: ‘I Feel Like I’m Wasting My Life’
After making untold millions off of stoking political division, hysteria, apocalypticism and countless conspiracy theories, right-wing pundit and all-around media mogul Glenn Beck has decided he'd like to focus more on producing movies, because he hates politics and worries he's "wasting [his] life." Speaking with the Hollywood Reporter, Beck said he's planning to refurbish a large studio in Texas in order to eventually ...

The Tea Party Radio Network
Glenn Beck worked the crowd like a preacher at a rally this month in Louisville, Ky., declaring that God had responded to conservatives' prayers by sending a slate of tea party candidates to wrest control of the Republican Party from Mitch McConnell. But there was a more earthly benefit to the arrangement that brought Beck to the rally. It was organized by the ...

Far-Right’s Favourite Outfitter ‘Thor Steinar’ Opens Shop in Heart of London’s Jewish Community

The Viking Thor Shop, which opened in Finchley, North London a fortnight ago, is an outlet for Thor Steinar, a controversial brand whose products are strongly associated with ...

Tennessee Passes Mind-Boggling Ban on Bus Rapid Transit
The impetus for the vote was a proposal to build a $174 million BRT system in Nashville called The Amp, which would've ran on a 7.1 mile route and served rapidly growing neighborhoods across the city. There's a more detailed summary of the project over at The Tennessean. Although BRT has been shown to revitalize economies and reduce congestion, opponents of The Amp ...

Criminalizing Expectant Mothers - NYT
Even by the standards of the growing Republican assault on the lives and rights of women, a new bill passed by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Tennessee's Legislature recently stands out for being meanspirited and counterproductive. If signed by the state's Republican governor, Bill Haslam, the legislation would give Tennessee the dubious distinction of being the first state to specifically authorize the ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’
What Calgary police chief Rick Hanson called the "worst mass murder" in the city's history didn't end at the barrel of a gun. Instead, the 22-year-old suspect identified on Tuesday as Matthew de Grood is accused of entering the kitchen at a house party, taking "a large knife" and using it to fatally stab four men and one woman, all of whom were students ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

 Frank says:

Mr Zappa, I am astounded at the courtesy and soft voiced nature of the comments of my friend, the Senator from Tennessee. I can only say that I find your statement to be boorish, incredibly and insensitively insulting to the people who were here previously, that you could manage to give the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States a bad name, if I felt you had the slightest understanding of it, which I do not. -- - Senator Slade Gorton
