I don't disagree in that theoretically, the guy had the right to take a swing at the black guy.
But, you are saying that the white guy is the aggressor, correct? And that he didn't get randomly mugged/KO'd/etc. out of nowhere?
The white guy acted "aggressive" AFTER, the black guy was one of the few that initiated it. To me, they are the aggressors.
Except for the problem of the new video distinctly showing no punches/kicks/etc. like you claimed before, Vash.
Watch the first video again. I see punches and kicks from both men and women.
What the guy did was retarded.
I'm guessing he was either drunk or just scared and reacted. He didnt know how to fight, but he tried to do something. +1 to him for at least trying.
What you never, ever do is go into a bad neighborhood, then be the aggressor in any fight. Period.
He wasn't the aggressor. I slightly agree with not going into bad neighborhoods, but why not, the bad people come to our good neighborhoods when they want. You just better have good reason and be prepared.
You can say "Oh, but it's so awful!"
It is awful! What the ---- is the matter with you?
This is nothing new. Not to mention it already has, and is only going to get worse.
Here's the reality. The white guy was in a bad neighborhood. He couldn't keep his calm. He went after someone. He got his *** knocked out.
I'd love to see you in his shoes and watch you try and talk your way out of it. In the end, only to get pummeled, robbed, and stripped anyways.
You can say "Oh, but but but..." all you want. I wouldn't open carry a handgun and not expect to get hassled from the police. You don't chase someone down and prepare to fight them and realize you may not get KO'd in turn. You don't do this in a bad neighborhood and then suddenly expect everything to be a-okay - and it doesn't matter what race that neighborhood is. If a black guy tried that on a white guy, or a (insert race guy) tried that on a (insert difference race guy) in a similar bad neighborhood, I'd be surprised if the guy didn't get carried out on a stretcher.
I honestly don't think it was all that bad of a neighborhood, nor were the black guys that "thuggish". If it was, or they were, he'd be in worse shape. It still doesn't mean its no big deal. This kind of BS is cool to some people. Attack a pregnant girl. Attack a mother and her child in MCD's. Jump one guy with 10 of your friends. Etc etc.
Blaen, I don't think your a bad guy at all, really, but you cant argue with everyone just to argue. Its almost like no matter which way the conversation goes, you'll argue it, GAURENTEED. I told myself I wasn't going to do this, because I don't DO THIS, but then I smoked a FAT bowl pack and took a shot of jack.
what? it was fake. not a real site. they fake videos. i was baiting you the whole time.

But please, post their responses while they laugh their asses off at you. It will be entertaining.
I cannot believe some people in here truly think a video only posted at sites like Liveleak and Kaotic is for real and serious. This would be plastered all the ---- over a ton of places (All of which I am checking right now) if it was the real deal. The only thing I've found on it so far is a thread laughing their *** off at the poor editing quality.

You have no argument from me that racism, both ways, exists, and that black on white hate crime is lesser reported than white on black.
However, just as equally, I find it absolutely pitiful on several poster's here parts that they said one thing on the Trayvon thread, then did the exact opposite thing with this video - even going so far as to defend certain parts of it that they decried with Trayvon.
I was baiting you into posting that, Brainy. Haven't you ever looked at youtube.com? Complete troll site. People just post videos in order to maximize clicks. They probably edit them to make them interesting or compelling or something, too, which is a clear sign of a troll site.
4/10 UPDATE: Baltimore's police chief today said that the videotaped beating of a white tourist does not appear to be a hate crime, but rather "drunken opportunistic criminality" on the part of a gang of Charm City assailants.
In a radio interview, Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III urged Baltimore residents to "distinguish between criminality and racially motivated crime." Bealefeld, who is white, warned against "race-baiting" and "fear-mongering" in light of the Trayvon Martin shooting and other recent racially charged incidents.
"There's no doubt it's a crime," Bealefeld said of the March 17 assault. "We need to vigorously hold criminals accountable, and we have to be careful not to be pulled into this race-baiting."
