Nebraska black population 3.94% per last census. I can live with that.

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."
That's good, we don't want this tried as something severe like "hate crime". This is clearly a less severe crime because there is no hate involved.

I still don't understand why hate crime needs special legislation, other than lessening the punishment for other violent crimes without a specific thought involved.

Birmingham and Mississippi are strange places. When I hauled cars for a dealer I always worked in those cities and heard some pretty outrageous stories.

Sorry Brainy, but all of that looked staged to me.



I've been saying this ---- for a long time now. With the power of the internet, you better watch what you do. Just look at how many times us bros here at MT have banded together for some just cause.

As bad as the interweb can be, its such a great tool to those who use it for the right reasons. Money can be haz. Power in number can be haz. Knowledge can be haz. Dreams can be haz.

Couldn't be a hate crime; they all just loved beating on him.
