    How do you get hate crime from that? It said there was an argument

    What details in the article make it sound like a hate crime?

    That was between the two white people, male and female.

    Right, but it's the only real detail in the article. And the men approached during that argument. If there's a hate crime element involved it sure isn't in the linked article.

    There's no mention of race at all in the article, that I saw.

    Well, the first article showed the mugshots and the couple was white. All who fled were black. It also said the couple were not arguing at the time.

    I guess my question should read, if a group of white youth walked up to a black couple and executed the guy, would that be a hate crime? Would we hear about it on the national news?

    Did they change the link? the article said nothing about a group of black youth. And the male being charged is getting murder 1 not sure how much more you could add to that.

    ^^^

    I think the point the OP was making, was that because the assailants were black and the vic's white, 'hate crime' isn't mentioned; however, if a group of white assailants approached a black couple....and proceeded to kill them--it would be national news, under the headline:

    "Slain couple victims of hate crime murder" or such.

    Let '75 correct me if I misunderstood, but that's what I figured he was saying--and it seem somewhat confirmed in his latter post.

    He's not saying that the assailants are, or should be charged with 'hate crimes'.

    Somehow I get the feeling there are dozens of black-on-white and white-on-black crimes that are not called a "hate crime" every daY.

    there is actually a book about this truth. How many heinous black on white crimes go completely unreported nationally where crimes of far less severity (or malice) by whites on blacks get a far wider range and type of coverage.

    this has been going on for years now......nothing new

    Ok that wasn't exactly what I was saying.

    I don't remember people having these persecution complexes when I was a kid. Must be a new phenomenon.

    this has nothing to do with complexes. this is a matter of factual (not opinion) commentary on news reporting in this country.

    Outside of global warming, there is no bigger joke than a "hate crime"

    Obama is the the "new phenomenon" - he's the one that is dividing our country into to distinct camps that are beginning to hate each other simply for being an "R" or a "D" voter.

    When Obama went on is world wide 'bowing and apology tour' only to come home and follow it with his 'hate the Pubs tour' - that's when and where we got to this point we're at right now.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/media-continues-to-censor-black-on-white-crime



    several media outlets have admitted to the practice of downplaying black on white crime....so where you came up with this being a complex?????

    the only mistake in this article is that they are making this seem like a recent phenomena. Like I stated earlier, I read a book about "media practices" over a decade ago which chronicled the exact same type of racial censorship.
