    The writer uses the angle that the 64 year old bus driver should have stopped it. Never mentions the race of the 13 year old beaten by three 15 year old AA thugs. How convenient. Can you imiagine had the races been reversed.

    Horrific beating.

    If those black parents own a house, sue them for the money and put that kid in private school.

    :sick:

    They should be tried as adults.

    Bus driver should have stopped it- if he feared for his safety then he should have called 911- I would go after the kids and the school and maybe even the bus driver

    Why would race be mentioned? Is there a race element that makes it relevant?

    My kids lived and went to school in Gulfport. I can tell you it is not easy for a white male to go to public school there. I am happy that that never happened to my son at 13 to that point and where it was recorded. If that had been the case I would not be a free man today

    Beating him wasn't enough that they actually stole his money, too? Damn.

    Supposedly the kid snitched about drugs.

    It's been awhile since I've been in middle school, but where I am from, fights like this were pretty common. Happens all over the US regularly.

    That is an excellent question that the media forgets to ask itself before they inject race into other stories.

    come on. you can't try to equate just any arrest with an attack that where one side is white and one is black. I defend the media a lot here, but the fact is that white on black is highlighted much more than black on white.
    (not on this board, of course, where some get themselves in a tizzy when they find black people acting badly.)

    Good. Good thing they were caught on video.

    I wonder if the school shouldn't have done something to protect the victim after he told on the other kid(s) selling drugs.

    You almost have to expect there will be retribution for something like that. And the kids he told on ride the same bus?

    Bad situation to leave that boy in.

    No mention here

    Nor here

    Race is mentioned when it has some relevance to the story.

    Race doesn't matter here....my son went to a predominately white middle school in this same district for the last 3 years. These sorts of vicious fights occurred there often between white middle-class children.

    To me a fight indicates both sides are actively engaged. This was far more serious than your typical fight.

    Like when the media called George Zimmerman a "white Hispanic"? That was really relevant....for the "Race Baiting Rent a Riot Reverends" and the MSM

    And you should notice none of these kids were suspended as they still got to ride the bus. I have been there and seen this and I can tell you it is not pretty. Look at the Tampa/St Pete news articles and you will see where they can not get teachers to teach in these schools and many have left that tried it.
