Six African American students beat and stomped a white student into unconsciousness then apparently continued to beat and stomp him. They did it apparently simply because he was white. Shouldn't they have been charged with a hate crime?
Then there is the reason for the attack. White students put three hangman's nooses in a tree that three African Americans dared to sit under. Apparently the white students considered the shade tree to be for whites only. The nooses were put there to intimidate the black students. Isn't intimidation a crime? Shouldn't Jesse Jackson and the African American community be demanding the local district attorney bring up criminal charges against the white students that put the nooses in the tree?
To Jesse Jackson: Which issue is more important?
Prevent whites from thinking it is acceptable to put hangman's nooses in trees to intimidate the African American community.
Or equal punishment. Just because white students are incorrectly given light punishment, should black students be given light punishment for beating the snot out of a white student simply because he was white?
