btw the title says 5 black men, actually it's 4 and a woman!
ya .. one looks like a chick. either way .. it's pretty fu*ked up. it's definitely sick. as far as this being classified as a hate crime .. i don't think it qualifies because race doesn't seem to be a motive. it seems like a car jacking that spiralled into a horror film. this is just so astonishingly horrible ..
as far as the "cover up" being reverse racism .. what the hell is reverse racism ??? is it when black people do something to white people based solely on race ? if that's the case, it's just plain racism. the fact that people think racism only goes one way it's just plain stupid and is evidence of prejudice. to be quite honest, in my experience, black people can be just as racist if not more than white people. that's why i don't understand it and am actually offended when black people get upset when someone who isn't black says "nigg a" .. not even "nigg er" but "nigg a" cuz they're the same people who say in the word's defense that there's a difference between "nigg a" and "nigg er". and what's the main support "it's not your word to say"
get the fu*k out of here. if u wanna go with that line of thinking, it's not the black man's word at all. it's the white man's word for you !! let's get that straight. now, over the years we've been able to take away some of the power the word has in the form of "nigg a". but to say that a black man can say it and a white man can't is quite simply racist. so how do u f!ght racism with racism ? it's fu*king idiotic and i don't care what anyone says. if ur gonna use the word, respect it. respect the fact that some if not many will be offended. respect the fact that it has been used in the past to hurt people. respect the fact that it has also been used as a term of endearment. respect the fact that if ur going to use it, anyone else has just as much right as u do regardless of the individual's race. u can't f!ght racism with racism. u can't say "only the black man can use it" because ur being racist by saying that.
i don't mean to sound off topic but the very idea of "reverse-racism" is simply ludicrous to me. there is no such thing .. it is simply racism. to say racism goes one way is racist in itself. sometimes, people today still amaze me.
anyways .. those guys should be seeing the firing squad or at least multiple life sentences. i'm no legal junkie, but an eye for an eye. i don't neccessarily believe the same should be done to them, but they should suffer until they break and fold and sink in that suffering until they are on the verge of suicide and then denied the OPPORTUNITY of death.
