I know that I quoted it. I fucking made the post.

What media outlet specifically did you see it on? At the time of posting it, I believe it had only been on Fox's news 29 - local news.

NBC, CBS, CNN, Mediaite, UK Guardian, HuffPo, WaPo, Drudge, not sure where I didn't see it. Now run along and play in traffic before some big bad scary black woman comes and beats you up like they used to in elementary school. How many blacks are in Canada anyway?

If you're an asshole you will have awful experiences no matter where you live. Asshole.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

I can't wait for people to blame this on liberals.

Wish granted.

Fucking liberals.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

RE: Hate crime - torture - against white disabled teen
In this instance racism is relevant. The attackers are heard on video using racial statements.

CNN article

Quote:His attackers laugh and shout "f*ck Donald Trump" and "f*ck white people" as they kick and punch him.

Anyone can be racist. The numerous incidents of racism highlighted during the election were white-black, white-Hispanic and white-muslim. In this case it is black-white.

There are many motivations for committing crimes and some are judged by society to be worse than others.

Racism makes a crime worse because it inherently dehumanizes the victim and empowers the perpetrator. Societies profess that there are basic human rights that apply to all people. Racism proclaims that one race is superior and that other races are inferior, less deserving of the same rights.

Racism allows people to justify actions that they would otherwise abhor. Like religion, racism can convince "good" people to do "bad" things.

No we don't. Please tell us why.

No "mainstream" media? It even made headlines Downunder: reported News Corp Australia Network, 5 January 2017, 3:26PM AEDT.

I searched for it on CNN. CNN has reported on it. Very strange, I thought they wouldn't give a fuck.
