    I would say "dresses nicely" for the latter, I don't think the schoolteacher that was prominently featured in some videos going face down into a wall would typically be what one thinks of as "white collar", certainly wasn't dressed like a hipster!

    If I were to guess, kids who do this a lot know how to profile their targets much like a serial rapist does. There's a very distinct possibility and occasional occurrences when the target was either armed or ready for a throw down. I'm guessing, self-preservation instincts do play a role in selection of targets at least for some.

    If a group of white went and knocked out a black guy it's a hate crime. Turn the tables 180 and it's just assholes.

    I heard one of these thugs actually got shot for playing the dumb game with the wrong person

    Right...if it was white on white, it would be called bullying. If it was black on black, it would be called gang activity. If it was white on black, it would be called racism. It's black on white, so it's hard for the media to label. Either way, I agree with most others on here. It's not a hate crime ( I really dislike this term). It's a crime of opportunity. Now it could be a hate crime if they were actually "hunting down" whites to do this, but they aren't.

    I continually see claims both in the media and on this forum that when white people are the victims of crime there is more attention paid.

    Now...................we see the claim of the opposite. Because they are white there will be less consequences.

    Isn't this just a bit disingenuous?

    I'm enjoying the article from Lansing Michigan where a victim shot the dumbass.

    There ARE blacks who get charged and convicted of hate crimes. There was incident last week that happened about 15 minutes away from my house, where five blacks are being charged:

    I know it happens, I'm just talking about the general perception. I, as I said, just think it's hard to label it as hate. Unfortunately, what kids doing things like this does is create more racism. If I'm a kid who gets randomly knocked out by a black guy, I'm gonna grow up not having a very good opinion. In fact, things like this do nothing but further the stereotype. It's a shame, really, that the people involved in stuff like this don't realize the long term affects it has on racial tensions.

    A why isn't it on Fox News, CNN, msnbc? Oh that's right, because the media doesn't like it when it's not white people being racists
