At least that is the message we are now getting, loud and clear, from incident after incident, where the victims are attacked for clearly racial reasons, just like this case in Philly, the city of brotherly love:
THREE JUVENILES accused of assaulting a cabdriver and his passenger in Center City Saturday night while shouting racial slurs will not be charged with a hate crime, the District Attorney’s Office said yesterday.
The teens, who are black, were not charged with hate crimes because there was no evidence that the assault had been motivated by the race of the victims, who are white, said Tasha Jamerson, D.A. spokeswoman. Just shouting racial epithets during the commission of a crime doesn’t rise to the level of ethnic intimidation, she said.
Can you imagine the reverse being dismissed as non racial? Some white teens beat up a black whatever, use racial language, and the people that straddled us with the bullshit racial double standards come out and tell us straight faced that it is not clear the attack was motivated by racial reasons? BTW, this is NOT the first of these kinds of attacks. A clear pattern is emerging, and the message is frightening to me: basically we are getting confirmation that our suspicions that all the crusade to deal with their ever prevailing notion of rampant racism against minorities, was not really about getting rid racism, but was a cover to propagate racism in one direction.
“They just didn’t have that in this case,” she said. “If they had somebody who, two blocks before, heard them say, ‘We’re going to beat somebody up because they’re white, brown or purple,’ it might be different.”
How likely are they to apply this same standard when the reverse occurs? Historically the same people now telling us there was no evidence of racism have constantly and consistently impugned anyone else, to the point that they made it obvious they had the ability to read minds or something, when the race baiting machine stood to gain. I guess there is no gain here admitting that this case, which doesn’t fit the narrative, actually is racism pure and simple.
Watch these teens get off with neary a slap. Don’t be surprised if they all take it to mean they have a free hand to do more of this either. That’s exactly the message these people want send.
