WWII vet, 88, dies after random beating by two teens
Delbert (Shorty) Belton, 88, was meeting a friend to play pool when two teenage brutes attacked him in at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane, Wash., cops said. The elderly victim, who was shot in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa, died at a hospital Thursday morning.
My right wing mother and her right wing siblings are clamoring for this to become the top news headline. She's accusing tv networks of "hiding" the story because they're not obsessing over it the way Fox News is.
She also claimed tht "liberals" are claiming that the guys who killed the Australian jogger "didn't have enough food stamps when they were growing up."
It's been top news on CNN all morning but I'm sure that won't assuage wingnuts like R1's momma.
Horrible incident. If Obama had a son, he'd look like one of the killers.
This is how liberels treat are VETS!!!!1
A Clockwork Orange is coming true.
Anyone want to buy a large porcelain dildo? I've decided I don't want it anymore.
r7 Is it black?
This is unbearably sad. Having said that, string the little darlings up.
Interesting that there is less outrage on this. Think the trial will have wall-to-wall coverage?
Identify the suspects
Please don't let them...oh what the hell.
Let us not have a rush to judgment!
I say kill the little motherfuckers.
The boys were never given a chance in life. Society is to blame. They are good kids who have been victimized by white oppression. This is a wake-up call to America to see the results of racism. They are the true victims.
R15, let's get a grip, please.
It was Gay Panic. They thought he was cruising them, and flew into a blind rage.
Regarding the OK incident involving the Aussie baseball player, Rev. Al Charlatan said on MSNBC that it cannot be considered a racial incident, since one of the three attackers was white.
He also said that he only becomes involved in crimes such as Trayvon Martin when he's "called upon".
It is obvious by now that America has a very serious black problem
[quote]The boys were never given a chance in life. Society is to blame. They are good kids who have been victimized by white oppression. This is a wake-up call to America to see the results of racism. They are the true victims.
Oh, STFU! You wouldn't be saying the same thing, if it was your father getting hurt. These kids had a choice, and they choose to kill a war hero in cold blood.
So much for Obama's "Hope and Change" . . .
One of them is white? If you mean Michael Dewayne Jones (far right), he looks about half or 1/4 white. I think that's called mullatto south of the Mason Dixon Line.
It's awful. But, it would be just as awful if we were not a WWII vet.
Actually, r19, the white boy is mixed.... white mother, black father.
Just heard that on CNN from the Oklahoma prosecutor. He said he doesn't think this is a hate crime though.
Why isn't Oprah commenting on racism when its blacks against whites?
Why is it a joke? Isn't there an actual legal standard for hate crimes - the crime committed accompanied by threats based on race, sexuality, etc., or simply racial, etc. remarks, threat or not, made during the commission of the crime.
I don't think it's enough to simply kill someone of a different race.
R27, because It wouldn't provide positive publicity for her film and potential Oscar nomination.
I guess you haven't seen the shooter's tweets, r28?
R27 is right.
I expect this thread will be taken down real soon...
It won't; there is no criticism of Israel.
R21 is more than just a little bit retarded
Christopher Lane, a 23 year old Australian ball player gets shot in the back while jogging. Three African American teenage thugs are arrested. they said they did it because they were "bored." One of them did a little dance while he was being booked. At least one of them tweeted about how much he hated white people before the killing. It was a hate crime.
In Georgia two teenage thugs attempt to rob a woman with a baby in a stroller. She resisted, so one of them shot and killed the baby. They're on trial for the killing now.
A helpless, defenseless 88 year old war veteran is set upon by two teenage thugs and beaten to death for no apparent reason. One of them has been arrested.
I hope all of these young sociopaths get life in prison and suffer greatly.
It's not going to be a hate crime because the three of them went to the house of a black kid with the intent to kill him after they shot tje white guy. It's how they got picked up by police. The kid's father called the cops.
So they shot a white guy and were doing their best to shoot a black guy. Equal opportunity killers.
Delbert Belton is the man's name, and this story just makes me want to cry. You survive WWII with a bullet wound, you live to be 88, and you get killed by two piece of shit thugs in a parking lot. It is just awful.
These stories are horrible. I was reminded of this story, which shockingly didn't get a lot of coverage.
I hate the new teen generation with a passion. I am only 33, but I do not trust anyone under 25. The high tech "social" network generation are a bunch of soulless zombies, who should be sterilized. I hope those heartless thugs suffer in prison.
[quote] In Georgia two teenage thugs attempt to rob a woman with a baby in a stroller. She resisted, so one of them shot and killed the baby. They're on trial for the killing now.
I don't believe they did that crime. I think the patents did it and that the younger teen has made a deal to confess and send the older teen away. Cops tell kids they're in deep shit; they're going to death row or looking at 40 years unless they confess and put the onus on their friend.
R38, I have never heard about that incident. Awful. That poor couple. One of the worst stories I've read. So many psychopaths running around these days. Truly humanity has bred too much.
It's not a black issue - Latin American and Caribbean black people don't behave like ghetto African-Americans.
It's a black American cultural issue. You can arrive in America as a Delta Blues enthusiast, sympathetic to blacks, and after interacting with enough theatrical, immoderate, combative, tactless, grandiose Laqueeshas...you start to dread interacting with people who seem to be living in some Tyler Perry/gospel choir scene all the time.
You can pretend that you react the same way to seeing a troop of Korean Boy Scouts approaching you as you do to a group of black teens in wifebeaters and do-rags, but you don't. You are assessing risk, and your judgement tells you that the Korean kids are much lower risk.
Christopher Lane was shot by Black American trash, and as that culture expands and European-America culture recedes, the US will become a Third World shithole.
Jesse Jackson says the execution of Christopher Lane should be "frowned upon". As long as charlatans like these worse-than-Don King buffoons are taken seriously, we're screwed.
The murdered vet, Christopher Lane and his family are better people, better citizens than the trash who shot the vet and Lane, in the back. I wish we had more of the former amd less of the latter.
Black America needs a serious attitude adjustment from being a vulgar, ignorance-celebrating, grudge-nursing culture of mediocrity.
Not so much posturing from 1600 Penn on these crimes...
"I don't believe they did that crime. I think the patents did it and that the younger teen has made a deal to confess and send the older teen away.'
That's the defense the young thug's lawyers are using: the "patents" did it.
The little bastards shot that baby. I hope they get put away for life.
I'm beginning to think we need to take tougher action against teens, and I'm usually more liberal when it comes to criminal law.
If we try to do anything to protect society from this kind of violence it is important that we monitor elderly white women in wheelchairs at the same rate as other groups so that we don't engage in dreaded profiling.
But when a white person commits a crime, it's not an indictment against "White America," is it, R42?
You are lumping individuals, or even cultural subsets, into one.
Racists like yourself are never part of the solution.
There is a very serious problem in our country and no one is really addressing it, for fear of being called "racists!"
r46 I'm sorry but white male teens don't do this kind of violent crime, except for a few isolated incidents. Black male teens are in the news almost daily for violent attacks.
I have never been accosted or attacked by a group of white kids walking down the street. Black kids are a different story.
One kid already said that the other was the shooter and that the shooter counted down from 5.
He's going to testify in court. Has probably let the police know what was done with the gun.
r46, it is, but it's not framed in the same way.
It's a class issue more than a cultural issue to me. Because America never dealt honestly with slavery's legacy, the racial aspect is more prominent than it should be.
All ethnic groups have a criminal group that has unique cultural elements. White, UK descendents are included.
Murders happen every day in this country, blacks get killed all the time. Why is it only a serious problem when the victim is white? Blaming all blacks for the crimes of some black individuals and becoming upset only when the victim is white is certainly racist.
Payback for slavery?
[quote]It's not a black issue - Latin American and Caribbean black people don't behave like ghetto African-Americans.
Ummm...have you been around Jamaicans? The level of violence, misogyny and homophobia is equal to, if not higher than African-Americans. This includes the diaspora.
Of course, that doesn't include all people of island descent, but the sub-group is there.
[quote]It's a black American cultural issue.
Best example: The Virgin Islands. US vs. British. (within sight of each other)
All the blacks were slaves from the same part of Africa.
British Virgin Islands blacks are as pleasant as anyone you'd like to meet.
American Virgin Islands blacks are angry and bitter and there is lots of crime.
Cause: The 1960's and the American "civil rights" movement.
r38, I think the Wichita Massacre was just as sadistic. I hate all murderers, regardless of color. I really do not know how America will ever survive all this violence. It seems our society is ripping apart at the seams lately.
Hey Liberals! How is that "diversity is wonderful" shit going for you now???
r51, if white people try to comment on it as a general civic issue, we are told to fuck off and mind our own business. This is especially true if people tell the truth about who is committing the crimes, and promote a community *and* judicial solution.
Then, when the shit hits the fan, as it has in Toronto and the rest of Canada, we're accused of not caring unless someone gets killed.
In TO this was a huge controversy many years ago when the government started deporting people who'd committed crimes (back to Jamaica, for the majority).
Jamaican-Canadians were outraged and claimed this was only done to blacks. Meanwhile, whites from the UK and other EU countries had always been deported, but at lower rate. The difference was the Jamaicans had ties to very violent gangs taking over the drug trade, so it looked disproportionate.
I hope Charles Manson is wrong!!
Look at the statistics r51.
Black on white crime is epidemic.
What's covered by msm and what actually occurs are two different things, R48. The only time I was ever a victim of violent crime it was perpetrated by a white male. It didnt make the papers.
Additionally, crime and economic disadvantage are perpetually linked. Violent crime is committed by the impoverished (white collar crime by another faction, but again, "white culture" won't get the rap for that either). Blacks are overwhelmingly impoverished in this country. People wring their hands and say something must be done, but bitch and moan about any programs or outreach that might help the disadvantaged move into the mainstream.
People want to ignore the injustices of the past; slavery, Jim Crow, racism like that demonstrated in this thread. The impact doesn't disappear because you want it to or because it affects the people you don't want it to. Redress is imperative. Otherwise, reap what you have sown.
R60 Maybe whites are provoking us. Ever think of that? Maybe that old man talked smack to those kids. He didn't deserve to die but maybe he started shit.
black on white rape.
R61, that is BS!!!
Thanks for the scholarly input, R64.
Ebony and ivory

oh, Lord, why can't we?
[quote] One kid already said that the other was the shooter and that the shooter counted down from 5.
Take a look at the Central Park 5 case. All 5 admitted being present as the crime took place. All pointed fingers at each other, claiming the other guys did the raping.
There was not one shred of DNA or forensic evidence linking them to the crime. The thing that convicted them were confessions that were coerced out of them by cops, claiming that the kids were going to go to jail for life unless they confessed and took a plea.
Years later, the real perpetrator confessed. His was the only DNA at the crime scene. He was a serial rapist. The kids who confessed were coerced. All had slready served their full terms except for one guy, who temained imprisoned (he is the only one who refused to sign or videotape a confession).
So it doesn't matter what the kid says on the witness stand. If the cops convinced him that's he's going down for the crime no matter what, he'll take a plea and throw his friend under a bus. He can't afford decent lawyers. He doesn't want to go to jail for a crime he didn't commit. So he'll sell his friend under the bus.
Walking While White.
You reap what you sew.
Maybe the majority of blacks are violent, ignorant thugs.
There are millions more impoverished whites than blacks in this country. Ever been to Appalachia? Taken a tour of the Deep South? Poor whites don't do this shit, except for isolated incidents. Blacks do it in every neighborhood they inhabit. It's something more than poverty at work here.
I don't hate whites I just ignore them, that's what my late mom taught me. That works well for me in my life. I live and let live and they don't exist in my world. Stay out of my back yard and I stay out of yours. Mom taught me that dealing with whites won't end good for us, so I keep my distance. I would never hurt anyone unless I was defending myself.
r72, rednecks are insular and live in rural areas, where this shit is not reported, either to LEOs or in the media.
R70, you are sew, sew rong.
Not true r74. I grew up in poor, rural Maine and you could sleep with the doors unlocked. The amount of physical assault and property theft was dramatically lower. People certainly would report it; it just didn't happen frequently at all.
Race war is nigh!!
Could someone start a thread on Gracey Square Psychiatric Hospital? I walked by it the other day and was struck by how forbidding and decrepit it looked. It's on 76th between 1st and York and its Yelp reviews--and the few other things about it that I could find online--state that it's a house of horrors that should have been closed a long time ago.
Do any of the many NYers on here know about it? Why is it still open if it's such a mess? Is it a HHC hospital?
Thanks in advance to the OP who posts this.
He was robbed and beaten to death with a flashlight.
No, R74, a staggering number of Latinos are also impoverished, but their crime rates are not as high as it is for blacks. And there is a larger Latino population in America.
There already is a race war r77. Or do you mean whites are going to now pick up a weapon?
Correction to R78--it's between 1st and 2nd on the Upper East Side.
r81, ghetto blacks love their weapons
Ha Ha, R73. I was raised the same way, except my momma taught me to avoid Puerto Ricans and Mexicans too. LOL. She said they were all white devils. I don't really agree that all are bad, but the bad ones are the ones that keep our lives in turmoil. There are a few good whites. I don't hate anyone though.
The problem is ignorant, fucked up single black "mothers" who don't instill one shred of decency in their feral children.
Course, the "daddies" are long gone.
[quote]He was robbed and beaten to death with a flashlight.
What an evil thing to do to an innocent war veteran. Those nasty thugs will soon find out that karma is a bitch.
Racists have taken over this thread. This is why I hate whites. I have tried to be tolerant but I am fed up with this bullshit. Go hump yourselves. I thought white gays were liberal and on our side. Guess not.
r87, blacks hate whites
What are you going to do, r87? Pick up a flashlight and whip an 80 year old veteran?
Sounds like you are a little racist yourself, R87.
Can't stand the plain truth, r87?
Go fuck yourself!!
Y mamá nos dijo que tuvieramos cuidado con los negros gringos.
We came here on spite of Black Americans, mi amor - nobody wants to immigrate to a shithole like Haiti. Your dancin' might impress the white boys, but we're not impressed.
Boat people went from nothing to success in 1 generation. Trillions spent on blacks since the Great Society, and all you have are baby mamas, 30 year old grandmas, gangbangers, and a guy with a Kenyan deadbeat dad, white mama, Indonesian stepdad, pretending he's a homeboy.
No one gives a fuck if blacks hate whites.
Whites just want to be able to go out of the house without being pistol-whipped/robbed/raped/shot by a black teen who is bored or hungry or worn out from SAT prep. Whether or not you "like" us is the least of our worries, trust me.
R88 What do you expect? You keep all the good jobs for yourselves. You promote only your own kind. You won't help poor folks who are not the same color as you. We need help too you know. Katrina was a travesty. You can't deny what whites did to us down here. We screamed for help for days and no one came. We drowned, we washed away, we lost our homes and lived in filth for days and you people sat in your middle class neighborhood and watched Full House on the TV while we were dying.
Enough guys, lets not get personal!
Where's my violin, R94?
Wrong, R94. I was part of a massive rescue team dispatched from Houston. We were on the ground in New Orleans in a matter of hours. We were a team of hundreds of men. We were just one large team of many. That you languished without help for days or weeks is part of THE GREAT LIE you are being fed.
We could not rescue all of the people at once. The area was flooded. We patrolled in boats and searched for people. It took time. I know it must have seemed like help wasn't coming at times, but it was. We busted our asses for ALL of the victims who needed help, regardless of color.
Don't believe everything that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton shit out of their mouths. They perpetuate many, many lies to help line their pockets with cash. Don't be mislead.
A good job requires at least a high school education. I would say at least 50% of blacks think doing well in school is uncool/acting white.
They would rather pose on facebook with guns and a stack of money.
[quote]you people sat in your middle class neighborhood and watched Full House on the TV while we were dying
Really? For some reason the term "ingrate" comes to mind. Do you really not remember the many, many millions of hard-earned dollars that were donated to Katrina's victims from those "middle class neighborhoods" you now so bithely dismiss? Whites did nothing "to" you; a storm did. On the other hand, many whites did a great deal "for" you following Katrina. But that doesn't fit in with the "white-devil" fable you're spinning, does it R94?
All this fuss over a speech MLK gave fifty years ago.
The man was a womanizing plagiarist, who was about to be named by a Los Angeles dentist as a correspondent in a divorce suit, the same week that he was assassinated.
And Whites don't hate blacks, R88? What about the Disco Sucks rally at Comiskey Park in the seventies? That was a slap in our faces. You killed disco because it threatened your redneck rock and roll Peter Frampton, Ted Nugent good ole Dukes Of Hazzard Boys party! A bunch of trailer park good ole boys burning crosses and disco CDs on the field. Read a book some time. That was a hate crime and all those boys should have been imprisoned. You want justice, start there.
A white person gets killed, the world stops. Meanwhile, blacks, Mexicans, Arabs, Latinos and other minorities get killed everyday.
If white people don't think there day is coming for all the harm they have done worldwide, then they are in for a rude awakening.
I feel bad for white people, especially white women. They don't deserve what is coming.
R94 Where the fuck were you when Andrew shredded Homestead in 92?
Where was Black "We Are The World" America?
Bitch, you spewed out -exactly- the crap that we are sick of hearing. We aren't the problem, hun. You and your culture's bottomless arrogance, "what have you done for me lately" insolence
R101, LOL! I was at the game that night at Comiskey. There were no crosses burned and there were definitely no disco CDs burned that night. Compact discs did not hit the U.S. Market until the Spring of 1983, four years after that event.
The Disco Sucks Rally was not racist, nor was it homophobic. People, including me (a gay man), were fed up with disco being forced down our throats in every area of our lives. It was everywhere and it got to a point where we were burned out on it. It was not racism or homophobia. YOU read a book!
Forget disco, R101... you got revenge, in any event... decades of (c)rap have made us deaf!
This thread is beyond sickening and is giving me the burrito squirts. I hope it is deleted soon.
@r104, so you are a racist gay dude? Geez.

You can say the same thing about hip-hop. Personally, I'm tired of hearing that shit.
R101 Bitch, Ethel Merman putting out a disco record killed disco.Nile Rogers got his panties on a wad on "I Love The Seventies" about that ball park crap, and your old white ass calls that a hate crime? STFU
@R104 sounds like an old racist. Lol
R107 I would not call myself a racist. I am not white. I am of Venezuelan descent. I am Latino.
R111 Coño, hermano, mi sangre, como aguantas tantas locas gringas?!? Verga, que emocion caer con un paisano
R104 has the aids cuz the fucker's old. His generation invented aids and he got it by takin redneck pinga up his pooper hole.
Fucker's old and almost dead from the aids. LOL. They called him Crisco Disco back in the day. LOL. Makes me ashamed to be gay. At least I never had light meat. LOL.
R113. Puts the "mofo" in mofongo
The skies are blue and sunny...
My bowels are loose and runny.
Innocent victims are being murdered for no reason in this country, while many are more upset over Ben Affleck being named the new Batman.
I get the idea that most of the Good Ole Boys on here are posting from below the Mason-Dixon Line. Nuke the South. Nothing but shit down that way.
Momma's mussy all warm and hot with all this testosterone in here.
old people are stupid
R118. ssssssss, mamacita...
There must of been a Def Leppard or Willie Nelson concert down at the V.F.W. It looks like all the good ole boys already flew out of here. Maybe Full House was on the TV. LOL.
Golly, you're sure hung up on Full House, you dumb fuck.
Nuke the violent urban shitholes and the world would be a more perfect place.
Fuck! I just took a huge dump and there's no toilet paper. What tha fuck?
[quote]It is obvious by now that America has a very serious black problem
You think that's funny, and it's not. the only black problem in America has consists of the black people who are, actually, problems.
That may seem super obvious, but apparently everyone misses this point. That's the entire crux of racism. It's not that you think Black Person "A" is horrible for killing someone. That makes sense. It's that every black person has to answer for the actions of Black Person "A". It's complete bullshit.
Surely, blacks have their horribly large share of criminals and thugs. But, without any question, non-blacks BELIEVE that based on that fact, it is okay to make assumptions about all black people, to treat all black people as Black Person "A" "just in case."
It's all a joke to you, because there are no individual black people. The ever so tired "Don't let him be ***". So, the criminal is black, big fucking deal. That individual is black and deserves all of the scorn, backlash and legal punishment he gets. But, you believe, even if you'll never admit it, that it justifies your actions towards all black people - your suspicion, your prejudices, your dismissal. Because, SURELY we're all connected - if one black person acts in a certain way, it MUST mean we all will.
Did you ever stop to consider that for law-abiding, every day, black people, it's incredibly unfair and demeaning. Of course, you don't. There are no law-abiding, normal black people. There can't be. That wouldn't fit with the entire structure you've built in your head that there is a group completely inferior to yourself.
And, you have the nerve to go on and on and on about homophobia in the black community, like it's so crazy and incapable of comprehension, not ever acknowledging that such homophobia comes from the exact same place as racism in the gay community.
Two historically shit upon communities told by mainstream society that they are inferior, that they are shit. Both wanting beyond desperately to be better than someone - and the easiest road is via taking advantage of the little privilege that you have - for the mainstream black community that would be hetero privilege. For the mainstream gay community that would be white privilege.
Putting all black people into a collective inferior whole (no matter if many, many black people don't ever do anything wrong) is the gay community's way to feel superior to someone, to something. "we may be gay, but at least we're not black. We're not THAT low on the food chain." Of course, blacks are saying the exact same thing. 'we may be black, but at least we're not faggots. We're not THAT low on the food chain."
I don't care now many fucking threads are posted about black people doing horrible things. The blame for those things fall on those black people, no one else. But, you'll never understand that, or more likely, gleefully, proudly ignore it. Yet, you hate people making generalizations about gay people based on the actions of some fag who molests children or some antiquated stereo types of gay people, or anything else involving an INDIVIDUAL gay person who acts illegally, immorally or otherwise negatively. You dutifully protest "but we're not all like that", yet you insist that other groups truly are "all like that".
Disgusting, insecure hypocrites who flat out refuse to keep their disgust, anger, rejection of horrible behavior focused on the person who actually committed that behavior. Yet, you freak out when people have negative prejudices, assumptions, stereotypes in regards to gay people.
Maybe, R126, when we hear fewer excuses made for the wanton violence of criminals like these, when Al Sharpton, and mouth-pieces like him, give a God-damn about the sufferings and deaths of the victims, when the perpetrators aren't re-cast as the victims and the real victims trashed at every possible opportunity, we'll hear less "all like that".
@124, then where would the white guys get their di ck from? It would be a shame for them to not have to pay for good black or Latino sex. Talking about tragic.
And, R127 immediately proves my point. All black people deserve to be cast together because of "Al Sharpton and mouth pieces like him." Any excuse not to view black people as individuals.
You can't contain your anger and disgust to the criminals and the actual "mouth pieces" you speak of? That would make sense. But, you can't. Or more likely, you won't.
And, you gleefully say "Maybe when we hear ***" knowing damn well there will always be Sharpton-like mouth pieces to excuse criminals. So, apparently all law abiding, good black people have to wait until the black community reaches some state of perfection, where we have no criminals and no blowhards like Sharpton before we can have any respect, or simply not be seen as inferior, awful people. Thanks. Of course, you won't let yourself believe that there are actually good, decent black people.
How would you like to be judged constantly based on the absolute worst actions of your your community, based on the behavior of people you don't even know? You wouldn't, but to maintain some fleeting privilege, you'll willfully do it to other groups.
Not so Greatest Generation now, are ya, Gramps?
Al Sharpton doesn't speak for the entire black community R126.
Does Dan Savage represent the entire gay community when he speaks on political matters then?
Someone should remind Al Sharpton of that.
Revenge for Trayvon.
"How would you like to be judged constantly based on the absolute worst actions of your your community, based on the behavior of people you don't even know?"
But that is EXACTLY what it is like to be a Gay (white, black, or any color in between).
Race relations are really bad right now
R129 makes a good point. People are upset about the Trayvon cases, and now the two cases of these gang thugs who murdered innocent people, when one tweeted racial slurs. It's possible to hate the criminal and not blame a whole race. Most serial and mass killers happen to be white, and it doesn't offend me when people hate on those criminals. I hate along with them. So why the sensitivity in these gang cases?
I know many really groovy older black guys.
It's the younger generation that is so screwed up--WTF!
And it's across all races--teenage white boys are scary--haven't you heard about all of the shootings? Have we all forgotten Columbine and the rest?
RIP good man, and thank you for serving our country. You will not be forgotten.
Now, something is happening with our young people across the board. Is it the food? Drugs? Television? Shitty music?
Did Chernobyl fuck up people's brains? Or Santa Susanna, or country's own nuclear meltdown?
Half of the population is on psychiatric medications--why??
And why was there a sudden increase in serial killers in the seventies?
Obsessing on race will not allow us to find out what is really going on.
RIP good man.
Also people, remember--violence is part of heterosexual culture.
Stay gay , my friends, gay, beautiful, artistic, sexy and above-it-all.
Ewwww, this site has truly been taken over by old, white gay-KKers. I'm out.
Great posts R137 and R138.
Thank you R140!
"A white person gets killed, the world stops. Meanwhile, blacks, Mexicans, Arabs, Latinos and other minorities get killed everyday.

I feel bad for white people, especially white women. They don't deserve what is coming."
Didn't the demise fo Trayvon Martin stop the world? Sure seemed like to me.
You seems to be making threats against white people, particularly women. You seem to be implying that they are going to raped and tortured and murdered. You are a SICK motherfucker and you need to be locked up somewhere. I'm sure you will be, in time.
"Maybe whites are provoking us. Ever think of that? Maybe that old man talked smack to those kids. He didn't deserve to die but maybe he started shit."
Are you fucking kidding?
Let's assume for a second that the 88 year old man did talk "smack" to the oafish young louts. Is that justification for killing him? Of course not. The two despicable, cowardly little scumbags killed a defenseless old man because they're sociopaths.
They need to be thrown in jail and locked up forever. They are ANIMALS.
Is Rush Limbaugh posting on the Datalounge now?
I'm against the death penalty but in this case I'd make an exception.
He was 88, he couldn't get hard anymore. How much longer could he live?
r145 nah, nah, nah........ Let the poor little boys get into prison. I can only imagine the wonderful "reception" they'll get? They beat an old man to death for kicks? That's gonna' go down real well with so many of their fellow convicts, who'll see their fathers or grandfathers in that dead WWII veteran. Have fun, boys, and open wide.
Sick of this shit, death penalty for the teens, please.
Michael Dewayne Jones is half white (half black.) His mother is a crack whore and his father was an unknown white john.
When will black people take responsibility for raising sociopaths? And stop taking welfare money for them, eh?

As soon as you take responsibility for your KKK membership.

He should've gone into advertising.
So sad to see how such crimes make the disadvantaged and discriminated in society turn on each other, whether they be attributed to racism, sexism, homophobia, feminism, immigration, liberalism, welfare, ageism, misogny, social/economic background etc - or any other prejudice you care to name.
Such tribalism diminishes us all and yet these stories seem to garner more media attention / online commentary than positive campaigns and social interactions which resist stereotyping.
I agree with the poster above who stressed that individual criminals do not represent their entire race / gender / age / social class. People are people - I.E. women, immigrants, homosexuals, the poor, blacks, whites, the elderly, hispanics, teenagers - yet it seems only certain groups are singled out for reprobation whether they are victims or perpetrators.
Stop demonising and start listening. You might find you have more commonalities than differences.
Sick posters like R151 is why Huffington Post is doing away with anonymous posters. If the disgusting pigs like R151 could be identified and outed to their family, their neighbor and their jobs maybe they'd learn to keep their filth to themselves.
r155, MANY people are planning to boycott for Huffington posts assault on free speech. Fuck you!! Truth hurts!!
[quote]MANY people are planning to boycott for Huffington posts assault on free speech. Fuck you!! Truth hurts!!
Sweetie, this should have been taught to you in civics or government class -- your right to free speech has nothing to do with commenting policies on any website, liberal, conservative, anarchist, fascist, racist or anything else.
The Huffington Post, the MIchfest forums, the Stormfront message board, iVillage, The New York Times... all of them have the right to take comments, not take comments, take comments down, set policies, etc.
And if you have a web presence (site, blog, whatever) that you own or that you control, you can exercise the same right.
It has nothing to do with "free speech." Nothing.
It has to do with that Greek Stasinopolous Beard-Of-Huffington cunt, who spreads easier than warm butter on hot toast, bamboozling people into thinking her screeching tirades were worth hearing, her opinion worth noticing. Stupido Americanos
Hey R151, I think you got lost. Here's a link to lead you back to your people!
It's the soap opera people. They google the name of their favorite soap and datalounge threads show up. We never used to have the number of threads like "I have no friends" "I'm so lonely" "I'm on 18 psych meds" as we have now. Soap people are OCDers and shut ins. When soap threads were banned, this was a better place.
[quote]Sick posters like [[R151]] is why Huffington Post is doing away with anonymous posters.
They never allowed anonymous posting, dumbass.

Uh, no honey. Child molesters are the only ones who get it hard in prison. These animals won't have any trouble in regards to this crime in there.
[quote] Let the poor little boys get into prison.....
Prison? For what? It could have been self-defense.
I'm a white person, and I've been held up at gunpoint in my city twice, both by young black men. The second time the gun was to my head.
I've never held a gun in my life, and certainly never to a black person's head.
When will black people start taking responsibility for their own actions and stop blaming whites?
r164, when hell freezes
Stop giving out excuses for black crimes. Why do DL'ers do this? Why?
Black people are fine, but the underclass is horrific. They should stop having children, stop doing drugs/any substances/ & get their shit together, but the black underclass is holding a whole lot of people back.
And it's violent, more violent than any other underclass in this country. Towards each other, towards others.
I love the dumbfucks who can't distinguish between problems of class and (non-existent) "problems" of race.
R167 Smell yoi, Karl Marx!
r167 white poor areas are not the same way. Latino poor areas are not the same way either. Neither has the crime or violence that black poor areas have.
I honestly believe that there has been no hoopla over this very obvious crime of young black men against an old feeble white war hero is very simple: the powers that be didn't want to taint the 50th anniversary of M. Luther King Jr's celebration.
You have a black president who can't move forward because of the old white guard in the House and Senate, you have a large number of hypocrite blacks who still think Travon Martin was an innocent youth wrongly killed by a "white" Latino--still can't understand that one. And finally you have a large number of castrated whites who fear retaliation if they say anything remotely considered "white supremist" even though they are merely expressing their belief that these young out-of-control black teens are ruining your country.
How many hainous, violent crimes yearly are caused by white teens or young white 20 something adults? The numbers are insignificant when compared to blacks.
Black crime in America is out of control, and it needs to be addressed PRONTO.
How did this thread get derailed, and why are so many unsympathetic towards this 88yo man?
I don't think he made any remarks to the thugs who killed him. I feel so sorry for the man. he was old and frail and just minding his own business. I am so sorry he left this world in a violent way.
Nuff said. .. Just incinerate the little motherfuckers.
Yes! R171. I agree! I've shed tears for this poor man, and I never even knew him. And I hope these little turds die with terror in their eyes and knives in their guts!!!
I am biracial, and will admit that poor black areas are more dangerous than poor white areas overall. There are poor Mexican areas that are just as bad or worse than the poor black areas though. The Mexican gangs are vicious.
Miley Cyrus is a fucking cunt. She should be ashamed for her display at the VMAs. I'm no prude but I think that was all desperation on her part to stir up controversy to extend her expiring 15 minutes of fame. I hope the bitch falls flat on her ignorant hillbilly ass and disappears into obscurity with her bible-thumpin' washed-up daddy!

Cram it, R177.
Would you like a list of all the assholes that "BLACK CULTURE" should be ashamed of?
Jesus Christ was not black, r177. Sorry to disappoint you.
And you've also listed about 3 druggies and 3 closet cases on your black list. And that's when you've already been highly biased in your selections.
r176, thank goodness you showed up. Someone had to be the voice of reason on this thread.
Me thinks all you people need help. Racism and reverse racism are for Rethuglican, uneducated straights. I thought we were above all that. I see we, as gays, still have a lot further to go than I thought.
I am white but I love all my gay brothers and sisters, no matter what color their skin is. I am thankful for our differences and I think our differences make us more interesting and appealing. Maybe someday we will no longer hate and blame.
R181 Stuff it!
R177 written by a white American, product of a US public school. That's not Black culture, that's Soul Train in the 70s.
The Black Madonna is Polish, and Jesus of Nazareth wasn't Ethiopian. Drop the ganja now.
Mavis Bacon? Not a real person
Pushkin and the Count of Monte Cristo, you can have.

Michael Jackson: Pedo ( allegedly ) drug addict
Maya Angelou: Ex hooker
Jackson 5 : Do you need to ask? Users
Whitney Houston: Druggie
Great examples of black culture
R42 sounds do stupid. Brooklyn has nothing but carribian people and the crimes reported there have don't involve native born African Americans.
I don't think you really want to claim Will Smith and Janet Jackson.
One of the thugs is now claiming that they were buying crack from the old man . . . really?
[quote]One of the thugs is now claiming that they were buying crack from the old man . . . really?
Well, that's what the thug claimed. Even his defense lawyer isn't buying it, though.
Why is it when Trayvon was killed, it was never about race. Now this white man is killed and blacks did it, oh the WHOLE fucking Black community has to pay for it. Statistics are being thrown out there about us being the worst demographics on Earth etc., but oh, a white man or a latino man kills a black kid, he is just one individual and the kid was a gangsta thug anyway...
I'm so sick of this shit
But Trayvon Martin WAS a gangsta thug, Blanche! HE WAS!
It's open season on YT
America the beautiful!
Damn, do 90% of these killers have to be Black?
r193 it is a serious social/cultural crisis within US society and nobody is really doing anything meaningful to address it.
yeah due to political correctness r194
What about those black teens who killed the white Australian jogging baseball player supposedly because they were bored and picked him as a target?
You all digress. Back on topic: String up the little motherfuckers!!
[quote]Why is it when Trayvon was killed, it was never about race. Now this white man is killed and blacks did it, oh the WHOLE fucking Black community has to pay for it.
You can't see a HUGE difference between the Trayvon Martin case and this one? Wow...
r162 The Aryan Brotherhood, among others, is laughing at your statement.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
