    Do civil rights leaders and the media ignore interracial crimes against whites?

    "In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

    "What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man."
    FrontPage Magazine - The Truth of Interracial Rape in the United States

    "According to the 2004 FBI National Crime Victimization Survey, in most instances of interracial crimes, the victim is white and the perpetrator is black. In the case of interracial murder for 2004, where the race of victim and perpetrator is known, more than twice as many whites were murdered by a black than cases of a white murdering a black. The failure of civil rights leaders, people like Jackson and Sharpton, as well as politicians to vocally condemn black-on-white crime -- and the relative silence of the news media in reporting it -- is not simply a matter of double standards. It's dangerous, for it contributes to a pile of racial kindling awaiting a racial arsonist to set it ablaze."
    Capitalism Magazine - Hiding Black Interracial Crimes

    A black stripper accused white members of the Duke Lacrosse team of raping her in 2006. The case received a huge amount of publicity. The accused were later cleared of the charges. Yet the media and civil rights leaders seem to pay a lot less attention to cases in which the victims are white and the perpetrators are black. They seem to be a lot more comfortable portraying blacks as being the victims of whites than the reverse.

    Oh absolutely.

    When it comes to a group of white college students stomping on a black dude, the media is all over it. But when a white person is heinously assaulted by someone of color or minority status the media is eerily silent, treating it like absolutely no crime was committed.

    It's a vicious double standard. If white people can be charged with hate crimes and racism, black people should be held to the same standard. Giving them a free pass just because they had hard times in the past isn't fair to the good of the country. It sends the wrong message to everybody.

    Afterall it was you who said the 14th Amendment requires laws to be applied in an even manner, or something like that. The laws against violence based on race are being applied in an uneven manner.

    The 14th Amendment doesn't restrict what the media can say. It only restricts what the government can do. While living in Hawaii, I saw a lot of racism. Some people had the attitude that it was okay to mistreat white people because white people overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy and forced Hawaii to become part of the United States a long time ago.

    Looking at the illegal immigration issue, there is a history there too. Before the Mexican War (1846-1848) present day Arizona, Utah, Colorado, California, and New Mexico were Mexican territory. US President Ulysses S. Grant said that the Mexican War was "one of the most unjust ever waged by a stronger against a weaker nation. It was an instance of a republic following the bad example of European monarchies, in not considering justice in their desire to acquire additional territory."
    So a lot of these Mexican immigrants are entering territory that the United States forcibly took from Mexico.

    No argument - - and they can be. But not every crime that where the perp and the victim are of different races is it a hate crime. You have to prove the victim/crime was chosen fbecause of his or her race. Its fairly hard to prove. Just because someone pulls the race card with the media doesn't mean the law sees it that way.

    "The alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl by at least 18 boys and young men has sparked shame and outrage in a tiny Texas town, but it has also stirred racial tensions that threaten to split the East Texas hamlet.

    "All of the defendants arrested are African-American and the girl is Hispanic....

    "Houston community activist Quanell X will host a town hall meeting this evening called 'What's the real truth behind the rape allegations?'

    " 'Every adult male that had sex with this child should go to prison, I don't care what the color is. But I do not believe black males are the only ones that had contact with this young child,' said Quanell X, the leader of Houston's New Black Panther Party. 'It appears to me there's only been the selective prosecution of one community, which is African American.'....

    "The village has a history of racial violence. In 1988, an African American man was arrested in Cleveland for allegedly stealing a fountain pen. The man, 30-year-old Kenneth Simpson, was allegedly beaten to death by white police officers while in prison. The officers were acquitted of murder charges and returned to work....

    "Cleveland police began investigating the rape in December of last year after cell phone video showing the alleged sex attack started circulating among students at Cleveland schools, according to court documents. The video shows the girl engaged in sexual acts with several men....

    "Myers said the girl was a happy and talkative girl, but something abruptly changed last October....

    "When Myers asked the girl what was bothering her, she said, 'It's just something I can't tell you,' Myers said....

    " 'It's becoming a black and white issue because it happened over in the quarters. It's segregating our community again,' Myers said. 'The reaction is anger, devastation.' "
    Texas Gang Rape of 11-Year-Old Girl; Charges Against 18 Men Spark Racial Tensions - ABC News

    An oddly written article? 18 African American men are arrested for allegedly gang raping an 11 year old girl after a cell phone video of an attack circulates among students. Someone from the Black Panthers is quoted as saying that he believes African Americans are being unfairly targeted and that black men were not the only ones that raped this girl. He is hosting a town hall meeting about his beliefs. So does he have actual evidence that others were involved and has he tried going to the police with this evidence? Why doesn't the article say anything about this? The author also presents a case in which white police officers were accused of beating a black man to death as an example of the town's history of racial violence although the officers were acquitted.

    Agreed. The race card is used so often that its meaning is being watered down.

    While there were allegations that rapists of other races were involved, where is the evidence? If the evidence exists, prosecute them! Rapists should not be allowed to escape the long arm of the law regardless of their race or any other factor.

    The article quotes someone who says that the crime is becoming a "becoming a black and white issue". However, the victim was Hispanic which in that part of the US probably means of Mexican origin. So why not a black and hispanic issue?

    Sounds like some were blaming the victim at the town hall meeting and no mention of any actual evidence being presented that men of other races were involved in the attack-

    "A meeting Thursday night that was billed as a way to discuss concerns some have about the investigation into a series of alleged sexual assaults on an 11-year-old girl turned into a forum that many used to blame the girl police contend is the victim of heinous attacks."

    " 'She lives in another community,' Quanell X told the gathering. 'You mean to tell me the only men that had sex with that girl were black men, locked up in that jail?' "
