Cha Ching!

Hmm.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

And jack was posting on FB last night about how this is Trump's fault because he unleashed the bigots.

Funny - I don't recall the outrage and blaming Obama when black urban youth were playing the knockout game, always on non-black people. My point being not whataboutism, but about interpreting things that have been happening for many years as Trump's fault. It is not what is happening, it's how it is presented.

As a side note...As a group, blacks are very concerned about illegal immigration. I suspect in SoCal those emotions can run pretty high.

I was looking for the race of the attackers. My thinking was had it been white that would ave been included, even featured.

Seriously? You don't remember people who disliked Obama blaming pretty much everything on him for 8 long years?

There is no doubt whatsoever about that.

Emotional thinkers might be the quickest to care, based on some anecdotal stimuli, but they're also the quickest to hate, based on anecdotal stimuli.

True - but their hate runs clean to their bones and their care lasts only long enough for the others to see it.

Also in WaPo right now, "Woman beats a 91-year-old Mexican man with a brick, tells him to ‘go back to your country,'" which is a story based on the testimony of one witness who presented video of the old man after whatever had happened to bloody his face.

The witness has told the Post that the man "accidentally bumped into a young girl while walking on the sidewalk," and that the mother pushed the man down and "repeatedly bash[ed] him in the face with a concrete brick while yelling, 'Go back to your country.'" There is no description of this woman, but, we are told, by this one witness, that after what the woman did, "A group of young men bounded down the street, accusing Rodriguez of trying to snatch the young girl. They kicked Rodriguez, who was already crumpled on the ground, and stomped on his head."

Police were called, there's an ongoing investigation, but no one was caught, and there is no description of the woman or the group of men. I hope I'm not being cynical to assume that since the attackers are not described as white, that they were black. The Post talked to the eyewitness and presents the attack as racist, with this paragraph tossed in:
Quote:
 
[The] attack comes after the Department of Justice released its recent hate crime statistics, reported by KCRA. The 2017 California report, which was the first published since President Trump took office, evinced an uptick of more than 17 percent, with anti-Hispanic and anti-Latino crimes soaring over 50 percent last year, according to the Saramento Bee.

At the base of the article are links to 3 recent articles: "A man confronted a teenage neighbor over early morning fireworks — then shot him to death, police say," "#IDAdam, the white man who called police on a woman at their neighborhood pool, loses his job," "A black lawmaker was canvassing door to door in her district. A constituent called 911." All of those stories present black individuals who seem to have been treated as though they were intruders in their own neighborhood.

I look at the comments on the article about the concrete brick attack, beginning with the oldest. The third one begins:
Quote:
 
The Daily Mail has a screen cap of the woman that did this..
.
The link goes to a https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/09/14/4E0F7DBF00000578-5933843-image-m-13_1531143155841.jpg of a black woman. And here's the whole story in The Daily Mail.

The attack is terrible, but The Washington Post also deserves condemnation for deceptively jamming this story into its racial template and scamming its readers. At least it leaves the comments on, allowing the blatant gap in the story to be instantly filled.

Oh yeah, let's keep on aggrondizing each and every attack of this kind, the more the better, the more chatter, the more outrage, so that each attack spawns five more just like it. Let's forget that race-against-other-race attacks have happened for generations.

Gotta fill those webpages somehow! Like the racetrack tout famously said, "There's always fresh".

The post article now says this
Quote:
 
Borjas, a 35-year-old Los Angeles resident, watched the child’s mother — a black woman — push the elderly man to the ground and repeatedly bash him in the face with a concrete brick while yelling, “Go back to your country.”


But the comments make it clear that originally the race was unknown.
