I don't know how to post a link. Go to www.adn.com and the story title is "Victim's race seems to be sole reason for attack" If anyone know's how to post the link, I'd appreciate it.
This story made me really sad, and what makes me sadder is that it sounds like these 2 jerks will get off with just a slap on the wrist.
Does this sort of rascism happen in your community? Do you have any thoughts on the matter? Will people ever quite hurting those that are defenseless?

omg....So does child abuse and spousal abuse, and pedophiles and thieves. there will ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS be stupid, awful, terrible people out there that do stupid, awful, terrible things. The world is not, nor will it EVER be some kind of utopia. Jesus. But is Racism as vad as it once was.....let me think...when was the last time you came across a segregated bus, water fountain, school ect? When was the last time you watched a TV show with ZERO minorities and what was the last company you saw that ZERO minorities working there or in management. Heck ,look at Washington...there is a dang BLACK MAN in the WH. So is racism still around.....yes, honey it ALWAYS wil be. Is it as bad as it once was..NO.

Yes I see it happen a lot! I get a lot of racist comments about my hubby and I being married. Also since we have a child together it got worse with the rude stares and comments no matter where we go we get at least 2 of them.
The other thing I can not stand is racist stereotypes
Like all African Americans like fried chicken, watermelon, and grape soda. Well I don't like any of that stuff!
Same thing with Whites, Hispanics, Asians, and so on and so on!
People need to stop assuming and judging!

tnmomofive, I don't think you read the article. It's not whites attacking blacks, or vice versa. It's a couple of punk white people attacking Ak Natives in Anch. Ak. and posting the attack on youtube to brag about it. I don't see how having a "black" man in the white house is supposed to nullify the attacks?
Great strides? I think a great stride would be for these punks to be charged with a hate crime instead of being let out on bail for only $50-$100 dollars.
