Teens Set Kid On Fire For Being a "White Boy"
« on: April 22, 2012, 12:03:04 am »
In a jarring example that goes to show us racism is, in fact, colorblind, we get this lovely bit of news:

http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-03-04/news/31122324_1_white-boy-fire-tv-station

Quote
A 13-year-old boy who police say was doused with gasoline and lit on fire last week while walking home from school is recovering from first-degree burns to his face and head.

The boy was just two blocks from his home in Kansas City Tuesday when two teenagers began to follow him and then attacked him, his mother, Melissa Coon, said.

Police have described the suspects as black 16-year-olds, while the victim is white.

"We were told it's a hate crime," Coon told KTLA.

"They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open," Coon told KMBC. "(One of them) poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, 'This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.'"

...

"It was pretty bad stuff," Detective Stacey Taylor told the TV station, adding that police are concerned the boy may have suffered damage to his eyes and lungs.

Coon said her son put out the fire with his shirt and called 911 himself. He was rushed to the hospital and was treated for his injuries.

...

"My 5-year-old came in and asked me, 'Mom, am I going to get set on fire today?'" Coon said. "I was in tears."

I am, frankly, at a loss for words.

I never thought at any point in my life I'd ever say this, but I honestly would be pleased if the KKK lynched these two wastes of carbon.

It sounds familiar to what some of the militants do in Africa.  With or without the tire.

All I can say is, I hope justice is meted out somehow.

Racism is indeed color blind.

How disgusting.

I'm not going that far. Too close to something a Freeper would say. But the people who did this are horrific.

You know how I've said that racism is one of the big things that pisses me off?

Guess what, I just learned that it does, indeed, apply if it's a minority performing a hate crime against a majority.

FUCKING

RAGE!

...

Also, it it bad that I found that the boy's last name was a very strange coincidence?

No, I was going to say something about it too.
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

I kinda thought about it, but decided against it since the wound is quite raw at this point.

Which is why I didn't say anything either.
