Pretty sure someone posted about this in another thread but I wanted to bring it here. A middle aged white man, driving through a Detroit neighborhood, struck a black youth by accident. The youth was not seriously injured, the white guy got out to help him...and was nearly beaten to death by a mob.

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140410/METRO01/304100067/Juvenile-charged-hate-crime-mob-beating-Clinton-Twp-motorist

So far one teenager, out of a large number of people that beat him, has been charged by the county prosecutor with "ethnic intimidation." He, and several other people, have been charged with a couple of different assault charges. The beaten man is still in a coma and has suffered some pretty drastic brain trauma.

My only musing on this would be how far has local civilization broken down for folks to behave like this?

Surprised nobody commented on the Mozilla CEO being forced to resign for making a political donation five years ago.

Dood was on the wrong side of history and has paid the price. Let it be a warning to other wrong minded people.

I remember a story about something similar a year or so ago.

How does one ensure they are on the right side of history?

That was just shit you say to get elected. Everyone knew he was right minded the entire time and couldn't let that cat out of the bag until his second term.

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO of Mozilla because of his political views.

Dividing corporate America into the red and blue camps is long past due. Mozilla is not a government actor, so no rights have been violated. I, too, am a private actor, so I've asked for Firefox's resignation from my Desktop. The flaming logo was off-putting anyway.

I think ABQ caught the country's attention over WW a little too much and now they're under the magnifying glass. I blame some of this on Hank, as even though he was DEA, he was running a bit fast and loose.

Hmmmm, Eric Holder is a giant cunt and cops are flaming assholes, I'm not sure whose side I should come down on here.

I think CNN is finally starting to report crimes in a way not designed to fan racial tension. What makes me say this is I just saw the first report on CNN about the white man nearly beaten to death by a mob of black people in Detroit.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/12/us/michigan-driver-attack/index.html?hpt=hp_t2

CNN was very responsible as they only mentioned the race of the perpetrators and victim once, nor did they do things like write a sensational headline concerning hate crimes (Daughter of severely beaten Detroit driver says he's breathing on his own (never mind the driver is not from Detroit)), etc. This was very, very race neutral reporting by CNN.

"He is off the ventilator and is able to breathe on his own," Mandi Marie Utash posted Friday to a GoFundMe.com page she and her brother set up for their father, who they say does not have health insurance.

I wonder if they'll make him pay the $90 fee.

Hmmm, yes, they must have suddenly seen the light. And Obama didn't even identify who looked like his theoretical son here. Truly a new day of race blindness is dawning.
