Racial Tensions Rise as White Teens Escape Murder Conviction
It’s been ten days since the all white jury acquitted two white teenagers of the most serious charge in the beating death of Luís Ramírez, a Mexican immigrant. Racial tensions have increased and this New York Times article takes a look. I pulled one quote from the article that just shows the stupidity, ignorance, or just plain hate of some people:
“When people get in fights, they say whatever comes to mind, but I don’t think that makes it a hate crime,” said Daniel Adacavage, who is white and the manager of the Chuplis Apartments, not far from where the beating took place.
Okay Daniel Adacavage – you’re a loser and I’m sure you would feel the same way if you were beat up and called racial slurs at the same time. Definitely would not be a hate crime, right?
