This one is fairly typical, in its content and tone, which mocks (and thoroughly misunderstands) the notion of "hate crimes":
1. all this for a dominoes pizza? When will the black community learn to value and respect others. Hopefully, the delivery man recovers, but what if this man had to go through life blind for a 10 dollar pizza.That comment provoked this edifying and thoughtful dialogue (with some of the comments in the string omitted):
2. why is this not considered a hate crime? 2 black males conspired to attack a delivery driver then referenced his race as he fled. If the shoe were on the other foot, there would be marches in the streets.
3. why was this guy out on the streets to begin with?
"When will the black community learn to value and respect others. "
@thelostcause the "black community" didn't make the big fat blimp and his side kick commit this henious crime and i am sure the "black community" is just as appalled as you are...and if you want to have a march go right ahead
This is typical of today's society.....white man works - black man takesThere is also the NOLA.com classic comments about "where are the reverends," mocking the African American religious communities activism on racial justice issues and denigrating African American civic leaders as "poverty pimps". ("Naah...the poverty pimps reverends Jesse Jackoff & Al Sharptongue, the dynamic duo of potstirring troublemakers.")
At least one user wants to get past the racial implications of the story and get back to NOLA.com's daily business of abusing people charged with crimes:
This will cause a lot of racial comments. Lets try not to attack each other, and just focus on the task at hand, bashing this f'ing idiot low life scum, he probably would have shot somebody for some Papa Johns. However, I do think you need to classify this as a hate crime, what if it were the other way around?While this guy understands that slavery was bad, he is basically sick of poor black people:
This waste of cells has been living off of all of those of us who work his entire life i am sure. If welfare recipients are twice as heavy as me we must be giving them more than they need. I have had it with these types of leeches. Look- slavery was an ABSOLUTE travesty. Previous generations of black people fought wars, marched in the streets and risked their lives to be free and to work toward true equality. While I realize that there are many great black citizens in nola who contribute greatly to our society and culture there are a whole lot of heartless sick slaves running around free in this city. Get off your azz and go get a good job like your grandfather could not. We have all these people "just chillin" all day and night waiting for our taxes to pay rent and put food on the table. Many rob, kill and sell dope for whatever we do not give to them for free. There are white people who are government slaves too, but i am talking nola. This fat pos doesn't like white people? Don't forget that white people created this free society that you enjoy fat boy. You like white people's tax money don't you porgie? Slavery was awful no doubt. But boy would I hate to live in Africa, where anarchy and oppression are the norm. The black community has good reason to be in shambles. But excuses aside- it is time for real leaders to step up and lead. Black children need real role models. Instead they have lil wayne the genocidal maniac telling them to hustle and kill and obama the welfare enabler trying to keep them unemployed and broke. God help black America.Throw in an ad hominen attack on the Honorable Laurie White, a fine judge who was previously a respected criminal defense attorney:
Ladies and Gentlemen,Maybe its time for NOLA.com to shut down the lively civic discourse on this particular story?
This is what happens when you elect a scumbag defense attorney to the office of Criminal Court Judge. Laurie White is nothing but a scumbag judge. In her warped brain (being generous), people like this fat tub of crap are the victims.
Garbage in.... Garbage out.
