And I thought people claim that racial intimidation is a thing of the past and black people should just get over it.

Just so no one is confused, these men are being tried for an arson that occured in 2002, not 2006.

The title of your post might have led people to believe that a new racially-motivated arson had recently taken place in Taylor this year, when that is not the case. This is actually just an update of the high-profile and racially-motivated arson that occured in Taylor back in 2002 and was heavily discussed both here on this forum and in the local media.

My bad. I read the article fairly quick and thought that it was associated with a recent hate crime in Taylor.

My apologies to all and I appreciate the correction.

OK but still does it lessen the significance of the issue at hand?

"Ok it was a hate crime...BUT IT HAPPENED BACK IN 2002!

You're "right" Detroit Flossin, it "sounded much better" without the clarification. Again, Warriorfan's point was clarification, not at all to lessen the significance.

1956, 2006, 2056, doesn't matter. There will always be assholes who hate people for no other reason than their skin color or ethnicity. Hell, America is not the only country this shit happens in...it's a mankind issue. As sad as that is.

Agreed Gwhobbies, just look at the nearly million people who lost their lives in the genocide in Rwanda back in the 1990's, or the tens of thousands in Bosnia around the same time. And then it was literally brother against brother. Hate and racial crimes have no border!

Detroit Flossin, bring it on. Perhaps you'll spew more erroneous military (as well as other topics) claims at me or use your DD214 to give me a paper cut. Bottom line, you are a phony and a fool.

Geez MTD, D_S was just making a point no need for the "Detroit Flossin" name tagging.

I hate people that aren't like me. I also hate people that are like me but have more than me as well as people that are like me but have less than me.

Everyone else is OK in my book.

Goat, before you speak, check Detroit Flossin's addresses as well as responses to me on other threads.

Which year was it that Rasputin implied that all Black Detroiters (because he speaks for everyone) would burn down the home or business of white people moving back into Detroit?

Seems like it was after 2002.... trying to remember...

Jt,

Your post title was my thought when I heard the news, except now I'm wondering if it's 1952 or 2002. I'm wondering what the response is in Taylor by the regular everyday folks. I know the politicians have probably said it was a terrible thing, but I wonder if the average resident is as apalled by this as they should be?
