This video says 30 people

Thanks for this. I have communicated with the editor, and had the wrong number. 30 people on 2 is still not a simple assault case.

Haha, shit... I used to live in Norfolk. Believe me guys, it isn't all bad. The liberal neighborhoods are quite nice.
 Quoting: Charlie the Choo-Choo


I don't know if I'd call them "liberal" neighborhoods, but some parts of downtown Norfolk that have been gentrified are now full of yuppies.

Still, putting this "non-event" under a microscope by pinning it yet again when there was nothing to rage about in the first place really irks me...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1236276


Take a single walk through Gent and try to tell me it's not a fucking liberal neighborhood.

There's even that part of the neighborhood everyone ignores once you go under the bridge and suddenly you're in the black neighborhood.
 Quoting: Charlie the Choo-Choo


I think you mean Ghent, and it's basically a university town since it's near Old Dominion, but so what? If you cross any bridge in the Tidewater area, you end up in a black neighborhood, with the exception of Poquoson and other parts across the James River. So what's your point? It's obvious the demographic of the area has more black people of color than say McClean or Fairfax, VA.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1236276


Meh, you've got a point.

And yeah, Ghent.

This story just does not pass the sniff test. 100 people at the projects beat up a white couple and the paper is now trying to explain why it's not news.

Just unbelievable.
 Quoting: Hope_Full


Read the article, it is UNBELIEVABLE.

I'm not even sure if the writer himself was believing the placating and limp-wristed verbiage he was writing.

If a black man and a black woman had been beaten up by 100 whites at a Baptist picnic, it sure as hell would have been labelled a racist attack, and nothing but that.

NewSpeech and NewThought have surely arrived.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1284302


HA! I did read it, and that's what's so amusing about your comment. You folks have skipped off onto a tangent that is magnificently detached from the original story and reality. No wonder the weak minds of innocent seekers of truth are scrambled and confused.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1236276


I read it. I stand by what I said, having read it. It's there in black and white.

What is it about Political Correctness that you find so...compelling?

Stop using this months buzzword "Political Correctness". I said you went off on a tangent, nothing about PC. To be more specific, you're using hyperbole to hype up an incident that was pretty insignificant. It's local matter, that's it...

 Quoting: closing eyes

They certainly aren't DEAD or this wouldn't be classified as a "simple assault" whether the classification is justified or not.

Regarding the armchair warrior comment... DEAD ON. It's people like the OP who talk the talk, but can't walk the walk. You want folks like the KKK, NEO-NAZI's and White Power movements to do your dirty work for you.

NOTHING FREAKIN' NEW in America.

YOU people let this happen so do something about it like the Martin family did.

Why do you think black stories get posted... because black families/people get RILED up about it and contact the right people.

The "right" people in your case would be your politicians... but oh wait... they honestly don't give a rat's arse about you and that's what's really angering at the end of the day.
You are the 99%... unless you aren't, and in that case, you're disposable.

Black people used to be arm chair warriors.. or should I say back seat warriors to until the 60s happened.

"People like the OP..."

What???

Getting the word out is a BIG part of the battle. That's why this particular story is so onerous. 30 people attack one white couple and the newspaper keeps it quiet.

Now - thanks to people who read - this story has gone viral. The ploy of the Virginian Pilot to sweep this under the rug has failed - big time.

It was actually 35. Also, witnesses said some of the youths stated this is for Tray Martin.
