Public reaction to white male vs black male stealing a bike
This is what we mean we say the black is already assumed to be a criminal.
Also notice the tone difference. How the black kid is being shamed and how the white man is given the benefit of the doubt.
I don’t find these reactions shocking, just disgusting and far too typical.
also, it’s kind of funny watching honkies get all upset.
Rochelle, Ga. made national headlines recently when Wilcox County high school held its first-ever integrated prom last weekend.
Now, nonprofit environmental law organization Earthjustice is targeting the town for another instance of racial discrimination: its sewage treatment.
According to Earthjustice, “White residents of Rochelle live on the south side of the city’s railroad track. African-Americans live on the other side.” The city maintains pipes in the predominantly white neighborhood, but not the African-American side. “As a result,” writes Earthjustice, “untreated sewage backs up and overflows into the streets and the yards of residents on the north side of the tracks.”
“Sewage overflows my pipes and flows under my house. It’s time somebody did something about it. They [the white community] live comfortably and I want to live comfortably, too,” said Rochelle resident Rufus Howard.
Howard is one of nine Rochelle residents represented by Earthjustice, who will file a lawsuit under the Clean Water Act if the city does not resolve the issue in 60 days.

Rudy Chavez assaulted another inmate, purported to be a child molester, with boiling water and received extra time on his sentence for the attack. Chavez indicates here that, despite the extra felony charges he received, he has no regret. He states that, if ever given the opportunity, he would not hesitate to kill a child molester even if it meant he would receive a life sentence. [x]
