  • Double standards are alive alright, why can`t they use ethnic profiling ? And how many youths of minority groups get let off time and time again.

  • The media never labels it a hate crime when a group of non-whites kill or maim a White person. But when the shoe is on the other foot they are very quick to cry racist. The real racism is aimed at White people as we are being forced to endure the government sponsered non-white invasion of OUR country!
