There has been a racist attack. Quick someone call Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Wait, I don’t think they will be riding in on this one.
From Fox Toledo:
Saturday afternoon around 4:45 p.m., 78-year-old Dallas Watts was walking home from the gas station at the corner of Starr and White in East Toledo.
He was confronted by six juveniles between the ages of 11 to 17, both white and black, and for the next three or four minutes was nearly beaten to death because of, as he says, the color of his skin.
"This white man said, 'Take him down!' and the next thing I knew, I was sucker punched from the back," Watts said.
For the next four minutes, the group of juveniles punched and kicked Watts, until he nearly passed out. Two customers at the nearby gas station stepped in to help.
"All I could hear before I passed out, 'Don't kill him, or we all go to jail,'" Watts recalled. "If (the customers) had not gotten involved, he would have killed me."
Watts is calling the weekend attack that occurred a block away from his Mason Street home a hate crime. During the attack, Watts says he brought up Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen killed by a block watch member Feb. 26.
"Why me? Remember Trayvon! Remember Trayvon!," Watts recalled. "I meant it as a peaceful way. What happened to Trayvon, I was not responsible for, I live 1,000 miles away! But they kept saying, 'Kill him! Kill Him! Kill him!' because I'm a white man."
Where are the calls for hate crimes investigations? Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Oh wait, they only come if the allegations fit their narrative.
Where is the Congressional Black Caucus on this one? Here is a crime that was clearly racially motivated. Where are their condemnations?
Perhaps the most stunning part of this is that detectives do not consider this to be a hate crime.
Let’s see. You have attackers of various ethnicities who make a racial comments that seem to explain their attack and this is not a hate crime.
Does anyone wonder if the victim had been black and racial slurs used, whether the authorities would even hesitate calling this a hate crime.
This is positively Orwellean. All are equal. Some are just more equal than others.
Carolyn, add to that the young college white couple in MS who were beaten and set on fire by black youths. No Jesse or Al coming to MS to proclaim this a "hate crime"!!

We all have color. What the heck does "no color" mean? Are these supposed to be WASP's? If so, I'm a white Catholic and, therefore, decidedly not a WASP.
as it was in Sanford, FL... the answer is concealed carry. Until the street mentality is forced to consider the consequences of their actions.. well, hell , until there IS ANY possibility of consequences... justice will have to be close to the crime. Society's " protectors" are no more than first responders... or Monday morning quarterbacks.
America has been pretty consistent in its response to lawlessness until the era of "civil rights". The answer appeared to be, then.. " In order to not appear guilty of giving minorities less than their efforts deserve, in America.. we must err the other way... give them MORE than their efforts suggest, or deserve.
Will it ever get to the center, when all people are just citizens, or non-citizens, and deserve for their rights and safety to be protected accordingly? Not as long as we have the media that we have... and no chance that the Democrats will ever confess to the mistakes of their Cabrini Green ways of buying votes...dependence.
Speaking of Jesse Jackson. . .have you heard about this?
Fox [News] hires Jesse Jackson’s daughter
I'm getting sick and tired of their "fair and balanced" nonsense--how about you?
Nancy, After Beck was railroaded by Soros, Media Matters and the Main Stream Media, it seems FOX has changed. and not for the better. Or is me just me?
My family and friends dont watch Fox anymore, after Beck was forced off the show. They are about ratings, not about saving the country. Just follow the money, follow the corruption.
We don't watch Fox News anymore, either. Anything of value they may have is on their website or on Fox Nation. As a matter of fact, we don't have cable or a satellite either, just a media streaming device for the TV. It's great. Saves lots of money, too.
Beyond pale, i think Fox has drunk the coolaid also, along with the other liberal left wing spewers. I no longer watch any news, it's all the same old crap, in the end they all bow down to their messiah, "Berry"
Did you know this--I didn't:
. . .Michelle Laverne Robinson, and Jackson's daughter, Santita, were best friends and remain so. Jackson's daughter is godmother to one of the Obama kids. . .
Nancy, Now I am mad...This is nothing more than suck up crap!!
They are waiting word from their fearless leader the Chief Organizer
