Hate & ignorance 101:
Fighting back against alleged racial profiling and stereotyping leading to violence, by violently perpetuating and participating in actual racial profiling and stereotyping.
(Gainesville Sun) –Police are investigating the “racially motivated” beating of a 27-year-old man who was walking home from midtown bars early Saturday [April 7, 2012] when he said he was jumped by five to eight men who shouted “Trayvon” before the attack.
The exclamation was an apparent reference to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old from Miami who was shot and killed in February walking back to his father’s girlfriend’s house in Sanford [Florida].
Investigators believe that case was the catalyst for the beating Saturday in Gainesville.
“We do believe that the crime was racially motivated,” Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said.
The assailants were black, while the victim is white, Valuri said.
Valuri said his injuries were consistent with being jumped by a group.
During what he told police was a five-minute beating, he sustained injuries to the left eye, abrasions to his palms and a cut on his right kneecap, and Valuri said he would likely have “permanent disfigurement to the left side of his face.”
He was taken to Shands at the University of Florida for treatment.

As a social media experiment, I yesterday morning I tweeted this:

I not only sent it to conservatives and libertarians by attaching the hashtags; #tcot #ocra #teaparty and #tlot, but to progressives as well, by including the prog tags #p2 & #p21. At last count, it has been retweeted 25 times. Retweets from progressives, are next to none. How dissapointing. Though in all fairness, there are a couple of retweets from accounts that may not have been from conservative tweeps. But, it is safe to say that overall 99% of the RT’s were from conservatives.
