I don't understand how this is racial either. This is all about the hypocrisy of the media business, although I too believe this is title page material. On the other hand, I can't identify myself with the American news anyhow ("You call THAT news?!").

Just one more piece of proof to me that humanity is actually well deserving to be wiped off this planet.

Mindless, aren't you contradicting yourself a little? After admitting that the media would have reacted with far more hype were this situation racially-reversed, you conclude by scapegoating the TV for any sentiments which might be stirred by a story like this. So which is it? What's your real explanation for why people might react to a story like this in a way you obviously disapprove of?

Why is this a racial thing? Just because four crazy-sadistic-hopefully-end-up-having-life men happen to be black and their victims happen to be white, means that ALL Black people are worthy of ridicule and hatred? So are you saying those few Skin Heads who in order to get their respect from their fellow skin heads (who are white) have to go out and viciously murder a gay person, black person, or female person, just to earn some red shoe laces are grounds for people to hate all white people? And what about the Hispanic gang equivalent to the bloods or crypts, are we suppose to hate all Hispanics for the horrible things they do? NO People HATE the Actions of the individual(S) who are DOING these horrible things and NOT the race from which they come from. There's madness everywhere don't let it be you your heart too...

All of you racist fags out there:

Yes, they would have reacted more if it was reverse,
but that's how the media are. And those "blacks" as the guy in the movie called them. (Even though I'm pretty sure I learned that black is an adjective and not a noun at school)
did not kill those kids because the kids were white, they killed them just to be @$$holes.

And no, the news aren't not reporting because they fear people are going to call them racists, it's because they find it more important to tell about the colour of Britney Spear's new thong.

And this is the 2008, people! You can't judge people by the colour of their skin, the only reason you guys think all "blacks" are murderers and rapists, is because that's all you hear from your TV down at your parents basement, because you're allergic to sunlight, and have never had a conversation with another human being, black or white. Now grow up, and get out of your living room!

@myrikal

It's not as simple as that. There is a whole hell of a lot going on in the world, and you have a finite number of reporters and amount of newspaper space/broadcasting time. How do you pick what you cover?

A reputable news company picks what appears the most important and the most representative of what's happening in the world right now.

A disreputable one picks what'll sell most papers/get the most TV ad revenue.

So if your media are after ratings, not the truth, and your public don't want to see/read a certain kind of story...

This is why I like the BBC. Funded by the TV licence fee (a form of tax, basically), they don't have to chase ratings. Not in the news anyway.

In fact, they have even more incentive to be a top-class news network; if they weren't, they wouldn't be able to hold onto the massive worldwide respect and acclaim they get. Name three news networks, and you'll perhaps get CNN, Reuters, and the BBC...from a tiny country of 60 million people.

@shinboi

There's no such thing as "reverse racism". That's still racism.

Race should be mentioned in the news reports if there is evidence to suggest that it was a racially-motivated crime. Otherwise, there's little reason to mention it other than for identification purposes.

Swap race with wearing glasses and you'll see what I mean: if a group of people wearing glasses attacks someone who isn't, and the reason appears to be robbery, paying attention to the attackers' eyewear would be odd. But if the reason appears to be some glasses-v-nonglasses animosity, and the attackers were seen yelling "You f-ing 20-20s!" then you're justified in bringing eyewear into it. A spectacle-motivated crime.

Writing that amused me greatly. :)

I have an idea. How about all the news stations just post, are you ready for this, the news. Whatever happens, put it out there. And where was the racist, er I mean the reverend Al Sharpton shouting justice for these men for their hate crime. Newsflash people, for the media it is always about political correctness and ratings and not about what is right.

habbazoot, I wasn't speaking to you like you were 5 years old, but I was condescending to you. You should really learn the difference. I see...we should try and keep quiet and can't be outraged by crimes like this so as not to "fuel the hatred", right? I'm not saying we should fuel their speeches. What I'm saying is that had the roles been reversed this country would have burned. Remember the big hoopla because Don Imus called a bunch of black Girls Nappy Headed hos? So I contend, when you grow a little wiser, maybe you'll learn how the world REALLY works.

Michael Savage is a complete idiot.

How is this a racist crime? What these four pieces of poo did was horrible, and they all should spend the rest of their pathetic lives getting gang banged in prison as far as I'm concerned.

old story, old news, old inbox piece. It was not racial that the news did not cover it. It was covered, but bigger news hit nationally. If people want to raise a stink about the media, choose something recent

This is a classic case of what most people try to avoid, is reverse-racism. Since it doesn't involve black people being the victims, but instead does a U-turn, and shows blacks abusing white, it obviously isn't worth any part in the news. Whats wrong with society, is we are trying to please everybody at all times. This is obvious evidence that shows that the news are too afraid of being called racists or racially choosing their news, to put this in their news. Everybody knows that if this was on the news, blacks all over would say that this would be a racist news story. Now we don't know the reason for this crime is, but it is apparent that we should stop trying to please all races and peoples at all times, to me this is worthy of news coverage all over. Honestly this guy was right at the beginning, this has pissed me off.

i know how the world works and the rascism it has. but arent we trying to stay away from it? dont get me wrong, jesse jackson/al sharpton annoy the crap out of me, but that doesnt mean that we should fuel their "speeches" with the rasict poo people have been saying. yes, its true that jesse and al would go crazy if the races were vice versa. but its their jobs to annoy 80% of the country

newlife I couldn't agree with you more. Had the kids that were tortured and killed been black, ol' jessie jackson and al sharpton (I refuse to capitalize their names, because they don't count and people) would have been up in arms and much like anything else that happens to black people, would have had this country up in arms

Habbazoot: maybe when you grow up and understand that, that's how the world works you'll be a lot better off.

what the hell is wrong with people? do they go outside and say "hey, im going to go rape someone then mutilate them right in front of their girlfriend!"

and the fact that the news didnt pay attention to this, at first, makes me even more mad

and i just watched the video of the CNN coverage. from the beginning i saw, they dont even really care about the crime. they jsut care about if it was a hate crime and some crazy KKK guy making a video on how it was
