I will have to agree with auburn and Andrew, I have lived and traveled all across the US, the south is much less racist than the northern states. It would be silly to be as racist as some think we are down here, when the south contains the largest percentage of nonwhites.

The "Surprise level: 0" implies something quite different from what actually happened. Bad caption.

"The man charged with the murder is not only black, but a gay man as well. Apparently the suspect is a spurned ex-lover."

It's no wonder then, Usually the lefty media would've been all over this like a hungry baby at a titty bar.

"Even more funny is that 'study' has been debunked. There was less than 400 tweets that were caught in their filters, and they did not take into account attempts at satire, trolls and re-tweeting."

Only 400 Tweets nationwide? I'm going to have to agree. That is not enough to prove anything.

markust123-"That's funny because Alabama had the most racist Tweets in the country after President Obama's re-election."

Even more funny is that 'study' has been debunked. There was less than 400 tweets that were caught in their filters, and they did not take into account attempts at satire, trolls and re-tweeting.

And the group that did the study admitted their own biases by saying "we refuse to acknowldge the equivalenced of the terms being used to describe President Obama and Mitt Romney". In other words, some forms of racism are okay.

You're missing an important element: The man charged with the murder is not only black, but a gay man as well. Apparently the suspect is a spurned ex-lover.

So, we see that an openly gay mayoral candidate in Jackson, MS, is murdered, we assume it is a hate crime, until we find out that his ex-boyfriend did it.

Yeah, I wouldn't trust a daily mail story either. From more reliable sources, it appear he was an openly gay candidate and someone has been charged with his murder. It doesn't sound like a motive has been made public yet. So, too soon to call it racism or bigotry yet.

@patchgrabber, "I was actually trying to point out how black christians seem to hate gays more than most people. But I'm not sure whether he'd be more likely to be murdered if he was white."

I understood what you were saying. And no I don't see this as a race issue or race baiting like people are trying to make it out to be. The Southern Baptist churches push anti-gay bigotry onto their black congregation. That is where the hate comes from. It is church originated bigotry and as we can see here the results can be deadly.

So one black guy kills another and this is somehow due to racism and conservatism?

@auburnjunky, "Racism down here has pretty much gone by the wayside. As a matter of fact, I see more racism when I visit Northern states, like Wisconsin or Minnesota, than I do here in Alabama."

That's funny because Alabama had the most racist Tweets in the country after President Obama's re-election.

collegebound-"im sure republicans "hate" gays more than anyone..."

Seeing as neither the victim nor the assailant's political orientation are mentioned, nor relevent, that would appear to be an asanine 'observation'.

And also, I would second auburnjunkies thought that more racism is up north than in the South. I've lived in both. There may be more overt racism in the South, but I've lived in New York. The neighborhoods are segregated. Michigan is segregated. It's self-segregation, though. This isn't true in the South, they live together, in the same neighborhoods, in the same conditions. Vermont? They are highly xenophobic. They like diversity, but not if it moves to Vermont. I'm so glad I got out of there.

People seem to think Black people are these uber liberal progressives. This is so naive. Black people are basically identical to those damn racist religious bible-thumping white southerners (which makes sense, given where the black population was originally centered). The difference is that they vote Democrat.

Being gay in the black community is exceedingly more difficult than being gay in the white community. You just don't hear about this because some people are just a little weird about race.

If you think that's bad you should see how accepting gangbangers are.


which is funny/ironic seeing as the guys they idolize in prison routinely participate in gay sex

Yeah, I've noticed that being gay seems to be a much bigger problem within the black community. Of course that's just my observation, I'm neither black or gay.

....and now that I know it was a black person that is charged with the crime, I say WHAT THE HELL IS THIS RACE BAITING CRAP?!?!?!

Being from the South, I can say with confidence that him being black was not the cause.

Racism down here has pretty much gone by the wayside. As a matter of fact, I see more racism when I visit Northern states, like Wisconsin or Minnesota, than I do here in Alabama.

Well/ I say that, but black on white racism is just as bad, if not worse now than it has ever been. I guess I just ruined my whole statement lol.

Except for the fact that THIS is the guy charged with the crime:




So, Race Baiting is out.
