This stuff is bad, but I always have to wonder if being the victim of a hate-inspired crime ultimately feels any worse than being the victim of a random crime. If you vandalize my house randomly, I'm not going to feel any better about it than if you did it because you hate some group I happen to be a part of.

What say you?

Good point, I would feel equally violated, my month old Grand Vittara was stolen from my driveway in NY, woke up and it was sheer disbelief at first and then shock and sadness.

I have been when I was 16 a black guy stole my wallet and said see ya you stupid rich white boy.

He was so smart that he got into his car a drove away, his license plate came number came in handy when I called the police.

My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi.

I've been to that home depot many times. That whole area over there seems to be a crazy bunch.

Well, murder is murder, you are dead either way.

I am child of survivors. My mom and dads were in Nazi concentration camps. Our house back in Los Angeles was vandalized. Had they just tagged the house with standard graffiti, that would have been one thing. No big deal and nothing a can of paint will not fix. But no, they put swastikas on the house. That changes things a bit donít you think? I know I think it does. It goes from something that is general and PIA to something that is specifically directed (in this case my mom and dad) and it goes far deeper than a PIA.

A noose has a very specific meaning, especially for blacks. IMO, it is the same as a swastika.

Just my $0.02 worth.

Probably a bunch of stupid high school kids thinking they're being funny. The publicity is exactly what they want, and by gosh they're getting it.

True but they are getting their publicity at the cost of others.
