It depends on the context. Obviously it is offensive, people take offense to it. Black boy or white boy aren't any different to cracker or nigger.
Paddy or Taig can be offensive depending on the context, what I don't get is Fenian. I mean....it's a compliment to call an Irish peron a Fenian.

The article didn't mention the specifics of the beating.

You have to prove that a hate-crime is racially motivated. It's easy to prove a hate crime against skinhead gangs, because they are openly racist.

I've gotten jumped by 5 guys before and I have jumped people with a bunch of friends before,(when I was in High School), nobody ever got any permanent damages and nobody pressed charges. It's part of growing up.

If the roles were reversed and six white kids were looking at 100 years for beating a black kid, then you would be crying that the punishment is too harsh for a 16 yr old kid. Would that be just?

yes i would because of the double standard. I in no way condone getting a group of people to attack one person no matter what color, it is very cowardly. how do you know they would get 100 yrs, is that the sentence for a hate crime

I've given people history lessons before when I was called a Fenian.....a brief explanation of who they were, followed by the question of why they think it is offensive.
I didn't get a response.

"Mychal Bell, 16, a former Jena High School football star, and five other black students had been facing the potential of up to 100 years in prison if convicted of attempted murder, conspiracy and other charges for the December beating of the white student, who was knocked unconscious but not hospitalized."

That's what the black kid is facing.

The White kid wasn't even hospitalized from the beating and these kids are facing hard time, bieng tried as adults. I think it's the black kids that are the real victims here.

If you hang nuces from trees and then the black kids jump you for it, take your beating like a man, but don't be a ***** and press charges, because the kid deserved to get his ass kicked. He was enough of a tough guy to hang a rope and taunt the black kids but when it came down to it he cried to the cops because he got beat up.


HE DID'NT EVEN NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION
