    With out a doubt if the roles were reversed it would be a hate crime, the NAACP, ACLU and every other black group would be involved.

    Words cant describe how I am feeling right now... seething at the blatant liberalism and discrimination comes to mind. If the roles were reversed people would be screaming from the roof tops on a national level about this racist assault. And if the victims had been armed and one of these young racist punks had been shot, you can bet that this poor man and hs family would be beseiged by protestors led by ilk like Quanel X..

    Amazing, disgusting, and very disturbing. First and foremost, this is a serious crime -- hate or otherwise. Secondly, it is sympthomatic of the growing extreme divide in this country. When Americans began to be labelled "anglo", "white", "African", "Asian", "Mexican" Americans it started us on categorizing people and setting up "us" vs. "them" even more than before.

    Perhaps some CCL's need to be issued up in Ohio.

    For sure a racist attack and I wish the family could have put at least one or two in the ICU. Now any one who wants to tell me that the only racist in this country are white feel free. Where is Jesse Jackson screaming for the civil rights of this family being discriminated against for there skin color? Racism is a problem yes. But how come there are no black or Latino actors on TV telling folks not to be racist? If this offends anyone or sounds racist, I'm not racist. I do not intend for this to sound or be construed as racist comments. I am simply pointing out that white people are the only ones labeled "racist" any other skin color.

    Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ''This is our world'' and ''This is a black world'' as they confronted Marshall and his family.


    Can you imagine if someone "white" said this $hit? What in the hell are they hearing at home?


    Personally, if I identified with Mexico, thought this was a Mexican World, I'd take my happy a$$ to Mexico and make it a better place.

    Akron police say they aren't ready to call it a hate crime or a gang initiation.

    Hate Crime-plain and simple. The only lucky thing about this crime, is that none of Marshall's or the two friends got killed by these animals.

    I wish someone would contact Mr Marshall, someone with more experience than me (obviously) as the comment "The Marshalls say they fear retaliation at home or when they go outside. They are considering arming themselves, but they're concerned about the possible problems that come with guns."

    I think maybe a little education about firearms and safety would help this family as they all seem to be self-defense or self-preservation oriented.

    I'm thinking whether you are black, white, brown, green purple or rainbow colored, this behavior is unacceptable.

    Exactly. The whole "hate crime" thing is absolutely stupid. It was a way for minorities to get special treatment when they are a victim of an assault. It's as if to give stiffer penalties to non-minority criminals and less to minorities.

    The bottom line is what was the crime? I don't care what the attacker is thinking, I care about what he/she is doing and punish them based on that. No one can prove what someone is thinking, they can only go by what they were saying and doing. We might as well have Alien Crime. I can beat the living snot out of someone and get a lighter sentence because I thought they were an alien who was going to beam me up.

    All that aside, what happened was a Hate Crime as hate crime is defined. It seems they don't have any suspects so of course, they're tucking their tail trying not to stir things up by calling it what it is. Otherwise, they might have a riot because they're using the term Hate Crime in a case where the victims are non-minority. Can't have that, that's their crime to hang on to.
