why does race matter?

White people kill other white people also. But when a black person kills someone white, people get racist why is this? White man john Gardner killed chelsea king, Jerry Buck inman killed Tiffany souers, Michael King killed Denise Amber Lee, James Biela killed Brianna Denison, David Sullivan killed Anna Svidersky, Shaun Earl Arender raped and hanged a 6 year old girl from a tree. White people kill other whites also, so why do whites get mad when a black kills a white, your more likely to be killed by your own race.

    So do you think black people don't get mad about whites killing blacks?

    The overwhelming majority of black people are murdered by other black people, not white people.

    It doesn't. It has merely recently driven into peoples mind as the same old divide and conquer agenda. In the sixteen hundreds America was capturing people from Africa and enslaving them, at the same time poor Europeans were often offered a chance at prosperity by indentured slavery where the economic slave agreed to come to the new world and work off the price of the voyage then some by agreeing to work say ten years as a slave for their rich 'benefactor' these indentured servants or slaves lived and worked along with the captured African slaves. When ever slaves would try to escape you usually found any recaptured group was a random mix of both black and whites. Before slave laws became as cruel as they did America's elite who owned these people started getting antsy, afraid of the sheer numbers of discontent slaves drinking and socializing together on Sundays or after a very long hour filled day they were becoming bonded in their shared misery. Sooner or later excuses and delays aside the indentured were going to have to be freed. They would elites figured become huge instigators and advocates for their still in bondage brothers that's about the time draconian laws started to come into being and all the racial inferiority rhetoric was being made gospel.

    Why are you living in the 60's. If anyone kills another person, they don't care what color the killer is. Their love ones are dead. Who does that anymore now a days.

    Race should never matter. There are good and evil in all races. God created all men equal. All races bleed the same color--Red.

    I rather agree. Murder is murder; I don't see that a racial motive makes it any worse than, say a financial motive.

    The concept of a "hate crime" is weird, especially since it doesn't apply to a crime that is truly motivated by hatred, such as the average crime of passion.

    I'm sorry but I think you are way off base with this statement.
