Now this story is straight up racism.

Hope they get life in jail or the death penalty.

Mothereffers! mad

Travis McMichael then got out of his truck and confronted Arbery, later telling police he shot him in self-defence after Arbery refused his order to get on the ground, Special Agent Richard Dial said. A close examination of the video of the shooting shows the first shot was to Arbery's chest, the second was to his hand and the third was to his chest again before he collapsed in the road, Dial said.

Confederate flag seen in video

Bryan, who recorded that video, said he heard McMichael say a racist epithet as he stood over Arbery's body before police arrived, Dial said. Dial said Bryan gave investigators the information a week after the McMichaels' arrest, and there's no indication he said it to Glynn County investigators before that.

Dial also testified that police body camera from the shooting scene showed a Confederate flag sticker on a toolbox in Travis McMichael's truck and at least two more racial slurs in messages on his phone. The U.S. Department of Justice said on May 11 that it is "assessing all the evidence to determine whether federal hate crime charges are appropriate."

...First, Donald Trump’s support in the 2016 campaign was clearly driven by racism, sexism, and xenophobia. While some observers have explained Trump’s success as a result of economic anxiety, the data demonstrate that anti-immigrant sentiment, racism, and sexism are much more strongly related to support for Trump.

...Trump did not do especially well with non-college-educated whites, compared to other Republicans. He did especially well with white people who express sexist views about women and who deny racism exists.

...Even more alarmingly, there is a clear correlation between Trump campaign events and incidents of prejudiced violence. FBI data show that since Trump’s election there has been an anomalous spike in hate crimes concentrated in counties where Trump won by larger margins. It was the second-largest uptick in hate crimes in the 25 years for which data are available, second only to the spike after September 11, 2001. Though hate crimes are typically most frequent in the summer, in 2016 they peaked in the fourth quarter (October-December). This new, higher rate of hate crimes continued throughout 2017.

I read the 911 call where the woman says "there is a black man running down the street, come quickly". WTF? This is just sickening.

So when a black man is running down the street, you're not alowed to mention that?

What should she have said?
There is a person moving fast (running would be disrespectfull to disabled people) down the street?

Do you even know this case? That was literally all he was doing, running down the street. He had committed no crime - he was going for a jog. That is why the call is sickening.

Exactly! At least most people on this site get it. If it was a white man would they have said I see a white man running down the street? I think not.

Did she call to say White men were chasing him down the street or called because she was concerned he was being harmed? No.

Absolutely not. They wouldn’t make those calls if it was a White male.
