Re: White Trump Supporter Kidnapped and Tortured: WTF
Right, this is an issue on both ends of the spectrum. They need to stop associating all blacks with crimes comitted by blacks and all whites with crimes commited by whites. It only propagates more hatred and division between the races.

Had the tables been turned and the script was flipped, we probably wouldnt hear the end of it, till maybe 2018. If the kidnapee was black, he would have been the new Mike brown.
When these stories dont get acknowlegement from the media, some whites feel disenfranchised, and it allows groups like the alt-right to make use of this story to fuel their hatred. There are BLM members on twitter either ignoring this or are more concerned with the name "BLM", then the actual incident that happened. It's dumb shit like this that makes me hate BLM, it's as if they can't show empathy for another human being that isnt in their racial group, and I'm not saying all, but the figure heads on top. I honestly don't care if BLM gets blamed for this, the movement needs to stay in 2016 and be reborn and retitled as something else in 2017. It only generates hatred and racial division.
