Philly authorities still refusing to charge black thugs with hate crimes.


Brutal racially motivated black on white mob attacks are now a weekly occurrence in Philadelphia.

Yet the perpetrators of the racially motivated attacks are never charged with hate crimes. The media often censors the race of the perps and hides aspects of the story.

Many large cities still absolutely refuse to charge any black perpetrator with a hate crime.

From Philly.com…

Police said yesterday that a cabbie and his passenger were attacked by a group of three teens at 15th and Chestnut streets around 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Center City. During the attack, according to police, three black teens — two 17-year-olds and a 15-year-old — shouted racial slurs at the white passenger.

The passenger ran off at some point and the cabbie was able to scare the teens away with a tire iron, police said. Luckily, officers were able to catch the three teens and have charged them as juveniles with aggravated assault and related offenses.

Since the passenger ran off, police were not able to confirm today that Goldman was the passenger, and Goldman has not immediately responded to an email.

Meanwhile, when I arrived to work today, my email inbox was filled with people who wanted to know if these three black teens would be charged with a hate crime. This is not the first crime I’ve written about where people have asked that and while I’m no longer shocked at some of the language used in these emails, it still saddens me beyond belief.

I called police this morning to ask if there were any updates in the case and to see if the teens would be charged with a hate crime. Because the passenger hadn’t been identified, police said they could not charge the teens with a hate crime or with any crime against that passenger. They charged the kids with assaulting the driver.

Not once does Goldman mention race in his column. His ire is directed not toward the young offenders or their skin color but to the dozens of bystanders who witnessed the attack and did nothing. (The bystanders would have also been all or mostly black)
