    Oh look - no description of the perps who are punching people at random, and no pictures of the victims. That means the criminals are Obama's sons, and the victims are white. Does the press really think they're fooling anyone with this sort of biased nonsense?

    Remember: The OVERWHELMING majority of multi-race crimes are committed by blacks against whites. Stop lying, press.

    "The OVERWHELMING majority of multi-race crimes"

    @seDC

    Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa:

    That's a national statistic, and I'd hazard to guess that DC's statistics are even more lopsided.

    There's the proof. What do you have to say, besides juvenile, grade-school name calling?
