Black hate speech?

East New York is a crime-prone area inhabited overwhelmingly by blacks and Hispanics but, although the police have witnesses to the crime, they are saying nothing about ethnicity. Blacks however generally seem to get a pass over hate speech so maybe we can read between the lines here
"The family of a Muslim man beaten in Brooklyn over the weekend says his attackers spewed hate speech when they jumped him during his lunch break.

Kamal Uddin, 57, a construction worker from Bangladesh, was beaten so severely in the Saturday attack that he thinks it's August, his family said. He has told family from his hospital bed that the punks who jumped him in East New York targeted him because of his religion.

He was wearing a traditional Muslim prayer cap at the time, and was not robbed of valuables. "They asked him if he was Muslim, and after that he doesn't know what happened," said his daughter, Rohima Begum, 30, at a press conference last night outside Brookdale University Hospital.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating, but the case has not been classified as a hate crime because witnesses [other blacks?] have not backed up Uddin's claim that his attackers spouted hate speech, police said.


No doubt some people will criticize for mentioning the racial aspect of this matter but I view all censorship with a critical eye -- and censoring mentions of race just makes me try to fill in what we are not being told.

Many African-Americans have "adopted" Islam but there is still a huge divide between them and the Arab Muslims.

The Arabs believe the African Americans are inferior and just playing at being Muslims.

That's very true bogs. Most of America's black converts are not real Muslims, they simply enjoy looking and acting like Muslims. It's all phony. This was learned from spending 30 years in the NYPD, and all of it in NYC's toughest black neighborhoods.

Funny how the claims of shouts of racial epithets never need to be backed-up in white on black 'hate' crimes.
