Hypocrisy Alert!

Another Bus Attack Reported
Patrick Green and Robert Rothe told WBAL TV 11 News that they were antagonized and attacked after boarding the No. 64 bus late Monday night in south Baltimore.

The men, who are white, said the attackers yelled racial slurs and that no one on board, including the driver, stepped in to stop the attack. MTA surveillance cameras captured four men boarding the bus at the Hanover Street stop Monday night, moments before Green and Rothe got on.

Green and Rothe said they believe other passengers were afraid to help and that the driver refused to call for help.

"We were saying the whole time to the driver, 'You need to help us, call the police,'" Green told 11 News reporter Kerry Cavanaugh. "He said, 'I can't. I'll get in trouble.'"

Roth said the driver closed the door and drove away, even though the attack continued once they got off the bus.
Now imagine with me, if you will, that the attackers were white and the victims were black. This story would be front page news, on screen on the cable channels 24/7. Protests would already be organized. The heads of the MTA officials demanded on silver platters. Jesse Jackson would be hoarse from yelling, and Al Sharpton would have blisters on his feet from marching. Especially, especially, if the authorities had the audacity to say this: "MTA officials said they're not currently classifying the incident as a hate crime. They said they're simply calling it a common assault."
