    Violence continues to come from every direction and at the hands of every skin color.

    This might be racial. I grew up skateboarding, and it is a clique. Skateboarding is generally considered an "all white" sport in this country, though it is popular worldwide with all races. It is pretty rare to see a black skateboarder in this country, even more rare to see one who is highly skilled and competes as this young man does. That could upset some. If so, it is nothing but jealousy.

    I don't know the facts, so I can't say for certain this was the cause of these fellows picking on this young man, but it certainly could be.

    Yes, it does, but not equally.

    Nice graph. But that graph shows nothing but gang member numbers. It doesn't show who is being violent.

    Not to mention you don't have to be in a gang to be violent.

    Perhaps a better picture in the US are the crime reports kept by the FBI. In 2011,http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/table-43

    TOTAL 9,499,725
    6,578,133 69.2 White
    2,697,539 28.4 Black
    142,422 1.5 American Indian or Alaskan Native
    81,631 0.9 Asian/Pacific Islander

    There are only a handfull of categories in which Blacks outnumber Whites when it comes to arrests made for crimes committed.

    This one does.

    Pretty obvious that the most violent person in U.S. society is likely to be a white or black man between the ages of 12 and 24.

    Again, it's not equal:
    Since the beginning of the 20th century, racial and ethnic differences in the rates of serious juvenile and adult offending have been repeatedly observed in the United States (Hawkins, Laub, & Lauritsen, 1998). The lifetime risk of being arrested and incarcerated for Black and Hispanic males is much higher than it is for White males (Blumstein & Graddy, 1982; Bonczar & Beck, 1997), rates of involvement in serious violence are much higher for Blacks than Whites (Morenoff, 2005), and Blacks have a higher rate of personal violence and homicide victimization than Whites do (Sampson & Lauritsen, 1997).

    Thank you captain obvious for opening our eyes to another racially motivated attack. We live in a sinful world where sin abounds regardless of skin color. God doesn't look at skin color and neither should we. Bullying is wrong regardless of skin color.

    Why are there no threads started where a white person or white group bully or beat up a white person? Because there is nothing to debate there. There is no difference between that and the thread started here. Bottom line, sinful world.

    It's funny that they mention serious crime in that study. But according to the FBI, Whites commited more of those in their most recent tally from 2011 in practically every category.

    Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter 48 to 50%
    Forcible rapes 65 to 33%
    Aggravated assaults 64 to 34%
    Burglary 67 to 32%
    Larceny theft 69 to 29%
    Vehicle-theft 64 to 34%
    Arson 72 to 26%
    Other assaults 66 to 32%
    Forgery and counterfeiting 66 to 33%
    Fraud 67 to 32%
    Embezzlement 66 to 32%
    Offenses against the family and children 65 to 32%
    Disorderly Conduct 63 to 34%
    Sex offenses 73 to 25%
