    Hey man, you referred to those clean cut dudes as "white attackers". Why you wanna go racial on us like dat? Why you wanna play the race card? Are you a racist? You need to be politically correct like I did in my comment. WRAL censored me but they didn't censor you. That ain't right! Now i'm an angry white man! Somebody is violating my rights!

    Have the police caught the 3 attackers in the downtown Raleigh robbery of a few weeks ago, the one leaving a man with brain injuries? Those were "clean cut" white attackers.

    I see my original post offended someone and it was censored by WRAL. Thus, I will be politically correct this time. I have chosen my words carefully this time and wrote them down on a que card. Here goes.... Oh my, what a horrible crime, I certainly hope they catch the people repsonsible for this!
