110th and Lenox? No description of the perps? No Al Sharpton quote vowing a Day of Outrage? No demands for a national conversation on racial hatred?

Obviously it was those papist Irish brats who done it again.

Idiot teens acting like idiot teens?  NOWAI

This is why it's a shame we don't allow the lash in schools (or at home) anymore.

I knew subby was kidding.   There are no Sikh professors in small southern towns

New York City is an enlightened liberal utopia? News to me.

Rum and sodomy are, however, still acceptable.

A surprising number of hate-crime victims aren't even in the group that the perpetrator intended to target.

Sikhs are modern day real life Paladins. They are required to carry a dagger at all times to defend the weak.

Bathysphere is right, Sikhs are badass.

I mean seriously.  The religion pretty much traces its origins to combating religious oppression.

Not only are they badass, Sikhism is one of the few religions I find little, if any fault with. This makes me so sad and angry.

enlightened liberal utopia of New York City

Only an ignorant redneck that has never been to a big city could think such a thing.

This vindicates slavery, Jim Crow, voter suppression, inadequate education systems, rampant poverty, and general shiattiness of the South. You backward racists were right all along.

To all racists  Sikhs != Muslims

and considering sikhs and muslim history, muslims would have a laugh at the confusion.

I'm amazed at the lack of awareness of cultural identities our teens exhibit nowadays.  Don't they realize Osama has been dead for several years now?

It's almost as if making broad characterizations about people in various geographical regions can lead to  embarrassing inaccuracies.

you might find no fault with the concepts of the religion, but Sikhs as a people are no better or worse than anyone else.

I used to live in an area of London which was mostly Indian and Sikh, and there were a loooot of sexist, hypocritical men around. all 'devout' Sikhs

Who said NYC was an enlightened liberal utopia?  Some idiot redneck in a small southern town, I'd imagine.

The vast majority of that yelling did not come from New York. And what did come from NY was almost entirely localized to the address occupied by Fox News.

To be fair, while they are all required to carry around a kirpan, Sikh in NYC often pour glue in the scabbard so they can't actually unsheathe it.

It turns out their stereotyping was wrong, and that just further proves that libs are dumb.

Last I checked, Central Park North wasn't exactly a hell-hole. It's pretty gentrified these days. I bet most of the people biatching about it couldn't even afford an apartment there.

The sky is blue, and that just further proves that libs are dumb.

That argument makes just about as much sense.

New York is full of the worst people you can find, this isn't surprising.
 
2013-09-23 09:43:24 AM  
There is nothing "enlightened" about NYC. I have seen some serious-assed racism go down right in front of me here, ESPECIALLY against Muslims or people they think are Muslims. I'd be curious what the particulars here are. If this was Middle Village or Glendale or Howard Beach or Broad Channel or much of Staten Island, oh yes, they are the bigoted rednecks of NYC. 110th and Lenox? Well, that area's changing, but it's still mostly a lower income black area. Anti-Islam in that area's a bit at variance with the multitudes of black Muslims one can find in Harlem in general, but as I said, the area's changing.

Anyone has a better idea about what's up with 110th and Lenox? Apart from it being a train stop, so in theory this could have been anyone?

To be fair, NYC polls showed a majority of residents were against the mosque.
But then again, when you broke the poll down by borough, the biggest whiners were Staten Islanders, while the actual Manhattan residents were most in favor of the construction.
 
2013-09-23 09:45:48 AM  
It is the 2nd or 3rd most segregated city in America, depending on the metric you use.  Sucks that we can't all just get along.

Sad irony: these dumbsh*ts beat a Sikh man into submission because they're striking back at radical Islamists, yet Sikhs have never had any sort of alignment with Islam.

Deeper Irony: hate crimes are often driven by a sense of loss of place in society.  A desperation forms in the perpetrators' minds that their world and their dreams are dwindling and someone must be blamed, so they choose a convenient and visible target.  This exact mindset is what drives people into terrorist groups, which is what these thugs were nominally mad about in the first place.  They have more in common with the terrorists than the victim!

Yeah, all the other hate crimes against Sikhs were major media events. Rallies, Al Sharpton, national conversations, all of that. Why, I remember when that happened like it was something you made up to be an asshole.
