story gets removed from /r/news

This is something I don't think we need to start. However I think that bit of information would be perfect for /v/meanwhileonreddit. I'd rather us focus on the story at hand.

Now for the post. Damn. I just don't understand people who think this way. Like I don't understand what catfish think. I'm glad that they were dumb enough to post the evidence online to make it easier for them to get caught, however the fact that her school-mates could see it, just disturbing.

It's because they are shitty humans. From my short experience in life I have learned that it's the up bringing and the community/culture that make a person, not skin colour.

I don't see how melanin content and facial structure has anything to do with it.

I'd make the point that it's easy to feel vitriolic in these situations...the sort of "I'd flip the switch myself" argument. But I hold that after the anger you're really not left with much place else to go. It's also distilling a relatively nuanced situation down to a point that limits discussion. As a community, I'd hope that we can have more verbose discussions while still sharing different perspectives.

Can we not start this when Voat is still trying to get off the ground? Just because we are trying to escape reddit's censorship of hate doesn't we need to be hateful.

Yeah, I'm not sure why this is here. We have rule #8, bemoaning reddit doesn't equate to news. Perhaps because it links to an actual story? I'm not sure. As for what you were saying, I take a pretty apathetic view. I guess I would note that violent crime statistics are trending down and I take comfort that most people choose not to act that way. To me, trying to frame it as an issue of skin color isn't really helpful because it fails to take a larger world view. I would argue it's trying to keep us fearful and easier to control.

While I agree, it's a hot topic among migrants, and you can't discuss these things on Reddit with all the censorship, so it is kind of in the forefront of a lot of people's minds even if they are no longer redditors. It's kind of like trashing an ex.

Not everyone cares about trashing everyone else's collective ex. Let's move on and keep Reddit drama on /v/meanwhileonreddit like the top comment proposes.

since there is no report button on submissions it would be on the mods to enforce their own rule set (see rule 8)

Wait, are you suggesting that these pseudo-liberal scumfucks have become the very bigoted monsters they once fought against and are now brandishing an alternative flavor of bigotry and spreading it across the site that shall not be named and believe that censoring stories that have to do with black youths will help their narrative that white folks are to be blamed for every indecent savage action preparated by the poor black community just so they can pat themselves on the back and fill the empty void that is drilled into their religious-needing hearts? Well damn.

My guess is that it was posted with a similar title to this, highlighting the racial issue, when that wasn't mentioned in the actual article and isn't relevant to the story. Having a title not taken from the article is against /r/news rules.

Rotherham Syndrome: don't complain about the rapes, because that could lead to racism, which is worse than rape.

How so? The SJW "progressive stack" prohibits acknowledgement of non-whites raping whites. Same reason you never hear them talk about Rotherham or Rochdale.

Oh article... This is unfortunate:

...as she screamed about seeing a “bright light,” which she suspected was from a camera, police said.
...
She was right about a camera rolling as one of the boys posted the video online, police said.
...
ON A MOBILE DEVICE? WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

I know the link isn't to the video of the rape, but the placement of this looks like it is to that video. Worse yet are the all caps and bold.

Haha, I caught that as well, it reminded me of stuff like this.

It's a terrible thing to have happened to that girl, but that didn't suppress my guilty laugh at that formatting oversight.

I can't help but feel like popular news outlets are afraid of reports incidents such as these out of fear that people will accuse them of being racist. A similar thing is happening in the UK with gang rapes where are most, if not, all of alleged rapists are of Pakistani descent. I'm not sure whether it's an immigration issue or a cultural one, but the reason these rape gangs are allowed to roam so freely because the police is afraid of pursuing them out of fear of being called racist. I wouldn't surprise me to think the same thing is happening here in the US.

It's cultural, the ones that aren't Pakistani are still from a Muslim majority country. Non-Muslim immigrants simply don't go around forming rape gangs.

In my country, we get to see this first hand with Christian and Muslim Lebanese immigrants. The Christians are lovely people. The less said about Muslims the better.

If they're so afraid, why are they even afraid to mention news without mentioning race?

Dear DrBerry, you are a racist, an oppressor! How dare you defend a white girl? Go back to stormfront! It was HER fault! Obama's sons are innocent!

Seriously, I hope that she will recover (as far as possible).

"Interracial rape is almost exclusively black on white — with 14,000 assaults on white women by African Americans in 2007. Not one case of a white sexual assault on a black female was found in the FBI study.”"
