And if the driver had been white they would have rushed to make another riot as an excuse to do more violence and destruction.

#7 Comment By What kind of comment is that? On July 30, 2010 @ 12:48 am

Why didn’t he just say ‘thank you’? Why does he say “helped regardless of race”? As if Jews usually don’t help regardless of anything. On the whole, Jews ALWAYS help when they can ‘regardless of race’ and even to our detriment. I think its pretty well known that such serious ‘race issues’ here don’t come from the JEWS side.

TO BG,
He must have had one, because I walked by after the accident. His shoes, helmet, parts of the motorcycle… was all over on the street! It was a bad accident!

Finally someone talking sense!!!

#14 Comment By A driver On July 30, 2010 @ 5:43 pm

A general comments since I don’t know the circumstances of this accident: Bicyclists are supposed to obey rules of the road but they don’t, and they don’t stay in bike lanes. There should be licenses and ID required for biking in the streets and yes, tickets — maybe then these road=hogging cyclists will watch out for their own skins. And removing miles and miles of car lanes is insane.

#16 Comment By what-s he thinking? On July 30, 2010 @ 6:23 am

Who does he think we are by saying “regardless of race” is he saying that a Jewish EMT wouldn’t help someone of a different race? Insulting.
