^Ferris has a comment in this article, if you look closely.

Which one and how do you know? There is no information on who made each comment.

I was referring more to this quote, actually:

I am increasingly frustrated with the, for lack of a better term, “pussification” of America. And that includes the crippling political correctness that has intensified under Obama.

The ROTJ collaborative thread is a wealth of ideas, both on how to edit Return of the Jedi, as well as how to collaborate in an edit.

I hope this is some of that “fake news” that everyone’s always talking about.

Nope, seems to be real.

Clearly the latter because if the former they would have used “bigly.”

I don’t get it.

Is this a hate crime?

I haven’t followed it very closely, but from what I’ve heard it is…and is being prosecuted as such?

JEDIT: Yep.

Four suspects are facing hate crime charges after an 18-year-old mentally disabled man was bound, beaten, taunted with racial slurs and forced to drink from a toilet in a video broadcast live on Facebook, prosecutors said Thursday.

Is this a hate crime?

The first news story I read on this (can’t remember the site) clearly stated in the opening paragraph that the perpetrators were black and the victim was white. I went back to the same site later that day and they’d edited it to remove the races of those involved.

I lean toward the liberal end of the spectrum and I still think this is clearly an anti-white guy crime, especially given the anti-Trump rants of the perpetrators. I don’t know what the legal requirements are for a hate crime, though — do people need to be a member of a minority or protected group in order to be victims of a hate crime, or is only the intent of expressing hate toward a particular group required? I also suspect that if this were 4 white people hammering on a black guy and screaming anti-Obama nonsense, it would be classified as a hate crime and the races of those involved would be displayed prominently in all news stories (except Fox News, maybe).

JEDIT: Frink got in right before I did.
