|Let's just take this event at face value: A Black father came after the man who hurt his daughter.

While the circumstances are obviously different, in this thread, according to the members here, there is no question the Black father should be shot (and killed) and nary a thought about his life is given, as a father or a man in general. Just look at the responses on all the pages.
At face value, it was a Father hurting someone who hurt his daughter.
But not too long ago a White father was hailed as a hero for coming to the aid of his daughter and not a single person said that the White father in that case should have tended to the needs of his harmed daughter FIRST (most likely because the attacker was non-white and this feeds into the deep-seeded need to like vicariously live through these people). That is the point here. Many in this thread are saying the Black father should have went to his daughter and many are saying that the 4 year old shouldn't have been alone.
But in the linked story. The White father clearly left his 5-year old daughter unattended - to ultimately be raped no less - and also beat the man to death with his fists, as his daughter was close by also harmed, in this case sexually. He also felt the need to attack the man who harmed his daughter FIRST.
So it goes on Covers.com. Two fathers acting out of rage when they see their young daughters harmed:
White Father: Hero
Black father: Villain and deserved to die.
Again, Captain Obvious Slovak will be on this post like flies on garbage with his first words being, "The situations were completely different!!!"
But in an emotional rage, were they for either father?
That is a question that is suppressed by members of this forum because they simply can't give the benefit of the doubt to what, as Slovak said, a man viewed as a thug (an unsubstantiated claim of the highest order and a racist label at worst).
The hell if I won't tell you about it...You will come to terms with your prejudices.
