It's rare that I see this, but when I do, it fills me with SO MUCH FUCKING RAGE I WANT TO PUNCH A WALL.

The story (Gawker) about the three young Black men accused of shooting a jogger is, of course, accumulating a lovely selection of racist comments. But this one dude, in his comment promoting carrying a concealed weapon, refers to the men as a "pack of animals."

For whatever reason, shit like this infuriates me even more than more blatantly racist comments. It points to an ingrained racism whereby Black people (often men) are thought of as subhuman. It makes my skin crawl.
