Second Black on White School Bus Violence That may be Racially Related

The second black on white school bus beating that may be race related in St. Louis region has occurred in as many weeks (first Berman Post: School Bus Beating Caught on Tape). The school has refused to release the tape, but the source has a reliable tip to the races of the attackers.

Video embedded below. (from

"KMOV blog reported:

The child, Corey Branam, says he got off at a stop before his own stop, just so he could get away from the kids. They got off the bus with him and after a little more harrassment, they went their way and Corey walked home.
The Hazelwood School District has refused to release the video despite the parent's request. Two students at Hazelwood West Middle School were suspended after a beating.

  1. This kid reminds me somewhat of myself at about his age. I was small, skinny and meek. My Mom had told me- after I had told her of being bullied almost continually at school- that I had a choice. I could get up and fight back or just keep walking away.

    I did so until I was about 16 and had gained some weight and height and enough hate in my gut at being bullied that I fought back.

    Guess what? I was never bothered again.

    Do I think this was a "hate crime" No because kids at that age don't hate, they are just mean and hateful sometimes.

  2. @Papa Ray - I can not tell you if it is "hate crime" or just kids acting particularly stupidly. I am just tired of the different treatment of incidents because of the differences of race of people on the various sides (meaning race of the attacker and victim) (see Berman Post: Obama - 'I do Not Have All The Facts, But The Police Acted Stupidly').

  3. Second black on white school bus is given in the post her. Useful post
