But I ask why the first poster is making this a black vs. white issue and what this has to do with Don Imus?

First of all, they assume that there are no similarly violent crimes committed against blacks that don't make national news. That is patently incorrect. They would also make it seem that because this particular incident didn't gain national attention, no incidents involving white victims do--again, patently incorrect. What kind of investigation would you like the ACLU to call for? It appears that all of the people involved have been arrested and are going to face trial. What does or doesn't get national media attention is based almost completely on three factors: 1. The ability to sell, draw viewers, etc...which is in large part based on celebrity or at least something that people are familiar with (like Duke University), 2. Other stories of the day. On a slow news day almost anything can become a big national story, and 3. The news cycle.
