The alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl by at least 18 boys and young men has sparked shame and outrage in a tiny Texas town, but it has also stirred racial tensions that threaten to split the town.

All of the defendants arrested are African-American and the girl is Hispanic.

The suspects range in age from 14 to 26, include stars on the high school's basketball team as well as the son of a school board member.

  1. When are Black kids going to learn to make better choices? Instead of people focusing on race they need to be focusing on the issue as to why 18 males, all capable of knowing right from wrong, would even rape an 11 year old girl? That is just disgusting and makes me sick to my stomach. I honestly don't care what race they are. They deserve to have justice served on them for what they did.

    America as a whole has got to do better.

  2. "Instead of people focusing on race they need to be focusing on the issue as to why 18 males, all capable of knowing right from wrong, would even rape an 11 year old girl?"

    This reminds me of the saying by Maya Angelou: ""When you KNOW better, you DO better."

    Sadly, I'm not sure ANY of those who are truly *Guilty* of the crime against that child KNOWS right from wrong(?)

    Those who are *guilty* behaved as no less than animals. And as a Black American female it grieves (and ANGERS) me to no end that their supporters displayed a similar animalistc nature by attacking the child AGAIN, trying to make her responsible for her own gang-rape!?!

    How does ANYONE of sound mind, reasonable intelligence AND being *Human* defend such a heinous act against anyone let alone a child?!

    Those who are *guilty* are products of their upbringing and environment. Their parents FAILED them BIG TIME. Now those guys are clealry NOT fit to live in society. Lock them up for good and throw away the key!

    But I also believe the little girl's parents FAILED her too. She was assaulted multiple times. Where were her parents?
