Breaking News...

Just heard this on CourtTV.

Some of the lacrosse players are beginning to talk, they have verified racial slurs
was used against both of the dancers in the midst of the party.

They told ESPN, that there was an explosive argument with the dancers concerning
their money, their fee and that's how things ensued.

Well, I'm sure more details of what really happened will continue to unfold.

He must've had a good lawyer to get off with community service for an assault.

The civil rights movement seems so long ago to someone my age, who was raised pretty much colorblind, but race relations in the US still need decades of work. i.e., if this were an all-Black team and the dancers were white? How the dynamics would sadly change.

Anyway, I understood the argument also involved a broomstick and that just sickens me.

Well, sadly I would have to agree with the points you made.
And, I also grew up in a color blind house.

My mother is an african american and my father, was a native american.

The hatred spewing from both sides of the fence is sickening.
My grandchildren are bi racial and I love my daughter in laws, who brought them into this world.

A lacrosse player stood in the middle of the floor with a broom in hand and yelled, "I'm going to rape them with this broom."

The dancers left, but outside of the house apologies were made & a promise
everyone would be on their best behavior, so they returned.

A pretrial hearing was held yesterday, Nifong and the Duke Lacrosse defense team appeared civil to one another.

The judge reduced the bond for Reade Seligmann, one of the lacrosse players.

The original bond was set for 400,000 and it was reduced to 100,000.

The judge ordered the cell phone records of the rape victim to be turned over to the defense.

Nifong enter over 500 pages of discovery.

None of the players were present, but the courtroom was packed.

The next court date will take place in July.
