So many people need to stop pointing fingers and using any event to fuel ignorant hatred. Instead they should pay attention to facts, and the quest to discover truths. Yes those effected are suffering, but we are social creatures, we are there to help each other through things. Not spout endless closed minded hatred which won't solve a thing and will only lead to more suffering.

The amount of racism shown via this tragedy is just pitiful.

The tv news here, and by here I mean Massachusetts, says that they're "close to identifieing a suspect" No arrests doesn't mean they aren't questioning someone. Or it could mean they're close to identifieing someone from video or photos. Like the more cautious people here are saying, we just do not know. They're looking not to repeat what happened with that Saudi gentleman.

Well, no slavery, women able to study and work, etc.

Things change alot with the course of time;
it's just a question of when society recognizes something as an issue and wants to change it

Even then, low long did it took for these to happen? Not to mention some of these things still occurs in other parts of the world. It all depends whether people are willing to cooperate to make the change happen and you can't bet on this to happen so soon as each person has a different mindset.

Did anyone in this topic get flamed yet for saying the entire thing was a government conspiracy?

Well, let me do so nonetheless.

It was a conspiracy.

This is very sad, this Bombing has brought the worst out of some Americans. There's a good amount of Americans hoping it was a right-winger and others hoping it was a left-winger who did the attack.

MSNBC and FOXNEWS are fueling the hate! I've watched parts of both channels and MSNBC keeps saying that a right winger most likely did it and early this morning I heard one of the news reporters for FOXNEWS claim a left winger probably did it. OMG, these two channels really need to be removed from the air! They do nothing but spew lots of hatred!

Protected Speech? What a crock of shit. I don't care if he has a right to say it, he also has the right to call my mother a filthy whore and claim that Texas is a piece of shit, that doesn't mean I wouldn't fucking knock his lights out for it. As an American, I feel an emotional loss for the bombing, and I feel pissed off that this bastard is still on the loose, and to have people just openly mocking the lost lives and insulting the gravity of the situation on top of all this pisses me off. So yeah, I'm fucking offended and don't give a damn about what his right to say anything is. I can't do anything to him because he can spew shit behind a screen all day, but I have lost any and all respect for this cunt and everyone like him. I don't know what's up with people like you who think its edgy to not care or to even make light of tragedy. I don't want to be edgy, I don't want to feel apathy and/or make light of tragedy. I give a damn, and don't care how uncool it is to do so. I am mad, bro. For a very good fucking reason, it's not an irrational anger, it's perfectly rational and even if it wasn't.

You ask who cares about who makes jokes about this "shit" (nice euphemism btw)? I do, a lot, and if you can't respect that or even feel a smidgen of sensitivity because you're just too fucking edgy and cool than I feel sorry for you pal.

Lots and lots of money from the lawsuits they're deliberately trying to draw, which they will always win because of the First Amendment. They're con artists, this is what they do for a living.

... now I'm not surprised as to why the American economy's in the shitter. First, it was someone trying to sue the Sandy Hook incident school for big cash; now this? Not surprised at all.

Actually, this is a small portion of it, views won't change even if it's ignorant.

Here they are

Are they White or Arabic? Those pictures are bad quality and bad contrast. The news is acting like these are good quality pics, these are pretty sloppy quality pics and can be of anyone or even any ethnicity except black of course because they're clearly not that dark.

The backwards white cap guy looks like he is white, but I can't tell what the other guy is.

Anyone else thinks the man on the roof in the photo of the second explosion look kind of similar to either of these two? Same baseball cap....maybe same black jacket...it could be a coincidence, but it's at least worth looking into.

They aren't. The guy on the roof has on jeans and the bombs were planted only minutes before they went off.

With all due respect, is there any reason you know that for a fact? I mean, sure it's likely...but it says on the fox news article, they dropped off a backpack right? They would want time to get away from the explosion, and what better place is a roof?

The roof would make them stand out too much. Also, they couldn't leave them there for too long or they risked having them exposed.
It's logical. Plus, there are two of them and why would he take off his jacket and change pants and then try to gain access to a roof on a building and possibly reveal himself?

They're either white or maghreb, and frankly, I don't think it changes anything.

Pretty sure right winged moronic United-Statians did this.

I'm an independent voter but lean more conservative, so I take offense to that comment. Also, I do happen to agree that it's starting to look like it might have been done by a pro-gun couple of kids that wanted to prove Bombs are just as deadly. But if that is the case, you left wingers helped contribute to that since you kept complaining about guns constantly. Not saying what they did was right, because it's clearly wrong but President Obama and his followers helped contribute to people losing their minds if it was indeed someone going insane because left wingers never shut up about guns. Maybe the lefties can use their welfare checks to move to another country that have next to no guns if guns bother them that much.

The MIT officer that was shot has died. I heard it was a robbery and he ran off there, but who knows. The one bomber was walking off towards MIT in the one photo. So maybe he's hanging out around there if he's still in the area.

But it's simply not right. There are many countries in America, not just United-States of America.

Never in my life have I heard the term "United-Statians" even from South American/Central American people.

Americans obviously means from United States especially if you put "right wing" in front of it.
