Where's Kevin Bacon when you need him? When the City Council approved a ban this week on dancing and entertainment in new restaurants and bars, it got few arguments from residents.

Next thing, no more rock and roll and hippidy hopperdy music in town. Only good ol' fashion country music to raise the american spirit.

I can understand the city wanting to keep out high crime elements such as dancing African Americans, but just because they commit a disproportionate amount of crime does not make it right to keep them out. I guess if I had a family, I would think differently about allowing these people in close proximity to my home. I have researched crime in Diamond Bar, in the past 10 years there have been 6 murders and 9 rapes in the city. 7 of the 9 rapes and 4 of the 6 murders were commited by African Americans. This high crime stat for a city virtually devoid of African Americans is a factor in wanting to keep them out altogether. I can understand both sides, but couldn't African Americans just stay away voluntarily?
Yes, the prospect of dancing Negroes coming to town does make one worry about crime. Negroes really commit a lot of crime. Why do they commit so much crime? That's a question for people a lot smarter than me. That whole nature/nurture chicken/egg thing, it really does not matter why they commit so much crime when it is your family at risk, does it?

Oh man, as if DB wasn't boring enough as it is! No wonder I just drive over to Chino Hills to eat and drink; DB is a good place to live, not have fun.
