<quoted text>On a couple of occasions I observed that the employees were Afro-Americans. That does not fit the profile for a a local coffee shop. Local coffee shops are run by white woman who often don't shave in all of the necessary areas which is a whole other conversation. It lends itself to tree huggers.

So a coffee shop has black employees and your assumption is that it must be a front for drug dealing or prostitution?
And you're not embarrassed to actually come right out and say so in public?
Stunning.
If he wasnt embarrassed, he would post his real name, Brilliant. Many negative things can be posted when you do so anonymously...

The irony is that though Buffalo Bill's assessment's were indeed based from racial profiling he was not wrong in this particular instance. I live next door to Traci's and was one of the folks who called police the most on them for disturbances some times up to five times a night on fridays and especially saturday when they would be holding their "private parties", and can atest to personally witessing drug transactions and other illigal opperations. Heck if one walks down the side of the building they will see the boarded up section of the wall were one of their patrons drove their car through it. They also had many brawls out front and one guy I think was pulled out of there with stab wounds once. While all this was going on I do find it amazing that all they got busted for was vodka jello shots. I'm not complaining though Traci's is now officially closed and shows no hint of ever reopening it's doors and my weekend's are much quieter now. The funny thing is that my initial complaint's about was only about their loud music at 3:00 am. mind you it was loud enough to nock items from my wall's and wake my entire house hold.

In closing this I must say that I don't agree with racial profiling and that Bill simply got lucky with his guess as to the nature of the place. when they first opened I was thrilled at the prospect of a coffee shop next door to me. And to bill you need to visit some more coffee shops like the one on the square that is run not by unshaven women but some rather burly looking guys or perhaps the coffee shop in Bradford pa run by a very pleasant couple who are as normal as can be. You don't need to be a tree hugger or as many tree huggers prefer to be called "new ager" which covers a wide spectrum many of whom are actually quite cleanly and do in deed shave their bodies to run one. please stop profiling, you'll be wrong more than you are right.
I know because many people do this to me, get totally blown away when they actually talk to me in person.

Name me another coffee shop in the community featuring drug deals, alcohol sales, thug parties at 3:00 AM, fights, and stabbings.

This was a front for drugs, thugs, and crime.

These days everyone wants to be politically correct and present things as rosey red as possible, but I think we would all be better off if we just identified that coffee shop for exactly what it was and that is a crack house. That's all it was. Just like Dakota's "Steakhouse" was a crack club/bar. For anyone who wants to draw conclusions and similarities between the two be my guest. It is what it is folks. Liberal terrorists can prance about like ninnies about issues like racism and profiling and that's their right. The rest of us have the responsibility of facing reality and cleaning up the garbage.

Just a few days ago in Jacksonville,Florida there was a "flash mob" that went into Wal-Mart and trashed the place and terrorized other customers.

When I first read it, I thought, I bet they were black. I had no clue because there was only an artictle about it.

Well a few days later on the national news they had a video of it. And guess what? I was right. All I saw were black people running amuck and destroying property.

That's not racism, that's fact.

I have always been sympathetic to the black race. I felt slavery was wrong and the treatment of blacks in the 60's was wrong.

I don't know what happened. Blacks started becoming violent, lazy, impregnating women and abandoning them. They became disgraceful and shameless.

You go right ahead and call my remarks racist, I DON'T CARE because you know I am right!

Non,je ne regrette rien- you aren't angry because I might be racist, you are angry because I am right.

If anyone dislikes black people, well guess what? They bring it on themselves with this kind of behavior, violence, and disrespect of someone elses property!

I know what you mean. Yesterday When I first heard a report of a mass murder in a Colorado theater, automatically I thought; there goes another white guy with his guns. I didn't see the killer, just heard the report, and guess what? I was right. Don't ya love it when your prejudices are reinforced.
