Hello "Yeah right" & NN Thug City". There is a fishing pier on 16th right before it turns in Chesapeake Ave and it has been for as long as I can remember and a lot of different people fish and take out their boats there and there hasn't been any problems down there involving murder, selling drugs, etc. So stop knocking things just because itís downtown. Also there are a few businesses down on Jefferson near the pier and what makes you think itís only black folks that do stuff down thereÖhuh? TRUST we see when non-blacks come downtown and what they come to do and it isnít always working.

Then with you and the rest of the negative ignorant a**holes not visiting the area, the people of this area will have it's overdue right to do what it has not done since the interruption of everything by the fair city council of Newport News. Fish, crab, chat with others who visit the pier from outside the area. When you as a thug have a thug mind, you can only have thugged out thoughts. Glad NOT to meet you and your ignoramus kind.

Hey, I tried to go down there to check it out while the pier was under construction and was met with glaring stares and racist remarks, then this guy yells across the park area asking me for a dollar, wait, pretty much he was TELLING me to give him a dollar. What else am I suppose to think about this area?

Oh stop with your racist talk people. This fishing pier is very safe - I mean you do live in an urban area, so be smart. But for real, anyone can come out there and go fishing without being robbed or shot.

Who knows, maybe you might even see HG down there on a warm afternoon :)

As long as bigots exist, there will be problems between the races. Hate comes in all colors.

Sad you can't see in any other color than white.

As for me, I hate EVERYBODY that acts like a bigot or treats people without respect regardless of ethnicity.

Grow up. There is a big multi colored world out there. One day you might even enjoy it.

Hey big boy, carry your butt down to the pier and tell me what happens. I bet it won't be the rosy picture you paint. I agree with you in theory, but I am a realist.
