Ever been to Puy-In-Bay for Christmas in July? It's not just minorities capable of group stupidity when in large numbers.
Then there's Chicago, every weekend:

Your argument is self defeating. Those celebrations weren't shut down and don't end in gun play by a self destructive culture of violence, gangster rap music, prison, drug abuse, obesity and cultural nihilism.

We used to go to the Conservatory regularly, but not so the past few years because the area has seen more violent crimes. The black celebration's shootings & fight prove this.

Again, just don't think it's the minorities capable of group stupidity when in large numbers. They may not shut it down but the behavior's not much different.

Agree.

These same thugs played a role in getting the downtown city center mall shut down and are a problem where there is a bus route.

At the same time, American Ghetto Blacks are yelling about jobs, jobs, jobs.

Hispanics will replace them and rule over them.

Why is it that none of you claim the "downfall of America" when it's a white person who goes into a school and shoots up innocent children....or a white person that breaks into a movie theater shooting up innnocent people, or white person who blows up Oklahoma government building, killing innocent people....no, you're only angry when it's a black person who's accused of something....this shows your inherent racism...and that hatred from your side will never change, unfortunately....

Black-on-black crime is an issue that our black leaders are trying to address and unfortunately we need partnership with local law enforcement to enact change, but that won't happen, because ultimately you don't care that black people are shooting each other up....you really don't care about addressing the situation, but you'll certainly use the situation to support your cracka ideals....

PATHETIC!

WE DO CARE, WTF do you want a family to do at a function that's family and historically oriented??? Pat down every low life little punk gangster to make sure there's no guns? The cops are not doing their jobs, and I'm tired of you nasty bigots placing the blame on regular hard working Blacks who have nothing to do with criminal behavior ...period!

2nd amendment be damned in poor high crime communities until every little hardheaded thug understands it is war on their asses, and if they are caught with a gun it's going to be three years in prison, if they use the gun 25 f'ing years, 50+ if someone dies.

Another thing, if the adults could beat their asses without having to go to jail, lose their homes and families, 99% of this stupid shit would end.

Stop voting Democrat and stop supporting schools run by people who think like Reader. Take control of your situation. And then when the pansy ass libs like Reader tell you you're wrong, call THEM racists and treat them like you've treated us for 40 years.
A-hole like Coleman, Beatty, Gene Harris and the like are your worst enemies. They USE you for votes and then do nothing but enable the crap that plagues black America.

You little pansy, you don't have the balls to confront your own school board. What a windbag!

346 days, wee man.
If you had kids, you'd have a clue.
And who is going to retaliate against a black kid in a Columbus school? NOBODY.

Oh, so now you're in love with Hispanics! And please STFU about the City Center Mall. The people crying the loudest never patronized the mall to begin with. First of all, a few anchor stores pulled out long before any gang violence. This is not a high fashion city and obviously sales were sluggish, or Jacobson's and Marshall Fields wouldn't have exited. Also, recall that we were mall happy around here, building Tuttle, Polaris and Easton shortly after City Center.....like the yahoos here in Cowtown were really going to support all these malls. Thugs and gangs are an easy target since there WAS violence there, but please explain the the reasoning behind Worthington Square and Kingsdale's decline in patronage and store closures.

I am speaking of the well-known reputation of urban blacks to be uncooperative with police inquiries -- either from fear of thugs, or hatred of "the [white] man."

Blah blah stain-be-saying blah. We whites see that none of our children shoot up Fourth of July. No, we see that you sh^tstains do. So go ahead and blah blah stain-be-saying blah. We'll keep the truth simple: you animals can't be trusted not to shoot the place up...among other basic decencies either. But hey now! "Vote for obama cuz he be blackenshit."

Another stereotype run amock. That stuff happens in neighborhoods were gangs pay the crooked cops for info, names, addresses, cellphone #. That's why most blacks remain ANONYMOUS when they call about neighborhood thuggery. People fear more for their innocent children than themselves.

Economic downturn then. Now? Whites revitalizing both places. You sh^tstains have been trying to polish the vermin on the near Beast side for how many decades? Both places you cite have customers. The Beast side? Offenders and parasites. Say, you working any of that black magic on Detroit or Camden, NJ?
