"White" apartment complexes are also havens for criminals, when the majority is low income. It seems like it's more of a class factor and not a race one.

Just out of curiosity, are you as irate and vocal in your protest during the Indianapolis Irish Festival, or the Indianapolis Greek Festival? Or the Italian Street Festival?
Thank You.

This isn't even germane to a discussion about the Circle City Classic, since it's a college football game.

I know you are a LIAR...no way was the kid's "father" there. My "50 Cent" says the kid doesn't know who his father is.

I don't know why everyone is so worried about the violence at the Circle City Classic. We need to concern ourselves with the violence at the National FFA convention on the 24th of this month. Ever seen a drive by from a tractor?

As someone recently pointed out, the reason there are Black events is because we as white people did not allow Blacks to attend ours. So to let Minorities know that the event was for Black people, they inserted the title "Black" in front of the name of the event. In case you didn't see yesterday, Mexicans had participation in the parade also. I hope the racist on this forum are not people who freqent my business. I will be looking at everyone, wondering if they are the ones who feel so threatened by another race of people.

True, there were 50 arrests. There's no disputing that.

But the detail some here choose to leave out is the fact that they were arrested for curfew violations.
