There is no head hanging shame among black folk anymore or white folk for that matter. This upcoming generation are being raised to be a bunch of entitled, snotty young people who can't take advice from their elders.They already think they are wiser than those who have lived what they can only imagine.Manners are no longer being taught so they have no respect for themselves, much less anyone else.And as this story attests, nobody wants to hear how they are failing miserably at being parents.

At least seven cities with this racist, criminal, conspiratorial, Communist/Anarchist inspired treachery and Obama hasn't said a thing. Where is the inspiration and leadership? 40% unemployment amongst the Black youth Liberals have kept in ghettos. Good job, bleeding hearts!

For the past 45 years, the guberment has told them they don't need to take responsibility.

They only have to cash those welfare checks and vote for democrats.

the unemployment for blacks is higher because blacks are less likely to work according to the rules of the workplace. I see it all the time - we fire at least one a week, yet for them, it is NEVER their fault.
As for flash mobs - shoot first and and ask questions later.

What can you expect when women barely out of their teens are having children? They don't raise them properly because they weren't raised properly. Most of these kids are not even raised in a family environment, they don't know what a family is. The Mayor has it right, hit the pockets of the guardians, parents or whomever is in charge of these brats. Better yet, pick them up and sign their butts up for military work. Our men and women in the service are on long hauls and could use some break time. Put these brats to some real use. They want to do some damage, teach them how to care for this country via the military. Maybe then they will learn to appreciate.

The military is too good for them. Unless they are used for target practice.
