You don't see white people acting like these unruly knuckle draggers. They just can't seem to be able to cope with society. If it's free, thats the kind of element your going to attract.

Knuckle Draggers...LOL!! Surprised there weren't shots fired followed by two deaths followed by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson calling for the heads of the people who would do something as outrageous as put on a free concert.

It is just the typical up and coming generation. This is how they behave, they are not taught any other way. Heaven help us. If the parents would start to teach their children to respect others, it probably could have been a peaceful great concert....Im not judging, Im just saying.

Expecting 100000 and 20000 showed up? I think the AP has a math issue here.
