View Full Version : Questions Arise Over Whether 'Flash Mob' Attacks in U.S. Cities Motivated by Race

Police departments in several cities around the country are investigating what appear to be incidents of "flash mob"-generated violence, in which packs of dozens or even hundreds of youths appear seemingly out of nowhere to commit assaults, robberies and other crimes against innocent bystanders.

The motive and circumstances surrounding the attacks that have resulted in numerous arrests around the country are being investigated -- and law enforcement officials in at least one city are looking into a possible racial component to the crimes.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who recently imposed a stricter curfew in response to the city's latest attack, addressed black youths directly from the pulpit of his church on Sunday, reportedly saying, “You have damaged your own race.”

"If you want …anybody else to respect you and not be afraid when they see you walking down the street, then leave the innocent people who are walking down the street minding their own damn business. Leave them alone," Nutter told a mostly black congregation at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Nutter, the city's third black mayor, spoke after a mob attack July 29 in downtown Philadelphia during which 20 to 30 black youths allegedly beat and robbed innocent bystanders, according to law enforcement. Several people were injured, including one man who was reportedly hospitalized for a fractured skull, and police arrested four people.

It's also a class issue, and class and race have always been integrally tied together in the US.

The recent report that showed that the median wealth of whites was 20 times that of blacks and nearly that of hispanics highlights the tight congruity between race and class in America.

To ignore the social/economic context within which these events occur is to totally misperceive the situation.

That report that showed the average black persons wealth was only like $6,000 was full of so much shit, it's still looking for a landfill to handle it.

They'd have to count everyone in Africa to get numbers like that.

You can tie yourself to any class you like depending on how much effort you wish to exert.
Of course you are changing that as fast as you can.

Are you saying that you approve of their behavior and disregard the rights of the victims because it suits your political ideology? That's outright disgusting.



The recent report


Liberalese for "I'm going to lie my ass off now, but don't call me on it, ok?" See: "Many studies have shown..."



that showed that the median wealth of whites was 20 times that of blacks and nearly that of hispanics highlights the tight congruity between race and class in America.


Can you explain the use of median versus the use of average in your fictional report?

If the income of a given group of 5 people is:

$1 $20 $100 $100 $100

Then the median is $20 while the average is $64. The average better describes the overall income of this group (more than half of the group make 5 times the median), while the median would clearly be used to warp the statistics to describe the authors intended viewpoint.



To ignore the social/economic context within which these events occur is to totally misperceive the situation.

To listen to a Marxist try to 'explain' the situation is to listen to a distorted, ideologically motivated persuasion piece.
