  1. Love how they closed down the comments of the 500 teenager flash mob..Everyone knows it is Blacks , yet not one word about race. 90% of flash mobs, Flash beatings are by Blacks… How about a story on why Blacks always are the people destroying neighborhoods, stores, people , etc…
    When one black moves into a Hispanic or white problem…when many Blacks move in..The area becomes crime ridden and destroyed. Not once have I seen a Black movement result in a better area..Not once.
