Let me re post this video.

And they just wanted to beat up a random black guy for fun

Please stop with your bigotry.
I can relate because I am Black I was frequently bullied by many White kids. I was even shot with a paintball gun by one kid. I rarely ever informed the proper authorities about it because I labored under this paradigm: "The burden of proof is on YOU. If you snitch, if you tell the teachers, principal or police about some kids throwing rocks at you, shooting you with a paintball gun, or punching you in a classroom, you better have proof".

That being said, anyone who commits a hate crime, Black, White, Hispanic, whoever it is, needs to be punished and sent to prison. No exceptions. I say take the criminals in those flash mobs to prison.

There are African-Americans who condemn this behavior. The mayor of Philadelphia, an African-American male, condemned it. Bill Cosby has frequently called out African-Americans, telling them they need to do better. That said, there are still people who won't listen. Al Sharpton gets more attention.

Perhaps the police are investigating a peaceful mob attack?

That being said, how do you think many African-Americans got out of that ugly mentality and went on to strive for better things? I ask this because for the African-Americans who have internalized the slave mentality, there are many who have left it behind and went on to do better things.

I would also argue some of the mentality is rooted in the hip-hop culture, which was turning bad in the 1980s.
African immigrants are used to brutal warlords and machete attacks and crippling corruption. What we call hard work and ambition they call easy street compared to what they have endured.

Put some of our blacks (or some of our whites, or some of our Latinos for that matter) in the Congo for a couple of years and I bet they would be clawing to get back and work their a$$es off!

Some Black Americans are rooted in stronger family structures for several generations that would account for some of the success.

I agree hip hop is a regressive culture but it could only be born out of a culture born of the plantation. What other group degrades their own women and sings about killing each other?

Very few Africans in the USA come from the Congo. Poor analogy. All of Africa is not like the Congo.

Who said all of Africa was like the Congo?

I would imagine a physicist in Accra or a paralegal in Nairobi would not be the poor people desperately fleeing the violence of Rwanda in the 90s or Côte d'Ivoire in the early 2000s.

A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.[2][3][4] Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails
This was just a mob. Not a "Flash Mob".
