Not surprisingly, the mainstream media decided to ignore this story in favor of telecasting a motionless cruise ship for hours----

Why does the LA Times COVER UP the fact that this brawl is between Somali Muslim students and African-American students? Local news sources and UK media do not HIDE the long-standing tension between Somali Muslims and black Americans:

1. Not sure why we keep importing Somali Muslims not sure it's wise.
2. African American kids don't get along with anybody but remember they're the victims.

I love this comment:

In a statement posted on the school's website, district spokesperson Stan Alleyne wrote: 'South is a very diverse high school.
'It is a microcosm of the city. Students function together at a high level every day. That is the strength of this school. Our students live diversity every day.'

a school fight is bigger news than a cruise ship that has been adrift for days and needing help from several agencies to get back to the US? Really?

sorry, but its just a school fight. who cares who were involved. punish the fighters with suspension and move on.

Gee, the riots at my high school in the late 60s didn't make the national news, either!

Must have been a coverup big big.

You probably should be careful with posts like this. The truth is a bitter pill to swallow.
