How many Black try to kill federal agents?
Let's be more intellectual instead of always trailingbehind. We are not in the 17th century anymore.

See the chart on this list of school shootings . How many shooters were Black?
List of school shootings in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As I said before, school shootings are a one shot (no pun intended) deal. You don't have to stay away from school because it is unlikely there will ever be a shooting there again. Shootings, however, and other forms of violence are fairly common and regularly occuring at dead and dying malls. Not everyday, but frequently enough that people say why bother going there?

That's what happened to your beloved downtown CBD's. People felt unsafe and they wanted the security of an enclosed mall. Now people feel unsafe in some of those malls and they go to places where they do feel safe.

Just head on over into meth territory and you'll no doubt find a few.

It is rather more about business owners minimizing cost and maximizing profit. E-business killed many malls.

Wrong. Those people don't take their squabbles into a mall. They generally take care of business in their own neighborhoods. But you are partially correct, in that if they did take their squabbles into malls then they would also be responsible for that mall's decline.

It's not color, it's bad behavior. But when it comes to dead malls, decidedly one color is responsible.

Incorrect. Malls specialize in soft goods and clothing and few people buy those things online.
