Summer has barely started and already many cities around the country have suffered from violent mobs of mostly teenagers who beat, rob, molest or sometimes kill anyone unfortunate enough to be in their way. Virtually all of them are black youths. Whatever the reason for their actions, it is well known that they use twitter, facebook, iphone, etc. to communicate with each other to go "wildin" in some unsuspecting part of town. And this problem seems to be getting worse every time. What do you think will happen? Eventually other communities of color will retaliate, especially if it is only black youths who ruin their business as they rampage through the streets. Inter-ethnic conflict in cities is nothing new as it has happened before and continues to happen in some places. But if people get too fed up about the mindless violence from these youth mobs eventually its going to feel like a civil war in a couple more years.

It happened in South-Central LA before when a Mexican gang killed Florencia 13 started to move into black territory and intimidate the community, and then they started a war against each other and innocent people got caught in the crossfire

Pointing out such violence is racist.

It is best to ignore it and pretend it isn't happening.

Our racial communities are full of problems.

I personnally blame a mixture of hip hop culture and American culture that encourages violence, "toughness," money and revenge.

This is only part of the story. Blacks are more likely to be poor than Whites, yet poor Blacks are subject to the same meaningless, corporate manufactured burning desire and status-driven material lust that middle class Whites can actually afford. Actually, Blacks, in general, spend more money on clothes, cars and other visual identifiers of wealth than Whites regardless of class or income.

Conspicuous Consumption and Race: Who Spends More on What - Knowledge@Wharton

Your Sneakers or Your Life

Black folks in America have made rich companies out of Nike, New Era Cap company and Timberland. Black people in the ghetto have also made White guys like Ralph Lauren a whole lot richer. Black people and Hip Hop have made these White owned companies filthy rich. But these wealthy companies give nothing back to the impoverished communities that made them rich. However, Black youth are suffering the most in this unforgiving economy where upper middle class White kids who went to Harvard can't find jobs at McDonald's and have been out of work for years and older folks who worked for 20 years are automatically laid off, overqualified for new jobs and unemployable with zero retirement funds. In Chicago, approximately 90% of Black teens are unemployed. Non-coincidentally, Chicago is one of the biggest flash mob cities that has been constantly making the news.

http://jobs.aol.com/articles/2011/05...n-summer-2011/

Only a few years ago, anyone could go to a McDonald's or big box retail store and get a job that same day. Today, McDonald's is only hiring less than six percent of over a million job applicants for minimum wage positions. Before 2007, anyone with a first and last name could apply for multiple credit cards with $8,000 limits. All of that is gone today. Black kids who are used to wearing $300 Nikes and Gucci everyday don't like being penniless. Even some of the poorest Americans are very spoiled compared to Third World poverty. Yet, our government and the ultra-wealthy all powerful ruling elite are hell-bent on bringing Third World poverty to America through devaluing our currency by constantly printing millions of dollars, keeping wages flat, de-industrializing our once great manufacturing base, making higher education and healthcare unaffordable, outsourcing, illegal immigrant slave labor and globalization. If Black kids are mad that they can't buy the latest $400 Nikes, they will be burning down cities when a quarter pounder with cheese becomes unaffordable when our government can no longer afford to put everyone on foodstamps and inflation causes wages to shrivel even more.
