    While I can understand why the black kids may be angry at white folks? Racism is wrong in anyway and so is violent acts

    As an interesting aside, did you know that "White Privilege" is an anagram for "Revile White Pig"?

    And yes, in fact I am on an anagram kick lately. I find there's so much truth in anagrams.

There's no proof of this, just one anonymous person reporting that they heard the chant, "It's Beat Whitey Night". Even the police don't know whether there was any racial motivation, yet we've got half-a-dozen DP posters assuming it was racially motivated.

    That says a lot, right there.
    The term "Whitey" is a negative desparaging remark used by blacks to offend whites. As such, I would say the intent is clear.

    My point was that the alleged phrase, "It's beat whitey night" may or may not have been heard. The person claiming such wasn't identitfied and the police aren't sure that it was used.

    Even if it was used by one of the kids, that doesn't necessarily explain the motivation of all 40 people involved in the disturbance. The motivation of those who are clearly so determined that there was a racial motivation for the disturbance, is also a bit of a mystery.

    What do they have to be angry about that you learned in the article?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Unless the offender is white, of course. Your attitude is what fans the flames. As long as anti-white racism is excuse, or ignored, even justified, white on ,"whoever", will be alive and well. The folks who claim to hate racism the most, are the ones that do the most to keep it alive and help grow stronger.

    Thank you, Kali, for proving my point:

    They are always in some crappy location and when you get that many happy, mindless people (mostly teens) wandering around you have theft (pickpocketing, etc) and violence. . . everyone's carrying cash because it's a fair - so everyone get's some type of hassle.

    I would *never* take my kids or let my kids go to something like that . . . and I certain won't change my mind, now . . .race-issues or not - they've NEVER been safe.

    On Jan 1, of 2011, Iowa will become a "shall-issue" concealed carry state. Give a few months for classes, applications and processing, and beating up a random stranger will be a dangerous sport.

    I said Racism is wrong. I can and do understand why some black folks may have anger towards whites. Of course I am one that understands and does not forget about History. That is just me though
