    Yep, BYOB, but the beer keg and the eats are provided by the host. That's why we take turns...$$

    If race riots do happen, they will be from the growing number of butthurt white supremacists, not the disenfranchised people of color.

    Which segment of the population was "outraged" over recent court decisions?

    A riot of white supremacists would barely equal a fist fight in numbers. The disenfranchised people of color sure seem to like to destroy and steal stuff with no real point to it other than they can use it as an excuse, so I would say their disenfranchisement typically isn't at the top of the agenda in the last few decades.

    No

    It's not the color who divide the people, especially in criminality.

    I think that the most likely scenario for mass rioting in the US would be due to US economic trouble and the cuts to social programs that follow. While the riots that may happen wont be a racial riot per say it will likely consist of mainly minorities who more heavily rely on these social services.

    This comment is racist. And no, mine was not.

    That last B in BYOB meant booze in this case, but you have introduced an interesting new concept here... :

    Everyone has a deck, and it is a small neighborhood....Outdoor living at its best!

    Good evening, AP.
