INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Police say eight people were wounded in a burst of gunfire in downtown Indianapolis during the Indiana Black Expo and two more in separate shootings that followed.....

Chicago,IL September 29, 1971 --- Mayor Richard Daley and the Reverend Jesse Jackson (R), national director of Operation Breadbasket, clasp hands in greeting 9/29/1971 prior to the opening of the Black Expo at the International Amphitheatre. More than 500 black and minority businesses from 23 states will have exhibits on display during the exposition.
Tea parties no doubt.
Obviously a bunch of White Crackers who done sneaked in the party and done cause big trouble.
I’ve been to Farm Expos, Food Expos, Science Expos, and Car Expos.
Never been to a Black Expo. What exactly is the purpose?
Pastor at church does missionary work in China and said a large group from China are due in Indianapolis this morning as part of a civil rights group.....
Looks like someone sent out the welcoming committee.
Perhaps they thought it was a “Black Explo” ;-)
The purpose is to prove just how racist everyone else is.
Somebody call the NAACP, those racist tea party crackers are at it again.
yip sounds like cracker tea partiers posing as al jolson that’s the ticket
To trade saggy pants & big gold chains
It’s where groups of black business people go to complain about whitey and shoot each other.
Unfortunately the black gangs have tried taking over the city and the black on black crime rate has increased greatly the past few years.
Most reverends will occasionally talk about their faith.
All jesse does is incite racism and commit adultery.
Let's see, those are for selling farms, food, science, and cars...
Good point. Didn't they use to hold these in the Ivory Coast?
I will meet that with seven shot at party and two dead. Stockton Ca.
A Black Expo everyday in Oakland CA
obama - empowering blacks to misbehave since 2008...
I even went to a women’s expo a couple of years ago during a date. Wasn’t much for me there but the date enjoyed it.
I used to drive the Trailways coach to Indy. The bus station
and the hotel I stayed at were ground zero during the Black
Expo. I never felt a bit of hostility toward me. The first
time I was going to my room and was with a large group of
black women on the elevator. I asked them what was going on and they said “Black Expo”. I said “no wonder I didn’t get
and invitation”. They thought that was hilarious. As far as
the shootings, that’s probably about normal for that part of
Maybe it's the only place left where you can still buy blacks.
Some Amish youts crashed the expo and screwed it up for all the brothas and sistas who were just trying to be entrepreneurs....
Are the new models out already? I remember when September was when new models were rolled out.
Depends on which part of their anatomy they plan to "EXPO".
Fantastic, they never fail to meet my expectations.
How do we know this isn't a typical day in Indy.
Welcome to Indianapolis
Because it isn't.
What — you’ve never been to one those “White Expos”?
I hate the fact that you have to register at the Record now. South Stockton is such a crime infested area I don’t see how anyone could live there! But then again, Stockton has become just a crime infested place period! Dirty, nasty, ugly place for a long time now.
I grew up in Indy as a child...yes..right downtown. Our Black Christian community is fantastic. If it wasn't for them, we probably would be as bad as Chicago. These shooters where out of the ordinary..likely on drugs or from out of town.
The Black Expo is all about the business community and encouraging participation in a real working way. What's to dislike?
People from out-of-state just need to shut their ignorant pie holes.
Whoa, those are some snappy threads, bro!
(what in the heck is that medal around his neck??)
Yes, but apparently the software is having attitudinal problems.
It’s not the race...it’s that the culture is broken. The Great Society did what the Klan could never do: It destroyed the inner city black family culture.
I used to live in Indy.....these things never happen when the FFA is in town.......
She made money by producing cosmetics for AA women and brought many of them up the ladder with her. (I met a friend of her grand daughter at a conference in Indy and accompanied her through the museum. Our guide started doing the jive talking garbage and boy did she put him in his place)
IMO:It would be a conservative pro- independent small business group, encouraging the Black entrepreneurs to build a better life for themselves and their families.
The way I look at it the punks on the street a just trying to keep em in the ghetto instead of prospering. It is a true battle between liberal thug Chicago style philosophy and good Christian hardworking American conservatives.
Indy’s well on the way to becoming the next detroit. This is a racial issue, even if that’s not a PC thing to say. These things NEVER happen at the Indy 500, boat sport and travel show, Nascar races here, etc. Indianapolis loves to elect race baiting scum like andre carson, etc. Now we can never get rid of black expo.
Black Expo! This year’s Summer Celebration events have included a church service, Multiple shootings, film festival,Explosions, business seminars, drug charges, career workshops,confiscation of assault rifle, concerts, circus performances and terror in the streets.
I don’t recommend any decent people being downtown during this racist festival. You WILL be harassed, you WILL be harangued and it’s nowhere to bring your family. Sick, sad and disgusting. I’d even wait a couple days until the “expo” is over, so they can clean up the endless tons of trash left behind by our delightful revelers.
