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.

The purpose?

The purpose is to prove just how racist everyone else is.

It’s where groups of black business people go to complain about whitey and shoot each other.

The Black Expo tries to get the AA community the information they need to become businessmen and entrepreneurs.

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.

I’ve been to Farm Expos, Food Expos, Science Expos, and Car Expos.

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?

One of the Indianapolis Pastors came out earlier today with support of the local police and a request for parents to get their children in control. Tried to find it again, but haven't yet.

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
Indy.

Maybe it's the only place left where you can still buy blacks.

Depends on which part of their anatomy they plan to "EXPO".

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.

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 agree. If I remember correctly the Black Expo came to Indianapolis because it was the home of Madame Walker, one of the first female millionaires.

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.
