The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Eugene Kane takes some young black youths to task following a mob episode at the Wisconsin State Fair:
"Philadelphia -- While out of town last week, I suddenly started receiving urgent long-distance messages about young black people in Milwaukee acting crazy.
Last time it happened, I was on vacation during the Fourth of July weekend when a bunch of misbehaving young black people ransacked a gas station convenience store and attacked residents in a park.
This time, I was in my hometown of Philadelphia attending the National Association of Black Journalists convention when my BlackBerry started blowing up with news about what happened Thursday night at the Wisconsin State Fair.
According to reports, it was similar to what happened in Riverwest last month, but on a much more brutal -- and scarier -- scale.
When people start reporting they were being beaten by black people for no other reason than being white people at the State Fair, that's pretty disturbing.
It's also thuggish and disgusting."

How refreshing it would be to have an open honest and truthful discussion RE race and episodes like the Wisconsin State Fair.
The actual author of the article — Eugene Kane, who is black — makes some good points. I don’t see any “racist rants” in Kane’s article. Unless, of course, Kane calling the young blacks who did this “thugs” is racist.
I have noticed a really strong form of oppression which is prevalent in today’s society and it is not just about race.
Basically, it is OK for them to do something really evil, but it is not OK for us to notice that they are doing it.
Rep. King (R-NY) should hold House Committee hearings on how Leftists mendaciously playing the race card for political advantage at every opportunity still inflames homicidal hate in the most ignorant as if the charges were true.
Overall a good OpEd
But kane just couldn’t stop himself from criticizing white people could he?
I would hope these types of attacks would spark a muzzle flash in the form of these good citizens protecting themselves from these animals....
It's not like there's nothing to criticize us for...white liberal policies have effectively destroyed the black family in much of our country.
“white liberals destroyed the black family”
BUT that is not what this guy is criticizing is it?
