Was this black on black or black on white-Hispanic?

The women deserved it. It was only a 16-year old child that asked them to leave. And when they didn’t, the young boy was afraid and I guess the “flee or fight” thing kicked in. The photo shows the woman wearing a red cap. I imagine that the young child figured she was a “Blood” and was there to kill him.

It’s sad that these young children have to be in such fear of their lives even in a Burger King.

“Pearson said the altercation started when a female accused her of “looking at her.” That female went outside but returned with a group of about 15 males and 5 females.”

They didn’t like the new ad with Mary J. Blige, i suppose.

This doesn’t fit Al Sharpton’s business model, does it?

The article doesn't say, that is usually indicative; however:

"I see the news, I see what's going on. I never thought it would be my daughter to experience this," she said. "How did this happen, what if they would've died?"

"These kids are killing kids. They're reckless," Rochetta Tyler said. Tyler, who lives in the area, said her children should be able to go to the restaurant without getting beaten. "It looks beautiful but looks can be deceiving," she said.

Yep. You can’t get more aggressive than ‘looking’ at someone. Anyone who ‘looks’ at someone deserves to have that someone get 20 friends to help stomp ‘em! < / sarcasm >

Kind of similar to the 6 dudes who attacked the 78-year old man, huh? Golden ratio?

What in the heck does this mean? What is beautiful, the restaurant? The evening?

It's going to get darned bad. And not one peep from Obama or Holder, trying to calm this situation. Martial law can't be too far off.

The lady has a good point. Perhaps Sharpton and Jackson could calm things down (oh wait, that's NOT what they do).

When the Burger King closes because of "kids killing kids" or the nefarious flash mobs of young African-Americans, for sure the problem will go away (sarcasm).

Years ago I learned (from a master), how to use a cane for defense. Back then I thought it somewhat silly, after all, I was young and didn’t need a cane. Years later, at the wonderful age of 65, I now carry a cane, even though I don’t need one (yet) ... just to protect myself.

Geez....Remember when the kids were little and one would be upset because the other was looking at them but this is ridiculous.

A victim said one of the female attackers weighed “at least 200 pounds.” Where's Michelle? Chatham is her old South Side neighborhood. Sounds like there are candidates for her “Let's Move/eat you veggies” program right on her old doorstep.

They probably ordered “fried chicken”, the racists.

Racists need to be put down hard, even black ones /sarc.

Consider what was said by the one who took exception to being LA (looked at) then take it from there. I believe it is also the name of a band.

I have no idea about what band you're talking about.

Now write out what your acronym means, and quit playing games. I'm too old for this crap.

“Pearson said the altercation started when a female accused her of “looking at her.” That female went outside but returned with a group of about 15 males and 5 females.” Yep. You can’t get more aggressive than ‘looking’ at someone.

certain groups are all about 'respect' - you see, these group members think everyone has telepathy, and so should instantly know that the person being looked at is a self-agrandized wannabebigshot, and people shouldn't look more than a few glancing seconds at self-appointed bigshots - it's not 'respectful'. And if you're not respectful, the prison and street punishment is a beat-down to 'teach respect'. Such is the mindset pimped by so-called black leaders and 'community activists' on the left.
