Skip to comments.Black Expo 'inescapably tied' to race violence
Posted on 06/17/2012 7:09:41 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Looking over one of the worst crimes scenes in the history of downtown Indianapolis, state trooper Rod Russell was sad.
Its just a few people who make it bad for everyone, Russell said.
But the few were thousands of blacks who roamed the streets of downtown in the aftermath of an Indianapolis Black Expo marred by fighting, vandalizing, assaulting and even shooting. Lots of shooting. Ten people were taken to local hospitals with bullet wounds.
Why did we find an AK-47 in the back of someones car, asked Frank Straub, director of public safety, about the 2010 rampage. No one knew, other than the fact the violence is a tradition at the annual event despite 300 police officers on the street to stop it.
YouTube is now part of the tradition as well: Much of the illegal behavior is captured on video.
Organizers for the Black Expo said their group was isolated from anything that had gone wrong.
But in comparison, there was another event recently that attracted hundreds of thousands of people to Indianapolis: the annual Indianapolis 500 at the citys Speedway.
On race day, state police issued 35 tickets 27 for underage drinking, two for fake identification and one each for littering, intoxication, false informing and possession of marijuana.
The criminal behavior in Indianapolis during Black Expo is part of a nationwide trend of hundreds of episodes of racial group violence in more than 50 cities over the last three years.
Before the  Expo, a lot of people in Indianapolis were complaining about the police presence, saying it was too much and it was racist, said Jake Finnegan, an Indianapolis resident. But then we saw what happened and they shut up.

I am not interested in seeing cities burning this summer. Not even Detroit.
--stupid question and stupid statement--
Vandalizing, assaulting and even shooting.
Some people have no self control,yes in all colors.
Mindless, ignorant savages.
Thanks Tolerance Sucks Rocks.
Is this down the street from the “White Expo”?
Didn’t think so.
Jungleland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wa, Wa tusi!
It’s typical w/events like that. Every year during Memorial Day weekend they have “Black Biker Weekend” in Myrtle Beach, SC. Crime is sooo bad that businesses close up that weekend. They cried racism but it’s nothing but a giant thug party. I would close my business too. When they get into large crowds like that, it’s anything but civil.
Violent crime is a black phenomenon. To say otherwise is to ignore the elephant in the room.
Black Expo 'inescapably tied' to race violence
Practice makes perfect...they will be ready to riot nationally (min. 50 cities) when SCOTUS boots the 0kakaKare!
I was curious about what a “Black Expo” is. According to the site linked above, it will be held for a week in July. It includes a business conference, an education conference, art exhibits, a car show, youth programs ... and music performances. I expect the last item has a lot to do with the violence that might occur.
An Indianapolis joke:
Why don’t we have a “white expo” here in Indy?
We do, it’s called the Brickyard 400.
(that’s the July Nascar race for those who don’t know)
Feral animals empowered by the feral government, pure and simple!
There will be no reelection without an election. If they start it, we shall end it.
There is no other word for it, but savage, absolute gang, mob mentality takes over the streets.
Descent folks go home and thugs from all around the midwest come to town to show their colors score a deal and chase "bitches & ho's".
Black Expo refuses to acknowledge this, they play they race card and blame everyone else for the fact that these savages use their event for cover.
That’s the venue to gather the feral animals. The “reason” for violence will be the SCOTUS decision to boot 0kakaKare!
Then carry on and spread nationally to force the feral government to invoke Martial Law!
Can you say, Reichstag Fire?
Maybe a result of inbreeding?.
Good luck to those of you who live in the feral urban areas. It is coming...and it isn’t going to be pleasant.

It came and want nothing gained,last moves cost alot.
It’s a “politically correct” outfit.
Any criticism must be due to racism.
It’s a typical “shakedown” outfit.
They get a lot of $$ in contributions from their “partners” in the community.
Interesting comment. I was just thinking that with Jarrett, 0bama, Ayres, Farrakhan, Rezko and who knows who else living in the same neighborhood, we actually have a gang there....and
I work in the feral urban areas and already plan to walk off the job when it gets bad enough.
How will I know? When they start shooting firefighters, as they are known to do.
Basement savers don’t go on runs, fires run out of control, and that is a huge clue that it’s gone down and is not coming back anytime soon.
I strongly urge everyone to have a plan to get out of the city ASAP when “THE EVENT” kicks off. Don’t go anywhere near a city or a store. It will be lawless, inhuman chaos.
Where and when is the White Expo?
and thus in DC....we have the Toon mafia, the 0bamids, the Russkies, ChiComs, NeoCons, Commies, IRS, etc......
Thank you for the comment.
You missed my post at 15?
Does anyone else remember “Human Kindness Day”?
LBJ’s “Great Society”
How many TRillions have FDR and LBJ’s social policies cost this nation,, and now its fruits are revealed .. daily ACROSS THE NATION.
It is reflected in the hiphop media culture and music that New Decadents claim as their own. They forget, nothing is new under the sun.. including indiscriminate and sudden demises at an EXPO.. Hate Crime Inc. Lives. and profits.
We do have a lesbian, democrat mayor and an african chief of police. IIRC, the last 5 or 6 chiefs of police have been africans. (I have decided to stop referring to them as african-Americans or black Americans as I generally do not see them sharing the values of, what I consider to be, American).
We do have problems with africans and hispanic gangs, but I don't think we will see a repeat of Indianapolis. Hopefully.
Stop asking about racial violence. It’s a black thing.
People yes - there are bad eggs in every racial group. But that's NOT what's being looked at here. Black group violence is unique. Black neighborhood violence is also unique.
Have you ever heard of a large public gathering of Asians or Jews that broke into wide scale violence? Nope. Doesn't happen. The doting court eunuchs of the MSM fail to notice... but that's their job. When two white reporters were accosted by a black mob, their own paper didn't cover the story for two weeks. Police reports ignore much black crime - makes their cities look bad.
Your type of comment vaduz - the 'everyone does it' so it doesn't matter is not only NOT true - it allows cover for the eunuchs of the MSM ...
“Organizers for the Black Expo said their group was isolated from anything that had gone wrong.”
Bullcrap. The organizers know that this is an inevitable side effect of the gatherings they host, so they are not isolated, they are enabling it.
I’d close up, board up the windows pre-emptively, and sit on the roof with a scattergun.
(I grew up there but moved out 20+ years ago.)
It’s racist to point out that often times when large groups of Amish coalesce, violent crime ensues.
You are right about that. Violence often breaks out in large groups of people, period.
I know that alot of blacks are decent, hardworking and law abiding people. My neighbors across the street are a case in point. However, I no longer believe that black people like my neighbors are the rule, but the exception. And it is the silence of the good folks in the black community towards the bad(indeed, an unspoken acceptance of the behavior)which has spawned the widespread lawlessness and lack of basic morals which we see today.
Only the black community can fix this problem. It is not a problem that whites, asians, hispanics or any other race can repair.
I am a fellow human being and my heart breaks for the black community because it has the potential to be so much more than it currently is.
Another great article from Colin Flaherty at WND. com. His book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it, is required reading for anyone who wants to see how this is happening all over the country.
More than 50 cities. Hundreds of examples. All documented. All presented with no apologies and no explanations.
Refreshing. I think I heard about it on Rush. http://WhiteGirlBleedalot.com

Must’ve. Sorry. Lets organize a “White Peoples Expo’’!
None of the groups you mention travel in gangs beating up citizens walking alone. None of the above groups vandalize stores and commit street violence... tell me why you made the comparison?
These groups hire the beating up/roughing up/intimidating of individuals, even in individuals’ own houses.
These groups vandalize companies, individuals’ taxation and other accounts.
These groups hire street violence and ignore crimes there, such as lack of permits or violence against police. These groups direct the fourth estate to stiff-arm and celebrate street violence, winking at whatever comes...even in violence such as the Arab spring.
They use asymmetrical warfare and lawfare to achieve their objectives. 0bama drops political crisis after crisis against the bulwark of US Constitutional law, finance system, and mores.
The silencing of critics is but one way to eliminate opposition. Do we really think there is no blood on their hands?
They have point people, colors, foot soldiers, regular tactics. Their weaponry is simply not carried ‘on’ their bodies.
Examples of that last in the USA?
