The yoots went to the symphony in style. After a discussion about Van Gogh paintings and classical music, they decided to visit the local library but saw that it was closed due to budget cuts. The warm weather got the better of them. And now they are being framed for society's error. /sarc.

More evidence has surfaced: There's a new show based on Cash Cab called Cash Limo. And the yoots in the limo asked someone on the street for assistance to a baffling question. The people on the street said something offensive. And the yoots reacted. :-)

ROTFLMAO!

Although the limo was white I would have bet money the assailants weren’t. Since the picture was right at the top I didn’t even have to read it.

They (press) have finally gone to far.

If it were a Black Stretch Limo, would the (so called) reporters have mentioned the cars race?

Nice that someone with the attackers RECORDED it. That is very helpful for their prosecution. Idiots.

An attempt through sarcasm to play the role of the defense.

“Where do you get yoots”

A couple of years ago for a couple of months, Big Media dutifully reported a daily total of cars burned each night in France by “youths”, rather than report that the instigators were black and/or muslims.

I wonder what Obama’s limousine crew do for a living?

I wonder why I knew they would be feral Blacks.

I might have missed it, but was the victim also Black?

I'd bet dollars to doughnut holes the victims were white, so this could not possibly be a hate crime.

Is that Obama’s son? It looks like it could be him.

I didn’t see any mention of that but there’s video (yet unreleased I assume) of the assault.

Didn’t know that you could use an EBT card to rent a limo.

This would not of happened in Lakeview Texas

There are at least two Lakeviews in Texas. One with a population of about 100 good 'ol boys and the other with a population of about 4 armadillos. Both are in farming communities and those boys like to hunt so no, it wouldn't happen in TX.

Neither the police nor the media gave racial info on the victims and the police will not give a possible motive for the attack.

If this remains the same, we can draw a conclusion from past experience and the US Census data of the area where the 1:30 AM mob attack occurred.

Using the zipcode returned by the top Bing Mapping of Clark Street and Cornelia Avenue, in Chicago, in the US Racial Census data interactive link results in the below Census map:

Can't see any blue dots in the area of the attack on the Census map!

Going to the Census link above, and pointing to any area of the map shows detailed racial information for small areas (tracts) of the map. The racial data for the four Census tracts (616, 617, 621 & 622) enclosed by W Addison on the north, W Belmont on the south, N Halsted on the east & N Racine on the west are as follows:

   White  Black   Hispanic  Asian
   76%	  0%	  21%	     1%	
   77%	  0%	  11%	    11%
   77%	  0%	   8%	    12%
   82%	  2%	   7%	     5%
Looks like we will not be hearing about this attack from Sharpton, Jackson, Holder and company.

The assailants were not from the Lakeview neighborhood--that's just where the attack occurred. They were from the Lawndale neighborhood. Different part of town, different demographics.

Also, if you check the article (with photos), you can see the race of the mobsters.

The shocking thing here, of course, is that these four young men were turning their lives around and were such positive role models for the community:

Nichols said her son was trying to overcome his troubled past to become a role model and mentor in his Lawndale community. "For this to happen, it starts (the trouble) all over again. It's very disheartening."

"My son was making great strides in his career," she said.

Nichols said there were many men involved in the fight. But the four West Side men are the only ones facing severe charges.

"It was just a brawl," she said. "But they were the only ones arrested. It's so unfair.

"These young men were trying to make a change in their lives. They had difficulties in their pasts. This situation is unbelievable. They did not go out there for this particular incident to happen. They were there doing something positive for themselves."

Pat Herred, a longtime neighbor and friend to the four, said the men had been working recently to improve the community. Edward Robinson was working with the Lawndale Christian Legal Center counseling other young men.

"They were promoting positivity in the neighborhood," she said. "They have been working hard to get their lives back on track. We've had a lot of episodes with our Lawndale youth. These men were working hard to do the right thing."

From the very beginning, the Police released and the media published photos of the arrested attackers. We all knew they were Black. My post began with "Neither the police nor the media gave racial info on the victims."

Reread my post with that in mind. Now I can add from another article nbcchicago.com the following recent development:

"Police said there was no indication this was a racially motivated attack, but detectives said they are looking into all possibilities."
This confirms the conclusions of my post that the demographics of the area of this Black mob attack was not Black and it was unlikely that the victims of this attack were Black. And that the attack was another Black on White/Asian/"White-Hispanic" race attack.
