Racial Profiling in the Heartland (Indianapolis will profile this year's Black Expo)
Front Page Magazine ^ | July 19, 2013 | Colin Flaherty

Eric Holder is going to hate this.

The same day the Attorney General was condemning the “underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes” that create racial strife, the City of Indianapolis was implementing the single largest case of racial profiling in the history of this country.

This Friday and Saturday night, the streets of downtown Indianapolis will be full from some of the 250,000 black people attending the annual Indiana Black Expo.

Much like George Zimmerman knew that black people were responsible for a crime wave in his town, city officials “know” the Black Expo has a ten-year history of intense and frequent violence and lawlessness.

So they are getting ready for more. That is racial profiling.

The summer of 2010 was probably the worst. After the Black Expo let out for the evening, thousands of black people hit the streets of downtown. Chaos and violence followed. At least ten people were shot. A lot more were rampaging through downtown, destroying property and creating mayhem.

A lot of it was captured on video. All just a few weeks after Al Sharpton himself appeared in Indianapolis to complain about racist police.

And it is not just the Black Expo: Downtown Indianapolis has been the site of dozens of cases of large-scale black mob violence over the last three years....

Yes, preparing for how mobs of blacks in a certain (City) area will act based on how they acted every-other year in that same place is clearly racist.

Didnt we move past that when we (USA) elected Obama?

Racist Associations like this MUST be stamped out by law ,punishments and accountability.

It is absolutely disgusting that the city would be anticipating violence simply based on the race of the conventioneers.

Three years ago, one young son-of-Obama shot nine members of a rival gang on a Downtown Indy street after an Expo event let out. He got eight years, and was out in two.

Shamus Patton was arrested AGAIN after a rambling, 12-mile high-speed chase with a couple of his crew. Two guns and ski masks were also in the car. He said he was “Job hunting”.....

“...the annual Indiana Black Expo.”

Black Expo??? Is there a “White Expo? If not, which group do you suppose better represents racist attitudes and behavior in this country?

Obama seems to grooming black people for anarchy..
in some places anarchy is a breath away... i.e. Chicago, Detroit, L.A.

There is a reason good people NEED high-capacity magazines and defense rifles.

bs Years of the same actions at certain events and expecting the same this year is not profileing, unless your an idiot....those that don’t learn from the past as doomed to repeat it......not doing proper policing has lead to repeated violence and vandalism....People don’t even use the term (profiling) in the proper tense with these issues, its based on past behavior. Let the thugs go wild and they will year after year.....

Allowing disobedience only if your black because you have a right to be angry. Let the tea party or another Caucasian conservative so called extremist group try this and the swat teams will be out in force breaking heads

Blacks commit 50% of the homicides in the United States.

Blacks are 12% of the population.

Take out black women from the statistic and 50% of the homicides in the United States are committed by the 6% of the population that is BLACK MEN.

Take out very old blacks and very young blacks and statistically half the murders in the United State are done by 4% of the population - black men.

Other forms of crime are are similar but the numbers tend to be 'massaged' to make cities look like they don't have as much crime as they do...

You're right - the corrupt ones on the left are pushing a double standard for behavior. We'll all be living in a hellhole like Detroit if we're not careful...

Why not just cancel the Black Expo and give them all a good reason to be shot when they riot for a reason? Might solve several problems.........nah, won’t happen.

Let ‘em raise all the hell they want, we’ll clean up their mess after they leave. Can’t have civil unrest now can we? Stupid bast&rds all of them.

Rather than trying to prevent crime, we shouldn’t “profile”.

Disgusting, but prudent. Race is a great deal of it, but so is the event. Extra security is warranted at biker conventions, too.

Looks like they are

“disproportionately represented”

and there is a

“disparate impact” by race...

Sounds like racism is the cause of those stats...

(I think I got the leftist/racist pretzel logic right)

Larry Elder gave the numbers out...

Also here’s some other stats from a liberal (Richard Cohen) writing for a liberal paper - the Washington Post.

The ONLY chance we have of making racial situations better is to deal with statistics honestly... the truth is that all people who have a clue should be concerned about young black men.

You’re going to love the Liar in Chiefs missive on trayvon today then. He is execusing the way many in the black community are reacting to the verdict because of their unfair treatment in the past.

If Trayvon had been 200 years old - or even 60 years old he might have a case. But Travon was 17. I doubt he experienced much of the Jim Crow laws living in Florida in 2013...

I live in Indianapolis. Several people were shot during the 2010 Expo. Here is an update on the perp: http://www.wishtv.com/dpp/news/crime/curry-black-expo-shooter-forged-work-release-docs
This year the authorities say that the extra security is a result of the Boston Marathon. True or not. It is a way of adding extra security.

A local church will have an “event” in honor of Travon tomorrow. Not sure if it is a part the the Sharpton protests.
