Miami Beach gears up for Urban Beach Week
WPLG-TV ^ | 5/22/14 | Ben Kennedy

Barricades were put up along South Beach Thursday, as the city of Miami Beach gets ready to host Urban Beach Week.

Kiarra Wells and her three friends flew down from Detroit for the annual extravaganza, and Wells said she's just happy to hit warmer weather.

No honour for those who fought and died for freedom--not in Miami Beach this Memorial Day weekend.

Instead, every May the citizens of Miami Beach have to lock their doors and guard their homes.

Stay away from Miami Beach on Memorial Day. Unless you are going there to tell people about Jesus.

"We're a tourist destination," said Miami Beach police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez. "We have to make sure we disrupt residents as least as possible..."

It's certainly not a destination for grammarians.

We used to have a black fraternity week in one of the towns at the Jersey Shore; it was such a mess I don’t even know if they hold it anymore. I recall they were looking for a new loction to trash, and didn’t like the idea of Asbury Park (where college gibsmedats would be beset upon by non-college gibsmedats).

is the official name of the event Urban Beach Week? I thought liberals have said that the word “urban” is one of those racist code words?? Or is it ok to use if liberals or blacks use it???

They held it in Virginia Beach for a while. (90s? It was after we moved). I think it eventually got moved on from there, too. My friend’s mother was Mayor for a long time, and *my* mother would call when she was on CNN over something: “partying” disorder, hurricane, or shark attack.

Unless the area covered by Urban Beach Week is under a city block, 600 police won’t be nearly enough.

It was back in Virginia Beach a few weeks ago. This time, they were prepared. ~Lots of police, traffic rerouted into the resort area and everyone on notice.

It was uneventful and very quiet after last year's stabbings, fights and general bad behavior.

I was at the VB Court House several years ago on business when the “students,” lined up and shackled, were brought into the building. Most were 40’s or older, very rough and obviously not college students. One of the police horses was killed that year by these “not students” and the hotels were trashed.

LOL!
I venture to North Beach every summer for a week of R&R. It’s almost like a foreign country down there for sure.

I speak Spanish, so I’m not bothered by it much—but my Cuban wife who grew up there was very disturbed by how “South American” it was looking last year when we went.

I have no idea why Miami doesn’t shut down this violent urbanfest—they’ve talked about it for years, but yet it keeps going.

Where are all those Military Armored Vehicles that PD’s have been acquiring? If they need to use them for anything, it’d be for these types of gatherings.

They are saving them for use against us, My FRiend. Those pose no threat to them, i.e. their power. We, as men and women of good character, principles, and good morals, do. So, they are saving the heavy artillery for use against us because they live off the fat of our labor and live quite well. Once we decide we are retuning to the governing principles set forth in the Constitution, they have lost their grave train.

Last year, the gathering was promoted on social media and the promoters didn’t bother to inform the city. By the time the crowds showed up, the place was overwhelmed.

This year, the city actively scoured social media and tried to contact the promoters. From what I understand, the promoters never returned requests from the city for information about the event, but VB planned for an influx anyway.

Good thing they did.

So is this the same as black spring break or is it another opportunity for inner city black yutes to trash and loot a vacation destination?

We visited the Virginia Beach area about 4 years ago. There is an absolutely beautiful state park there that is on the Chesapeake Bay. Our caravan consisted of 3 couples in 3 campers.

On Saturday evening, we ventured into the city of Virginia Beach. Apparently there was some sort of cheerleading competition going on. The husband and I, along with one of the other couples, rented a 4-person vehicle that works like a bike, and there are lanes that run parallel to the boardwalk that one is expected to use with such vehicle.

We learned early on that the thing does not have brakes. As we were approaching a crowd of rather young children who were evidently rehearsing and were surrounded by a large group of adults, we were calling for them to clear the trail. I was shouting, “This has no brakes! We can’t stop!” But our pleas were ignored.

We nearly wrecked the dang thing in our maneuvering to avoid hitting anyone by going off the lane. But we figured later that any injuries we would have sustained in a wreck would have been nothing compared to what our cracker heads would have sustained if we had accidentally run into anyone.

Later, we were sitting on a bench near the boardwalk. A couple in their mid-teens showed up to share a “blunt” nearby.

I was glad to get the heck out of the city. Real shame. By contrast, we had visited earlier in the week and enjoyed it. There is a good museum there and a very nice veterans’ memorial near the boardwalk.

Remember the lawsuit? In previous years and now Myrtle Beach businesses found the event so disruptive and non profitable, many closed. The permanently outraged crowd sued to make the businesses stay open and lost.

Here’s a radical idea. Organize and self police the groups so much that that localities would welcome them. Just a thought.

I’m sure things weren’t perfect with this event but it was probably a cake walk compared to what’s coming in MB this weekend.

I don’t mind “Harley Week” at all. My friends who have businesses love it - they make $$$ and have very few problems.

This upcoming weekend - I’m on my way to the grocery store now and will hibernate with the exception of going to church on Sunday and a BBQ at a friend’s house Sunday evening. I’m right in the “thick of it”. I live 5 minutes from Myrtle Beach State Park......LOL

That was one of the worst experiences of my life. We were down there celebrating our 25th Anniversary and the antics and misbehavior drove my wife to tears and almost ruined our vacation. The Harley crowd the next week had noisy bikes too, but were better behaved.

Isn’t Miami where Freaknik finally ended up after our Black Mayor kicked it out of Atlanta? I’m thinking Urban beach week is codespeak for Freaknik.

Harley week is always the week before Black Bike Week and it’s loud but not bad at all. I absolutely detest driving in Myrtle Beach/North Myrtle Beach during Black Bike Fest! I just avoid it like the plague!

Several clubs in Miami will be closing as well this weekend.

South Beach Clubs Closing for Urban Beach Week (NSFW warning; some skimpy bathing suit photos).

Previous experience has taught that blacks aren't spending money in the clubs, they're just causing trouble, and staying open for UBW isn't worth it.

At least the gays will be spending money, not destroying the place and shooting each other.

Nonetheless and speaking from experience, "pride" festivals are no place for families.
