Skip to comments.[1993 article}: Campaign to Fight Attacks in Public Pools
Posted on 11/22/2013 4:49:02 AM PST by Cronos
Wearing a button that read "Don't Dis Your Sis," Mayor David N. Dinkins yesterday announced the start of a public relations campaign aimed at encouraging young men to respect their female counterparts.
The campaign was spurred by a recent spate of sexual assaults at city pools in which young men, often chanting rap lyrics, wrapped arms and churned through the water, ripping the bathing suits off young girls and fondling them in a phenomenon known as "the whirlpool." The police said five such attacks, all at different pools, were reported in less than a week with the latest reported on Sunday. Three youths were arrested in that attack.
Mr. Dinkins said he was outraged by the assaults.
"Part of what we want to try to do is to educate our young people," Mr. Dinkins said. "We want to try to convey to them that it is not appropriate behavior, that it is in no way macho to put upon young girls. It just isn't."
...Acknowledging that his musical tastes run more toward Billie Holiday than Sir Mix-a-Lot, Mr. Dinkins said he has long agreed with ministers that some rap music encourages young people to show disrespect for one another and the law. But he stopped short of blaming rap music for the sexual assaults.
"What's to blame is society," he said. "We, each of us, must do better by our young people in terms of behaving as role models and expressing our displeasure at behavior we know is not proper."

How black is that?

Those funny Amish./s
This was the least of Dinkins’s problems, what with there being upwards of two THOUSAND murders a year in NYC. That alone is what got Giuliani in later that year (1993).
Oh, good. I was hoping it was my fault and not the feral blacks doing it...
Even after 2 decades they are still on the “they dont it’s wrong” excuse. Really? How f’ed up is a culture where teens don’t know it’s wrong to sexually molest young girls or randomly attack people? Can we finally just admit that their culture needs to be “fundamentally transformed”. Obama had the best chance to push this message, unfortunately he decided to reinforce the “you are a helpless, blameless victim of whitey” BS.
The first sentence in my previous post should be “Even after 2 decades they are still on the they dont know its wrong excuse”. Proofreading failure.
There were 12 consecutive years - 1972 through 1983 - during which the murder rate topped 1500 per year.
Now it's about suckerpunching unsuspecting old white people.
Public polls? Close them and save the $$$$ for taxpayers.
I wonder when the “game” is going to evolve into “the rapeout game”.
WTF is it that you get two or more Amish together and they go “tribal?”
