    WARREN (WWJ) – Ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to court black voters in Detroit this weekend, supporters are holding more than two dozen flash mobs across the state. In metro Detroit, the flash mobs are happening at 4 p.m. Tuesday in several locations: 8 Mile and Haggerty (Meijer) in Northville; Rochester Road just north of M-59 (Lowes) in Rochester Hills; Pontiac Trail and M-5 in Commerce Township; M-59 and Bogie Lake Road (Meijer) in White Lake; Telegraph and 12 Mile (Meijer) in Southfield; 12 Mile and Van Dyke in Warren; 23 Mile and Gratiot (Meijer) in Chesterfield; Telegraph and Stewart...

    When one lady asked for volunteers to join her at a Rivertown Mall in Grandville, Michigan, to sing "Amazing Grace," 250 people responded with RSVPs, and over 1,000 showed up at the mall. What makes this different from other "flash mobs" is that the lyrics were given out in a high-quality gospel tract form (so that anyone could join in with the singing). "Fortunately the singing at the Rivertown Mall was video-taped, and it brought tears to my eyes," says Ray Comfort, who came up with the idea. "In the clip you can see people holding the tracts as they...

A conversation about race.JUDNICK: I feel like this is just an extension of the our “favorite” iMessage topic but in the light of the recent grand jury events with Mike Brown and Eric Garner (not to mention the promise of more to come with Tamir Rice and the others they’ve shot to death) I’ve been reminding friends that they do not have to answer to white people about their feelings.

    Did you ever imagine that, in America, groups of black thugs would attack unsuspecting whites? Did you ever think the first black president and Oprah Winfrey would encourage division and hatred between races? In today’s America, that’s the unfortunate reality. In what many tamely call the “knockout game,” black teenagers target whites to attack them without provocation. The aim is to knock the victim unconscious with one blow. Man, woman, young or old – it doesn’t matter – these thugs do not care. Authorities have reported violent attacks in New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., Connecticut and Illinois....

    1). Don't go to stupid places with stupid people to do stupid things. Simple but often ignored. Listen, we do not live in a fair world where everyone respects everyone else. Nor where everyone gets along. You may in fact be totally color-blind in a socio-ethnic sort of way, but not everyone is. So even if your liberal sociology professor thinks it is a cool thing to take a stroll at midnight through a ethnically homogenous part of town (different ethnicity that you), it is still a stupid idea. 2). Always have a method to defend yourself. Even if it...

    A band of robbers that tore through Hollywood Boulevard on Tuesday night appear to be some of the same youths who were attacking people and vandalizing stores in the Crenshaw district earlier this week where demonstrators were protesting the George Zimmerman murder trial verdict, police said. The thieves moved fast and swarmed their victims, mirroring the activity seen in Crenshaw the previous evening. “I think this specific group came up to riot and cause problems in Hollywood,” LAPD Sgt. John Barkley said. "They were not engaging in any kind of protest." Of the dozen people arrested in the indiscriminate crime...

    We cannot police hopelessness and despair! There are those who are angered and surprised by the violence of urban “Flash Mobs” (quickly forming groups of young people using technology to organize), especially crowds of young Black men, descending on mostly White, affluent downtown American cities. However, if we analyze this phenomenon, it is not so surprising. In fact, it is highly predictable. While there is no justification for young Black men to rob and beat people of any race, the activities of flash mobs are easily understandable in the context of recent social history and current economic conditions. Most of...

      NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Violent, thieving mobs have been making headlines across the country for the past few years, and now they have hit New York City. And Maurice Dubois reported in this CBS 2 investigation, the teen mobs have left neighborhoods worried as businesses take matters into their own hands. Judson Bennett, 78, recently ran into a violent group of teens – often described with the once-benign term “flash mob” – as he made his daily trip to buy a newspaper at his favorite news team. “I’m approaching the newsstand, and then suddenly there is a tremendous force...

    American Thinker ^ | September 19, 2012 | John T. Bennett
    A group of those whom Eric Holder described as "his people," at least six young men, repeatedly punched a 24-year-old white woman in the face, then proceeded to kick her face over and over when she was on the ground helpless. This occurred in Buffalo, New York last week, but the event has received no attention by the mainstream media because the victim was white and the attackers were black. This was no friendly urban jostling: the woman was left with a broken nose and cracked bones in her face. There must have been a little bit of hate in...

    The most reliable theory of man’s progression from caves to modern society is Abraham Maslow’s “Hierarchy of needs.” Maslow postulated that as man moves up the ladder of sophistication he reaches levels that provide him with security first in physiological needs – food sleep and so on, then feelings of esteem and “self- actualization.” It has become clear a new level of “progress” in satisfying needs must be added to Maslow’s list: entertainment provided by society. Today we are seeing large bands of young mostly minority criminals raiding businesses and stealing what they want to satisfy their demands for “entertainment”...

    I have never responded to the columnist down the river. But I was fascinated by Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass’ take on the recent mob attacks in and around the Streeterville neighborhood. In his interview with the unidentified doctor who was injured in the attack, Kass asked if the attack was “racial.” “I don’t think it was racially motivated,” the doctor said. “They were black, I’m Asian, but I think it was something else. I think it was about having fun because they could.” Still, whether white people are comfortable saying it out loud or choose to keep a lid...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Police hope surveillance pictures help lead them to one of three weekend mob attacks on people downtown. As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, a 23-year-old man was beaten up on the CTA Red Line near the State-Lake stop Saturday by a group of about six teenagers. The teens had just stolen the man’s 24-year-old wife’s iPhone 4S. She had dropped the phone, and a teen had picked it up and taken it for himself. The man told the teen to give his wife her iPhone back. But they instead began punching him...

    Minneapolis police want you to know race has nothing to do with an epidemic of violent crime in their downtown. Same for crime reporter Matt McKinney: The recent increase in what he calls “flash mob” violence and mayhem is “random” and “no other real pattern emerges” and the “motivation for the attack remains unclear.” But more and more people in Minneapolis are connecting the violence with groups of blacks marauding through the downtown; beating, hurting, destroying and stealing. Sometimes right in front of police. A lot of it on YouTube. With lots of witnesses – 15 to 20 times over...
