Black People Celebrate Spring in Exceedingly Black Fashion

Remember this one from last week?
White People Celebrate Heat Loss in Exceedingly White Fashion."

Guys enjoying a basketball game is "exceedingly white"?  OK, whatever.  (Wait, isn't a writer using the word "exceedingly" exceedingly white too?  Just asking.) Back to my point...

Since we are supposed to be having this great national conversation on race, let's have it...let's have the open and honest...actually forget it.  If the above is the level of engagement that one side is prepared to do, let's shelve the good faith needed to have an open an honest debate, because, let's face it, nobody really wants that debate.  So screw the putative national conversationalists, let's talk about some "exceedingly black" behavior.  Hmmm, where to start...?  Hey, let's keep it in Chicago where we encountered our exceedingly white gaggle of gents last week.  What went on in Chicago lately that was "exceedingly black"?  How about this?
The warmest day of the year so far brought hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue on Saturday. Police were calling it “mob action.”
CBS 2 has learned about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests. In all, 25 juveniles and three adults were charged.
Many innocent shoppers and tourists became caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation. Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago.
Of course, if anybody actually read this blog, that statement would cause the most righteous of righteous indignation.  Hell, if the Mayor of Philly read it he might call the Human Rights Commission on me.  So what is my point?  Well, it is that the "national conversation on race" is phony.  It's a bunch of idiocy, disingenuousness, and, frankly, mild racial animus.  There is no real conversation.  Until leaders of all stripes call Chicago's wilding rampagers what they are and black leaders own up to a problem that is to a great extent their own (see here), and until we drop the puerile, superficial racial tweaking - guys enjoying a basketball game are just guys enjoying a basketball game - for more elevated debate, there is and won't be any conversation.

note the word, "mischievous". So cute they are.

The problem with the little news videos, etc., is that the mobs are almost always black americana.
