Philadelphia mayor talks tough to black teens after 'flash mobs'
The Washington Times | Monday, August 8, 2011 | Dave Boyer

PHILADELPHIA — Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths "you have damaged your own race," imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest "flash mob" - spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city's tourist and fashionable shopping districts.

"Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer," Mr. Nutter, the city's second black mayor, said in an angry lecture aimed at black teens. "Pull your pants up and buy a belt 'cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt."

"If you walk into somebody's office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won't hire you? They don't hire you 'cause you look like you're crazy," the mayor said. "You have damaged your own race."

Mr. Nutter announced that he was beefing up police patrols in certain neighborhoods, enlisting volunteers to monitor the streets and moving up the weekend curfew for minors to 9 p.m.

Parents will face increased fines for each time their child is caught violating the curfew.

The head of Philadelphia's chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, J. Whyatt Mondesire, said it "took courage" for Mr. Nutter to deliver the message.

"These are majority African-American youths and they need to be called on it," Mr. Mondesire said.

Mary Catherine Roper, a spokeswoman for the Philadelphia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said her group sees the curfew move as legal with its sole caveat being that it not evolve "into an excuse to hassle" any youths on the street.
Oh, Oh, looks like another "beer summit" needs to be scheduled.....

Race relations have been set back a hundred years thanks to downgrade obama and his minions

I think most* white people have admitted that the past history of our country towards, blacks, native Americans,minorities, has not been stellar to say the least..

and while there are some who still think of minorities as inferior. it is clear most of US want minorities to excel..

in other words.. it isn't us white people who are dragging race relations down..

today it is some minorities dragging themselves down.. and blaming it on us..

the constitution, congress, courts, have worked to make things more then fair.. to make up for the past.. and for many it had worked..

but over the last couple of years, someone ripped the scab off a wound that was healing..

I would say that someone is a combination of feel good programs that failed.. and a need to blame someone else on the failures..

thankfully mayor Nutter is at least saying it.. I remember when Bill Cosby said it and the backlash he received..

*Most in a large majority.. in my opinion means over 90%
