Thank you! Seriously, what should Minorities do? Start a race war? Continue senseless gang wars in the inner-cities? Start racial supremacy groups against one another? I'm all for Black Nationalism, but I don't agree with Black Seperatism. I think it's just an attempt to apply elements of White Nationalism to Black Consciousness. Black Seperatism wouldn't accomplish much, alone, the African-American race is not powerful enough to successfully put down White Hegemony. NO Minority group is.

I've noticed the same trend, from personal experience. And in my case it has nothing to do with gangs, drugs, or prostitution, which obviously plagues the larger cities. Dissimilarly, I beleive the real estate brokers have labeled my old community as a "black neighborhood" in a "white town." There is simply no influx of new money, or new interest. Frankly, I don't mind, because there is nothing wrong with a black neighborhood that is drug-free, gang-free, and without prostitution.

Wearing a scarf or a yarmulke for strictly religious reasons is a long way for wearing head gear because of gang associations. That said if they truly treat all head gear including the yarmulke as the same then fine. But I believe that if a person of Jewish faith wore his they would probably find a way to get around the rule.

That it happened on 9/11 is no coincidence. They are using the "gang-related dress code" as an excuse to pick on an eleven year old child. Doing this on 9/11 only reinforces their motive. They should NEVER have approached the child about removing it in the first place. They aren't stupid. They knew wearing the head-dress was a part of her religious beliefs. I think they wanted to humiliate her. Like I said - I'm glad she stood her ground.
