I hope you're modded down below -1 into some minus infinity where we can never see your typing again.
I've been to Newark, Philadelphia, Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and similar places many, many times. I am a white man who grew up in New York City and went to high school in Alphabet City. I've seen more of what passes for bad neighborhoods in America than you've had hot dinners, asshole. And I have never once been threatened, let alone menaced, attacked, mugged, beaten, shot, stabbed, or anything.
The people of Ferguson are not animals. They're human. They're people. They deserve more respect than you do, Anonymous Coward, with your ridiculous racist views.
