Racial Tensions Lead To Brutal Fights


From HAYWARD (CBS 5) – Police have stepped up patrols at Hayward High School following a string of brawls that may be tied to local gangs, some of the fights were recently caught on cell phone video.
Massive fights broke out last Thursday, and were followed up the next day after class. Video, which was posted on YouTube, suggests tensions between African-American and Latino students, with the possibility of a gang influence involved.
Students who spoke to CBS 5 Thursday said the violence isn’t that surprising at a school where gang colors are worn openly.

Here is the cell phone video of a fight: 




It seems like the school is not doing enough to prevent fights from taking place between African-American and Latino students.  The news report only mentioned that red and blue were prohibited from being worn but didn't say whether those colors are worn by the gangs or not.  The school is certainly not enforcing the dress code. Is this a turf war?  What could be reasons for these two ethnic groups fighting each other? After doing a bit of research I will be posting on possible reasons why gangs form.

Odie,

The teenagers are acting like immature idiots. But unfortunately their acting in this manner probably isn't all their fault. Their parents should be raising them better.

And the balkanization of America continues.

The gang members drag us down with them. They kill and threaten our children with their violence. I am against it.

So much for BO healing the racial divide.

This is the predictable consequence of the leftists' proclivity for categorizing everyone, shoving them in racial (and racist) boxes and then stoking dissatisfaction, envy, and hate among them.

Instead of us all being proud Americans, we're pitted against each other in class and race warfare. It's repulsive. But again, this sort of thing is the predictable fall-out from that.

What's going to be interesting is seeing what happens when the statist pols realize their mistake and can't turn back the tide of bitter enmity amongst the isolated groups. The point was to control them, but that control will be lost, and all hell will break loose. BO and his traitorous horde push for it daily.
