I was driving like a year ago near in Crown Heights area and group of black boys through a water bottle in my car. Thank G-d my driver window was closed or I could have been in big trouble.
Gotta keep windows closed when driving in this kind of environment.
That’s crazy.

If you don’t respond,you need to make Aliya!

Just say teens

Who cares if they were black or white?

Well, for that matter...
Guest
Well, for that matter...

…who cares about their ages either? Let’s just say “some people did something,” like Ilhan Omar said about the Sept. 11 attackers.

But anyone with any common sense realizes that you want to provide such details, so people know what and who to watch out for.

Well said, and nice comparison/reminder how NOT to act (Ohmar). Thank you

Hm. So if the article says black teens you know who to watch out for? That wouldn’t have helped the Poway synagogue folks. I get that our survival genes have us programmed to try and find patterns, and skin color is an easy first choice, but that’s also how racism and semitism gets its ugly roots.

I hope to see humanity evolve and figure out a way to protect itself with out resorting to primitive observations like color and gender.

Very simple

Don’t try to read invidious ideas into what other people are saying. If there is a group of black teens who are egging cars, and you see a group of black teens in that area, know to be careful. If you see a group of white teens in that area, or a group of middle-aged black people, etc., then they’re not the ones, and there’s no particular reason to be careful of them more than of any others. The same would be true had the eggers been a group of white middle-aged women. So instead of accusing others of being… Read more »

Poway happens every once in awhile.The Jews only respond to white and Muslim criminals.The blacks are given a pass

Selective and timid response from Jews.

Yes, maybe ‘just say teens’ is part of the problem…

Because

Because white teens didn’t do it.

Do the crime, you're going to be ID'd

I care about identifying where the crime is consistently coming from and so would you if you were the victim. I’m not brainwashed by what the so called liberal media tells me about hiding the truth to protect the perpetrator. It is the BLACK element of the neighborhood that has been harassing, assaulting and worse. Identifying the perpetrators and creating a focus on exactly who the public needs to be protected from is part of fixing the problem. I don’t hide the monsters who attack my brothers and sisters.

Why not just say they were black and omit that they were teens? Why is only one of those descriptions important and not the other? If you prefer to be less informed then don’t read the news at all.

Physical action required

Physical action required

Cowards never stop until they are afraid for their own safety. But on that note just realize that the police (in this neighborhood) who take little or no action when the victim is a Jew except make a show of patrolling in parked police cars for a few days, will do everything to catch and arrest a Jew. It’s a very real part of the problem and acts as an enabler to the Black criminals in our community.

Noahide laws not jail
Guest
Noahide laws not jail

Sorry it happened, but the Rebbe said many times the solution to crime is NOT more police and more jails!!! He told us to teach the Noahide Laws and promote Moment of Silence in Public schools. Are we as a community doing that??? No!

yes
Guest
yes

Lubavitchers need to put away the talk radio shows and facebook groups (both left and right!) and listen to what the Rebbe actually said.

I live in Boro Park. When I drive on the outskirts where tens of thousands of Chinese live I don’t worry about Chinese teens throwing eggs. They don’t. Crime is high among blacks and that’s a fact.

Egg throwing
Guest
Egg throwing

Kids acting wild.After eggs, they will throw rocks.Jews, don’t give a pass because of who they are.Pursue this until an arrest is made.

Stop freaking out all the time
Guest
Stop freaking out all the time

You’re being silly. There’s no rocks in Crown Heights.

Also teens are dumb sometimes. They throw eggs because they think it’s funny. I’m not saying it can’t be dangerous to a driver but Take it down a notch people.
