The Rise of Black Teen Terrorists

Many black teenagers don’t have enough to do apparently. In Macon, Georgia recently, a small horde of teen terrorists stormed a local Wal-Mart late at night and started destroying stuff for no reason:

Surveillance video of a wee-hours ruckus at a Macon Wal-Mart on Sunday shows a teenager race inside flashing gang signs ahead of a mob of four dozen or so people who burst in and smashed merchandise.

The commotion, which caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, appears to have been planned.

The teenager seen leading the rushing horde of young men and women told a Wal-Mart employee “that this was a planned event … to see how much damage they could cause,” the sheriff’s report said.

The teen, identified as 17-year-old Kharron Nathan Green, of Ashton Drive in northwest Bibb County, was arrested when he returned to the store to retrieve his cellphone.

This is not the first event of its kind, and I imagine it will not be the last. What is the significance of the fact that teen terrorists seem to be almost entirely black? Is it that only black teen terrorists get press? Or is it generally the case that mobs of white teenagers do little other than clog up the entrance to the movie theater glued to the screens of their smart phones?

I’m not sure. It’s interesting that the mob of teen terrorists in Macon didn’t steal anything outright. They just destroyed stuff. And in many other cases, it seems that teen terrorists are beating people, breaking things, and causing general havoc. But it doesn’t seem like they are looting. It’s odd considering how many times “race riots” devolve into looting and stealing.

So what would be the point of going around breaking, beating, destroying, and terrorizing? I really don’t know. Are these teen terrorists bored? Are they angry? What do they really hope to accomplish with this?
