Race Baiting at Ditmas park Blog?

In monitoring the Ditmas Park blog there has been a number of Micro-aggressive messages pertaining to Blacks living in the area. I don't know the point in posting a picture of an Ipod thief in a neighborhood blog. In fact Ipods are stolen in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the other boroughs all the time. There was also some controversy over a doll that may or may not have resembled Black Face. Notice the subtle messages in these post. One might wonder if this is just an accident or might there be more to this? Stay tune.

obviously the photo was included because it was a local theif and neighbors should know about it - being a ditmas park blog and the incident happening at newkirk - made all the sense in the world ... you're the one coming off like an idiot here

Racism = fear

When folks irradicate their fears (which for most is almost impossible)
then racism will vanish.

That idealistic being said, people here are always afraid of those who are different or from outside their community, however it is you define those boundaries.

Most of the crap being complained about has been going on forever.

I’ve been getting allot of trolls on my blog lately. I’m not interested in all this Sonny Carson talk. I could care less. I’m also not interested in all this Blacks are Criminals diatribe. The fact is we are all Human Beings. If a White, Black, Asian person does a crime or anything bad it’s a reflection on all of us. We all belong to ONE RACE. If an Alien from outer space was to look at earth. They wouldn’t say look at what this white person is doing or look at what this black person is doing. They would say look at what these HUMANS are doing. Get over it. As far as I’m concern this will not be a blog for Hate Speech or Race Baiting. If you want to do that, go to Google groups or go to Rush Limbaugh’s website. I don’t care to hear from you. Any message you post will be deleted. I’m more interested in building a bridge and social interactions then debating a bunch of jerk offs who are probably not getting any ass.

From what I've seen thus far, there's a bit of racism here too. To capitalize Black but not white is a pretty obvious smear, but what are you gonna do? I'll continue to be a good neighbor no matter what, and if the blog pans out with some good local news, I'll keep reading it. I suppose it's still better than the troll-happy Kennsington Blog where all they do is attack the new diversity of the neighborhood. I don't know if racism is unpretentious or not, but I don't like it all that much...

Well if it is not a blog for race baiting...then stop baiting. If we belong to "one race"...why do you constantly mention your "lighter skinned brethren?" Why even mention race? You started it dude....now delete this post...as you are want to do!

the people commenting on blogs these days reveal a cross section of our culture that has some real issues with knowledge about each other and tolerance for differences all the while focusing on the minutia. we come from a diaspora that is so convoluted, we should all consider ourselves blood relatives. it's sad to see we have yet to transcend beyond race and see humanity staring back. check yourselves and your knowledge of each other. you all reveal the problems stagnant on a larger context!!!
