That's why I said it's more about how people present themselves than anything. That's kinda part of the point I was trying to make. Just because they are black doesn't mean they are going to mug, murder, and rape you. Out this way they very well could all be pre-med kids walking to their nightly volunteering gig at the hospital.

i have lived in/around detroit all my life and in today's environment, i get a little leary whenever i see a 5-pack of anybody walking down the street toward me. I have to say that I feel the same way to a degree. If anything its just that if something did go down the odds are severely skewed, and not in your favor.

anyway, does anybody even WALK anymore??
Hell every Saturday I see large packs of bearded, wide brimmed hat wearing Jews wandering around. To some that may be a bit worrisome I suppose.
