I find it interesting that several groups in a crowd of 2,000 people, per your Feb. 19 report, Police arrest 4 in melee amid crowd, get into a massive beach brawl and you publish this item inside the local news section. A very small item, indeed.
Had this massive fight occurred during Memorial Day weekend, the news would have been splashed across the front page, in bold giant letters. Residents, and police alike, would be clamoring for the participants to go home and never return to South Beach. Who knows how many people would have been arrested?
What’s different? Could it be that visitors during Memorial Day weekend are, for the most part, African American? I know the answer. Do you?
