Mike Hagler does not want to hear any more excuses for race riots at the Wisconsin State Fair. Or gunfire at the Juneteenth celebration in downtown Milwaukee.
“Big Mike” has a simple solution for the hundreds of black people who terrorized the Mayfair Mall and the Independence Day fireworks celebrations: Knock it off.
“Every time there is an event going on, people want to pull out guns and go crazy,” said Hagler, the teenage video blogger from Milwaukee. “Everything is getting cancelled: State fairs. Summerfest. All people want to do is fight. Y’all acting like animals. And it is crazy to say it is our own people acting that way.”
He continued, “It’s crazy when you go to an event and there be a majority white people there. As soon as black people come around that get to moving out of the way. They already know what is going to happen.
“It’s like when you want to go to Juneteenth. I ain’t going to go to Juneteenth because people already know what is going to happen. People are going to be shooting and fighting.”
It cannot be as bad as Big Mike thinks, right?
This year it [blacks misbehaving] happened again at Juneteenth when another massive disturbance resulted in the arrests of 54 people.
The newspaper never really said what all those people were doing to get arrested. The paper did, however, carry 17 pictures of black people cooking ribs, eating corn, dancing and playing basketball. There were no pictures of any of the 54 people breaking the law, or the two caught with guns.
[Journal-Sentinel columnist] Kane and the Journal-Sentinel were probably too busy to cover another race riot earlier this year as well. This one on Memorial Day at a lakefront beach.
Police closed the beach after violent disturbances involving hundreds of black people. Afterwards, the same group descended on a nearby shopping district, where they wrecked and looted a Whole Foods grocery store and a McDonald’s. WTMJ at least tried to report it:
“There were cars stopping, yelling at the kids, telling them to stop; one man said stop fighting stop fighting they kept on fighting,” said eyewitness Allen Miller. “Other kids were trying to pull them apart. They just would not stop.”
“I seen like, eight motorcycle cops, two horse cops, about five cop cars, seven cops across the street. They were right here on the sidewalk right in front of McDonalds, and they were climbing over the rail bottoms, standing here yelling to go, stop, or keep fighting,” Alan Miller, who witnessed the ordeal, said.
