Washington, D.C.: Black Gangs Target White Fans After Nationals Games


Robberies near Nationals Park alarm fans, neighbors

Three robberies near Nationals Park this week have local baseball fans on alert.

Police say a group of juveniles attacked three people on Monday and Tuesday. At least one of the victims had just come from a Nationals game.

What has been described as gangs of teenagers have accosted people on the streets near the stadium and robbed them or beaten them while trying to rob them.

And it's raising concerns particularly for Nationals fans leaving night games. One fan reported on the neighborhood listserv that would-be robbers beat and chased him.

Neighborhood activist Naomi Monk says pedestrians should be careful at night. That's when all three of the attacks occurred, one late Monday when there was no game, two late Tuesday when there was a game.

"Do not walk in this area, particularly at night even when we have games," Monk says. "Generally it's a group of kids, five or six."

Police say they've made two arrests connected to one of the robberies.

D.C. Police Cmdr. Danny Hickson says detectives are following up and investigating the other two robberies.

Police say that Nats fans--or anyone else--don't have to wait until they're actually attacked to call police. You can call if you're suspicious.

I attended a Nats game over Memorial Day weekend. We paid $35 to park inside the stadium area. The Metro is three blocks from the stadium, through a Black area. Given that almost all the fans are White, it is safe to conclude that these are Black “youths” going after White fans.

N.S.: White fans need to boycott Nats games. (“White fans” and “fans” are here synonyms, since “Chocolate City” blacks see the Nats merely as a source of income through jobs and crime, but do not support the team. Then again, how is this city different from all other baseball cities?) If they do, ownership will be forced to variously demand more police protection, as well as pay for more security to patrol that three block stretch, as well as stadium parking area, or lose a fortune.

In diversity, decent white people always lose, whether through muggings and harmed and lost fans, and/or through paying a fortune for enhanced private security and more police, and/or through paying extortion to criminals in the form of “jobs” and “programs.”

Diversity: It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
