Race and the River Market

Posted By on Sun, Aug 29, 2010 at 7:55 AM

Noted: the story in the D-G this morning ( reg. required) about a Little Rock cop fired for being filmed on this video using the word "jigaboo" to a group filming in the River Market. This happening is an undercurrent of the larger story about late-night in the entertainment district, including a perception on the part of some of rising crime problems. There's also a very touchy angle to this. I don't know any other way to put it — and I am not endorsing this feeling — but some people are made nervous by events that draw large numbers of African-Americans.
