    Not surprising that about 15-20% of the residents in my area (western Brookfield) are blacks.

    Actually, the kids in those pictures would likely be on the receiving end of a beat down. That style of dress is part of a growing old school movement(sometimes called hipsters) that is big in Chicago and on the East Coast. Some kids in Milwaukee dress like that(I am probably the youngest person who comments here so I am a good source) but to be fair it is more a combo of a milwaukee style with Chicago style of dress. Milwaukee is usually behind in terms of urban fashion and culture by about a year or two, so if the kid was dressed like in those pics, he was probably called gay and beat up for supposedly being gay(Which A lot of conservative people would not be so upset about actually). People do not like being placed into that cultural group, but the similarities are hard to ignore.

    Thanks for the insight TIV. As you can guess, being old has its disadvantages.

    However one of them isn't stereotyping.

    Come now young man. First you call the boy gay then imply that conservatives support gay bashing... Holy straw men Batman!

    Interesting, Dad29, that so few blacks live in Shorewood (where I live).

    Maybe it's simply wanting to be as far from the Inner City as possible, and Shorewood isn't far enough away.

    move out of milwaukee. the city will never get better. there are no inner city jobs and nowhere for inner city youths to go. so what do they do with their time? commit crime. how else will they make money. the MPD is corrupt and families are scared. high taxes, high crime, little police protection. just leave not to the suburbs out of the state completely.
