This story is one of hundreds Colin Flaherty planned to publish in a book before his death. American Renaissance will post one a week.
I was a New York Fire Department firefighter in Brooklyn back in the early 1980s. It was the crime capital of the US. A five square mile area, 120 homicides per year. Crack cocaine was the drug of choice. One day, a traveling carnival from Arkansas decided to set up there. They were going to stay for a week. We spoke to a couple of the workers and told them that this was a very bad area and maybe they should rethink their plans. They did not take our warning seriously.
The very next day, we went by to see how they were doing. Lo and behold, they were shutting it down and packing up. We asked why. One of the workers said he had never seen anything like it. Packs of blacks were stealing, fighting, and causing mayhem, assaulting workers etc. The carnival had a lion on display. A bunch of blacks took the darts from the balloon popping game and threw them at the lion! You can’t make this stuff up. Looks like things haven’t changed much in the inner city in the last 30 years.
