If this is an issue of race, and isn't just an issue of juvenile delinquency, then could someone please tell me what is causing these African-American youths to behave in such a manner, and why youths of other ethnic groups are not acting in such a manner?
Until then I won't believe that this is just an issue of race, because acknowledging the issue as such is intentionally creating an ethnic divide that isn't necessary in an ethnically diverse country.

No ID, no admittance.
That is what this is coming to.
