Are flash mobs violent?

They didn't mind as long as the violence didn't reach white communities. Throughout the postwar period, police were usually fast to erect a fence around the ghetto. The so-called "flash mobs" of today are not riots. They are, however, a sort of black communal aggression that has breached the boundary. Many observers believe that blacks are changing their traditional non-violent attitude toward violence.

Even though violence is rarely used between black Americans, it is always available as a threat. This fact helps to explain why there have been so many incidents of racial violence in this country over the years.

The first modern-day "blackout riot" occurred in Philadelphia on July 4, 1788. A group of American colonists led by Samuel Blankard attacked the city jail where several African slaves were being held captive. They wanted to free them but the guards had already taken them out back and executed them. There was no way for the prisoners to know this, though, since the dark night prevented them from seeing anything beyond their own prison cell.

Blankard was later hanged for his part in this incident. It is said that he went straight up to the gallows smiling.

In 1866, another blackout riot broke out in New York City. This time, it was caused by the assassination of President Lincoln. Although blacks did not kill him, many still felt responsible for his death because he had done away with slavery.

What’s wrong with Juggalos?

Juggalo gangs are a threat to the community, according to the National Gang Intelligence Center, because of their proclivity for violence against law enforcement, innocent civilians, and other members of their group, and Juggalos in Colorado have become increasingly involved in violent crime, including aggravated assault...

— from "Why Are People So Mad At Juggalos?"

The culture that is Juggaloism revolves around the music festival scene, where underground rappers mix their songs with the music of popular artists like Eminem and The Beastie Boys. Although many consider Juggalos to be a gang, they fight primarily with each other as a form of entertainment. They use weapons such as knives and guns when fighting other groups or individual Juggalos.

Many people think that being a Juggalo means being a criminal or someone who commits acts of violence, but this is not true. In fact, most Juggalos are very family-oriented and would never hurt another person.

The problem with Juggalos is that they have been known to break up into clans called "gangs," which are then used to commit crimes. These gangs will often wear clothing or tattoos related to their favorite artists or musicians. For example, one clan may dress up in black clothes with white stripes down the pants while listening to White Stripes music.

Why did flash mobs die?

According to Wasik's interview with, the final New York flash mob occurred after the New York Times published a reaction piece about the flash mob movement. Wasik chose to disband the mobs when they were at their peak of popularity rather than allowing them to dwindle to the point where they no longer drew participants. He said he felt this was the correct thing to do because the mobs had become too big to continue without losing momentum.

He also mentioned lack of leadership as another reason why the mobs died out. There were many different groups participating in the events who didn't know each other and weren't connected with one another. This made it difficult for anyone to direct the mobs in order to create more organized events. Finally, he said that social media played a role in the demise of the flash mobs because everyone wanted to be part of the action and share their experiences immediately after it happened. Participants would post photos and videos on Facebook and Twitter which then required those posting them to wait a certain amount of time before publishing these types of content again in order to avoid duplicating efforts.

Overall, it can be said that the flash mob phenomenon died out because there were not enough new ideas being brought into the events to keep them interesting. Also, there was no clear leader who could have directed the mobs in order to make them last longer. And finally, social media killed the mobs by making it easy for people to copy each other's actions and therefore stop coming together for these types of events.
