 My view on a statement like Rav Miller's is that whatever happens we are supposed to take a lesson out of it. When a tragedy happens and we say it may have been because of this that or the other thing it is simply to take a lesson from it for personal improvement. It is not to lay fault.

I believe it.
They've had people talk in schools, they've had meetings with “leaders of the African American community”. Leaders of the African American community ?? Lol

Part of the issue is that some of the leadrs are the issue themselves.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

It seems we identified the problem. So what is the next step?
What about marches?

Interesting. Been here 35 years and haven't had an encounter like that.
In general, I find black people in CLE are friendlier than Jews in NYC in the midwest vs NYC sort of way. They say hi and smile when you walk past them, whereas in NYC a stranger looks at you like you're nuts if you do that.

As NYC folks have moved to CLE en masse of late, I try to do my part to get them to say good shabbos as we walk past each other :)
Don't know which part of NYC you're talking about but I do get "gut Shabbos" very often from "strangers" that live in NY. Also, please keep in mind that if I were to say gut Shabbos or hi to e/o who walks past me, I would say that 10 times every second.

Oh! And when I was in Cleveland a few months ago there wasn't even 1 black person who smiled at me, let alone a friendly hi

Part of their being leaders is the media promoting them as such.

sorry to jump in  unannounced but im very curious. How is it, in the wake of diversity in our culture at the forefront, antisemitism is ramped. 


Moreover the national news decline to present this as a cycle of premeditated attacks and thread the connection between them - making even a "petty" attack against jews national news to support the premise.

For starters new leadership. Deblasio doesn’t care about black crime, even when blacks are victims from black on black crime. He’s still out there blaming trump & white supremacists for these anti Semitic attacks. We need a mayor like giuliani. Tougher penalties are needed. Letting them out 2 minutes after arraignment is the biggest joke. Stop tying law enforcements hands. How’s that for starters ? I know, not gonna happen.

After working 20+ years in the hood I don't go there anymore. But remember I would know nothing about being spat on, things thrown at you or being shot. What is that saying about walk a mile in my shoes?
I’ve been shot at, had a big chunk of ice thrown at my head, & a kid of mine was thrown to the ground by a whole pack of them on his way home from school. This wasn’t even in the hood!! Care to walk a mile in my shoes ? :)

I could make fun of or dismiss some of your suggestions but won't.
Are you in favor of tougher penalties for criminals in general? That is something I would like to see.
The problem is when you give LE more leeway some abuse it. That abuse is mostly directed at minorities.
As for Rudy I am going to guess you want the old version and not the new version.

Best thing we could do is switch shoes for a week.
