Is that a racist statement?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Didn't start with smartphones.

Totally different story of the actual murder, and the "bystander effect" questionable.

Quote
In 2007, an article in the American Psychologist found "no evidence for the presence of 38 witnesses, or that witnesses observed the murder, or that witnesses remained inactive".[7] In 2016, The New York Times called its own reporting "flawed", stating that the original story "grossly exaggerated the number of witnesses and what they had perceived".

My cultural question was about both "Morris was stabbed in the chest... ...the attack appears to have stemmed from a dispute over a girl "and the perception of who she might be dating or who she might be hanging with."" and "at least 60 teens had gathered around the parking lot to watch the confrontation, and some took cellphone video that was posted on social media."

I don't know if Kitty Genovese is proof of bystander effect or not, but based on personal experience I would tend to believe that the bystander effect is real in cases of where the bystander may be harmed by stepping in. Yes, 60 people may be there, but each person individually is risking their life if they respond by themselves.
Live forever or die trying.

Call police, call for help, don't just stand there and watch or record the murder. Besides, based on the story the "bystanders" might be far from innocent. It's being reported as a setup.

I'm not quite sure how race comes in here, I thought we're talking about culture?

(I don't even know the race of those involved in this story)

I know many up here refrain from looking down on the goyish lifestyle, but seeing this just makes me prouder to be a Yid, and I right away move on, not spending my time analyzing and trying to understand a rotten culture.

Well, if race means skin color, I too am color blind. But it seems to mean culture in contemporary vernacular.

Makes me wonder about planes...
Unless someone is running an extension cord with 3 overloaded power strips plugged in to it I wouldn't worry too much.
