A large group of black woman can be seen in the video involved in an apartment complex brawl. Two seem to be the center of some argument that has many people involved.
I know how things can get, things can get out of hand quickly and tempers can flair but I really think there is a huge problem here.
People stand around encouraging this, egging it on and filming. No one steps in to try and stage an intervention, people are selfishly enjoying the event even.
Is this a problem with us these days? No one actually cares, we are looking for the next viral video instead of dealing with the issues that are tearing communities apart?
We all need to start stepping up, encouraging conversation and conflict diffusion… Not excitedly looking forward to filming it (although I think it should be filmed for evidence and lessons).
What do you think?
