I would have to say it is. This is the first I've read about anything in a while. I'm sure the YPD will keep downtown safe.

The girl that got beat is white, she thinks she's black! Thats probably why she got beat-up.

The Love Lounge is across from the Phar Mor Building in downtown Youngstown. There are mostly white woman who do think they are black that frequent this spot, so my son tells me. Being Black is a beautiful thing for all the African American haters. There are fights in the white bars as well. It really kills me that every time there is something in the paper about and urban/black club/bar everyone has something to say. But, let it be said about a white establishment, mums the word. I didn't see all these comments a few weeks ago when the white man got beat at the white bar/club. Where were all of you then? It would be a wonderful if you kept your little white girls/woman out of the African American arena, I know I'm tired of talking to my son about them, that's all that comes thru my door. Paying his bills, washing his clothes with their parents money. They're making him not want to do anything before his deployment. If I tell him to clean the kitchen while I'm at work, I'll come home and one of them are washing my dishes. WTH! Teach these girls the difference between Love and being used. This is one of the first lessons of life I taught my daughter. If you want to help the Black man stay a man. Keep the ones that make them lazy away.

What exactly does it mean to "act/talk white" or "trying to be black"???? Are these definitions found in the dictionary? Seriously.

13BrothaLove(81 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

I resent this "lazy black man" mess. I understand what Joydav is saying in that such behavior from any woman will make a man feel as if he doesn't have to do certain things, but black women are trained not to let a man get away with such behavior.

I do agree with Joydav on the comments brought forth anytime the establishment/incident is believed to involve blacks. Dozens of comments about a black establishment, but the same situation will occur at a predominately white establishment and nothing is said. This only weakens the point of the commenters and strengthens the argument that those making the comments are likely local racist slackers who are unhappy with themselves and therefore need to verbally bully those they wish were beneath them. I just see you as pitiful.

As usual all of the white haters just label it as another case of racism. Ask Hagan if he thinks it's safe downtown. Get real it isn't real safe most anywhere in the Valley. Drive by shootings happen everywhere. While the suburbanites degrade Youngstown so easily it is not that safe there either.

How did this go from a woman getting beat up at a bar downtown to white women are bad for black men? Holy crap! Lol! This is ridiculous! Racism is sad but it will always exist unfortunately. "it would be wonderful if you kept your white girls/ women out of the African American arena". Wow if that's not a raciest comment I don't know what is. And your son is in the military? He should know how to take care of himself then, I know by experience. I have 3 children and one on the way. I am white and I can hoestly tell you that if a young man walked into my home to date one of my daughters I don't care if he's black, white, Hispanic or purple and green! As long as he is good to my daughter and acts like a man then Id be the happiest man alive. You see in this society it is ok for a white guy to date a black girl. But the minute a white girl dates a black guy it's the end of the world. Who cares!!!! As long as they are happy what is the problem? And as far as the "white girls" doing things for your son? Last time I checked my mother wanted a women that was gonna take care of me. That's what most mothers want. I'm way to independent to have my wife cook or clean up after me but she wouldn't think twice about doing it if she had to. The problem sounds like he might have been babied a little too much! "black women are trained to not let men get away with such behavior". Then why on a daily basis do I see black women testify in court that they were not assaulted by their boyfriend or babys dad, when pictures and evidence clearly state different? They lie for them so they don't go to jail. Now I'm just speaking of my experience in this town, it may be different in normal parts of the country.

Oh, and I can guarantee that if a black woman came into a "white bar" with a white man she would not get beat unconscious because she was with him. I truely hope that there was more behind this than just that.

I have read all the comments re: my post, and have come to one conclusion. Some people don't read clearly and will always take thing out of context. Now, with that being said, @ USMC0331, my son is leaving for the Marines, Dec. 6th, and he independent and will hustle to make money doing what ever job his dad has him do at his business. My comment stated that, I come home and these white girls/woman are doing things that they shouldn't be doing, washing my dishes. Why would you come into someone's home and wash their dishes? Am I a moron? To think that is just wrong? Where is your ability to judge that someone isn't treating you as your suppose to be treated. Are we now gonna call that Low Self Esteem? I was just simply stating that white girls/woman do all these thing and most black men love it so that they don't have to do anything. I didn't say that my son wasn't independent, I said that white girls/woman make him lazy. There is no way in &*^% I would go to a man's home and have him even feel that he could open his mouth to ask me to was a dish. Seriously, what world are you living in that you haven't seen this. I was told by black men, on the street, in my family and various other arenas that they prefer white woman to blacks because black woman don't do things that white woman will do. So, because I and other black woman demand respect we don't deserve a black man? Man please. You know, I'm sitting here with my husband of 20 years and between us we have raised 9 children and we're laughing at the thought that someone could actually say that they don't get what I'm saying. Got to go now, because I could go on forever. LAOOY

20USMC0331(152 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

Obviously you didn't read either! I never said that a black man doesn't deserve a black woman. That being said when you first start dating isn't it like a woman to try and do things for a man to impress him and make her more desirable? Your making your sound sound like a womaniser! And he is in the marines or is going to bootcamp? I'm glad he chose the correct branch of military it's pretty obvious why I say that. If you ment something else then I'm sorry but the way you went about explaining it was terrible. And I know for a fact that not all "white women" are like that. I still don't understand why you wouldn't want a good woman to take care of him. Or is it that she can be a good woman just as long as she's black? And I know pleanty of black women who would do things like that! Like I said before I know I want what's best for my children and your a mother so I know you do to. Maybe what I read was not what you ment but I just read it two more times and still sounds te same as the first time.

ok well lets see here. i was just looking up youngstown news to see if it was a really bad place like people say it is because i was gonna go to ysu for college n i saw these comments. i decided to make a page so i cn comment back on these..stsn, tht was funny. YSUGRAD, it do sound like a hippie love shack lol! Dawgz, tht culd be the answer cuz i seen stuff happen like tht in high school! like really? n joydav, i agree wit wat u said n its well put! my brother even said the same thing about y thy like white women better. let me put it this way. white women will do anything to keep thy man happy. i see it all the time. n im not sayin all whit women are like tht cuz thy not. some are independent and want thy man to take care of them like they should. but mostly white women take a black mans crap! black women wont because thats how thery're raised. tht thy dnt need to depend on no man n tht u dnt want one tht aint got nothin goin for him. basically a black woman would say if u wanna be lazy n do nothin thn step! but a white woman would jus allow it. n igotsomethintosay, no white women make black men lazy. a black man may already be lazy because their parents allowed them to be tht way. some white women jus add to it by doing things for them makin them even mo lazy. Gingerspice, well i see actin/talkin white as using proper english and actin like u got some home trainin. so when a black person is seen wit some common sense they say thy act or tlk white because thy dnt fit in wit the common black stereotype tht all blacks should use slang and be gangsters. now tryin to be black is when a white person will try to take on the black stereotype n sag the pants n talk black n stuff like tht. BrothaLove, i like wat u sayin. palbubba, yea but let this be the other way around, all black haters would labe it as another case of racism too. USMC0331, i see wat u mean in the first sentence! thts not the most racist comment..just sayin. but thats your opinion about ur child datin whoever thy want. with certain people its different. i myself dont date white people and i wouldnt want my kids to but if they happy then i wouldnt care either way..

black women testify for their man either because they have self esteem issues n they feel thy "need" a man in their life or they know what their bf is doing is wrong such as assult but thy dnt kno how to get out even though the answer is right there. they become accustom to the abuse n stuff. i seen somethin like tht on oprah. but thy also prolly testify because thy mite have kids n thy dnt want their children to grow up without their dad. whatever the case there's a reason y thy testify even though there is evidence. n tht is tru but whites are different frm blacks. truly this all plays back to when racism was really bad. we'll never forget n ppl still hol on to tht so wen blacks se somethin tht thy feel aint right thy will act on it. n censoredship, was Young Trajik a light skinned boy like about 18 years old? if so he passed away in february in a car accident. he was my best friend..n USMC0331, yea there are some black women like tht. but i dnt c y its always black n white. everyone acts the same blacks whites asians puerto ricans n everyone else. n its sad tht im only 18 and i had to comment on these. and i just turned 18 on the 5th. so im still young but this is sad people

I get your point. You make valid points in each one of your comments. I think you are a little above the cut for your age so keep doin what your doin. My point was that there is to much put on race. Your tryin to tell me if you had a white guy who treated you like gold you wouldn't date him? I mean to each his/her own but I wouldn't stay with someone just because of the color of their skin. I've dated all races. I love a woman who's not affraid to be a woman. I'm not the type of person who believes that you should wait hand and foot on a man. I could never let a woman do that. Independence is different from the attitude that women have of, I'm not raised to "be" that way. In a relationship it's not always 50/50. Matter of fact it never is. I would never date a woman who couldn't meet me half way. The way I am understanding Joydav is that she raised her daughter to be independent but it's ok for her son to treat women the way she doesn't want her daughter to be treated. And for the record, just because he works doesn't make him independent! If you have children then you know wantng the best for them is number one. I don't know maybe I misunderstood what sh was tryin to get across but maybe I didn't. I love all people in this world until you give me a reason not to. And one of my faults is I give people the benefit of the doubt and even after they mess up a few times.

thank you. n yes tht is so true. no i wouldnt date him. like hecould treat me like the greatest girl in the world but i still wouldnt date him. i feel as if i should jus stay in my own race ya kno? n neither would i. say if i had a black guy n he treated me like crap. just cuz he is black dont mean imma stay with him. he gets kicked to the curve and i find someone else. n yes ive dated some white guys awhile ago but i jus feel like they're not for me so thats why i stopped. n i understand exactly what you're saying. oh ok. see now that you put it that way it makes alot more sense. its sure dont! of course ill always want the best for my child. she may be jus 3 but she is gonna get older n imma want the best each step of the way. exactly. but my thing is that i wont like you until i get to kno you and it may sound wrong but thats jus how i am. i mean yea ill love you because God says to love everyone but tht dont mean i have to like you..im jus sayin. but yea i understand what you are tryin to say and it makes sense.

Good cause that's how I ment it. And maybe white dudes aren't for you. I can understand that, but personally I would never shoot someone down cause of the color of their skin. Ugly, yes! Color no! Lol! J/K. Anyway, hopefully you'll find a good man and no matter what he is he'll treat you and your baby good. My dad before he died at a young age told me he best saying I've ever heard. "any idiot with a dic$ can make a baby, but it takes a man to be a father". Good luck to you and I'm sure we'll talk again soon

Y'all seriously need to watch a show called "The Boondocks", last nites rerun about white jesus. If you can't find it on TV, check the cartoon network website. The humor and social commentary contained in this show are brilliant and all of you might learn something by watching it... even if it is a cartoon, like most of your comments.

This thread is the mother of all delusional excuse making.

If three women of any race jump one woman in a downtown bar and render her unconscious, it's going to make the news. I applaud the Vindy for printing this story because the crime is heinous and anyone going downtown should know that this situation exists. It's not two drunks flailing at each other over a misunderstanding, it was a deliberate and cowardly assault that resulted in serious bodily harm. Pretty interesting that no one knows the names of the perps. No, it's really not interesting at all. It's just another Youngstown cliche. Did it ever occur to you that this story never would have been printed if someone had actually cooperated with the police and turned the perps in? Spreading the word that these criminals are out there is done with the hope that someone who knows who did it will come forth.

Sorry, but not everyone acts like this, and no, things like this don't happen everywhere amongst everyone. And if it does happen every where, it doesn't happen with near the frequency as it does in certain places.

Please. White women make black men lazy? Give me an effing break. If someone is lazy, it's their own damn fault.
