Caribang

Try this word association test:

CARIBANA
A) Parade
B) Steel drums
C) Jerk chicken
D) Reggae
E) Shootings
F) All of the above

There have been three more fatal shootings this weekend in Toronto to coincide with Caribana, following the head start to the festivities earlier last week with seven shootings in one day.

Canadian Press hints at the connection, but dares not make it explicitly, lest cries of media racism be brought down on their heads. Yet it's a running joke about the annual Caribana shootings--so much so that when nobody gets shot during Caribana weekend, the same media acts pleasantly surprised.

Taste of the Danforth and the CNE aren't far off, but no one will be expecting shootings as part of either annual Toronto event.

So true, but if we take the word of the Afrocentrists - It's all a part of the white conspiracy to pick off as many blacks, as we can.

Yup...I'd say we're doing a pretty good job, these days.
