Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Something popped into my mind about all this, and it was remembering living in the San Francisco bay Area, where there was (is?) regular shootings in the Black and Latin neighborhoods of SF, Oakland, and San Jose. There are certain areas you really avoid, especially at night. And this is news in that area...and we are talking for the most point blacks on blacks, Latinos on Latinos...but it isn't news I think many outside those areas know or hear much about. It would be huge news if it was black or brown killing white...but it isn't. This situation in Paris and elsewhere IS serious, but so far it isn't about murder and mayhem...knock on wood.
