Korean restaurants that we talked about you simply wouldn't go there. However you do have a right to do that in many places Louisiana is among them but the group that is. Is going around flaunting.

And maybe the argument could be that people shouldn't be intimidated by that the people -- -- so the day. Those people. Know what they're deal.

And apparently. -- showing every sign of being a very responsible contributing member to our society. And she's gone. As a result of some people who are not contributing members of our society. She died from -- -- loans. Sunday morning I've left my apartment downtown and in what suburban street this is an area for the time I'm quite familiar with and and travel through this 700 block quite often. I did a video from the perspective of of people who were there. I used to astute candidate we're gonna start doing a scoot him on the show but it's it's on our website at WWO dot com enter video audio. And I'd I'd tell the story based on and on what I heard today aborting that the Swiss had done Sunday morning just hours after the shooting. You know it's interesting because when -- I've talked about my experience suburban street recent. I said to last week of the morning -- and this week as well boxing last week I said this week. -- you know I'm still confused about analysts. I said that there and I notice this over the last six months in particular. There's a new element. In the French Quarter. The French Quarter has changed. There are people who don't go to -- street. To party. They don't go to Burma street to have fun they're not they're not doing the same things that people do. When they traditionally -- street. What are they doing they have a right to do this. But it's interesting that they're just they're standing they're. In some ways they appear to be visually -- people as they walked -- And many of them are just. So. Disgusting -- degrading. To females. But it's amazing to me that that women don't turn around and slap them. Because of the way to treat it. There are also groups the congregate suburban street. But when I describe this as a new element on Bourbon Street I received some emails and texts. From listeners criticizing me for not being honest about the element. The checks in the email said you're being too politically correct call it like it is. And quite often the N word was used. Criticism because I refused to say the element is young black males because skin color doesn't have anything to do with the element that's in the French Quarter. It has to do with mentality. Have you seen a picture. Of the two gentlemen. That are people of interest in suburban street shooting have you seen pictures. They're on our website right now at WW will -- -- Take a look at their pictures. And this is why I'm so proud. I've refused to submit to the demands to be politically correct. To the point where I said this is about young black males. And even if a disproportionate number of young black males. Are assailants. And victims. Defining it that way makes it seem as if skin color has something to do with committing crimes. And skin color -- nothing to do with that. It's about culture. It's about. Parents. Or lack thereof. But if you were so quick to judge. Who was involved. In this urban street shooting. Take a look at the pictures of the people of interest. And NO PD has posted. It's on our website. At WWL. Dot com.
