Teen Stabbed at National Zoo During African American Family Day
FOX DC ^ | Monday, 25 Apr 2011, 9:05 PM EDT | Staff

WASHINGTON - D.C. Police say a teenage boy was stabbed inside the National Zoo in Northwest.

Sources tell FOX 5's Wisdom Martin that a 14-year-old male was stabbed in the chest in the zoo after being jumped by another group of young people.

...

In a statement, the National Zoo says they have a person in Zoo police custody and that individual will be turned over to D.C. Police.

Easter Monday is traditionally African American Family Day at the National Zoo. Easter Monday has been a Washington-area multicultural tradition that spans more than 100 years. In 2000, there was a multiple shooting at the zoo during the same event.

A witness tells FOX 5 the scene was chaotic as police evacuated the zoo. She says people were stumbling over each other as they ran from the zoo.

Back in the 50s, when I was growing up in Memphis,
there was a zoo day for blacks...I think it was Thursday.
Today, the blacks now RUN Memphis...into a ditch.

In metropolitan New York, Easter Sunday has become “gang initiation day” with radio and other warnings to citizens to be on the alert for shootings.

It’s appropriate they hold it at the zoo with the rest of the wild animals

“Investigators say the victim who stabbed in the arm and side ran to the 2900 block of Connective Avenue where he was transported to the hospital and is in stable condition.”

May the victim remain in stable condition and recover completely from this attack.

THe real story here should be... they have "African-American Day" at the Zoo? WTF? If you are black but a citizen of Kenya, do they deny you entry?

And what do they call black people who are citizens of England? "African-Anglicans?"

It’s all part of the race industry. By having an African American Day they highlight racial differences, and that keeps Brother Jesse and brother Al raking it in...Unfortunately, no one bothers to consider that if you invite animals to watch animals you get animal fights. I propose the following days at the National Zoo:
Successful Americans Day
Job Creating Americans Day
Veteran Americans Day
Fiscally Responsible Americans Day
But if they had those, Jesse and Al would have to bus in outside protesters, and that costs money.

African Americans want to be kept separate but equal. That is why they have a special day at the Zoo./s

What happens if I come to town & want to visit the zoo that day? Because I am white they won't let me in? If that is the case then I see lawsuits in the future. I see no need to have special days for different races. I can understand a day for people/children with disabilities.

I think there is like 1 maybe 3 rednecks in DC. Even rednecks are smart enough to know when to get out of an area that should be nuked and rebuilt...

One and the same. I left my office, which is a block South of the Zoo, at 3:50, which put me at the zoo just before 4:00.
