This should be getting headlines, but it's not sensational enough to strike fear into us white folks' hearts since it's inner city and not at a movie theater, or school, or shopping center.

Or the Empire State Building:

Several shot at Empire State Building, authorities say

New York (CNN) -- As many as five people were shot Friday in front of the Empire State Building in New York, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department said.
Authorities converged on the building around 9 a.m. after reports of gunfire.
Additional details were not immediately available.

All generalizations are dangerous.
