Fifty years is a long time to stockpile ammo for a victory parade.

Racist headline.

Pfft, amateurs.  There were 3 people shot by 1 AM last night.

Looks like they planned the parade route vs spectator area with that in mind...

Mentioning a shooting spree comes purely from the soul of subby.  I have no idea why you would feel like introducing that into a parade celebration.  Good luck with the outlook and all.

FLMountainMan: Given that Milwaukee is, by most measures, the most segregated city in the country, I'm sure the planners can answer subby's dogwhistle if they want.

One of the reasons for that is the Great Migration came to Milwaukee rather late in the process (late 60s or so) - so the Black middle class barely got going here before the economic recession of the 70s wiped everybody out.  Very little home ownership, not a lot of local businesses set up yet, and all the blue collar jobs - especially the ones on the north side of the city which had high rates of Black employment - started leaving in droves. So unlike cities like Chicago or Detroit or where at least a portion of the Black diaspora could ride out the crisis with - for example - the equity in their homes (even though they would probably never be able to sell them due to real estate values in those areas hitting rock bottom) it created kind of a permanent underclass.

Milwaukee doesn't have any more of a "know your place, ni-BONG" problem than any other city - the issue is that since American society isn't exactly set up for Black upward mobility in the first place, Blacks in Milwaukee are starting at an even lower place on the ladder because there _isn't_ that legacy socioeconomic residual community there to help push them up.
