DISCONNECT IN AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN NEIGHBORHOOD

It occured to me the other day, that the "soul food" restuarant in my neighborhood isn't run by African Americans, Africans nor any person with African roots! How can this business be so successful?

Police Copters

What is up with the police helicopters flying over the mall every night between 8 and 9? They fly so low some nights they shake the house. They circle with their bright light and then they fly away.  That does not happen on the westside. Why here?  There can't possibly be that much crime activity the same time every night. Is this something that community leaders asked for? I'm new so enlighten me.
