The Wikipedia "encyclopedia" contains some of the most absurd and weirdest comments ever made in all of history. Some idiot has written that a "gang war" involving "black" gangsters existed in New York in the 1920s. That is a crazy statement. Negroes were shoe-shine boys, janitors, chauffeurs, porters, and servants in New York City, not gangsters. Superslum 17:33, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
