Racism reared its ugly head in Memphis, Tennessee after a flash mob gang directed people to give whites a ‘beatdown’. The cowards took down the social media posts after they gained attention. They might want to be careful they don’t run into someone who’s armed.

A group calling themselves the Memphis Flash Mob Cartel took to social media saying they’ll be at the Wolfchase Galleria mall beating down people because of the color of their skin.

It could be a hoax or it could really happen, but either way it’s getting a reaction.

Feelings of concern started to sweep social media.

“Very alarming to just be picking people out to do damage to them, that doesn’t make any sense,” Brenda Thompson said.Thompson doesn’t understand why anyone would choose to cause more division in the city.

“I think it’s crazy like everything else in Memphis, does it mean white people? I don’t understand, I don’t know.”

The threats on social media were pulled down and can’t be found.

UPDATE: The Memphis police were able to locate the gang members who threatened to give ‘beatdowns’ to white people. The gang members claimed to police that the social media posts were a “joke”.
