I'm all for the Black Spring Break. We need the commerce here on the Ms. coast. It's time to welcome new folks to the area and we have lots to offer now. If for no other reason than to come visit and see how we have bounced back from Katrina and that hospitality is up and running.

Mr. Saltarelli, you must not have been here for the last one. Many businesses closed because of the vandalism. So what of what commerce do you speak?

I completely concur with "Google it". You must not have been here for the last Black Spring Break. They acted like a bunch of rabid animals urinating on cars, people and buildings, raping multiple women, robbing people, breaking windows etc. etc. So tell me why ANYONE other than the savages themselves welcome it back to Biloxi? Biloxi is not big enough to handle that kind of event like Daytona, Miami or other larger spring break locations are. The police force as well as the fire department and local ambulance services are not nearly sufficient to provide adequate coverage or protection. I recommend either leaving Biloxi that weekend or locking your doors and sitting in your house with your loaded shotgun.

This will be my first time down here with this event...but I have heard nothing but bad comes from this...why would anyone want such an event to occur in Biloxi...it does not generate funds really if people tear things up and cost the tax payer a bundle of money for clean up of the city. I am feeling so much sadness for this town..not much has been brought back to Biloxi..and when you drive around all you see is trash from the back bay to interstate 10... Very Sad to say the least.

Are you kidding me? Spring Break + alcohol + masses of idiot kids of any race = BOMB SQUAD...Based on past experience at ALL spring break locations.

I know for a fact that you don't even KNOW 90% of white people, so how can you claim to "really dislike" people you don't know? Who's really the racist here?? I like good people, regardless of their race, color, religion, etc... Until attitudes on BOTH SIDES change, there will always be racism, sad but true. Hatred is a waste of a way-too short life.

I was here when the kids came to the coast. Some got out of line just like the other Spring Breakers, The were taunted by the police department, doors shut in their faces, and treated like common criminals for no reason. Many were locked up just because. When the other Spring Breakers were here, some of them were even out of line than the Black Spring Breakers. Yes, truly, I welcome them and wish that they would come more often.

They have nothing else to do with taxpayers money but to throw it away. I just left from the beach and the kids are just sitting on the flood wall, no problems at all but you wouldn't believe that with all the polices around. You would have thought it was a massive shooting or something.

It is truly is amazing to see how people of all races respond to this event! I understand the turn of events that happened some 8-9 years ago. But you shouldn’t solely prejudge a group based off of that. Is it because it was a group of blacks? If it was a group of white spring breakers would you all be posting the same ridiculous statements? This event turned out pretty well for the most part. Yes, there were a few arrests and most importantly some revenue brought into this area. For the folks that just couldn’t stand the sight savages coming to their town, this event was enjoyed by ALL RACES!

Why are the white people called "racist",when a group of one race name an event "Black Spring Break", They seem to be the racist. What would black people call an event named "White Spring Brake?" I bet it would be the talk of the town,about how we are the racist. Why not just call it Spring Break like everybody else.
